Nokia X7 details:

Nokia X7 aka Nokia 7.1 Plus will come with a display size of 6.18-inch with 2246×1080 resolution and 19:9 ratio. Equipped with 3400 mAH battery. An Octa-core Snapdragon 710 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz will power it. The Nokia X7 will be available in 4GB/6GB RAM + 64GB/128GB internal storage variants.

The device will be available in two color variants, Copper Gradient and a Silver one. According to rumors, the phone will come with minimal side bezels and a very small notch. The rear of the phone is protected with a glass panel.

Nokia X7 will come with a Zeiss-branded dual rear camera, (12+13) MP on the back and a 20MP front camera with dual-tone LED flash. The Dual-Camera may be the same or slightly improved unit that has been appreciated highly on Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco.

Also, the dual-tone LED flash is placed on the left side of the vertical camera. The Nokia 7.1 also displays ZEISS branding between the two cameras present on its rear. Unlike the upcoming Nokia phone, the Nokia 7.1 has the LED flash placed below the dual camera module.

There is no further information available on the pricing of the Nokia X7. The 32 GB storage + 3 GB RAM and 64 GB storage + 4 GB RAM editions of the Nokia 7.1 was introduced with the pricing of $349 and $400.

LG V40 ThinQ (October 3)

The LG V40 ThinQ is going to be the state-of-the-art smartphone released by the South Korean company.

The most standout aspect of the V40 will likely be the triple-camera set up on the back, a trend started earlier in 2018 with Huawei P20 Pro. However, the V40 will also have two front-facing cameras, which would make the V40 the first phone to feature a total of five lenses. It will comprise the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and a Quad DAC for high-quality audio,

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (October 9)

The Google Pixel 3 had quite a roller-coaster of a year with unscheduled releases and black market prototype selling.

The Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL will most probably feature the best camera in the game. It will also certainly be featuring the latest specs, including the Snapdragon 845, and bring wireless charging to the Pixel line. Along with the phones, Google is also expected to release a new smart display and 2-in-1 touchscreen Chromebook.

Razer Phone 2 (October 10)

The original Razer Phone was the first smartphone specifically geared towards gaming connoisseurs.

The Razer Phone 2 is going to be a slight variation of the Razer Phone formula and not a complete makeover. In fact, the leaked images reveal a device that looks almost identical to the original Razer Phone.

Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro (October 16)

The way things are shaping up, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro could be a major competitor to other releases. With the Kirin 980 processor, it will be the first 7-nanometer chipset in an Android phone. This could potentially make it the most power-efficient Android phone available. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 are also rumored to have triple rear cameras and wireless charging

OnePlus 6T (October 17)

The OnePlus 6 is one of the company’s most successful devices. The OnePlus 6T will likely be introducing new features like the highly anticipated in-display fingerprint sensor and for the first time ever will be launching in the United States. However, the OnePlus will no longer have a headphone jack, a disappointment to many users.
