These five mid-range smartphone will debut in 2019.

Sony Xperia 10 | The Sony Xperia 10 brings the same 21:9 cinema-wide aspect ratio for an immersive viewing experience. But that’s about it, in terms of performance, the Xperia 10 runs on a less-than-impressive Snapdragon 636 chipset. The cinema viewing experience touted by Sony isn’t helped by the Xperia 10’s LCD panel rather than a superior OLED panel.

Mi 9 SE | The Mi 9 SE takes its cues from 2019’s best value-for-money flagship smartphone. The Mi 9 SE’s no compromise approach is evident with its Snapdragon 712 SoC, 6GB of RAM and AMOLED display. While the Mi 8 SE never saw a release outside China, the Mi 9 SE may launch globally under a different name.

P30 Lite | Huawei’s P30 Lite is a mid-range handset with a triple camera setup for an excellent photography experience for the price. However, that’s about it, the P30 Lite doesn’t feature any major improvements in terms of battery, chipset and display. It features the same Kirin 710 SoC found on the Nova 3i. Huawei’s decision to go with an LCD panel rather than an OLED also doesn’t work in the P30 Lite’s favour.
