Every upcoming phone available this spring and summer of 2020

0

From the iPhone 12 to the Galaxy Fold 2. 13 phones we still expect to see this spring and summer.

 Despite the current situation the world is dealing with, phone companies still plan to release new phones this starting this month and well into the summer. While some of us might be tightening the belt right about now, manufacturers like Apple and Samsung are at this very moment still building phones and they still want you to buy them.
I guess we’ll see how well that works out. Phones shipments were down 38% in February compared to the same month in 2019, amid coronavirus concerns. I can’t imagine March was any better, but we’ll see. No one really knows how the next few months will play out, but as far as phone releases go, what follow is the current plan.

Samsung Galaxy Fold 2

Samsung is one company betting that foldables are the future of mobile devices. It worked on foldable displays for years before unveiling its Galaxy Fold in February 2019. Samsung’s device, which expands from a phone into a tablet, captured the world’s attention, but it quickly ran into troubles.

The company delayed the launch of the $1,980 Fold by five months from April to September after some reporters found screen defects in their review units. This year, it’s expected to launch round two of the Fold, building on what it learned from last year’s disaster and February’s Galaxy Flip. There aren’t any firm details about when the Fold could launch, but some leakers suggest we’ll see the phone as early as the second quarter.

Huawei P40 Pro series

Huawei’s P40 series consists of three phones — including the standard P40 and the P40 Pro — but it’s the hero — the P40 Pro Plus — that’s got us most excited. It’s the first phone to have a 10x optical zoom lens, it promises to be killer in low light photography and it’s got a practically bezel-free design. This phone is due to go on sale in June, but due to ongoing political difficulties, the phone won’t come to the US.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20

The fate of Samsung’s annual stylus-bearing flagship phone for power users is up in the air. Typically, we’d expect the new Note to arrive in August, guns blazing, to much fanfare and a splashy launch event. This year, who knows. An early rumor suggested that the Note 20  — following Samsung’s new naming convention for the Galaxy S20 phones — would appear as early as July.

Xiaomi Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro 

Xiaomi took the wraps off its latest flagship phones the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro in an online event on Feb. 13 for the Chinese market, which it followed up with an international launch on March 27. Both phones sport a massive 108-megapixel camera sensor, which appeared first on the Mi 10 Note and was co-developed by Samsung.

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro

OnePlus announced that it will launch its latest line of flagship phones on April 14 through a digital event. Likely to be called the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, the phones are confirmed to have 5G connectivity and 120Hz displays. Because of this, we expect the phones to be pricier compared to last year’s. Other rumors include a hole-punch screen for the front-facing camera and a possible budget-minded variant called the OnePlus 8 Lite.

Apple iPhone 12 

The upcoming iPhone 12, 12 Pro and 12 Max (Apple has not confirmed the name of the phones, but we’ll go with that for now) face unknown waters ahead — suppliers in China have already shut down or are operating on limited capacity because of the outbreak, which may impact inventory in September when new iPhones are typically launched. Rumors for the devices are all over the place with some stating the phones will have a radical new design and other leaks point that it will likely look similar to the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro. Some models could have 5G, others might not.
