Top 10 Best Upcoming Mobile Phones In 2021

2020 was a year brimming with innovative smartphones to choose from and this year we should expect to witness the much anticipated super-fast 5G connectivity going mainstream.

This will henceforth become the standard feature for all mobile devices that hit the market.

We will start seeing mobile screens with 120Hz refresh rates; which is fantastic news for gamers and video enthusiasts, along with smartphone cameras with increased megapixels and additional sensors that the communications industry has never even seen before.

We are anticipating brand new smartphones from manufacturing giants like Samsung, Google, Apple, and OnePlus, along with revelations from lesser players such as Motorola and LG.

We can barely contain our excitement since 2021 is a promising start to another decade of innovative smartphone design, and new tech supported by the 5G network.

Because the range of expected options can be quite overwhelming for those of us on the lookout for a top Android smartphone, we’ve come up with this curated list.

You’ll find the details right here:


The Most-Anticipated Android Smartphones Of 2021

1.Samsung Galaxy S20 series

Samsung has 3 new Galaxy smartphones scheduled for release.

The Galaxy trio of S20, S20 Plus, & S20 Ultra, should be unveiled this February by Samsung.

The tech giant is once again poised to become the go-to Android device manufacturer for millions of users across the globe.

Even though the company hasn’t revealed any specific details about the forthcoming devices, we have an idea of what you can expect design-wise thanks to reports and stories that are circulating in the media.

All 3 smartphones are rumoured to have curved screens, as well as a fingerprint scanner integrated into the display.

The stories also suggest that you won’t find a headphone jack on any of them.

Moreover, the biggest differences between the Samsung Galaxy S20 & the S20 Ultra should be in their display and battery sizes. 

2. Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

You can expect the Galaxy Z Flip smartphone to be completely different from its predecessor.

During a developer’s conference in 2020, Samsung exhibited a vertically folding phone concept – just like a regular flip phone.

It is almost the same strategy Motorola used during the launch of its foldable Razr handset.

These are only rumours, however, and there's no assurance that Samsung will also travel this route, but it is likely.

If the rumours are accurate, you can expect the new smartphone to feature a 10 MegaPixel front-facing camera and the older version of the Snapdragon 855 chipset, as well as a price tag within the $500 to $1,000 range.

3. Xiaomi Mi 10 series

Xiaomi already made headlines in late 2019 when the Mi Note 10 was launched.

It was the first smartphone with a 108 MegaPixel camera. Also, we witnessed the unveiling of the Mi Mix Alpha with its ultra-high resolution sensor. Recent evidence now suggests that the flagship Mi 10 series will also feature this camera.

The latest series should comprise the Mi 10 & the Mi 10 Pro. Both smartphones will likely be launched in February.

4. LG G9 & V60 ThinQ

Although the manufacturers haven’t shared any info regarding the specs of the LG G9 ThinQ, reliable sources say that this upcoming Android device may feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, up to 4 rear cameras, and a headphone jack.

It is also expected to have a customizable Google Assistant button. Plus, there are reports that it will have a display measuring between 6.7 to 6.9 inches.

Meanwhile, the V60 ThinQ is most likely a 5G enabled smartphone that should feature a secondary display, just like with the G8X ThinQ by LG.

But, the manufacturer will reportedly re-design the hinge system that fastens the second screen this time around.

5. ZTE Axon 10S Pro 5G

This latest flagship from ZTE, the Axon 10 Pro, is already commercially available in Europe and China.

It is an excellent 5G smartphone that offers loads of value for your money. This phone is essentially a minor improvement on the Axon 10 Pro 5G from last year.

The forthcoming Android device is expected to feature a Full HD+ OLED display of 6.47 inches, 3 rear cameras, an in-display fingerprint scanner, as well as the Snapdragon 865 chipset.

6. Sony Xperia 5 Plus

The Xperia 5 Plus from Sony is a successor to the Xperia 5; and although nothing has been announced officially, the specifications we’ve stated below have been rumoured.

This upcoming smartphone should have a fingerprint scanner mounted on the side, 3 cameras located on the rear (right next to a ToF sensor), as well as a jack for headphones which is absent on both the Sony Xperia 1 & 5 smartphone models.

Some rumours suggest the Android device will have 2 front speakers, and an OLED display measuring 6.6 inches.

7. Huawei P40 series

The manufacturers have confirmed their plans to launch both the P40 & P40 Pro by March this year.

Just like with the other Huawei P smartphones, the P40 series should also be focused more on cameras.

There are reports that the P40 Android device will have up to 4 rear cameras, whereas the Pro model should feature as many as 5 of them.

8. OnePlus 8 series

OnePlus' next-generation smartphone is expected to support the Android v10 (Q) mobile OS.

This Android smartphone series is also expected to be made up of 3 different devices: the 8 Pro, the OnePlus 8, & the 8 Lite.

The 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 are rumoured to be high-end smartphones. The Lite model, on the other hand, should be a mid-level device.

Their unveiling has been scheduled for May this year. 

9. Google Pixel 4a

Google is expected to launch the latest modification of its mid-range smartphone known as the Pixel 4a this year.

Reports have stated that it will feature a 5.81-inch screen.

Other rumours also suggest that we will see a fingerprint scanner mounted on the rear as well as a hole-punch screen.

10. Asus Zenfone 7

We anticipate that the Zenfone 7 from Asus will follow in the footsteps of its predecessor - the Zenfone 6.

Therefore, expect it to feature high-end specs, as well as a flip camera which gives it a unique look and enables a full-screen experience.
