Top 10 Upcoming Smartphones of 2020


– What’s up guys, Saf here on SuperSaf TV and happy new year. 2019 was such an amazing
year for smartphones, and 2020 promises to be even better. So, in this video, I’m
going to be going over the top smartphones that
I’m most looking forward to this year, and what we
can expect from each of them. This list is not going to
be in any particular order. And do also drop the smartphones that you’re most looking forward
to in the comments below. Let’s get straight to it. So, one of the biggest releases
that we’re going to see very soon potentially in February is going to be the new
Samsung Galaxy S device. The S11 or some rumors are
now saying that we might have the S20, which is
definitely quite possible. Samsung may be going with the 20 number because of the year 2020, but anyway, there will be three new
smartphones at least, the successor to the S10E, the
S10, as well as the S10 Plus. And we’ve already seen
lots of leaks and rumors around what we can expect. I’ve covered these in
detail in a previous video. I’ll link that in the cards
and in the description. But essentially we’re looking
at a redesign of the back anyway, with a rectangular camera module. And that’s going to
have up to five cameras. One of these cameras is going to have Samsung’s 108 megapixel sensor, so there’s going to be
lots of possibilities with the cameras on the new
S11, shall we call them for now? But as well as that,
they’re going to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, potentially have up to a
120 hertz refresh rate. This is something that
Samsung didn’t really do for last year, a high refresh rate screen. And we’re going to have
a punch out in the middle like we have on the Note,
but overall, smaller bezels. Very excited for the new S11s. They’re going to be coming
around MWC time next month. Now as well as that, Samsung is likely to
have a new fold device. We’re not sure what this
is going to be called. It might be called the
Fold 2 or something else, but this is going to be quite
different to the current Fold, so it’s not going to be
a tablet-sized device which you can fold to
a size of a smartphone. It’s going to be a smartphone-sized device which you can fold in half, kind of like what we’ve
seen on the Motorola Razr. Now based on the leaks, we see a punch out in
the middle of the screen, and we see a dual camera
setup at the back as well. This is likely to be
coming in much cheaper compared to the current Fold, which was pretty expensive
at around $2,000. And it’s likely to be announced alongside the S11s next month. This year is going to be
very, very exciting foldables. Seeing all of these new form factors, especially if they come down in price, it’s going to be very, very exciting. Now, around March time
we’re also likely to hear about the new Huawei device, the P40 Pro. Now unfortunately, last
year was quite a tough year for Huawei with the ban on
the Google Play services, so that definitely did
have an impact on them. I’m hoping they can sort it
out before the P40 is released. But nevertheless, it looks like
a very promising smartphone, also with a rectangular camera module. So we’re going to have
either four or five cameras. It looks like this is
the camera module design that’s going to be adopted for this year. Potentially a high refresh rate screen with a punch out as well. This also looks like the
year of the punch outs. But some rumors are
saying that we might have up to a 5,500 mAh battery
with up to 50 watts charging, which would be absolutely insane. Huawei really, really big on battery life and performance. Huawei devices have some of the best battery life that I’ve tested. So this is going to be
very, very exciting. I just really hope they
can sort something out with this whole issue of
the Google Play services because I’d love to see
them fully back in the game. And moving on from there, we are going to be seeing the new OnePlus, potentially around May
time, the OnePlus 8 Pro. Now I think you have to
admit that last year, the OnePlus 7 Pro and the 7T Pro, some of the best devices of the year. I think people unanimously agreed on that. Great specs, great display,
and great overall performance. One area that they could be
improved on is the cameras. And hopefully, this year we’ll be seeing that improvement in the cameras. We’re going to have up to four
cameras and for the display, however, it looks like they’re going to be going with a punch out. That’s what the current
leaks and rumors suggest. Now I’m not sure why they may
be going with this punch out instead of the fully bezel-less display, like we’ve got on the OnePlus 7 Pro. It might be something to do
with the popup mechanism. There are lots of moving parts. It might be more difficult
to manufacture that. I’m not too sure. But this is what we’re seeing. And one thing that I
definitely like to see is wireless charging. OnePlus devices great for fast-charging, but they have not had
wireless charging ever. So I’m hoping that they
will have wireless charging in this next version of the OnePlus. Now I think everybody can
agree that 2019 wasn’t a great year for Google when
it comes to the Google Pixel 4. Not a bad device overall,
but quite underwhelming, especially when you put it
up against the competition, which was offering a lot more. Hopefully this year, Google
will be taking that feedback onboard for the Pixel
5 and we’ll be getting things like the ultra-wide camera, a better display overall
with smaller bezels, and concentrating more on
features that we actually want rather than potentially gimmicky features like the hand gestures. But, that’s going to be
further on in the year and we don’t really
have too much in the way of leaks and rumors of it as yet. However, we do have some leaks
around the Google Pixel 4a, and this is something that I’m definitely very excited about. Last year the Pixel 3a, great
