As we conclude the first week of the year 2023 we find our chart with the most unusual of leaders. The Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola as is its official name was the most major announcement at CES 2023 and even though it’s only meant as a B2B product it certainly got you guys paying attention.
In second we have the Redmi Note 12, which just made its debut in India. In a long-standing Xiaomi tradition, the global model is different from the Chinese one even if the two are called the same.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra completes the podium, just edging out the Redmi Note 12 Pro, which had to settle for fourth.
The Redmi K60 Pro, which debuted just after Christmas and went on sale in the first day of the new year, sits in fifth. It managed to stay ahead of the newly unveiled OnePlus flagship – the 11 (the company is dropping the Pro from the name this year).
Two long-serving members of the top 10 follow, the Samsung Galaxy A53 places ahead of the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max in seventh and eight.
Xiaomi 13 Pro was the leader in the last edition of the trending chart, but after the two-week hiatus it’s down to ninth. It will inevitably bounce back once international availability comes, though.
The final spot goes to the Apple iPhone XR – by far the oldest phone in the top 10. Introduced back in 2018 and even then as a more affordable model the colorful XR just refuses to leave the spotlight.
See you next week!
