With the fast pace of Smartphones evolution these days, there is always something waiting in the wings. Here we look at Smartphones that haven’t been launched yet and we shall be updating the list regularly in case of an addition. Before we dive into details, here are some of the anticipated handsets for 2020 and 2021 that are going to take the world by storm because of their amazing specifications and various modifications.
Xiaomi Mi. 11
It’s expected that Xiaomi will be first out of the door to confirm that it’s going to be using the latest Qualcomm hardware – so we’re expecting an announcement during the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit in December 2020. No other details have appeared, but we’ll know something soon enough.
Huawei Mate X2
Huawei’s next-gen folding phone reportedly has the codename Teton and will shift from the design of the original Mate X with the display on the exterior to one with the display on the interior. Not a lot else has been said about this phone, but we might see it showcased in October 2020.
Nokia 7.3 5G
Nokia is looking to add another affordable 5G phone to its selection and it’s rumored that this phone will use with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 5G hardware or MediaTek Dimensity. Nokia has confirmed it’s working on more affordable 5G device and that there will be devices on this new Qualcomm hardware in the future.
Nokia 9.3 PureView
Rumors of a new flagship have been circulating for well over a year, with no sign of the elusive handset. There was the suggestion that Nokia would be holding an event in November to launch new devices however, and the Nokia 9.3 PureView might be on the list, but it’s been some time since we’ve seen any leaks – and more recently, a leaked doc has hinted at a Nokia 10. We now suspect there will be a February update.
Samsung Galaxy S21
The Samsung Galaxy S21 could take Samsung in a slightly cheaper direction with an interested integrated camera housing in the top corner of the rear. A 6.2-inch flat display could adorn the S21 and we’re assuming there will be a larger S21+ launched alongside. Rumors are suggesting a January of February 2021 launch.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra
Samsung’s next-gen of smartphones are already seeing numerous leaks. We’re expecting a February 2021 launch, we’re expecting the Ultra to keep the big battery and big megapixel cameras and we’re expecting next-gen 5nm processors from Exynos. A design with huge rear camera housing as recently leaked, showing off a fresh new design.
LG future flagship
LG is said to be preparing a future flagship phone launch, which is expect in Q1 2021. Little has been said about what to expect, but the general feeling is that it’s going to be based on the V series of devices.
OnePlus 9, 9 Pro and 9E
OnePlus has been fairly regular in launching its devices and spring 2021 would be when we’d expect to see the OnePlus 9. OnePlus 9, 9 Pro and perhaps a more affordable model called the OnePlus 9E. Renders have surfaced, making the OnePlus 9 Pro looks a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.
LG Velvet 2
It’s thought that LG will be launching an update the Velvet – the Velvet 2. It’s expected around March 2021 on updated Snapdragon 700 series hardware – probably to be announced at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit. Little else is known about the phone, but we expect it to be an incremental update.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 2/3
Samsung is focusing its efforts on foldable phones and we’re expecting it see a new Flip in 2021. So far the only information we’ve heard is that it’s expected to launch separately to the Galaxy S update, so we think it will appear in June 2021. The display is said to get an update to 120Hz for smoother scrolling.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold E
There have been several threads of a rumour that suggest Samsung is looking at more affordable folding phones – and the Galaxy Z Fold E is what we might get. There’s talk of a Fold model with a smaller external display like the Z Flip, designed to sell much cheaper – with $1100 suggested. Could this be a cheaper Fold model for 2021?
