Our ranking of the best smartphones , which is updated every month, is the reference point in Italy for an informed choice and a satisfactory purchase of a new phone. Do you think that in 2019 in only 1 quarter, more than 60 smartphones were presented in the world, adding to an already large array of products, so how to understand which smartphone is best suited to your needs?
For this reason this buying guide was born, aimed at suggesting the best purchases by offering you some options on each price range, in this way you can first of all start from your budget, or how much you are willing to spend. In this guide to the best smartphones by price range you can find both phones released in 2022 and in 2021, the latter in fact could have dropped in price, actually improving their quality / price ratio.
How we choose the best smartphones
Our ranking of the best smartphones is based on a series of considerations so that only the most valid products can be included. Here are the main criteria by which we select the best mobile phones:
- only tested and tried smartphones: we try and test numerous smartphones monthly, thus being able to offer a complete and truthful overview of the market, for this reason we will include in this ranking only products that have been tested, tried and considered valid, so as to avoid making judgments on paper that often do not they have an acknowledgment with reality;
- Hardware characteristics: the technical characteristics are important and for this reason it is one of the factors that we take into consideration, at this point, however, the next one is tied hand in glove;
- User experience and software: a very important aspect for us is the user experience that a smartphone can offer. In our ranking we have included only products suitable for daily use and which are able to optimally balance hardware and software specifications, after all it is useless to have a product with TOP technical characteristics if it then takes 30 seconds to take a picture, right?
- Quality / price ratio: finally, our criterion for selecting the best smartphones is the relationship between the quality offered and the price at which it is sold. This factor is constantly changing, thanks to the devaluation of online prices, and for this reason the ranking is updated monthly.
Best low-end smartphone (less than 200 euros)
If you are looking for the best smartphone under 200 euros , in this range the choice is already very varied, several valid products that can accompany you even for over 1 year of use.
- Realme 8 5G
- LITTLE M5
- Samsung GalaxyA22 5G
- Redmi Note 10S
Realme 8 5G
It is available in our country from May 2021, in two memory variants and two different colors. The 6.5-inch screen, along with not particularly optimized bezels, brings the dimensions to 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.5 millimeters, with a weight of 185 grams. So the compromise between ergonomics and screen is not bad, too bad for the plastic back cover with a decidedly cheap appearance. The 5,000 mAh battery, which now seems to be a fixed point in this price range, allows you to get to at least 8 hours of screen and a couple of days of autonomy, as long as you don’t overdo it with 5G. Also in this case the 48 megapixel sensor alone is able to take good quality photos, even in more difficult situations. Substantially useless the other two sensors, depth and macro that do not help to improve the quality of the shots.
It arrived in Italy in mid-September 2022 and is on sale in two different colors and as many memory cuts. The dimensions are generous, 164 x 76.1 x 8.1 for 201 grams, many even for a smartphone with a 6.58-inch screen. Ergonomics is not the best but quality and finishes make this problem less evident. With a 5,000 mAh battery it is easy to arrive in the evening even on the most demanding days and with a few tricks you can easily reach two days of use on a single charge. The camera consists of a 50 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.8) which is flanked by two 2 megapixel sensors of little use in everyday use. The photos are sufficient during the day but worsen significantly at night, with the details that get mixed up a lot.
Samsung Galaxy A22 5G
It was announced in June 2022 but it was necessary to wait until autumn to see it on the Italian market, in four colors and with different memory variants. It is anything but compact with its 167.2 x 76.4 x 9 millimeters and 200 grams of weight, also due to a 6.6-inch screen and not particularly accurate optimizations. It is almost impossible to use it with one hand and feels in your pocket. The autonomy is good but not very well, despite a 5,000 mAh battery. You can arrive in the evening but with about 5 hours of screen on, not the best given the battery available, but with a little attention you can cover even the busiest day. The shots of days are good, but when the light goes down a fair amount of noise appears and the focus is not always fast.
