The year 2022 has come and we expect great things from smartphones this year.
We have already seen a lot of excitement. While the Samsung Galaxy S22 series is already on sale, Oppo’s Find X5 series and Xiaomi’s 12 series have also been introduced.
Then, the OnePlus 10 Pro went on sale in China before the global release for this month was confirmed, and there is even a new phone from Apple in the iPhone SE. This is not to mention a new foldable list from Huawei, Honor and Oppo.
Most of these phones are equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, although this phone competes with the MediaTek Dimensity 9000, which is the first time that it meets the specifications of its competitor; How many big brands will make the leap from Snapdragon to the biggest releases of 2022?

The best new phones released in 2022
Foldable iPhone – 2022/2023
Rumors about a folding iPhone have been circulating since the first foldable display technology was available, but thanks to leaks and rumors, we have good enough reason to believe that Apple is working on at least one folding iPhone – perhaps years later.
Apple is rarely the first company to launch a new technology, but given that Samsung has already introduced several iterations of folding technology, there is a risk of looking back if Apple doesn’t do it by 2023 – but if it can improve the technology, it may be worth the wait.
Take a look at all the foldable iPhone rumors so far
October is Pixel season, so we expect Google to introduce the Pixel 7.
After a major overhaul of last year’s design, we don’t expect anything radical this time around, but patent documents show that it could be the year we adopt the company’s self-portrait camera with a second-generation Tensor chip.
Look at all the Pixel 7 rumors so far
The iPhone 14 may be a while away, but we have the first leaks about what to expect from the next Apple flagship.
The leaked images, provided by Jon Prosser, reveal the alleged end of the controversial notch – it has been replaced by a perforated camera, and the rest of Face ID technology is hidden under the screen.
The round volume buttons return, and the camera lens now fits the body – partly by thickening the phone itself.
It’s too far to know if the iPhone 14 will look like that, but that’s enough to excite us.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4
The Z Flip 4 is likely to bring a larger Z Fold 4, which will likely go on sale in August.
We don’t know much about what to expect, but the upgrade of the camera at the bottom of the screen is almost certain – and according to rumors, the same camera may appear on the phone’s external screen this time.
In addition to the usual technical features and camera improvements, there will be changes in the hinges and waterproofing.

Huawei Mate 50
Now that Huawei has introduced the P50 Pro around the world, fans are starting to look forward to the Mate 50.
Although these will usually go on sale in the fall of 2021, we now expect to see the Mate 50 phones in 2022. We expect it to go on sale first in China, the rest of Europe and Asia in a few months – maybe.
Not much is known about the features, but the 4G Snapdragon chipset with high-end screen and camera parts is expected to compensate for slower signal speeds

We don’t know when to expect this, but in 2022 Motorola will release an almost updated foldable Razr.
The success of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 almost guarantees that Motorola will take a new look at the foldable model with an iconic lid.
This will be the third foldable Razr (5G version after the original) and we expect to see a simplified design and improved features that make it a true flagship for Samsung’s offer.

OnePlus 10 Ultra
We don’t know if the OnePlus will produce the 10 Ultra, but that’s probably starting to show.
The company has never released an Ultra phone before, but there are many leaks about one of the things the company will boast of with its first periscope magnifying lens.
The parent company Oppo also promised a 150 W fast charge on the upcoming OnePlus – will it be Ultra?
Learn more about the OnePlus 10 Ultra
Realme GT Neo 3
Realme has confirmed that it is working on the GT Neo 3 and will launch the phone in the second quarter of 2022.
We don’t know much about the phone other than Realme’s confirmation that the phone will be equipped with a Dimensity 8100 chip and will have a new 150W wired charger that is fast enough to charge the phone to 50% in just five minutes.

OnePlus Nord 2T
OnePlus has not yet announced the Nord 2T, but rumors suggest it will go on sale in April or May.
As the name suggests, this will be an improved version of the excellent Nord 2 with possible upgrades to the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chip and 80 W of charging, but most of the other features will remain the same.

Asus ROG Phone 6
Asus doesn’t offer every ROG Phone in the UK – and sometimes they come as late as the latest ROG Phone 5s and 5s Pro – but we have a chance to get the ROG Phone 6 in the summer of 2022.
After all, we got the ROG Phone 5 on time, and most likely it will be a more meaningful continuation of that phone.
We’re not entirely sure what to expect – although the 360Hz touchscreen speed from the 5s series seems like a reliable bet. Otherwise, you can expect more innovations in design, such as the next-generation Snapdragon flagship chipset and the rear OLED display in the 5 Pro.

Unfortunately, not only in the UK and Europe, the Vivo X70 series is not widespread in Asia, but we hope that the company will keep its chances for the upcoming X80 series.
You can probably expect three main phones compared to previous generations: the X80, X80 Pro and X80 Pro +.
Initial leaks point to at least one MediaTek Dimensity 9000 combined with a 120Hz Full HD + display and a 50Mp gimbal stabilized main camera.

Google Pixel Foldable
It’s a bit of a joke, but leaked internal documents and code snippets indicate that Google is working on a Pixel-folding device. We thought it could start at the end of 2021, but now it is more likely to appear on Google I / O in May 2022, along with the general release of Android 12L.
Apart from the availability of the device, there have not been many leaks about what kind of folding device it will have or what features it will have, but we know that many people will be interested in this Pixel Google folding phone. camera.

