The 11 hottest iOS, Android, and Windows Phones you can’t buy yet

The Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8 just came out, but what’s next? If you’re like us and are never content with what you already have, then DT is here to help. There are a lot of exciting things coming later this year. It’s tough to keep track of them all, so we’ve put together this list of all the smartphones you’ll be drooling over by the end of this year.

On this page, you’ll find several phones we know are coming, but haven’t been announced yet. On page two we’ll get into some of the phones we know are coming, but have yet to hit store shelves.

Apple’s iPhone 6

iPhone 6 gold concept by Martin Hajek

Whether you’re an Apple fan or not, the iPhone 6 is probably the biggest smartphone release of the year. If the many (many) rumors are correct, the company is sticking with tradition, and this year’s model will be drastically different from those before it.

The biggest departure will be its extra large screen, perhaps measuring 4.7-inches, with a higher pixel resolution. There’s plenty more gossip, too. The screen could be covered in unbreakable sapphire; the body could be very slim; and of course, iOS 8 could take yet more bold steps forward. There’s also a chance it’ll be joined by the iWatch, and there’s even talk of a second, even larger iPhone coming soon afterwards. We should know more around September.

LG G3

LG G3 rumor round up

LG has continually upped its game for the last two years, and the rumored LG G3, its 2014 flagship Android phone, could be its best smartphone yet. The most exciting part? It’s looking highly likely that its 5.5-inch screen will have a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, which will make it the first device widely available with such a high pixel count. Other features to look out for include a new user interface, a possible octa-core processor, and 13-megapixel camera. The LG G3’s launch event should take place sometime before the summer.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

galaxy-note-4-concept1-1500x1000Talk about Samsung’s next phone and tablet hybrid has only just begun, but it’s already causing a stir. We expect the screen to be bigger than ever, at least 5.9-inches, and it may even be curved at the edges, making it entirely bezel-less. Like the LG G3, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 may also feature a 2560 x 1440 pixel screen resolution. It’s early days for Note 4 rumors, but we should expect at least a 16-megapixel camera, a waterproof chassis, and some flashy new handwriting recognition features. Samsung’s fond of announcing its newest Note phone during the IFA trade show, held in early September.

Amazon’s Fire 3D smartphone

amazon-smartphone-imageOne of the year’s most unusual phones could end up coming from a relative newcomer, Amazon. We’ve been hearing about its supposed plans to make a smartphone for years, but nothing has ever come of it, until set of leaked pictures made everything seem a little more real recently. If the phone does launch, it may come with a clever eye-tracking system to create a 3D user interface. We’ll have to wait to find out if this is the coolest feature ever, or the gimmick it sounds like, until Amazon finally makes it official.

HTC One M8 Mini

htc-one-m8-mini-2-1500x1000HTC spun off the popular HTC One several times, coming up with the One Mini and the One Max, so it’s logical to imagine it’ll do the same with the recently announced One M8. Rumors of the One M8 Mini have already started to spread. If they’re accurate, it’ll probably have a 4.5-inch, 720p screen, a quad-core processor, and Android 4.4 with Sense 6.0. However, it probably won’t have the One M8’s Duo Camera, and may shun the UltraPixel setup completely, in favor of a standard 13-megapixel camera. Hints have been dropped the phone will be headed to Verizon, and that it could be announced in May.

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom

samsung-galaxy-s5-zoom-leak-800x533Samsung’s follow-up to the Galaxy S4 Zoom, which may be named the K Zoom, Galaxy K, or a combination of both, is all set to be announced at an event later in April. Expect some major changes over its predecessor, including a thinner chassis, a larger screen and a faster processor. The good news is, if leaked pictures are correct, the camera lens should be flush against the body, but still retain a 10x optical zoom. We’ll bring you all the news from the event on April 29, when we’ll find out for sure what Samsung is going to name its new phone.
