The end of the year is fast approaching, and there are four smartphones that people will be on the lookout to buy. Some of these phones are only rumored to be released, but it does not take away the excitement or hope that the features will be available. With Black Friday and Cyber Money just around the corner, these are the top phones to look out for this year.
The first on the list has to be Apple’s iPhone 6. This is one of the smartphones that people have shared rumors about since just after the iPhone 5 release almost two years ago. The rumored date is sometime in September or October, and makes sense considering the cycle since the release of the iPhone 4s. September 9 is the current favored date.
Some of the rumored specifications include two versions that differ in size, and the phones will have up to 128GB storage. There are expectations that expandable storage will be available, which has only been available through the cloud in the past.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the second anticipated phone for people. It is safe to assume that this will be the next phone from the Korean company, considering the Galaxy S5 has already been released. The Galaxy Note 4 is expected sometime in September or October, which will be a year after the release of its predecessor, the Note 3.
Samsung has been sending out emails to “Note the date,” which September 3 as that date. It appears that that may be either the date of the release or at least an officially announcement with the official release date. A 5.9-inch display screen is expected, although some put the screen size to the same 5.7-inch display that the Note 3 has.
Sony is one of the four smartphones to look out for this year. The Xperia M2 Aqua has been officially introduced and will be a waterproof phone. So far, pricing has not been shared but all markets will receive the phone around the same time. The Xperia M2 Aqua will have the same specifications as its predecessors the M2 and M2 Dual, but with the waterproofing addition.
Finally, there are Google Nexus rumors to look out for this year. The Google Nexus 6 is one of those new devices involved in the rumors, with specifications and pricing information shared. However, the tech giant is still to confirm anything about this expected phone. Many who pay attention to the Google Nexus rumors will not have their hopes up after the way a Nexus 10 2 had been rumored all of last year and was never released.
There are various phones that people will favor, whether they prefer Apple or want an Android device. It is worth staying up to date with the technology news surrounding these different devices. The officially announcements could be made at any time now. The four mentioned above are just the favorite smartphones to look out for this year at the moment, but that could all change very soon.
