Regardless of how old you are, you’re probably amazed at how far smartphones have come in the past couple of years. It seems as though we’ve gone from a typewriter to a supercomputer in the span of months as opposed to decades.
Yet it’s not only the past that was bright for smartphones: the future is even brighter. The rest of this article is a celebration of how far smartphones have come. The best way to do that is to tell you how much there is to look forward to in 2015 for your smartphone news.
In the past few years, we’ve had manufacturers trying to outdo each other in terms of design. For instance, there was a race to have the slickest, thinnest phone. Then there was the race to have the smallest and/or biggest screen.
2015 smartphones are all about the power. It’s going to be the behind-the-scenes action that really takes a leap forward this year. The biggest news is the confirmation that SnapDragon processors are going to start appearing In the higher market Android phones. The octacore 810 is comprised of four cores. If you’re not a techy, this probably doesn’t interest you. The effects of course, will.
Expect new features due to the increase in power of the processor. Better HD streaming, more voice recognition, better sound and faster responses to touch are te key benefits that everyone can look forward to.
Here are some of our picks as to the best phones that are on their way:
HTC ONE 9
This is going to be the powerhouse of the next generation of phones. It uses the snapdragon processor mentioned above, and it will probably be arriving with a massive 3GB of RAM. If that’s alien language to you, remember that professional computer desktops didn’t have 3GB until the late 2000’s. This increase of power doesn’t come with a lack of style; early leaked photos suggest that HTC are staying true to the formula.
Samsung Galaxy S6
Samsung are, unlike HTC, changing their design for the 6. They are rumored to be taking a page out of the Note Edge design, and having a screen that wraps around the edge of the phone. That probably won’t be the most drastic difference though; apparently, the phone will be the first all metal offering from Samsung’s smartphone department. Rugged and reliable is likely to be the calling card of the S6.
Sony Xperia Z4
Sony recently updated their phone, so don’t expect massive changes here. However, rumors are that the Z4 will be released in March this year. It will have the usual improvements, but the most likely to boast about is a screen boost to 1440 pixels by 2560 pixels for a great viewing experience.
Those are the three picks for early twenty-fifteen. Whatever you decide, it’s going to be a great year for smartphone buyers. Like we’ve said above though, this year will be all about specifications and technical power, so make sure you do your homework before buying.
