The year 2015 had witnessed a lot of smartphones. Do you want to know about the upcoming smartphones in February 2016? You have arrived at the right place. We can not even count the number of phones which we have witnessed there, but the flow is not going stop anytime. Consumers are going to witness some crazy times ahead in the future. In 2016, we have seen a lot of smartphones. At CES, 2016 many companies showcased their products and we now know that a lot of phones are coming in February too. Well, this is the month of Mobile World Congress, where the consumers can see a lot of gadgets. The term gadgets include phones too. The smartphone companies like Sony, Gionee, Samsung are eagerly waiting for MWC to launch their products.
The smartphones are coming with a lot of good features these days, but still we are looking for a smartphone with some X factor. Well, Eye Scanner may be the X-Factor for this year. Anyway, if we keep MWC aside, then we can also witness a lot of smartphones which will be launched in India. So, let’s talk about all the upcoming smartphones in February 2016.
1. Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge:
The Korean tech giant held the Samsung Forum 2016 yesterday, where they announced the new Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 and the new Samsung Galaxy A7 2016. These two smartphones are going to launch n India very soon. At this moment, the whole world is expecting two new smartphones—Samsung Galaxy S7 and the new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will come later this year.
As far as the rumor mill churns out the detail, we know that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is going to come with a 5.5-inch 2K display and we can not see a 4K display phone from Samsung this time. It will support 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB port and a 3,5mm headphone jacks. It is going o pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8820 processor. Well, this is something different as till this date we have seen Samsung always using their own Exynos processor, but this time, they are using a Qualcomm processor.
It is going to support the Fingerprint scanner as well. On the back of these devices we may find the same cameras, we have to agree that Samsung Galaxy Note 5 carried the best smartphone camera of 2015. Anyway, both these devices are expected to come with IP65/68 certification. We think that these things will make these smartphones more appealing, Anyway, it will be a single SIM device. There will be 4GB of RAM and these devices are expected to launch in 32GB/64GB variants. The Edge will have dual sided edges.
These devices will be launched in India soon, we expect by March, but at this moment we can only expect them to come with a price tag of Rs. 53,0000.
2. Sony Xperia Z6:
The Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Premium were good phones, they were not that much bad but definitely, those phones need some changes. Anyway, at Mobile World Congress the consumers can witness the new Sony Xperia Z6. It is going to be one of the upcoming smartphones of 2016. The smartphone is going to come with a 4K Ultra HD display and we not see a Premium phone this year and may see a single phone wth all the things included in it. We will witness the other smartphones like C6 and M6 this year which is going to be the cheaper smartphones. The Sony Xperia Z6 is going to come with 3GB/4GB of RAM and will include the same 23-Megapixel camera sensor, which will be capable of recording 4K Ultra HD videos. Anyway, we will like to see this dust proof and water proof smartphone at MWC, 2016.
3. Gionee Elife S8:
The Gionee ELife E8 was launched this year and that device came with a lot of good features. It was not a massive hit, but still it was quite good. We have tested this device out at the launch events and found that it was quite good, but the review unit was never circulated. ANwyaay, this device is going to come with a good screen. A great battery and a great camera are expected from this handset too. The smartphone is going to come with Android Lollipop and we hope that one day we will see a smartphone that runs on Android MArshmallllow out of the box as it has been 3 months since the Android Lollipop update is rolling out and now 1% smartphones are running on Android M. The Gionee Elife S8 can also be counted in as one of the upcoming smartphones of February 2016.
Watch the space we will return shortly with more phones.
