Outlook for 2021: What cell phone innovations await us this year
Despite the ongoing global corona pandemic, customers’ desire for new cell phones has not diminished. Also this year you can be sure that the well-known manufacturers will come up with new devices.
Samsung has already launched its current Galaxy S21 range. The largest competitor of the South Korean group, Apple, will present its new smartphones in the old fashion in autumn, which will most likely be named iPhone 13.
Huawei remains self-confident despite the Google ban, and new smartphones from the Chinese company can also be expected this year. After Huawei did not present the latest models in March, as usual, rumors of a release in May are growing.
To make it easier for you to find the new cell phones from your preferred manufacturer, we have put together a clear list of the most important manufacturers and the models that await you in 2021.
Apple: iPhone 13
Apple fans are looking forward to autumn. More precisely, September. Because the leaks for the new iPhone 13 indicate that the new Apple smartphones will appear in the early autumn of this year.
The wildest rumors about device components are circulating in the leaker community. However, a change in the display can undoubtedly be expected. The first design leaks have been circulating on the Internet for some time.
Overall, it can be seen that the new iPhone is expecting a minor facelift. One speaks of a narrower notch or even a punch hole in the retina display. After the successful establishment of the four-person team, it is to be expected that the following models will also appear in the 13-series.
iPhone 13 Pro Max
iPhone 13 Pro
iPhone 13 Mini
Google: Pixel 5a and Pixel 6
With its pixel models, Google could also make a name for itself in the form of end devices in the smartphone world. It is all the more annoying that Google has confirmed that the successor to the mid-range model 4a, the Pixel 5a, will not make it onto the German market.
So the question about the Google Pixel 5a is answered. But what about the Google Pixel 6? We can look forward to that in this country too. It is already clear that the Google Pixel 6 will be the first model with a specially developed Google chip. Google expects better performance through the chip.
The Google Pixel 6 will be on the shelves from autumn. We include it in the following list since the Pixel 5a will still be available to you via detours.
Huawei: P50 and Mate 50
The Huawei P50 should find its way into department stores and online shops in March, and now it is assumed that it will be released in May. Due to the persistent differences between the Chinese smartphone manufacturer and the American mega-corporation Google, Huawei’s new mobile phones do without Google services.
Much information about the hardware has not left the company, but it can be assumed that a super-fast charger will be included in the scope of delivery.
It is also to be expected that the camera performance has been adequately increased again. The following list shows in which versions the new models are to be expected.
Mate 50 Pro
Motorola has been a cell phone manufacturer from the very beginning. Cell phone innovations from American manufacturers can also be expected in 2021. Upgrades of the popular mid-range models are mainly in a discussion. But there are also voices claiming that Motorola is planning an attack on the flagship market.
Motorola has always offered solid smartphones, and we trust the manufacturer to hold their own even in the high-price sector.
A look at our list of 10 Motorola cell phones that will be available this year shows that the traditional manufacturer has been hardworking.
Moto G10 Power
Moto E7 Power
Moto G Play
Moto G Power
Moto G stylus
One 5G Ace
Another veteran in cell phone history speaks out. Nokia is still a name to watch for in 2021. The Finnish manufacturer plans to bring a flagship model onto the market at the beginning of the summer, marketed under the Nokia 10 PureView.
There is talk of the Nokia 10 being wrapped in high-quality stainless steel. For an attack on Apple and Co, Nokia brought Zeiss, one of the best-known manufacturers of high-quality photography optics, onboard for the camera sensors. We are excited to see if the Nokia 10 will make it into our top 10 best cell phone cameras.
The high-end model is said to be one of the currently fastest Pro.
