Sony Xperia XZ3
Sony is spoiling people a lot. Just a few months after the release of the Sony Xperia XZ2, it looks like the company will be announcing the follow-up, Sony Xperia XZ3. In fact, the Japanese company has already posted a teaser confirming that the next Xperia will be coming in a big pre-IFA event on Thursday, August 30. So far, the only thing that we know about it is the 4GB RAM and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processing chips.
LG V40 ThinQ
It is becoming apparent that a new LG phone will be introduced during the IFA 2018. As awkward the name of the LG V40 ThinQ is, the new smartphone will have a larger body and a display notch.
Huawei Mate 20 phones
With the success of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the Chinese manufacturer will showcase the next generation Huawei Mate 20 smartphones in one of the IFA trade shows. The devices will be called the Huawei Mate 20, Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the Huawei Mate 20 Lite.
Unnamed Honor device
Honor may not be as known as its sister brand Huawei but it has already proven to have great products through Honor 9 Lite and Honor View 10. It is verified to showcase a still-unnamed device in the IFA 2018, which the company already calls as “crazy fun” and “crazy smart.” Color us intrigued.
HMD Global has been showering the world with new Nokia phones in the past months. The Nokia 9 is much anticipated because of its Penta-lens back camera arrangement, an in-display fingerprint reader and a strong Snapdragon 845 chip.
ZTE Axon 9
ZTE is set to break months of silence with the ZTE Axon 9. If rumors are to be believed, it will be a premium device that will have 5G connectivity.
BlackBerry Key2 LE
The BlackBerry Key2 LE will serve as the budget-friendly and less powerful version of the company’s latest release. Apart from that, not much has been announced.
