Samsung dominated the list with its smartphones ranging from high-end to flagship. Meanwhile, Huawei’s first-ever foldable smartphone, the Huawei P50 Pocket, got the top spot as the most expensive smartphone launched in the Philippines in the first quarter of 2022.
Based on the list, most of the higher-range smartphones are powered by Qualcomm’s latest flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. To recap, the chipset comes with one Cortex-X2 prime core at 3GHz, three Cortex-A710 performance cores at 2.5GHz, and four Cortex-A510 efficiency cores at 1.8GHz with a 35 percent performance boost and 20 percent efficiency improvement. Overall, it is 20 percent more powerful and 30 percent more power-efficient compared to its predecessor.
Unlike the mid-range segment, almost all of the handsets on the list support 5G connectivity. 5G is more faster and efficient than 4G LTE.
We expect to see more premium, high-end, and flagship smartphones launch in the country in the coming months. In the meantime, you may check our previous articles on the price list of entry-level smartphones and mid-range smartphones during the same period.
