Checkout the top trending smartphones from this week.
OnePlus RT / OnePlus 9RT
Leakster Max Jambor recently confirmed OnePlus RT launch date in India, said to happen on December 16. OnePlus RT will basically be a remodelled OnePlus 9RT for India. Previously tipster Mukul Sharma confirmed that OnePlus 9RT has been listed on the Google Supported Devices List and Google Play Listing with a different name where the 9 is missing and hence OnePlus may launch the device as OnePlus RT in India.
The same device with model number OP5154L1 was previously spotted on the BIS certification website.
Redmi K50, Redmi K50 Pro
Redmi K50 series specifications have been leaked. Popular tipster Digital Chat Station confirmed that Redmi K50 smartphones will come with Dimensity chips and Snapdragon SoCs. As per the leak, Redmi K50 series will have four devices, and wherein two of them will be powered by the Dimensity 7000 and 9000 chipsets and two will run on Snapdragon 870 and Snapdragon 8 Gen1. He also said the upcoming Redmi K50 models will come with MIUI 13 out of the box.
Xiaomi 12 and 12X are also tipped to launch in December with MIUI 13. MIUI 13 will see a major visual upgrade with iOS-like widgets, a new smart toolbox, front camera assistant, MIUI Pure Mode, expandable RAM and multiple customisations.
Poco M4 Pro 5G
Poco M4 Pro 5G recently launched as a rebranded Redmi Note 11, which is said to launch in India as Redmi Note 11T 5G. But some reports suggest Xiaomi may bring the Poco M4 Pro 5G and not rebrand it again as the Redmi Note 11T 5G in India. The Poco M series have worked very well for the brand, and we will see a Poco M3 Pro 5G successor in the country soon. Redmi Note 11T 5G India launch has been confirmed, and Poco M4 Pro 5G eventually is the same model, so chances are it may not come to India.
But remember Xiaomi did the same with Poco M2 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro, which were the same models as well except for the brand and charging capacities. So Poco M4 Pro India launch can definitely happen later, yet to be confined by the company.
Google Pixel 6a
A recent source reported Pixel 6a concept images, courtesy OnLeaks, which revealed the complete design. The upcoming Pixel phone will come a punch-hole display, dual rear cameras and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The leak showed off how the Pixel 6a would look along with the key features. Google Pixel 6a will have a similar design language as Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Coming to Pixel 6a specifications, it will feature a 6.2-inch flat OLED display with a single centered punch-hole camera.
An upgrade over the predecessor, Pixel 6a will have an in-display fingerprint scanner. It will come with dual rear cameras in a visor-like module, same as Pixel 6. Pixel 6a will have a glass back and the same Pixel 6 series-like dual-tone finish. Google Pixel 6a is said to feature a mid-range Tensor processor, probably a Tensor Lite SoC or Snapdragon 778G.
OnePlus 10, OnePlus 10 Pro
Tipster Max Jambor leaked the OnePlus 10 launch window. As per the report, OnePlus 10 launch will happen along with the Pro model in the January-February time period in 2022 in China, while the OnePlus 10 and OnePlus 10 Pro global variant will come in the March-April time frame. During the same period Samsung will also launch its flagship Galaxy S22 series in February 2022. The main reason why OnePlus will release the OnePlus 10 flagships because it probably wants to compete with Samsung in China.
New OnePlus 10 Pro design is out which revealed a new camera design with an under-display front camera. OnePlus 10 series will launch in early 2022 consisting of three phones as this year: OnePlus 10, OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus 10R.
