Smartphone manufacturers consider the Indian market one of the largest for them. Most of them have setup their assembly units in the country and their models are made available here as soon as they are launched in China or elsewhere. While the year 2018 saw many new models and features being introduced, offering a wide choice to the customers, it appears 2019 could be even more exciting. Interestingly, the month of January itself may witness a large number of models being made available in the Indian market. Here is a brief account of the models expected and their likely specs.
Huawei Honor View 20
This phone is likely to come with top-end specs. The display is likely to be 6.4inches and the CPU, the Kirin 980SoC, Huaweiâ€™s latest offering. The phone will sport 8GB of RAM and a 4000mAh battery. But it is the camera section that everyone will be keen to know more about this device: a dual camera setup in the rear one of which is 48MP and the other a 3D ToF sensor and the front camera for selfies as big as 25MP. The battery is likely to get fast charging support.
Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20
The news from Samsung is that the company is planning to change the numbering system of the models from single to double digits. So, it will be the Samsung galaxy M10, M20 and M30 and so on. Some people expect that the flagship S series phones will also be brought into this system. If the Samsung Galaxy S10 models are released this year, the 2020 models will be S20 and not S11. There are at least two or three M series phones likely to be launched in the Indian market in January 2019. Details are still awaited.
