Pixel 3, OnePlus 6T, and more – Every phone launching in October 2018

OnePlus 6T leak render dual camera WinFuture New phones get launched every month of the year, but it looks like the October 2018 smartphones are going to be something else. Not only are we seeing six major launches in the span of only a few weeks, but some of those devices are the most highly anticipated releases of the entire year. The biggest release of them all is obviously the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL, but we’ve also got some heavy hitters from OnePlus, LG, Samsung, and more. These launches are not only for smartphones: the events will also likely be launching pads for accessories and other products. All of these companies are hoping that by releasing devices in October they’ll have a better shot at getting your holiday shopping money. If you plan on spending some cash on smartphones or smart gear in the next few months, you’ll want to go into October with a good idea of what to expect. With the list below, you can get the basics of what October 2018 smartphones are on the way and prepare accordingly! October 3 — LG V40 ThinQ Leaked press renders of the LG V40 ThinQ. MySmartPrice The LG V40 ThinQ is going to be the latest cream-of-the-crop smartphone from the South Korean company. Traditionally, the V-series of LG smartphones are even more advanced (and more expensive) than its flagship G-series, and it looks like the V40 ThinQ will uphold that tradition. Editor's PickLG V40 specs leaked, launching early October Slashleaks The LG V40 specs have been leaked in full and the successor to the LG V30 looks set to once again please audio fans while skimping on a few important features. Android Authority … The most notable aspect of the V40 is that it will likely have a triple-camera set up on the rear — a trend that started earlier in 2018 with the release of the Huawei P20 Pro. However, unlike the P20 Pro, it’s also possible that the V40 will have two front-facing cameras as well, which would make the V40 the first phone to market with a total of five lenses. Along with the camera features, the LG V40 ThinQ is expected to have all the major bells and whistles of the V-series, including the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, a Quad DAC for high-quality audio, and more.

MySmartPrice HMD Global just sent out invitations for an October 4 Nokia event, but it’s not clear what the company has in store for us. It is slightly possible that it could finally unveil the long-awaited Nokia 9 with its rumored five rear cameras. Editor's PickDigital Wellbeing hits Nokia 7 Plus, the first non-Pixel device to get it If you own a Nokia 7 Plus and have the latest beta version of Android 9 Pie installed, you can now access Google's Digital Wellbeing suite of tools to help curb your smartphone use, via … However, it’s far more likely that Nokia will bring us the Nokia 7.1 Plus, the upgraded version of this year’s well-reviewed Nokia 7 Plus. We’ve already got some leaked info on the device, including some images which you can see above. It’s rumored that the Nokia 7.1 Plus will feature Android One, which will mean a stock-like Android experience as well as (hopefully) very fast updates. Since the Nokia 7 Plus was a part of the Android 9 Pie beta program, that all certainly makes a lot of sense. Of all the releases on this list, this is the one we know the least about. Stay tuned for October 4 to see what HDM Global has in mind! NEXT: Is this the Nokia 7.1 Plus? New render shows display notch, Zeiss-branded dual camera October 9 — Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Of all the devices on this list, none has had more of a rollercoaster ride this year than the Google Pixel 3 XL. Months before the scheduled unveiling of the latest flagship from Google, a black market seller pawned off dozens of prototype versions of the Pixel 3 XL, letting the world see pretty much everything there is about the device. Editor's PickWhat to expect from Google’s Pixel 3 hardware event this October Google’s now annual hardware event for 2018 is finally official! In New York on Tuesday, October 9, the search giant will show off a new range of products dreamt up by the Made by Google … However, the vanilla Google Pixel 3 still has a bit of mystery to it, as prototypes don’t seem to have leaked nearly as badly as the 3 XL. That all being said, the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL will likely feature the best camera in the industry, if we assume that it only improves on the industry-best camera on the Google Pixel 2. It will also likely feature the latest flagship specs, including a Snapdragon 845, and will most likely finally bring wireless charging to the Pixel line. Along with the Pixel 3, Google is expected to launch a new smart display and 2-in-1 touchscreen Chromebook. The company could have some more surprises up its sleeve as well, but we’ll have to wait until October 9 to find out. NEXT: Google Pixel 3 — All the rumors in one place October 10 — Razer Phone 2 Razer Phone 2 Leaked Render Android Headlines The original Razer Phone launched to much fanfare in 2017 as the first smartphone geared specifically towards gamers for gaming. Since then, other companies have either launched or said they will launch their own gaming phones, but the Razer Phone is definitely the OG when it comes to the modern gaming phone trend. All in all, the Razer Phone was a solid piece of hardware, with some incredible specs (hello, 8GB of RAM!) and a more-than-reasonable price. However, reviews were lukewarm for the phone, mainly due to its abysmal camera (which Razer has since made much better through software updates). Editor's PickRazer Phone 2 specs appear in the Google Play Console, evidence of a Chroma app Razer ignited new interest in smartphone gaming when it announced the Razer Phone. Now, a year later, the company plans to