Top 6 Upcoming Smartphones of 2017

2017 has been an incredibly exciting year, when it comes to smartphone launches. But that doesn’t mean, it will not get even better. So, Let’s have a look at the upcoming smartphones, which are yet to be released, and will get released in rest of the year.

1. LG V30

First in the list is LG V30, which can be announced on August 31st and to be honest, ever since the LG V10 released, two years ago, this has been a line of smartphones to really keep an eye on.

Well, technically speaking of LG’s G series phone like LG G5, LG G6 are the company’s flagship line of smartphones, but the V series phones are just generally better.

The reason, they are not technically the flagship phones, is because they are created for slightly more niche audience. They are essentially made for power users. So, I am sure for a lot of you guys, who are reading this blog that is good news.

Historically both the LG V10 and the LG V20 had secondary displays, they were used pretty well. They added some interesting functionality, but already to the fullest extent LG is trying to develop this again with the LG V30.

But we still don’t quite know the final form in which it will appear in, but the really interesting thing about the LG V30 is the camera. We think it has on the back, so we have a reliable source, one that has correctly predicted smartphone leaks in the past that has suggested, we have an f/1.6 aperture on one of the cameras on the back.

Now, if that is true, there is a record breaking wide aperture on a smartphone camera and what that is going to mean is essentially incredible low light performance, combine that with 4K video high resolution photo and that wide angle lens, we saw on the LG G6 and we could have a killer Camera on our hands.

2. Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is releasing in August also, but actually a little bit earlier, this time on the 23rd August. For those who don’t know this is the successor of the Samsung Galaxy S8, which was hugely popular and also very very well received.

Now, the main departures of this, from the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are that we have a larger display and a more boxy body. We have a dual camera on the back, which should be capable of three times optical zoom as well as some other cool bokeh effect and we also have that S pen.

3. Nokia 9

So, then we have got a company, who we are not really used to associating with Android Operating Smartphones. Now, Nokia has throughout the year, they have released the Nokia 6, recently Nokia 8 and later this year in September time, we are hoping to the Nokia 9.

It’s packing flagship components, I mean this will actually be Nokia’s first foray into the flagship Android smartphone space. It spent a lot of time on Windows phones, where technically, the was less competition, but also as an operating system, it was just too limiting and it fell behind the other two.(Android and iOS)


Now, to be honest I have got kind of mixed opinions of the Smartphone. On one hand, it is great that it is matching its competitors for specifications, but on the other hand that is not really enough to really excite me.

The company has partnered with Carl Zeiss optics, so the camera part returned in a similar capacity to what we have seen with Huawei and liked it. To be honest with this partnership works anywhere near as well as that partnership, we could have a really potent camera on the phone.

The only thing that really irritate me about here, is the design. Placing it side by side with the LG G6 or the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus or other 2017 flagships and it really does fall behind in that department. Whereas for those phones, its clear that the companies have invested a lot in making them feel kile a luxury product.

With Nokia 9, it kind of reminds me a little bit of the Asus Zenfone line smartphones and they are at budget line of firms.

4. Apple iPhone 8

This is not anything you didn’t hear. The iPhone 8 or the iPhone X, whatever it ends up being called, it is going to be an absolute monster. The A11 chip, which is inside of it, was recently bench-marked and in terms of multi core score it was ranging between 7,000 and 8,500.

Now, that compares to 6500 in the very best Android smartphone and when you take into account that the Apple chips are really in their element in the single core benchmarks. In this category, it is about twice as powerful as a next closest Android Competitor.

The most exciting thing about the next iPhone though is going to be the form factor, people love the idea of a completely border-less (Bezel-less) display and while some people were complaining that there is little cutout on the top for the sensors on the phone especially won’t be a problem.

Because Apple is planning to use an OLED display, which black pixels do look completely black and almost as if they are part of the body, that display part will actually hide this little cutout, it will make it look just like one integrated little screen at the top of the phone.

5. Google Pixel 2

Well, we are talking about top 6 upcoming smartphones of 2017 and we don’t even recall Google Pixel 2, that is impossible. Now, the Google pixel, last year was a complete surprise and it was incredibly well received. We love the camera on it and we love the fact that it was a stock Google experience with a Google Pixel.

None of that is going to change, the camera sensor is twice as larger as we have seen on the Google Pixel and the design is far far better. So, this seems to have corrected the few faults that we had with the original Google Pixel and we couldn’t be more excited for it.

6. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

We have the Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2, last year Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Mix, the bezel less beauty. They were doing it almost as a proof of concept to show that bezel-less smartphones could be produced and also that they were at the forefront of the technology.

But, I don’t think anyone quite anticipated the crazy demand that resulted for the smartphone. So, this year when they do release the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, the company has really had time to think about it, they have had time to create a better more well rounded, more well thought out flagship firm.

So, whilst nothing is confirmed as of now, some of the leaks, some of the renders are seen on gearbest for example are showing a complete screen. They are showing the entire front of the smartphone to be a display, which if they manage to figure out a way of getting an embedded fingerprint scanner on there, than it could be the dream smartphone of 2017.
