5 Best Smartphones To Look Out For In 2019

Many people say 2019 was a great year for smartphones, on the other hand, some people don’t share the same opinion. The question is, will 2019 be much better? Well, upon what’s coming, that might be possible. Let’s take a look at the best 5 smartphones set to launch in 2019.

OnePlus 7

Leaks are quick to come out with teasers of the OnePlus phones before its official release scheduled as we already have a fair idea about the next OnePlus phone, which is the OnePlus 7. According to rumors the OnePlus 7 will have a 5G mobile internet (although some it is not the phone with the 5G-ready device OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has promised, as that’s going to be another release entirely) and may use a pop-up front camera to free up even more screen space.

We are anticipating an incredible experience with the OnePlus as it is set to be launched in spring.  OnePlus 7 is likely to be priced at $300 more than the previous OnePlus phone’.

Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus

The Galaxy S10 it will set the tone for Samsung’s 2019 phones as it is set to launch in March. According to analysts, the Galaxy F might be the future of smartphones phones one day, but until then the Galaxy S10 and S10 plus will be the phones to beat. However, rumors have it that Samsung 10th generation flagships have three to choose from this year.

Stories also have it that, there could even be 5G connectivity. Samsung S10 and S10 plus are said to have rear cameras as well as Snapdragon 855 power and in-display fingerprint sensors, and it is also supposed to be the two most expensive models. We hope all rumors are true as Samsung debut the S10 on February 20 at their event in San Francisco.

iPhone 11 and 11 Max

iPhone lovers are expecting a fantastic thing from iPhone 11 as the iPhone XS, and XS Max were significant upgrades. Apple likes to surprise their customer as they keep things covered until probably September.  The leaks and renders going around seems too good to be true, but if the iPhone 11 indeed includes a pop-up camera module, a TouchBar display on its side and an iPad Pro-like stylus, then we are in for a thriller.

Ming-Chi Kuo who is an analyst stated that the future phones may still have the dual-camera lens setup and probably ditch 3D Touch. According to him, that will keep the price down. Reports have it that Apple could grab advanced 3D cameras from Sony to obtain gesture control in games, sophisticated room scanning capability and more.

Sony Xperia XZ4

Sony announced to launch its Sony Xperia XZ4 in March as the company still felt far behind its competitors in 2018. The company is determined to overcome every struggle in staying as an essential brand in the phone industry. However, Sony was not bad last year with an OLED screen and a price far less expensive than some of its competition, in the Sony Xperia XZ3.

The Sony Xperia XZ4 is said to be bold with its screen tech again, and use a 21:9 aspect display without a notch making the phone debatably the most “cinematic” phone to date, as it is close to the 2.39:1 anamorphic standard.

LG G8 ThinQ

LG’s G7 ThinQ was a good smartphone and was very solid, but it lacked some extraordinary features. Therefore, everyone is anticipating the G8 ThinQ to be the flagship that will turn-heads and standout. The LG G7 ThinQ had an ultra-wide rear camera which was good, but recently several phones have both a zoom and a wide camera.

Is entirely unclear what the G8 ThinQ which is supposed to be launched in May has or is but a Korean report suggest a foldable phone, others also believe it has a double screen where the second screen is attached to the phone. The render shows a more conventional approach, though that version could incorporate a Sound on Display feature that removes a visible earpiece from the phone’s display.

Samsung Raises the Game with The New Galaxy Note 20 to Rival iPhone 12 and Pixel 5

Samsung Raises the Game with The New Galaxy Note 20 to Rival iPhone 12 and Pixel 5

While other notable phone manufacturers are trimming prices amidst the pandemic, Samsung seems to be raising the bar even higher. In February alone, the Korean electronics company debuted three high-flying flagship phones each of which fell within the price range of $999 to $1,399. This is actually quite unexpected since other major competitors in the tech industry are cutting down prices on gadgets; such as Apple’s 5G iPhone 12 possibly maintaining the same price tag of $849 as its 4G predecessor – iPhone 11

In the same light, Google is deemed to be producing its latest version of the Pixel flagship – Pixel 5, with even cheaper processors to effect a price reduction lower than $700. Microsoft on the other hand is expected to slash a whopping 25% off of the Surface Earbuds, same as Apple’s AirPods prices and Pixel 4 getting a $50 price reduction. Evidently, these are only a handful of the ripple effects that the COVID-19 outbreak brings to the tech space, subsequently, the global economy.

In spite of the economic downturn that has forced most tech companies to rethink their launch price – and possibly postpone the launch dates, Samsung seems to be taking even bolder steps. How the Asian gadget-making company is responding to the current market slide is actually mind-boggling. Considering that the company is set to launch its Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 Plus at a very exorbitant price compared to what other competitors in the market are selling for. 

This is hardly surprising since Samsung has taken greater steps to upscale, which is evident in the new features present in the Galaxy Note 20 series – such as a backplane LTPO OLED display tech and the rumored 4300mAh battery size, while others are running short on manufacturing supplies and production deliveries. Based on historical data and given the current situation, we should expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series to be priced well above $1000. However, the big question here is; will consumers be willing to part ways with such amount of cash for a phone that promises an extensive battery life in juxtaposition to much cheaper rivals, with less durable battery life?

SpaceX– Elon Musk’s aerospace company, just launched two NASA astronauts into space. SpaceX is a privately owned American aeronautic manufacturing and space exploration technologies corporation, founded sometime in 2002 with the primary intention of revolutionizing space technology and promoting the emigration to mars through reduced space transportation cost. SpaceX group, an enterprise spearheaded by one of the most innovative minds of our times, has introduced a new age of human spaceflight in the United States. The project codenamed ‘Crew Dragon Mission’ was the second attempt by the company to launch spacemen into the orbit, over the last two decades – as the first attempt from three days ago was canceled a few minutes before take-off due to stormy weather.

This most recent development is part of NASA’s Artemis program. It comes as a relish to NASA and SpaceX since the automated spacecraft manufacturer was sanctioned by NASA barely two weeks ago to develop a lunar optimized Starship that would transport its crew between the lunar orbit and the surface of the moon. The two astronauts involved in this record-breaking venture are; Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley – both of whom are NASA veteran space travelers.

NASA astronauts Doug and Bob lifted off circa 15:22 UTC on Saturday, 30 May 2020, from Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island, Florida – which happens to be the same launch pad used to send the Apollo astronauts to the moon fifty years ago. Notably, the launch of the SpaceX aero flights – Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon crew capsule, from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center to the International Space Station (ISS) marks the first time in 9 years since a spacecraft has been launched from American soil and also the first time a private company has done it.

The NASA astronauts have successfully arrived at the International Space Station. In attendance to witness the event in Florida was President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and the SLOTUS – Karen Pence of the United States of America.
