Autumn is over, so it’s time to take stock. For three months, almost all manufacturers have presented one or even several flagship smartphones. Also, a lot of decent but affordable solutions have appeared on the market. In this article, we’ll take a look at a few of the most notable smartphones that have been introduced over the past three months.
All technologies in one place
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro + is the most technologically advanced smartphone of the fall. It has everything users need and don’t need to eat either. The flagship has a screen with an increased refresh rate, a 5-nanometer processor with a record frequency. There is support for 5G, IP68 water protection, a large battery, 3D face recognition, and a lot of memory.
The main camera has a huge 1 / 1.28 “type sensor with 1.22-micron pixels. There are also two telephoto lenses at once: 8-megapixel with 10x zoom and 12-megapixel with 3x zoom. Each uses optical stabilization, and video can be shot in various formats, including 4K UHD @ 60 fps and 720p @ 3840 fps.
An almost uncompromising flagship
Apple has released the most balanced flagship smartphone ever. It’s about the iPhone 12 Pro Max. It has a good camera and a good processor, which Samsung’s Exynos models cannot boast of. There is also good software that Huawei is having trouble with.
However, there is a nuance. If you want to buy an iPhone 12 Pro Max, you will have to pay over $1300 for it. The top modification with 512 GB of permanent memory will cost $1900 at all. 5G support is also provided in the smartphone. The downside is the lack of support for increased refresh rates.
Best Compact Flagship
Without options, the best flagship smartphone in a compact package is the iPhone 12 mini. It offers users a 5.4-inch FHD + OLED panel. The model turned out to be smaller than the iPhone SE 2020 with a 4.7-inch display.
The iPhone 12 is powered by the 5nm Apple A14 Bionic chipset, the world’s first SoC in the world. The main camera is equipped with two 12 megapixel modules. A sensor with the same resolution is installed in the front cameras. The mini version also retained one of the older models’ features in the face of Face ID.
Best flagship available
The “killer” of flagships this year was presented not by OnePlus, but by Xiaomi. In the fall, she launched the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro models. Both got the Snapdragon 865, 5000mAh battery, and 144Hz LCD panel. On December 1, smartphones were announced in Russia.
The difference lies in the amount of memory and the main camera. The standard edition received 64 megapixels, 13 megapixels, 5 megapixels without optical stabilization, and 128 GB of storage. The Pro version has a 108-megapixel optical image stabilization module and a storage capacity of 256 GB.
Top for your money
Also, Xiaomi, at the end of November, managed to present a model that will claim the title of the bestseller in early 2021. It’s called Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. Starting at $ 250, this is the most affordable smartphone with a 108MP camera.
The new product has a Snapdragon 750G chip, 120-Hz IPS matrix, and a built-in battery capacity is 4820 mAh. The model is offered in modifications with 6/8 GB operational and 128/256 GB permanent. In addition to the 108MP sensor, the main camera also has an 8MP ultra-wide-angle module and two 2MP sensors—selfie camera resolution – 16 megapixels.

Smartphone for the budget-conscious
Here, too, it was not without the Chinese company Xiaomi. She presented a rather interesting model called POCO M3, which in 4/64 GB and 4/128 GB versions cost $ 150 and $ 170, respectively.
The smartphone is equipped with a Snapdragon 662 chip. The main features are the back design in the style of the OnePlus CyberPunk 2077 Limited Edition and a 6000 mAh battery. It is also worth noting the main camera with a resolution of 48 Mp + 2 Mp + 2 Mp and a front camera of 8 Mp. NFC is missing.
