    Best new phones expected in 2018


    What can we expect to see in terms of new phones in the second half of 2018? And which one will be the best new phone to buy in 2018?

    With most smartphone makers already settled on a yearly upgrade cycle and with some leaks and rumors, we already have a rough idea of when the most anticipated phones of 2018 will come. We know more about some devices than about others, and with so much time before the actual releases things are surely subject to change, but if you want to get a general idea of what next year will look like in terms of mobile tech, read on.

    The big focus of 2018 flagship Android phones will be the new Snapdragon 845 system chip and the improvements that it brings. In 2017, most if not all flagship phones ran on the Snapdragon 835, and we are curious to see whether the 845 will repeat Qualcomm's success. On Apple's side of things, we are curious to see what the company brings in terms of AR and Face ID, plus: how will it actually call the iPhone X successor? And also, we are in the midst of a period in time when phones are making thinner and thinner bezels, and ever larger screens, which makes for some exciting new designs.

    With no further ado, let's get on to our list of the most anticipated phones of 2018.

    • Sony Xperia XZ3 New interface, dual camera, evolved design Fall $800
    • Nokia 9 Innovative multi-lens Zeiss camera Fall $700
    • Huawei Mate 20 Great battery life, performance and camera improvements October $800
    • Moto Z3 Force Unbreakable display, performance and camera improvements August $700
    • LG V40 Focus on pro features like audio quality and video recording October $800
    • OnePlus 6T Not yet known November $500
    • Google Pixel 3 New edge-to-edge design, new Android version, new AI features October $650
    • Google Pixel 3 XL Improved display quality, new Android version, new AI features October $850
    • Samsung Galaxy Note 9 In-display fingerprint scanner, better S Pen September-October $950
    • Apple iPhone 9 6.1" edge-to-edge LCD display, no 3D Touch, new AR features September 21st, 2018 $700
    • Apple iPhone X 2018 Performance and camera improvements, new AR features September 21st, 2018 $1,000
    • Apple iPhone 9 Plus 6.5" OLED edge-to-edge screen, new higher price, focus on camera performance, new AR features September 21st, 2018 $1,000+



    Sony Xperia XZ 3
    Expected release date: Fall 2018 (IFA)
    Expected price: $800


    Why wait for it: finally, a new interface?


    Sony finally updated the design of its phones with the new XZ2 series earlier in 2018, and now we expect the company to step things up further in the second half of the year with the new Xperia XZ3. The XZ3 is rumored to feature a dual camera system on the back, but the bigger change that might come with it is a new Sony interface that will be in line with Android P innovations and could support gestures. The news about the development of the new interface has come from sources way up top within Sony and we have seen the company abandon many features of its previous interface, so it seems very likely that this will happen.

    Nokia 9
    Expected release date: Fall 2018
    Expected price: $700


    Why wait for it: big bets on camera


    HMD Global brought us the beloved Nokia brand in phones in 2017, but it could not make a huge splash. We expect its next flagship to be better - it has to be, if the brand wants to make it big. Nokia has traditionally focused on having great camera and we expect the new Nokia 9 premium flagship in 2018 to do just that: offer a great smartphone package with an outstanding camera with Zeiss optics.

    Huawei Mate 20 Pro
    Expected release date: Fall 2018
    Expected prices: $800


    Why wait for it: Huawei looks to bring new AI features


    Huawei is still not a company that many people in the United States know about, but it has made it big worldwide. In fact, it's now the world's third-largest phone maker. It has two top-tier devices, a bit like Samsung's S and Note series: those are the Huawei P series that launch in spring, and Huawei's Mate series that launch in the fall. We have already seen the P20 Pro stir things up with its triple camera system and the new Mate 20 Pro is expected to up the camera game further, as well as boast a larger screen and a bigger battery. We also expect Huawei to lead the way with its own Artificial Intelligence (AI) developments and with its own line of Kirin processors.

