The Mobile World Congress will commence later this month, and we expect dozens of mobile phones getting launched during the expo. These devices will make it to the Indian market within a matter of weeks. Not everyone could keep up with so many phones and if you’re looking out for a new smartphone to buy, it will be worth waiting for a few weeks before making a purchase. So, we thought it would be of help if we can list the five most anticipated phones that will be launching in India soon.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Series
Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and the Galaxy S10 Plus on February 20, and these phones will reach Indian shores by the 6th of March 2019. The Galaxy S10e will be the most affordable smartphone in the series, with prices starting from INR 50,000. The Galaxy S10 Plus will be priced starting at INR 65,000. The costliest phone in the series, the 1TB storage variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus, will be priced below the INR 1,00,000 mark in India.
All Galaxy S10 series smartphones will be equipped with the Exynos 9820 processor and run Android 9 Pie-based Samsung One UI. All of them will have Super AMOLED screens with HDR10, at least 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, stereo speakers, hybrid dual-SIM card slots, wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, and 3.5mm headphone jacks. The phones will be available in a variety of colors.
The Galaxy S10e will have a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen, Exynos 9820 processor 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, microSD card slot (hybrid), dual-camera setup at the rear, punch-hole-style selfie camera in the display, and a 3100mAh battery. The Galaxy S10 will feature a 6.1-inch Super AMOLED screen, a triple-camera setup at the rear, a single selfie camera, and a 3400mAh battery. The Galaxy S10 Plus will use a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a triple-camera setup at the rear, a dual-selfie camera at the front, and a 4100mAh battery.
Nokia 9 PureView
The Nokia 9 PureView will be Nokia’s first camera-focussed smartphone in years. It will feature a 5.99-inch AMOLED screen with HDR10 certification, a penta-lens camera setup at the rear, a single selfie camera, Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, a microSD card slot, a dual-SIM card slot, the latest connectivity features, a 4150mAh battery, and wireless charging. Since India is a key market for HMD Global, we expect the phone to be launched in India within the next two months. We do not have any pricing related information as of now.
Redmi Note 7
The Redmi Note 7 was launched in China late last year, and we expect it to make it to India next month. It is a huge upgrade over the Redmi Note 6 series. The Redmi Note 7 features a 6.3-inch IPS LCD screen with Full HD+ resolution and a U-shaped notch for the selfie camera. It runs Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 software. It features a 48MP+5MP dual-camera setup at the rear and a 13MP front-facing camera.
The phone is equipped with the Snapdragon 660 processor, up to 6GB RAM, up to 64GB storage, and a microSD card slot. It also supports 4K video recording and has a USB Type-C port, for a change. Similar to all Xiaomi phones, the Redmi Note 7 will be a dual-SIM smartphone. The phone will come packed with a 4000mAh battery and support for Quick Charge 4.
Moto G7 Series
The Moto G7 series consists of four smartphones: Moto G7 Play, Moto G7, Moto G7 Plus, and Moto G7 Power. We expect at least two of these phones to be launched in the Indian market over the next few weeks.
The Moto G7 Play has a 5.7-inch HD+ IPS LCD screen with a conventional notch, a Snapdragon 632 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, a single 13MP camera at the rear, an 8MP selfie camera, and a 3000mAh battery.

The Moto G7 Power has a 6.2-inch HD+ IPS LCD screen, a 12MP camera at the rear, an 8MP selfie camera at the front, Snapdragon 632 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, and a 5000mAh battery.

Jio Phone 3
The Jio Phone 3 will be Reliance Industries’ third Jio-branded phone and first Jio-branded smartphone. We all know how popular the Jio Phone turned out to be. Later, the company released a QWERTY keyboard variant of the phone with a larger screen, and named it the Jio Phone 2. Now, it is being reported that the Jio Phone 3 will run Android smartphone operating system and support all the popular apps and games that we can use on other Android devices.
