It’s been almost half of 2020, and in the last six months, a variety of phones have hit the market; Phones with fifth-generation mobile Internet support and multiple cameras and large screens. However, many of the leading brands in the mobile phone industry, such as Apple, have not yet introduced their 2020 models. Nevertheless, it is a great opportunity to both look at the situation of the introduced phones and take a look at future phones.
This year, the main focus of smartphone makers was on the fifth generation camera, display and internet. Due to Corona’s outbreak, the Mobile World Congress was canceled and smartphone makers were forced to unveil their new products in the form of online events. It is worth mentioning that this conference was usually held in March. In addition to regular emails from Samsung, Huawei and Xiaomi, this year Apple introduced the second generation of its low-cost handsets, the iPhone SE, after four years.
In addition to all this, in the remaining half of this year, we expect other exciting phones such as the Galaxy Note 20 and iPhone 12 to be introduced. So join intozoom to take a brief look at the best phones of 2020.
The best Introduced Phones of 2020 Yet
Samsung Galaxy S20
This year, Samsung introduced three different models of the Galaxy S flagships: the base model called the Galaxy S20 without the extension and the Galaxy S20 Plus and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The Korean company has laid the groundwork for the Galaxy S20 series, and there is almost no specific technology in the world of mobile phones that you can’t find on these phones. Some of these technologies include: metal body with the latest generation of Gorilla Glass resistant and anti-glare glass, along with quality displays with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, the latest version of Android, Samsung’s most powerful processor, 8 to 16 GB of RAM, excellent speakers, fastest internal memory, internal memory Stereo and the most complete communication technologies and fast charging technology.
As we said in the review of the Galaxy S20 and the review of the Galaxy S20 Ultra, all three models offer more or less the same experience for their users. The superiority of the ultra-high-end model goes back more to the size of its camera, and for most users, buying a base model is enough.
2. Sony Xperia 1 Mark II
First of all, you should know that you probably won’t find Sony’s very attractive flagship in the Iranian market; Because it is only available in a limited number of specific markets, such as the United States and Japan. However, the Xperia 1 Mark II is priced at $ 1,200. Beautiful and stretched design with the best raw materials, which is the signature of Sony’s flagship phones, can also be seen in the Xperia 1 Mark II.
Sony’s new flagship is one of the few phones on the market that has all the features together; From the memory card slot to the 3.5mm headphone jack, stereo speakers, waterproof body, pure Google Android, wireless charging, manual camera settings, etc., that’s all a smartphone user needs. Experience all of these features on the OLED and 4K displays, which are among the best among smartphones.
Perhaps this Sony phone is one of the few products in the list of the best phones of 2020 that does not have a 90 or 120 Hz display and is very fast charging; But overall, it offers one of the best experiences with smartphones.
3. OnePlus 8 Pro
It is very unlikely that you will find a list of the best phones that do not have the name of OnePlus products. There are many reasons for this. Although the company launches a limited number of phones every year, they are all among the best in the mobile world. That’s why OnePlus can become one of the most popular and lovable smartphone manufacturers.
Launched in late April, the OnePlus 8 Pro is one of the best smartphones currently; Of course, it also carries the title of “most expensive VanPlus phone.” The OnePlus 8 Pro meets all the expectations of the flagship phone at the best level; From wireless charging to 5G internet support and a wide display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Also, unlike the Galaxy S20 with the Samsung-made chip, the OnePlus 8 Pro uses the powerful Snapdragon 865 chip, which performs better.
Of course, keep in mind that it is very unlikely that you will be able to find the OnePlus 8 Pro in the Iranian market; But if you manage to do this and you don’t have a problem with its high price, you can be sure that you will not regret buying it.
4. Xiaomi Mi 10 / Mi 10 Pro
Another phone on the list of the best phones of 2020 is the new Xiaomi flagship May 10. Launched in the last days of February last year, the May 10 is not only the best Xiaomi phone; It is also one of the most expensive phones of this Chinese company.
The May 10 was unveiled in both regular and Pro versions, with the Pro model having a more powerful camera, a larger battery, a faster charger, and more storage. Apart from these features, the other parts of both phones are the same. The May 10 and May 10 Pro both feature a high-quality body, a curved, wide display with a 90 Hz refresh rate, a powerful Snapdragon 865 chip, the latest version of Android, a 108-megapixel camera, and wireless fast charging.
While there isn’t much difference between the May 10 and the Galaxy 20 in terms of hardware specs, the May 10 has a cheaper price tag that makes it affordable for a wide range of users. The Xiaomi Mi 10 is both one of the most popular flagship phones at the moment and one of the best phones of 2020.
5. iPhone SE 2020
In 2020, Apple finally unveiled a new generation of low-cost iPhone SE after four years. Of course, keep in mind that cheap words are completely different from Apple and users. To buy the cheapest model of this phone with 64 GB of storage memory, you have to pay $ 400. However, if you don’t want to buy a second-hand phone and are a big fan of Apple’s dual-core phones, the iPhone SE 2020 will be your only choice.
In short, the iPhone SE 2020 is in fact the iPhone 11 in the body of the iPhone 8; So in terms of processing power, it’s not unrealistic to call it the fastest phone in the world right now; Thanks to the powerful A13 processor and less display pixels, the iPhone SE 2020 is a very powerful product.
Of course, if you skip the extra power of the phone and its software support, you’ll have to deal with the old design, the thick bezels around the display, the average battery charge, and the poor camera performance at night.
