Apple iPhone 14 to Google Pixel 7: A look at flagship phones


 Look at the top flagship phones we are yet to see launch before the end of the year.

This year has already seen a number of brands launch their top-end ‘flagship’ phones. These include the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series, the iQOO 9 Pro and the Realme GT 2 Pro. However, the second half of the year is when the competition gets more intense, especially Apple introduces its iPhone series.  And given that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ has been announced, a number of Android flagship smartphones will also make an official appearance before the end of the year. These new phones will come with better performance, improved camera capabilities and more. Here are the flagship phones we are yet to see in 2022.

Apple’s iPhone 14 series

Apple’s annual update to the iPhone lineup is set to take place in September this year. The iPhone 14 series is expected to drop the ‘mini’ variant and shuffle the lineup with a new iPhone 14 Max variant. We are still expecting four phones from the company. The lineup will include the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone Pro Max.  This time the lineup will include two 6.1-inch variants and two 6.7-inch options. So yes, the iPhone 14 Max will have a bigger display just like the Pro variant, though it might not come with some of the features seen on the Pro option. The Pro series will obviously be much more expensive.

With the iPhone 14 series, Apple is expected to introduce other changes as well. It is rumoured to that Apple last year’s A15 chip on the non-Pro variants which would be the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. Only the Pro variants will get the new A16 chip, along with other differentiators like support for Always-On Display. Some of the features such as the notch-less display could also be limited to the Pro options.

Google Pixel 7 series

The Google Pixel 7 series was revealed back at Google I/O this year as a surprise reveal, months ahead of its actual launch, which is set to take place sometime this fall. While we don’t know much about the phone except for the new design, Google is expected to put in a new Tensor-series chip in the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. A recent leak also reveals that both the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will feature the same 11.1MP front camera sensor that was on the Pixel 6 pro, giving both devices the 6 Pro’s highly-rated front camera video quality along with 4K recording support. More details on the Pixel 7 series are expected to surface in the next few months.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, Flip 4

Samsung is expected to update its lineup of foldable phones this year with the successors to the Galaxy Z Fold and the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Not much is known about the new foldables yet, but we expect Samsung to continue its trend of offering flagship-level features on the foldables along while improving the durability of the hinged designs with each generation.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 are expected, as per leaks, to launch in August this year, although there hasn’t been any official confirmation on the same from Samsung.