Redmi Note 10S
Presented in the spring of 2021 along with three other models, it represents the ideal compromise for those who want a fair compromise between price and performance. Despite a smaller screen than other variants (it uses a 6.43-inch panel) the dimensions are not exactly compact: 160.46 x 74.5 x 8.29 mm. Overall, however, the ergonomics are not bad, thanks also to the weight of 178.8 grams which makes it usable even with one hand. The 5,000 mAh battery is one of the highlights of this model, and thanks to the fast charging at 33 watts it will always be ready for use. A full charge takes just over an hour, but the charge covers an entire day of work, even the most intense. Four main camera sensors: one of 64 megapixels (f / 1.
Best low-mid-range smartphone (less than 300 euros)
We continue our best selection with the best smartphones between 200 and 300 euros, another very thick and interesting range with interesting improvements in terms of technical specifications.
- Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE
- Motorola Edge 20
- Samsung Galaxy M52 5G
- Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G
- OnePlus Nord 2 5G
Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE
It arrived in mid-September 2021 to make up for the lack of chips that made the previous model impossible to find, from which it inherits the design. The dimensions, in particular weight and thickness, are one of the strengths, despite a metal chassis. It measures 160.53 x 75.63 x 6.81 mm and weighs just 158 grams, a featherweight these days. The 4,250 mAh battery guarantees excellent autonomy and the fast charge at 33 watts allows you to fill up with energy in about 60 minutes. Difficult not to arrive in the evening with a charge, unless you overdo it. There remains the excellent rear camera with 74 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.79) which is flanked by an 8 megapixel (f.2.2) ultra wide-angle sensor (FoV 119 degrees) and a 5 megapixel telemacro sensor. Very good photos, much better than the 4G version.
Motorola Edge 20
You can buy it in Italy from the end of August 2021, in two different colors and two memory cuts. With a 6.67-inch screen the dimensions are obviously important, despite the good optimization: 163 x 76 x 6.99 mm and 163 grams of lost. Its thickness and weight contribute to above-average ergonomics. Only good autonomy, thanks to a 4,000 mAh battery with 30 watt charging. On the other hand it was difficult to do better with a similar thickness. The triple rear camera can count on a 108 megapixel main sensor which is flanked by a 16 megapixel ultra wide angle and an 8 megapixel 3x optical zoom, a very valid solution in this price range.
Samsung Galaxy M52 5G
Samsung Galaxy M52 has also been in Italy since October 2021 and as for the A52 brothers it is available in only one memory variant. There are several colors available, white, black and blue. Inevitable, given the presence of a 6.7-inch screen, have important dimensions: 164.2 x 76.4 x 7.4 mm and 173 grams of weight). Ergonomics therefore at the limit, in this case Samsung has focused more on the multimedia experience. The 5,000 mah battery, with fast charging at 25 watts, allows you to arrive in the evening without problems, even in case of very demanding use. However, wireless charging is missing. The rear camera is very interesting, with 64 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.8) with OIS, 12 megapixel ultra wide angle (f / 2.2) and 5 megapixel telemacro (f / 2.4). Great photos,
Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G
You can buy it in Italy from August 2021 in a single version with 6-128 GB of memory and in four different colors, including two very special ones. It is certainly not a compact, but given the presence of a 6.5-inch screen, the dimensions are not bad: 159.9 x 75.1 x 8.4 mm and 189 grams of weight. To report the IP67 certification and the 120 Hz screen that offer an excellent user experience. The 4,500 mAh battery, with fast charging at 25 watts, does not shine with autonomy and allows you to reach 5 hours of screen with difficulty. The use of a fast recharge to arrive in the evening cannot be ruled out. There are four main camera sensors: a 64 megapixel (f / 1.8), a 12 megapixel (f / 2.2) ultra wide angle (FoV 123 degrees), a 5 megapixel macro (f / 2.4) and a depth sensor 5 megapixel (f / 2.4). Apart from the inevitable suffering from the wide-angle lens (although the HDR mode helps a lot), the main camera defends itself well in all circumstances. The videos are good too
OnePlus Nord 2 5G
Best medium-high-end smartphone (less than 400 euros)
On the under 400 euro range, there are many alternatives, with 5G connectivity, pushed cameras and great autonomy, in short, you start to get serious.
