Flagship phones are pretty much the best at everything they do. They have great display panels, powerful cameras, fast performance and sleek looks. Even though they may cost more than entry-level or mid-range smartphones, flagship phones are synonymous with zero compromises.
If you’re thinking of buying your first flagship device, there are a number of options already available from all companies, but what if you could wait a little more and get more bang for buck? Here are some of the upcoming flagship phones that you may want to save up for.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3
One of the most anticipated launches of the year, Samsung is set to launch its new flagship folding device as well as a new flip phone. These will succeed the brand’s Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip. The new Galaxy Fold is expected to feature a 7.6-inch AMOLED display with a secondary 6.2-inch screen on the outside. The phone could be powered by the Snapdragon 888 chip and is expected to come with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB storage.
