Expected phones in 2020

  • Google Pixel 4a
  • OnePlus 8 Lite
  • Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 2
  • Xiaomi flip phone
  • Apple iPhone 12
  • Nokia 9.3



Google’s smartphone offers access to great Google camera, but in a phone that’s more affordable. It looks like there’s going to be a Pixel 4a to appeal to those on a tighter budget, along with a punch hole front camera, 3.5mm headphone socket and a single camera on the back. Rumors have it that the phone will be launched May, 2020, but due to the pandemic, it appears that the unveiling will be 13 July; when we are expecting Google to reveal the Android 11 beta.

Phones in 2020

Price: However, the price seems to be fixed on $399.

Design: 144.2 × 69.5 × 8.2mm

  • Three colours
  • Polycarbonate body
  • There’s a fingerprint scanner on the rear.
  • Also, interestingly, Google seems to be pushing a pronounced camera bump here, with a single camera and flash in the black housing on the rear. That does, at least, give some familiar design link to the Pixel 4. All these elements from the renders appear to match leaked images of the phone.


  • 5.81-inch display, 2340 × 1080 pixels
  • Punch hole camera
  • OLED, 60Hz

The display on the Pixel 4a is expected to be flat, with slimmed down bezels and no notch. Instead, there’s going to be a punch hole for the front camera, something that we’ve not seen on a Pixel before.

Hardware specs

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 730, 4G
  • 6GB RAM, 64/128GB storage
  • 3080mAh battery


  • 12.2-megapixel main camera
  • 8-megapoxel front camera


OnePlus seems like an affordable phone of its own, which might be called the OnePlus 8 Lite or OnePlus Z. This phone might sit on MediaTek hardware and make a few compromises, but will likely offer a more affordable entry-point to OnePlus’ devices. It didn’t launch with the OnePlus 8 models, so might appear in the middle of 2020.

Design: 159.2 × 74 × 8.6mm

  • IP53 water protection
  • Aluminum alloy frame


  • 6.4-inch AMOLED display, 2400 × 1080 pixel, 90Hz
  • MediaTek diversity 1000, 8GB RAM, 128/256GB or Snapdragon 765
  • 4000mah battery, 30W warp charge.


We still have a conflict in the leaks as pertains to the number of cameras. Images shows two cameras and the flash in the housing, while the leaked Apex sheets suggest there are three cameras on the rear. Those rear cameras are suggested as 48-megapixel main, 16-megapixel ultra-wide and 12-megapixel telephoto, f/1.7, f/2.2 and f/2.4 respectively. However, we are still very unsure about the configuration, but again, OnePlus will surely control the price of this device.


Rumormongers have it that there’s an update to Galaxy Z Flip, we might see a 5G version. There is also a plan to add a third camera to this folding phone, which might appear on the Flip 2. The phone may not launch until sometime in 2021, but it is something to anticipate.


Overtime, Xiaomi has produced a good number of folding prototypes but now, it’s seems like the company is looking to get components from Samsung latest Display. Xiaomi is very much interested in showing off a folding phone similar to Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. This would potentially create a more affordable entry-point to folding phones and add variety to the growing market.

Phones in 2020


Yearly, people look forward to a fresh version of iPhone. It is one of the biggest events in tech due to its peculiarity. One that sets trends and seemingly everyone wants to have. Getting information about new Apple devices is quite rare. They hardly leak comprehensive information like other phones.

Expected date

Records have it that Apple usually holds its iPhone event in the second week of September. The company followed the same pattern in 2019.

If they follow same routine, we should expect the 2020 iPhone on September 8, 2020. Although, the spread of coronavirus and the effect it could have on new technology launches plays a huge role in the visibility of the date, we should expect something from Apple. Generally, because of travel restrictions, it is quite clear how the current global situation will affect things.


Nokia never really set sail. Release was limited, testing by the media was limited and it silently got into the background. But, rumor has it that Nokia is preparing to return with a new Nokia 9 flagship phone.

Nokia 9.3 could launch in the second half of 2020. Seemingly, September is a reasonable timeframe for the launch.

Expected Display

Though details are slim on the design of Nokia 9.3, but here is something to look forward to:

  • Waterfall display
  • Punch hole camera
  • 120Hz

Hardware specs

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+5G

With Nokia already making advancements towards 5G, we expect the 2020 version to be 5G.


• Conventional camera system with OIS.

• 64 or 108MP for the main camera

We suspect that Nokia is looking out for companies like Huawei, and are like going to follow their path.


In conclusion, there is a special kind of happiness that comes with knowing something before its official release to the public. It gives you bragging rights and oversight on what is “cooking” in the tech world. Now that you have gotten a clue as to what 2020 phones will look like, keep visiting the site to continuously get necessary updates on these phones.