- LITTLE F4
- OnePlus Nord 2T
- Apple iPhone 7
- Motorola Edge 30
- OPPO Find X3 Neo
Available for purchase from the end of June 2022, the smartphone is on sale in two different memory variants and three different colors. POCO has done a good job of optimization: 163.2 x 75.95 x 7.7 mm and 195 grams of weight are not bad if we consider the presence of a 6.67-inch screen. The 4,500 mAh battery, supported by fast charging at 67 watts, allows you to cover the working day without particular problems. With very heavy use it is likely that you will need to resort to an intermediate recharge. Three rear camera sensors: 64 megapixel (f / 1.79), 8 megapixel ultra wide angle (f / 2.2) and 2 megapixel macro. The shots are very good even if sometimes the photos, especially in low light, are not perfectly in focus.
OnePlus Nord 2T
In Italy it is available from the end of May 2022 in two memory sizes and two different colors, with the possibility of buying it also on Amazon. Thanks to a 6.43-inch screen, the dimensions are relatively compact: 159.1 x 73.2 x 8.2 mm and 190 grams of weight. Ergonomics are not bad, too bad for some shortcomings such as the absence of an IP certification and a microSD slot. The 4,500 mAh battery does its thing but you will hardly exceed the 6 hours of screen on. In any case, charging at 80 watts fills up in 20 minutes. Good photographic sector, with main sensor from 50 megapixel (f / 1.88), ultra wide angle (FoV 119 degrees) from 8 megapixel (f / 2.25) and 2 megapixel monochrome sensor (f / 2.5). The wide-angle must be reviewed, since the photos are not always up to par.
Apple iPhone 7
Motorola Edge 30
Presented at the end of April 2022, Edge 30 is available in our country in two different colors and in a single memory cut. It can easily be called a “compact” given its dimensions: 159.38 x 74.23 x 6.79 mm. This despite a 6.5-inch screen, and in addition to a reduced thickness it also has an excellent weight, just 155 grams, thanks to the polycarbonate cover. The 4,050 mAh battery is perhaps its weak point, even if it manages in any case to cover a not too stressful day. It features 33 watt fast charging. The photos are average, thanks to a 50 megapixel sensor which is flanked by a 50 megapixel ultra wide angle and a 2 megapixel sensor. Only at night the quality becomes revisable, otherwise the photos are good.
OPPO Find X3 Neo
OPPO Find X3 Neo is on the market in our country from March 2021 with two colors and a single memory variant, an intelligent choice to simplify the choice for users. Despite being less bulky than the Pro version (159.9 x 72.5 x 8 mm) and weighing 184 grams, the ergonomics are not at the top due to a very slippery back cover. The slightly curved display helps slightly to improve grip, but the use of a protective cover is recommended to avoid damage. Two modules at 2,250 mAh for a total of 4,500 mAh, with wired charging at 65 watts offer good autonomy, even if on the busiest days it is better to lower the refresh rate. Too bad for the absence of wireless charging which would have increased its value. Excellent quality, very similar to that of the Pro version, with only the ultra wide angle to suffer when the light goes down. The 50 megapixel (f / 1.8) main sensor with OIS is flanked by a 16 megapixel (f / 2.2) ultra wide angle, a 13 megapixel 5x hybrid zoom (f / 2.4) and a 2 megapixel macro sensor ( f / 2.4).
Best mid-high-end smartphone (less than 600 euros)
Precisely on this price range, between 400 and 500 euros, there are some of the best top-of-the-range Android smartphones of 2020, which are therefore an excellent alternative for those looking for a top phone while containing the expense. To mess up the cards in 2020, however, a competitor from Apple arrived.

