Samsung has officially launched Galaxy S20 FE 5G variant in India online. It has a launch price of Rs 47,999 for the 128GB storage variant. The lowest price for the 4G LTE variant launched a while back is Rs 36,999 now ( April 2021 Price ).

What’s the difference? The 5G Galaxy S20 FE ( Fan Edition ) is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset while the 4G LTE variant launched in India a while back came with Samsung’s Exynos 990 chipset. Other than this difference, the rest of the specs remain the same. Since we don’t have fully functional 5G networks in India, you won’t be able to connect to 5G any soon, however, you can get a better performing smartphone with the Snapdragon 865 inside.

Amazon.in has put up a promo teaser page for the upcoming OnePlus 8 5G Smartphone. It reads “Lead with Speed”. According to the promo page, OnePlus 8 Series will launch in India on April 14th.
Since India is under lockdown, there is every chance the launch event would be streamed online instead of a physical event somewhere with all the media. It will be available to pre-order from Amazon.in soon after launch, but there is a very high chance for shipping delays.
Even though official specs are not available, since this is a flagship device, we can be sure the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G chipset. OnePlus is also rumored to launch a mid-range smartphone this time around named OnePlus Z.

Due to the ongoing Huawei ban, Honor 30s will ship without Google Apps like Play Store. Since this is a mid-range 5G handset, it will be launching Globally as well as in India in the future. Official launch dates will be announced later.
Google Pixel Phones are famous for their computational photography magic. The HDR+ and Night mode Google Camera offers are second to none. They often produce usable, noiseless images in even difficult lighting conditions with often just a click.
In other areas, however, Google pixel phones often fail to achieve high flagship standards.
Let’s take Pixel 4 for an example. When everyone was pushing out phones with an ultra-wide-angle lens, google chose to ship it with a telephoto lens instead. A true flagship phone should have had all 3 focal lengths on boart – telephoto, wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle. Look at iPhone 11 Pro for an example. Pixel 4 also didn’t support 4K at 60fps, which iPhones have been doing for years.
According to many reports and leaks online, Google’s 2020 flagship Pixel 5 would be a mid-range Android smartphone. While everyone else is using Snapdragon 865 on their high-end phones, Google is rumored to be shipping Pixel 5 with Snapdragon 765G instead. Thankfully, this is also a 5G chipset.
Apple is rumored to be planning to launch a mid-range iPhone in 2020, similar to its older iPhone SE. Maybe, Google wants to compete with this upcoming iPhone and had to cut costs. That would be a good reason to go for SD765G instead of SD865.
Google is also planning to launch Pixel 4a soon with mid-range specs and $399 price. It will probably launch in India as well in the upcoming months.
Xiaomi and Amazon.in was gearing up to launch Mi 10 5G in India on March 31st, 2020.

Pre-order Offer Previously Announced on Amazon.in Free Mi Wireless power bank worth Rs 2,499 + up to Rs 2500 OFF with Axis Bank Cards.

The display is a 6.67 inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen with Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. The maximum refresh rate supported is 90hz, which should give a fluid UI experience.

Currently, on DxOMark Mobile Phone Camera Ratings, Mi 10 shares the top spot along with Oppo Find X2.

Mi 10 also comes with a 13MP F2.4 aperture ultra-wide-angle lens. There are two more sensors at the back. A 2MP sensor is used to capture depth information to use in portrait mode and another 2MP sensor next to it lets you shoot macro shots.
