MSP Tech Insights November 2023: iPhone 15 Drops Out of The Top 10 Ranking, Moto Edge 40 New Favourite Among Indians

iPhone 15 Series drops out of top 10 ranking in the November edition of MSP Tech Insights. More details here.


While the Chinese smartphone market was busy witnessing the launch of flagship devices last month, the Indian smartphone market was all about old phones returning to the mainstream, all thanks to the attractive sales and Diwali offers on e-commerce portals. Shockingly enough, this also means that the flagship iPhone 15 lineup has been replaced by budget 5G devices after holding the top spot for the past two months. We talk about this more and more in the latest edition of MSP Tech Insights.

The data has been collected from over 15 million shoppers who visited our platform last month to make their gadget purchase decisions. Without further ado, let’s check out the MySmartPrice Tech Insights report for November 2023.

However, it would be interesting to see how the recently launched Redmi 13C would affect its popularity, for it is priced more affordably.

5. Vivo T2 Pro

The Vivo T2 Pro was on the tenth spot on the September edition of MSP Tech Insights, and was knocked out of the top 10 devices last month. Now, it has returned to the list and placed itself in the fifth spot, most likely due to exciting offers on the smartphone.

Another new entrant in the list is the Realme 11x 5G which is priced under Rs 15,000 in India. The phone features a glittery design on the back with a circular camera module. It is one of the cheapest 5G devices available in India and the recent e-commerce sales might have boosted its sales because of which it has been listed here.

Top Upcoming Smartphones in India (November 2023)

As always, we can see that users are excited about the smartphones that are yet to launch. Here are the top devices that MySmartPrice users are eagerly waiting for.

1. Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus

Xiaomi is expected to launch the Redmi Note 13 Series in India in January 2024. The series went official in China in September, and the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus is the highest-end variant. It ships with a Dimensity 7200 Ultra chipset, 200MP primary camera, 120W fast charging, and more.

2. OnePlus Ace 2 Pro

The OnePlus Ace 2 Pro is one of the most popular upcoming devices that the Indian audience wants to see in the market. However, considering that the Ace series from OnePlus has not launched in the country yet, it may not make its way to the country. This is the first device to feature 24GB of RAM and 1TB of internal storage along with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC and 150W charging.

3. OnePlus 12

The OnePlus 12 has gone official this week in China and is likely to launch in India in January. It is one of the most anticipated flagship smartphones, not just in India but worldwide. OnePlus’s latest premium phone uses a BOE X1 oriental screen with 4500 nits peak brightness and a 2K resolution. It ships with a 50-megapixel Sony LYT-808 sensor, which is said to be an upgrade over the Sony IMX 966 sensor.

4. Redmi Note 13 Pro

The Redmi Note lineup is a popular series in India, so two devices from the upcoming Note series being on this list is not a big surprise. The Redmi Note 13 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 SoC and supports 67W fast charging support.

5. iQOO 12 5G

The iQOO 12 will launch on December 12 and is India’s first flagship device to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. MySmartPrice was the first to report that it will launch under Rs 55,000 in India. The iQOO 12 also comes with flagship cameras which we tested in Jaisalmer.

With several flagship launches happening during this month and the next one, we speculate these devices will make headlines all thanks to their top-of-the-line spec sheets. We will be talking more about this in the next edition of MSP Tech Insights, so stay tuned.
