If you are thinking of buying a new one smartphone, you may want to wait a little longer, as new models such as Huawei, Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi, Nokia or LG (among others) that will be announced in the next 12 months are coming.
Two of the new trends are 5G connectivity and folding designs. It's also not something you really need to worry about right now, since 5G is not yet available on all phone operators, and foldable phones still seem too futuristic.
Today's best phones combine the best performance with long battery life, high resolution full-screen displays, excellent photographic capabilities (from a triple or even four-lens assembly) and decent sound quality.
At this time, the preferred processor is the Snapdragon 855, while the Snapdragon 865 is expected in the first quarter of 2020. Apple, Huawei and Samsung will continue to develop their own alternatives, but with similar levels of performance.
Android 10 Q and iOS 13 will go on sale in the coming months, so any new phone you buy at the end of 2009 or in 2020 should run one of these operating systems from the start.
The best smartphones in 2020
We have listed the smartphones high-end expected to arrive in 2020 of the largest mobile phone manufacturers in the world.
Although the release dates of some of these phones are not yet confirmed, we have tried to keep things in an approximate order, so you have a good idea of how much time to wait to update.

Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 + & S20 Ultra
The first major launch of smartphones A few weeks later: Samsung will present its new high-end at a special press conference e before the CMM on February 11.
With three versions of the Galaxy S20 (yes, you have read it well, it will not be the Galaxy S11), it is likely that Samsung will also know a new version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold in the Galaxy Z Flip (we talk about this below) .
All eyes will be on that Ultra model, which is new online. If the rumors are true, and usually they are when it comes to Samsung, include a 120Hz screen and a 108Mp sensor as one of the four lenses in its new primary camera that seems to emulate a domain token.
The inclusion of a Snapdragon 865 (or Exynos 990) is exciting not only because it increases performance and efficiency, but because it is sold only with the X55 modem. Ergo, 5G for everyone.
Oppo Find X2 & X2 Pro
Oppo will make an appearance on February 22 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to present the new Find X2 and X2 Pro.
These models may have a 6.5-inch Quad-HD + 120Hz screen and 65W load by cable, with the latter also seen in the Reno Ace of China.
It has been confirmed to work with the Snapdragon 865 processor, which means that it is compatible with 5G. In addition, the new X2 may come with up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
A triple lens camera that includes a 48 MP sensor are also possible options for these new Oppo phones.
Xiaomi Mi 10 & Mi 10 Pro
Landing probably at half the price of the Galaxy S20, and only a couple of weeks later at a CMM press conference on February 23, the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro will arrive.
This could be the launch of a new smartphone 2020 that excites us the most. This next Xiaomi flagship will arrive (supposedly) with the same 108 MP camera as the S20 (and that we have already seen in the My Note 10).
It will also come with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor that will ensure dizzying performance and 5G throughout the range. To this are added 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.
Probably cost around 500 euros, and this is where we understand that you wonder where the trick is. Well, the shortcomings, surely, will be on the screen, without 120 Hz or a Quad-HD resolution.
Xiaomi phones have also been left behind with respect to competition in terms of impermeability, although a rumor suggests that a version of the Mi 10 could finally fit that bill. You can also say goodbye to the unsightly notch on the screen.
Huawei Mate Xs
An updated version of the Huawei Mate X folding (pictured), the Xs now works with a Kirin 990 chip and has an improved hinge and a harder screen.
It has already been announced in China, and CEO Richard Yu has confirmed that it will be shown at the CMM in February. Huawei give a press conference on February 23, so you can expect more information from that day.

Nokia 9.2 PureView
What worries us most about the perspective of a Nokia 9.2 PureView is that the company has never launched a Nokia 9.1 PureView.
Apart from that, a really interesting rumor about Nokia's next flagship – which could be launched during its press conference on February 23 at the MWC, but which is likely to be delayed until summer – is that it could have a car camera. off under the screen.
That means there will be no antistatic notch, no hole cutout.
With Samsung, Xiaomi and Oppo, all known for working on this technology, will Nokia really be the first to reach the goal?
Nokia has many things in its favor, but we cannot consider it a pioneer brand. Therefore, we can expect your 2020 flagship to launch with a high-end processor, that is, 2019, the Snapdragon 855.
Still, we will wait patiently for the arrival of the new Nokia phone and we hope to be pleasantly surprised.
