Given how quickly smartphones are evolving, there is always something new on the horizon. As soon as the latest phone is spotted, anticipation for the next big thing builds. We take a look at the unreleased cell phones in 2023. This list will be updated regularly with device rumours that we believe are intriguing and genuine.
1. Apple iPhone 15
There aren’t many reliable rumours floating around about the iPhone 15 right now. The film is scheduled to be released in September 2023. The eye-catching Dynamic Island notch, in our opinion, should be included in entry-level iPhone 15 devices. In addition, we’d like to see 8K video recording because, well, why not, and a periscope zoom camera to compete with the powerful Galaxy S22 Ultra’s lossless 10x optical zoom.
2. OnePlus 11
The newest “flagship killer” arrived in China in January, but the rest of the globe had to wait until February to hear details like price and availability. OnePlus 11 information is already widely available, though. It will be one of the first handful of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 smartphones, including a high-resolution AMOLED display and three back cameras with the Hasselblad brand.
3. Google Pixel Fold
The enigmatic Pixel Fold comes to mind. Depending on whom you question, you’ll get a variety of answers. The Pixel 6 is rumoured to be bendable. Others predicted that a distinct Pixel Fold device would be released before the end of 2021. According to the most recent source, Google will not release the Fold, at least not in its current version.
4. Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5
It would be a pity for Samsung to end with the Galaxy Z Fold 4, given that it is the company’s best folding phone to date. And it’s highly improbable that they won’t. Because of this, we’re excited to see what the Z Fold 5 has in store. There aren’t many rumours flying around right now. We’d like to see a slimmer design, rapid charging, and an integrated S-Pen to take advantage of drawing and doodling on its enormous unfolded display.
5. Thinkphone By Motorola
Although it may be quite specialised, Moto believes that its most recent product will be well received in the business community despite not being available for general purchase. The midrange Moto Edge 30 Fusion shares its camera arrangement and top-tier specs with it, but the specialised enhancements to Android that make it simpler for IT departments to remotely access them may help it find a home.
6. Vivo X90 Pro
Although Vivo isn’t well-known in the UK, it has been working with Zeiss on remarkable photography projects for many years. The X90 Pro is the first smartphone with a 1-inch main camera sensor that we’ll see in Great Britain; it dwarfs those on the majority of other smartphones. Power is provided by a MediaTek Dimensity chip, which can successfully compete with Qualcomm’s top products.
7. Mate XS 2
According to reports, the company will release the inward-folding Mate X3 after the outward-folding Mate XS 2 in the summer of 2022. The target date was meant to be December 2022, however, that has yet to be confirmed. It is expected to be stronger and lighter than its predecessor.
8. Oppo Find X6 Pro
The Oppo Find X6 Pro, which is set to ship in early 2023, will be one of the first smartphones to feature the Snapdragon 8 gen 2 architecture. Leaked renderings show four new matte pastel colours, as well as a prominent circular camera housing in the centre of the phone’s back.
9. Xiaomi 13 And 13 Pro
Xiaomi, like OnePlus, has already made the first models in its 2023 flagship range official—at least in China. Although we are still waiting for a global launch, new phones could be available by the end of February 2023, just in time for MWC in Barcelona. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU powers both the 13 and 13 Pro, which offer 120Hz refresh rates and excellent triple camera setups. Keep checking back for updates on the global launch.
10. Pixel G10/Pixel 7 Ultra
The Pixel G10 is a bit of a mystery gadget not because all we know about it is that it’s in production and will have the same screen as the Pixel 7 Pro. Her unannounced Pixel smartphone surfaced following rumours of the Pixel 7a series. Even though the Pixel G10 has been discovered, it appears that no one completely understands what it is. We’re not sure, but it should have a large 6.7-inch QuadHD display, similar to the Pixel 7 Pro. It might potentially be the Pixel 7 Ultra.
