With the pan- India lockdown gradually easing up, smartphone brands in India seems to be on an overdrive to launch new devices in India. One website where leaksters could potentially look at upcoming products for the Indian market is the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) portal, which has, in the past, been the source for multiple leaks. Today is no exception. We have come across as many as six new handsets that could be launched in India thanks to their recent appearance on BIS. These new devices include the Realme C11, the Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, Huawei P40 Lite, Vivo X50 Pro, and a yet un-named Vivi handset with the model number Vivo 2004.
Let’s start with the Realme C11 first.
You might be aware of the fact that Realme’s upcoming budget handset – the Realme C11 is set to be officially launched on June 30 in Malaysia. While Realme themselves haven’t officially talked about a possible India launch, we came across a BIS certification document for the device, which is a clear indication about the device making it to India in the next few weeks.
Take a look at the BIS documentation below.
As seen from the image above, it does not reveal the key specifications of the phone or talk about a possible announcement date.
What is evident from its naming scheme, though, is that the Realme C11 belongs to Realme’s entry-level C series handsets that have been traditionally positioned below the INR 10k mark. The Realme C11 is likely to follow the same tradition. As far as the specifications are concerned, we know that the handset comes powered by the new octa-core MediaTek Helio G35 SoC. This chipset is based on a 12nm manufacturing process and packs in two clusters of ARM Cortex-A53 CPUs with a maximum cook speed of 2.3 GHz.
Next up is the Huawei P40 series that consists of the Huawei P40, the Huawei P40 Pro, and the Huawei P40 Lite. These are Huawei’s latest camera-centric devices that have been around for a while in international markets. All three handsets, however, does not come with Google Play Services due to the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China. Nevertheless, going by the BIS documentation below, these three handsets are likely to make it to India soon.
Next up, we have the new Vivo X50 that saw officialdom in China not too long ago. Along with this device, a new handset nearing the model number Vivo 2004 has also appeared in the BIS portal.
Note that the appearance of these handsets on the BIS portal is not a guarantee for a possible India launch – especially in the case of the Huawei devices. Nevertheless, there is no harm in speculating.
