The world of smartphones is ever changing. A few of these might be pushed to 2017 as well. We have included some really interesting smartphones in this list. We've got Samsung Galaxy S8, Apple iPhone 8, LG G6, HTC 11, Google Pixel 2, Xiaomi Mi6 and Nokia P1. Let us hop right in and check the launch dates of the much-awaited, most interesting and the best upcoming smartphones to come in 2017.

Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung's powerhouse flagship is much awaited by many. Unfortunately, it won't come at the upcoming MWC 2017 this month. According to a source, Samsung might unveil the Samsung Galaxy s8 at Samsung's next "Unpacked" event on March 29th. While the latter said that it would actually go on sale "on or around" April 21st.

Apple iPhone 8

Apple traditionally launches its latest iPhone in the first two weeks of September. A perfect time for the start of the Christmas shopping season. Also set for a 2017 release to celebrate the iPhone's 10th anniversary is the powerful iPhone 8.

LG G6

Last year's LG G5 announcement took place one day before Barcelona's Mobile World Congress technology tradeshow started. Rumors suggest that LG will unveil The LG G6 later this month.  The MWC show will run from February 27 to March 2, so we'd expect the LG G6 to be announced on Sunday and that would be February 26, 2017.

HTC 11

Everyone is predicting a 12-month cycle for HTC's new phones which puts the HTC 11 launch date in April 2017. Traditionally launched every March, we expect that HTC 11 will come next month of this year.

Google Pixel 2

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL were both announced in October 2016, so we'd expect to see the Pixel 2 roughly a year later, in or around October 2017. However, the Pixel line is new, it's building on the now defunct Nexus range, which also tended to have a new handset in around September or October of each year.

Xiaomi Mi6

The Xiaomi Mi6 will be the successor to the Xiaomi Mi5 which was unveiled last year on 31st March 2016. We might expect some fireworks from Xiaomi's camp at the MWC 2017. It will kick off in February last week.

Nokia P1

After making a splash with the Nokia 6 at CES last year, HMD Global is expected to showcase a new smartphone at Mobile World Congress. The Nokia P1 will likely be announced on Feb. 26 at a press conference in Barcelona. Nokia P1 could be Nokia's successful comeback.