6. Huawei P40 Pro / P40 Pro Plus
So far this year, the Huawei P40 Pro is the latest flagship to be introduced, which can definitely be on the list of the best phones of 2020. The question that may arise is: How can this phone, which does not have any Google services and has many restrictions on running various applications, be included in this list? The fact is that if you can handle the limitations of Android without Google’s services, the P40 Pro and its more expensive model, the P40 Pro Plus, will easily be among the best phones of 2020.
If you look at the DxOMark website, you’ll see that the P40 Pro currently has the best camera of any smartphone in the world. The P40 Pro and P40 Pro Plus use a large number of cameras with 8 to 50 megapixel sensors to deliver the best performance in a variety of user situations. Not only can these cameras capture the best photos of all phones; They also offer many features, such as 10x optical display.
Apart from the camera discussion, the other specifications of these two phones are also very exciting. The 6.58-inch OLED displays with 90 Hz refresh rate, powerful Crane 990 chip, large amounts of RAM and 40 watts of storage and fast charging memory are just some of the specs.
The P40 Pro Plus, also considered Huawei’s most expensive flagship, comes with a ceramic body and a larger camera and 40-watt wireless charging compared to the P40 Pro.
The Best 2020 phones that haven’t been introduced yet
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 / Note 20 Plus / Note 20 Ultra
Undoubtedly, the Galaxy Note 20 is the most exciting Android phone to be introduced in 2020. Official and confirmed information about this phone has not been released yet, but as usual, many details about it have been leaked. Like the Galaxy S20, the Galaxy Note 20 series will likely be available in three regular versions, Plus and Ultra. Of course, it is possible that along with the three phones, the second generation of Galaxy Z-Flip or Galaxy Fold will also be introduced.
The Galaxy Note 20 must continue the successful path of the Galaxy Note 10, and for this purpose, all the exciting features and capabilities of the Galaxy S20 will definitely be added to it. All three models will be unveiled at Samsung’s virtual event in September. According to rumors, the Galaxy Note 20 series will feature widescreen displays with QHD Plus resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate, and Snapdragon 865 or 865 Plus chip, and will naturally support 5G communication technology. According to other rumors, the Note 20 Ultra will be the most expensive member of the family, with a 108-megapixel camera, a 5,000mAh battery and a 6.87-inch display.
Also, according to some rumors, there will be no big difference between the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 except for the Espen pen. However, experience has shown that the Galaxy Note series is one of the best on the market, and the Galaxy Note 20 will definitely be one of the best phones of 2020.
IPhone 12 / iPhone 12 Max / iPhone 12 Pro / iPhone 12 Pro Max
Obviously, the list of the best phones of 2020 will not be complete without the iPhones of 2020. Every year a lot of information is leaked about iPhones before they are unveiled, and this year we are seeing a lot of rumors. The most important component of the new iPhones will be their evolving design, which after three years, Apple will abandon the design language of the iPhone 10 and use a new language. This new design is very similar to old Apple phones like the iPhone 5.
The iPhone 12 will likely be available in four models: the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Max, the iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The screen size of these four phones will be between 5.4 and 6.7 inches. Other rumors suggest that all four versions have OLED displays; But the Pro models display are equipped with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Support for 5G communication technology is also one of the features we’ll probably see in the new iPhones.
Huawei Mate 40 / Mate 40 Pro
Although the next generation of Mate series phones will be launched without Google services, we can’t ignore its appeal and capabilities. The phone will be available in two versions, regular and Pro, in the fall. Of course, like the Mate 30, they may never enter global markets and you may not be able to buy them at all. Most likely, these two models will be offered at a price similar to the Mate 30 series, which is $ 880 for the Mate 40 and $ 1,200 for the Mate 40 Pro.
According to leaked information, future Huawei flagships will be equipped with the Kirin 1020 chip. The five-nanometer chip will likely be unveiled in the coming months before the introduction of the Mate 40 series. Also, the Mate 40 will be the first Huawei phone to feature a 120Hz display and a new camera equipped with a 108-megapixel sensor. Of course, it is not clear whether this sensor is used in both versions of the Mate 40 or only in the Pro model. Apparently, Huawei will use the Free-Form lens for its flagship super-camera, which prevents image distortion. Another important issue to consider is the limitations of the Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro in running various applications.
Asus Rag Phone 3
Although mobile gamers are usually ranked lower than computer gamers and game consoles, the mobile gaming industry is one of the most serious and lucrative industries in the tech world. This issue is not hidden from mobile phone manufacturers, and they are trying to offer products for those who are interested in mobile games from time to time.
One of the most popular gaming phones that has made a lot of noise over the years is the Asus ROG Phone. You probably know the ROG or Republic of Gamers brand, which is one of Asus’ subsidiaries that produces gaming-specific products.
Next month, Asus is likely to introduce the third generation of ROG Phone handsets, the ROG Phone 3. This product is supposed to be the fastest smartphone in the world; Because of the overclocked version, it uses the Snapdragon 865 chip. The 120-inch 6.59-inch display, 6,000mAh battery, a maximum of 1TB of internal storage and 16GB of RAM are just some of the key features.
In addition to the above-mentioned phones, all of which have been confirmed, there are other phones that are not yet available, or news or rumors about the specifications and date of their introduction. For example, Xiaomi is unlikely to unveil a new flagship of the Mi Mix series, and Google has not yet mentioned the Pixel 5 series.
In your opinion, which is the best 2020 phone? Do you think the outbreak of Corona virus will affect the introduction of new phones?