    Moto Z3 Force
    Expected release date: Summer 2018
    Expected price: $700


    Why wait for it: un-breakable screen and one-of-a-kind modular design


    Lenovo-owned Motorola is making some good phones at all price points, from the affordable G series to the mid-range X to the premium Z series. The new 2018 Moto Z3 Force is likely to build up on two key strengths: the unique, unbreakable "ShatterShield" display and the cool modular add-on capability. The phone could launch in the summer with a presentation by the entertaining and knowlegdable Ashton Kutcher as a host.

    LG V40
    Expected release date: Fall 2018
    Expected prices: $800


    Why wait for it: LG mobile division losses will push it to excellence


    LG has also settled on introducing two flagship phones in a year and we have already seen the LG G7 ThinQ, but the real bad boy that we are all looking forward to is the LG V40, a phone with power user features and an all-out approach to performance, cameras and battery life.

    OnePlus 6T
    Expected release date: Fall 2018
    Expected prices: From $550


    Why wait for it: Very affordable for what it offers, super fast performance and charging speeds


    OnePlus is a company that now 4 years of experience in the mobile phone world, so it's not quite the start-up it was a few years ago. It has unveiled the OnePlus 6 in the middle of the year and we expect one more phone by the end of the year: the OnePlus 6T. We don't yet know what that phone could look like, but we are seeing other companies with the same owner as OnePlus introduce phones like the Vivo Nex and Oppo Find X with a crazy, true all-screen design and no notch. Those are premium devices that OnePlus might emulate. Still, for the OnePlus 6T we don't quite expect something as revolutionary: a bump in specs and a few other tricks is all that we think we'll get with the 6T.

    Google Pixel 3/3 XL
    Expected release date: Fall 2018
    Expected prices: $650 / $850


    Why wait for it: The only phone guaranteed to get Android updates on time, claims to be best camera


    Google's Pixel series of phones have quickly grabbed the hearts of Android fans: the spiritual successor to the Nexus family, the Pixels are more premium, but still come with the promise of day 1 software updates (a rarity on Android), they have amazing cameras and a smooth performance unlike that on any other Android handset. The expected Pixel 3 and 3 XL - these should come in the fall of 2018 - have to build upon a successful foundation, but they have to fix a few serious issues. The biggest one is the screen quality: the new Pixels need to get that right. For all else, we expect Google to continue impressing us with advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning, and to offer the usual bump in performance, slight improvements in battery life and camera. The biggest question towards the new Pixel 3, however, remains availability: will they be available outside of Verizon Wireless and in more markets worldwide?

    Samsung Galaxy Note 9
    Expected release date: Fall 2018
    Expected prices: $950


    Why wait for it: Samsung to bring innovative camera technology and try to make the interface stutter-free


    Samsung is the poster-child of Android, but while its phones are very popular, they are not perfect. In the second half of 2018, we expect Samsung to launch the new Galaxy Note 9 with an even-better looking screen and more power user features for lovers of the S Pen. The Note 9 is also expected to have a fingerprint positioned in the right place: below the camera, where it's easy to reach, and it should have the latest Snapdragon 845 system chip on board and some new tricks up its sleeve.

    Apple iPhone Xs, 8s and 8s Plus
    Expected release date: Fall 2018
    Expected prices: $1,000, $800 and $1,000+


    Why wait for it: An edge-to-edge affordable iPhone likely, but prices may overall grow further


    Apple introduced the $1,000 iPhone X in 2018 with its bezel-less screen and that big notch at the top. In 2018, we expect to see the second-generation iPhone X - let's call it iPhone Xs - a phone that should keep the same size and design styling, but receive a bump in system and camera performance. It's too early to tell what else will be new in the iPhone Xs, but what we know is that the device is likely to be officially announced in mid-September 2018 and launch a week or so after that.

    Apple is also likely to upgrade the other two iPhones and introduce an iPhone 8s and 8s Plus of sorts.

    Rumors so far point that there will be one iPhone with a 6.1-inch LCD screen that might have an edge-to-edge screen, but no 3D touch.

    The interesting thing is that the Plus model could transform into a very pricey affair with a 6.5-inch OLED screen. All of these are early rumors so far, so take them with a grain of salt..

    The Pixel 3 XL looks good but has such a giant notch thing. However, if the camera is as good as the Pixel 2, it should do well. I'm interested in the OnePlus 6T.
