But, if you are looking to keep yourself updated and want to know which of the phones to look out for this year, it will be a good thing to start from these outlined below:

#1. LG G9 ThinQ

According to LG itself, V-series wouldn’t have 5G connectivity but the G-series will still be on 4G. there is not much information on the G9 ThinQ but from what research has revealed, the LG G9 ThinQ design is not that different from the G8 ThinQ. The only upgrade appears to be the camera system at the back.

The display is around 6.6 inches, with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a dual-lens camera. It is also expected to do extremely well in terms of display and audio quality as has been seen in LG G8 ThinQ. This smartphone is likely to be launched at the Mobile World Congress 2020.

#2. OnePlus 8

The design of the OnePlus was leaked faster and now we all know what to expect from the OnePlus 8. It will have a punch-hole front camera for video calls and selfies.

It looks a lot like a Samsung phone, with a punch-hole, triple-camera on the back and a curved display. It is also expected to run on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 hardware. There is also an 8 Pro and maybe an 8 Lite to be launched together with the OnePlus 8. The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are expected to run on a 120Hz display.

When compared to the OnePlus 7 Pro, the OnePlus 8 comes with a few alterations, which include a depth-sensing 3D Time-of-Flight sensor and a smaller display, the display size is expected to be around 6.65 inches.

#3. Huawei P40

With Huawei facing bans in the US which have been affecting its marketing in all other parts of the world aside from China, it is set to launch a new series of the phone: the Huawei P40.

From online sources, it is said that the phone will run with a 64-megapixel main camera, which is a part of a five-camera Leica system. It is working on ways to keep its users connected as it won’t come with Google services.

Furthermore, it is also expected to run on the HiSilicon Kirin 990 Chipset which has been tested on the Huawei Mate 30. With Huawei known to launch its P-series devices after the Mobile World Congress, this device is likely to be launched around March. It is possible that it would be launched alongside the Huawei P40 Pro.

#4. Xiaomi Mi 10

This appears to be one of the best phones coming out this 2020 and it is expected to run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Chipset, a large 64 megapixel Samsung camera and an MIUI 10. It is also expected to run on a 5000mAh non-removable battery and a 6.2 inches display.

Since Xiaomi has confirmed that the Mi 10 will be the first phones launched with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Chipset, it is fair to assume that it would be launched earlier than the estimated Mobile World Congress. It is estimated to be launched around the end of January in China and in February for other parts of the world.

It is also to be expected that the Mi 10 Pro model with a 108-megapixel camera will be launched alongside the Mi 10. The phone is also likely to use the punch-hole rather than the pop-up camera.

#5. Samsung Galaxy S11

The recently upcoming phone from the popular Samsung S-series is likely to borrow some of its features from the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 10. The borrowed features could include 45W fast charging, enhanced and high-quality camera as well as some color options.

It is also said to be coming with a heart-rate sensor and a dedicated Bixby button, but will not come with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. It is said to run on the Qualcomm 865 Chipset in most markets, but users in the UK will get theirs with the latest Exynos Chipset.

It is highly likely to have a more significant camera update-a possibly 108 megapixel camera and a smaller front camera. It is also highly likely to be launched alongside the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus.


As much as you might want to lay your hands on any of the phones highlighted above, you might want to consider your budgets when you want to do that. Most of these phones do not come with a very pocket-friendly price. With the least price among them being around $500 and others costing more, you might want to think twice before getting excited.

But be sure that if you can just get your hands on any of these phones, you’ll be glad you did with all they have promised to offer. On a lighter note though, stay safe and plan your expenses so you would be able to afford what you deserve: a smarter phone.
