We were expecting the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max to capitalize on its market launch and try to retake the lead it lost last week, but it came just short. The reason was that a shocking new leader emerged from the rumor mill.
The Realme 7 5G was officially confirmed to debut next week and it seems it really got everyone's attention. It easily topped our trending chart ahead of the Pro Max and another yet-to-be-announced phone – the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. The upcoming Xiaomi mid-ranger completes its second week in the top 3 even though it's still some way from official status – certainly a good indication for the future.
