New Smart phone releases

Best smartphones to look forward to in 2016

With the pace of smartphone evolution moving so fast, there's always something waiting in the wings. No sooner have you spied the latest handset, then there's anticipation of something else, the next big thing.

We've rounded up the best smartphones for 2015, those we consider to be the best across all platforms, and we've regularly updated that list as the smartphone world has evolved.

You can find those in our feature. If your budget is a little smaller, there is also our .

Here we're looking at those phones that haven't yet launched, those we know are coming, or are anticipated. We'll be updating this list on a regular basis, with those device rumours we think are credible and exciting, and devices just announced but yet to hit the shelves.

Motorola Moto X (2016)

Motorola announced three Moto X devices in July of 2015 but rumours for the successor have already started. Chinese website Wapvnet leaked an image claiming to be the new Moto X 2016 device featuring an all-metal body. Another leak also appeared on Chinese website Techweb claiming to be the internals of the new Moto X. The latter image presented what looks like a heatpipe, suggesting Motorola is looking to offer overclocking options.

motorola-moto-x-2016As there are currently only a few rumours floating about for the Motorola Moto X (2016), we are mainly running on guesswork at the moment. Nothing is certain but we wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of new Moto X models appear towards the middle of 2016, one of which potentially offering a metal build.

We'd expect improvements in most areas as this tends to be the way so a faster processor, more RAM, microSD support, a larger battery capacity and the latest software would all be reasonable predictions. We'd also expect the camera to be a big consideration as it was in 2015.

OnePlus 3

The OnePlus 2 has been kicking around for a while now, launching in July 2015, while the OnePlus X only graced us with its presence in October 2015 but that hasn't stopped rumours sparking for the next OnePlus device - the OnePlus 3.

P1020120 copyRumours are currently thin on the ground but a set of leaked specs suggested a Full HD display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip under the hood. The leak suggested a fingerprint sensor might not be on board this time round, although we think this is unlikely.

We expect the rumours and speculation for the OnePlus 3 to pick up over the next couple of months, but for now, we would predict the OnePlus 3 will arrive with a similar design and size to the previous models, along with Qualcomm's SD820 processor, 4GB of RAM and USB Type-C. We don't expect to see a QHD display, nor iris recognition but a larger battery capacity and a slight increase in price from the OnePlus 2 wouldn't surprise us.

OnePlus 2 Mini

It seems OnePlus is busy at the moment. Not only have rumours started for the company's next flagship, but speculation also suggests it is working on a mini version of its current flagship. A leaked benchmark on GFX Bench for an "unknown" OnePlus handset is what has sparked the rumours for the OnePlus 2.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus-15The OnePlus 2 Mini has been rumoured to be coming with a 4.6-inch display, which would make it the smallest OnePlus device available. It has also been rumoured to come with a Full HD resolution, which makes sense given that's what its bigger brother offers. At this size and this resolution however, it would make it the sharpest display in the OnePlus portfolio.

A 12-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 have also all been rumoured, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. We'd expect the OnePlus 2 Mini to arrive with the OxygenOS if it arrives at all.

Samsung Galaxy S7

The Samsung Galaxy S7 has already hit the rumour cycle. The device has been codenamed Project Lucky and two models are expected, referred to as Hero and Hero2.

The current leaks suggest that you can expect a 5.2-inch device and a 5.8-inch device, but there have also been reports of a 5.7-inch device with a Quad HD display. It's entirely reasonable to suggest that Samsung will have another dual edge device or devices. Whether a larger model will launch alongside the smaller remains to be seen.

In terms of processor, rumours suggest Samsung will stick to Exynos in one device and put the Qualcomm SD820 in the other. The use of a Snapdragon chipset might just be for testing, however, as we suspect that Samsung will stick with in-house hardware. There's also been reports of a return to supporting microSD cards.
