If the iPhone 14''s $799 / 849 / AU$1,339 start price fails, you may want to pay attention to the Xiaomi 12T, a mid-range phone that is expected to debut very soon.
The Xiaomi 12, as well as a successor to the Xiaomi 11T, would be a lower-cost spin-off, and some leakers believe it might debut shortly, along with a Pro version (as Xiaomi''s T phones generally do), as well as a budget tablet and several headphones.

Although leaks have found that the phone might feature a high-res 200MP rear camera, similar to the recently launched Motorola Edge 30 Ultra. Besides that, we''re also expecting a similar smartphone to those of the previous models, although some upgrades and tweaks are required. That''s fine, given that Xiaomi T phones are generally reliable and hardy, with really intuitive side-mounted fingerprint scanners, excellent-looking screens and useful camera features.
The best part will likely be the price, as these phones fall straight into the middle of the mid-range market. Despite having improved specs in many departments, the Xiaomi 11T Pro is exactly the same as the Google Pixel 6, and the non-Pro version is even less.

Given how expensive the new iPhones are especially in the United Kingdom, where a price rise means that you''re paying dramatically more for the mobiles there than you are in the United States. For those who want a decent handset without paying flagship costs, this approach would be ideal.
We''re hoping that the Xiaomi 12T as well as a Pro sibling will be released in the next week or so, as they''ll give them more time to compete with Apple''s four new iPhones. Xiaomi''s next possible releases are unlikely to be destined for our list of the best cheap phones or smartphones overall, but they might still be beneficial alternatives for some individuals.
