2013 has been a very productive year as far as the smartphone market is concerned. We have crossed half of the year and there had been numerous releases and launches so far. The interesting fact is that, there is a long list still waiting. The list is full of smartphones from major cell phone manufacturing companies. Those devices are getting ready in their cocoon. Soon they all will be emerging. We have picked top 10 smartphones from the upcoming list. Let us go through them first and decide which one will be the most anticipated one. Here comes the list:
10.LG Optimus L4 II:
Its only very recently that the flagship smartphone or rather phablet from LG family – the Optimus G Pro released in India. The device had been available in the other parts of the world. Just that it made its entry to the Indian shores only very recently. As the G Pro is a bigger device, both in size, specs and price, the world is waiting for the next device from the company.
As per the latest rumours, the next device from LG would be the Optimus L4 II. The device will be running on Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) Operating System. The device will be having a 1000 MHz Cortex-A9 Processor. That means improved speed and performance rate. The phone will be providing good connectivity features to make sure that you are always connected with your dear ones. The device will be powered by a strong Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery, which will be providing adequate life for the smartphone. There are no rumours about the price tag of the smartphone. But we expect a price tag of around 20,000/- rupees for this smartphone.
9. LG Optimus L4 II Dual:
As the name indicates, the Optimus L4 II Dual will be the Dual SIM version of the LG Optimus L4 II smartphone. Other than the difference in the SIM capacity, there will not be any change in the spec list, we guess.
Just like its single SIM twin, the Optimus L4 II duos will be packing Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) Operating System, along with 1000 MHz Cortex-A9 Processor. Just like its sibling, this Dual SIM Optimus L4 II will be having a 3MP camera. The device will have the same Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery. And we expect the same price tag for this smartphone too.
8.Sony Xperia Z Ultra:
There is no doubt that the Xperia Z smartphone has been the best smartphone Sony ever produced. It had released a while ago, and still it is a hot device. The huge success of the smartphone gave the company enough courage to dare for other devises like the Xperia SP, Xperia ZR etc. The upcoming device from the company under the Xperia series will be the Xperia Z Ultra smartphone.
