‘Year in search in Pakistan’ 2020 unveiled Pakistan’s top 10 favorite mobiles.

Recently, Google unveiled its annual ‘Year in Search Pakistan’, which listed what everyone in Pakistan is searching for on Google. The results were across different categories, including movies, people, Coronavirus, trending events and occasions, and smartphones.

ProPakistani.pk compiled the list of top 10 Smartphones searched for in Pakistan in 2020. It should be noted that Chinese smartphones almost completely dominated the list, and Huawei’s Y9A topped the chart. Furthermore, the most searched smartphones belonged either to the upper entry-level tier (from PKR 15,000 to 26,000) or the mid-range tier (from PKR 40,000 to 60,000), with no high-end flagship brands in sight (other than iPhone).
