Unlike new offerings in the lower mid-range segment, it can be observed how mid-range smartphones have mostly entered 5G territory. This carries over the trend from 2021 which began to see this mid-range level crowded by phones with 5G capability. It has to be noted that the Philippines began its 5G rollout in 2020. Actual 5G coverage, however, remains to be limited nationwide. Yet similar to the lower mid-range segment, Xiaomi (POCO, Redmi) appears to dominate the number of new offerings in the mid-range segment.
