There will be two internal storage options – 256 GB and 512 GB. Like the other high-end smartphones, there will also be a fingerprint scanner. But it will not be a physical one. According to the recent report, an on-screen fingerprint sensor will be applied. The rumors on 92.9% screen to body ratio has strengthened the claim. The device is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor.
Upcoming Mobile Phone 2018 List: Asus Zenfone 5 Max
Asus has already sent invitations for its upcoming event, which is scheduled to take place at the MWC 2018.

Similar to the predecessor, the next-gen phone is very likely to feature a massive 5000 mAh battery and a dual-camera setup with an outstanding shooting ability. Following the trend of the other smartphone manufacturers, Asus might go for an almost bezel-less design with the Zenfone 5 Max, just like Apple did with the iPhone X.
Upcoming Mobile Phone 2018 List: Sony Xperia XZ Pro
Sony knows that it needs to bring an outstanding smartphone to compete against the Galaxy S9 strongly. According to the latest reports, the company will launch its new high-end smartphone, called Sony Xperia XZ Pro at the MWC with a view to creating a massive pressure on Samsung. The device will feature a near bezel-less design, a 4K OLED display and a 3,420 mAh battery. It will also be packed with the brand new Snapdragon 845 processor and 6 GB RAM, which will make the device incredibly powerful. For the shooting enthusiasts, there will be a dual-camera setup, which will be able to capture photos as stunning as Galaxy S9 and iPhone X. So, there will be plenty of things to be excited about.
Upcoming Mobile Phone 2018 List: Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S
Several months ago, a large number of reports claimed that the Xiaomi Mi7 would be revealed in February 2018. However, according to the recent reports, the Mi Mix 2S would be launched at the MWC 2018, not the Mi7. The successor of the Mix 2 will be the very first smartphone to feature the Snapdragon 845 processor. To allow you to take outstanding shots in the low night environment, Xiaomi will include the IMX363 camera sensor, along with the dual-pixel autofocus technology. So, the result will be absolutely fantastic. And the design will look quite similar to the iPhone X. But the price will be half of Apple’s flagship smartphone.
Upcoming Mobile Phone 2018 List: Motorola Moto G6
Motorola is rumored to reveal its new flagship phone called, Moto G6, at this year’s MWC. According to the recent photos surfacing throughout the web, it will have a display ratio of 18:9. As a result, it will be Motorola’s very first bezel-less smartphone. The device will sport a 5.7-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 450 processor, 3 GB / 4 GB RAM and 32 GB / 64 GB internal storage. For the selfie lovers, there will be a 16-MP front camera. And in the back, there will be a dual camera setup (12-MP + 5-MP).
Upcoming Mobile Phone 2018 List: Motorola Moto G6 Plus
As the name suggests, the G6 Plus will be the larger counterpart of the G6. It will have a slightly larger 5.93-inch display. It will have a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The device will have a significantly more powerful hardware than the G6 including Snapdragon 630 processor and 6 GB RAM. However, the mega pixel range of the cameras will be the same as the counterpart. The G6 Plus will be available in three different color options, including deep indigo, nimbus and dark lake.
Upcoming Mobile Phone 2018 List: Nokia 9
Recently, the images of the Nokia 9 has been leaked, which reveal several key information. The fingerprint scanner is shown to be placed below the dual rear camera. There is a cut out beside the LED flash, where a heart rate sensor is expected to be placed. The aspect ratio is 18:9. Earlier, a number of reports suggested that the Nokia 9 will feature the Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 GB RAM and Adreno 540 GPU. The device was claimed to feature a dual camera setup on both the front (5-MP and 5-MP) and the rear (13-MP + 5-MP). All these things have made it one of the most highly anticipated smartphones of this year.
Upcoming Mobile Phone 2018 List: Huawei P11
Huawei is rumored to release its next-gen flagship phone at the MWC 2018. It will be known as the P11. It will come with a 5.8-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels. The device will be packed with an extremely powerful hardware, including 3 GHz octa-core Kirin 970 processor and 6 GB RAM. So, you will be able to run all the latest games and apps with a stunning pace. However, we are really concerned about the rumors pointing to the inclusion of a 3,200 mAh battery. The capacity is not high enough for a 5.8-inch smartphone. But there is always a chance of seeing a much larger battery. We are still several days away from the MWC 2018. So, Huawei might decide to incorporate a better battery.
Upcoming Mobile Phone 2018 List: LG V30+ Alpha
Usually, LG refreshes its G-series lineup at the MWC. But this year, it is not going to do it. Instead, it will introduce an upgraded version of the V30, which was released last year. It will be called the LG V30+ Alpha. According to Korea Herald, it will feature several AI upgrades, including different Google Assistant based features. The Assistant’s Korean language service will also be updated. LG has decided to skip the launch of the highly anticipated G7 smartphone for a quite unique reason. It wants its already released premium models to exist in the market for a longer period. The move is quite different from the other smartphone manufacturers. So, it will be very interesting to see how the new strategy works in the coming days.