device for the price point with one of the best cameras
at that price point as well. And it looks like Google is
going to be repeating this, this year with the Google Pixel 4a. Looks like we’re going to
have a punch out camera. Once again, lots of punch outs this year, but with smaller bezels
and the camera module is going to be square like
we’ve got on the Pixel 4, except it’s only going to
have the single camera. And that’s not too bad considering that it is a lower-priced device. We’re likely to have a 3.5 mm
jack, so thumbs up for that. This is something that we’re
not really likely to see on many devices this year. A physical fingerprint scanner
at the back the device, which I really like, but powered by the
Snapdragon 7 series chipset. So this is something
that’s going to be coming within the next few months,
around that $400 mark. And I’m definitely very excited about it. Now, also around
potentially that price mark, we may be seeing the iPhone SE2. Now this is something that’s been talked about for such a long time, but we’ve not actually
seen anything solid. If we do see something, it would be great around
the 4.7 inch display mark. More of a square boxed-off
design like we had on some of the earlier
iPhones, which in my opinion, looks really, really good. Powered by the A13 Bionic
chip with maybe one, or maybe even two cameras like
we’ve got in the iPhone 11. Once again, coming in at
that more budget-friendly price point, around four to
$500, which would be very, very exciting and I’m
sure Apple would sell loads of these if they did make it. If they do release it,
it would be more towards the beginning of the year, but let’s see. It’s still a bit of a question mark. It’s something that I would
definitely like to see, though. Now that’s the iPhone SE2, but of course, in around September time, we’re going to be seeing the new iPhones. Are they going to be
called the iPhone 11 Ss or are they going to be
called the iPhone 12s? I think they’re going to be
called the iPhone 12s potentially. And that’s because we usually see a bit more of a redesign
every three iterations. So if we currently look at the iPhones, they look very similar
from the front at least, as we have done for the past three years. So it looks like Apple may
be going for a redesign, maybe more of a boxier look, like we were talking
about on the iPhone SE2, which would be great. Maybe smaller bezels. Maybe getting rid of
that notch, full screen, that would be quite awesome. I don’t know if that’s going to happen. Maybe we’re just going
to see a smaller notch. Improved cameras, Apple did a great job with cameras last year,
so it looks like they’re going to be improving on that this year. A14 chipset which is going
to be super, super powerful. And this is a bit of a speculation, but we may be seeing USB Type-C. Apple traditionally, Lightning of course, but last year we did see
more of a change from Apple where they were taking
feedback onboard a lot more. And if you look at the
iPad Pro, USB Type-C. If you look at the MacBook
Pros, again USB Type-C. So it would make things
a lot more consistent if they went with USB
Type-C for the new iPhones. Now ahead of that, things
are a bit of a question mark. We’ve not really seen any
solid leaks or rumors, but of course we are going to be seeing the new Galaxy Note
device, the Galaxy Note 11, or is it going to be
called the Galaxy Note 20? We’re not too sure yet. And I’m hoping this year that it is a little bit more different compared to the Samsung Galaxy S series. This year I think, apart from the S Pen, there wasn’t too many differences. I would like to see maybe a
completely bezel-less design without a punch out,
maybe an under-display, front-facing camera from the Note, that would be quite exciting. And maybe the newer chipset, potentially, the Snapdragon 865 Plus, that’s going to be coming
out later in the year. But as well as that we’re
also going to be getting the Huawei Mate 40 Pro. Again, this is very early stages, so we’ve not really had
many leaks around that. And also, the Asus ROG Phone 3. The Asus ROG Phone 2, my favorite device when
it comes to gaming. I use it so, so much. Whenever I’m gaming,
this is my go-to device. So it will be interesting
to see what Asus does to improve on this for
the Asus ROG Phone 3. OPPO are going to be coming out with some great stuff as well this year. We’ve already heard some
about the OPPO Reno3, but in the way of fast-charging, they’ve gone absolutely crazy. 65 watt fast-charging on
the Reno Ace right now. But also, they’ve been
developing lots of under-display technology with the
front-facing camera as well, so we’re very likely to
see some major advancements in this area as well. OPPO usually very early into the market. On foldables as well, we
are likely to see lots of foldables coming from lots
of different manufacturers. Potentially from OPPO. Huawei we’ve already seen the Mate X, but are we going to see an
improvement on the Mate X? We’re not too sure as yet. And of course there’s going to
be lots more budget devices. The Redmi K30 Pro. Are we going to get the Pocophone 2? One of the Poco execs
did Tweet something out, but then deleted that later on, so let’s see if there’s going to be some more developments on
that side of things as well. Regardless, 2020 is looking like a very, very exciting year for smartphones. Which device are you most
looking forward to in 2020? Definitely let me know
in the comments below. Of course, as soon as
we get more information about lots of these devices,
as soon as those are in-house, we’re going to be doing lots more
coverage here on the channel, as always, SuperSaf style. If you don’t want to miss any of that, then be sure to subscribe (bell ringing) and hit that bell icon. I hope you enjoyed this
