Top 10+ Best Upcoming Mobile Phone Launches ⚡ December 2021

Which smartphones are launching in December? It’s the 1st time where I tell you about the upcoming smartphones next month.
Generally, 90% of the time it’s true but last month I mentioned many phones & 50-60% of them didn’t launch! And I’m really very sorry for it! But the situation is so due to chip shortage! And with that many smartphones that were going to launch but they didn’t. But it’s possible that the launches might get postponed but there are 7-8 phones that I’m 90% sure of their launch in December.

1) Asus 8Z – I called the Asus representatives before & they said that we’re ready to launch but there aren’t many phone stocks. And due to many of the supply chain issues they cannot launch the phone. I know I’ve been talking about it but they don’t know the dates. It’s going to launch, but we don’t know when. And like many people are asking about it, it’ll launch but don’t know when. But let’s talk about the phones that are going to launch for sure!
Redmi Note 11T – It’s launching on 30th November! And it might go on sale in December. It’s based on MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC & you already know that it’s Redmi Note 11(China). So that is confirmed! If you want to watch its unboxing, then we’ve made a video on Redmi Note 11(China).
And the other 2(Note 11 Pro & Pro+), they’re launching in India by other names.
Xiaomi 11i & Xiaomi 11i Hypercharge. Hypercharge due to its 120W fast charging in China. But when it’ll come in India, we’re not sure if it’ll be 100W because there’s no phone launched with that fast charging.
And you need to certify it with a process, so I’m not sure whether it’ll come to India with that charge.

But there’s 1 thing for sure, that they’ll launch in December end or January 1st week, the Xiaomi 11i & Xiaomi 11i Hypercharge. 3) Moto G200 5G – I’m very excited about this phone. It’ll be the cheapest SD888+ SoC phone! It’s going to be under Rs 40K & has already launched outside & will launch on 30th November in India or might get delayed. But most probably on the last day of November or the first week of December, it might launch. And it’s the cheapest SD888+ phone so let’s wait for it & it’ll obviously be 5G with flagship specifications.

Friends, this phone was going to launch under the name of the OnePlus 9RT but now the IMEI database says it's the OnePlus RT. And it might launch by mid to end December in India & it looks good with SD888 SoC & a 50MP camera.
Let’s see at what price it’ll launch but yes it’s launching before the end of December!
4) Redmi K50 Series – There’s a big launch in China in December & I don’t know by what name it’ll launch in India.
There are already hints & teasers of the K50 on the Weibo website. So definitely by mid to end December, it’ll launch.
And it’s said to come with great specifications! And this time the K50 Series will have a gaming edition on Dimensity 9000 SoC.
Dimensity 9000 SoC’s Geekbench scores are out & they’re crazy! Let it launch & we’ll see.
There’s 1 phone that I mentioned in the October/November’s video, that the iQOO 8 Legend is coming. And it might launch in December but I’m not sure it might even get cancelled.

Let’s hope it launches by December. It has a 2K screen with 120Hz fast refresh rate & flagship specifications but I don’t know about its launch. This is probably the 1st time I’m so unsure as the last video had many phones covered but the chip shortage has broken my confidence! And iQOO 8 Legend might be a victim of the chip problem. Let’s wait & watch!
realme – It’s surprising to see realme being so cold in launches as they used to launch 1 smartphone every month! But in December, it’ll change! Realme Narzo 50A Prime & realme Narzo C35’s rumors/teasers are out
& they’re already listed on the websites. So it’s pretty sure & I’m 99% sure that 1 or both phones might launch in December. So finally realme will make a comeback after 2-3 months! And these are budget series phones(Rs 10-15K). So not just flagship, but we’ll see some budget phones in December as well.

