2017 Flagship Phones Rumors: LG V30, OnePlus 4, Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, iPhone 8 : 2016 has seen some of the best smartphone technologies ever. Samsung, Apple, LG and OnePlus all had something big to show off this year. With that, smartphone fanatics are getting excited for what these companies have in store for 2017. Rumor has it that these companies’ upcoming flagships will be bumped up even more with technologies you’ve never seen before. Here are some of the rumors and calculated predictions we’ve heard about next year’s flagships.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to launch February or March of 2017. Among the rumored specs of the Samsung flagship include having no home button and having less bezels. This means that the S8 could feature an all-display look and have its fingerprint sensor embedded underneath the display.
Additionally, next year’s Samsung S device will probably be 4K ready and its display resolution could also bump up to 3840 x 2160 pixel resolutions. Nevertheless, there are also talks about S8 not having a flat screen variant. This means that there’s a good chance that the Galaxy S8 will come in multiple variants with curved screens. An AI named Bixby is also probably showing up in this flagship and come with its own button.
The OnePlus 3T was just recently revealed and it’s almost literally an improved version of the OnePlus 3. With that said, it’s safe to say that OnePlus is saving the major upgrades for the OnePlus 4. Rumor has it that the 2017 OnePlus device will have an improved display resolution.
The OnePlus 3 compromised its display to maintain the phone’s “flagship for half the price” offer and it’s possible that the company will no longer retain its 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution on the OnePlus 4. Furthermore, the phone’s RAM could also increase from 6 GB to 8 GB. The processor could be a Snapdragon 830 and the battery size is less likely to go lower than 3000 mAh in size.
