The phone will launch a 3GB RAM variant. The Samsung Galaxy M01s is expected to be the upgrade over the Galaxy M01 device that was launched in June.
Currently, the Galaxy M01 costs Rs 8,999, and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy M01s price in India is also expected to be under Rs 10,000. It will reportedly be powered by a MediaTek Helio P22 processor. It is said to come with Android 9 out-of-the-box, instead of Android 10. The handset is tipped to feature a 4,000mAh battery. As the device has been spotted on the official Samsung website, the Galaxy M01s is likely to launch in the coming weeks.
The Vivo X50 will launch in India on July 16, as per various media reports. The Vivo X50 features a 6.56-inch AMOLED flat screen. There is a punch hole on the front housing a 32-megapixel main camera and on the back is a 48-megapixel sensor with standard OIS. There is also an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera sensor that doubles up as a macro sensor as well. Finally, there is a 13-megapixel telephoto camera. The phone has a 4,200mAh battery and 33W fast charging.
The Vivo X50 Pro features a 6.5-inch OLED display and is powered by the Snapdragon 765G as well. It also has the same Sony IMX598 48-megapixel sensor. However, it packs a gimbal-like stabilization with it. The brand claims the setup can offer more stable videos than any of the competing phones. There is also the 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, the 13-megapixel telephoto camera, and an 8-megapixel periscope lens. The phone is powered by a 4,315 mAh battery and 33W fast charging.
