Soon after Google announced its third generation pure Android Pixel phones, OnePlus took the wraps off its first phone with in-display fingerprint sensor and that was the OnePlus 6T. In addition to the Pixel 3, the Pixel 3 XL and the OnePlus 6T, the other stars of the month of October were the Honor 8X and HMD Global’s Nokia 3.1 Plus. Apple’s budget iPhone XR also went on sale in India and is now available.Looks like November may turn out to be a busy month as well. Smartphone makers like Xiaomi, Nokia, Vivo, Huawei, and Samsung are set to launch their next phones in India. The most anticipated of all is the Redmi Note 6 Pro that Xiaomi just launched in China and Thailand. Rumours suggest Xiaomi could price the Redmi Note 6 Pro under Rs 20,000. Giving a tough competition to the Xiaomi phone, Vivo is now gearing up to launch an under Rs 15,000 phone called the Y95 in the country. The Vivo is yet to official reveal the launch details about the Y95, but we at the India Today Tech can confirm that the smartphone will be launching by the end of November, possibly after Xiaomi launches its Redmi Note 5 Pro successor. Huawei is also looking towards launching the Mate 20 Pro in India this month, and this is something that the company has already confirmed.So, a number of phones are coming soon. Though, the following ones are worth noting.advertisementXiaomi Redmi Note 6 ProXiaomi has already launched the Redmi Note 6 Pro in Thailand and in China. Now that the smartphone is already official in its home market, we expect Xiaomi to bring the Redmi Note 6 Pro in India very soon.

Some rumours also hint that the Redmi Note 6 Pro could be priced somewhere close to the Redmi Note 5 Pro which currently sells for Rs 14,999 in India.Apart from the India launch dates and the price, we already know everything about the Redmi Note 6 Pro.

The company, however, is yet to reveal the exact India launch details of the Nokia 7.1. The Nokia 7.1 has already been announced in the European market. As far as the overall design is concerned, the Nokia 7.1 looks and feels similar to the Nokia 6.1 Plus, which is actually great considering the Nokia 6.1 Plus has received positive response for its all glass finish design and sleek look. Some rumours suggest that HMD could price the Nokia 7.1 around Rs 20,000 in India so that it can compete with the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro. Both the Nokia and Xiaomi phones are touting their cameras. The Nokia 7.1 comes with Zeiss optics, much like the Nokia 7 Plus. It comes with 12MP + 5MP camera configuration on the back.advertisementVivo Y95Vivo mostly promotes its V series phones in India, but this time, the company is changing its strategy.
