These smartphones will become available in India once lockdown ends
Over the past couple of months, several new smartphones have launched in India but haven't gone on sale due to the ongoing nation-wide lockdown. However, once the ban on the online sale of non-essential items is lifted, we can expect some of these much-awaited handsets, including the OnePlus 8 Pro, iPhone SE (2020), and Motorola RAZR, to hit the shelves.
iPhone SE (2020): Price starts at Rs. 42,500
The recently launched iPhone SE (2020), which has already gone on sale in as many as 40 countries, is expected to become available in India soon after the lockdown ends. To recall, the handset sports an iPhone 8-like design with chunky bezels, metal-glass body, and IP67 water resistance. It comes with a 4.7-inch HD+ LCD display, Touch ID sensor, and flagship A13 Bionic chipset.
The iPhone SE comes with a single rear camera
Apple claims the new iPhone SE has the best single-camera system ever seen in an iPhone with a 12MP (f/1.8 aperture) sensor on the back and a 7MP front-facing camera. The rear camera offers features such as OIS and 4K video recording at 60fps.
Redmi Note 9 Pro Max: Price starts at Rs. 14,999
The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max was scheduled to release on March 25 but its sale has been delayed indefinitely. However, we expect it to become available in the coming days. It features a 6.67-inch Full HD+ punch-hole display and comes with Snapdragon 720G chipset, 6GB/8GB of RAM, and 64GB/128GB of storage. Under the hood, it has a 5,020mAh battery which supports 33W fast-charging.
