New year, lots of new phones!
With 2017 finally upon us (hurrah!), there’s probably just one thing on your mind. New year, new phone, am I right? If you’re thinking of upgrading your current device in 2017 to get something a little more up-to-date, you’ve come to the right place.
From the next Apple iPhone to a possible comeback from everyone’s beloved Nokia, there’s a whole host of smartphones hitting the stores this year. So what are the best new phones coming up in 2017? We take a look at just seven that you should get excited for!
Upcoming Phones 2017 Overview
- LG G6
- Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 edge
- HTC 11
- Nokia P1
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8
- iPhone 8
- Microsoft Surface Phone
Rumoured release date: February – April 2017
First up, let’s take a look at LG G6! Since LG G5 was announced in February last year and released by April, it would make sense that the brand’s next flagship device would follow the same pattern. Still, some rumours suggest that we could have the smartphone as early as March.
Much like the recent Samsung Galaxy S-series phones, LG G6 will likely feature a VR-ready platform and a super-fast wireless charging system. The latter feature means that users will be able to charge their phones to 50% power in just 30 minutes. That’s certain to come in handy whenever you forget to charge your phone overnight.
What’s more, like most of the Android phones on this list, LG G6 is set to have a state-of-the-art Snapdragon processor; the latest upgrade on the market. But unlike a lot of 2017 flagships, it’s not likely to be getting rid of the headphone port just yet.
