The smartphone market has been quiet lately. However, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the market is currently gearing up for some spectacular products which are scheduled to be released in the coming months. In the following article, we would be reviewing five of the most anticipated smartphones.
Undoubtedly, the iPhone is set to dominate the wish list of many consumers worldwide. However, many critics have recently reviewed the sales of the iPhone to be dropping which has made Apple reconsider the units it will be shipping this year around. The slumping of phones to be shipped is occurring the first time since the inception of the device. This means that Apple would be releasing a conservative device this year around withholding the revolutionary technological leaps for the 10th Anniversary edition release which is scheduled for 2018. Regardless, the phone will have some changes such as the removal of the headphone jack and the inclusion of a dual camera system.
The successor of the Galaxy S range, Galaxy S8 is scheduled for an early 2017 release and rumors have indicated that the phone would be equipped with a 4K display. However, the rumor about 4K displays has been around for a while with all Samsung top-end phones without it coming to fruition. Sources in China have however, indicated that the phone would have a dual camera system and virtual reality will take center-stage with the upcoming device. Flexibility is another thing that is being whispered about the upcoming phone with Samsung aiming to introduce three models to cater to different consumers.
Even though, Nokia has struggled to establish a significant presence in the smartphone market. However, things are expected to go in Nokia’s favor with the release of C1, a device which will have both, Android and Windows variant. The phone is expected to bear a full HD display, coupled with eight and five-megapixel cameras. Nokia is intending to market its devices to the masses and is expected to keep the price tag at $299.
OnePlus, a modest company that established itself as a flagship killer has a new project in the pipeline. It is being rumored that the new device is already in the testing phase and would be out in the first quarter of 2017. OnePlus 4 would feature a Quad HD display with the design getting an overhaul. Rumors have also suggested that it would feature a curved display with the expandable storage slot designed to accommodate up to 256 GB.
The latest Google phone would be brought out before 2016 draws to a close. Recent reports have hinted that Google will rebrand the Nexus series to Pixel and the phone will be unveiled on October 4. Reports have mentioned the phone to come in multiple variants running Android Nougat and exclusive Google features. It is also being stated that the phones would place key emphasis on Virtual Reality. Google will certainly try to bring out their best as the company has failed to garner a high reputation in the smartphone market despite making big achievements in other avenues.