I’ll talk about China launches, OPPO & vivo Foldable phones are going to launch! Yes, finally! We guessed in our Smartphone 2021 Trends video about this & there weren’t many launches,
but finally OPPO & vivo are going to launch their foldable phones. Not in India, but in China for sure. Looking forward to that! December has another big event where we might see 1- or 2 good phones. I’m talking about the Qualcomm Tech Summit, where they’re launching their Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC & in that event Xiaomi 12 Ultra might launch based on that SoC. And along with that, the Xiaomi 12X might launch with Dimensity 9000. So during the Tech Summit we’ll know when & where these phones are launching.
We tried finding phone launches from Samsung, Infinix, Tecno etc but nothing as of yet! And it seems like they might not be launching any phones. So these were the phones that might launch in December & I’m not sure as the time after the festive season is a bit slow.

And the chip shortage is making it even slow! Especially this November as we haven’t unboxed any phones! Just 1 or 2. I’m missing it already! If you enjoyed the video, then do hit LIKE!
That’s all for this video, until the next one, Keep Trakin & Stay Safe!.

Top 10+ Best Upcoming Mobile Phone Launches ⚡ November 2021

Friends, September & October months were so busy! OMG, they had so many phone launches! You must’ve seen them, as we’ve done their unboxings & first impressions. And this is the video about upcoming smartphones for next month. I’m going to talk about the phones launching in November, but remember it’s an interesting time as it’s the festive season. And what are your plans for Diwali? I hope you’re having a great time! Yes in 2020 & 2021, the festivities were subdued & minimal due to the pandemic. I hope this Diwali the Covid cases have dropped down completely & I’m hoping everyone’s having a great time! It was as if November wouldn't be so great because many launches have already happened but no! Many exciting launches are coming up! I’m seriously telling you, watch the video till the end so that you know them all! I’m actually very surprised how so many phones are launching even after Diwali ends.

Because Diwali is on the 4th of October & then there’s November, but there are many phone launches coming up. Yes the quantity is less but the phones are exciting. So watch the video completely to know! If you enjoy the video & it helps you, then do hit LIKE & SUBSCRIBE! Firstly, let me clear this out! ASUS 8Z – I’m talking about them since June-July & I didn’t mention them but I regularly talk to the people of ASUS, & they want to launch & they’re going to the ASUS 8Z. Meaning those who want a compact Android phone with flagship level specifications, they can look at the 8Z.

And 90% it’ll launch by November end. Yes, I talked to ASUS that we’ve mentioned it twice in our upcoming video series And they also confirmed that it’s launching soon, but due to chip shortage & supply chain problems they couldn’t launch it. Otherwise imagine why they wouldn’t launch it. It’s Diwali & many people shop during this time & they’re waiting for it. So yes the compact flagship level ASUS 8Z is launching in November. And friends, it’s interesting as there are many flagship phones launching & I’m going to talk about OnePlus & iQOO. Both these brands are going to launch amazing flagship phones in India in November! Redmi Note 11 Series – They’re important as the Redmi Note series is the most popular series! And it’s launching in China this month(28th October) according to me.

There are 3 phones – Redmi Note 11, Redmi Note 11 Pro & Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus. And generally after launching the Redmi Note series in China, it launches in India after a month. According to that, I’m saying there could be 1-2 phones that are coming to India from the Redmi Note series by November end. Or maximum in December’s 1st/2nd week. So yeah, let’s wait for it this time as it’s said to have a 120W charging, will have 5G & would be on Dimensity SoCs, & it’s quite exciting as the Redmi Note 11 series is coming! Xiaomi 11T Series – It’s renamed now! And it’s said to be launched in India by mid November! There would be the Xiaomi 11T, the Xiaomi 11T Pro & they’re listed on the BIS certification website so launch is imminent. They’ll definitely launch by mid-end November. And remember they’re flagship level phones. So the Pro will be based on the Qualcomm SD888 SoC, it’ll have 108MP multiple camera setup, 120W fast charging etc.

