Coming soon

OnePlus 6 Phone

The OnePlus 6 is set to be unveiled later this month, just six months after the 5T went on sale. There’s strong evidence to suggest the new phone will have a glass back — possibly for fast charging. Under the hood, expect 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.

Samsung Galaxy Phones

Our favorite phonemaker from South Korea is also preparing something new. While the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and S10 will be incremental upgrades, expect to see a folding display on the high-end Galaxy X sometimes between August and next March.

New iPhone? (Credit: iDripNews)

Apple iPhones

No rumor section would be complete without Apple. The main theory is that the next iPhone will have an enormous 6.5-inch OLED display. We might also get universal face detection, three-lens cameras, and a cheaper option.

What’s your favorite product release from the past year? And what are you looking forward to in 2018? Tell us in the comments!

Mark is best known for writing about apps, but he also loves the tactile, hardware side of technology. Being a professional photographer, he's pretty handy with a camera, and he's a self-confessed tweetaholic.
