Apple’s next iPhones will be a little different than we expected, according to the latest rumors from Silicon Valley.
That rumor? That the company will unveil their next smartphones later this year, though it looks like its “next mobile operating system” is the Nokia Lumia 1020. It’s very likely that Nokia will release it in September 2016, much sooner than the company previously expected.
This isn’t really news — Nokia is only holding on to its phone business with Android devices, a fact that is actually pretty interesting and highly recommended. The company is also making big promises, in one interesting move. It announced plans to launch its new phones and tablets in China and South America next year.
And that’s actually pretty good news for Apple, because if this isn’t great news then it’s not even true. For the third time in three years, they are taking the lead on Android and iOS. And by making significant improvements, Apple clearly has some money left over.
Why Apple’s Going To Release Smartphones Soon
It’s certainly possible the new phones will launch on or after September, but for now, these rumors seem pretty straight forward. It’s possible this could be the last one. Let’s take a peek at some of the devices that we will soon see.
Here was the leaked list of the upcoming phones:
1st Gen HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S6, HTC One, LG G5, LG G5 Compact, LG G4 Compact, LG G4 Plus, Motorola Nexus 6P
2nd Gen ASUS Chromebook Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S5, Asus Chromebook Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S6, Asus Chromebook Pixel G2
So let’s put forth the same predictions:
2nd Gen Samsung Galaxy S6, Asus Chromebook Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S7, Asus Chromebook Pixel R9, Asus Chromebook Pixel 4, Asus Chromebook Pixel N, Asus Chromebook Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2, Asus VivoBook, Asus VivoBook XL
If you’re not paying attention, you already know that the Galaxy S7 will come with a 10.6in screen, which is pretty good for a Chromebook Pixel. But of course this might not be very noticeable at all if you’re using a device with a larger screen. It’s also not quite as easy to use on an Android device as the Galaxy Note 7, which used an 8.2in screen as the first device to come out.
I’ve already been pretty intrigued with Android handsets now, so I’m going to try to keep this information to myself and hope you take it with a grain of salt.
The future of smartphones is always interesting. You will not go back to reading articles saying that the iPhone 6s wouldn’t fit your style, but more likely it would be just fine with having an A11 processor, the Snapdragon 820 chipset, and the Adreno 540 GPU that powers the devices I previously mentioned.
