Whenever you think that there is no more room in Xiaomi’s smartphone portfolio, the Chinese surprise us again. Now the next high-end smartphone is in the starting blocks. The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite was officially launched in mid-september – and we wonder why.
What are the best smartphones on the Chinese market? Which phones can do it bigger, better, faster – and cheaper? Those are only a few of the questions we’d like to get behind in this category. Ranging from Xiaomi to Leagoo, Doogee, OnePlus and others: If it’s from China and able to make phone calls, we want to write about it!
Even if the manufacturer Oppo hasn’t said much to you so far, if you follow the current top models you might have heard about Oppo Find X at the latest. The Oppo R17 offers a waterdrop notch and the Pro version even gets a triple camera.
Vivo and Huawei have triggered a lot of hype with their respective flagships this year. Elephone also wants to get involved and uses the Huaweis Triple Camera Concept and Vivo’s Pop-Up Camera Concept – and even goes one better with the Elephone PX.
Yes, another Xiaomi flagship. The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 will be the third smartphone of the manufacturer with the Snpadragon 845 processor. The special feature: the Poco F1 is to be launched directly on the European market, and OnePlus is about to take up the fight.

The Vivo NEX Ultimate caused a sensation among us and smartphone enthusiasts worldwide. It offers a fingerprint sensor in the display, a front camera that can be pulled out of the housing and a display (without notch!), which deserves the designation “borderless” more than any other. But is so much innovation also suitable for everyday use?
The next highly anticipated successor. After it should come first, then again denied, the Xiaomi Mi A2 is now the second Android One-Smartphone of Xiaomi. It is identical in construction to the Mi 6X and offers a powerful processor and a super camera. But with this smartphone you also have to make some compromises.

The UMIDIGI Z2 is currently on the market, unfortunately the UMIDIGI Z2 Pro is not yet available. Nevertheless, the manufacturer is already sending the next smartphone onto the market. The UMIDIGI One and the UMIDIGI One Pro look damn similar to the flagship, but try to set different accents.

Ulefone has already excelled this year with the Ulefone T2 Pro. While this will be the new flagship of the manufacturer, the new Ulefone Power 5 hits into a completely different notch. With a 13,000 mAh battery you send a new battery monster into the race.
