What can we expect in the world of mobile phones in 2015?

There may be some surprises on the way in 2015. Will OnePlus come up with a ‘flagship killer’ that’s actually possible to get hold of without having to join a waiting list? Will an unknown Chinese manufacturer steal the show? Will Blackberry’s annual sales hit double figures? These, as yet, are unknowns. In the meantime, here’s a summary of what (according to the rumour mill) we can expect from the year’s big releases…

2015 in a nutshell…

The first platform for the big names to set out their wares is the Mobile World Conference (MWC) at the beginning of March. Here, the headline event is likely to be Samsung’s unveiling of the Galaxy S6. Expect Sony and Microsoft to jostle for attention with their flagship offerings too. Hang on for a few weeks and you’ll see HTC’s follow-up to the M8 while the summer should bring the LG G4. The back end of the year tends to be dominated by the latest offering from Apple (either the iPhone 6S or the iPhone 7) with the next addition to Samsung’s Note range brightening up the winter months.

Samsung Galaxy S6

As reported by PC Pro, the specs according to a leaked benchmarking test suggest the following:

  • Runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop – but no doubt with a variant of Samsung’s TouchWiz skin)
  • Samsung Exynos Octa-core processor
  • 1440x2560 pixel, 5.5-inch touchscreen (putting it in the same size bracket as the iPhone 6 Plus)
  • 20MP rear camera and 5MP front camera
  • 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage
  • There’s also an outside chance the phone will feature a retina scanner 

HTC One M9 ‘Hima’

 HTC

The information already leaked about HTC’s premium offering for 2015 suggests the following:

  • A 5.2-inch display
  • Super slim (7mm) aluminium body
  • Octa-core Snapdragon chip
  • Abandonment of the ‘ultra-pixel’ concept on the camera

Sony Xperia Z4

By all accounts, the next big addition to the Xperia range is worth waiting for if you want a state-of-the-art camera and you’re into high-res audio. Likely features include:

  • A 5.2-inch screen
  • Quad HD display
  • Camera featuring a plane phase detector capable of tracking movement to produce blur-free action shots
  • A dedicated amp for high-res audio playback

Microsoft Lumia 1030

Lumia 1303

Based on unconfirmed rumours and photos from China, Microsoft could have the following in store for us:

  • HD display resolution
  • Quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and 32GB internal memory with micro SD card support
  • Metallic bodywork with what looks to be a huge camera on the rear
  • Camera could also boast 50MP definition and a 4th generation short-pulse LED flash

LG G4

Early indications from South Korea suggest the following likely improvements on the extremely well-received LG G3:

  • Flexible screen technology
  • A super slim bezel so the screen will take up virtually the entire front of the device
  • Likely to be powered by LG’s very own new Nuclun octa-core processor to allow for 4G speeds up to 300mbps

iPhone 6S or iPhone 7

It’s still far too early to give much credence to the speculation that has already started in relation to the next iPhone. Nevertheless, here’s a few of the features that have already been predicted…

  • Two lenses on the camera for near-DSLR quality photography
  • Wireless charging features
  • Liquid metal construction – helping to keep the body as light and thin as possible

Things move quickly in the mobile world. On top of these headline grabbing models, expect the big names in mobile phones to come up with plenty of compact and phablet variants as well.
