8. LeEco Le Max 2 Pro Extreme

One of the most anticipated Chinese smartphones in 2017 could be presented in the current year, namely at the autumn exhibition in Berlin, where traditionally a parade of new models on the mobile market is being made. However, without disclosing the reason, the manufacturers decided to postpone the inspection until December-January. Le Max 2 Pro Extreme is an advanced version of the popular Le Max 2 flagship. It will receive a Snapdragon 821 processor or even, perhaps, 830, the OS will be Android Nougat. Fans will be pleased to take a photo camera in 25 megapixels and flash memory 128 GB, which will go into the basic configuration. Another promise QHD screen diagonal 5.7 inches;it seems, among the novelties the smartphone will be the biggest.

Live it will be demonstrated on the strength in the second quarter of 2017.Meanwhile, Taiwanese developers promise users a smartphone with a screen of 5.5 inches and, possibly, a resolution of up to 4000 pixels, a Snapdragon 830 chipset and a 4000 mAh high-capacity battery.

6. Microsoft Surface Phone

Although the popularity of Windows on the mobile market is getting smaller, Windows smartphones are still quite known among users. Although the promised novelty will not come out before the third quarter of 2017, but the imagination of users is worried about the future and not yet named processor from Intel, RAM of 6-8 GB, a screen of 5.5 inches of tempered glass and QHD resolution, a powerful 4000 mAh battery and a huge ROMin 512 GB.

4. OnePlus 4

Previous model OnePlus enjoyed such an incredible success that the manufacturer did not have time to supply the market with the required number of devices. However, there is a danger that the next model, OnePlus 4, may not justify inflated expectations. The gadget's premiere can be expected at the end of the second quarter of 2017, but for now there is very little known about it: the Snapdragon 830 chipset, 8 GB of RAM, the Android Nougat OS, the 4000 mAh battery and the screen with a resolution of 2000.

1. Apple iPhone 7S / 7S Plus

And the first place in the top of the most anticipated smartphones in 2017 is a new mobile device from Apple. As expected, it will differ in the same style and technical perfection( complete with an unreasonably high price), as the sixth version. While it is known about the new iPhone is depressingly small: a new iOS 11, AMOLED-screen, Apple A11 processor and a dual camera. And, to the chagrin of the brand lovers, 3.5 mm audio port will not be. According to statistics compiled by iNotes4You, the sales volume of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus was 231 million devices, the model topped the rating of smartphones in 2016.Curiously, whether the seventh model will be able to outdo this record.
