The year 2017 has been a delight so far in terms of technology. We have seen some of the best devices ever conceptualized by man come to life. We've also seen some rather disappointing follow-ups. Some of the techs released or announced early this year that have made the most noise include the Samsung Galaxy S8, Microsoft Surface Pro, and the Nintendo Switch. We still have seven more months to go to see if the rest of 2017 will give us more devices to celebrate about.
Apple iPhone 8
Samsung has made its move. Now it's Apple's turn to one-up its bitter rival. Based on the many rumors that have surfaced, the iPhone 8 will either be better than the Galaxy S8 or will be a major failure. That idea alone makes the next flagship one of the most anticipated tech this year. Among the rumored features of the iPhone 8 include OLED displays, slimmer bezels, rear vertical dual cameras, front-facing 3D camera, and wireless charging.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8
The Korean conglomerate already made up for the Galaxy Note 7 brouhaha with the very successful (so far) Galaxy S8. Samsung is not planning to stop anytime soon. The Galaxy Note 8 will be released within the year and its success will be the final nail in the coffin. The Galaxy Note 8 is rumored to come with dual cameras, super-sized 4K display, and a foldable screen.
Microsoft Xbox Project Scorpio
For gaming enthusiasts, the upcoming June 11 release of the Xbox Project Scorpio is what they are most excited about for this year. Much has been said about the supposed "most powerful console ever" and an exclusive review of the console proved that its 6 teraflops of power indeed makes the Xbox Scorpio the best in the industry so far.
Tesla Model 3
Cars are part of tech, too and the Tesla Model 3 happens to be one of the most highly awaited techs of 2017. This new baby by Elon Musk has been seen all over the place or at least its prototype is. The all-electric Model 3 is cheaper than the Model S yet it will provide the same luxury as its more expensive relative. The production of the Tesla Model 3 will commence in July and release will follow soon after.
A recent report said that Apple will be introducing new MacBooks at the 2017 WWDC. If the analyst behind this report is proven true, then fans of Apple will be delighted to have more laptop options after the controversial 2016 MacBook Pro. this also means that owners of the latest Apple laptops will be angered knowing they could've waited a few more months to get an updated MacBook, MacBook Pro, or even MacBook Air.
