There is a wide range of phones scheduled to be launched in India next month. While a few smartphone makers have revealed the device and date of launch, others are playing it close to their chest, not ready to divulge the models they will introduce in August yet.
Here's a list of phones that have been confirmed for the India launch in August.
1. Lenovo K5 Note
The first phone that will make its way to India in August is the Lenovo K5 Note. The company has already sent out media invites to its August 1 event in New Delhi. In addition to the invite, the company has also released two teaser videos which hint at some of the features of the upcoming phone. In one of the videos, Lenovo has revealed that the K5 Note will come to India with 4 GB of RAM. This means that the version scheduled for the India launch will have double the amount of RAM than the one launched in China early this year.
The company later reiterated the same in a tweet as well:
The K5 Note will have support for Lenovo's TheaterMax technology, making the phone compatible with the AntVR headset.
Expected to be priced under Rs 15,000, the K5 Note will come with a 5.5-inch full HD display, 13 megapixel rear camera and an 8 megapixel front camera
2. Huawei P9
Huawei's much talked-about P9 smartphone is finally coming to India on August 17. The highlight of the phone is its dual-lens rear camera that has been built in collaboration with Germany's renowned manufacturer Leica. The company hopes that Leica's camera technology on its new flagship phone would set it apart from the competition.
Explaining the P9's photographic capability, Huawei says the dual-lens 12 megapixel camera on the rear of the device unleashes the power of Leica's optical lenses. The company claims, the phone camera captures monochrome and colour images separately and combines them to produce more detailed and brighter colours than rival single-lens cameras.
3. Oppo F1s
Oppo is all set to launch a new phone under its new F series, which, as the company claims, has photography as its central focus. Named the Oppo F1s, the new phone is coming to India on August 3. Teasing the Oppo F1s on Twitter, the company refers to it as a "Selfie Expert". This means that the highlight of the phone is going to be its front camera. The company will reveal more details about the phone, including pricing and availability details, at a launch event on August 3.
4. Meizu MX6
Meizu MX6, which happens to be the first phone in Meizu's MX series to come with a 10-core processor, in all likelihood, is coming to India in August. The company, however, has not yet revealed the exact launch date.

In terms of specifications, the phone will have 4 GB RAM, 5.5-inch display, Android Marshmallow-based Flyme OS, and a 5 megapixel front camera. Besides the MX6, the company also has plans to launch the Meizu M3s to India in the same month.
5. New Moto Phone
After wooing users with its budget Moto G4, Motorola is now planning to bring another affordable phone to India in the month of August. The phone will be priced under Rs 10K. The company will soon announce the launch date and other details about the phone.
While Motorola has not yet revealed as to what it has up its sleeve for the next month, rumours suggest that it will be the Moto G4 Play.
