Talking about the Xiaomi Mi A2 first, the device is one of the most-awaited smartphones of the current time. The mid-range smartphone is going to be the global variant of the previously launched Xiaomi Mi 6X which was launched in the month of April.

The Mi A2 Lite is a newbie as far as the leaks are concerned. The device will feature a notched display and will be much cheaper when compared with the original Mi A2.

Sharp Aquos C10

Sharp Aquos C10

The Sharp Aquos C10 is going to be announce pretty soon. The device features a bunch of top-notch specifications.

Starting off with the display, the device sports a 5.5-inch display giving out a resolution of 2040 x 1080 pixels and a 19:9 aspect ratio. There is a notch at the top of the display which houses the front camera. The notch is only meant to make room for the camera and it takes as little space as possible.

There is a little amount of bezel at the top and a pretty significant one at the chin. The fingerprint scanner sits at the chin of the device. The size of the scanner, however, appears to be a bit awkward. At the top of the scanner, we can see the Sharp branding.

Sharp Aquos B10
12 of 15

Sharp Aquos B10

Accompanying the Sharp Aquos C10, there will be a more affordable smartphone dubbed the Sharp Aquos B10 which will be launched alongside.

Starting off with the display, the device sports a 5.7-inch HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Unlike the Sharp Aquos C10, there is no notch at the top of the device. There is a considerable amount of chin and forehead at the front.

Comparing the Aquos B10 with the Aquos C10, the Sharp branding has been shifted to the back and so is the fingerprint scanner. We feel that the fingerprint scanner positioning is way better with the Aquos B10.

Nokia 6.1 Plus (Nokia X6)

HMD Global launched the Nokia X6 in the month of May. The device got a lot of attention from the Android lovers owing to the amazing specifications and features it offers at a very affordable price. The only problem with the device is the fact that it is yet to see a global release.

Initially, the company did not have any plans to launch the device globally and it was only after a poll taken by the company on Twitter that it decided to make it global.

Ever since that announcement, we have been waiting to receive further intel on the same. Turns out that the upcoming Nokia 6.1 Plusis none other than the global variant of the Nokia X6.

Xiaomi has finally launched the second generation of the Black Shark gaming smartphones. The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 is a substantial upgrade over the Xiaomi Black Shark.

The price of the device is kept at around $511 which is not too big of a jump when compared with the original Black Shark that cost around $577 for the top-of-the-line variant when it was launched.
