In just a little over a month, we will all be greeting 2017 with excitement. 2016 has seen some of the best smartphones ever and everyone's curious as to what 2017 has in store for all smartphone fanatics out there. Whether you're an Android guy or an iOS guy, you'll be seeing the best in smartphone technology next year. Here's our list of expected smartphones for the coming year.
It's exciting to think about what the flagship killer maker has saved for next year. The OnePlus 3 has been quite successful in topping the OnePlus 2. Hopefully, the OnePlus 4 is yet another success for OnePlus. Rumor has it that the OnePlus 4 will still be a flagship killer specs-wise and pricewise. As per Tech Radar's report, the said phone is expected to boast about 8 GB worth of RAM and still remain affordable.
Microsoft Surface Phone
Rumors are strong about the 2017 arrival of the Surface Phone. This is despite the fact that Microsoft hasn't even acknowledged the existence of the device just yet. We've heard tons of rumors about the Surface Phone this year which could actually mean that it does exist and Microsoft is just waiting for the perfect time to launch it. As per recent predictions, the Surface Phone could show up spring of next year alongside the launch of Windows 10 Redstone 2 update.
Apple iPhone 8
The iPhone 8 is expected to boast some of the most innovative features that Apple has ever made. Earlier this year, we've all heard about the possibility of the iPhone 8 coming with an all-glass frontal. As the year come to a close, rumor has also come out about the iPhone 8 coming with an all-glass rear as well. This means that the next iPhone could be the most changed and the most premium-looking iPhone ever. Since the phone could sport a glass exterior, the fingerprint scanner and front camera are both expected to be embedded within the iPhone's display. Mac Rumors also says that the iPhone 8's display will be edge-to-edge.
Samsung Galaxy S8
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the most exciting releases of next year. It's worth noting that this device is Samsung's next flagship phone after the discontinued Galaxy Note 7. Rumor has it that the Galaxy S8 will feature not only one, but two curved models. It would also sport only the latest and most powerful processors of next year. There's a good chance that the Galaxy S8 will come in Snapdragon and Exynos variants.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may have been rumored to be canceled. But as it turns out, the Samsung phablet will still see the light of day. The company has indirectly acknowledged the existence of the Note 8 which simply suggests that the device is indeed coming up. Nevertheless, not a lot of details have surfaced about the upcoming phablet. Since we're still almost a year away from its predicted launch, there's a good chance that the device is still in progress. After its predecessor's infamous fiasco, it's understandable for Samsung to take its sweet time in ensuring the Galaxy Note 8's quality.
