Mar 30 2023 • 29 mins

There have been several interesting phones and tech that were announced in the first quarter of 2023. From some of the most powerful smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, iQoo 11 5G, to AI-based chat services such as ChatGPT. We also saw plenty of new mid-range smartphones being launched, and a change in price segments across phones.

Gadgets 360 reviewer Pranav Hegde and executive editor Jamshed Avari join Orbital guest host Roydon Cerejo to discuss the most interesting tech and phones so far in 2023.

As the years go by, we're also seeing a change in trends related to customer behaviour when purchasing smartphones. Manufacturers are offering launch day discounts and deals with no-cost EMI, exchange bonuses, etc to make it easier for customers to buy smartphones.

What were the most interesting smartphones and tech events in the first quarter of 2023, how is customer behaviour and price segments changing in regards to new smartphone purchases, and what does the future hold? We discuss this and more on the latest episode of Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast.
