2020 was a very unusual year in all areas, with the new coronavirus pandemic disrupting plans and postponing some projects. But the necessary social distance to which we have been subjected has not delayed technological progress so much, and we can still expect some news for 2021 that are appearing on the horizon.
Best Slimmest Phones 2021
However, it is good to keep in mind now that we do not expect many incredible news in the mobile phone sector. It is very likely that most companies bring only new generations of their models already announced in this and previous years, with improvements and one or another new feature.
Even so, it is worth checking the list of most awaited smartphones of 2021 below. Of course, many of them may end up coming under a different name, but the idea is to point out what we can expect again in the next generations of the lines we already know, in addition to see some new bets.
We select models of all costs and categories, from options for those looking for a cheaper cell phone, with slightly more basic functions, to devices that have the best specifications on the market, offering everything that is most modern in this segment.
Galaxy Z Flip 2/3
The successor to the Galaxy Z Flip is expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2021, with some minor improvements to an already great folding cellphone style “makeup case”. There are few rumors about the device yet, and among the bets that have already been out there are a screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and an external display up to 3x higher than the first generation. The name can also be Galaxy Z Flip 2 or Z Flip 3.
Galaxy Z Fold FE
When we talk about Samusng, we can expect great news in mobile phones with foldable screens for years to come. The company is already betting on models that can still bring a lot of different things from now on, instead of just improving what worked in the past decade.
The Galaxy Z Fold line promises a lot of news for 2021, according to rumors. Perhaps the most anticipated is the FE model , which would be the most affordable Z Fold 2 and built with what “fans asked for”. What is exciting is the fact that foldable technology is beginning to reach a larger share of users, but it is not yet known what cost cuts Samsung would make on the model.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3, in turn, may be the first model of the brand to bring selfies camera under the screen , in addition to having a thinner and lighter design , a feature possibly shared with the Z Fold FE.
Motorola Edge 2 and Moto G ‘Nio’
Little is known about the successor to the Motorola Edge , and there are no rumors even about the manufacturer maintaining the line for next year. It is certain that the company will have a high-end phone with the recently launched Snapdragon 888.
Motorola confirmed during the Snapdragon Tech Summit that it plans to launch a Moto G with Snapdragon 800 series platform next year. According to some rumors, it would be the device codenamed Nio, which would still have Snapdragon 865 and display refresh rate different from all other models, at 105 Hz . But rest assured that there is a model with Qualcomm’s latest premium chipset under development in the company’s aisles.
Motorola Razr 2
The second generation of the Motorola foldable is also expected to hit the market in 2021. The name Razr 2 is not yet official, and there is little information about the device out there. According to Ross Young, DSCC’s executive director and display analyst, little will change with regard to the screen , with the 6.2-inch internal and external display also similar to the first generation model. The good news is that this should help lower the starting price of the phone.
Like it or not, the next generation of Apple phones is still one of the most anticipated of the year. Little is known about the alleged iPhone 13, and one of the few rumors speaks only of the possibility that a 1 TB version of storage will finally be offered by Apple. For the rest, we can expect little change, since the people in Cupertino started to adopt a strategy of not changing much in the winning team.
Xiaomi Mi 11
Xiaomi ‘s long-awaited new top of the line has already been confirmed as one of the first to come out with Snapdragon 888 during the Snapdragon Tech Summit. The successor of the Mi 10 should bring support to the 55 W recharge and improvements in processor and cameras, mainly.
Little is known about the Moto G10 line, not least because the G9 recently arrived. A supposed image of the Moto G10 Play appeared on the internet in early November, with a look very similar to that of the G9 Play , except for the fingerprint reader, shifted to the side.
The fact is that updates to the Moto G line are always highly anticipated, and it will be no different with the next generation, whose first rumors should start popping up soon.
Redmi Note 10
rivals Moto G here in Brazil. In the end, it seems that it was the models that ended up coming out as Redmi Note 9 in China , with 5G support and everything. We do not rule out the possibility of the company globalizing these devices as Redmi Note 10 . But, until some official information appears, anything can happen.
LG “Project B”
Finally, we have a possibility for rollable screens to hit the market next year. Among the several companies that have already confirmed that they have a project of this type, LG seems one of the closest to bringing one of these phones commercially in 2021. There is still no official name for the device, which has been called Project B internally and is part of the same line as the Wing, a rotating screen phone launched this year.
Of course, there are several models expected by fans of different brands. The Galaxy S21 is certainly the favorite of many people, as well as the OnePlus 9 and the long-awaited top of the line Nokia, which did not come out in 2020. But here in this list we try to focus on phones with some novelty or that are part of very popular with fans.
