Here’s a roundup of every phone we are anxiously sweating out to try out!

1. iPhone 8

Predicted release – September 2017

Apple iPhone 8

The best-selling smartphones in the world could be in for one of the biggest remakes ever. 2017 marks the 10th anniversary since the release of the first iPhone. The expectations are sky high and Apple could actually go for the much talked about bezel-less design. There are speculations already which claim that the front-facing camera will come with 3D sensing capabilities. The iPhone 8 will come with a 5.8″ OLED display marking Apple’s shift from LED screens. Coupled with all this will be a new super-fast processor and bigger storage space.

The Apple iPhone we all love is all set to get bigger, better and more powerful in 2017.

2. Samsung Galaxy S8

Predicted release – April 21, 2017

Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung will put behind its Galaxy Note 7 debacle as it gears up for another flagship release. No doubt the Galaxy S8 from the South Korean manufacturer will be a trendsetter with incredible specifications. However, there are rumors that Samsung may drop the 3.5mm audio jack for a USB Type-C port. The device is expected to come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor and at least 6GB of RAM. It will support the latest 5G connectivity and will come with an edge variant too.

3. Google Pixel 2

Predicted release – October 2017

Google Pixel 2

After a rushed release of the first edition of Google Pixel, the Internet giant will be cautious in releasing the second variant. The outstanding features of the first phone was a true shocker as no one saw it coming. Google Pixel and Pixel XL still have the highest rated smartphone cameras in their hoods. This time around, the company plans to polish the product with a cooler design and better chipset.

4. LG G6

Predicted release – April 2017

LG G6

The LG G5 was a disaster for the company and it failed miserably in all markets across the world. Following the big hit, the G6 from LG plans to dig deep and please all tech enthusiasts. The company has recently teased with LG G6’s sophisticated camera UI and square image capture mode. LG has taken a more traditional and winning approach with its new flagship phone and looks to make up for the massive previous failures.

5. OnePlus 5

Predicted release – June 2017

OnePlus 5

Could this be the perfect Android phone yet? OnePlus has time and again set benchmarks in mobile phone manufacturing and user experience. OnePlus phones are the most powerful yet budget-friendly phones anyone can buy. OnePlus 5 aims to take the standard still north with amazing features including incredible front and back-facing cameras, long lasting battery, powerful processor and sleek design. This should actually be called OnePlus 4 but speculated to be called OnePlus 5 since number 4 is considered bad luck in China.

6. HTC Ocean

Predicted release – February 26, 2017 (Mobile World Congress)

HTC Ocean

HTC has been plummeting since Chinese players invaded the Indian smartphone scene in the last couple of years. This could be HTC’s real last chance to dig itself out of the grave. The HTC Ocean is rumored to come with a swipe-sensitive side which can also be used to control the volume. The close integration with Google voice assistant and dual-camera setup will also work in the favor of HTC Ocean.

7. Xiaomi Mi6

Predicted release – March 2017

Xiaomi Mi6

Xiaomi has established itself in India in the past four years. The Mi 5 was one of the best-selling Xiaomi smartphones in the country. It will now look to ride on its new popularity and acceptance among customers to market the Mi6. The new device will come with the latest Snapdragon 820 processor, a 128GB storage space, and 16MP camera with 4K video recording. It will come packed with 6GB RAM and internal storage options of 128GB and 256GB.

8. Huawei P10

Predicted release – February 26, 2017 (Mobile World Congress)

Huawei P10

Huawei is already the third biggest manufacturer in China and grows from strength to strength with time. The Huawei P10 is a device that will replace the P9 which has been Huawei’s flagship device till date. The phone will come with a hugely improved design that sports a dual-camera system and stylish metal build.

There will be more Nokia phones joining the fray soon and the most anticipated among them is the Nokia 8 which will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor and a 24-megapixel rear camera with OIS alongside a 12-megapixel front camera. There will be two storage options for the phone – 128GB and 256GB. And there is the added surprise of Nokia 3310 a.k.a the toughest phone ever made making a comeback.
