Samsung also added a new smartphone to its hit M series, Galaxy M40. The new Galaxy M40 is the only smartphone to come with a punch-hole design under 20,000 rupees. It will soon face a direct challenge from Vivo’s upcoming Z series device, the Z1 Pro.
Let’s check out the top trending smartphones from this week.
Redmi K20 Pro
Xiaomi is all set to unveil its first flagship series under Redmi in the country in mid-July alongside the regular Redmi K20. Xiaomi’s first Redmi K20 Pro India launch teaser says “Somebody jus+ announced the world’s fastest phone… Oh really? Hold my AnTuTu..” Interestingly Xiaomi has claimed it to be the world’s fastest smartphone beating all the top flagships available in the market. Redmi K20 Pro will come with the latest Qualcomm flagship processor Snapdragon 855, three rear cameras, notch-less display, in-display fingerprint sensor and a pop-up selfie camera.
Redmi K20 Pro will also run on the latest Android Q beta version out of the box, a huge 4,000mAh battery supporting 27W fast charging and special gaming features to offer the best of smartphone gaming experience.
A rumoured video of the Realme 4 retail box has been leaked online via a YouTube video leaking some key details. Sadly, it isn’t authentic, but the smartphone started to trend since then. The box resembles the previous Realme 3 retail box. The same grey box with the number ‘4’ instead of 3 and the Realme in yellow color. The video is fake, and nothing has been confirmed by the company whether they are making it or not. The specs will see a slight improvement, but mostly it will be the same design with other features.
The list of expected Realme 4 specs will include an additional camera sensor, an upgraded processor and a few other additions. Realme 4 will come with the same water drop notch design, maybe with lesser bezels this time and a rear three camera setup.
Samsung Galaxy M40
Samsung Galaxy M40 launched in the country last week, on June 11. It’s the only smartphone to come with a punch-hole styled display at under 20,000 rupees. Most of the specs are out. Galaxy M40 will run on an octa-core 11nm Snapdragon 675 chip paired with 6GB of RAM and Android 9 Pie based OneUI OS. The Samsung Galaxy M40 will feature a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ display with a 3,500mAh battery supporting 15W fast charging and triple rear cameras including an ultrawide lens and 128GB of internal storage.

The Zenfone 6 from Europe will launch in India as Asus 6Z in India. After the recent court debacle, the Taiwanese company chose to drop the Zenfone name in India. The same Asus Zenfone 6 will launch in the country as Asus 6Z with all the similar specs and features. The dual camera system uses the unique flipping technology to offer a full-screen display in the form of a flippable dual camera module which doubles as a front and rear camera.
Asus 6Z runs on the latest Snapdragon 855 with almost stock ZenUI 6 skin based on Android 9 Pie with a 48MP Sony IMX 586 rear sensor and a massive 5,000mAh battery, expected to launch in India in a few weeks, probably by early July.
