Upcoming Smartphones in Nepal


OnePlus 7

OnePlus 7 looks identical to the OnePlus 6T with its notch and flat AMOLED screen. OnePlus 7 comes with the latest Snapdragon 855 processor. This can be combined with 6GB or 8GB  RAM. You don’t have to worry a bit about performance because anyone you ask will tell you that OnePlus 7 and 7 pro are the fastest phone on Planet Earth (in the Android land). The 6GB version ships with 128GB internal storage, the 8GB version comes with 256 GB. Unless you shoot a lot of 4K videos, you should be fine with any one of these storage options.

At the back, OnePlus 7 sports dual camera setup (OnePlus 7 Pro has a triple lens setup). There’s a 48MP f/1.7 lens combined with a 5MP f/2.4 depth sensor. We would have loved to see the ultrawide lens included instead of the depth sensor but this is what we get. At the front, there’s a 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera under the notch. A 3700mAh battery powers this phone that should last you a day of moderate usage. The famed OnePlus’s fast charging technology makes a comeback here too.

OnePlus 7 Specifications

  • Screen Resolution: 1080 x 2340 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio (~402 ppi density)

Pros Cons
Literally the fastest phone Same design as the OnePlus 6T
Better camera system No ultrawide camera sensor

Oppo Reno

Oppo Reno features a Snapdragon 710 SoC. This chip is combined with 6GB/8GB RAM. It’s not the most powerful Smartphone processor out there but it can comfortably handle multitasking between different apps like Instagram, Youtube, Spotify, snapchat, you name it. Playing games won’t be much of a problem either but you won’t get the highest frames per second with this chip.

At the back, there’s a dual camera setup. It’s a combination of a 48MP f/1.7 sensor and a 5MP depth sensor. Like most smartphones that use this large sensor, Oppo Reno uses pixel binning technology to produce 12MP images. The front has a pop-up camera which uses a mechanism that looks like the hinged design of doors and windows.

Oppo Reno Specifications

  • Display: 6.4 inches AMOLED, 101.0 cm2 (~86.8% screen-to-body ratio)
  • Screen Resolution: 1080 x 2340 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio (~402 ppi density)

Nokia 2.2

On the back, we have a 13MP camera that will click decent photos in good lighting conditions. Same is the case with the front 5MP camera. Nokia 2.2 runs Android One which is a variant which means no bloatware. So, navigating the device should be pretty smooth. 3000mAh with Android One and an HD screen means a good battery life on this device. I am guessing it will come below the 15K price category.

Nokia 3.2

Nokia 3.2 is powered by a Snapdragon 429 processor which is an entry-level from Nokia. The processor is paired with 3GB RAM.
