I was thinking about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 when I decided to throw together a 2013 Hardware guide. While some of 2013’s Android flagships have already been announced I thought it would be fun to discuss upcoming features plus make a wish list for them. Anyone have any features they'd like to see on the upcoming offerings from Samsung, LG, Motorola?
Like all phones, they all have to play the hardware game, so spec-wise, they’re all going to be similar.
So far phones like the Huawei D2, Sony Xperia Z, etc have:
- 5" 1920x1080
- water resistance
- quad-core processors
- 2GB RAM
- 2500-3000mAh batteries
- 13MP camera
To me, the most important new features will be the bigger batteries and water resistance. The Note II has a 3000mAh+ battery which makes it one of the only 'full day' phones I've tried.
As for water resistance you no longer to worry about using your phone in the rain. You can send Tweets from the shower (Taking a shower! #clean #dropped the soap), post Facebook status updates (Howard is cleaning his junk), take pictures underwater when you're on vacation. Need I say more?
