The second a new phone gets released, people start picking it apart and wishing for features it doesn’t have. Whatever the reason, we’re never happy with the phone that we have. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of upcoming phones to look forward to. Here are a few smartphones that are worth getting excited about, but you’ll have to wait just a little while longer to own one.
Samsung Galaxy S5
The Galaxy S5 is perhaps the most anticipated android cell phone of all time. The S4 offered many unique features, including the dual shot, adding sounds to shots, air gestures, and more. The S5 will offer all of that and more, offering an unbelievable battery life (2800mAh), a 16MP rear camera, 2GB of Ram, and a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor.
As always, it comes in 16GB or 32GB versions, and you can upgrade all the way up to 128GB with a microSD card. For those of you who are looking forward to the Galaxy S5, you won’t have to wait very long: It’s expected to be available at most carriers on April 11th.
Like clockwork, a new iPhone will be released either late this year or early next year. People are already getting excited about it, despite the lack of details. Rumors are suggesting that the screen size will be increased once again, and it’ll possibly implement NFC or wireless charging. Whatever Apple adds, it’ll have to be huge, because it’s really lacking in the features department when compared to Samsung. Features from the 5s, like the fingerprint scanner, are likely to return.
Sony Xperia Z2
Sony recently launched the Xperia Z1, and it’s not wasting any time working on an upgraded version. The Xperia Z2 will have a 5.2-inch screen and a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, along with 3GB of ram. It’ll have front-facing speakers, perfect for those nights when you want to lie in bed and watch Netflix. It’ll also display 4K video, which is probably more than your television can do. It also launches very soon — April 10th, to be exact.
Nokia Lumia 930
Nokia’s back in the smartphone arena with the latest addition to its smartphone lineup — the Lumia 930. It has a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of ram, putting it almost as fas as the Samsung S5. The rear camera is a staggering 20-megapixel camera, so you’ll never have a blurry shot again. It runs Windows 8.1 out of the box. The Nokia Lumia 930 will land in stores in June.
The LG G3 will launch its smartphone with an amazing 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution display. There are no concrete details released about the processor, but rumors are suggesting that it has an octa-core Odin chipset that will power the G3. Rumors are also suggesting that the device will be waterproof, similar to the SGS5 and the Xperia Z2. There’s also no concrete data for the LG G3, only a rough estimate for May.
Though the Nexus 5 just released a few months ago, everyone’s looking forward to the Nexus 6. Though nothing is confirmed yet, it’s expected to have a 5.2-inch curved LCD display guarded with Corning Gorilla Glass, so it won’t shatter if you drop it. It’s expected to be powered by a 64-bit version the Snapdragon 800-series chipset and sport 3GB of ram. As per the usual, it’ll come in the standard 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB varieties, upgradable via microSD cards, featuring Bluetooth and NFC. It’s expected to launch late in 2014.
As the year progresses, it’s entirely possible that even more phones will be announced and launched, but as of right now, these are the six worth looking forward to. Which one catches your eye, and which operating system do you prefer? Leave a comment below.

I used to take pictures of anything when I was just starting digital photography. Now I don’t even want to take a photo of something without thought process.
Thought process I think is a big obstacle in my photography. I used to see beauty in almost anything.
I must bring randomness back.
Above photo was shot using a Canon T3 (1100D) and a 50mm 1.8 (nifty fifty).
Beauty is everywhere. I must capture it. Make it timeless.