keep that momentum going by releasing a slightly updated handset. While we had a … From what we know so far, the Razer Phone 2 is going to be a slight tweak of the Razer Phone formula and not a wild overhaul. In fact, the leaked images we’ve seen show a device that looks nearly identical to the original Razer Phone. If you look up above, a leaked render of the Razer Phone 2 is on the right and the original Razer Phone is on the left. Look quickly and you likely would think they are exactly the same. One of the bigger changes to the device will likely be the introduction of Razer Chroma lighting effects to the smartphone. It’s not yet totally clear how Chroma will be integrated into the phone, but it will certainly make Razer fans happy to see one of the company’s most distinctive features come to the gaming phone. NEXT: Razer Phone 2 — All the rumors in one place October 11 — Samsung Galaxy A device(s) Samsung Galaxy A7 Samsung We know for certain that Samsung will launch at least one smartphone on October 11, but we don’t really know which one. The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018), which is pictured above, just got unveiled, but Samsung may use the October 11 event to launch it in more countries. However, the announcement of the October 11 event heavily suggested that Samsung is unveiling a smartphone with four cameras — and the Galaxy A7 (2018) has three rear sensors, not four. It could be that Samsung is counting the front-facing camera as well, which would suggest that it meant the 2018 A7. Editor's PickSamsung hints Galaxy A phone with four cameras is coming next month Samsung has announced that it will unveil a new Galaxy phone at an event on October 11. While we don't know for sure what Samsung is planning, the "A Galaxy Event" title suggests a new Galaxy … Potentially though, it could be that Samsung is launching another device on October 11 in tandem with the 2018 A7. We don’t know for sure. Either way, the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) is looking like one of the most exciting mid-range devices the company’s released in years. The triple camera setup is obviously exciting (especially for a Samsung mid-ranger) and Samsung’s commitment to no-notch displays will make the A7 a hot commodity for people who want a reasonably priced, notchless phone with great photo capabilities. NEXT: Looks like we won’t have to wait for the Galaxy S10 for a triple camera Samsung phone October 16 — Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro XDA-Developers The Huawei Mate 10 Pro was our favorite smartphone of 2017, and from the way things are shaping up, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro could be a major contender for the 2018 prize. We haven’t seen too many physical leaks of the Huawei Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro yet. The render you see above for the vanilla Mate 20 gives us an idea of what to expect, but we haven’t seen anything at all for the Pro variant, which could look different. Editor's PickFull-resolution Huawei Mate 20 wallpapers leak, download them now The Huawei Mate 20 launch is just around the corner, with its announcement pegged for October 16. If you want to get a feel for Huawei’s flagship ahead of that date, however, now you can … That being said, we do have some good info about the features of the Mate 20 line, most notably the expected launch of the Kirin 980 processor, which will be the first 7-nanometer chipset in an Android device. This could potentially make the Mate 20 the fastest and most power-efficient Android phone on the market when it launches on October 16, as all the other flagships on this list are expected to ship with 10nm chips. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 are also expected to have triple rear cameras, like the Huawei P20 Pro. Huawei has been teasing the alleged square arrangement of the camera lenses and flash for a bit now. We also are fairly certain that the Mate 20 will feature wireless charging, which is great since the Mate 10 has a glass back but curiously didn’t include the feature. We also suspect that you’ll be able to use the Mate 20 to wirelessly charge other devices, like the upcoming Huawei Freebuds 2 Pro. NEXT: Huawei Mate 20 — All the rumors in one place October 17 (Rumored) — OnePlus 6T OnePlus 6 vs OnePlus 6T render WinFuture To be clear, we are not 100 percent certain that the OnePlus 6T will launch on October 17, but we have leaked evidence to suggest that that is the date, and we are definitely certain that the device will launch at some point in October 2018. The OnePlus 6 is one of the most successful devices in the company’s history, selling a million units faster than any previous device as well as being the top-selling device in India for a time. The OnePlus 6T will likely be another huge success for the company, as it will introduce some new features (most notably an in-display fingerprint sensor) and — for the first time ever — launch in T-Mobile stores in the United States. Editor's PickBrace yourselves: The OnePlus 6T will not have a headphone jack Just shy of a year ago, OnePlus' CEO Pete Lau took to the company's official forums to reassure fans that the 3.5mm headphone jack was an essential part of offering the "best flagship experience possible" … However, OnePlus fans were dismayed to find out that the OnePlus 6T will not have a headphone jack. OnePlus is one of the few companies that held onto the jack for a long while, even mentioning on stage during the OnePlus 6 launch that it still believes in the jack. The silver lining though might be that with the headphone jack gone, the OnePlus 6T might finally get an official IP rating for dust and water resistance. No matter what, the OnePlus 6T is shaping up to be one of the most exciting smartphones of the year, which is especially noteworthy when you see the other brand names on this list.
