We need to wait for few more days to know the exact launch date of the device in India. It comes with a 6.4-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) display with no notch or bezels. However, the display uses IPS panel but comes with 92% screen-to-body ratio.

Just like the other Galaxy M smartphones, the Galaxy M40 will also be sold exclusively via Amazon.in in India.
Xiaomi Mi 9T & Mi 9T Pro
Redmi recently launched the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro smartphones with flagship hardware in China. As per the rumors, the same Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro will be launched Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro in the international markets. However, the official teaser image shared by Xiaomi confirms the rumored Mi 9T smartphones to come with a completely different body. It looks more similar to the Mi 9’s plain gradient finish than the Redmi K20’s distinct gradient finish. The teaser image also confirms the device to come with a true bezel-less display with notch or bezels.
Even though the company might have changed the design of the device, we expect the Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro to come with the same specifications as the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro smartphones. While the Redmi 20 came with 8nm Snapdragon 730 Mobile Platform, the Redmi K20 Pro is backed by 7nm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform.

Under the hood, the device features Samsung’s Exynos 9609 octa-core processor.
While the Motorola One Vision came with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, the Motorola P50 might be available in more storage options.

There are also rumors, that the dual rear cameras will be replaced with the triple camera setup. On the front, there is also a 25MP in-screen camera with f/2.0 aperture for selfies. While the Motorola One Vision Android One smartphone runs on stock Android, the Motorola P50 will be coming custom ZUI skin.
