Among all the variety of smartphone models, it becomes more difficult to stand out. Sophisticated users have already seen a lot. They will not be surprised by huge screens-waterfalls, the absence of “bangs”, perforation for a selfie camera and under-screen fingerprint scanners.
Glass, metal and ceramics – all this was already there, as were the camera blocks – round and rectangular. What will we see interesting in smartphones with the best design of 2020, have the developers managed to offer us something worthy of attention? It looks like yes.
Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro
The Mi 10T Pro has managed to stand out among its brethren, and you can hardly argue with that. The smartphone really looks very stylish and strikes the eye – first of all, thanks to the matte back cover made of glass.
The unusual matte finish gives a slight gradient impression, although the lid itself is made in a mono shade. At the same time, glass is very similar to ceramics. What else should be noted is the unusual, very interesting looking camera block and flat screen, which seem to be back in fashion again.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro
Getting into the rating and a high place in it for this model is not surprising. Yes, in it you will see a large curved screen with an oval window for a dual front camera and a body made of a tempered glass enclosed in an aluminium frame, which is standard for 2020 flagships. And yes, it looks typical. But here’s the camera block.
It was he who became the highlight of the model due to its original form. The cameras are located in a black ring on the back of the case. It would seem that we have not seen all kinds of forms, but this is definitely the first time, and it looks exciting.
Lenovo Legion Phone Duel
Gaming smartphones always look bright and often come with the backlight that gamers love. But that’s not what the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel impresses. The developers used a very original design solution in the model’s design – they placed the retractable front camera not in the upper part of the case, but on the side.
This unconventional idea is intended to make it easier for gamers to stream gameplay, mostly in landscape mode. The main camera is also located not in the usual upper corner, but the rear panel centre. Again, this is a design decision related to gaming – so that your fingers do not cover it while using the gadget. And all this together looks cool, you must agree.
Apple iPhone 12 Mini
The design of this smartphone has become, in a way, a return to the ideas of Steve Jobs: the screen and body are made of flat glass, an aluminium frame surrounding them. No curvature, everything is laconic and strict. The device is also compact and easy to use with one hand, which has long become a rarity in the era of huge phablets.
Another plus is the variety of body colours, among which red and mint stand out.
Realme 7 Pro
If the front panel and screen of realme 7 Pro look familiar and do not offer original design solutions, then the back cover of this device is just the opposite. It is made of matte material and is visually divided into two parts, refracting light differently.
Due to this, an overflow effect occurs with a change in shades, making a charming visual impression, making the smartphone stand out from the crowd.
