Xiaomi Redmi Note 6
Xiaomi is going to launch the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6lineup off smartphones pretty soon.
The devices have recently appeared on the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) certification website which certainly means that a launch date is approaching.
Google Pixel 3 XXL
Google is going to launch the Google Pixel 3 lineup of smartphones on October 16. Right ahead of the launch, we have got a working clue as to what the Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL have in store for us and as if the previous leaks were not enough, a new rumor has popped up on the internet which suggests that there will be a third device in the lineup with absolutely thin bezels (and no notch).
Samsung Galaxy S10
Samsung is reportedly going to launch the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup of smartphones in 2019 and we all are eagerly waiting for it. There are plenty of reasons as to why the device is so special. For starters, it is not going to be a mere incremental upgrade over its predecessors (something which has been a debatable issue with the Galaxy S9 and the recently launched Galaxy Note 9).
Nokia 9 and Nokia X7
HMD Global is working on launching the Nokia X7and the Nokia 9 pretty soon. Other than the rather conspicuous leak suggesting a penta camera setup in the Nokia 9, there is little known about both the devices so far.
Finally, we have started receiving intel on both the smartphones as live shots of the display assembly of both of them have recently popped up on the internet.
OnePlus is reportedly going to launch the OnePlus 6T on October 17. So far, we have not got much information on the device other than the fact that it will sport an under-display fingerprint scanner and a waterdrop display.
Recently, we received a bunch of live shots of the retail packaging of the device which told us a lot about the display.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10
Samsung recently launched the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 flagship and one thing is for sure, the world of Android never stops. The last few months saw all the tech bloggers covering each and every aspect of the device and the moment the device was launched, everyone moved on to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy X and the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup. Therefore, if someone begins talking about the too far to even talk about Samsung Galaxy Note 10, people won’t probably take it seriously as of now.
The fact of the matter is, rumors and reports concerning the Galaxy Note 10 have already started popping out on the internet.
Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition
Xiaomi is all geared up to launch the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition on September 19. So far, we have got plenty of intel on the device including some live shots and the specifications and features it is going to come packed with.
Now, the company has started making things official as it has posted a new official poster on Weibo.
LG V40 ThinQ
LG is going to launch the LG V40 ThinQ on October 3. The news has come up courtesy of a new teaser video uploaded by the company on its official website.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro
Huawei is going to launch the Huawei Mate 20 Pro on October 16. So far, we have gathered plenty of information on the device. Almost all the specifications and features are now leaked and revealed and we are kind of the waiting stage for the device to be officially unveiled.
Samsung Galaxy J6 Prime
Samsung is reportedly working on launching a new mid-range smartphone dubbed the Samsung Galaxy J6 Prime. A bunch of CAD renders of the device has surfaced the internet which reveals its design language.
Samsung’s mystery 4X Fun smartphone
Samsung has been into the news a lot lately. The company recently launched the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and now it is all set to unveil its first-ever foldable smartphone dubbed the Samsung Galaxy X this fall.
But before all that, the company is all geared up to launch a new device on October 11 which, as per the promotional poster, will feature “4X Fun”.
Razer Phone 2
Razer Phone 2, the successor to the widely popular Razer Phone is going to be launched on October 10. The company has sent out invites for a launch event which is going to take place in Hollywood, CA on October 10 at 1830 hours.
Oppo is reportedly working on launching a new mid-range smartphone dubbed the Oppo K1. The Oppo K1 has recently appeared on the TENAA listing which reveals a lot of its specifications and features. Moreover, the live shots of the device have also been revealed.
By the looks of it, the Oppo K1 has more or less the same design language as that of the recently launched smartphones by Oppo. We get a dual-colored rear which looks amazing.
