Even though Samsung and Sony have already unveiled their flagship smartphones for this year, an impressive lineup are still coming later this year. So far, the best smartphones are the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. Let us take a quick look at the best, most anticipated smartphones coming out this year, which are listed in no particular order. Some are already set to release in the next few weeks, and others will launch during holiday season.

Three new iPhones from Apple are expected to be introduced this September looking similar to the current iPhone X with a bezel-less design, a display notch, and Face ID technology support. The 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus is considered the best and most expensive compared to the 5.8-inch iPhone X (2018) and the cheaper 6.1-inch LCD iPhone.

According to ValueWalk, Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang mentioned to the investors this week that the iPhone X Plus could support an “iPen” stylus, which will likely be sold separately. In terms of specification, the device will come running iOS 12 software and the next-generation A12 processor, which is known to be 20% faster and 40% more energy efficient than A11 Bionic. The device will be paired with 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and a dual-SIM variant.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note 9 from the Korean company Samsung was trademarked last month in Columbia and then reportedly codenamed “Crown.” It is rumored to feature a 6.3-inch bezel-less Super AMOLED Infinity screen with curved edges looking similar to the current Galaxy S9 Plus. The device will have the Bixby button, 3.5mm headphone jack, a 3850mAh or 4000mAh battery, 6GB RAM, upgraded S Pen stylus, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC processor. Galaxy Note 9 is speculated to launch in late July or early August.

On the one hand, the Google Pixel 3 might be introduced on October 4 with an IP68 water-resistance rating, an improved phone camera, and the same Snapdragon 845 chipset running the Galaxy Note 9. It might offer a notch similar to the current iPhone X and a relocated clock icon from top-right to the top-left corner to provide sufficient space for the display cutout.

On the other hand, HMD Global will reportedly unveil the Nokia 9 in the third quarter with the Android P update, Carl Zeiss lenses, and a triple camera system made up of a 41-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 20-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 9.7-megapixel monochrome sensor. Nokia 9 is expected to boast a 6.01-inch AMOLED screen display with an 18:9 aspect ratio paired with 6GB RAM, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, USB Type-C port, dual-SIM support, IP68 rating for water and dust, a 3900mAh battery, and QuickCharge technology.

So, which one will you go for: iPhone X Plus, Galaxy Note 9, Google Pixel 3, or Nokia 9? Let us know your thoughts by writing in the comment section below.
