Do not care a lot in regards to the new iPhones? Good. There are a ton of latest Android telephones popping out this October, and a few are promising to be a much more fascinating than Apple’s mildly upgraded flagships.
First, on October Three, LG will launch its triple-rear-camera V40 flagship. Six days later, we’ll get new Pixel telephones from Google. Razer is probably going about to launch a gaming-related cellphone simply sooner or later later, on Oct 10. After which Samsung has a mysterious Galaxy occasion on Oct. 11.
And Huawei will launch its Mate 20 flagship on Oct. 16 — doubtless the second triple-rear-camera cellphone to be launched in a month.
That is already a powerful lineup, however it’s fairly attainable that we’ll see a number of extra cool telephones in October. Let’s dig into the small print.
LG’s smartphone division hasn’t made cash in years, however, beginning with the LG G6 and the LG V30, it has been producing telephones which are truly fairly nice.
With the LG V40, the corporate may also have a world’s first on its arms. In its promotional supplies, LG strongly hinted that the cellphone may have a triple rear digicam. Rumors say it is going to even have a twin selfie digicam, and whereas we have seen each options on telephones earlier than, no main producer has had each on the identical system.
The twin-camera techniques on earlier LG telephones have been fairly good, so there’s cause to imagine that the LG V40 would be the cellphone with one of the best cameras to return out this yr.
Specs-wise, the LG V40 is rumored to have an OLED show, a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, and as much as 128GB of storage. Google’s Android 9 Pie will doubtless be on board, and LG’s ThinQ tech will improve the cellphone’s digicam and different options with the assistance of AI.
There aren’t too many secrets and techniques left to share about Google’s upcoming Pixel Three and Pixel Three XL telephones. Each gadgets have been leaked left and proper, so we all know the smaller Pixel Three may have a notchless display, whereas the bigger Pixel Three XL may have a notch on prime (each may have a large chin and Google’s typical two-tone design on the again).
The 5.5-inch (or thereabouts) Pixel Three will doubtless have a single rear digicam and twin selfie cameras, in addition to a 2,915mAh digicam. The Pixel Three XL will doubtless have a 6.2-inch display and the same digicam setup (one on the again, two on the entrance). Each telephones are more likely to sport a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.
Additionally, over the weekend, Google launched a teaser web site which signifies the cellphone will are available in three colours: Black, white, and mint inexperienced.
Essentially the most fascinating side of Pixel telephones is rarely , although — it is software program. Android is Google’s playground, and the corporate usually introduces utterly new options collectively on the Pixel gadgets. Count on surprises, particularly within the digicam division.
Razer has bravely squeezed its occasion between Google and Samsung occasions, however given how busy October is, the corporate did not have a lot of a alternative.
We all know subsequent to nothing about what Razer’s about to unveil, although the invite textual content — “Flagship // Gaming” — does point out that we’re about to see a followup to final yr’s gaming-oriented Razer Cellphone. Count on highly effective , distinctive gaming efficiency, and… perhaps a greater digicam?
This one is much more of a thriller than the Razer system; actually, we do not actually know it is a cellphone. The Notice 9 got here mere months in the past, and it is means too early for a Galaxy S system, that are sometimes unveiled in March.
Introduced with the tagline “4X enjoyable,” the occasion might convey us the long-awaited, oft-rumored foldable Samsung cellphone, however that is an enormous “if,” provided that the corporate’s CEO of cell, DJ Koh, lately had loads to say about such a tool, which may very well be unveiled pretty quickly.
It is equally as attainable that Samsung might be unveiling some kind of laptop computer, however because the Galaxy model has strongly been tied to telephones and tablets, we’re banking on a cell system.
Regardless of all the large names on the checklist above, Huawei’s upcoming Mate 20 would possibly develop into probably the most fascinating October launch. The corporate has been slowly, steadily constructing in the direction of this second, every of its flagships considerably higher than the final one. Its P20 Professional was the primary triple-rear-camera cellphone available on the market, and it is nonetheless among the many greatest.
The Mate 20 will doubtless have a refined model of that digicam, and it’ll even have Huawei’s new Kirin 980 chipset which the corporate claims is best than the Snapdragon 845 in a myriad methods. The remainder of the specs will doubtless be very sturdy: A 6.Three-inch AMOLED display, a Four,200mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and wi-fi charging are rumored. And Huawei sometimes launches multiple taste of its flagships; the Mate 20 Lite is already out, however we may additionally see the extra highly effective “Professional” and “Porsche Version” variants.
The maybes: OnePlus 6T, Asus ROG Cellphone, RED Hydrogen One
Amazingly, the checklist doubtless will not cease there. A number of extra telephones are scheduled for (or have been postponed into) the autumn, so that they’ll most likely launch both in October or November.
The most important identify on the checklist is OnePlus, whose 6T flagship is a extremely anticipated successor to the OnePlus 6, usually topped the king of reasonably priced Android telephones. Rumors say it will have a 6.Four-inch OLED display with a built-in fingerprint sensor, a Snapdragon 845 chip, 6/8GB of RAM, and 64/128/256GB of storage (sadly, it most likely will not have a headphone jack).
As for that launch date, the OnePlus 5T got here out in November, so it is honest to imagine the 6T will comply with in its footsteps. Nevertheless, there have been so many leaks, teasers, and bulletins associated to this cellphone that I would not be too shocked to see it a little bit earlier this yr.
We all know a lot of the particulars about Asus’ gaming-oriented ROG Cellphone — it is an absolute beast with plenty of fascinating tweaks and options aimed to reinforce your cell gaming expertise. What we do not know is precise date of availability or the worth, however there is a honest chance that we get them in October.
Lastly, there’s the RED Hydrogen One cellphone. Coming from RED, the corporate recognized for its high-end cameras, it is going to be considerably of an odd beast, with a singular, “holographic” display, (doubtless) a top-notch digicam and ageing specs. The cellphone is already very late to the market, so RED might be struggling to launch it as quickly as attainable. The cellphone truly has a Nov. 2 launch date, however that is just for the provider variant; pre-orders needs to be delivery on Oct. 9. Why are we placing this one down as a “perhaps,” then? Properly, it has been delayed a lot that we can’t imagine it till we see it.
