Christmas is just around the corner, a time of sharing and celebration. Apart from the usual buzz and chatter that come with the holidays, the festivities are also a chance for mobile companies to introduce upcoming phones in 2014.
For techies, this is good news, a great opportunity to scout for replacement phones for the coming year.
If you’re itching to know the latest models, there are interesting mobile phones coming out in 2014 – some are expected while others are a pleasant surprise.
The iPhone 6 ($900+) stays one of the most highly anticipated upcoming phones in 2014. Reports say that the changes in the new iPhone will mostly concentrate on aesthetics, possible a bigger display and a curved shape.
The Nokia Lumia 1820 ($800) is also set to get launched early next year. The Lumia 1820 reportedly will feature a virtual assistant powered by Microsoft, a much powerful processor and possibly a larger display as well. Apart from the Lumia 1820, the highly anticipated Android phone from Nokia called Normandy is also set out for next year’s launch, and is expected to be more affordable.
Meanwhile, LG Optimus G Pro ($400) promises a more streamlined experience with its upcoming phone in 2014, starting with it being able to multi-task up to three apps in one screen all at the same time.
But possibly the most intriguing phone that’s scheduled to come out next year is the YotaPhone (€499). It has the usual color display on the front, but has a secondary e-ink display at the back. The two-display feature of the YotaPhone is an absolute game changer in the mobile industry because it raises the flexibility and multi-tasking functionality of Android phones to a whole new level.
So which of the upcoming phones in 2014 are you looking forward to?
