So here are the top 5 most exciting smartphones coming to India this year!
Number 5:- Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro
Xiaomi has basically revolutionized the Indian smartphone market by proving a very good level of configuration in their smartphones at a price tag that is extremely reasonable. A few of their smartphones have become the most widely used phones in the country. The “Note” series deserves a lot of credit for establishing them as a major smartphone brand in India by being extremely popular with both young employees and college students who are the main market for phones of this series.
Elegant design, cool and accessible UI, very good configurations and a budget price tag have always been staples of the phones that belong to this series and the phone everyone is looking forward to “Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro” is giving every indication that is going to follow this trend.
With 6 GB Ram, 64 GB internal storage, a 4000mah Battery with a 2.0 GHz, Octacore Qualcomm SDM675 Snapdragon 675 (11 nm) processes, Redmi Note 7 Pro looks extremely promising and for a price that is excepted be around Rs. 15000, it sounds like an excellent deal.
The only reason that this phone is at the bottom of this list is because it’s predecessor, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, while being a perfectly good phone, failed to live up to the expectation of the fans of this series who were looking forward to a major upgrade from the Redmi Note 5 pro but were left underwhelmed. Hopefully, the Redmi Note 7 Pro won’t face a similar fate and will be received with the same level of warmth that most phones from this series have received.
Number 4:- Samsung Galaxy M30
Samsung has been killing it with their flagship phones years after year and their flagship of this year, Samsung Galaxy S10 will be in direct competition with two phones on this list and while it may not emerge victorious, Samsung Galaxy M30 is all set to destroy any other phone that falls into its price bracket.
Samsung’s budget and Middle range smartphone have often been criticized for not being up to the mark and offer nothing that even comes close to its competition. Samsung seems to have finally heard these complains and is set to retake the mid-range market with its brand new Samsung Galaxy M30.
Featuring an Octa-Core processor with 6 GB ram, 64 GB internal storage and a TRIPLE back camera along with the amolded display, Samsung M30 might just be the most exciting phone to hit the shelves—at a projected price of under Rs 15,000—this year and the only real competitor to the Redmi Note 6 and 7 Pro.
Number 3:- Nokia 9
Nokia used to be king when it came to mobile phones in India, unfortunately, they have since lost that throne and it seems extremely unlikely they will ever re-capture it. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t going to try.
All the smartphones Nokia has launched in the last 1.5 years have received near-universal acclaim and this year they are gearing up to launch their first true flagship phone in years. The Nokia 9 might not be phone people are looking forward to the most this year but it is by far the most ambitious.
With not 2, not 3 but FIVE rear cameras, this phone has the potential to enter a completely new realm of mobile photography and the pictures clicked through it which are already on display on Nokia’s official Instagram page have gotten people very excited.
But the camera isn’t the only thing that makes the phone worthy of attention. It will have 128 GB of internal storage with 4 GB of RAM, an in-display fingerprint scanner and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
This phone just might turn the tide in Nokia’s favours and restore them to some of their former glory.
Number 2:- Oneplus 7
No list about exiting smartphones can be complete without the mention of this brand and this list is not going to be an exception. Oneplus is winning the flagship war for years in India and that isn’t going to change with OnePlus 7, which is just a few months away, all set to completely demolish any other company that dares to challenge it with their own flagship.
Offering the configurations that seem suitable for a Rs 70,000+ phone at half the price, it is easy to find the appeal of Oneplus smartphones and while Oneplus 7 might be their most expensive phone yet, it is still extremely more affordable than any other flagship.
Oneplus 7 will the first phone from that company to be notchless and with a TRIPLE rear camera which is enough reason for people to upgrade.
Number 1:- iPhone 2019
Very little is actually confirmed about the iPhone that is going to come out this year but the little information that has been leaked is enough to put it on the top spot of this list. This iPhone is expected to be a much bigger upgrade that iPhone XS was last year and that is enough to virtually guarantee that Apple fans are already preparing to buy it.
While there is a very good argument to made that there are better phones going to come out this year than the new iPhone but the type of loyalty and passion Apple fans have towards their favourite company make every argument invalid to them.
But with a triple camera, and a 5W charger and a smaller notch the new iPhone is definitely the most exciting phone coming in 2019.
