7 Best Smartphones Releasing in May 2023
Vivo X90 Pro
After several months of its initial release in China, Vivo X90 Pro is slated to go on sale in the South Asian markets in May.
The Vivo X90 Pro device comes equipped with MediaTek Dimensity 9200 based on the 4 Nm architecture. The GPU on the X90 Pro moves away from the conventional Adreno or Mali to Immortalis-G715.
But the most striking feature of the X90 Pro has to be the 1-inch Zeiss main sensor churning out 50.3 MP with additional 50 MP telephoto and a 12 MP ultrawide shooter. The large sensor accounts for some incredible performance thanks to the Zeiss Optics and T* lens coating. Additionally, there is a 32 MP front shooter on the device.
Users will be able to get up to 12 GB RAM and 512 GB ROM on the X90 Pro, one of the highest available in the market.
Motorola Edge 40
Motorola is all set to announce their upper mid-range Edge 40 sometime in mid-May. The device is expected to hit the market at a later date this month.
The Edge 40 brings a host of changes from the previous gen including the updated Dimensity 8020 processor with a single 8 GB RAM option. Users will see a boost in performance thanks to the optimization and the smooth 144 Hz P-OLED display.
On the camera front, users will be getting a triple camera setup with a 50 MP main shooter, 13 MP ultrawide, and a 2 MP depth sensor. There will also be a 32 MP selfie camera on the front.
The expected price of the Motorola Edge 40 is around 600 Euro or 69,905 BDT which puts it on the higher tier among upper mid-ranges released this year 1 Euro = 116 BDT).
The GT3 from realme is another case of delayed global release. The device was officially announced in late April for Mainland China. Now the GT3 will debut globally sometime in late May.
The GT3 is a proper flagship device from realme. The sleek dual-tone back design is complemented by a near bezel-less front. The GT3 comes with a 144 Hz AMOLED panel with 1240P resolution and up to 1100 nits of brightness.
The sleek display is coupled with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset based on the 4 Nm architecture. This year Realme has pushed the storage and RAM capacity up to 1 TB and 16 GB respectively.
The device boasts a triple camera setup with a 50 MP main sensor, 8 MP ultrawide, and a 2 MP microsensor. The front has a 16MP selfie camera.
The 4600 mAh included battery might feel less compared to standard flagships. But the insane 240W wired charging is a complete game-changer here. realme claims that the GT3 can go from 0 to 50% in just 4 minutes and a full charge in 10 minutes.
