The best value smartphones you can't get in the United States

From an outsider’s perspective, the stateside smartphone market looks more carrier-driven with unwavering platform loyalty and consumer preference largely constricted to two top brands. Meanwhile, those in other regions are more accepting of phones from emerging makers that conveniently undercut their mainstream counterparts, often without making many compromises. OnePlus once led the burgeoning budget flagship segment, but many of its peers from China have since joined in to take a slice of the pie.

Xiaomi to unveil the Redmi Note 9 series with four cameras next week

Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi became popular in some Asian markets with its budget-friendly range, but started venturing into the premium segment last year, after it was turned into a standalone brand, much like Poco. Despite now having a broader device portfolio, Redmi has maintained its focus on the lower end of the spectrum, where it continues to get the maximum traction.
