This is shaping up to be a pretty boring year for the smartphone industry, all things considered. We’re expecting it to be the calm before the storm considering all the exciting new smartphones slated for release in 2019, but that doesn’t make 2018 any more exciting for smartphone fans. The majority of the new handsets that have been released and that are slated for launch this year are embarrassing iPhone X clones. Phones that aren’t include Samsung’s lackluster Galaxy S9 and S9+, and the soon to be forgotten HTC U12+ that isn’t even being sold by any wireless carriers in the United States. Then Apple has three new iPhone models set to be released in September, but they’re all going to look just like the iPhone X. In fact, the most exciting new iPhone of 2018 will likely be the new mid-range model that offers the iPhone X’s design and features at a much more affordable price, but it’s not a flagship and therefore won’t really appeal to savvy smartphone fans.
When all is said and done, the most exciting and innovative new smartphone of 2018 will end up being the RED Hydrogen One, a novel and excessively expensive new phone that almost no one will buy but almost everyone will be intrigued by. If you’re one of the few people who plan to purchase one, however, you’ll be happy to learn that you can now pre-register for the handset on Verizon’s site.