- POCO F4 GT

Apple iPhone SE
The new iPhone SE was presented in the spring of 2020, with three different colors and a look that tastes like you’ve already seen. It is decidedly compact (138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm) and light (148 grams), fully incorporating the appearance of the iPhone 8, including the TouchID and the now obsolete bezels. On its side it has excellent handling, thanks to its extremely small size. Of note is the IP67 certification for resistance to water and dust. A little over 1,800mAh of battery might turn your nose upside down, but the small HD screen helps a lot and it’s not particularly difficult to get into the evening on a charge. A single 12 megapixel rear camera (f / 1.8) inevitably shows its side in some situations, losing the versatility of the more expensive models,
POCO F4 GT
It was launched in Italy on April 26, 2022 and is the first of the brand to be also designed for gaming. It is available in three colors and two different memory sizes. The 6.67-inch AMOLED screen inevitably leads to important dimensions: 162.5 x 76.7 x 8.5 mm and 210 grams of weight are the limit for one-handed use, but overall the ergonomics are satisfying. It has magnetic back triggers that you can pull out to play or perform predefined actions. Despite a 4,700 mAh battery, the autonomy is not perfect, but the 5 hours of screen are easily reached. In any case, the 120 watt recharge allows you to fill up in just 17 minutes. Slightly subdued, compared to the rest of the data sheet, the photographic sector, with 64 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.9),
OnePlus 9 Pro
OnePlus 9 Pro was announced on March 23, 2021 and has been on the market since April 2021 in three different colors and two memory sizes to choose from. With a 6.7-inch screen, dimensions are inevitably important and come in at 163.2 x 73.6 x 8.7 millimeters and 197 grams in weight. The iconic side slider to silence notifications remains, overall the ergonomics are acceptable. The results of the 4500 mAh battery (with fast charging at 65 watts, wireless at 50 watts) are good but not amazing, also the fault of the QHD screen. To arrive in the evening you will have to pay attention to the use you make of it. The collaboration with Hasselblad can be seen, but we are still slightly below the best, especially in terms of color rendering. Enhance the night mode, even if the wide angle is not at
ASUS ZenFone 8
It was presented in Italy in mid-May 2021, immediately obtaining a good response thanks to the top performance combined with compact dimensions. You can buy it in two colors and four memory cuts. As we said, ASUS ZenFone 8 is very compact, 148 x 68.5 x 8.9mm and weighs 169 grams. A figure clearly below average, which makes it easy to use even with one hand. Too bad only for the decidedly anonymous back cover. Given the size it was reasonable to expect a smaller battery than the competition. In reality we find a 4,000 mAh unit that allows you to arrive in the evening, with over 5 and a half hours of screen on. In any case, with a 30 W recharge, one hour is enough to get it back into shape. The quality of the shots leaves something to be desired, and the 64 megapixel sensor (f / 1. 8) struggles with strong light, where white balance problems are noted. The 12-megapixel ultra wide-angle is useful but not perfect.
Google Pixel 6
It was presented by Google in the autumn of 2021 but in Italy it only arrived in the course of 2022 with a single color. The 6.4-inch screen would suggest small dimensions but it measures 158.6 x 74.8 x 8.9 mm and weighs a good 207 grams. The rear camera has a unique design in the smartphone landscape. Ergonomics are not bad, net of a demanding weight. After a period of adaptation, the 4,614 mAh battery gives its best, allowing you to cover up to 8 hours of screen, following the user’s habits. Present wireless charging at 23 watts, along with wired charging at 30 watts. The camera fleet has been renewed, with a 50 megapixel (f / 1.8) main sensor flanked by a 12 megapixel (f / 2.2) ultra wide angle (FoV 114 degrees). The photos obtainable are of the highest quality, in any condition.
Samsung Galaxy S21
It was presented earlier than in previous years and is on sale from January 2021 in two memory variants and different colors. Despite a 6.2-inch screen, the dimensions are acceptable: 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9 mm and 169 grams in weight, thanks also to the use of plastic for the back cover. Ergonomics are very good, thanks to a lack of slipperiness. With 4,000 mAh good results can be expected and the Galaxy S21 does not disappoint. About 7 hours of screen on, which means that with intense use you always arrive in the evening, even leaving the screen at 120 Hz at the same time. The photographic sector is good, but it remains substantially unchanged compared to that of the s20 series. 12 megapixel (f / 1.8) main sensor, 12 megapixel (f / 2.2) ultra wide angle (120 degree FoV) sensor, 64 megapixel (f / 2.0) 3x hybrid telephoto lens. There are still some problems when the light goes down, even if the night mode solves almost all the problems.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G
It was announced at CES 2022 and can also be purchased in Italy since January of the same year. Four colors available and two memory cuts. Samsung has done the homework well and has inserted a 6.4-inch screen in 155.7 x 74.5 x 7.9 mm and weighing only 177 grams. Good ergonomics, a pity only for the vibration motor too noisy. The 4,500 mAh battery promises well but the S21 FE stops at around 5/6 hours of screen on. There is fast charging at 25 W, flanked by the wireless one at 15 watts and the reverse at 4.5 watts. The photos are of excellent quality, with a compartment that can count on a 123 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.8), a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle (f / 2.2) and an 8 megapixel 3x optical zoom (30x digital).
