The handset launched on April 6 and is one of the most powerful Android phones on the planet Earth. Much of this power will come from potentially 4GB of RAM and Huawei’s insanely powerful Kirin SoC.
There are two versions of the Huawei P9: the P9 is available with a 5.2in 1080p display and second-one called the P9 Max with a 6.2in QHD display. It includes a MASSIVE 3900mAh battery, that means an excellent battery performance.

Samsung Galaxy Note 6 featuring 2K resolution on a 5.8-inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor (available with upgraded Snapdragon 820 version), 4,200 mAh battery and 6GB of RAM. The handset is having 256GB of storage.
The tech specs alone makes it comparable to a laptop. Along-with the advent of Android N potential ChromeOS cross-over, Galaxy Note 6 might be the handset of the year, packing in design and utility, power, imaging prowess. Samsung’s 2016 is officially back on!
The new camera sensor will have a resolution anywhere between 18 to 24 megapixels. The company is also working on a new compact 1/2.3-inch camera sensor.

The Xperia X has a smooth metal back having a nice change from previous Xperia Z models from the glass-panel backs. It has a 23-megapixel rear camera along-with predictive hybrid autofocus. The lens is same as Z5 but the new AF is a big improvement. It supports microSD card slots up to 200GB to supplement the built-in storage. Having a 64GB internal space it has single and dual-sim options. The single-SIM model is available with 32GB. Sony is making bold ‘two-day battery life’ claims.

Carving an interesting niche with the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X the company has been selling high-quality phones at a lower price. Initially, OnePlus has sold phones to people with an invite, but that restriction has been removed.
So, here’s what we can expect? Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip, 4GB of RAM and a Full HD 1,920×1,080 screen. Renders of the phone don’t show fingerprint reader, so there’s a chance it has been removed or integrated into another button.
It’s difficult to find out when OnePlus 3 will arrive, it seems reasonable to expect that it will arrive around July or August 2016.

LG used to be rubbish. But then it built the Nexus 4 and changed everything. Company has regained its stride and started making some of the best phones like the LG G3 in 2014 and LG G4 in 2015 which was two of our favorite releases.
LG G5 is the most exciting releases that we have seen in recent times, in 2015. The device itself is gorgeous and looks completely different as compared to last year’s G4. In addition, it’s a modular phone that means you can attach accessories to it.
The company is pretty bullish about its plans for 2016, with its LG G5 company is proclaiming that they are “READY To TAKE Samsung On!”.

Apple’s iPhone, the biggest and well known phone on the planet Earth, and for this single reason it’s exciting to look forward what the company is going to do with its handset in 2016.
Apple has launched the iPhone SE, which is a 4in iPhone encased in an iPhone 5s chassis having iPhone 6/iPhone 6s specs.
Apple is tipped to be planning up two, large iPhone 7 models — the iPhone 7 Pro and the iPhone 7 plus. The iPhone 7 Pro will feature a fancy DSLR-like quality camera. This is all rumour at present, still, three iPhone 7 models moght be quite a shift in gears for Apple!

Microsoft acquired Nokia’s mobile business few years ago and doing what it does best — ruining it. But now the dust has settled and Microsoft has stopped using Nokia brand, the company can start producing handsets again and most importantly handsets that are not crippled with Windows software.
Nokia, the ‘NEW Nokia’ is looking forward to bring an Android-powered phone in 2016. This all looks very rumour-tastic but if Nokia is going to come back in 2016, with an Android handset, it would certainly be very interesting.
Motorola Moto G4 – July

There’s very little information about the specifications of new Moto G, but we would expect it to have same 5in 1,280×720 resolution display, potentially an improved processor in a renewed design – perhaps one of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 435 chips or the Snapdragon 625. We can expect an improved camera sensor, with the 13-megapixel sensor which is currently equipped in Moto G already, it’s more likely that Motorola will add new feature like optical image stabilisation.
