2020 gave us a ton of new smartphones in different price segments. In 2021, no less quality unique products from various manufacturers are expected. In this article, let’s talk about the five most anticipated smartphones of the current year.
Apple is announcing the flagships of the iPhone 13 series in the fall of 2021. The manufacturer is expected to re-show the Standard Edition and the mini, Pro, and Pro Max versions, as it did a couple of months ago. We will not consider a specific model but the family as a whole.
Upcoming updates may reduce the size of the cutout due to the more compact Face ID system. Simultaneously, the design and dimensions of smartphones will remain the same as in the iPhone 12 family. Finally, Apple models will support increased image refresh rates. Moreover, the manufacturer will skip 90 Hz and start immediately with 120 Hz.
All four versions of the iPhone 13 will receive OLED panels from Samsung and LG. The older versions will retain three optical modules and LiDAR, while the younger ones will again do without a telephoto lens with optical zoom.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3
Samsung will ditch the Galaxy Note line this year. But the niche will not be empty because the manufacturer intends to fill it with bendable smartphones. One of them is Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3, which will be presented this summer.
The model will receive support for the S Pen. Simultaneously, unlike the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, the foldable flagship will have a stylus. The smartphone will be made in the form factor of previous-generation models.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 will be powered by a 5nm Snapdragon 888 mobile processor. The software will be based on the Android 11 operating system with One UI 3.1 shell. The smartphone will borrow the main camera from the Samsung Galaxy S21. Its resolution will be 12 Mp + 12 Mp + 64 Mp.

Huawei P50 Pro+
In March 2021, Huawei announces a model that will claim to be the best camera phone on the market. We are talking about the Huawei P50 Pro + with a 5-nanometer single-chip Kirin 9000 5G system with a peak frequency of 3.13 GHz.
The smartphone will be equipped with two telephoto lenses with 10x and 3x optical zoom. The software zoom will be 200x, which has not yet been on the market. The ultra-wide-angle camera will have a resolution of 50 megapixels. In the front camera, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module will join the 32-megapixel sensor.
The rest of the specs of the Huawei P50 Pro + shouldn’t be upset either. The flagship will be equipped with a 6.7-inch OLED panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a 4300 mAh battery. The power of fast charging via the wire will be 66 W and wirelessly – 50 W.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra
Xiaomi will also present a flagship smartphone with a camera bias. It will be called Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra and will replace the Mi 10 Ultra, which was launched last summer to mark the Chinese brand’s birthday.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra will receive a four-module primary camera with two telephoto lenses. The 5-nanometer Snapdragon 888 mobile processor will be responsible for the performance. One of the features will be 67-watt fast wireless charging. Also note, NFC, Android 11, MIUI 12.5, and Quad HD + display with support for 120Hz refresh rate.
The foldable iPhone Flip smartphone
We started with Apple’s smartphone, its own device, and will finish. The formal announcement of the foldable iPhone Flip is expected in 2021. Testing prototypes began at the end of last year at Foxconn factories. The commercial version is due in 2022.
There is almost no information on the iPhone Flip yet. LG and Samsung are known to be suppliers of foldable panels. The upcoming novelty is also promised 8 GB of RAM and a built-in flash drive with a capacity of 256 GB, and it will look like an iPad mini.
In 2021, each of the largest smartphone manufacturers will present a new generation flagship. Alas, now there is almost no information about them, but almost every day on the vastness of the world wide web there will be more data on upcoming new products.
