The trending chart this week was mostly driven by the rumor mill as the phones coming in the next few days got the most attention.
The Realme 7 Pro got the lion's share of attention, ahead of the Oppo F17 Pro - the two managed to dethrone the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra days before their official debuts.
The former leader is now on the third step of the podium, just ahead of the Redmi Note 9 Pro, which retains fourth.
The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra has lost a lot of ground and is now fifth, as the newly announced Infinix Zero 8 enters the chart in sixth.
The Redmi Note 9 is down to seventh, as the Zenfone 7 Pro captures eight. The Pro version replaces its vanilla sibling in the chart.
The Samsung Galaxy A51 is now ninth, while yet another rumored phone, the Realme X7, completes the chart.
The OnePlus Nord misses out this week, along with the Redmi trio of 9, Note 9 and K30 Ultra.