It arrived in Italy in the spring of 2022, three months after its launch in China, and it is possible to buy it in three different colors and two memory cuts. Thanks to a 6.28-inch screen, the dimensions are decidedly contained, especially by current standards: 152.7 x 69.9 x 8.16 mm with a weight of 176 grams. The ergonomics and use with one hand are therefore excellent. Normally the battery, with 4,500 mAh, can guarantee a day of intense use. In any case, the presence of wired fast charging at 67 watts and wireless at 50 watts, with very short charging times, should be noted. Good photographic sector, with main sensor from 50 megapixel (f / 1.9), ultra wide angle (FoV 123 degrees) from 13 megapixel (f / 2.4) and optical zoom from 5 megapixel (f / 2.4). Great photos,

Google Pixel 6 Pro
Like its “small” brother, Pixel 6 Pro also arrived in Italy at the beginning of 2022, after being purchasable only by importing from abroad. It is a large but not huge smartphone, with its 163.9 x 75.8 x 8.9 millimeters, justified by the presence of a 6.7-inch screen. The quality is perceived at the first touch and there are some goodies such as the dry but pleasant vibration. The 5,000 mAh battery needs a few weeks to calibrate itself, adapting to the type of use by the user, and allows you to reach the 6-7 hours of screen without particular problems. Good fast charging, at 30W wired and 23W wireless. The photographic sector has been renewed, with a main sensor from 50 megapixel (f / 1.9), ultra wide angle (FoV 114 degrees) from 12 megapixel (f / 2). 2) and periscopic 48-megapixel (f / 3.5) 4x optical zoom. Impeccable photos even if the algorithm needs some improvements to achieve excellence.
Apple iPhone 13
You can buy it in Italy from the end of September 2021, in three memory cuts and five different colors. Once again the dimensions are a strong point, 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.65 mm and 173 grams of weight, despite a 6.1-inch screen. Excellent therefore for those who want a pocket product or to put in the clutch. The autonomy is also excellent, thanks to a less energy-intensive processor, with the battery lasting up to two hours longer than the previous model. As in the mini variant, an optical zoom is missing, but the two 12 megapixel sensors (f / 1.6 the main and f / 2.4 the wide angle) allow you to take very high quality photos in all circumstances.
Realme GT 2 Pro
Activated in Europe at the end of February 2022, Realme GT 2 Pro is certainly one of the most interesting devices of the first part of the year. Only one memory variant available to Italian users. The dimensions are very important, 163 x 74.4 x 8.16 mm but the weight is not bad, stopping at 189 grams. However, the ergonomics are not bad, thanks also to the particular back cover that simulates the feeling of the card. The 5,000 mAh battery allows you to reach the evening even on the most demanding days, with over six hours of screen on. And if necessary, there is fast charging at 65 watts, which drastically reduces charging times. The camera results are very good, but given the equipment it is not a surprise: 50 megapixel main sensor (f / 1. 8) flanked by an ultra wide angle (FoV 150 degrees) very pushed with a 50 megapixel sensor (f / 2.2) and a 2 megapixel microscopic lens. Very good shots in low light, even if the ultra wide angle tends to suffer.
Apple iPhone 13 Pro
It can be purchased from the end of September 2021 in four different memory sizes (up to 1 TB) and four colors, including the new Sierra blue. The dimensions are the same as the iPhone 12m, that is 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.65 mm and 203 grams of weight. Compact enough to fit into any pocket and smallest handbag. Once again the optimization allows to improve autonomy, thanks to a processor that consumes less, without particularly changing the size of the battery. Three rear camera sensors, all 12 megapixels: main with f / 1.5 aperture, ultra wide angle (FoV 120 degrees) from f / 1.8 and 3x optical zoom from f / 2.8. The images are of the highest quality, a constant for this family of products.
