On October and November, there are a lot of expected handsets to land the market, lets take a closer look on what are these handsets that’ll take the stage on the following months. check out their specs, features and overall performance to expect the unexpected.
Samsung Mega On and Grand On
These new handset coming in from Samsung are truly something to wait for. Not much is said on these devices and its obvious that Samsung wants to keep these handsets a secret from everyone, as much as they can.
The Galaxy Mega On aka Galaxy O7 is a featured handset, with its partner the Samsung Grand On. Both these phones are expected to be either budget phones or mid-rangers, base on their specs. The Galaxy Mega On is, from the looks of things the bigger brother of the two sibling, with its 5.5-inch screen size. For budget-phone goer’s, these devices are truly to look forward to.
Huawei Nexus 6p and LG Nexus 5X
Similar in a few things, the new arrival from the Nexus series, takes aim to LG and Huawei, with their upcoming handsets the Huawei Nexus 6p and LG Nexus 5X.
The LG Nexus 5X packs a few new things, mainly on its Android 6.0 Marshmallow system, which is considered to be awesome. The LG Nexus 5X was announced just today, and many smartphone users, necessarily don’t like the latter’s specs overall, with its 16/32GB internal storage and 2GB RAM capacity, which they think could have delivered a few more than the set given. However, it still something to look forward to, this upcoming months, since this is a Nexus phones, and whether its high-end or low-end, its still worth the attention.
Now, lets move on to Huawei’s Nexus 6p, to be honest, Huawei’s upcoming Nexus handset, felt like its something more to look at, than the LG’s. Not to sound a bit biased here, but in terms, of overall specs and features, i would likely to consider the Huawei’s Nexus phone, since it delivers a bit more new things than the Nexus 5X. The Huawei Nexus 6p has a pretty good line of storage options, with the latter having 3GB of RAM, as well as a 32GB, 64GB and 128GB possible options on its internal storage, which is relatively a better offer than of the Nexus 5X. So, its best to expect that these Nexus phone’s will take the wave, upon its launch on the following months.
Sony Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium
We’ve been keeping a close eye on the Z5 handsets, and its arrival is imminent. the Xperia Z5 and its other siblings will be something to truly look forward to on the following months.
The Xperia Z5 is highly anticipated and is currently on the top of our list, in checking out, once launched. For personal opinion, i don’t think theres anything that new on the Xperia Z5, though its way too early to assume and i could only be mentioning this, because of its specs, although, the Xperia Z5’s ability to respect its predecessors heavily is amazing, and its something that’ll look forward to especially. On the Xperia Z5, there is a 23MP main shooter, which sounds really good and we’re really can’t wait to get our hands on the handsets to try ’em out ourselves.
The Xperia Z5 Compact, as the name states, is a more compact version of the Xperia Z5. the 5.2-inch screen of the Xperia Z5 is lessened on the compact, to make it more, ‘compact’, with its screen now carrying a 4.7-inch display, which isn’t technically a bad thing, but to some, people might consider the Xperia Z5, in terms of utility. The Xperia Z5 compact is build for those who wanted to experience the Xperia Z5 magic, but with for a lower cost, so, it’ll be something to look at, by budget-wise smartphone users, just like myself.
The Xperia Z5 Premium is the big brother of the siblings and packs a more bigger punch overall. Theres nothing much that was changed on the Z5 Premium, other than the screen size of 5.5-inch, from the original 5.2-inch of the regular and to be honest, i don’t think its much of an improvement, though, some may argue about that. Something to be taken accord, for those who like they’re Xperia Z5 premium-like, it is also something to look forward to, upon its release.
Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950XL
The upcoming Lumia phones are considerably one, to make way with, since Microsoft’s innovations on handsets have all landed upon these beauties. Microsoft aims to step it up a notch on these upcoming handsets, with both devices carrying in a Windows 10 Mobile system, which is the first in their kind.
The Lumia 950 and 950 XL will also test out the Windows Continuum feature, which is typically transforms your smartphone into a pc, relatively speaking of course. Whats not to love, on the upcoming Microsoft handsets. its gonna be worthwhile experience, when we get our hands on them.
Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
Apple’s new flagship has recently reached grey markets and online store’s premises here in the country, however, they are yet to be launched officially in the Apple store, so that’ll something to look forward to. the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are truly something to look forward, simply because they’re “iPhones” and being an iPhone alone can attract many attention.
Overall, iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are really doing good, in terms of sales, so i guess, its safe to assume that the iPhone 6s are top notch, in terms of delivering in performance. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are expected to be official in the Apple PH store on the following months, and they might offer a few promos for its officiality.
HTC One A9
Many have ridiculed the HTC One A9’s look, to be remotely close to the iPhone series. This could either be coincidental or purposely done, though many didn’t like the HTC One A9’s design, however, if you remove all the iPhone-like exterior, you’ll eventually see that the HTC One A9 is actually an excellent device, specs-wise and system-wise. The HTC One A9 packs an Android 6.0 Marshmallow and, in terms of overall specs, looks like it can par up with some of the upcoming devices on this list. Nevertheless, whether we like it or not, the HTC One A9, should be something to look forward to.
LG already has an upcoming handset, in the form of the nexus phone, the LG Nexus 5X. however, LG seems to bring more than the expected nexus phone. The LG Class isn’t your typical LG phone, though by the looks of things, the LG Class should be a mid-ranger, rather than a flagship, however, in terms of mid-range specs capability, the LG Class is something to look forward, given that it should deliver a few more surprises, before its made official, in the following months.
Moto X Play and X Style
The highly anticipated Motorola devices, these phones are already out, however, the Philippine market is yet to experience these device’s glory. These phones are a bit late, in terms of specs, when they arrived at our country on the following months, however, they still pack a decent punch, in which Motorola loyals or non-Motorola loyals would surely be contented with. Both the X Play and X Style sports huge screen capacity ranging from 10.9mm of the X Play and the 11.1mm of the X Style. These phones should really be taken into consideration, when thinking about upcoming devices in the country.
These devices were chosen, because of their great impact on the smartphone community. We’ll be expecting to hear more news and updates on these devices and we here, at manilashaker will be ready to give ’em to you guys.
