1. Apple iPhone 8
If you’re loving your iPhone 7 now, wait until you see the awesome features of the upcoming Apple iPhone 8. It is expected that Apple will overhaul the phone’s design for their 10th anniversary this year.
Rumor has it that Apple will swap its liquid-crystal LCD display for one made of organic light-emitting diodes or OLEDs which will wrap around the phone’s edges.
Since OLED displays are thinner, you can expect that the new Apple iPhone8 will be lighter and more flexible than ever.
It also seems like Apple wants to make the feature more functional by enabling the phone to reach when you touch its sides (not just one).
2. Nintendo Switch
This new generation console from Nintendo will hit the ground running this year. The release was announced October last year when the Japanese game giant Nintendo claimed that Nintendo Switch will reinvent gaming.
This is a hybrid device that transformed a traditional home console to a device with detachable controllers.
Nintendo’s last release was ten years ago when they introduced Wii U. Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well and they ended up only selling 13 million Wii U consoles worldwide for ten years.
This year, they are very positive to release this amazing console in March 2017 and they’re hoping for better sales.
