The tech world is also brewing with more smartphones. From budget value-for-money smartphones to performance-oriented flagship devices, new smartphones can often be difficult to track, especially if you plan on buying a new phone in the near future. However, we have compiled a list of phones that are launching soon in India. Check out which of these phones you’d like to buy.
OnePlus 9 Series
Succeeding the popular OnePlus 8 and 8T series, the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are two of the most awaited smartphones right now. The devices, the looks for which were recently revealed officially, also mark the first time OnePlus will be joining hands with Swedish camera maker Hasselblad.
Leaks around the phones have revealed a good chunk of information about the two phones. Both the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 888 chipset. The OnePlus 9 Other features like the 65W fast charging, 120Hz refresh rate and an all-new multi-camera setup are also expected in the two phones.

The OnePlus 9 Series is set to launch on March 23, 2021. The live stream of the launch event will be available on the OnePlus YouTube channel and will start at 8:30 pm IST.
Realme 8 Series
Realme moved from the budget segment to the midrange and upper midrange segment with the Realme 6, and the same trend was followed by the updated Realme 7 series. Now with the Realme 8 series, the brand is expected to deliver more high-end features at mid-range price points than the series is known for.
This includes a 108MP main camera which is expected on at least one variant of the new Realme 8 series, likely the 8 Pro. The vanilla 8 is expected to feature a 64MP main camera instead. The phones are also expected to feature AMOLED display panels and in-display fingerprint sensors. While the Realme 8 is tipped to feature a MediaTek Helio G95 chipset, we expect the Realme 8 Pro to feature a Snapdragon chipset. However, 5G support is still not confirmed.
Realme had revealed in an interview with Indian Express that the brand will bring 5G to all phones that launch for above Rs 20,000. However, the Realme 8 series is expected to be priced below that, so we may not see 5G support unless the 8 Pro does come out with a top-end 5G variant. The Realme 8 series is set to launch in India on March 24 at 7:30 pm IST and will be available to live stream on the brand’s YouTube channel.

The phone, essentially a Pro version of the midrange Poco X3, is expected to feature a flagship chipset but at a mid-range price point, similar to the Poco F1 that launched years ago. Not a lot of concrete details are known about the Poco X3 Pro yet, but leaks have pointed to the presence of an older Snapdragon 800 series chip.
Apart from the chipset, the phone is expected to feature specifications that are pretty close to the original Poco X3. These include the design with a centre-aligned front camera, a large circular camera module and a 48MP quad-camera layout on the back.
The Poco X3 Pro is set to launch on March 22 globally, but an India-only launch is set for March 30. The live stream for the launch will be available on Poco India’s YouTube channel.
