We’re just a few days away from the first major smartphone launch of the year.
Samsung will announce the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus at MWC on February 25, though at this point not much is left to the imagination. A full list of specs, images, and even some camera features have leaked out. As exciting as these phones may be, the S9 won’t be without competition in the first half of 2018.
The successor to the LG G6, the phone LG is calling ‘Judy‘, is expected to arrive sometime in June. LG is taking its time with this new phone, even delaying its launch by a few months in order to get all the details right. We have seen a list of rumored specs, though the device’s design has yet to break its cover. Still, we’re anxiously waiting to see what the company has in store with the G6’s successor.
Another pair of phones launching in Q1 2018 are the Huawei P20 and P20 Plus, Huawei’s iPhone X clones. According to leaked renders, the P20 line will sport three rear-facing cameras in a vertical array on the left side of the device, which looks similar to the iPhone X’s setup. The Huawei phones will also sport a notch, which will house what looks to be dual front-facing cameras. Both devices are expected to run on the Kirin 970 chipset, sport 19:9 aspect ratio displays, and dual speakers.
