The 10 Coolest New Phones Of 2021
CRN picks the 10 coolest smartphones of 2021, which includes premium models with adaptive refresh rates, telephoto cameras and even improvements in new form factor types.
120Hz Refresh Rates, Form Factor Improvements And More
This year saw the launch of several new smartphones that are setting the new standard for premium devices when it comes to displays, cameras and battery life, among other areas.
Out of the dozens if not hundreds of phones to come out in 2021, CRN has selected the 10 coolest new phones to release this year, and the group includes new standout models from Apple, ASUS, Google, Kyocera, Microsoft, OPPO, OnePlus and Samsung. Many of these phones feature refresh rates of 120Hz, and multiple models also sport telephoto cameras in addition to wide and ultra-wide cameras for greater photography freedom. One even promises the ability to shoot and display 1 billion colors.
While most of them continue the tried-and-true form factor of a single, continuous screen, a couple of them are offering improvements in new build types, like the dual-screen assembly of Microsoft’s Surface Duo 2 or Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3, which combines the company’s folding screen technology with the flip phone form factor of yesteryear.
