Rumor Has It New Flagships Are Coming

While the 2016 Mobile World Congress (MWC) (where companies often debut new high-end gadgets) is still quite far away, rumors have already started circulating about the upcoming releases of nearly all the major companies. We decided to take a peek at what’s to come.

Why don’t we start with Samsung? There seems to be plenty of (not quite reliable) information about the Galaxy S7. According to reports, the phone will be powered by the new Exynos 8890, a brand new 64-bit, octa-core chipset, however, an alternative model of the smartphone could have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. Moreover, some sources on Weibo claim that the Galaxy S7 will have a premium version, bragging a 14-core GPU and 4K screen.

Let’s continue with Apple, the CEO of which recently blasted Microsoft, calling its Surface Book ‘deluded’. There is not much known about the iPhone 7 yet, as it is expected to be released in the third quarter of next year. However, rumor has it that Apple’s upcoming release will have a mini version which will go on sale sometime in the first six months of 2016.

Despite reporting a net loss of USD139 million and stating it will no longer provide earnings guidance from Q4, HTC is expected to debut the One M10 at MWC 2016. Reports say that the company’s upcoming high-end smartphone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, have 4GB RAM, a staggering 27 MP camera and a QHD display. However, the reliability of all these reports are highly questionable.

Moving on to LG, if rumors are to be believed, the company is planning quite a release. The LG G5 is expected to have a 4K screen, run Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and have a high-tech iris scanner, which is said to be able to identify a user’s eyes up to a distance of 50 centimeters.

So, which high-end smartphone are you planning to buy? Or do you prefer not to spend money on super-expensive gadgets? Don’t forget to send us your comments, experiences and ideas on our Facebook page.