We saw the launch of the Moto G8 Plus last year, without the appearance of any standard Moto G8. The good news is that we still hope that this model can arrive in early 2020, or more specifically, on February 23 at the Barcelona congress.
It is possible that the G8 is somewhat out of place in this article with the best phones that will arrive this year, since as you know, it is not a flagship. However, we hope it is among the best mid-range phones this year.
We do not expect massive changes in the design, but the G8 can see the change to a triple lens camera with the addition of an ultra-wide lens, along with some general improvements such as the Snapdragon 632 processor of the G7.
If you are looking for a flagship, Motorola has recently appeared in the headlines of what might be called the Edge +, but it could also be two devices instead of one.
Apart from some renders published by @evleaks, all we know is that it is a flagship Android phone with a touch pen, and may reach the end of this year.
Sony Xperia 2
The fact that the Sony Xperia 1 It did not go on sale until June is making us doubt in this case, however Sony intends to launch its next flagship, the Xperia 2, along with the mid-range Xperia 20 at the IFA event in September.
All that is known is that the specifications are believed to include 5G and a 4K screen, but reduced from 6.5in to 6.1in. Expect to see a Snapdragon 855 processor, plus 6 GB of RAM and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Honor View 30
The Honor View 30 and the Honor View 30 Pro have already been launched in China, but will not be announced worldwide until the CMM press conference on February 24. So we already know what to expect, but there is still nothing about prices and availability in Spain.
The Honor View 30 range has support for 5G, a flagship level processor, a triple camera configuration and a double hole configuration in the front, but there is one element missing: Google Play. And that can make you rethink your purchase decision completely.
Almost certainly, the launch along with the Honor View 30 at the company's press conference on February 24 of the CMM, the Honor 30 is likely to be a cheap flagship, but that comes with the same problems of not- Google than other Huawei and Honor phones.
Successor to the Honor 20 (pictured), it is likely to be an iterative update, with a gracious performance increase of the new Kirin 990 processor, along with an increase of 6 GB to 8 GB of RAM.
It is likely that there is an infinite screen in the style of Samsung-O, that is, a cut in the upper corner of the camera, but we hope that the main camera is left with only the four objectives.
Waterproofing and wireless charging have not appeared on the line before, but it is likely that its inclusion may raise the price one step beyond the feasible.
LG G9 ThinQ
Another phone that almost certainly will make its appearance in the MWC 2020 in February is the LG G9 ThinQ, although we do not know that there is no official press conference, which probably means that it is not worth getting too excited.
In the past, LG confirmed that all future V series phones will carry 5G, while the G series will keep 4G. That means that the rumor that working with the Snapdragon 865 is incorrect (and coming with something older and slower), or that Qualcomm annulled that decision. We hope it is the last.
Like many of the flagships of 2020, it is believed that the G9 will have a 120 Hz display, but where we really expect LG to impress is in the audio.
LG V60 ThinQ
Another LG phone that may well see a CMM launch in February is the V60 ThinQ, with the V50 (pictured) appearing much earlier in the year than anticipated in 2019.
So the interesting thing about the V series is the double screen design, which was possibly more interesting before any really foldable screen phone went on sale. As before, it is likely to be removable, and possibly with some redesigned hinges.
5G on a Snapdragon 865 chip is more or less a fact. We could also finally see LG integrate the fingerprint sensor to the screen.
Apple iPhone SE 2 (iPhone 9)
A smaller and cheaper iPhone has always been in the cards, but by 2020 it may finally become a reality. Specifically, an update of the iPhone SE 2 It could be announced during a rumor of an Apple event in March.
We have heard that the new iPhone will have a 4.7-inch screen with Touch ID and look a lot like the iPhone 8. Work with Apple's A13 chip, with 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.
It is likely to come in Space Gray, Silver or Red, prices may start from $ 399.
Huawei P40 & P40 Pro
Huawei had a very difficult 2019 due to the conflict with the United States, and has not stopped knocking down Apple to become the global OEM number 2 behind Samsung (Xiaomi is in fourth place), according to Counterpoint Research.
The debate over Google's services and applications seems to have ended abruptly, and the company says to give up Google applications even if the trade ban is lifted.
So we face some fantastic phones that don't work (by default) with the software What we want.
The launch in March of the Huawei P40 will therefore be intriguing, but possibly not for the right reasons – the P40 will be a very attractive phone!
