Top 10 upcoming smartphones that are worth waiting for (August 2017)

Here’s your proper list of best upcoming smartphones you can be waiting for, in all sections of Smartphones market, have a look:-

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

You can’t miss the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 when talking about upcoming phones. The device is rumored to feature the same internal hardware as the Samsung Galaxy S8, but with a larger display and dual camera. Expect some “explosive” jokes at launch.

Samsung’s made it official: The new Note 8 super phone will launch August 23 in New York.

That means we’re a little more than a month away from meeting Samsung’s most powerful phone, and a little more than that until we can pocket it for ourselves. Samsung mobile chief D.J. Koh recently told a room full of journalists in Taiwan that Samsung will start selling the Note 8 in September and October, depending on the region.

This is a huge admission, and not the first one from Koh, who also told CNET in January that Samsung would stick with the Note 8 even after two series of Note 7 battery fires prompted Samsung to yank the Note 7 entirely. And it’s exactly because of the Note 7’s tumult and terror that this upcoming Note 8 will be more important than any other Note ever made.

Storage: 64/128GB

Camera: Dual 12MP, 8MP

Battery: 3300mAh



Google Pixel 2

The Pixel is supposed to have a dual camera, is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform and will definitely run on Android O. That’s why this becomes second in our list of Top 10 upcoming smartphones that are worth waiting for (August 2017).

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL were both launched in October 2016, so we’d expect to see a Google Pixel 2 release date roughly a year later, in or around October 2017.

Although the Pixel line is new, it’s building on the now defunct Nexus range, which also tended to have a new handset in around September or October of each year.

Rick Osterloh, Google’s senior vice president of hardware, has confirmed there will be a new Pixel this year, though he didn’t get any more specific than that.

According to one source the Pixel 2 will apparently carry a loftier price tag than its predecessors – something we hope doesn’t turn out to be true. The old one started at $649 (£599, AU$1,079), or $769 (£719, AU$1,269) for the XL version, so it was already expensive.

Display: 5-inch, 1080p

SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
