Latest Mobile Phones Released in India

Here are the latest and new mobile phones release in India this month.

1. OnePlus 6

Review: The OnePlus 6 is a big leap by the OnePlus team. Probably the biggest and smartest product from them from a long time. Typically new products from OnePlus is often just a new number on the product. But in OnePlus 6’s case, it’s a huge jump from it’s previous version.

Here are it’s main highlights.

  • 20MP+16MP primary dual camera
  • Super slow motion, Portrait mode etc
  • 16MP front facing camera
  • 15.95 centimeters (6.28-inch) FHD
  • Full Optic AMOLED 19:9 display with 2280 x 1080 pixels resolution.
  • 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass
  • 56 GB RAM, 64 GB internal memory and dual nano SIM dual-standby (4G+4G)
  • 3300mAH lithium Polymer battery
  • Face Unlock, Fingerprint scanner, Water Resistant, Glass back and NFC

Basically, it’s a phone, better than the iPhoneX, but for half the price and on Android platform. Now, who can say no to that?

2. RealMe 1

Review: An amazing camera, super performing battery, and a hard working processor at a budget price – that is RealMe. A good mobile phone that has understood the Indian market very well unlike other “foreign” brands. I can’t find a reason to dislike RealMe 1.

Here are it’s main highlights.

  • 15.24 centimeters (6-inch)
  • 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution (403 ppi)
  • 6GB RAM, 128GB internal memory
  • Triple slot tray for dual SIM (nano+nano) dual-standby (4G+4G)
  • 13MP back camera and 8MP front camera
  • Fast facial unlock
  • Android v8.1 Oreo based ColorOS 5.0
  • 2GHz Helio P60 AI processor with 8-cores CPU and 2-cores AI CPU
  • 3410mAH lithium-ion AI battery providing talk-time of 30 hours and standby time of 380 hours

I think RealMe is really the phone for India. A perfect balance between price and features.

Why buy a new mobile phone?

Just look at your current mobile phone. Isn’t it old compared to some of the new mobile phones launched in India? Mobile phones in Indian market keep updating itself, constantly.

A better camera with higher resolution, a thinner phone, brighter display, better sound – everything is better in a new mobile phone. I personally believe that a mobile phone is worth keeping for maximum 2-3 years. After that, buy a new phone as there is always new technology. I keep upgrading my mobile phone every 2-3 years and currently I have an iPhoneX.

So, short answer is – buy a new mobile phone every 2-3 years and keep yourself updated.

Where to buy new mobile phones in India?

This is a classic question. Should you buy online or from your local mobile store?

Well, my answer is, where ever you can get a good price. Sometimes it is online, sometimes it is at your local store. Further down in this article, I will show you how you can get a good discount on a new mobile phone from your local mobile phone store, anywhere in India.

Why new mobile phones get sold out fast online?

For example, when a new mobile phone is released, companies tie up with online websites exclusively to promote their product. This is why you see that some brands are available only on Amazon or Flipkart initially. At this time, the mobile companies give a certain amount of phones to these online websites, just to create the hype. Like they will give 1,000 units to Amazon, for an exclusive sale for the first week of launch. This creates an artificial demand, because everybody is trying to buy the phone. And in few minutes, all the phones get sold (because there were only 1,000 of them in the first place, right?). Now, this will create even more demand and a perception in other people’s mind that this is some hard to get phone, that I should also get.

My recommendation is not to fall for this kind of offers. If there is a price discount, yes go for it. But just because everybody wants a new mobile phone, you don’t need to get one.

How to get discounts at local mobile store anywhere in India

This is the interesting part. You know that in India, the best deals on electronics, especially mobile phones is available online. Local stores always have their margins up because there are more middle men in between you and the company. Add their commission and your price goes up.

On online shops however, there are no middle men. The companies sell their phones directly (of with just one middle man) on online shopping platforms that they are able to keep the price lowest.

Now, when you visit a local store and ask for a particular mobile, you’re looking at the highest price. The advantage you have however is that you get the product immediately and you have someone to talk and get back to if there are any issues.

But, how to get the local stores to reduce their prices? Simple. Take your mobile with you, show the discounted price of the product you’re interested in on your favorite online platform (say Flipkart or Amazon) and ask them to match the price. If you’re a serious buyer (or if they feel like that), the local store will reduce the price of their product, strip off their margins and try to match the price with the online website.

I try this tactic all the time and it works like a charm.
