The mobile phone sector is constantly boiling and especially in constant renewal. The new smartphones follow one another and are often very similar, but that does not prevent us from waiting for some models impatiently. If you have not followed all the news, here is a summary of the expectations on the news of 2019.
Last updated in December 2019
The years succeed and resemble each other more or less. Between calendar arranged as music paper and rumors that announce the color of future smartphones with several months in advance, it is not very difficult to draw a calendar of the main outputs. We have therefore painted a portrait of the next few months in order to take stock of the upcoming smartphones that are expected most.
The big launches of the coming months
All these dates are to be taken with tweezers. How did we determine them? Taking into account the rumors as well as the dates of the exits of the previous models. There are also confirmed events.
- Samsung Galaxy Note 10: presentation on August 7
- Apple iPhone XI: September 2019
- Huawei Mate 30: October 2019
- Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL: October 2019
- OnePlus 7T / 7T Pro: second half
- Huawei Mate X: second half of 2019
- Samsung Galaxy Fold: second half of 2019
We do not have the same degree of information on the different devices, so we have grouped in this folder only part of the expected smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10
The Galaxy S10 being behind him, it’s time for Samsung to focus on his future phablet: the Galaxy Note 10. The phone has already been leaked several times. His presentation is scheduled for August 7, 2019.
The most insistent rumor is that the smartphone is available in two models this year: the classic, and the Pro. The Pro model would have a large battery and a larger screen.
Both could benefit from a four-sensor photo setup with a layout similar to that offered by Huawei with the P30 Pro. It also seems that the S Pen will be entitled to great improvements.
Google Pixel 4
After the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a, Google is preparing a new generation of flagship release is scheduled for the end of the year. The announcement of Pixel 4 should take place in early October, as in previous years. The design of the back of the phone is known. Indeed after a first series of leaks, Google has simply decided to confirm the design of his phone by sharing an image on social networks. This also confirms that the phone will integrate, for the first time on a pixel, two cameras on the back.
Apple iPhone XI
Like every year, Apple is preparing a new iPhone. In 2019, we expect a new generation and a new design with the iPhone XI. According to rumors, this phone would have the right to three cameras, instead of two previously, and a new square module reminiscent of the design of Huawei Mate. This smartphone should again be declined in three models: the iPhone XI, the iPhone XI Max and a new iPhone XR.
Huawei Mate 30
Now that Huawei is on track to solve its problems with the United States, the firm can prepare its new range of flagships: the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. According to early rumors, the Mate 30 incorporates a chip Kirin 985 to enhance performance and the Mate 30 Pro would be entitled to a very curved screen.
The presentation is expected for the month of October, if the manufacturer continues the same schedule as for previous generations.
OnePlus 7T and 7 T Pro
The OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro have been formalized. Now, we expect the OnePlus versions 7T and 7 T Pro on which we know absolutely nothing except that these two models are indeed planned by the brand. Both smartphones could enjoy the new Snapdragon 855+.
Huawei Mate X
At MWC 2019, the Chinese manufacturer Huawei has introduced its own foldable smartphone: Huawei Mate X. While the Galaxy Fold suffered its first setbacks, but should be ready very quickly, the vision of the Chinese manufacturer is not yet available.
We were able to pick up the phone and play a little with him, but the final experience is not quite concrete yet. At least we can see that his folding screen is outside his body and not inside as on the Galaxy Fold. There is still a lack of vision on how the software experience will adapt to it.
The foldable smartphone has already been announced for a release in the second half of 2019, to $2200. We look forward to seeing a more successful version now.
Samsung Galaxy Fold
Samsung should have already marketed its Galaxy Fold, but the manufacturer faced a false start when the first testers of the device noticed design problems.
The foldable smartphone, which we have already taken in hand, has been pushed back to an unknown date. The brand promises regularly that the new version is ready soon. The output is still expected for the year 2019.
Collapsible smartphone from Xiaomi
It is not said that it is part of 2019, but the end of the year is always an opportunity for Xiaomi to unveil a new smartphone with innovative design. The Mi Mix range is proof.
The Chinese manufacturer has already shown more than once a prototype foldable smartphone, which folds itself on three points. We do not know any more about it, but still hope it is presented this year. After all, it would be a shame not to be part of the pioneers in 2019, even improve the formula later.
