The research revealed that 2022’s most anticipated smartphone is the iPhone 14 which will probably be arriving next September. The iPhone 14 series has generated over 1 million global searches in the last year and doubled that of the next phone in the rank, the Samsung Galaxy S22 with 520,000 searches.
With millions of Apple smartphone fans across the globe, there is no surprise that the Apple iPhone SE 3 ranked in third place, with 285,000 global searches last year. The iPhone SE 3 is the best alternative for those users who do not want to wait until the end of the year for a new iPhone.
Other Models from Chinese brands like Vivo V23 garnered 195,700 global searches and Xiaomi 12 received 165,300 searches making up the top five most anticipated releases.
Interestingly, the only foldable phones to find themselves in the top 20list is the Oppo Find N, the Google Pixel Fold, and the Finnish brand Nokia places highly in the ninth position with the much-anticipated X50.
While the base model iPhone 14 will reportedly be similar to the 13 when in its looks, the Pro, Pro Max, and the new model of the iPhone 14 Max will have a complete redesign. This is set to include various camera and processing improvements.
