We’ve already picked the five exceptional phones you may buy right now. But what about what’s coming within the following few months? (I can’t believe it’s June already.)
This year has already visible the discharge of the Galaxy S8 and LG G6, excessive-quit smartphones which can be however a flavor of what’s to come. If you very own either of those gadgets, congratulations. You can’t cross incorrect with both.
However, the real party has but to get commenced. The Essential Phone turned into officially unveiled lately, even as OnePlus has showed the OnePlus five is coming June 20. And later this yr, we’re looking ahead to a few different big releases, consisting of the lots-anticipated iPhone eight, so one can celebrate the tool’s tenth anniversary.
Below is a list of smartphones we can’t wait to look released.
The rumors for the OnePlus five have come thick and fast. There have been such a lot of, in fact, that OnePlus executives have pre-empted the smartphone’s declaration to confirm a few specifications, inclusive of the truth that it’ll function a Snapdragon 835 chip. So, yeah, we comprehend it’ll be among the maximum effective gadgets while it launches—it’ll supposedly feature a dual digital camera setup, too.
If that doesn’t excite you, then not anything will. Unfortunately, the inclusion of the present day tech could probably pressure the OnePlus five’s price up. The OnePlus 3T (at $439) was the organization’s most high-priced smartphone but. All signs factor to the OnePlus five’s fee being even better.
To get a extra thorough idea of what to anticipate, test out our roundup of all the modern day rumors.
Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone is a big risk, but one that we’re very glad exists. Made of titanium and ceramic, the device sports a laundry list of high-end specs, from a Snapdragon 835 chip to a dual-camera setup.
But what really sets the Essential Phone apart is its take on modularity. Similar to what we saw from the Moto Z, the Essential Phone features a magnetic connector that makes it super easy to attach additional accessories. Among the first to support the feature is a tiny 360-degree camera.
The jury’s out on whether the Essential Phone will be a hit. But based on what we know, it’s prospects for success are looking good.
Galaxy Note 8
Imagine the Galaxy S8, but better. That’s what we’re expecting from the Galaxy Note 8 when it launches later this year. And, yes, Samsung will allegedly continue to support the Note line despite last year’s unfortunate Note 7 recall.
With the Note 8, we’re expecting Samsung to keep the Galaxy S8’s design mostly intact, including that gorgeous Infinity Display. One major difference may include a fingerprint sensor below the display, as well as a dual-camera setup. Of course, the device will also come with S Pen support.
When you put it that way, the Note 8 may be an early frontrunner for smartphone of the year. We still love the Note 7 despite the recall, hence the gallery above.
Google Pixel 2
Google’s first smartphone became a rousing success, but it came with lots of caveats. Its layout became mediocre, and it lacked high-quit functions like wi-fi charging, expandable storage, and water and dust resistance. Still, it changed into our favourite cellphone of 2016, specifically due to its digital camera.
Rumor has it Google will double down at the Pixel’s digicam and make it even better. The seek giant is likewise rumored to be running on 3 special fashions, that is high-quality through us. I believe one of these will characteristic an facet-to-aspect screen, twin-camera setup, and all the bells and whistles.
If Google can create hardware on the level of the Galaxy S8 even as supplying users with specific Android O functions, it’ll be tough to skip up.
This year will mark the iPhone’s tenth anniversary and, as such, expectations are sky-high. Can Apple deliver? It might if the rumors are to be believed.
The iPhone 8 is said to feature an edge-to-edge display, upgraded internal specs, a sleeker design, wireless charging, and more. Essentially, the device will take the groundwork laid by the Galaxy S8 and build its own super phone.
But here’s where the iPhone 8 could stand above the rest: Reports claim Touch ID will live beneath the 5.8-inch OLED display, while the phone is said to support advanced augmented reality features. Are you excited yet?
Bonus: Let’s not forget about the LG V30
We would be remiss not to mention the LG V30, which got the concept treatment recently. Clearly, the device has the potential to be a dark horse as this year’s most innovative device. If it even exists at all.
If LG can combine the ideas of the LG V20 with the LG G6, it could be on to something really great. Not much is known about the device just yet, but we’re sure LG is hard at work at coming up with its next dual-screen flagship.
