Top 5 Upcoming Smartphones To Look Forward in 2017

2017 is an exciting time of the year, not only because it is another year but because we are expecting these top 5 upcoming smartphones. While 2016 is definitely the year of VR, 2017 is the year smartphones become smarter.

Despite Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s bad publicity, the company with an exploding phone is still arguably one of the best in the market. The Korean technology giant has produced cellphones that has rivaled the once king of smartphones, Apple.

Apart from Samsung, HTC and LG are also forerunners in the smartphone industry. LG’s flagship phones are known to have top-notch specs especially the high quality cameras in its cellphones. The up and coming OnePlus is also one to look forward to with an affordable price range and excellent consumer feedback on their devices.

iPhone 7S

Second is its head to head rival, iPhone who is noted to release the iPhone 7s later next year around September. Not only will Apple give the device boost in resolution, it will also get a good upgrade with regards to speed. A rumor playing around the device is that wireless charging will be the next big added value to it. However, experts are still weighing it down saying the possibility is slim.
