Throughout 2017 we have witnessed sweeping revolutions in the smartphone market with new brands such as Nokia, despite not being entirely “new” – Razer and Essential, firms like OnePlus and Xiaomi had huge competitiveness in highest ranking, where Huawei and Samsung fought harder than ever.
The innovations like screens without frames at affordable prices, more advanced dual cameras and processors accompanied by artificial intelligence ruled 2017. However, following new year now we have to look forward next 12 months regarding new releases and surprises that are concerned.
So, we took the opportunity to collect 8 most anticipated smartphones that will see during 2018.
1. Samsung Galaxy S9
As every year, Samsung again to star in the headlines with its new commitment to high-end. The Galaxy S9 be the first to break into the market in 2018, and its launch is scheduled for next March. Still, this Korean duo takes to be one of the most anticipated several months ago.
Today already have a pretty clear idea of what we see in the Galaxy Unpacked 2018, where the Galaxy S9 and S9 + will be announced to the world, similar to that of the current generation design, some improved specifications.
2. Xiaomi MI 7
The successor to the current Xiaomi Mi 6 is one of the choices expected in 2018 after maintaining its position in top ten has the best value for money, going to compete squarely with the best high end of the year.
However, the Mi 6 has hardly been relevant during the second half of 2017, since its design could not compete with phones that do have joined the new fashions frameless screens.
And that is precisely why we look forward to the new Mi 7: It is unknown whether Xiaomi decided to adopt a similar appearance Mi Mix, or new redmi 5 and 5 Plus. Anyway, it seems that finally enjoy a phone “Mi” series with a design in keeping with the times.
3. Huawei P20
Huawei, which this year could change more than just the name of its flagship for the first half. Which, initially, was known as Huawei P11, now it could land on the market as Huawei P20, and as the first clues, would be focused to provide a unique photographic experience, thanks to a host system consist of three signed sensors by Leica.
Although, it is very likely that design will receive a facelift compared to previous generations, thus following the new trend debuting next to Mate 10. Hopefully, yes that the rumors are not true, and the P20 does not copy distinctive features of the iPhone X.
4. New Sony Xperia
After several years starring losses, 2018 could be the year of Sony, which signed again be the brand that one day rubbed shoulders with leading representatives of Android.
Japanese finally abandon the design lines OmniBalance that debuted in 2013 alongside with the Xperia Z, to make way for a more modern look where the screen frames have no place. This, coupled with a repertoire of the complete specifications, and the great level support software that Sony used to offer, encourages us to be optimistic the arrival of the new high-end Xperia.
5. Google Pixel 3
Although its beginnings have not been free of controversy, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have managed to become two of the best phones of 2017 for many reasons. The most important is that they are phones that every lover of Android should have, and this second generation of Pixel has made it clear that Google has come to the market to stay.
However, Google could take a significant step forward in 2018 with his family of smartphones.
6. LG G7
After a disappointing LG G6, intended to sneak into the top of the market in 2017 with a processor 2016, the South Korean firm seeks to redeem himself from his mistakes with the new G7, which look more like the V30 that own G6.
The LG G7 continues to refine the design lines introduced by his predecessor, will be the first phone with LG iris scanner and will have a decent technical section of high-end of the new year.
7. Nokia 9
Rumors about the Nokia 9 began as the Finnish marked his return to the phone market. Since then, we have been collecting information on what promises to be one of the great 2018.
Nokia in September would be the first company phone under the shelter of HMD Global to adopt the latest phone trends, with a curved screen with little frames 18: 9 aspect ratio, construction of aluminum and glass. In the photographic section, not for two or three but four different cameras also one of its great attractions lie in the price.

It may be a mere curiosity, but do not lie if I say that many have wanted to see how Andy Rubin surprised us in 2018, after the first year of its startup, Essential, it has not been all good.
