There has been rumors of Nokia 9 launching at the MWC and the smartphone is one of the most awaited smartphones of 2018. Nokia 9 will boast two 13 MP rear cameras, 128 GB of internal storage and will run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the Box. The device will reportedly come with a 5.5 OLED 18:9 widescreen bezel-less display and will run Snapdragon 835 backed by a 3250mAh unit. HMD Global hasn’t confirmed Nokia 9 yet, but as per the rumours, Nokia will launch at least two new smartphones at MWC 2018, and it could be either Nokia 1, Nokia 6 (2018) or Nokia 7 Plus.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5
Xiaomi may launch the Redmi 5 Plus as Redmi Note 5 in India. Xiaomi India has remained tight-lipped about their upcoming launches this year, but Xiaomi is launching something next month in India. The company has already launched Redmi 5 Plus in China, and Note 5 is still due. Rumours suggest Redmi 5 Plus will launch as Redmi Note 5 in India with a 5.99 inch full HD+ 18:9 display, 12MP rear camera, Snapdragon 625 in two storage variants – 3GB of RAM and 32GB onboard memory and 4GB of RAM and 64GB onboard memory backed by a 4000mAh battery.
One of the first big smartphone releases we expect to see in 2018 is that of the LG G7. Rumoured to arrive with the brand-new Snapdragon 845 chip, it would put the G7 ahead of the pack in terms of speed and performance
LG has had a few missteps here and there, with the G5 being the most significant, but when the Korean giant gets things right it can deliver some truly excellent hardware. Here’s hoping that the G7 is exactly that.
Future BlackBerry phones
BlackBerry maker TCL have announcement a new bronze version of the KeyOne, but in doing so, also confirmed that BlackBerry has plans for new phones in 2018. Not just one phone, two, in fact.
Beyond that, there’s very little information to go on. We don’t know what level they will be at and there’s been little talk of anything BlackBerry related recently, so this one is a mystery.
With Mobile World Congress incoming we might see BB back in the limelight.
Apple iPhone 9 and/or iPhone XI, iPhone X2
The iPhone X is a celebration of 10-years of iPhone. It’s also super-premium and expansive. But Apple has confirmed that this phone lays the foundations for the next 10 years of the iPhone and we suspect that the 2018 iPhone update will take a lot from the iPhone X.
There’s currently no knowing what Apple will call the new iPhone, but we suspect it will move from stainless steel back to aluminium to bring the price down, while retaining that 19:9 display and using Face ID rather than Touch ID in a home button. We’d expect Apple to offer a couple of sizes in this design, making some differentiation between the two as it does with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus currently. At the moment, however, there’s no evidence to say exactly what might happen.
We can expect the iPhone 9 to launch in October 2018 but there may also be an iPhone SE2, too.
Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ Pro
Sony churns phones more often than we have hot meals. Having announced the Xperia XZ1, XZ1 Compact and XA1, new rumours then appeared suggesting that Sony wants to change its smartphone design.
That’s big news, because we’ve essentially had the same OmniBalance design in Sony Xperia phones since the Xperia Z.
Now there’s talk of what we’re calling the Xperia XZ2. A render appeared that shows no bezel, as well as a spec sheet that details a 5.48-inch display with Full HD resolution, a Snapdragon 845 and twin rear 12-megapixel cameras, with a 15-megapixel camera on the front. There will also be a XZ Pro, we’re hearing, a replacemet to the Premium line of handsets.
