Best New Phones Coming Soon: Smartphones Worth Waiting For

The pandemic has been something of a plague in the mobile world as well as the physical one, with Mobile World Congress cancelled for the first time since it began in 2006 (and already postponed to late June in 2021), and other events also being nixed. Many mobile manufacturers had to completely rework their launch strategies in the first half of 2020, too.

But Covid has not hit the smartphone market as hard as we feared it might – not only have we seen some exciting releases already this year, but there’s still more to come in 2020 and early 2021. 

We’re seeing super-fast 5G connectivity start to take hold; becoming a standard feature across flagships and appearing with increasing frequency within the mid-range space. We’re now seeing screens that boast 144Hz refresh rates, which is good news for gaming and video, and camera phones continue to pile on the megapixels and extra sensors, unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.

Foldable designs are becoming cheaper and more durable, and battery technology is constantly improving too. We’ve also seen software enhancements too, with the release of Android 11 and iOS 14.

In this feature, we’ve outlined all the major smartphone launches expected to take place in the remainder of 2020 and early 2021, along with an outline of what new features and hardware specifications have been or are likely to be included.

Read on to ensure your next smartphone purchase is not immediately followed by the regret, tying you into a long two-year contract. (Remember that there is a chance you could upgrade your contract early.)

Pro tip: As these new phones edge closer, the outgoing flagships will fall in price and you’ll be able to scoop up some great deals. If you’re not bothered about having the very latest tech, check out our take on the best phones you can buy today.
