New Samsung Smartphones 2020
On February 11, 2020, Samsung presented its new flagships of the S series. The names: Samsung Galaxy S20 (4G), S20 Plus (4G), and S20 Ultra (5G). The S20 and S20 Plus are also available in a 5G version.
Meanwhile, the middle class is also doing well – with the Samsung Galaxy A51 And Galaxy A71 right at the start of the year. Both devices look pretty promising. And come as a new edition of the successful models from 2019.
New Apple Smartphones 2020
With the rumors about the Apple smartphones / iPhones in 2020, it is habitually hot in the rumor mill. Speculators particularly focus on the budget model. It could be presented as early as the 1st quarter of 2020. And inherit the iPhone SE.
The “normal” flagship setup should come out again in September 2020 – with the premium models. But probably also a cheaper device – like the iPhone 11, which made it onto the market in 2019. At least with the high-end devices, 5G should (finally) be on board.
New Huawei smartphones 2020
The new Huawei smartphone setup for 2020 poses a few puzzles. Especially with a focus on the European market. The last flagship (Mate 30 Pro) was released in limited numbers via MediaMarkt in Germany – without Google Services.
The new P series will then be presented at the end of March 2020 (P40, P40 Pro). Most likely without Google Mobile Services. But with its own eco-system (Huawei Mobile Services with AppGallery). But there was a little surprise: The Huawei P40 Lite was presented in Europe (Spain) on February 26, 2020 at a price of 299 €.
Google Pixel Smartphones 2020
After Pixel 4 was released last year, the budget version should be released in the first half of 2020. We are talking about the Google Pixel 4a. At an estimated price of 399 €, things could get really exciting here again.

Preview: Which phones are coming in 2019? These are the top smartphones of the year
Which phones are coming in 2019? What is in the mobile phone preview? We show you which top smartphones of the year you can expect. Cell phone displays, in particular, are likely to change: fewer bezels, fewer notches, but a pop-up camera, foldable display, and a fingerprint sensor under glass.
And: There will probably be further improvements in the area of cameras too: Cell phones with triple and quad cameras are already on the market. The Penta camera (keyword: Nokia 9) is also a novelty. In short: there will be some news in 2019.
And then the signs point to 5G. The new radio standard does not only concern the Federal Network Agency and network providers. The manufacturers are also eagerly involved and have already sent the first 5G cell phones into the race.
Mobile phone innovations 2019 from Apple, Samsung, Huawei & Co. at a glance
What are the plans for cell phone innovations in 2019? Samsung and Huawei are once again in focus. At least in the first half of the year. And in September Apple fans can get used to the new iPhone again and make communication easy. Take a look at which smartphone innovations are planned for 2019.
February / March 2019: New Samsung Galaxy S10 (Plus) and Galaxy Fold
One of the most important spring dates is probably the Samsung event, at which the new models of the Galaxy S series are presented. Unsurprisingly, it is the Samsung Galaxy S10, together with the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. Much more exciting: Samsung relies on a trio and complements the Samsung Galaxy S10e.
And that’s far from over: With the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the company’s first smartphone with a foldable display should go on sale in a limited edition – for € 2,100. But then it was postponed to September.
Samsung is not the first: In 2018 Royole had already delivered a foldable display …
And Samsung had another surprise: The Galaxy S10 5G will come to Germany in the summer.
Huawei P30 (Pro) in the spring, foldable smartphone Mate X costs 2300 €
When it comes to the big leagues, you should also keep an eye on Huawei. Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro were planned here in March 2019. The Pro version in particular is exciting again, especially because of the zoom camera. But the prices are also in the top league: € 749 and € 999, respectively, according to the RRP. It is worth speculating on offers …
But there is even more from Huawei: At the Mobile World Congress, Huawei showed the Mate X: the first foldable smartphone that will cost € 2,300 and also has a 5G interface. But when is the device really available to buy? And does it come to Germany (with or without Google services)? It remains exciting …
LG V40, LG V50, and LG G8 – three flagships in a row
The LG V40 ThinQ was actually presented in October 2018. The smartphone has also been available in Germany since the end of January 2019.
However, we have not been able to really understand the company’s release policy for a long time. Several months after the official announcement, the specs are already more or less out of date. Interested parties should then rather wait for the release of the Huawei P30 and Samsung Galaxy S10.
Especially since LG also sets the RRP of its smartphones quite high. Or as in the case of the LG G8 and LG V50, it was kept a secret until shortly before. Anyway, with a contract, the V40 should be an exciting candidate.
In any case, LG G8, LG G8s, and LG V50 ThinQ were presented in February. All flagships, but none of the cell phones with a specific release date or even an RRP …
Sony Xperia 1 with laser sword display will not come until June
Sony wants to reposition itself in terms of smartphones. Instead of the Xperia XZ4, it has now become the Sony Xperia 1. The laser sword display in the unusual 21: 9 format is intended to provide special cinema experiences on the smartphone. The cell phone was introduced in February, but it won’t come until June. For our taste, the RRP of € 949 is clearly too high. All that remains is to speculate on offers.
Incidentally, at IFA 2019, the Xperia 5 was added. Quasi the little brother of the Xperia 1.
OnePlus 7 (Pro) in May 2019, 7T (Pro) in October 2019
The OnePlus 7 was released in May 2019. An even stronger (and more expensive) model was introduced with the OnePlus 7 Pro. In October the OnePlus 7T (Pro) will continue. A McLaren Edition should also be available again.
August: Galaxy Note 10 / Note 10 Plus
Samsung has long since secured August for its top devices. So we could look forward to Note 10. Surprising: A Note 10 Plus was also presented. So the premium version of the premium series …
New iPhone 2019 in September
The new iPhones 2019 were due for September. And we were not disappointed. 3 new models were presented. In addition to the iPhone 11 (which is cheap by Apple standards), the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Huawei Mate 30 series in September – without a start in Germany?
That turned out to be disappointing: The rather exciting Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro devices do not get Google software licensing. So have to do without Google Play and corresponding services. This is why they didn’t officially start in Germany. A real shame!
New smartphones 2019 with 5G?
A new wireless standard is also pending: New smartphones with 5G are expected in 2019. While the issue of 5G radio licenses is still being discussed in this country, people have come to a lot further abroad. South Korea, China, and Japan are already trying to activate the new radio standard soon.
So it’s no wonder that smartphone manufacturers are also preparing. The first 5G cell phones were presented in 2019. One can only hope that the 5G expansion will also progress rapidly in Germany. For 2019, 5G smartphones are unlikely to have any particular relevance here in Germany, even if the first models with 5G, e.g. from Samsung, will also be available in Germany by the middle of the year. Huawei is there with the Mate 20X 5G.

Why Buy New Phones (FAQ)?
Does it always have to be new cell phones? Not necessarily. In our FAQ we tell you why you should buy a new smartphone or why you should choose an older model.
Old vs. new – or a compromise?
A new smartphone is something nice. But taking every generation of cell phones with you is not only expensive, it is anything but sustainable. Is it about the question: »Old vs. new «you should weigh up what is important to you?
Your cell phone model shouldn’t be too old. After all, important security updates are no longer necessary. Many apps only run on newer models or with the latest operating system. And the demands are increasing: Applications are becoming more powerful, need a better processor and more memory. On the other hand, the new cell phone is usually associated with a decent budget. The key here is to keep your eyes open and look for current deals and promotions.
Or, as a compromise: use the previous generation of smartphones. They usually come with good specs anyway – and are in many cases significantly reduced in price when the successor is released.
