According to the tech press, there are some (and we quote) “stunners” coming in 2016. Here, Susan has rounded up 7 of her favourite latest and ‘coming soon’ models.
Susan’s Seven Smartphone Stunners
1. iPhone SE
Apple are calling their latest Special Edition iPhone “the most powerful 4-inch phone ever”. The best way we can describe it: on the outside it’s a 5s and on the inside it’s a ramped-up 6s. In other words, it’s an “iPhone that looks small. But lives large.”
2. Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge
Available now from Source Telecom, both Android Marshmallow phones return with a MicroSD slot, waterproofing, and bigger battery. The press call it the “best phone money can buy” whilst the Samsung website brags “this is what a perfect balance between form and function looks like”.
3. Google Nexus 5 2016 and Nexus 6 2016
Last year, Google announced two new Nexus smartphones for 2016. The launch of these phones will no doubt prompt Google’s annual Android update which the tech press are calling Android N until a formal announcement is made.
4. HTC 10
Earlier this month HTC announced its new smartphone, the HTC 10. Rumoured to be available from the first week in May and available for pre-order, HTC are calling it a “smartphone crafted with obsession”.
5. Huawei P9 and P9 Plus
Huawei’s new flagship phone that is set to rival the Galaxy S7 and LG G5 (and according to the press takes “a sideswipe at Apple”) launched in London at the start of this month. The techies are going crazy over its dual-lens rear camera, co-engineered with Leica. The Huawei website calls it “a historic pairing”.
Fall in love with the features here.
6. LG G5
Available now, the G5’s “transformative design featuring slide out battery and modular functionality” is a first for LG. I’m liking its always-on screen; very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

7. Sony Xperia X and XA
Available for pre-order now and, according to one major online retailer, set to be released on 20th May 2016. The new X series of smartphones certainly look different to the Z series – and I for one am happy that it’s goodbye to the square/block-feel frame and hello curves with rounded edges.
