Yordan, 19 January 2020

Samsung and Huawei are expected to release their 2020 flagships in the next month or two, and the rumor mill is going wild. Interestingly enough, both the Galaxy S20 devices and the P40 family will have similar looks - a rectangular camera setup in the upper left corner, if we can trust the multiple leaked renders.

Other companies like OnePlus and Xiaomi are also working on their new devices - the Mi 10 should be one of the first smartphones with Snapdragon 865, while the OnePlus 8 Pro is going to have a 120 Hz QHD OLED display.

Samsung is bringing its second foldable display phone that will be a Razr-type clamshell and we learned its name - Galaxy Z Flip.

In other news Realme finally introduced its user interface, which is based on ColorOS 7, Xiaomi and nubia are working on 144 Hz refresh rate for their new phones and the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 are rumored to have 5G versions for the US market.