ASUS ZenFone 9
It has been on sale in Italy since the end of July 2022 in two different memory sizes (up to 16 GB of RAM) and two colors (only one for the 16 GB version). Once again ASUS stands out for having created a compact smartphone: 146.6 x 68.2 x 9.5 mm (and 1690 grams of weight) are now a rarity in a market that aims at large screens without caring too much about the overall dimensions. With 4,300 mAh of battery, the smartphone exceeds 5 hours of screen on, allowing you to cover a busy working day without any particular problems. There is no wireless charging, while the wired one reaches 30 watts of power. ASUS has chosen to use only two sensors for the main camera: one 50 megapixel (f / 1.9) with EIS and OIS and one ultra wide angle (FoV 113 degrees) 12 megapixel (f / 2).
OnePlus 10 Pro
Arrived in Italy over two months after its launch in China, it is on sale in our country in two colors and two different memory cuts. With a 6.7-inch screen, the dimensions are more than adequate, 163 x 73.9 x 8.5 millimeters and 200 grams of weight, while the double curvature of the edges guarantees better ergonomics. OnePlus has inserted a good battery, 5,000 mAh, equipping it with ultra-fast charging technology: 80 watts in wired mode, which takes 47 minutes to fully charge, and 50 watts for wireless charging. Also present is reverse wireless charging. The photographic sector is developed in collaboration with Hasselblad and includes a 48 megapixel (f / 1.8) Sony IMX789 main sensor, a 50 megapixel Samsung wide angle (f / 2.4) and an 8 megapixel 3.3x optical zoom. High quality photos,
OPPO Find X5 Pro
Presented on February 24, 2022 together with two other smartphones, OPPO Find X5 Pro is the flagship model of the brand, available in two colors and only one memory cut. Demanding dimensions but not exaggerated, given the 6.7-inch screen: 163.7 x 73.9 x 8.5 mm (and 215 grams of weight) will still be felt in the hand, making it difficult to use with one hand . The autonomy is of absolute level, thanks to a 5,000 mAh battery, arriving in the evening is not a problem. And for the most demanding days there is fast charging at 80 watts with the wireless one reaching 50 watts, really not bad. Three rear camera sensors: main 50-megapixel (f / 1.7) with 5-axis OIS, 50-megapixel (f / 2.2) ultra wide-angle (110-degree FOV) and 3x 13-megapixel zoom (f / 2.4) zoom. The collaboration with Hasselblad,
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G
It is the flagship model of the S22 series presented in February 2022 and can be purchased in four colors and four memory cuts. Includes the S Pen, which has its own housing. If the dimensions are all in all acceptable (163.3 x 77.9 x 8.9 mm) what in the long run tires is the weight of 227 grams, which combined with the above average width makes it more complicated to grip with one hand. After a few days of settlement, the battery easily reaches six hours of screen on: difficult to do worse with a 5,000 mAh unit, which can also count on fast charging at 45 watts (no charger in the package) and on wireless at 15 watts . Four sensors to keep Samsung at the top even in the photographic field: main 108 megapixel (f / 1.8) with OIS, 10 megapixel telephoto lens (f / 2. 4) with 3x optical zoom, 10 megapixel (f / 4.9) periscopic telephoto lens with 10x optical zoom and 12 megapixel (f / 2.2) ultra wide angle (FoV 120 degrees). The zoom reaches 100x with impressive sharpness, the shots are always convincing, even at night, when some imperfection is still visible.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G
It is available in our country from 27 August 2021 in two memory variants (8-128 GB and 8-256 GB) and numerous colors, some of which are exclusive to the official Samsung store. The thickness of 15.9 mm is felt only in the pocket, but the weight contained in only 183 grams makes the smartphone very manageable The measurements are 86.4 72.2 x 15.9 mm when closed and 166 x 72 , 2 x 6.9mm when opened. The battery remains unchanged compared to the predecessor, 3,300 mAh, and this makes it difficult to arrive in the evening in a quiet way. It is difficult to exceed the four hours of autonomy and charging at 15 watts does not help to reduce the charging times. The photos that can be obtained with the dual rear camera are comparable to those of Galaxy S21, net of the absence of the optical zoom. The main 12 megapixel sensor (f / 1.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G
In Italy it can be purchased from 27 August 2021, in the 12-256 GB and 12-512 GB versions, and in three different color variants. It is definitely an important device to handle and keep in your pocket, especially due to the weight of 271 grams.
