Worth the Wait: 2018 Mobile Phone Releases

While a new mobile phone will most likely be at the top of many Christmas wish list’s this year, it might be worthwhile to wait a few more months to get your hands one of these new mobile devices releasing during 2018. While there probably aren’t many people super giddy to get their hands on the new Nokia 9, we suspect that there are many excited buyers for the new Samsung Galaxy S9, the Huawei P11, and the LG G7! Which will you choose?

Huawei Mate 10 Pro

The new Huawei Mate 10 Pro goes on sale towards the end of November, so this is one mobile device which you can definitely add to your Christmas wish list! Huawei has been referring to the Mate 10 Pro as an ‘intelligent machine’, as opposed to a smartphone, and it’s easy to see why. The device runs the Kirin 970 processor, has 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and has a 6” 18:9 OLED screen, USB-C, and dual rear cameras.

Nokia 9

While the Nokia 8 is currently on sale, most users are awaiting the announcement of the Nokia 9 which is said to be the more exciting of the two. We should however see a dual-camera, perhaps a 13Mp with a separate RGB and monochrome sensors, and a 13Mp front-facing camera may also make an appearance. The Nokia 9 was expected to be an upgraded version of the Nokia 8 with a larger 5.7” 18:9 display, an extra 2GB of RAM, but early leaked images show a standard 16:9 display.

The LG G6 hasn’t been available for very long, but already there are rumours that the G7 may be unveiled as early as the January 2018 Consumer Technology Assocation’s CES Tradeshow. This would be a smart move on LG’s part as it offers them a fantastic head-start against major rivals such as the Galaxy S9. LG is apparently already working with American multinational semiconductor and telecommunications equipment company Qualcomm and it’s rumoured that the G7 will be the first with their new Snapdragon 845 processor.

Huawei P11

While very little is currently known about the Huawei P11, it’s tipped for February’s Mobile World Congress, and it set to become the successor to the company’s current flagship, the P10. The P11 will most likely, in common with the Mate 10, have the Kirin 970 chip which Huawei claims to deliver 25 times better CPU performance and 50 times greater energy efficiency. It is also rumoured that Hauwei will be doing away with the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Samsung Galaxy S9

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are expected to be the biggest of the 2018 mobile phone releases as Samsung continue to perfect their winning formula. Most likely to be new in the S9 and S9+ are the 7nm Snapdragon 845 or 8nm Exynos 9810 processor, dual-lens rear cameras, as well as fingerprint scanners embedded into the Infinity display. We may finally see Samsung go above the 4GB of RAM of the previous flagships and we’re hoping for a January 2018 release to compete with rumours of early rival releases.
