2016, will be a battle ground for Display, Camera and RAM Technology, and, also for in-house manufactured Chipsets, specially by LG and Xiaomi.
We have zeroed down on few Smartphones, and sharing with you.

Not to force, Intelligent Force Touch. Another point to watch for is the capability of Optical Zoom and higher capacity in terms of Memory.

Though 1+2 is promoted as Flagship of 2016, But, 1+2 failed two impress in two fields, One is future communication and other one is Battery. Starting December 5th , Oneplus went for open sales of oneplus 2, which clearly states arrival of New Smartphone.
What will Oneplus call this Smartphone ” Flagship of 2017 ?? “, My my Oneplus is already ahead of time.

- Snapdragon 820 with 5GB / 6GB RAM

6. Nexus Modular Phone
Also known as Project Era. If Google is successful with the project, and this phone comes in Market on mass production, I am sure all the Flagship Models will have to look for the market, where Modular Smartphone is not launched.
What’s so special about Modular Phone : You can assemble a phone of your choice. If you want to upgrade the smartphone, simply change a Module, and you are having the latest Smartphone.
You will never run out of battery, as you can simply replace the battery module with another one, and feel charged up.
