8 New Phones
Coming this 2016

 

Technology is at an all-time high. Everyday, electronics and machines are getting significant upgrades and tune-ups. What only seemed possible in movies before is almost child’s play in the face of today’s technology.

Owning a smartphone today, on the other hand, is kind of annoying because deep down you know that in just a few months’ time, a new model will be released out of nowhere, making the one in your hands seemingly obsolete. 2016 could be different though. This year, manufacturers are taking risks and doing things they’ve never done before, creating a need for things that previously wasn’t there. Modular phones and phones that are strong as gaming PC’s are possible now. We are in the next generation of smartphones, people. Without further ado, here are 8 new phones coming this 2016.

 

8. iPhone 7

The iPhone 7’s rumored release date is sometime in September 2016. Not much is known about the specs of the new iPhone but what we do know for sure is that Apple has removed the auxiliary and any use of antenna, giving the phone a sportier and sleeker look. From now on, Apple devices will use Bluetooth or lightning port compatible headphones. Expect a serious upgrade from the iPhone 6S because Apple is upping their game bigtime this year.

 

7. Samsung S7 Edge

The phone also features expandable memory up to 200GB via microSD. The Samsung S7 Edge will be available to the public on March 11, 2016.