So ya, the works! As I said, there are many flagships coming to India in November! Even after the festive season is over. And now to tell you, Xiaomi’s sub-brand POCO, no it’s an independent brand now! POCO M4 & M4 Pro – Either 1 or both phones might launch but remember, it’s a POCO phone so it’s a rebadged phone! And the one on the certification website is basically the Redmi Note 11 with the same code name, & has come under the POCO brand name. So it’ll be a rebranded phone that’ll launch in India by the end of November, I’m not sure about this but it might get launched.

The rumours & leaks are coming out slowly & it feels like it. So yes, POCO M4 & M4 Pro are expected! And talking about Xiaomi. Redmi K50 Series – It’s launching in China & not India. And with the amount of rumours on the specifications! OMG! They’re all some crazy specifications in the K series phones. So that’s launching too but in China. The phone for the masses which was going to launch before Diwali, but it’ll launch around Diwali. JioPhone Next – Remember, it’s a phone in the price range of Rs 3.5-4K. It’ll be based on the Qualcomm SD215 SoC.

It’ll have Android Go & it might launch before the 15th of November. Remember, this phone is made under Google’s partnership with Reliance Jio. So yeah, some interesting things are going to be on this phone! And it’s going to be for the masses! OnePlus 9RT 5G – We’ve been talking about this phone for many days now. It’s finally going to come by mid November. It’ll have the Qualcomm SD888 SoC, 50MP triple camera setup.

So OnePlus this time, launches their T-series which won’t be coming but the OnePlus 9RT is coming! It’s slightly lower than the flagship level & we’ll see at what price it comes. It’s said it’ll be around Rs 40K. So yes, OnePlus 9RT is definitely coming by mid November. There’s another amazing phone launching, which I’m looking forward to! It came in China with the name of iQOO 8 Pro but in India it’ll come by the name iQOO 8 Legend. iQOO 8 Legend – It’ll be based on the Qualcomm SD888+ SoC, it’ll have a 2K+ QHD+ display with some great specifications. iQOO has launched many phones this year & iQOO 8 Legend will be sitting right at the top of the heap! So it’s coming with some great specifications & it’s confirmed to come by mid November. Now friends, I don’t think OPPO/vivo are launching any phones, at least according to our sources & findings. So OPPO/vivo are not launching any phones, but Micromax & LAVA might launch their phones. There were some new about Micromax phones some 15-20 days ago so there might be phone coming from them, but I’m not sure so I’m not talking about it.

And generally Samsung which is usually in our list is also not launching any phone. So yeah, no OPPO, no vivo & no Samsung. Infinix might launch a phone as they launch 1 every month. So at this point I’m not sure but yes it might come but I’m not so sure. Yes, so this was our Upcoming Smartphone for next month(November) video, how did you find it? We take a lot of effort, research & talk with people of the industry & only then we make the video! So that we are accurate but we can't always be 100% accurate, but our hit rate is almost 90% So do hit LIKE on that note! That’s all for this video, until the next one, Keep Trakin & Stay Safe!.

Are Gaming Phones A Ripoff?

Hello everyone, I’m Dave 2D In this video, talk about gaming phones, and whether you should buy them Because different companies have different gaming phones In front of me, there are three gaming phones Razer Phone 2, Asus’ ROG Phone, and Xiaomi’s Black Shark Phone 2 Are all released this fall, the new game phone If you are considering buying one, maybe one of these three is suitable for you There are also gaming phones made by less well-known companies But if you want to buy, I suggest choosing from these three Next, we will talk about what I like, what I don’t like, and whether or not I should buy a gaming phone. First of all, the configuration is different All use Snapdragon 845, strong performance and enlarged screen But they are heavy and not cheap The cheapest is Xiaomi’s Black Shark 2, but it still costs 550$-600$ What distinguishes them from the flagship machine is the screen High refresh rate screen This is the real and original difference between gaming phones and other phones When gaming phones first appeared last year, they were equipped with high refresh rate screens. The benefits of a high refresh rate screen are hard to say in the video, especially when the video is recorded at a standard of 24 frames.

