The smartphone industry did not experience much excitement in 2022. This year’s smartphone technological advancements were extremely limited. The Nothing Phone was the technology I loved the most this year (1). I thoroughly admired the distinctive glyph design of the Nothing Phone (1) when I reviewed it.
In addition, I thought the designs of the Pixel 7 and the iPhone 14 Pro phones’ Dynamic Islands were okay. With the exception of a small number of these devices, phones introduced in 2022 were utterly uninteresting and lacked any new features. But it’s anticipated that next year will be a little bit different.
In 2023, a tonne of fascinating smartphone launches are anticipated. In the coming year, many new smartphones, including the iPhone 15 and the OnePlus 11, are anticipated to become official. In fact, unlike the iPhone 14, the majority of the anticipated smartphones, including the iPhone 15, are anticipated to be feature-rich and bring numerous innovations.
In fact, some rumours and leaks claim that all four iPhone 15 models will come with Dynamic Island, a feature that is currently only available on iPhone 14 Pro models. Here are a few smartphones we are eagerly anticipating, even though 2023 is predicted to be more interesting than the current year.
One Plus 11
The OnePlus 11 will officially launch in China the following week. The smartphone will arrive in India in February. The OnePlus 11 will be unveiled on February 7 as the company has officially announced. Because 2022 wasn’t a great year for the company, it’s possible that the OnePlus 11 will serve as its comeback product. This year, there weren’t many intriguing products from the brand, but with the introduction of the OnePlus 11, the company hopes to change that a little bit in 2023. The company has made some of the OnePlus 11’s most important details public in advance of the device’s official launch, including its design.
The OnePlus 11 will feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in its first smartphone and will also reinstate the alert slider. For the OnePlus 11’s cameras, the smartphone maker has also teamed up with Hassleblad. The OnePlus 11 will feature a curved design at the back with a circular camera module that looks much more elegant and premium than the OnePlus 10 Pro or even the OnePlus 10T.
Customers were let down by the lack of interest in the iPhone 14 model this year. According to reports, Apple may make changes to both the specifications and the design of products. The Dynamic Island display, which is currently only available on the iPhone 14 Pro models, is expected to appear on the iPhone models of the upcoming year. The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus may have different prices, according to some of the most recent leaks, and this is because the Plus model didn’t sell well. Additionally, it is anticipated that the iPhone 15 will be a much bigger upgrade than ever before because the iPhone 14 wasn’t a very significant upgrade over the iPhone 13.
Samsung Galaxy S23
Although the company hasn’t formally announced the date for the Unpacked 2023 event, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series is anticipated to go on sale on February 1, 29023. The Samsung Galaxy S23, Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus, and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra are three devices that the South Korean smartphone manufacturer plans to release under the series. Nearly all of the information about the Samsung Galaxy S23 has been leaked online before the launch. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor is anticipated to power the smartphone’s global model, while India will continue to receive the Exynos model. When compared to its predecessor, the smartphone is anticipated to offer better camera and battery performance.
According to leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S23 will have a 120hz screen refresh rate, a 50-megapixel triple rear camera system, up to 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. A 200-megapixel primary camera is anticipated for the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra’s back panel. None of these details have yet been confirmed by the company.
Google Pixel 8
Google launched its flagship Pixel in India after a long absence, which is why the Pixel 7 series has everyone in India buzzing. Even though Google only recently introduced the Pixel 7 series of phones, rumours about the Pixel 8 are already making the rounds online. According to a recent leak, the Pixel 8 camera will use a new HDR technique, allowing the following Pixel phone to take significantly better pictures. Already a fantastic smartphone with a superb set of cameras is the Pixel 7. A 50-megapixel dual rear camera system, Google’s Tensor G2 processor, and many other features are included in the phone. If Google continues the tradition, the Tensor G3 processor will power the following-generation Pixel device.
