Considered by many to be a phone geek’s dream high-end android smartphone brand, OnePlus is keeping its product portfolio slim with two distinct offerings: the enthusiast-focused 8 and 8T 5G.

The company has also introduced the Nord, a range of budget-focused phones. Tapping into the entry level crowd is the Nord N10 5G, one of the latest additions.


(L to R): Oppo Find X2 Pro 5G, Realme X50 Pro 5G and Vivo X50 Pro 5G.

Well-known for innovation in mobile imaging, Oppo’s Find X2 Pro 5G boasts an impressive camera specification with a triple-camera setup: standard-wide, 5x telephoto and 16mm ultra-wide cameras.

The standard-wide camera uses a 1/1.4-inch 48MP sensor, 26mm-equivalent lens and f/1.7 aperture. The ultrawide camera features f/2.2 lenses, while the 13MP 5x tele-camera offers optical image stabilisation, albeit at a lower f/3 aperture.

Realme

Realme might be best known for its cheap smartphones, but Realme is trying to penetrate the high-end of the market with the X50 Pro 5G, its first flagship 5G smartphone.

As well its 5G connectivity, it also carries a quad rear camera and huge display. Its claim to high-end positioning comes with its latest processing hardware, along with a Vapour Cooling System.

Vivo

Vivo is known for the first elevating front camera and in-display fingerprint scanner. With the X50 Pro 5G, it crams a full gimbal system for its primary 48MP rear camera. Vivo claims it’s more effective than regular image stabilisation.

For folks who are particular about price, the X50E 5G does away with the gimbal system, offers the same processor, but with more advanced 5G connectivity options.