I’ve seen it with my own eyes, it’s really smooth I just picked up the Razer phone and played with the 120Hz screen and immediately felt the difference I'm afraid someone will ask, mention that the 120Hz of Razer phones is indeed a bit smoother than the 90Hz of ROG phones. But not every game supports high frame rate, some popular games are locked at 60 or even 30 frames ROG phones have the highest screen brightness AMOLED screen, the picture is clean and bright, the brightness is obviously better than the Razer phone 2 The screen of Razer Phone 2 has been improved compared to the previous model. The screen of 1 is very dark. It is better this year, but it still does not meet my expectations. Another point, Razer Phone 2 once again supports Netflix HDR However, the actual look and feel is not so good Netflix's HDR video is very dark on the Razer phone 2, especially in a well-lit environment The picture details in HDR mode are definitely better For example, the details of the bright area are significantly better on the Razer phone 2.

But the overall brightness is really too low. Really need a very bright screen to give full play to the power of HDR. HDR is like that And Razer phone 2 is not bright enough ROG phone's screen is brighter Even though it doesn’t have HDR certification, I think most people would prefer the screen of ROG phones to the Razer phone 2. Even if the details of the picture in the bright place are lost, it is because the screen of the ROG phone is really bright The screen of the Black Shark phone 2 is relatively ordinary, the ordinary 60Hz screen but the look and feel is still great The exterior design is quite different.

Personally, I like the design of ROG phones the most. I think it’s the most unique design. I really like the etched lines on the back glass, the copper color elements and it’s great Razer phones look more square, still the design style of Nextbit Compared with the first generation, the second generation glass back cover makes it more high-end But still very square Black Shark 2 is less distinctive It's not ugly, but the appearance is very ordinary, not as iconic as the first two Although these three are all gaming phones, only ROG is equipped with a headphone jack Let me say that any gaming device, especially mobile phones, should have a headphone jack Any gaming device in 2018 should have But for some reason, both Razer 2 and Black Shark 2 need adapters. Maybe this is the trend in 2018. Speaking of ergonomic design, none of the three models are very comfortable to hold. In terms of long-term gaming, Razer phones have the worst experience If you hold it for a long time, the edges and corners of the phone will be very scratchy.

Compared to GBA or NS, the other two are also general GBA and NS are designed to adapt to the palm But these are mobile phones. They are so thin that they can’t hold them very well. I’d like to say that Black Shark 2 is better than the other two, but it’s average Ok light All three mobile phones have a backlit logo, you can use software to control the color or something I have seen the backlight logo on other gaming peripherals or notebooks Now finally on the phone But mobile phones and peripherals are a little different I have said in many videos The lights on peripherals and laptops can be used for fun, but the freshness will soon disappear I don’t know why, I like the lights on my phone very much You can customize the color of the logo In 2018, this is very fresh This makes your phone instantly different For example, there is a blue logo, which I like very much Make your phone look different And the mobile phone is my personal item, so this kind of customization ability is great I think the lights of Razer and ROG are great ROG has the largest light area, so I think it’s the best There are also lights on the side of the Black Shark 2, but it’s a bit redundant on the phone OK, the speakers of the three mobile phones are all front So the probability of covering the microphone is reduced when playing games, good thing The volume is full, but in terms of sound quality, Asus is the best Razer 2 is close behind, while Black Shark 2 is slightly behind, ranking third Good performance, the performance of all three mobile phones is very strong, Snapdragon 845 ROG mobile phones are packed with chips in the box, which means that ASUS deliberately selects the strongest performance in the same batch to use The highest frequency can be up to 2.96GHz instead of the ordinary 2.8 There is indeed a gap in the running time, but it is not obvious Playing games makes you even less aware of the gap Mobile games are very strong The battery capacity of the three is the same, all are 4000mAh Black Shark 2 consumes the fastest power, I don’t know if it’s a software problem, because this phone is not a mass production version Camera, let’s talk quickly Very average Razer Phone 2 may be the best of the three The resolution is the highest, and the dark details are better than ROG phones But compared to Pixel and iPhone, it’s really incomparable Finally, I want to talk about a unique function of ROG, the air trigger To those who don’t know is to put a sensor in the frame of the phone, you can perceive it by pressing it Like the console game controller, there are L2, R2, L1, R1 The air trigger simulates these buttons instead of real physical buttons The essence is the sensor in the middle frame Look directly, this idea is great The first time I heard and tried it was in Taiwan, I felt great But after trying ROG phones for a while, I found some limitations 1.

