Huawei P20 Pro

Huawei is set to make a huge splash in the smartphone market with the Huawei P30 Pro, but that's a handset that won't be available for Australians to buy until mid-April.

Huawei really kickstarted its premium camera phone ambitions with the Huawei P20 Pro, and the benefit of its successor coming to our shores is that there's loads of scope to score a bargain on what is still an exceptional handset.

Samsung Galaxy S9

Like Huawei, Samsung has a new shiny handset to spruik in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S10. It's a superb performer with a very nice camera and the benefits of Samsung's "One UI", but that's also a feature you'll find on the Galaxy S9. Being 2018's Samsung flagship means that there's also a decent quantity of bargains to be grabbed.

Google Pixel 3

We're hearing rumours all the time about a new lower-cost Google Pixel phone, but little in terms of concrete detail. It seems likely that if Google does go down the "lite" route for its Google phones ahead of the expected release of the Pixel 4 later this year, it'll do so with a slower processor and lesser camera features.

While the Google Pixel 3 only has a single rear camera, its use of some very smart algorithms means that it punches way above its weight when it comes to photography, even in low light. Combine that with the very latest Google Android updates and a compact design, and you're looking at a great handset choice.
