Both cameras have a 32MP selfie-taker. Two different battery capacities are available: The X80 Pro has a 4,700mAh battery and the Dimensity 9000 SoC, which both run on a 4,500mAh battery.

The Redmi Note 12 is number eight on our list.
The Redmi Note 12 series has been teased by Redmi. The Note 12 and Note 12 Pro are very much in the works for this series. CEO Lu Weibing has hinted that the series’ release date will be announced shortly, despite the fact that the firm has yet to do so. Based on the Note series’ launch patterns, we believe it will be available in China by the end of the month.
The Note 12 series is expected to give a big performance boost over its predecessors this time around, as well. However, there is no information on the chipset that will be used in the phones. The camera’s design and specifications are likewise unknown. However, given that it is now May, we may expect to see more teasers for the show in the days to come.
In ninth place, we have the Samsung Galaxy A04s.
The Galaxy A04s are scheduled to be unveiled by Samsung later this month. On the Internet, you can see the phone’s renderings. The Galaxy A03s will be replaced by this smartphone, which will be better in terms of both design and specifications.
There will be an entirely new design on the back of the Samsung Galaxy A04s, but the waterdrop notch screen will still be present. The smartphone’s screen will be 6.5 inches in size and have a resolution of HD+. It’s expected to have an entry-level chipset and a triple camera setup on the back. The Android 12 operating system is expected to run on the device, which is expected to contain a 3.5mm headphone port.