A little delay It will take a while after pressing If you bind it to an important function, such as shooting Then you definitely don’t want to delay, you have to fire immediately after aiming See the enemy, aim, press the trigger, fire But the processing time of those few milliseconds is annoying It is very convenient if it is bound to less important functions But a very important function, I will not tie it to the trigger Another point I noticed is that the maximum sensitivity did not meet my requirements. I want it to react when touched But you have to press hard, deliberately This again makes it less convenient It's not a bad thing Very inconspicuous, you can’t even see that there is a trigger here I think it can be solved in software, but now it’s cool, but not practical enough Another point, the vibration motor on ROG mobile phone is very powerful I have felt it, the strongest vibration motor on the phone If you like that tactile feedback, then it can satisfy you Vibration motors can also be used in games, if any games are used, it’s also great ROG mobile phone also has an accessory, which is a fan for heat dissipation.

I have used it for a while and it feels like a fancy thing It's not completely useless, it can dissipate heat, but it has no effect on performance In the running score and stress test with and without fans, I get the same results Maybe it’s useful if you play games for hours But in my personal test, it didn’t work. Razer phones have an optional wireless charger, which I like very much There are lights, it is annoying at night, you can turn it off But it has two forms, the form is placed flat, the phone is placed flat on top There is also a stand shape, which can be charged while watching a show, which is very cool Black Shark 2 comes with a handle that can be stuck on the phone case to make the gaming experience more ergonomically comfortable Connect via Bluetooth, no wire required I like this little accessory You can buy such an accessory on any mobile phone, but Xiaomi comes with it, which is great Okay, summary Are these phones worth buying? They are not cheap Gaming phones, definitely considered high-end products I found that Razer Phone 2 is the most balanced The 120Hz screen is great, the system UI, some games can make full use of the screen The sound quality of the speakers is full, the lighting is cool, and the camera is improved compared to the previous generation My opinion, even if you never play games on your phone This is also a great phone The user experience itself is great, if you still play games, it’s even more important As for ASUS ROG phones, it doesn’t feel so comprehensive.

Definitely a mobile phone for players If you don’t play games at all, I don’t recommend buying it Many of its features, including accessories, are to enhance the gaming experience But if you are a player and you can use these features, then it is great, especially its screen is very good Black Shark 2, the cheapest, but if you are in North America, it may be more difficult to buy it But considering its game feel and accessories, it is also a good choice But unless you don’t care about the camera performance at all, don’t buy these phones Because it costs 600$ to 900$ to buy them, you can easily buy other phones with much better cameras at this price.

If you care about cameras, don’t buy gaming phones If you really like the RGB backlight logo (To be honest, it’s really cool) Then you can buy one I hope you like this video. If you like it, please like and subscribe to the one-stop one-stop service. See you in the next issue~.

“What does the consumer want today when it comes to smartphones? Good looks, features, great camera and a price tag which makes it worth the purchase. If one broadly classifies, there is a section of consumers which prefers budget smartphones that can be used for a small amount of time and then upgraded as desired without burning a hole in the pocket. The second category absolutely swears by the premium price tag and treats the device like a child for a significant number of years and upgrading only when there is a dire need. Then there is a third category, which somewhere lies between the budget or mid-range and premium segment. Apologies for stereotyping here, but similar to how the structure of upper middle class families works, these range of upper mid-range smartphones also offer a gorgeous architecture, aping the premium segment, while keeping the costs controlled by not being over ambitious with specs”
