After the relatively boring week 19, this week properly shook things up with a bunch of exciting announcements, which really shook up our trending chart.
The OnePlus 7 Pro went official and unsurprisingly took advantage of that to leap to the top. The new flagship was sitting just behind the Samsung Galaxy A50 for the past two weeks when it was still only a rumor and now that it’s a real thing it had no trouble dethroning the Samsung mid-ranger.
The vanilla OnePlus 7 didn’t get as much attention previously, but it still managed to make the podium this week, pushing another Galaxy A phone off it – the A70 now sits in fourth.
In fifth we have another phone to debut this week – the Asus Zenfone 6 looks to have what it takes to really make an impact with its impressive price and no-compromise hardware.
Redmi Note 7 slid down to sixth, but impressively managed to keep another great phone to debut this week – the Realme X. The tenth Realme phone offers amazing hardware for its $220 price, but its availability will be initially limited to China, which is probably what prevented it from reaching an even higher place.
Huawei P30 Pro and P30 lite are now down to eight and ninth, while the Samsung Galaxy S10+ makes a return to claim the final spot. That last bit is a particularly impressive achievement in a week where the competition was stirred up by so many new announcements.
This means that the Google Pixel 3a XL, Samsung Galaxy A30 and Redmi Note 7 Pro lose out this time and drop off the chart. We’ll see if they manage to make a return once the dust around the phones of this week settles.
