6 Noteworthy Mid-Range Phones in the Thai Market in 2023

After a somewhat subdued year in 2022, the mid-range smartphone arena has regained its vibrancy in 2023. Previously absent brands like realme and POCO have introduced new products with a slew of highlights, ranging from specifications to camera capabilities. Among them, the 6 most notable phones of the past year are the Xiaomi 13T, OPPO Reno10 5G, Samsung Galaxy A54 5G, vivo V29 5G, POCO F5 Pro, and realme 11 Pro.

Xiaomi 13T

  • Retail Price in Thailand: 17,000 Thai Baht

Maintaining the strengths of its predecessor, the Xiaomi 13T boasts powerful performance with the MediaTek Dimensity 8200 – Ultra, 8GB RAM, and 256GB internal storage by default. However, this is not the aspect that Xiaomi emphasizes in this year’s product lineup.

The Xiaomi 13T currently has the brightest display on a smartphone sold in Vietnam, with 2,600 nits. The product is well-crafted with a glass back, plastic frame, and IP68 water and dust resistance standard. Additionally, the collaboration with LEICA enhances the photo quality, providing a distinct look that sets the Xiaomi 13T apart from all other competitors in the same segment. In summary, this is one of the most balanced and comprehensive smartphones in the 11 million VND price range that users can purchase.

OPPO Reno10 5G

  • Retail Price in Thailand: 14,000 Thai Baht

Performance has often been a weak point for OPPO Reno devices. Despite having eye-catching designs, excellent cameras, and fast charging, products like OPPO Reno5, Reno7 4G, or Reno8 4G often lacked a powerful chip, significantly affecting the user experience.

However, this has changed with the OPPO Reno10 5G. The device features a fairly stable configuration with Dimensity 7050, 8GB RAM, and default 128GB ROM. In the 10 million VND price range, this product also possesses many outstanding features such as a 32MP telephoto camera, curved display, eye-catching design, and impressive battery life. This is a considerable choice for those looking for a smartphone with an impressive appearance, good cameras, and a curved edge display.

Samsung Galaxy A54 5G

  • Retail Price in Thailand: 15,000 Thai Baht

Continuing the success of its predecessor, the Galaxy A54 5G stands out with a high-quality camera system, sharp AMOLED display, and excellent battery life.

A significant upgrade in the Galaxy A54’s design is the glass back. In fact, the predecessor Galaxy A53 and many other products in the segment had a back made of plastic. Clearly, glass brings a more premium, elegant appearance, and it is sturdier, more durable, and resistant compared to plastic.

Although the Exynos 1380 chip is not well-optimized for touch gestures, it is still capable of playing graphic-intensive games from light to medium. Especially, equipping a 5,000mAh battery in a compact size allows the Galaxy A54 to achieve 8 hours of continuous use. This is something that even many expensive flagship devices cannot accomplish.

vivo V29 5G

  • Retail Price in Thailand: 18,500 Thai Baht

The highlight of the vivo V29 5G comes from its incredibly eye-catching and personality-packed exterior. Drawing inspiration from the starry sky, the product introduces a fresh back with fine crystal-like patterns that can glow when viewed from different angles, creating a visual effect every time you use it. Additionally, the vivo V29 5G also features the Aura 2.0 Light Ring, providing a vaulted light similar to professional studios. The device also has IP68 water and dust resistance standards, similar to the Xiaomi 13T.

On the front, the vivo V29 5G features a curved AMOLED display with a resolution of up to 1260 x 2800 pixels and a 120Hz refresh rate. The Snapdragon 778G chip still responds well to daily usage demands from light to medium. The 50MP camera cluster on the vivo V29 can handle various conditions from well-lit to low-light or night scenarios.


  • Retail Price in Thailand: 18,500 Thai Baht

The “king of configurations” POCO has returned to the upper mid-range segment with the POCO F5 Pro. In the 12 million VND range, the device possesses a highly powerful configuration with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, 8GB RAM, and 256GB internal storage. With over 1 million points on the AnTuTu Benchmark, the POCO F5 Pro is ready to outperform any competitor in terms of performance.

Other factors on the POCO F5 Pro are also noteworthy in this segment. The device features a 68 billion color AMOLED display, 2K+ resolution, and a 120Hz refresh rate. The device is well-finished with a glass back and IP53 water and dust resistance standards. Moreover, the MIUI 14 for POCO user interface has seen significant improvements in smoothness during usage.

realme 11 Pro

  • Retail Price in Thailand: 17,000 Thai Baht

The last phone on this list is the realme 11 Pro. This is the most beautiful and standout product in terms of appearance in this price range. The back of the device is made of faux leather, feels very smooth and luxurious to the touch. realme has also taken great care of this product, as the seams, lines, and circles around the camera are all well-executed.

In terms of the display, the realme 11 Pro follows the trend by featuring a curved display, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and a 120Hz refresh rate. Although the Dimensity 7050 chip is not the most powerful in the segment, it still responds well to daily usage needs. Especially, the device has a very good battery life with usage time consistently over 9 hours. In addition, the company also includes a 67W SuperVOOC fast charger in the box, capable of fully charging the battery in just 30 minutes.


In general, Thai consumers have had many high-end mid-range smartphone options in 2023. Products in this segment all have their own impressive features in terms of design, performance, display, and camera. This is a significant driving force for brands to continue making new strides and introducing even more high-quality models in
