These are the gadgets to Look out for in 2015 - Maggcom


When someone says gadgets, the first thing that strikes our mind are cell phones and The smartphone wave of 2015 promises to bring us devices that are expected to come with more refined looks, perform faster, snap better images, and have longer-lasting batteries. But it is not just that, we have wearable smart phones and virtual reality coming true this year.

Here are the 11 best gadgets you can upgrade to or buy in 2015:


Expected Release Date : April 2015

With a series of mishaps, a sexist marketing campaign, and a confusing invitation-based system, the OnePlus One quickly started becoming a OnePlus Annoyance for its wanna-be buyers. Rumors have been flying around for a follow-up, though, a OnePlus Two of kinds. Hopefully, the company has learned from its mistakes, and the rumored smaller (some say 5.2″) OnePlus Two could finally offer us that lucrative combination of a good price and flagship-grade specs.


Expected Release Date : September 2015

The Moto X started a new chapter for Motorola under Google in 2013, and while it was not a technological wonder, it offered wondrous customization options. Moto X (2014 edition) showed that Google is learning from its mistakes, as it fixed the specs on the Motorola flagship, bringing it on par with the competition, and then… Lenovo acquired Motorola.

Waiting to see what the Moto X (2015 edition) brings as Lenovo has confirmed that it will continue using the Motorola brand in many markets.


Expected Release: Late Sept. 2015

With rumors all around for a jump to larger screen sizes that allow for more laptop-like productivity, it would not be surprising to see the new Kindle Fire tablets jump to a 12″ screen size, or even slightly more. As always, we also expect great price, top-notch hardware, and Amazon’s heavy custom skin on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop.


Expected Release: May 2015

Microsoft has perfected the hinge mechanism, and the add-on keyboards are a great addition for the Surface lineup, but the big novelty we expect in the 2015 Surface Pro 4 is a new and more efficient Intel Broadwell 20nm chip. This should contribute to an even longer-lasting battery, and improved performance, something that would add just one more reason to consider the Surface over a traditional laptop.


Expected Release: July 2015

The one Xiaomi phone that you should really care about in 2015 is the expected Xiaomi Mi 5. With a price for its flagships traditionally at half that of other, well-established companies, the Mi series still crams in the latest of specs in an impressive package.


Expected Release: May 2015

The LG G4 might be the first phone to launch with an in-house LG system chip, and continue in the footsteps of the LG G3 – continuing to improve on the 5.5″ Quad HD display formula. LG has also traditionally maintained slightly lower prices than its rivals, putting price pressure on the big ones like Samsung and force them to innovate more.


Expected release: Early March 2015

The HTC One (M8) set a new standard for a refined, sturdy, stylish all-aluminum Android device, but that UltraPixel camera with its poor, 4-megapixel resolution just did not seem to be on par with what everyone else offered in terms of image and video quality. The One (M9) might finally kickstart the return to glory for the ailing company. After all, that style and the fast and smooth Sense software are assets that not many other Androids have.


Expected Release: Spring 2015

There have been rumors about a 12.2-inch iPad Pro model for quite a while, but it seems that 2015 will be the year when Apple will finally be ready with the big announcement that will change the face of its iPad lineup, and could change the definition of a tablet. The iPad Pro is speculated to replace the 7.9-inch iPad mini. The new and larger iPad will come with its focus on productivity and we would not be surprised if Apple updated iOS for iPad to include a multi-window multitasking option.


Expected Release: spring 2015

The Apple Watch was announced in September along with the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The watch is set to hit markets early 2015. It will have different designs and apps that users can modify.


Using your finger print to unlock you phone is cool, but using your heartbeat is cooler. The NYMI band will be a new smart wearable that lets users unlock their phones, cars, computers and even homes by using their heartbeat to authenticate the user. Your heart will now be able to truly open doors.


The virtual reality gadget has generated a lot of buzz in the past year with developers, but a consumer version will finally hit the market in the summer of 2015. Virtual reality has gained a lot of popularity with the video game industry, tourism industry and the entertainment industry. Virtual reality has also attracted a lot of companies to produce their own gadgets, Samsung and Sony will also release VR head gear.
