Its already the end of April but the smartphone market has not seen many new upcoming smartphones 2020.Obviously this is due to the current world situation.Almost every country is under lockdown(at least the international borders) due to which phone companies have intentionally postponed their new launches.Rest assured as soon as the pandemic comes under control there will be an outburst of new launches.
Many phones have already been announced or released but have not come to sale in most countries.The most prominent of them being the Samsung Galaxy S20 series,the iPhone SE 2020,the Huawei P40 series,the OnePlus 8and 8Pro.By the mid of May hopefully they will be available.
The following are some of the upcoming smartphones 2020 of different companies.

You can read the details of all the phones mentioned in my future posts.
Nokia may overtake Samsung or Oppo and become the first to launch the under display front camera.All smartphone companies are trying to reduce bezels on their devices.The main obstacle in reducing bezels has been the front camera.
As you already know different innovations have been tested.The notch display,punch hole front camera,the pop up front camera are present.But companies specially Samsung are testing the under display front camera for a long time and it was rumoured that their upcoming flagship may feature it.Now it is being heard that Samsung and Oppo have declared that the under display camera is not ready.
Here Nokia has nailed the deal.It is being rumoured that the upcoming Nokia 9.3 Pureview will feature the under display front camera along with 108MP main camera and a penta camera set up as in Nokia 9.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold 1 was a rank failure to be honest.Samsung has worked on it and are set to launch the Galaxy Fold 2 which may hit the market in August 2020.
Samsung’s annual S Pen stylus bearing flagship the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is also rumoured to arrive in August 2020 but this year nothing is certain.The Note 20 is supposed to have the same 108 MP camera,120Hz display of the S20 Ultra.
It is also being heard that Samsung has partnered with AMD a leading company in making processors.The Galaxy S21 to be launched next year may come with AMD GPU.
Xperia1ii and Xperia Pro are all set to be available in the market again the time nobody being sure of.These will have the same Alpha line of cameras as in Xperia 1.The cameras have some unique features.Standing out among them is the Eye AF which automatically focuses on a person’s eye.
Motorola has again popped up in the flagship market with the Motorola Edge+ and Edge.The Edge+ comes with 90Hz display,108MP camera and a massive 5000mAH battery.Their main feature are the curved edges by which they get their names.
Besides the above mentioned phones there are some which have been released and are in sale in some countries but not available globally.For example the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro .The Huawei P40,P40 Pro and the P40 Pro+ will not be available in US because of some legal ban but is in sale in some European countries.You can read about both the above mentioned devices in my previous posts.
Apple’s iPhone 12 or whatever name they may give is not sure to launch in September like most new iPhones do.
Let’s hope this Covid 19 pandemic ends soon and life comes back to normal.Till then stay safe .
