Get ready for new phones

The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are already out, but the phone options don't stop there. Sadly, some of the most interesting phones won't come to the US, and others are still just whispers.

OnePlus 6

Price: TBA

Availability: TBA

What to expect: It's official, but we don't know when it's coming. OnePlus tends to announce its latest flagship phone in late spring or early summer, and with the OnePlus 5T currently sold out in some markets we're eager for its next phone. 

OnePlus 6 will have a notch.

Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact

Price: TBA

Global availability: April 2018 (through Amazon and Best Buy)

What to expect: Like Sony's other Xperia phones, the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact, come with some serious camera abilities like shooting HDR photos with 4K resolution and super slow motion video at 1080p resolution. The duo is pretty similar on paper, but the XZ2 Compact is smaller with a 5-inch display, versus the XZ2's 5.7-inch display.
