We will be talking about the best of new mobile smart phones coming in 2017 & 2018 in this article. As you know there are recent smart phones already making wave in the mobile tech industry.

The best new phones of 2017 and 2018 will offer faster performance and longer battery life. Some will use the new Snapdragon 835 chip for which headline performance figures include 25 percent faster graphics rendering and half the power consumption compared to the Snapdragon 801.
You can expect this processor to be paired with at least 4- but potentially as much as 8GB of RAM, a minimum amount of 32GB of storage, extra-large Quad-HD screens and class-leading cameras.
We've already seen some great smartphones announced earlier this year, including the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, LG G6, HTC U11, Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Xiaomi Mi6 and OnePlus 5. These are all now on sale, so we have removed them from this slideshow. However, here are some more great phones coming in the next 12 months.
Apple iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus
Apple is set to go big on the iPhone's 10th anniversary, which could go some way to make up for 2016's relatively minor upgrade. A combination of design and hardware changes should make the iPhone 8 the most radical new iPhone to date when it launches in September 2017.
The iPhone 8 could be the iPhone with which Jony Ive finally gets his own way: an iPhone that resembles a single sheet of glass with an edge-to-edge OLED screen.
Other rumours suggest the iPhone 8 will feature wireless charging for the first time, and possible biometric features such as facial recognition or iris scanning. It'll run the Apple A11 processor and motion co-processor, and be devilishly fast.

Google Pixel 2
The next Google phones are said to include waterproofing and an improved camera that excels with low-light photography, as well as a curved screen and the Snapdragon 835 processor.
The key difference between the two is expected to be screen size and resolution, with the larger Pixel XL2 featuring a 5.99in Quad-HD screen and the smaller Pixel 2 a 4.97in full-HD panel. The XL2 should also feature 6- rather than 4GB of RAM.
We know that the new Google phone will be the first to run Android O, for which the public beta is now available. The Pixel 2 itself won't be available until late-September/early-October 2017
The LG G6 (pictured) hasn't been around for long but there are already some rumours emerging about the next model.
It's thought that the firm will release the LG G7 as early as January 2018 pegging the launch at CES 2018. This would give it a head start against major rivals such as the Galaxy S9.
Another rumour suggests that LG is already wroking with Qualcomm and the G7 will be the first with its new Snapdragon 845 processor.
Microsoft Surface Phone
Should it truly exist, the Surface Phone is expected to arrive in 2017 with a 5.5in Quad-HD AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM, 64- and 128GB storage options (with microSD support), a 64-bit Intel processor and 21Mp rear- and 8Mp front cameras. The Surface Phone could also get a Surface Pen and a USB-C port.
