It’s the first full week of February and you can already feel the storm brewing up. In fact the first high-profile announcement came this week with the Poco X2 going official.
Unsurprisingly it also topped our trending chart – it was already first last week before we had the full picture and the promo campaign wasn’t underway. It will be interesting to see if it manages to hold off the Galaxy S20 and Mi 10 lineups which are coming next week.
Anyway, the Samsung Galaxy A51 and Redmi Note 8 Pro retained their positions and are still second and third this week.
Behind them the Galaxy A71 has jumped three places to take fourth, while the Redmi Note 8 and the upcoming Galaxy S20 Ultra stay fifth and sixth.
In seventh we have the Galaxy Note10 Lite, while the Huawei nova 7i makes a surprising appearance in eight, breaking the Samsung/Xiaomi duopoly.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite has also used its expanded market availability to enter the top 10, while the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is down in the last spot. The new Xiaomi flagship will undoubtedly bounce back next week when it gets announced in China, but it remains to be seen how it will fare against the inevitable Galaxy S20 invasion.
The relegated phones this week are the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy A50. The latter was by far the longest serving member of our top 10, making the chart almost every week after its announcement in February 2019, so it truly feels like the end of an era.
