Nokia’s XR20 midranger surfaced in an image, showing the rugged back plate of the phone, dipped in water. The XR20 is coming on July 27 with a 6.67-inch HD+ LCD, 5,000mAh battery and Snapdragon 480 5G chipset.

Xiaomi became the second-largest smartphone vendor in the world in the second quarter of the year, using an 80% growth to outpace Apple for second place. In a related story, the Redmi Note 10T is coming to India on July 20, starting at INR 15,000.

The OnePlus Nord 2 5G surfaced in renders. It will be made official on July 22 with a 6.43-inch 90Hz Super AMOLED, a 50MP Sony IMX766 main camera, Dimensity 1200 5G chipset and 4,500mAh battery.
