Samsung Galaxy Note20
Samsung hits the news all the time with some incredible stuff. The leaked patent images suggest that Samsung Galaxy Note11 or 20 could come with an ultra-curved waterfall screen out of the box. There is also a so-called render of the Galaxy Note 11 aka Note 20 is in circulation that you can look above, it is also said to be the mixture of Galaxy S20 and Note10.
A user on the Chinese Social site Webio has posted an image of the smartphone’s case and mentioned it as the case of Note20. The leaked image shows a case with volume adjust and power buttons on one side, which is somehow confirming the theory of ultra-curved waterfall screen. In terms of specifications, it will have Android 11 or the latest variant running on.
According to news, the upcoming smartphone from Samsung will be packed with the latest massive powerful Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 processor. It will be offered in 8GB RAM and /128/256, storage also with a 12GB/512GB variant. The device will also be supported by the eSIM feature, which is also present in S20 series of smartphones.
The launch date of the smartphone is expected in August and September 2020, it is not so unknown each year we see an iPhone competitor from Samsung near this date.
Apple iPhone XII
We all know that there was a lukewarm response for the LCD screen of the latest iPhone XR. We may see a total shift to OLED screens on iPhone XII. Needless to say that next-generation iPhones would be surely equipped with the 5G network support. Apart from that, we can expect some really cool things that are based on AI. Apple is working on the new series of chips which they are calling new-gen bionic chips. These chips are specially meant to accelerate AI-powered processes. There is a great possibility that Apple may come up with camera features that run based on powerful Artificial Intelligence programs. We may see different modes and also a personalized camera app which studies the aesthetic preferences of the user and adjusts the camera settings.
A report on Twitter also suggests that the iPhones coming in 2020 are going to have wider antenna lines which is >1mm to ensure 5G connectivity in the device. It is also said that Apple is testing a new Face ID and a new camera setup that fits into the top bezel of the device on upcoming iPhones. Which is clearly indicating that Apple is working on a new notch-less device for 2020.

According to MacRumours they have seen a secret report which says that Apple will be bringing a significant design change into their 2020 iPhones and it will come with a metal frame structure.
Upcoming iPhone 12 is claimed to be a notch-less device whereas the borders of the device will be used as a fingerprint scanner. But it makes confusion because iPhone SE2 is also rumored with the same design and technology. However, the small iPhone is just an imagination there is no solid proof about its happening. It looks clear that the upcoming iPhone from the company is going to be a unique piece of design from every aspect.
OnePlus 8 and 8T
It is expected to arrive in the late summers of 2020, the devices will be called as successors of OnePlus 7 and 7T. OnePlus is a well-known value for money smartphone manufacture in the world, their sales are increasing every day.

Motorola is continuously working to be in the competition of futuristic smartphones. Where companies like Xiaomi, OnePlus, and others are impressing with their latest innovations then how Motorola can be left behind.

However, for now, nothing is officially clear about the device, the market is full of rumors, but as we enter in 2020 the scenario will start clearing.

It is also said that the smartphone will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Samsung Galaxy F 2
We may see quite a number of good foldable smartphones in 2020. It’s not just Motorola, even the South Koren tech giant Samsung is geared up with its second foldable phone called Galaxy Fold 2. Samsung has already introduced its 2019 variant of this device and now they are gearing up for its next-generation device. Google is developing an efficient Android OS specially meant for the foldable interfaces which are the core reason for this sudden trend of foldable devices. Samsung Galaxy F2 is rumored to have a 6000 mAh battery capacity. Galaxy 11 with complete bezel-less display and Galaxy F2 with the foldable interface, 2020 is going to be a truly grand year for upcoming Samsung phones.
It will be a successor to the Samsung Galaxy Fold which hasn’t done well in the market like, many reports said that the display breaks while opening a closing, also there were few other problems with this device.
Recently a meeting was held at CES where the name of the smartphone got leaked as Galaxy Bloom, it sounds that the next galaxy will be going to have a very unique and better name than the current one.

You can look into patented images which indicates that the upcoming smartphone is going to be a foldable one. While there are also few real to life fan-made renders that show how exactly this device is going to be. But nothing much is officially confirmed, everything is now going on the bases of rumors.
For the specifications, we can expect that Apple will use its top-notch hardware to make it look beautiful from inside and outside. The pricing is going to be really high this time as Samsung’s foldable device comes with a $2k approx price tag, so we can expect iPhone X Fold to be similarly priced.
Foldable technology is quite new in the market, so still, there are very few resources to get, that’s why it is costly.
Microsoft Andromeda a Foldable phone
Microsoft is one of the world’s biggest tech companies now looking to try its hands again in the smartphone industry. After making Nokia from hero to zero, and even Nokia is still not able to make a proper comeback.
But now there are some strong rumors about Microsoft that it will back with its so-called foldable device codenamed Andromeda from the next year 2020.

Google is about to launch its Pixel 4 series smartphones this year, everything about the device is almost clear the renders of the phone is confirmed. But the next year 2020 is going to be very exciting for smartphone lovers because we will be witnessing lots of futuristic devices including Google Pixel 5. You know that technology keeps on upgrading each year and we saw the futuristic smartphones each year. Pixel 5 is going to be a very awesome device from the company why not? because Android is owned by Google and they always introduce some exclusive out of the box features for their devices.
The interesting part here is all the Google devices are very much optimized you will not see more RAM or battery, but they optimize each part of the smartphone very well. So that even if the specs on paper looks low but works better than any other high-end smartphone.
In terms of specs, there is no info in the market about Pixel 5 but we might witness a foldable device next year from the company and a regular variant. Because till quarter 3rd or 4th of 2020, these types of smartphone’s demand will be high.
iPhone SE 2 to aka iPhone 9
Apple’s compact iPhone model is in rumors for too long and now a fresh report claims that it will be going to launch as iPhone 9 instead of previously rumored iPhone SE 2. The iPhone SE 2 aka iPhone 9 was in the reports back in 2017 where it claimed to be made in India device, after that we had witnessed a lot of fancy renders of the so-called device. But a shocking report from the Forbes revealed about the cancellations of the device.

To be true it sounds so surprising and unbelievable so you don’t need to be happy until it becomes a reality. Unlike others, Apple leaks are not trusted all the time. So we should wait for it to become a reality.
Moto Razr V4 (Expected in 2021)
Motorola Razr was introduced in 2004. It was wildly successful and eventually has become the world’s best-selling clamshell phone to date. Over 130 million units were sold in the span of 4 years, thanks to the thin profile and striking appearance. But after waiting for so long they have released a fresh and futuristic version of its old smartphone now named Motorola Razr in 2020, shockingly it over $1500, which is even more expensive than the latest iPhone in the market.
However, foldable technology is very expensive these days so the price is justified somewhere around.
The flexible and foldable OLED-based design facilitates the clamshell approach. As per the images above, there is a secondary display at the center and a single-lens camera on the upper half of the backside.
But what will be the next device in 2021? of course, it will an upgrade to the current device and will be very similarly named. The upcoming Razr is expected to be a more reliable and tough device out of the box. Also, we will see the latest processor and the best quality display resolution on it.
