iPhone 12 is coming pretty soon. We might need to wait for at least a month, based on the previous rumors. Despite the wait, many leaked specs were already out on the internet, so we slowly get the picture of how the next iPhone model will look, how it will perform, and more. But since not all people can afford iPhone or not an Apple fan, some of the suggested smartphones are comparable to the popular brand--that you could also buy.

Apple's iPhone 12 may be a good catch for most of us, yet other brands could still compare with the model. Here are the top 5 smartphones we found:
Sony Xperia 5 II
Sony released the Xperia 1 II months ago. But starting on Thursday, Sept. 17, a new Sony Xperia 5 II will be released. Based on the previous rumored specs about the device, it will have the same specs with the Xperia 1 II.
The phone will have a 6.1-inch screen that comes with a 120Hz refresh rate and Sony's trademark 21:9 aspect ratio. It is expected to support Snapdragon 865 with 8GB and 128GB of storage.
Expected price: $799.
If a bigger screen smartphone is what you like, here's another iPhone 12 replacement for you.
OnePlus 8T is said to feature a 6.55-inch screen display with full-HD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. It will also be powered with Snapdragon 865+ SoC and may come in two variants - 8GB + 128GB and 12GB + 256GB. Surprisingly, the phone may be packed with a 4,500mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging.
This phone will be reportedly released in September or October.
