Available on the HP India website from Rs 65,999.
Samsung Galaxy M33 5G: Green seems to be the colour of the season for smartphones. The M33 5G is the follow up to the M32 5G, and comes with quite a few enhancements, including a chic green colour option. Samsung has packed this device with an Exynos 1280 processor that also powers pricier devices from its Galaxy A Series. This processor brings a choice of 6GB/128GB and 8GB/128GB storage options. Other highlights include a 6.6-inch FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a versatile quad rear cam with a 50MP primary lens.

OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z2: OnePlus clearly believes that there’s still a market for neckband-style wireless headphones. The Z2 is the successor to the popular OnePlus Bullets Wireless. It features enhanced soundstage thanks to a new set of 12.4 mm dynamic drivers; you will find a perceptible improvement in sound quality if you’re stepping up from the first gen OnePlus Bullets Wireless. The Z2 is IP-55 certified for splash and dust resistance and offers 30 hours of battery life. The convenient fast charging feature takes it from 0 to 70 percent in 10 minutes, for 20 hours of playback. Buy it on the OnePlus India website for Rs 1,999.
OPPO F21 Pro: There are two reasons why OPPO’s new F series device is worth checking out. We dig the ultra-slim, flat-edge design on this smartphone that comes in a unique sunset orange colour option finished in what OPPO calls a ‘Fiberglass-Leather’ design. And then there’s the cool microscope lens that’s part of the triple rear cam that allows you to shoot on 15x and 30x modes. The F21 Pro is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 Processor that teams up with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. It features a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate.
