From Motorola Razr, Galaxy S11 to iPhone SE 2 / iPhone 9, iPhone 12 ... here are the most awaited smartphones this year.
- There Will Be Two iPhone 12 Models With 6GB Of RAM
- Mobile Battery Price In India: Redmi Note 4, iPhone 5s, Galaxy J2, And More
- New Microsoft Edge Launched Today, Marking The Ultimate Death Of Internet Explorer
2019 saw a series of attractive smartphones coming out like the iPhone 11 Pro, Pixel 4, OnePus 7T, and Pixel 3a. When Samsung finally started to sell the Galaxy Fold, all eyes were on Motorola and the Razr folding smartphone. Razr expected to sell its first foldable device on 6th January but it was delayed because the demand for the phone was too high.
In addition, rumors about upcoming Samsung and Apple flagships have also begun to surface. The Galaxy S11 is expected to have a major camera upgrade, while the iPhone 12 could be the first iPhone to support 5G.
Huawei Mate X
Huawei joins the foldable smartphone race with the Huawei Mate X at MWC 2019. When unfolded, the Mate X has an 8-inch screen that occupies almost the entire front. It uses a 4-lens camera cluster and supports 5G connectivity. The device was sold in China in November 2019 but Huawei was quite tight-lipped about the device's sales. It is not clear when the new Mate X will be sold overseas.
After nearly a year of leaks and rumors, Motorola Razr was finally launched on November 13, 2019, using a 6.2-inch folding OLED screen. The device costs $ 1,500 (around Rs. 1,07,600), which is more expensive than the iPhone 11 Pro or Galaxy Note 10 Plus but cheaper than the Galaxy Fold. The device actually has 2 displays, one inside, one outside, equipped with a fingerprint sensor, two rear cameras and a 5MP camera inside the main screen. Hopefully, Motorola will release the handset soon and reveals the Motorola Razr launch date in India.
Motorola Razr is cheaper than its competitors because it uses a mid-range 2018 chipset, which is the Snapdragon 710. However, many people are not really happy with the price of the Motorola Razr and one of the key reasons is its less-powerful Snapdragon 710, compared to the Galaxy Fold with Snapdragon 855 SoC and Huawei Mate X with Kirin 980 SoC. Moreover, the handset’s battery capacity is also quite low, which is only 2,510mAh.
According to rumors, Samsung will focus on upgrading the Galaxy S11's camera. Specifically, it will equip the 108MP camera for its flagships in early 2020 with support for 5x optical zoom. It can even integrate a spectrometer sensor on the upcoming Galaxy S11 smartphones. The spectrometer sensor uses an infrared beam to analyse the energy waves of an object and determine its chemical composition.
iPhone SE 2 / iPhone 9
You don't have to wait until autumn to catch a new iPhone. Rumors suggest that Apple will launch the iPhone SE 2 in February 2020. The iPhone SE 2 uses a 4.8-inch screen, simulating iPhone 8 design but more powerful thanks to the A13 Bionic chipset. Another interesting piece of information regarding the iPhone SE 2 is that the handset was previously tipped to arrive with the name iPhone 9 instead of iPhone SE 2.
Galaxy Fold 2
Despite many difficulties with Galaxy Fold, the Korean electronics company still did not give up. Rumor has it that Samsung is developing the Galaxy Fold 2 with a clamshell design, quite similar to the Motorola Razr. The device will use two rear cameras and one selfie camera. In addition, the company is testing a new type of protective glass that is much thinner than Gorilla Glass for increased durability and flexibility. It is also cheaper, under $ 1,000 (around Rs. 71,800) to reach more users.
The iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max were released a few months ago but there have already been rumors about the iPhone 12. According to Ben Geskin, who specializes in smartphone leaks and rumors, one of the iPhone 12 models will have a free-notch design and a TrueDepth camera will be embedded directly into the top of the display. Besides, the iPhone 12 will also support 5G connectivity.
Microsoft Surface Duo
Microsoft is reportedly making smartphones, which are dual-screen devices, powered by Android. The company already introduced the Surface Duo using a 5.6-inch screen with a hinge in the middle. It is not a real foldable screen smartphone but can rotate 360 degrees, allowing users to use it in many different designs. Like other flagships, the device uses Snapdragon 855 SoC for processing power. There is still time for Microsoft to perfect the device before it goes on sale alongside the Surface Neo tablet.
So which of these smartphones are you waiting for? There are also a lot of interesting smartphones that are planned to launch this year in the mid-range and budget segments as well.
