Unlike every year, December 2019 is going to see a notable smartphone launches from several companies. Usually, smartphone brands do not launch any mobile phones in the month of December as they will be busy in preparing the roadmap for the next year. However, it’s going to be a bit different as brands are looking to introduce new phones in the last month of 2019 as well. Some of the confirmed phones are Realme XT 730G, Xiaomi Mi Note 10, Vivo V17 and we may see some phones from the house of Samsung as well. Even, there’s a possibility that HMD Global may launch a new Android One smartphone as a successor to Nokia 8.1 in this month itself. Read onto know more about the phones which are slated to debut in India in December 2019.
Xiaomi Mi Note 10
Launched last month, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 is the global version of Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro smartphone. The Mi Note 10 is the world’s first phone to pack a 108MP Penta-camera setup on the rear side and it will also be India’s first phone to feature a 108MP camera sensor on the back. The Mi Note 10 is also a great mid-range smartphone that will tackle the Realme XT 730G smartphone. The specs of the Mi Note 10 include 6.47-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 730G chipset, up to 8GB of RAM, 108MP Penta-camera setup and 5260mAh battery. The launch date of the smartphone is not yet revealed by Xiaomi India though.
Realme XT 730G
Back in September 2019, Realme said that it would launch the Realme XT 730G smartphone in December this year. Sticking to its promise, Realme will bring the Realme XT with Snapdragon 730G processor on board. The XT 730G will feature similar design and hardware specs as the Realme XT, but it will come with powerful Snapdragon 730G SoC and 30W Super VOOC fast charging support. Realme is yet to confirm the launch date of the XT 730G in India. The company may bring a successor to Realme C2 as well.
Vivo already confirmed that it’s going to launch the Vivo V17 smartphone in India on December 9. The Vivo V17 will be a watered-down version of the Vivo V17 Pro and it comes with features like punch-hole display, quad-camera setup, Snapdragon 665 SoC and FunTouch OS 9.2 out of the box. The expected price of the Vivo V17 is around Rs 22,000 in India.
Additionally, Vivo is also said to bring an 8GB RAM variant of the Vivo U20 smartphone which recently made its debut in India.
Samsung Galaxy A51 and Galaxy S10 Lite
Samsung last launched a mid-range smartphone in India during the festive season a couple of months ago. The Galaxy A51 has been in the news for a while now and it may go official anytime soon in the Indian market. The Galaxy A51 will come as a successor to the Galaxy A50s that was launched a few months ago in India. As for the features, the Galaxy A51 may pack a punch-hole Super AMOLED display, quad-camera setup and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Besides the Galaxy A51, Samsung may launch Galaxy A41, Galaxy A31 and Galaxy S10 Lite smartphones in global markets. The Galaxy S10 Lite, in particular, will make its debut in India as well in December as the phone was spotted on Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).
HMD Global already scheduled a major event for December 5 where it’s expected to launch new phones including the likes of Nokia 8.2, Nokia 2.3 and Nokia 1 Plus successor. Right after the global launch, the Nokia 8.2 may reach the Indian market as well. Expected specs of the Nokia 8.2 include Snapdragon 730G SoC, punch-hole display, quad-camera setup and Android 10 out of the box.
