With any luck, 2021 will be much better than in 2020, but at least there are a lot of exciting smartphones to look forward to.
From high-profile phones like IPhone 13 For the oddity like the LG Rollable, there should be something for everyone. Below, we’ve highlighted ten of the most interesting options that we expect to see before the end of the year.
These are phones that are likely to be great in most cases, and they should at least be interesting, unusual, or innovative.
Samsung Galaxy S21 range
The Samsung Galaxy S21 And its potential siblings – Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra – are perhaps the most awaited Android phone. It shouldn’t be long to wait for them either, as it is rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S21 lineup could be announced Once January 14th.
So what do you expect from the three phones? It almost goes without saying that they have cutting edge power, as rumors indicate that they will be packing a Snapdragon 888 chipset (in the US) or an Exynos 2100 (in most other places) – both of which will likely be among the strongest of the year.
The upgrade might be the most exciting though S Pen support On the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, a move rumored to have brought the phone a lot closer to the Galaxy Note range. We also hear talk of high-end cameras, as the S21 Ultra will likely offer 10x optical zoom.
IPhone 13 range
The iPhone 13 range is likely to be more anticipated than the Samsung Galaxy S21 lineup, but there is more time to wait for these phones, as they will likely not land until September.
There might be some big upgrades for these new models, though High refresh rate monitors, 1 TB of storage, fingerprint scanners on the screen, and a smaller notch. There is also talk of Periscope camera They are added, allowing for a larger optical zoom range.
With phones being so far away at the time of writing, we’re not at all confident about this stuff yet. what about you Can Make sure it will be very powerful, and that Apple will likely offer the same variety of phones as in IPhone 12 Range – means iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The OnePlus 9 range
The OnePlus 9 The range will likely land in March or April, and it offers a slightly cheaper way to get the kind of high-tech we’d expect to see in phones like the Samsung Galaxy S21.
It is possible that there will be OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro and possibly also a brand new model dubbed OnePlus 9E.
As for what to expect, all three phones may use the high-end Snapdragon 888 chipset, and it is possible that they will also have displays with a high refresh rate, and the Pro model is likely to offer at least 120Hz.
We don’t know much about them yet, but the leaks indicate that the standard OnePlus 9 phone will have a 48-megapixel main camera, a 48-megapixel ultra-wide camera, an unknown third lens, in addition to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, while The OnePlus 9 Pro is likely the only one of the three to have IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 It’s not likely to be as mainstream as most phones on this list, but it could be more exciting than most, as foldable phones are likely to be the future and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is likely to be the best. distance.
In addition to having a large foldable screen, the flagship Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 rumors so far indicate that this may happen Samsung S Pen support, And a camera inside the screen, you probably have RGB lighting strip On its hinge.
We haven’t heard much at the time of writing, but we expect more rumors ahead of the release, which could be in June if the leaks are expected to believe – although some sources believe it won’t arrive until the second half of the year.
LG is rollable
The LG Rollable is largely a wild card, not least because we’re not at all sure it exists. But there is some evidence that LG is developing a foldable screen phone, and it may launch at some point in 2021.
Based on And patents, This may be a device that allows you to extend the edges of the left and right screen, but since it is tilted rather than folded, and because the mechanism is compactly hidden inside the phone, it may look like a normal smartphone when the screen is not expanded. to me Another leak It may extend from 6.8 inches to 7.4 inches.
a Brand application The name “LG Rollable” meanwhile includes “touch screen pens,” so as with the Galaxy Z Fold 3, you might be able to get a pen for it.
The LG Rollable looks ambitious and we haven’t heard much about it yet, so there’s a big chance it won’t land in 2021, and if it does it will probably be quite pricey, but it sure looks fun. A rumor with its only release date so far says it could land in the first half of the year.
Range for Oppo Find X3
Oppo isn’t a big name like Samsung or OnePlus, but in recent years it has been making phones that rival the best of them. Oppo Find X3 It could be the next range to do this.
In fact, it might actually be more exciting and innovative than most of the leading big-name companies, like Rumors indicate Oppo Find X3 Pro will have a macro camera that can function a bit like a microscope, with 25x zoom and lighting around the lens.
The phone may also have NFC technology running on both the front and the back of the phone, so you can tap the screen against the payment terminals instead of the background – a small feature perhaps, but we’ve never really seen it before.
On top of that, the specs seem high-quality to speak of 3K resolutionAnd a screen with a high refresh rate, fast charging, large number of camera lenses and more. And you don’t have to wait long, as we expect the Oppo Find X3 range to launch early in the year.
We have been waiting Nokia 10 For a long time, to the point where it has gone through quite a few names since it started a rumor – it was originally thought to be launched as Nokia 9.1, but over time that has changed to Nokia 9.2, 9.3 and now Nokia 10.
It remains to be seen if 2021 will be the year he will reach, especially since we still do not know much about him yet, but rumors indicate Selfie camera inside the screenAnd a sapphire glass screen, stainless steel frame, and an advanced Snapdragon 888 chipset, so this could be a very premium phone.
There is also talk of a completely different camera setup than the pentagonal lens Nokia 9 PureView, Although it is unclear in which ways it will differ.
iPhone SE 3
While the iPhone 13 range is clearly the most anticipated of the upcoming Apple phones, the company may also launch a successor to the phones iPhone SE (2020) In 2021.
We’ve heard very little about iPhone SE 3 So far, there’s every chance we won’t see it until a year later, but if it launches in 2021, it will likely feature the A14 Bionic chipset (the same as the iPhone 12).
There is also talk of an iPhone SE PlusWhich might end up being an iPhone SE 3 in all but the name. This is believed to have a larger 5.5 or 6.1 inch screen, but it retains the general affordability of the iPhone SE range. What’s unclear is whether the iPhone SE 3 will retain the physical home button and large bezels – a design that is increasingly outdated.
Samsung Galaxy Note 21 range
The biggest question about Samsung Galaxy Note 21 The range is whether to launch, with rumors spreading that Samsung is looking to add stylus support to the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 3 so it can turn off the Note range.
At this point, the range of notes days will likely be numbered, but we might still get the Samsung Galaxy Note 21.
There isn’t really any news about what it’s going to present, but as usual for the group, you can expect to use the S Pen and a large screen to get the most out of it and a whole lot of power. If the Samsung Galaxy Note 21 launches, we’ll likely see it in or around August.
Sony Xperia 1 III Compact
As well as expected Sony Xperia 1 III There are rumors that the company may launch the Sony Xperia 1 III Compact, and this phone is what we are most excited about, as there are not many high-end compact phones in those days.
Rumors indicate It may have a 5.5 inch screen And a mid-range top segment – although we hope for a high-end segment. We don’t know much about the Sony Xperia 1 III compact or standard model yet, but with the phones likely to be launched in the first half of the year, we hope to learn more soon.
