List of smartphone launches in August: The novel coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the world, which means that many regions are still under lockdown restrictions. Meanwhile, companies across the world are working hard, despite the challenges to launch the latest versions of their smartphones in the market. With the demand for these devices increasing during the pandemic, smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, Realme, and iQOO are looking to launch new smartphones over the course of this month. The Samsung Galaxy M32 5G, iQOO 8 5G, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Realme GT are some of the devices from these manufacturers that we could see later this month.
Samsung Galaxy M32 5G
Samsung has launched a handful of affordable new 5G smartphones over the past few months and the South Korean company is looking to add the Galaxy M32 5G to that list, an upgraded version of its recently launched Galaxy M32 that was launched in July with a FHD+ AMOLED display, 6,000mAh battery and quad-camera setup featuring a 64MP sensor. According to reports, the device is rumoured to come with the MediaTek Dimensity 720 chipset under the hood along with 6GB of RAM and run on Android 11. We do not know the exact date when the Galaxy M32 5G will be launched, but the support pages have gone live on the company's website.

iQOO 8 5G
The iQOO 8 5G is expected to feature flagship specs, just like its predecessor, the iQOO 7 that was launched in India a few months back. This phone is expected to arrive with a Snapdragon 888 Plus processor under the hood along with 12GB of RAM, according to rumours. The device could also come with a 2K resolution screen, with a fast 120Hz refresh rate. Not much is known about the device's camera, but the phone is expected to support the RAM expansion feature that could expand the rumoured 12GB RAM by another 4GB provided there is enough disk space. While the device will launch first in China, customers in India may have to wait a little longer for this phone to launch after it arrives in China on August 17.
There isn't much doubt about the specs of the Realme GT because this smartphone has already been launched in China and the company has clarified that the device will bear the same specifications in India. Customers can also look forward to a Master Edition version of the smartphone that will reportedly be launched at the India launch event. We have previously reported the launch of the Realme GT that is powered by a Snapdragon 888 processor, with a FHD+ AMOLED screen that refreshes at 120Hz. The phone comes with 12GB of memory and 256GB of internal storage, and is powered by a 4,500mAh battery that can charge at up to 65W.
Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 and Galaxy Flip 3
At the company's much-awaited August 11 event, South Korean giant Samsung is all set to launch the latest versions of its high-end foldable devices, the Galaxy Fold 3 and the Galaxy Flip 3. The Galaxy Fold 3 is likely to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and is expected to come with a large 7.6 primary display along with a smaller 6.2-inch external display for when the device is shut. It could feature a triple camera setup featuring three 12MP sensors. The Galaxy Flip 3, on the other hand, could feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset and a 6.7-inch display. The device might sport a dual-camera setup at the rear side of the device, with a 1.9-inch secondary display when the device is shut. Pricing for the device is currently unknown, and users will have to wait until the Galaxy Unpacked event to know more about these upcoming devices.
