From ever-shrinking bezels to dual rear cameras trickling down to budget devices, smartphones have changed dramatically in 2018. And things are set to change even more as we enter 2019.

Expect a lot of foldable phones like the FlexPai from Royole (pictured here), with Samsung finally gearing up to unveil the foldable phone it's been prototyping for years. Flattening smartphone sales are also catching up with Apple, which could come out with new iPhones in the fall that are more of a departure from the relatively iterative iPhone XS and XR. Meanhwile, device makers and wireless carriers are racing to bring the first 5G phones to the market just as networks based on the new connectivity standard start coming online this year.
