September marks the start of 'new phone season' with manufacturers battling to build hype for their latest device. Despite an eventful 2020, this year is set to be no different.

But with so many new phones due to be released, retailers usually heavily discount older models to make room for new stock. So whether you need the latest model or you're more concerned with snapping up a bargain, now is the perfect time to start your search.

Top new picks

Nokia 7.3 5G

Release date: late 2020

This latest addition from Nokia should bring another affordable 5G phone to the market. As with all new releases, rumours are easy to come by. It's looking like this handset will have new Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 Platform. 

It's likely that this phone will retail under £400 and should have an impressive camera and battery life for the price point.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Fan Edition

Release date: October/November 2020

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will reportedly replace the Galaxy S10 Lite as Samsung's more affordable line-up. The new handset will likely be powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor, the same as the Galaxy S20. Meaning people can get a significant discount for a similar premium experience. 

The retail price isn't known yet but sources estimate around £750. As the iPhone 12's main competition, it will be interesting to see how they both compare on price and performance.

Apple iPhone 12

Release date: September/October 2020

Apple usually announces its latest handsets at the start of September, but launch may still be delayed due to the manufacturing challenges of Covid-19. Nonetheless, Apple is expected to stay true to form and launch both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro at the same time. It's rumoured that 5G will be included in this iteration and a 120Hz display. 

Rumours on price have been varied but expect something in the £700-£1,200 range.

Best of the rest

Apple iPhone 11 64GB

iPhones will always be a popular choice and this model is the most popular pick of PriceSpy shoppers. Released last year, this latest model has dropped by around £100 to £630 and will give users the full iPhone experience without the £1,000+ price tag of the upcoming iPhone 12. If you’re not in a rush, wait until the iPhone 12 is officially launched as this could drive the price of this model even lower. 

Operating system: Apple iOS 13

Screen size: 6.1 inches

Release year: 2019

Samsung Galaxy A51 128GB

The A series is one of Samsung’s best mid-range phones. With a 6.5 inch OLED screen, you get a great screen for the price and this model comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor. However, look under the hood and its mid-range Exynos chip lets this model down and justifies the lower price tag. Unless you're a heavy mobile phone user, the difference won't be worth the extra £200 price tag.

Operating system: Android 10 (Android Q)

Screen size: 6.5 inches

Release year: 2020

Motorola Moto G8 Power 

This is the 15th most popular phone on PriceSpy and the most popular phone that isn't from Apple or Samsung. If you are trying to avoid the big two players and want a decent performance for under £200, then this a great choice. Motorola has really invested where it matters with this device. It has a great battery length, triple rear cameras, and it looks smart. 

Operating system: Android 10 (Android Q)

Screen size: 6.4 inches

Release year: 2020
