Since the beginning of 2020, 5G smartphones from major manufacturers have swept through. However, larger screens, more powerful performance plus the extra power consumption of 5G make manufacturers install large-capacity batteries in them. But large batteries often have a negative impact on the ‘body’ of phones. That’s why the weight of 5G handsets catches our eyes immediately. A few days ago, one of the users showed a list of 22 new flagship phones in 2020. Except for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, the rest are 5G devices. As you guess, in this table, the focus is on weight.

As shown in the table, the title of ‘the lightest 5G flagship phone’ has been steadily won by the Samsung Galaxy S20. The folding screen phone Z Flip also has an amazingly light body. The Huawei P40 and the OnePlus 8 that are not available yet, are close behind, with the weight controlled at 180g and below. The Samsung Galaxy S20+ weighs only 186g, while the OPPO Find X2 leather version weighs 189g. Its ceramic version is heavier, reaching 209g, while the OnePlus 8 Pro weighs 199g, which is well controlled within 200g.
As for other flagship machines, the weight exceeds 200g. The ‘heaviest’ model is the Huawei Mate Xs. It is the only 5G smartphone, reaching 300g. However, this folding screen phone is actually equivalent to 1.5 phones, and this weight is also reasonable.
It is worth mentioning that the Honor 30 will be released on April 15. And it will have an 8.1mm thickness and a 185g weight. Thus, it will become one of the thinnest and most lightweight 5G smartphones.
