January was probably the most buzzing month for smartphone launches.⭐ The OnePlus 12 series was one of the key launches. However, after the recent OnePlus goof up of claiming UFS 4.0 instead of the actual UFS 3.1 in the OnePlus 12R, many users have expressed their disappointment. Interestingly, the recent report from IDC also points out a stagnant growth for the smartphone market in India in 2024. Nevertheless, here are the upcoming smartphones in March 2024 in India.✅

Oppo F25: Upcoming Smartphone Launch in India

Moving on to our list of the new and upcoming smartphones in India, we have got one from the Chinese brand, Oppo. The Oppo F25 in India is releasing by the name of Oppo 11F in Malaysia on February 25th, 2024. Hence, a sooner expected launch for India awaits fans, February 29th to be precise. The Oppo F Series is known for its mid to lower midrange smartphones focused on performance as compared to the Oppo A series which is more budget range.

In the upcoming Oppo smartphone F25 Series, we can expect to see two models, the Oppo F25 5G and the Oppo F25 Pro 5G. The Oppo F25 is expected to be powered by MediaTek Dimensity 7050 chip and the Oppo F25 Pro is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 750G chipset.

MediaTek Dimensity 7050 vs Snapdragon 750G 🤔
If the rumours become true then clearly, the Oppo F25 Pro is built more for gaming performance, thanks to its Snapdragon G series processor & higher GPU clock speed. On the other hand, the Oppo F25 is going to be better for multitasking. Thanks to its Mediatek Dimensity 7050 processor’s high memory & CPU performance. However, do note that the Snapdragon 750G chipset was launched in 2020 as compared to the Mediatek Dimensity 7050 (a rebranded version of Dimensity 1080) in 2022.

Oppo F25 launch date in India is expected to be March 5th though it's not confirmed. However given the phone is launching in Malaysia on Feb 25th, we can expect a launch for India most likely by March 5th.

Oppo launched the predecessor Oppo F23 in May last year so the Oppo F25 launch date might be dragged to May as well which is why it is one of the expected upcoming smartphone launches in our list and not a confirmed one.

Oppo F25 competitors include phones like Realme 11 Pro Plus, Oppo Reno 11, etc. Interestingly, the Lava Agni 2 5G which comes under 20K also boasts the same chipset as the Oppo F25 at around 30K to 35K approx.

The Oppo F25 Pro in India is also set to launch on the same day as the Oppo F25, which is on 29th February. Being an upcoming smartphone launch, there are of course not many details about this phone.

The base variant would host a 128GB storage and an 8GB RAM. In contrast to the frequent releases seen from smartphone giants like Samsung, Redmi, and OnePlus, Oppo has maintained a notably quieter presence in the market. After the Oppo F23 last year, the Oppo F25 is probably the only new phone we have heard of from the brand in recent times. So, fans have some expectations from the upcoming smartphone Oppo F25 launch in India.

Realme 12 Plus 5G: New Smartphone Launching in March

Realme 12 Plus 5G: New Smartphone Launching in March

Realme’s upcoming smartphone launch in India is going to happen on March 6th, 2024. The newly launching phone is currently live on Realme’s official website landing page. As per the page, viewers can complete the given task to win a chance for a Realme Big Box lottery prize worth Rs.47,000. Speaking about the phone, the brand calls it “the ultimate value mid-ranger” and reports suggest that it is going to be the first phone in the price segment to boast an OIS camera with Sony LYT600 sensor. Additionally, the phone is going to boast an IP54 rating & a premium leather back panel.

Rumours have it that the upcoming Realme phone will be powered by a Mediatek Dimensity 7050 chipset. Yep, the same 6-nm processor that we saw in the (rumoured) upcoming Oppo F25 5G above. In terms of display, users can expect Realme 12 Plus 5G to have an AMOLED 6.7 inches FHD+ screen. Whether it would be a curved display or not is something only time will tell. Realme 12 Pro 5G does have a curved display by the way so perhaps we could expect the same from Realme 12+ 5G. Currently, Lava Agni 2 is probably one of the rare smartphones with curved displays under 20K price.

Vivo V30 Pro Upcoming Vivo smartphone launching in India

Vivo V30 Pro Upcoming Vivo smartphone launching in India

Vivo which is considered to be the 2nd top smartphone brand in India after Samsung might launch its Vivo V29 series in March. The Vivo V Series brings upper-midrange smartphones and is known for its camera specs especially.

The Vivo V29 series, the predecessor of Vivo V30 Pro was launched in the month of October last year. The smartphones didn’t seem to gain as much traction. Thanks to the phones being overpriced. For example, the Vivo V29e comes with Snapdragon 695 at Rs.27,0000 which doesn’t make sense. The Vivo V29 Pro comes with Mediatek Dimensity 8200 at a price tag of Rs.40,000 while the iQOO Neo 7 brings you the same chipset at 26K. However, on the other hand, the Vivo V29 Pro is one of the very few phones to offer a 4K recording at 60FPS and a 2X telephoto lens under 40K.

So, let’s see what the Vivo V30 Pro is going to look like. The brand claims Vivo V30 Pro brings ZEISS pro portraits and advanced ZEISS lenses. The upcoming smartphone will also bring 1X zoom and 2X zoom telephoto camera. From the Vivo V30 Pro Thailand launch images, it seems like the aura light is going to get bigger. Notably, Vivo also claims the phone to be the thinnest Vivo smartphone that comes with a 5000mAh battery.

Vivo V30 Pro Launch Date in India, Competitors & more

The Vivo V30 series is launching in Thailand on February 28th. In India, we can expect the Vivo V30 Pro to launch in March. The exact launch date cannot be said yet. The possible competitors of the Vivo V30 Pro can be the OnePlus 12R series depending on the price point Vivo V30 Pro gets launched. In Thailand, reports suggest that the upcoming Vivo phone is launching at a price of Rs.43,000 (฿19,000) approx. In India, we can expect it to be priced around Rs.47,000 to Rs.55,000
