Upcoming smartphone launches in July 2022
Oppo Reno 8 Pro
Announced in China previously, the Oppo Reno 8 Pro in India seems more likely to be the Reno 8 Pro+ model. That means we could be seeing the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chip doing duties under the hood, a 120Hz OLED display, Oppo's MariSilicon chip for cameras, new camera sensors, and faster 80W charging – all wrapped in what seems to be a beautifully designed body made of glass and metal. The Reno 8 Pro could be priced under Rs. 45000.

The Oppo Reno 8 will be the more affordable variant of the Reno 8 Pro, despite having a similar design and same camera sensors. This one will miss out on the MariSilicon chip, have a 90Hz OLED display, a Dimensity 1300 chip, and the same 80W wired charging. The Reno 8 could be replacing the Reno 7 that was launched earlier in 2022.
Redmi is back at its rebranding game with the Redmi K50i, which is essentially going to be a Redmi Note 11T Pro underneath. Still, the phone brings back the Redmi K series to India and this one could be all about performance, thanks to its Dimensity 8100 chipset. The phone will also feature a 144Hz variable refresh rate display, a 5060mAh battery with 67W wired charging, and 64MP led triple rear camera setup. Rumours suggest the phone could have a starting price of less than Rs. 30000.
Nothing Phone (1)
Launching on July 12, there is almost nothing we don't know about the Nothing Phone (1) (saw the pun?). This is a souped up midrange smartphone that has one gimmick to rely on – its Glyph interface, which is essentially a tastefully arranged system of LED notification lights at the back. Otherwise, the Phone (1) has a Snapdragon 778G+ chip, a 50MP Sony IMX766 camera, a 120Hz OLED display, a 4500mAh battery, and a cool transparent rear design. Prices are expected to start from as low as Rs. 30,000.
Google Pixel 6A
The Google Pixel 6A was announced at the I/O 2022 event but the phone is yet to hit the markets. Why we mentioned this? That's because Google has confirmed bringing the Pixel 6A to India this year, although no idea when. The Pixel 6A is going global this month and we expect it to launch soon. The phone uses the same Tensor chip as the Pixel 6, has a 60Hz OLED display, two rear cameras, and the iconic Pixel 6 design. Price? We have no idea yet but it could be a Nothing Phone (1) and Apple iPhone SE 3 challenger.
