After a roller coaster year, we are in the last month of the year and we expect it to be slightly more happening. While most brands are now planning for the devices slated to launch in the next quarter, some do not want to let go of the momentum they’ve gained in the last few months.

Motorola is one such brand. Unfazed by the chipset shortage, this Chinese brand had planned its inventories way in advance. As a result, Motorola was probably the most aggressive brand when it comes to launches in the later half of the year. We expect that it will launch at least a couple of phones in December. 

Also, we have a Oneplus RT launching impending though there is absolutely no information around the Asus 8z launch in India -we hope that this finally gets to see the light of the day. Realme, which had an uncharacteristically quiet month, is expected to get back into action by launching a few phones in the midrange and affordable phones category.

Here is a quick list of phones that might launch in India in December.

1] Asus 8Z

After being pushed back by at least six months in India now, the Asus 8Z was expected to launch in India in the month of October, however, its still not here. The Asus Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip launched globally in May are expected to arrive in India as the Asus 8Z and 8Z Flip. We are in December and hope that the phone may finally launch this month.

4] Moto G200

Moto G200 is one of the most sought-after devices from Motorola in recent times.

The Poco M4 Pro is expected to be a rebadged Redmi Note 11 smartphone and could launch in India this month.

The phone is expected to come with a Mediatek Dimensity 810 processor under the hood and a 5,000mAh battery with fast-charging support to power the device.
