Redmi 10C, HUAWEI nova 9 SE, HONOR X8, and more low profile launches from last week

For a while, we have been posting a compilation of select stories from a week earlier at the beginning of every new week. Initially, we focused on stories, which we considered to be important. But later, we made some changes to this series.

For the unaware, a couple of weeks back, we covered the top leaks. Whereas, last week, we wrote on the best smartphones at MWC 2022. Even this week, we are covering something different.

Today’s article will focus on the launches that happened last week without any fanfare (low-profile launches). We have picked seven such products. Interestingly, all of them are from different brands. Let’s have a look at them one by one in no particular order.
