2012 is going to be the year when Quad core processors will reach mobile phones, they will get around 1GB of RAM, get HD screens, and all in a package of less than 5 inches. Rest assured, this is going to lead to some very very interesting applications of mobile phones as and how users exploit it.
Best and Most Anticipated Phones of 2012 are:
Samsung Galaxy S 3:
This android phone is among one of the most expected phones in 2012. Samsung has consistently launched phones in their flagship Samsung Galaxy S series which have always been game changers. Expected to have an Super AMOLED+ HD screen at 720p, and a screen size of 4.6 inches, along with their own chipset, the Samsung Exynos 4412, a quad core processor with speeds upto 1.5GHz. A major camera update is also expected which will completely remove the shutter lag, while increasing the quality on the camera as well. It is expected to launch by Q3, 2012.
HTC One X
The One X were revealed at the MWC this year, and after a long time, HTC may give Samsung a run for its money. One X, HTC’s flagship model, comes equipped a 4.7” screen with a beautiful S-LCD 2 display, running at a 720p HD Resolution. The camera on this has been updated to a f/2.0 8MP camera, which is quite exceptional, considering even the iPhone 4S doesn’t have a f/2.0 camera. The real beast behind this beauty however, is the NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip it runs on, with its 4+1 cores, at 1.5GHz. Definitely one of the best buys of 2012. The best part: Its already available.
Nokia Pureview 808
Just one thing: a 41 MP Camera. That is the one thing that separated this camera from the rest of the pack. And its not just a numbers thing either. The sensor size is actually bigger than what you get in most cameras. While the sensor does have that many pixels, the photos you shoot will be compressed into a smaller file combining pixels for a better photo. Zooming in will not pixelate photos, and it will have Carl Zeiss Optics. It will have both a Xenon Flash (for photos), as well as a LED light (for Video Recordings). The only thing missing from this will be the Windows Phone moniker, probably because of the extremely tight restrictions of the software. All in all, a must have phone for Camera Buffs.
Well, all we have on this one are rumors. Rumors say that the iPhone will have a bigger screen, with a bumped up resolution, along with the new A5X chipset, or maybe a completely new quad core A6 processor. A new body is also expected, along with support for LTE, and a new dock connector, possible smaller than the one that Apple currently uses. It is also expected that the Camera will sport a dual LED flash setup.
Blackberry BBX OS, and Windows Phone 8
They are not strictly phones, but new operating systems which are very much being waited for. BBX is Blackberry’s real fight. They’ve been losing market share ever since iOS and Android era began, and BBX is supposed to be their real fight in the ring.
Windows 8 is also Microsoft’s big bet. Windows 7.5, IMO was a big failure. It was outdated when it was launched. No support for Multi-core processors, ceiling cap on the maximum possible resolution, and so on. Windows 8 on the other hand is supposed to have seamless integration with its desktop cousin, and vice-versa. It will be interesting to see how Microsoft exploit’s its position as leading OS manufacturer for PCs.
