It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC coupled with Adreno 509 GPU for graphics. It features 12MP+5MP dual rear cameras for portrait shots. It also has a 20MP selfie camera up front.

Nokia 6 (2018) was announced at the MWC earlier this year. It runs the latest, stock Android Oreo software out of the box. Now that it offers a better processor and Carl Zeiss optics, it remains among the best mid-range phones under Rs 20,000. But it still retains a 5.5-inch full HD 16:9 screen featuring Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Given that it’s a part of the Android One program, Google promises OS updates for at least two years. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. It has a 16MP main camera and 8MP front camera for selfies.

The 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage model of this smartphone is expected early next week. It comes with a Nokia 6.1 moniker and a price tag or Rs 18,999. Paying the extra Rs 2000 for it would be well justified.

Available for Rs 19,999 on Amazon, Huawei P20 Lite is a toned down variant of the company’s flagship P20 Pro. Like every other recent Huawei handset, this one runs the company’s EMUI 8.0 on top of Android Oreo out of the box. It sports a 5.84-inch full HD+ (2280 x 1080 pixels) FullView display with 19:9 aspect ratio.
