There have been hordes of smartphone releases in the Q1 of 2013 with some of the biggest ones like the HTC One,Samsung Galaxy S4 among others.
Fortunately for us, we will be seeing more than a dozen upcoming smartphones that will cater to a variety of budget users. Let’s have a look at the top 10 amongst the lot that definitely make the cut!
1. Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The Samsung Galaxy Note series is a big hit, and the Note 2 cemented that fact, which makes the anticipation revolving the Note 3, even more obvious. Touted to be a scorcher, this one will be as big as the Note 2, maybe bigger, Full HD 1080p screen, 13 megapixel camera and an octa-core processor to run it. We can’t wait!
2. Sony Xperia SP
Sony has been on a roll since its separation from Ericsson, and the Xperia Z and ZL proved testament to that. The SP is basically the watered down version of the Xperia Z minus all the waterproof and dustproof features. In return, it’ll receive few upgrades in the camera and battery department and retain few qualities from its siblings. In short, this one will be a smasher like every other new Xperia.
3. LG Optimus G2
LG have been playing with some groundbreaking innovations, putting them up at display like the flexible screen, etc. Taking all that into consideration, we’re hoping the LG Optimus G2 might implement few of these new technologies into the G2 to the public’s delight and may truly enter the smartphone competition rather than being a inferior contender.
4. Micromax Canvas 3D
Micromax have been making waves with their super-cheap Smartphone, the Canvas HD, and their next venture is all the more daring, and a risky gamble. If the rumors are to be believed, Micromax is keen on launching a 3D phone, titled the Micromax 3D. Many biggies have tried pulling it off but have failed miserably. Micromax might just pull it off though.
5. Apple iPhone 5S / 6
Regardless of the sales and the profits earned by Apple, iPhone 5 still proved to be a source of mockery for Apple fans and haters alike. Hopefully, Apple will try to redeem themselves with a slightly upgraded iPhone 5 and call it the iPhone 5S or roll out the iPhone 6 altogether. iPhone might pump up the processor and put in an efficient battery for the upcoming one.
6. Samsung Galaxy S4 mini
We all loved the Galaxy S4, and it is definitely at the top of the chain. Fortunately, Samsung is keen on delighting us with a miniature one called the Galaxy S4 mini that will boast of having a 1.6GHz Exynos 5210 dual core processor with 1 GB RAM and an 8 megapixel camera and tonnes of other features.
7. HTC First
The Facebook phone that everyone was waiting for, HTC First definitely proved to be quite alook, but was met with poor reception after its launch. Hopefully, the social networking addicts in India will welcome it with open arms, especially since it is packaged with HTC’s hardware and has Android as its base.
8. Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3
A smartphone list without a bunch of Galaxys always seems incomplete, and we already have two. Yet another one to watch out for is the upcoming Galaxy Mega 6.3, a 6.3 inch phablet that may very well come under the tablet department. Sporting a 6.3 inch screen and loaded with all the Samsung Galaxy top goodies, the Mega 6.3 might just work for the ones who want a tablet that can make phone calls.
9. Nexus 5
The almighty Google’s secret weapon that works like a charm,Nexus 4 ruled the world when it launched, and Google is hell-bent on doing it all over again with the Nexus 5. Rumoured to have a 13 Megapixel camera, a high-powered octa-core processor and a battery to match the muscles, the upcoming Nexus 5 has all the capabilities to take on the iPhone series, and grind it to dust.
10. Motorola X
A smartphone in the making since a long time, Motorola are hell-bent on perfecting their masterpiece and it shows. Their Ace Of Spades and the answer to the Galaxy S4 and HTC One, Motorola X might very well be the smartphone worth its name. A release date of August suggests the X is ready and may very well live up to the expectations of its predecessors that brought forth the Android brand in limelight.
