Top Smartphones to Watch in 2024: The Future in Your Hands

2024 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Smartphones! We’ve already seen the impressive Samsung Galaxy S24 lineup, especially the powerful Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra. But the excitement doesn’t stop there. We can look forward to more from Samsung, Google, OnePlus, and even the next iPhone.

Below, we’ve rounded up seven of the most anticipated phones in 2024, along with our best guesses for when they’ll hit the shelves.

Smartphones to Watch in 2024: iPhone 16

The iPhone 16 line is super exciting this year! There are four models expected: 

  • iPhone 16, 
  • iPhone 16 Plus, 
  • iPhone 16 Pro, and 
  • iPhone 16 Pro Max

But we’re really hyped about the iPhone 16 Pro Max.

It’s likely coming out in September, following Apple’s usual schedule. Leaks suggest it’ll be a big upgrade from the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which is already awesome.

The iPhone 16 Pro Max might have a slightly bigger 6.9-inch screen and a faster A18 Pro chip. Plus, it could feature a new ‘Capture’ button for taking photos and videos.

There’s talk about a ‘super telephoto’ camera for zooming even farther than the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s 5x zoom. And the ultra-wide camera might jump from 12MP to 48MP.

With all these improvements, combined with the great stuff from the iPhone 15 Pro Max, the iPhone 16 Pro Max could be the phone to get in late 2024.

Smartphones to Watch in 2024: OnePlus Open 2

OnePlus isn’t known for making many foldable phones. They’ve only released one so far, called the OnePlus Open. Surprisingly, it’s one of the best foldable phones out there. That’s why we’re really excited about the OnePlus Open 2 in 2024.

We don’t know much about the OnePlus Open 2 yet, but the original had big screens, a great design, and fantastic cameras. So, there’s a good chance the OnePlus Open 2 will keep or even improve on those features.

It’s likely to be a more powerful phone too, and we’re hoping for better battery life. We’ll probably learn more about it around October, since that’s when the OnePlus Open was released last year.

Smartphones to Watch in 2024: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 could be the most popular foldable phone in 2024, even though it might not be the absolute best. But there’s a chance it could be, or maybe the rumored Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra will be even better.

We’re not sure if there’s really an Ultra model in the works, though, and there’s not much info about it yet. So, for now, we’re looking forward to the standard Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6, which is definitely coming out.

Leaks suggest it might have a titanium frame, a larger cover screen than before, and a brighter foldable display. It’s also expected to have a more powerful chip.

Unfortunately, leaks say the cameras might not be any better than those on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5. But if there is an Ultra model, we hope the cameras will be upgraded there.

We might not have to wait too long for this one, though. There are rumors of a July launch, which isn’t too far off.

Microsoft Surface Duo 3

The next folding mobile phone in 2024 in the Microsoft Surface Duo line will be the Surface Duo 3. It will come with an updated design, making it different from previous models.

There isn’t much info about the Surface Duo 3’s features yet, but rumors suggest Microsoft will enhance the smartphone’s software for better compatibility with its Windows-based ecosystem. It’s also expected to support eSIM, like previous models.

The announcement is anticipated as early as spring 2024 at the major IT exhibition MWC in Barcelona.

Google Pixel 9 Pro

Our most anticipated non-foldable, non-Apple phone in 2024 is the Google Pixel 9 Pro. It’s expected to launch alongside the standard Google Pixel 9 in October. 

Based on past releases, the Pixel 9 Pro will likely be larger and better than the standard model. Leaks suggest both phones will feature a new design with flat sides and a different camera layout. The Pixel 9 Pro is rumored to have a triple-lens camera, a new Tensor G4 chipset, and possibly a new AI assistant exclusive to the Pixel line.

AI is expected to be a major focus of this phone, and like previous Pixel models, the Pixel 9 Pro could excel as one of the best camera phones on the market.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6

While the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 will be bigger and pricier than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6, it’s usually the Flip line that sells better. So, the Z Flip 6 might end up being the most popular foldable phone in 2024.

Leaks suggest the Z Flip 6, possibly arriving in July, will have a larger cover screen compared to the Z Flip 5, a bigger battery, and a smaller crease in the foldable screen. There’s talk of an upgraded 50MP main camera, but not all leaks agree on this.

Expect a power boost in the Z Flip 6, likely with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, similar to what’s in the Samsung Galaxy S24 line.

Asus ROG Phone 8

Some of the best upcoming smartphones in 2024 will include gadgets from a special line for gamers called ROG (Republic of Gamers). Earlier this year, Asus revealed the next generation – the Asus ROG Phone 8.

This gaming flagship boasts the most powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor yet. The Pro model offers up to 24 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of storage. While eSIM support hasn’t been confirmed, there’s a good chance it will be included.

The screen is impressive too: LTPO AMOLED matrix, 6.78 inches diagonal, FHD+ resolution, and 165Hz smoothness. Overall, games will run with incredible speed and graphics quality.
