This might not come as a surprise, but we are probably going to see some interesting phone launches in 2012. Probably not any revolutionary phones, rather evolutionary, but who knows – only time will tell.
My personal favorite of anticipated smart phones in 2012 is of course the next iPhone, probably to be called Apple iPhone 5. Who knows what it will have, the rumor mills are running at full speed as usual, but the only thing I’m pretty sure of (or at least I’m hoping!) is that it will have a bigger screen, it’s been the same size for years now, and a slightly bigger screen would be really nice. Price wise, iPhone 5 is probably not going to be cheap but if you’re into contract phones and your current contract ends sometime around summer of 2012, my bet is it’s going to align up pretty well with the release of iPhone 5 in some countries.
Another interesting phone scheduled to arrive in 2012, is the Samsung Galaxy S III. Samsung has a pretty nifty phone thing going with their Galaxy S’s, and I expect their version 3 to be another monster from Samsung, boasting some of the newest tech out there and some of the best – if not the best – specifications in a smartphone. Galaxy S III is not expected to launch until Q3 2012 because Galaxy S II still sells well and so does Galaxy Nexus. Besides, I’m guessing Samsung wants to be ready for when iPhone 5 is out – they don’t want Apple to steal all their thunder.
Let’s not forget about Nokia, though they have been “away” from much hype these past few years. Nokia Lumia 900 will be running Windows Phone 8 with a 4.3” AMOLED screen and of course the usual stuff such as 8mp camera, ton of internal memory etc.
