Most Attractive upcoming Android phones
Here we look at those phones that haven’t yet launched, the upcoming phones for 2020. We’ll be updating this list on a regular basis, with those device rumours we think are credible and exciting.
Best upcoming Android phones:
- Samsung Galaxy S20 series
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
- Xiaomi Mi 10 series
- LG G9 and V60 ThinQ
- Nokia 8.2 5G
1. Samsung Galaxy S20 series
Samsung’s new Galaxy S phones are just around the corner. Presumably called the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra, the trio will be announced on February 11 at Samsung’s Unpacked event in San Francisco.
The major differences between the Galaxy S20 and S20 Ultra are expected to be the battery and display sizes. The base model is expected to be the least feature-packed phone in the series, offering the smallest display and the fewest cameras at the back.

2. Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
Another Samsung phone rumoured to be launching on 11 February is the Galaxy Z Flip, or SM-F700. It’s a clamshell-style folding phone with a 6.7-inch display. It’s rumoured to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, but the price is supposed to be a lot lower than the previous folding phone from Samsung. It’s recently been named as the Galaxy Z Flip.
3. Xiaomi Mi 10 series
As the rest of Xiaomi’s lineup, the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are expected to offer great value for money, although we don’t know exactly how much they will cost at the moment. It’s definitely safe to say they will undercut flagships like the Galaxy S20 and P40 Pro by a wide margin.

4. LG G9 and V60 ThinQ
The company hasn’t shared anything about the LG G9 ThinQ so far, but we do know a bit about it thanks to the recently leaked CAD renders. The renders reveal that the upcoming phone may come with four cameras at the back, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a headphone jack. A dedicated Google Assistant button is also expected. Rumors have it that the display will measure between 6.7 and 6.9 inches and will sport a small notch on top.
The V60 ThinQ, on the other hand, is expected to be a 5G phone that will come with a secondary screen, just like the LG G8X ThinQ. However, this time around, the company will reportedly redesign the hinge mechanism that attaches the second display. No word on specs and features for now, but the handset is expected to offer plenty of power under the hood and will be aimed at demanding users.
5. Nokia 8.2 5G
Nokia and Qualcomm have been talking up affordable 5G handsets based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Series hardware. We know they are coming but we don’t know a lot more about what these phones will offer – besides faster connection speeds. What’s confirmed is that we’ll get a 5G Nokia phone and it’s likely to appear at MWC 2020. We suspect it will be called the Nokia 8.2 because that’s a mid-range phone waiting to be upgraded – and we think it will run the Snapdragon 765.
