Note that these are not essentially flagship smartphones and have made the list for facts more than just the price.

These are the top 10 upcoming Android smartphones: Android Updated picks

  1. Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup
  2. Essential Phone 2
  3. Xperia XZ4
  4. Samsung Galaxy F foldable smartphone
  5. Oppo Find Z
  6. Samsung Galaxy A90
  7. Huawei Mate foldable smartphone

Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup

The last year’s Samsung Galaxy S9 lineup of smartphones was criticized for being mere incremental upgrades over their predecessors even after the fact that they had incorporated one of the best smartphone camera lenses in the year 2018. Samsung appears to have taken this very seriously and the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup will have all that it takes to woo us.

Essential Phone 2

Essential Phone, Android creator Andy Rubin’s dream child, brought about a drastic change in the world of Android owing to the fact that it featured a dewdrop notch at the time (2017) when even 18:9 aspect ratio smartphones used to be just the flagships.

It’s rather unfortunate to see such a product failing due to financial losses and lack of consumer interest.

Thankfully enough, the company is not planning on giving up on the Essential lineup of smartphones as of now as the Essential Phone 2 is already on its way.

If the fresh bunch of reports has to be believed, the Essential Phone 2 will be a substantial improvement over its predecessor and will feature an under-display camera as well as an under-display fingerprint scanner.


Xperia XZ4

The upcoming Xperia XZ4 will allegedly feature an unusual 21:9 cinemawide display and will be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and 8GB RAM.

The report has come to Android Updated courtesy of Letsgodigital.

On 4 February 2019, Sony Mobile Communications filed a trademark with the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) for the CinemaWide name. The trademark is classified as Class 9 with the description; ‘smartphones, tablets, displays, application software for smartphones, image processing apparatus, exposed cinematographic films.’

The application was submitted by lawyer Müller Fottner from Munich, who acted on behalf of Sony Mobile Communications. This German company has in the past more often applied for brand names for Sony.


Samsung Galaxy F foldable smartphone

We have noticed a number of noteworthy differences between the foldable smartphone model that can be seen in the teaser video and the mobile device that was shown last November at the Samsung Developer Conference. The smartphone housing was a dummy case at the time, so you could only see the flexible display and not the design of the phone itself. LetsGoDigital has already had 3D renders designed for this device last year.


Oppo Find Z

After the success the Oppo Find X witnessed last year, Oppo is all geared up to launch the second generation of the lineup. Contrary to the earlier belief that the device will be dubbed the Oppo Find X2, a new report from Letsgodigital suggests that the device will be dubbed the Oppo Find Z.

Samsung Galaxy A90

While the world on Android is all caught up talking about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 flagship lineup of smartphones, it appears that the company is all geared up to launch the Samsung Galaxy A90 pretty soon.

If the recent tweet by Ice Universe is to be believed, the device will be Samsung’s first smartphone to feature a pop-up selfie snapper.


Huawei Mate foldable smartphone

Huawei has released information about its future smartphone models over time. In October 2017, Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, reported for the first time that Huawei has a folding phone in development.

In addition, the company already had a working prototype of a two-screen device, Richard Yu added. There was only a small gap between them that needed to be fixed.

ZTE Axon 10 Pro

The upcoming ZTE Axon 10 Pro Geekbench scores have performed better than the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 which comes as a surprise to us all.


LG G8 ThinQ

LG will unveil the upcoming LG G8 ThinQ during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019. The device will allegedly feature a 3,400 mAh battery.


Samsung Galaxy M30

Samsung has turned a lot of heads with the likes of the recently launched Samsung Galaxy M10 and Samsung Galaxy M20 budget smartphones. The company is now all set to launch the Samsung Galaxy M30 which will be a slightly better and upgraded variant in the lineup.

The most noticeable feature will be the triple rear camera setup which will make the Galaxy M30 one of the very few smartphones in the market to have such a feat, that too at such a low price.

More live shots and promotional video of the Lenovo Z6 Pro appear

Published

Lenovo z6 pro teardown

The upcoming Lenovo Z6 Pro has once again popped up on the internet as a bunch of live shots and a promotional video of the device appear online.

The first image showcases the device’s rear in all its glory, the second one shows a kind of a teardown of the device and its specifications, and the third one shows off the display and the under-display fingerprint scanner.

Furthermore, the company has shared a promotional video of the device on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo.

Recently, Cheng has shared a bunch of camera shots taken from the Lenovo Z6 Pro and if the images are indeed taken from the device (and not by a DSLR, duh), there is certainly a big reason as to why you need to be interested in the device.

Just have a look at the photos and judge by yourself.

Lenovo Z6 Pro camera shots

Looking at the images, it is clear that we are going to get a monster of a smartphone. Once again, we won’t trust Cheng as of now as he is kind of famous for faking news, but the future of the Z6 Pro looks promising if it’s not all lies.

The pre-orders of the device have already begun. Today, the company has posted the official image of the rear of the device which depicts a quad rear camera arrangement.

lenovo z6 pro camera features

One of the rear cameras will be a 48MP unit. This confuses everything as the earlier rumors suggested a 100MP camera coming up with the device. Nevertheless, we will get to know everything pretty soon as the launch date is not too far away.

Lenovo z6 pro launch date

We already know that the device is going to pack in a bunch of amazing features including a whopping 12GB of RAM and a 100MP (alleged) primary camera.

Adding on to that, the device will most certainly be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. This, however, is no more a rumor as the company has made it official via the Chinese microblogging website Weibo.

Qualcomm has already hinted that we would get 100MP cameras in smartphones somewhere this year, but we did not expect the news to come from Lenovo (watch out Samsung and Huawei).

Will the Lenovo Z6 Pro actually feature a 100MP camera?

To be honest, this news must be taken with due precaution as Cheng has had a reputation of exaggerating and overhyping (who can forget the Lenovo Z5 fiasco). There might be a possibility of an on-paper specs bump using software tweaks.

Nevertheless, having a 100MP camera (howsoever it turns out to be) is pretty impressive in itself.

The prime highlight of the device is going to be a HyperVision camera. Furthermore, the device will feature 5G, making it the company’s first smartphone to have 5G support.

While addressing the audience, a Lenovo representative gave us an idea of the upcoming plans of the company. As per the announcement, Lenovo is all geared up to launch the Lenovo Z6 Pro which will be the company’s first smartphone to have 5G support.

Not only that, but the device will also sport a new HyperVision camera which will be capable of recording Hyper Videos, a concept which is still not implemented practically in the world of Android smartphones.

Under the hood, the Lenovo Z6 Pro will be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage with scope for further expansion with the help of an external SD card.

As of now, little is known about the device, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days as the launch date approaches.

To know more about the device, you can head to our existing coverage of the same.
