Samsung Galaxy S11
Samsung hits the news all the time with some incredible stuff. The leaked patent images suggest that Samsung Galaxy S11 which is expected to come with 5 cameras out of the box, all cameras will be best in quality. But it is confirmed that S11 is in development and a recent report from SamMobile confirms the colors of S11 variants which are going to be in black, white, blue, and pink.
Also, a well-known tipster Ice Universe noted a few things like Codename for Galaxy S11 is “Picasso” and there will be a Note10 like a camera hole on Galaxy S11 but this time it will be much smaller. In terms of specifications, it will have Android Q and One UI 2.1 out of the box.
In May 2019 Samsung had unveiled its new advanced camera sensor which is capable of capturing 64-megapixel images at the highest pixels resolution of 0.8μm. The camera sensor is also capable of taking HDR and 480FPS videos at 1080p, which really sounds amazing. So there are 100% possibilities that Samsung will use this camera sensor in Galaxy S11 and other upcoming smartphones in 2020 that will be an extreme upgrade from their 12MP primary sensor.
However, some new leaks are suggesting huge camera improvements on this device that it will have massive 8K video recording at 30fps because Samsung is developing a 108-megapixel camera especially for S11. Recently Xiaomi did this experiment with its primary camera which is of 108mp camera and they failed badly, the improvement in performance was a little and hype was very much. So we hope Samsung does not fall into this trap and they come up with something amazing this time.
The battery of S11 is spotted with 5000mAh capacity, that indicated to be a huge improvement. The battery on flagship devices are always a matter of concern, and this upgrade looks to be very good for gamers.
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.
The leaker Ice Universe has also mentioned that Apple is working on an adjustable refresh rate screen on 2020 iPhones which are going to be of 60Hz and 120Hz refresh rate. 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.

Motorola Razr was introduced in 2004. It was wildly successful and eventually has become the world’s best-selling clamshell phone till date.

In terms of cameras, it is expected to have 108MP triple rear cameras better than Note 10’s and at the rear, you will see a pop-up selfie camera out of the box.

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.

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.
