The hottest phones we’re waiting on this summer

There are a bunch of phones that have already been shown off, but we’re still waiting for our chance to actually buy them. Here are some of our favorites.

Sony Xperia Z2

sony-xperia-z2-3-1500x1000Announced at Mobile World Congress in February, some Xperia Z2 smartphones have made it into the hands of a few customers, but the U.S. is still waiting for firm news of its arrival. When it does go on sale, you’ll get a gorgeous 5.2-inch, 1080p display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 20.7-megapixel camera, and Android 4.4.2.

OnePlus One

oneplus-one-02-1500x1000OnePlus is a new name in the smartphone world, but it has really grabbed our attention with the OnePlus One, its debut device. Priced at $300 for the 16GB model, the phone has a 5.5-inch 1080 screen, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, and a sleek magnesium body shell. The exact release date hasn’t been confirmed, but it’ll be out in the U.S. before the end of June.

Nokia Lumia 930

nokia_lumia_930_family-2-1500x1000Nokia showed off the Lumia 930 at Microsoft’s Build 2014, and it’s all set to be one of the first phones on sale with Windows Phone 8.1 already installed. Along with the new operating system, which includes Microsoft’s virtual assistant Cortana, the 930 has a 5-inch, 1080p screen, a quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 20-megapixel camera. The phone is very similar to Verizon’s Lumia Icon, and should be on sale in June.

Nokia Lumia 635

nokia_lumia_635_range-2-1500x1000Another Nokia Lumia phone revealed at Build 2014, the Lumia 635 will offer Windows Phone 8.1 fun on a budget. It’s the 4G LTE equivalent of the Lumia 630, and has a 4.5-inch, 854 x 480 pixel resolution, a Snapdragon 400 processor, and a 5-megapixel camera. The best thing about it is the price, which should be around XX

Oppo Find 7

oppo-find-7-004-1500x1000Oppo’s latest phone is one of the first to be announced with a 1440p screen. It will be available unlocked, without a contract, through Oppo’s online store. However, don’t dismiss the Find 7. We liked the Oppo N1, and the new Find 7 looks equally cool. The 5.5-inch screen has that amazing resolution, the camera can take 50-megapixel pictures, and the device is powered by a Snapdragon 801. It’s the first Oppo phone to have 4G LTE as well. We’re expecting the final release date to come sometime in May.
