5G – networks are already developing in many countries. In the US, there are even mmWave networks that provide multi-gigabit speeds. In Russia, it makes no sense to buy 5G – a smartphone, at least until 2022. However, this does not mean that we should not know what the smartphone market offers us in this segment.
Which 5G smartphones are worth waiting for in 2020?
Currently 5G – devices are mainly represented in the flagship segment. Among them are Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G, Galaxy S10 5G, OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, OnePlus 7T Pro 5G, LG V50 ThinQ 5G, Moto Z4, Z3 and Z2 with dedicated Moto module 5G Mod.
Also note Huawei Mate X, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, ZTE Axon 10 Pro, Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G, Oppo Reno 5G, Samsung Galaxy A90 5G, Oppo Reno 3 Pro 5G.
The list is pretty impressive. You can see that almost all devices cost about 1000 dollars, which makes them not a very attractive purchase for most consumers. But everything should change in 2020, when smartphones on mid-budget 5G processors will become popular. The most popular cheap 5G chipset in 2020 should be Snapdragon 765.
What devices will support 5G in 2020?
Almost everything is over $ 250. It makes no sense to list all smartphones that will be released in 2020. But it is obvious that in many developed countries the infrastructure already allows the use of 5G – devices. All top-end devices from the manufacturers will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor, and it supports 5G – networks thanks to the X55 modem.
In the mid-budget segment, the distribution 5G will be facilitated by the Snapdragon 765 and Dimensity 1000 processors from MediaTek. They can be equipped with devices of the line Redmi from Xiaomi, OnePlus 8 Lite can get the 765th. Among them may also be Oppo smartphones, Vivo, LG, Sony, Samsung and other manufacturers.
There are interesting devices that are worth waiting for in 2020 with support 5G. Among them, OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8T, Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy Note 11 and, of course, Xiaomi Mi 10.
The most anticipated 5G – smartphone of 2020 – Galaxy Fold 2
Galaxy Fold 2 – the most modern
Yes, that's what I expect the most in 2020. The smartphone will most likely receive a version with support 5G and will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset. However, the biggest plus is the form factor. Samsung will be holding a special event in February featuring the Fold 2 and S20. In this case, sales of the Fold 2 start immediately after the presentation. This is done in order to get ahead of competitors in the face of Xiaomi and other manufacturers, who also plan to release devices with a similar clamshell form factor.
The Fold 2 looks almost perfect. It's hard for me to imagine what else Samsung can surprise with in the future. Foldable smartphones seem to be the pinnacle of mobile device development.
OnePlus 8 Lite is the best smartphone for $ 300
OnePlus 8 Lite is one of the most anticipated
I will only assume that the phone will cost no more than $ 300. Most likely, it will be equipped with a Snapdragon 765 processor. The device will probably look like its older brother, with a frameless body, multiple cameras and premium materials.
OnePlus 8 Lite will be able to compete with mid-budget devices Xiaomi.
Google Pixel 4a – a budget employee from Google
Another device that will be shown in 2020 is the Pixel 4a. Most likely, the 5G version of the device will also be presented on the market. It will cost about $ 400 and will offer owners a camera comparable in quality to the Pixel 4 camera.
These are the 3 most anticipated 5G smartphones in 2020. I have no doubt that they can become the most popular in the community and receive the most publicity, because the rest have nothing more to surprise. Although, of course, I do not exclude that in 2020 some companies have prepared something interesting for us. For example, at CES 2020, OnePlus may bring a very special product. OnePlus 8 Lite may become it, but it is possible that we are talking about an experimental gadget with unique technologies.