Operate with the company's own Kirin 990 processor, and it is rumored that it currently has (at least in the Pro edition) with a 6.5-inch screen at 120 Hz and a five-lens camera lens with zoom 10x pick
Two self-adapting cameras can be seen around the front and, most interestingly, the graphene battery technology can be used inside.
OnePlus 8, 8 Pro & 8 Lite
The original OnePlus One arrived as a high-end SUV at an unbeatable price, although we have seen that prices have been increasing model after model. That is why good news that in 2020 a cheaper OnePlus 8 Lite joins the standard and Pro model.
Normally they arrive in May, and it is rumored that we can see the new OnePlus tro already in April. (OnePlus 8T and 8T Pro are expected to continue in October 2020.)
The company has already confirmed that the Pro will have a 120Hz screen, and we also expect the 5G to become a standard feature with a change to the Snapdragon 865 with X55 modem.
We also expect to see a 6.7-inch screen, a 4,500mAh battery and a 50W fast charge on the Pro model, and it is said that OnePlus could finally introduce the wireless charge here.
Asus Zenfone 7
Asus manufactures some smartphones incredible so we are glad to know that the next Zenfone 7 will be able to arrive at the end of the year, probably in May.
We hope that the next Zenfone will be slightly more expensive than previous models with the addition of 5G and a Snapdragon 865 processor. It is also rumored that it will eventually bring the convenience of wireless charging to users.
The memory and storage also seem to increase, to 8 GB and 256 GB respectively, but we hope that one thing that does not change is the single rotating camera module that serves as both primary camera and auto-off camera.
Asus ROG Phone 3
It seems that more and more 2020 flagships are moving towards the specifications of true video game phones, with 120Hz displays and fast processors and graphics, but there is still a market for phones for appropriate games like the Asus ROG Phone.
The next iteration, version 3, will probably make its appearance in summer – possibly in July – and is on sale in September.
It is a bit far, so instead of the features that are rumored here is what is on our wish list: a 144 / 240Hz screen; the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 with Adreno 650 GPU, a refined design that is as striking as ever; improved cameras; and some game accessories included.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 & Note 20+
For some time the future of the Samsung Galaxy Note has been threatened, with the S series getting closer and closer in size, power and design, leaving only the S Pen pencil to differentiate between the two. But many think that the ticket is still not dead.
We are likely to see many of the changes introduced with the Galaxy S20 in the Note 20, including the new Dominican-style rear camera with a 108Mp sensor, and the 120Hz screen. The cameras under the glass have also been announced for a Samsung phone that will arrive later this year.
If Samsung decides to continue with its Note series, you can expect the next Galaxy to arrive in early August.
Apple iPhone 12 (End of 2020)
In September we will see the annual update of the Apple iPhone, which in 2019 came in the standard versions (6.1 inches), Pro (5.8 inches) and Pro Max (6.5 inches).
We hope that 2020 will be a year of significant changes in the design of the iPhone, with that large screen that now looks more than a little outdated.
Following the line of the latest Android phones, the iPhone 12 can also come with 5G connectivity and an on-screen fingerprint sensor, and potentially a four-lens rear camera.
This could also be the year Apple finally leaves the Lightning port in favor of USB-C, which may temporarily annoy some Apple fans, but it will be worth it in the long run.
We hope to see an Apple A14 Bionic processor, along with 4GB of RAM and storage options of 64, 256 and 512GB. At least the most expensive models will have OLED screens, and we expect Apple to standardize this across the line.
Huawei Mate 40 & Mate 40 Pro
The message has probably already been transmitted, but it is incredibly unlikely that the Huawei Mate 40, which is expected in September, has Google applications and services. If this doesn't bother you, keep reading.
It is too early for extensive rumors, but it is more or less a fact that the Mate 40 run the next-generation Kirin chip. This is the one that comes after the Kirin 990, and it is said that it is already in test production, apparently using a 5nm manufacturing process.
We would like to see a return of the physical volume buttons on the Pro model, in addition to an improved camera that is more in line with the P series than the older Mate models.
Google Pixel 5 & 5 XL
After the launch of the Pixel 4A in May, the Google flagship line should see an update during its annual hardware conference in early October.
These phones are very interesting because they are among the first to offer the last Android operating system (which in 2020 be Android 11), but also to offer the purest experience of software.
In other aspects, the days have passed when Google's own phones offer the best value, or the best specifications. However, they still sell quite well in the cameras, if that floats your boat.
What we like most about Pixel 5 is a larger capacity battery and a more modern design.
