    iPhone 13 ALTERNATIVES! From Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy Z Flip 3 to iQOO 9 Pro
    Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
    1/5 Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3- You can get the Galaxy Z Flip 3 for as low as Rs. 81,990 on Amazon. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 has a foldable 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz display which folds into half. There is an outer small display for taking a peek at notifications and alarms. The Snapdragon 888 chip inside is plenty fast and Samsung will support it for three more years with OS updates. It has also got a pair of nice cameras. The Flip 3 has sub-par battery life though and pro users should refrain from it. (Samsung)

    2/5 iQOO 9 Pro- The iQOO 9 Pro is currently the most performance-oriented smartphone you can buy and it is priced at Rs. 64,990. With a 120Hz Quad HD+ AMOLED display, an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, a 120W fast charging solution, a 50MP + 50MP + 16MP triple rear camera setup, the iQOO 9 Pro is a true powerhouse. In its BMW M Motorsport colours, it looks exciting as well. Overall, the most fun flagship for the price of an iPhone 13. (Amritanshu / HT Tech)
    Samsung S22
    3/5 Samsung Galaxy S22- The Samsung Galaxy S22 is one of the best smartphones available in the market right now. It is priced at Rs. 72,999. It has almost bezel-less display and flat sides, as well as premium glass-metal construction. The cameras are among the best in the business, and so is its AMOLED display.

    4/5 Xiaomi 12 Pro- Starting at Rs. 62,999, the Xiaomi 12 Pro is another feature-packed smartphone to consider.

    5/5 Motorola Edge 30 Pro- the Motorola Edge 30 Pro is much cheaper than the iPhone 13 but it earned a place in this list due to its great software experience. It is priced at Rs. 49,999. In fact, the Edge 30 Pro offers a very Pixel 6-like experience. The phone uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, which makes it very fast for almost everything you throw at it. It gets a 4800mAh battery with 67W fast wired charging and support for wireless charging. It has a decent triple camera setup with the 50MP + 50MP + 2 MP rear cameras. (Motorola)

    It is less than a week before Samsung unveils the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 devices to the world. While the Flip 4 is largely expected to remain unchanged, it is the Fold 4 that will be getting a lot more changes this year. A wider Cover Display could result in a more practical display, and the same could be applied for the Main Display. Samsung won't be changing the design of the phone this year, unlike the previous generations of Fold devices. However, the phone will be stronger than the Fold 3 from last year.

    Based on a tip from tipster Ahmed Qwaider, it is said that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will get Gorilla Glass Victus+ protection on both front and rear, i.e. the Cover Display and the rear panel. The phone will use the newer and more power efficient Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. This should help keep the phone cool and calm compared to the Galaxy S22 models. The main display is also said to have a higher peak brightness of 1000 nits and a refresh rate of 120Hz.

    Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 specs leak ahead of launch

    Samsung is also doing something about the charging speeds. No, the leak does not speak about a faster 45W charger or a smaller battery. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is said to have a similar 4400mAh capacity battery and the same 25W charging. Samsung will, however, tune the charging accordingly to allow the same charger to fill up the battery to 50 percent in 30 minutes – the Fold 3 can only do up to 33 percent charge in the same time.

    Note that these are just leaked specifications and you should wait until the official announcement from Samsung on these devices. Note that Samsung has so far teased only the Flip 4 in its teasers and not spoken much about the Fold 4.

    The Flip 4, on the other hand, is said to have the same Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, a bigger 3700mAh battery with 25W charging, and more functions for the Cover Display.
