The year of 2018 is coming to an end, it’s time to predict the most important phones coming up next year. Most manufacturers have similar schedules over the years, so we can somehow imagine which devices are ever born. In addition, there are still unexpected “unknown” to expose in 2019.
In 2019, the trend of the phone is definitely in the rabbit ears and its variations. At the same time, some smartphones are rumored to appear in the second quater of next year.
Samsung Galaxy S10
Samsung is expected to launch 3 Galaxy S10 models in 2019, all equipped with a new chip, which means faster speeds than the Galaxy S9. According to rumors, the trio includes:
* Galaxy S10 codenamed Beyond 0 “cheap” using 5.8-inch flat screen, side-by-side fingerprint scanner, front and rear single camera.
* Galaxy S10 Beyond 1 uses 6.1 inch curved screen, fingerprint sensor embedded in the screen, single selfie camera, dual rear camera.
* Galaxy S10 + Beyond 2 uses curved screen 6.44 inch, fingerprint sensor embedded in the screen, dual selfie camera, 3-lens rear camera.
Samsung has revealed some details about its first bent-screen smartphone – Samsung Flex – at a developer conference in late 2018. If successful, this will be a revolutionary device, opened a new phone list for the market that was already too boring.
LG G8 ThinQ
We don’t know much about LG G8 ThinQ, only to know that this will be LG’s most advanced phone in the first half of 2019. So far, the best speculation surrounding G8 is patent related to phone model. True borderless with “rabbit ears” containing dual front camera.
Of course, unlicensed patents will become reality on the G8. We also hope G8 will apply the 3-lens camera cluster on the V40 and improve the battery.
Sony Xperia XZ4
Sony pursued a twice-stressful schedule than other brands when it launched a flagship every six months. Therefore, the Sony Xperia XZ4 can be released at the MWC 2019 Mobile World Conference in February. Sony also took several months to sell the phone model introduced in February so it is expected to be available in May or June. .
Xperia XZ4 almost certainly uses the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, improved performance, camera and hopefully it supports the gesture navigation operation that is missing on Sony phones.
