Last week, we saw Lenovo's budget Vibe K5 and flagship OnePlus 3 being released in India. This week, three popular smartphone series are expected to make their debut.
Here are the new handsets that are on the way to the stores near you this week:
Motorola Moto G4:
Motorola via Twitter has confirmed the release of the generic Moto G4 series model in India on June 22. It will be made available exclusively on Amazon India. The company has not announced the device's price yet, but our guess is the Moto G4 is likely to be priced under Rs. 13,000, if not lesser.
For the uninitiated, both Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 share most of the specifications. The key differentiating factors between the two models is that the former houses a fingerprint sensor on the home button and superior 16MP primary camera with laser autofocus on the back, whereas the latter features a 13MP snapper on the back and it lacks biometric security sensor. Rest of specifications remain the same in the both the devices.
They sport a 5.5-inch full HD display with Gorilla Glass 3 shield and runs Android Marshmallow OS, Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor, and a 3000mAh battery with Turbo charger.
Huawei Honor 5C:
Last week, Huawei-owned Honor via Facebook revealed that the company will launch a new smartphone powered by the proprietary Kirin 650 processor. Though Honor refrained from revealing the device's moniker, the CPU name "Kirin 650" has led many to believe that the phone the company is planning to launch this Wednesday might be Honor 5C, which was unveiled in China in late April.
Honor 5C is an entry-level phone. It features a 5.2-inch full HD display, Android Marshmallow OS, Huawei's proprietary HiSilicon Kirin 650 octa-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage and a 3,000mAh battery.
The Honor 5C also boasts fingerprint sensor on the back, and above it the company has incorporated a 13MP camera with LED flash. In the front, it houses 8MP snapper with f/2.0 aperture.
Sony Xperia XA:
After launching the flagship Xperia X for Rs. 48,990, Sony is all geared up to roll-out the mid-range series phone Xperia XA in the country.
Sony's Xperia XA is most expensive among the three phones launching this week. It costs Rs. 20,990 and features a 5.0-inch HD screen and house MediaTek (MT6755) octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory and a 2300mAh cell.
It also comes with 13MP primary camera on the rear-side with 1/3-inch Exmor RS for mobile sensor, quick launch, Hybrid auto focus, HDR photo, 5x Clear image zoom, auto scene recognition and a 8MP wide-angle camera.
