Many smartphone manufacturers are already expected to reveal their latest flagships in the first month (January 2016) itself which will set the tone for the whole year.

The year 2016 is expected to see much more happenings in the smartphone world compared to this year. While 2015 saw technology getting cheaper, 2016 may see few more new technologies being added to the devices. Many smartphone manufacturers are already expected to reveal their latest flagships in the first month (January 2016) itself which will set the tone for the whole year.

Here is a list of devices that are expected to be launched in January 2016.

Lenovo K4 Note
Earlier this month, Lenovo teased a smartphone which is expected to be the K4 Note. Just recently, Lenovo has issued another teaser confirming that the phone will have 3 GB RAM.

Besides, the so called Lenovo K4 Note is expected to have 32 GB of inbuilt memory, metal finish and fingerprint sensor. Not much is known about the so called Lenovo K4 Note but looking at the current K3 Note model, one could expect a really good device in a very competitive price point.

The Lenovo K3 Note, which is priced at Rs 9,999, features a 5.5 inch full HD touchscreen backed by a 1.7 GHz octa core processor and the Android 5.0 operating system. There is 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage and a 32 GB micro SD card slot in the phone.

The 8 mm thin Lenovo K3 Note weighs 150 grams with a 3000 mAh Li-Po battery that claims to offers 36 hours of 3G talktime. The handset offers a 13 megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash and a 5 megapixel front camera. The front camera comes with three lens element that claims to click distortion free images and there is auto selfie beautification feature as well.

This dual SIM smartphone offers 4G connectivity, WiFi (b/g/n) with Hotspot feature, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, FM radio, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS, and micro USB 2.0 port.

Samsung Galaxy S7

Samsung always releases its flagship device in the first quarter of every year. This time everyone is expecting the next flagship to be named as Galaxy S7 (as the last one named S6). Since the company launched S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ variants earlier, many are also expecting the S7 Edge and S7 Edge+ in 2016 as well.

There are however contradictory reports about the timing of their launch. While earlier reports indicated at the January launch, few reports are now claiming that Samsung may reveal these devices during the Mobile World Congress event in February.

As far as features are concerned, the S7 is expected to come with a pressure-sensitive screen, similar to 3D touch display of Apple iPhone 6s. Besides, it is expected to have USB Type C port, micro SD card slot, a 5.2 inch Quad HD display, 4 GB RAM, and the new Snapdragon 820 processor.

Xiaomi Mi 5
Xiaomi has been issuing teasers for its upcoming flagship, expected to be called as Mi 5, for quite a while. It too is said to have the pressure-sensitive screen, similar to 3D touch display of Apple iPhone 6s. An alleged image of the phone has also been surfaced some time back, showing the device with a home key.

Other than that the purported Mi 5 expected to have 4 GB of RAM, 5.3 inch Quad HD display, 16/64 GB internal storage, 16 megapixel rear camera and a 3030 mAh battery.