Google Pixel 6a
Google is expected to replicate the usual patterns and launch a cheaper “a” version of the flagship Pixel 6 later this year – most likely in Google I / O in May.
Last year’s 5a was never released outside of the US and Japan, but the chip shortage was partly to blame, so we’re expecting a wider release this time around.
Expect the design to match the presenter set by the Pixel 6, but to a lesser extent – based on leaks – already rendered here in the rendering. However, the camera is likely to be connected to the equipment used in the Pixel 5a, but it should still be impressive in terms of price.

Sony Xperia 1 IV
The 1 IV will most likely be the company’s flagship with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and an improved camera system. The 5 IV will likely offer similar features to a smaller size, while the 10 IV should have a strong mid-level guard at a more affordable price point.

The X50 is rumored to be the next Nokia flagship we expect to see this spring or summer.
The solid specifications are weak on the ground, but the Snapdragon 7 series chipset points to a device at the bottom of the flagship line – some think the Pro model with an 8-series chip could also come.
Learn more about the Nokia X50
OnePlus Nord 3
OnePlus mocked the phone in the second quarter of this year with a 150-watt wired charger – and we think it’s the Nord 3.
The next OnePlus mid-range protector will feature a new Dimensity 8100 chipset and a larger 6.7-inch 120Hz display, as well as this improved charging feature that can fully charge in just 15 minutes.
With the Nord 2, 8Mp ultra wide angle and the same 50Mp IMX766 main camera as the 2Mp macro, the camera’s specifications aren’t expected to change much.

Red Magic 7 Pro
Nubia has already introduced Red Magic 7 in the UK, but the Pro will take some time in the 2nd quarter.
Both of these gaming phones have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and Nubia’s own Red Core 1 chip, which helps control some of the player’s unique features.
Both have 6.8-inch AMOLED displays, with high refresh rates and touch-selective speeds, and the Pro even has a camera at the bottom of the screen.
Read more about the Red Magic 7 series.
Xiaomi Poco X4 Pro
Xiaomi has introduced the Pro version of the Poco X4 series, and the Poco X4 NFC and GT are expected to appear at the same time.
The Pro has a 120Hz AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 695 chip and a 108Mp main camera, all of which are amazing design improvements from the rather thick X3 Pro.
Read the latest news here Xiaomi Poco X4
In 2021, the Poco F3 went on sale in March, so we hope that the F4 will also arrive in March 2022.
Most likely, it will be based on the Redmi K50 series, you can expect a Dimensity 7000 chipset, 100 W fast charging and IP68 water resistance rating.

Vivo has confirmed that the V23 and V23 Pro, which go on sale in India, will finally reach Europe.
The two phones share the same eye-catching gold design, which turns subtle turquoise when moving in the light, but has a very different structure: the V23 has straight edges similar to the iPhone, while the Curved Pro is a more traditional Android phone.
Both use MediaTek chipsets, 90Hz displays and triple rear cameras – giving you both a high-quality 50Mp main selfie camera and an 8Mp ultra wide with dual selfie shots.

Honor has introduced the Magic 4 and Magic 4 Pro at MWC 2022, with plans to release them soon in the UK and Europe – we don’t know the exact date yet.
The two phones are large and powerful, with 6.81-inch displays, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chips and high-quality triple camera settings. 4 Pro is even more interesting thanks to the fastest 100 W wireless charging you can find on any phone.

Xiaomi has finally released the Xiaomi 12 series internationally, and the phones will arrive in the UK in April.
The Xiaomi 12 is an unexpectedly compact phone with a 6.28-inch display, but still equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, a powerful triple camera and super fast power storage.
The larger 12 Pro has better camera setup and faster charging speeds, while the cheaper 12X is the same size as the 12, but falls short of the old Snapdragon 870 and eliminates the wireless charging option.

Samsung Galaxy A33
The Galaxy A33 is a cheap and fun Samsung phone that looks really nice and has been on sale since April 22nd.
Slightly cheaper than the A53 for £ 329, it only offers a 90Hz screen and some small camera drops. But you will still get excellent price stereo speakers, IP67 waterproofing and a powerful chipset, plus three-year Android version updates.

Samsung Galaxy A53
Samsung has updated the mid-range series with the Galaxy A53, which will go on sale on April 1, but is now ready for pre-order.
The chipset update, a larger battery, and 5G are key changes to last year’s A52, but that means it still has great features like IP67 waterproofing and stereo speakers – a £ 399 rarity on the phone.
Put aside Samsung’s promise of four-year Android updates, and it looks like a phone that easily surpasses the iPhone SE.

OnePlus 10 Pro
The next-generation OnePlus flagships have now arrived in China – although the global launch was confirmed in March – and so far, at least, we are only familiar with the Pro model.
The top-tier 10 Pro has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and a new camera module design along with an improved battery and charger – although no improvements have been found since last year.
Read more about OnePlus 10 Pro
Oppo Find X5
Oppo has unveiled the Find X5 series, which goes on sale in the UK on March 24 – but pre-orders are now open.
We previously reviewed the Find X5 Pro with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Hasselblad camera and beautiful display – all in an unusual curved ceramic design.
While the Find X5 database combines many of the same features in a more traditional design, rumors have it that the Find X5 Lite is actually a repackaged Reno 7 – it still looks like a solid and affordable option.
Read more about Oppo Find X5.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
Samsung has not confirmed that it is working on another Z Flip, but it looks like a reliable bet that someone is working on it and it will be released in August this year.
Rumors point to a device of a similar size, but Samsung is probably trying to lighten it while improving the hinge and further enhancing the IPX8 waterproofing.
