The next month has not yet arrived, and we already know what new items will be presented and how they will be interesting. There are a lot of leaks and rumors, as always, so we bring to your attention - a fresh release of the traditional digest of announcements. In April, there are only three planned presentations, they will be held by major manufacturers HMD Global (Nokia), OPPO and Samsung. Nevertheless, the market for flagship Android smartphones is waiting for an unusual replenishment, so April 2019 will definitely give a vivid impression and will be remembered for a long time.
April 2 Nokia 8.1 Plus
HMD Global will be the first to launch its presentation in April. Its Taiwanese unit announced the official announcement date for the new Nokia X71 smartphone. The event will take place on Tuesday, April 2. Judging by the invitation, the flagship Nokia 9 PureView with a unique system of five lenses will also be presented on this day.
Nokia X71 (outside of China will be released under the name Nokia 8.1 Plus) will be the debut smartphone HMD Global with a resolution of the main camera 48 megapixels and a point cut in the screen. It is expected that the Chinese version will be equipped with three modules with ZEISS optics: in addition to the 48-megapixel sensor, there will also be an ultra-wide-angle sensor with a viewing angle of 120 degrees and a depth sensor. The triple camera is attributed only to Nokia X71, while on the leaked renderings the model has two cameras. Most likely, these images show Nokia 8.1 Plus for the international market.

Little is known about the technical specifications of the Nokia X71 at the moment: the screen diagonal is 6.22 inches and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor.
April 10th. OPPO Reno
OPPO Vice President Shen Yiren has unveiled some of the features of the new flagship Reno and spoke about the brand philosophy of the upcoming line. He once again confirmed the date of the presentation - Sunday, April 10th.
According to Jiren, Reno forms a new and creative product line with a redesigned concept. The launch of the new product is dedicated to the anniversary of the mobile division of OPPO, which has been introducing innovations over the past two decades. It is noted that Reno will be based on Find technologies, but be different from all previous smartphones of the company.
What will surprise OPPO Reno:
- Symmetrical full-screen design without holes.
- The ratio of the screen area to the housing is 93.1%.
- Triple camera with 10x optical zoom.
Specifications OPPO Reno partially disclosed. The flagship will receive a 7-nanometer Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and a battery capacity of 4,065 mAh. It is assumed that along with it, OPPO will release a simplified version with a Snapdragon 710 processor.
April 10th. New Samsung Galaxy A
Samsung has officially announced the launch of its new Galaxy A 2019 series smartphones. The date is the same as OPPO's on Sunday, April 10th. Apparently, a large-scale event is planned, because it will be held simultaneously in three cities: Bangkok (Thailand), Milan (Italy) and São Paulo (Brazil).
Considering that Galaxy A20, Galaxy A30, Galaxy A40, Galaxy A40, Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A70 had already been released earlier in March, Samsung should logically introduce the remaining Galaxy A10, Galaxy A60 and Galaxy A90. And if the Galaxy A10 and Galaxy A60 are not particularly interesting because of the similarity with other models, then the Galaxy A90 promises to be on a par with the Galaxy S10, and in some ways even better than the latter.
Samsung Galaxy A70
We are talking about the technology of a completely frameless screen New Infinity, still not used in Samsung smartphones. In the case of the Galaxy A90, the absence of a drop-shaped or spot cutout can be achieved through the use of a sliding module for the front camera. Unfortunately, the design of the Galaxy A90 is still unknown for certain.
