In 2016, a number of phone novelties are expected to appear on the market. In competition, the manufacturers selected a number of areas: strengthening the cameras, reducing the thickness of the phones, increasing the screen resolution, approaching 2K, expanding the amount of memory. There are sensors that detect the force of pressing the screen. The review presents smartphones, the presentations of which are only expected this year.
HTC One M10
In the summer of 2016 will be a smartphone One M10. It is not known why HTC to produce new models of phones with an interval of three months. Probably, a lot of good ideas have accumulated or mistakes are corrected urgently.
The smartphone is expected to “adult” AMOLED display with excellent video resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels and a size of 5.15 inches.
The operating system Android OS, v6.0.1, running on the Dual-core 2.15 GHz Kryo processor will be used. Serving the processor will be 4 GB of RAM. The integrated memory of 32 GB can be expanded with a Micro SD card with a capacity of up to 200 GB.
Smartphone One M10 is equipped with a 12 megapixel camera with OIS image stabilization, with manual or automatic focus. The camera flash has two LEDs, which allows you to adjust the color temperature. The camera captures video with a resolution of 2160p @ 30fps.
A Google Cloud cloud with a capacity of 100 GB is pre-connected to the phone. Also, the One M10 has a built-in compass, a rangefinder, an accelerometer, a fingerprint reader. The multimedia device plays video formats: XviD / MP4 / H.264 / WMV and audio: MP3 / eAAC + / WMA / WAV / FLAC.
The device is really powerful, but so far it is not known how much it will be available at a price.
A new smartphone from Apple is expected to enter the market not earlier than September 2016. According to some sources, at present seven whole concepts of the iPhone 7 are being tested, so information about the future phone is quite contradictory. It became even thinner than the iPhone 6 (which, incidentally, can still be purchased at a good price on Mobiabet.ru). Initially, the Internet rumor featured a figure of 6.1 mm, but recently there were reports that the thickness was still cut a little, bringing to 6 millimeters. It remains to be hoped that this was done not by reducing the capacity of the battery.
Concept iPhone 7
The smartphone will serve the six-core A10 processor manufactured by TSMC. For the sake of the harmony of the phone, a 3.5 mm headphone connector is likely to be removed, so music lovers will have to purchase sound reproducing devices with a Lightning plug or Bluetooth wireless interface. This is not always a pleasant extra cost.
Some sources claim that the phone will have a smart connector, like the iPad Pro. In the tablet it is used to connect the keyboard, but the connector can be used for integration with other modern Apple equipment.
Concept iPhone 7
Most likely, the Home button will also be deleted, which will enlarge the screen and use it to scan fingerprints.
The design of the smartphone will not change much, except for the 17-megapixel dual-lens camera, which can be removed with 4K resolution, on the back of the pair of lenses.
The display of the phone will remain in two versions with diagonals of 4.7 or 5.5 inches with a quality of 2K. This step Apple will catch up with its competitors. Use OLED technology is unlikely to be planned earlier than in the iPhone 8.
It is expected that the touch panel will have improved 3D technology, which recognizes the force of pressing the screen simultaneously in several points.
In 2016, the agreement between Nokia and Microsoft expires on the ban on the Finnish company to produce smartphones. Nokia is already ready to manufacture a new phone, with the strange name Nokia C1. Strange, because a phone with this name was already produced about five years ago and was a cheap button-phone. The new C1 is already something else.
In the first after a long break Nokia model will be installed operating system Android v5.0 (Lollipop). In the meager data leaked to the network, it is indicated that the processor will be from Intel with two gigabytes of operating memory and 32 GB of data storage. To display information, the smartphone is equipped with a 5-inch screen with a video resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels.
The device will receive a pair of cameras. The main 8 MP camera will be equipped with automatic and manual focus and LED flash. Photography with a resolution of 1080p @ 30fps will be marked with geographic coordinates. The second camera is 5 megapixel.
Basically, all interfaces and functions are so standard that it makes no sense to list them. Is that an unusual location of the main camera. It is shifted to the upper corner. The battery is not removable, in any case, for the user.
It seems that the developers did not particularly strive to surprise their adherents, although during the period of unemployment they could also prepare surprises. But in fact, the market is quite average phone, which is clearly not designed for the title of the flagship. Which is very surprising for Nokia’s resuming .
