    Well, the year 2017 is definitely going to be a great one in view of the new launches. Nokia making a come back is a big news for me. Then there are few regular flagship launches from the likes of Samsung, Apple and Motorola to new a few.
    The devices I would be looking forward to include :

    Samsung Galaxy S8
    Rumours have been doing the round that Samsung will drop the flat versions and as such we may see only the curved screen versions of Galaxy S8 Edge instead of the S8. It could be too early to make any solid statement in that regard. The resolutions are likely to be bumped. The processor is most likely to be Exynoss one given the shift that Samsung has been onto these days. However, you cannot rule out Snapdragon 835. The phones will obviously launch with Android Nougat customised by TouchWiz. I also expect the USB Type C port.
    Given the debacle that Samsung had to tackle with Note 7 issues, this could be a little hard task for Samsung to get back to the task in terms of reputation.

    Nokia Come back
    2017 will be the year to reckon with for us, the Nokia fans. Rumours have gone to state that Nokia will come with D1C and P1. We all are aware of the sturdiness of Nokia and the durability factor that the brand has enjoyed in the past. We just need to see how will it fare after the couple of years.
    Nokia D1C will be a mid-range device and will come with Snapdragon 430 processor. The full HD device is supposed to be available in two variants of 5.2 and 5.5-inch display size. There have been rumours indicating that the phones will have Carl Zeus lens and a 21 MP sensor. P1 will be a flagship device with quad HD display and a metal build. The new offerings from Nokia have been rumoured come with finger print sensor as well. Recent rumours have suggested a launch of 6 to seven models in the year 2017.

    LG G6
    Though it may be named differently, LG will come with a successor to LG G5. There are no rumours that there may be no huge differences in the new device. The modular design will, reportedly, be ditched. The phone may have USB Type C port.

    Apple iPhone 8
    Well, that is the launch almost everyone is looking forward to. iPhone 8 may not see huge changes from its predecessor. I would expect a metal and glass build. I would hope to see the introduction of wireless charging. Along with iPhone 8, we may also witness iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus.
    There are expectations of some radical changes if rumours are to be believed. The new Apple flagship is likely to be launched in September, 2017.

    Samsung Galaxy X
    Samsung Galaxy X is believed to be a foldable smartphone. There is no word on the exact spec sheet of the device as yet. The phone is likely to have Snapdragon 835 processor and a hiked up resolution - possibly 4K. The phone is expected to have a flexible screen and AMOLED at that.

    One Plus 4
    The phone is likely to launch in the ceramic version. It is rumoured to be coming with 6 and 8 GB RAM - may be the first time in the smartphone arena. It can have a 5.3 inch display with a resolution of 4K. The phone may also have dual camera setup on the rear.

    HTC 11
    The next flagship of 2017 from HTC is likely to be named HTC Ocean. It will have a metal body construction. Rumours suggest chamfered edges. The Ocean will come with 5.5-inch display and QHD resolution. You are likely to get 12 MP and 8 MP resolution cameras on the rear and front respectively.

    Those were a couple of phones making their presence felt in the year 2017. There are other possible competitors like Microsoft Surface and Honor P10 as well. The most interesting points to note would be the competition that Nokia would be putting ahead of its rivals and Samsung's plans to bring back its reputation.

    Live....and Let Live!

    Here are some of the phones that are releasing in 2017. Some are expected to be launched after the MWC 2017. So there are lot of good phones coming up shortly.

    Microsoft Surface Phone

    Microsoft and Nokia are split and now Microsoft is forced to innovate for their options to stay market. So this time Microsoft is coming up with new phone. Here the device is going to be targeted at people buying mid range phone. It will have the Windows 10 with universal apps support. The series is going to feature the new Intel's Kaby Lake processors. They may introduce the Continuum feature too.

    BlackBerry Mercury

    Blackberry is far from dead. And they are coming up with one device a year formula now. Though they have lost most of their users with the Android. And now they are adopting to this new change. Based on the rumors, it is heard that Blackberry is not giving up on the QWERTY and they may include it like Priv. This mid range phone will have 3GB RAM and 32 GB Storage. The display is likely to be 4.5''.

    Xiaomi Mi6

    Hugo barra maybe out of the Xiaomi but that doesn't mean Mi phones are going to halt on same series for more than a year. They are launching Mi6 in 2017 with 4GB RAM options. It seems the Mi6 is likely to have Nougat update before Android rolls another update. The device is expected to be released around September.

    Sony Yoshino

    Sony's codename Yoshino phone is likely to get released in second quarter of year. It seems the device is likely to have 5.5-inch 4K display. The device is expected to have Snapdragon 835 processor. There are not many speculations on the ROM update and the base version of the Android. For that I guess the company may update the device details on MWC 2017.

    Samsung Galaxy X

    Samsung is finally releasing the X series phone this year. And they have also leaked few images of the phone. The code name of the phone is "Project Valley". It has yet to set on the price point but we may learn about that in few months. A lot of device details are expected to be around second quarter of the year.

    LG G6

    LG is going to be releasing it's new premium phone G6 in this year. And it seems the device is likely to have the 4K display. Also the RAM is likely to be 4G variance. Lot of design changes and the improved battery life. So this seems to be one good phone to look at. It is also going to be the device to support the VR gear that LG is likely to release soon.

    HTC 11

    In the first quarter of 2017, the HTC's new phone 11 is going to be released. Not much details on the specs except the phone is likely to have 12mp camera. Also the snapdragon processor with octa cores. It is likely to be mid range phone. It may come up with waterproof design but nothing confirmed on that front. Performance of the battery is also good.

    Nokia E1

    After the success of DC in Chinese market. It seems the Nokia is going to be releasing the E1 in March in Asian market. And may arrive in India during the April. The cost of the phone is likely to be 12999 Rs. No specifications are leaked as of now. But the name of the devices being released as of yet. You can expect Edge, P1 and Z2. So there are plenty of mid range phone coming from Nokia soon.

    Depending on the new updates on Android's update, it is likely possible that Google may come up with new version of Pixel phones too. But this is yet to be confirmed so we may have to wait till the second quarter of the year.
