With millions of Apple smartphone users across the globe, it’s no surprise that the Apple iPhone SE 3 ranked in third place, with just over 285,000 global searches last year. The iPhone SE 3 is a perfect alternative for those who might not want to wait until the end of the year for a new iPhone, with a potential release rumored as early as March 2022.
Models from Chinese brands Vivo (the V23 garnered 195,700 global searches) and Xiaomi (the Xiaomi 12 received 165,300 searches) make up the top five most anticipated releases. Interestingly, the only foldable phones to find themselves in the top 20 are the Oppo Find N and Google’s Pixel Fold, and Finnish brand Nokia places highly in the ninth position with the much-anticipated X50.
