Tech savvy people often dub October as ‘Techtober’ as this is the month when all the tech giants introduce their year-end offerings. Not to mention, October seems to be geared up for quite a few exciting releases. Let's take a look at the coming soon Smartphones in Bangladesh in October 2022.
Best Upcoming Smartphones in October 2022
realme 10 is tipped for an October 27 launch from unofficial sources. The phone will be a successor to the brand’s highly popular model realme 9.
The device is tipped to come with a MediaTek G99 processor with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of primary storage. In addition to that, realme 9 will feature an AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 50 MP primary sensor. These are all unofficial speculations based on a few notable leakers.
Just like its predecessor, the realme 10 is touted to be a performance-oriented device at a budget price. The device is tipped to be under 20,000 Rs which roughly translates to 24,828 BDT (1 INR = 1.24 BDT).
iPhone 14 Plus
Even though Apple introduced the iPhone 14 series back on 7th September, the release of the iPhone 14 Plus was delayed till 7th October. The phone will first be available on a pre-order basis.
This year, the 14 Plus is replacing the standard mini that was last seen on the iPhone 13. Given the popularity of large phones, replacing the mini with a large 6.7-inch display device seemed like a logical choice.
The internals of the iPhone 14 Plus is the same as the standard iPhone 14. The only difference is the large display and a larger battery.
The preorder price of the device is slated at 899 USD which roughly amounts to 90,695 BDT (1 USD = 100.88 BDT). But the price will grossly differ once it becomes available in Bangladesh.
Google Pixel 7/7Pro
In 2021, Google’s Pixel 6 series took a huge jump from the moderate mid-range offerings. It was a proper flagship competitor with a complete design overhaul. In 2022, Google is planning again on a full-on flagship lineup with the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. The devices will be unveiled globally on 6th October.
Spec-wise, there are only a few minor differences from the previous generation. Perhaps the most worrying thing here is that Pixel is using the same camera setup from last year with the primary sensor being a 50 MP Samsung GN1 lens.
The most notable change will be seen in the back visor as it has been replaced with an aluminum one. On top of that, Google will unveil the second generation of their in-home tensor processor.
Not much is known about the price of the devices. Going by last year, the prices should be around 699 USD (BDT 71073) for the standard 7 and 899 USD (BDT 91409) for the 7 Pro (1 USD = 100.88 BDT).
OnePlus Nord 3
The Nord series from OnePlus was their first hand at the mid-range smartphone market. Before that, the company exclusively focused on making flagship devices at an affordable budget.
The same idea has trickled into their midrange offerings as well.
Over the years, the Nord series has become synonymous with value-for-money performance. The Nord 3 is slated to hit the market in late October.
The device is expected to boast MediaTek Dimensity 8100 processor along with a 120 Hz display. Going by the previous variant, we are expecting a triple camera setup with a 50 MP main sensor.
The expected price of the device is around 27,999 INR or 34,819 BDT (1 RS= BDT 1.24).
Xiaomi 12 Lite
For quite some time now, Xiaomi has been releasing its new lineup in October. The 11 series launched in mid-October last year and given the trend, the Xiaomi 12 Lite is expected to launch sometime soon.
Xiaomi typically launches the Lite model first, followed by the standard and Pro models. This year, the Xiaomi 12 Lite is expected to boast Snapdragon 778G processor along with a 6.55-inch AMOLED display.
On the camera front, we might see a 108 MP main sensor which will be a welcomed addition. The device is also slated to come with 67W fast charging.
The price of the device is expected to be around 25,000 Rs or 31,090 BDT (1 RS= BDT 1.24) by the current conversion rate.
iQOO 10 Pro
Being a sub-brand of Vivo, iQOO has made a name for itself at the top of the market with its flagship offering. The company rightly took OnePlus’s position as the flagship killer, offering flagship specs at a much more affordable price.
iQOO 10 Pro is expected to launch sometime in the last week of October. The device comes powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, a 6.78 inch 120 Hz display, and a 50 MP main sensor. The device is also rumored to have 200W fast charging, the first of its kind in mobile devices. It’ll be interesting to see how this changes the charging dynamics of the device and other flagships out there.
The device is expected to be priced around 52,990 Rs or 65,898 BDT (1 RS= BDT 1.24).
The Oppo A series has been the perfect mid-range camera phone for many. It brings a unique blend of performance and camera capabilities in mid-range spec and pricing.
This year, the Oppo A77s are expected to release in late October or early November as Oppo hasn’t confirmed the release date yet.
The device will boast an Helio G35 processor from MediaTek. Additional features include a 33W fast charging option, a dual camera setup with a 50 MP primary sensor, and a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel.
The price of the device is expected to be around 20,000 Rs or 24,872 BDT (1 RS= BDT 1.24).
Xiaomi POCO X4 GT
There has been a buzz around Poco launching the X4 GT sometime in late October globally. Previously the GT series launched in early August. So we are right around the corner for the next GT edition X4 from Poco. This seems highly likely as the device has already been launched in China.
In addition to the sleek design, the device is expected to be powered by Dimensity 8100. This time, Poco is expected to bump up the refresh rate up to 144 Hz which is still not a common scene even for proper flagships.
The triple camera sensor will be headed by a 64 MP primary shooter. The battery of the X4 GT is expected to be around 5000 mAh with 67W fast charging included.
The price of the device is expected to be around 25,000 Rs or 31,090 BDT (1 RS= BDT 1.24).
The V25e is Vivo’s budget variant of their highly popular V25 and V25 Pro lineup. The success of both devices has prompted Vivo to launch the V25e as early as this October.
The device will be powered by an Helio G99 processor with an 8/256 GB memory configuration onboard. Beyond that, the V25e will have a 6.44-inch IPS LCD panel with a 90 Hz refresh rate. However, the best thing about the display is that it will be able to go up to 1300 nits in HBM.
The main camera of the device is slated to be a 64 MP one along with a 32 MP front camera. The device will support up to 44W fast charging for the 4500 mAh battery.
The price of the V25e is expected to be around 22,000 Rs or 27,359 BDT (1 RS= BDT 1.24) by the current conversion rate.
Xiaomi 12T Pro
Finishing off the list for October with the Xiaomi 12T Pro, the proper year-end flagship from Xiaomi. Just like its Lite variant, the 12T Pro is expected to launch right at the end of October or early November of this year.
The 12T Pro will feature quite a few breakthroughs in the camera department as Xiaomi is gearing up to introduce a 200 MP sensor to the device. Additionally, the device will be powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.
Not much else is known about the device as everything seems to be shrouded by unconfirmed leaks. But the device is expected to follow the pricing strategy of last year and should launch at 60,000 Rs or 74,615 BDT (1 RS= BDT 1.24).
2022 has been a slow year when it comes to smartphones. This has been the case for several years now as innovation and the next big leap in the smartphone industry seem to have taken a back seat. Still, there have been some great releases this year, like Samsung Z Fold 4, S22 series, OnePlus 10 Pro, and the recently launched iPhone 14 lineup. These are great devices for their respective target groups.
But 2022 is still not over and there are still a few devices lined up for October and beyond release dates. October is generally a slow month after the release of the iPhone lineup in September. We only have the Pixel lineup for 2022 lined up for an October event. Most of the devices listed in this article will have October and beyond launch dates. It could be in the last quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2023.
So far, we have highlighted the top 10 upcoming phones in Bangladesh in October 2022. From proper flagships to high-value mid-range devices, the end-of-the-year haul will bring something for everyone.
