2020 is going to be the breakthrough year for the gaming industry – after all, both Sony and Microsoft are set to release new consoles this year
From Apple iPhone 12 5G, Samsung Galaxy S11+ to Sony PlayStation 5, here is a list of best gadgets coming in 2020.
2020 has only just begun, and there's already an incredible line-up of devices waiting to be announced at CES in Las Vegas next week. But as the year progresses, we are going to see many new devices from the biggest tech companies including Apple and Samsung.
Below is a list of devices likely to grab headlines this year. But, this is not the end. These devices might be released with different names and there could be some other devices as well.
Apple iPhone 12 5G
It's pretty clear that Apple will launch the next iPhone at its fall event. The biggest question is what exactly the so-called iPhone 12 would bring new to the iPhone line-up. Early reports hint at an all-new design, removal of the notch, an ultrasonic TouchID sensor, and 5G connectivity. There's even the possibility of a fourth lens, most likely a time-of-flight sensor, on the back of the top-end iPhone model for improved augmented reality experiences.
Microsoft's Surface Neo and Duo
Microsoft's Surface Neo and Duo won't hit retail shelves before the end of the year, but they have already made us excited about dual-screen devices. For Microsoft, the devices represent a new era for a company that lost the smartphone war to Google and Apple. A lot is riding on Microsoft, because both the Neo and Duo are aimed at creating a new product category altogether. The Duo runs Android, but isn't exactly a smartphone, while the Neo is a cross between a laptop and tablet.
Samsung Galaxy Fold 2
When Samsung launched the Galaxy Fold at the beginning of last year, it created a multifunctional foldable device that was more than a smartphone. Despite the not-so-positive reviews of the original Galaxy Fold, Samsung seems committed itself to create the next-generation Galaxy Fold, which many believe will be out as early as next month.
Based on leaked renders and images, it appears the Galaxy Fold 2 will be a clamshell-style foldable phone with a punch-hole notch, similar to the Galaxy Note 10.
Sony PS5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X
2020 is going to be the breakthrough year for the gaming industry – after all, both Sony and Microsoft are set to release new consoles this year. Sony has already announced that its next console will be called the PS5, while Microsoft will launch the Xbox Series X.
The two consoles will have high-end specs, and nearly identical promises including the ability to play games up to 120 frames per second at 4K resolution, and even play games at 8K resolution. The consoles will also include faster SSDs and hardware-accelerated real-time "ray tracing."
Samsung Galaxy S11+
The Galaxy S11+ flagship is rumoured to sport a 108MP sensor with 5x optical zoom and 9 in 1-pixel binning. There are already phones with a 108MP camera, but Samsung is putting a large image sensor on a flagship smartphone. That's unheard of in the industry, where flagship phones stay away from the megapixel war. This strategy could either work in Samsung's favour or completely backfire, depending on the performance and image quality of the new 108MP sensor.
OnePlus Concept One
More than the OnePlus 8 series, we are excited about the brand's first concept smartphone ever, which will be shown off at a special event at CES 2020 in Las Vegas on January 7 and will last until January 10. If OnePlus manages to show us a concept smartphone with a never seen design, it will be a victory for the brand.
