Upcoming or recent phones 2015:

Oppo Joy 3

Oppo's Joy 3 is an attempt to bring joy to the brand's entry-level clientele, though its spec sheet does not come with anything new by 2015 standards. It sports a 4.5-inch FWVGA display, under which runs a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with Mali-400 MP2 graphics. The Joy 3 brings back Oppo's signature Pure Image 2.0+ camera toolkit via its 5-megapixel Soft Light rear camera and 2-megapixel selfie cam. Typical Oppo features like Screen-off/on Gestures, Beautify and Audio Photo are also in the mix. This ColorOS 2.0 (with Android 4.4 KitKat) model offers a 4GB storage and a 1GB RAM.

Archos 55 Helium Plus

The 55 Helium Plus is the 5.5-inch (HD) brother of Archos's 5-inch model of the same name, offering a free 16GB microSD card in conjunction with the Fusion Storage feature, which combines the internal and external memories into a single auto-managed block. Also among its specs are a 64-bit quad-core 1GHz CPU, a Mali-T720 MP2 graphics processor, and a 1GB RAM. Its 13- and 5-megapixel cameras might also take it to greater heights compared to many of its rivals. This Lollipop-sporting model comes with 2400mAh's worth of battery power.

Archos 50 Helium Plus

Though coming with a slightly smaller screen (5 inches) than the 55 Helium Plus, Archos's 50 Helium+ rocks a similar 64-bit quad-core 1GHz processor and a 13-megapixel back-facing camera. The Archos Fusion Storage, which allows you to merge the phone's native (8GB) and external memories, also adds to their shared specs -- no free microSD card for this one, though. This LTE-ready Android 5.1 Lollipop model also offers a 5-megapixel selfie camera, a 1GB RAM, and a 2000mAh battery. A Mali-T720 GPU helps out its main engine and the body SAR rating reaches 1.68w/Kg, a rarely seen level which is above the usual norm of 1.60.

Oppo Neo 5 2015

While it brings nothing new to the mid-range market, the Oppo Neo 5 (2015) does have several fresh specs over its 2014 predecessor. It sports a 4.5-inch FWVGA screen, under which is a double-layer metallic structure housing a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU, a 1GB RAM, and a Mali-400 MP2 GPU. The Neo 5 (2015) replaces the first model's 5-megapixel rear camera with an 8-megapixel one, but retains the 2-megapixel sensor for selfies. Also joining its specs is a 2000mAh battery. It comes with 8GB of memory, but sadly does not offer LTE like the Neo 5s.

Sony Xperia C4

With specs like a 5-megapixel Soft LED flash Exmor R camera, an octa-core 1.7GHz MediaTek MTK6752 64-bit processor, and a 5.5-inch Mobile FHD screen powered by the Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, the Xperia C4 is shaping up to be a high-end sequel to Sony's middle-class C3. It also boasts a 13-megapixel Exmor RS back-facing sensor, a 16GB internal memory (128GB microSD support), and 2GB's worth of RAM. The C4's software features include the xLOUD Experience, PlayMemories, and the Miracast Android technology. Wrapping it up is a 2600mAh STAMINA-Mode-enabled battery.

Samsung Galaxy J5

One of two June 2015 Galaxy J models from Samsung, the Galaxy J5 is the smaller and less advanced variant, sporting a 5-inch HD screen. It comes with a 2600mAh battery adorned with the Super Power Saving Mode, and offers the Samsung Smart Manager app, which provides visual performance data and clean-up utilities. The J5 sports a 13-megapixel f/1.9 rear camera escorted by a 5-megapixel selfie cam sitting atop its screen. Other specs include a 16GB native storage, a 1.5GB RAM, and a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. It is available in Black, White, and Gold shells.

ZTE Blade Qlux 4G

The 4.5-inch Blade Qlux 4G meets our expectations from a 2015 mass-tier Android, but by no means is it a cutting-edge device. It offers an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel (fixed-focus) front-facing sub-cam. The Qlux 4G runs on a quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6732M processor accompanied by a 1GB RAM and a 2200mAh battery. In terms of memory, it comes with an 8GB on-board storage with support for up to 32GB's worth of extra space via its microSD card slot. This 4G-ready model comes preloaded with Android 4.4 KitKat, but offers an optional upgrade to the Lollipop OS.

Sony Xperia Z4v

Shortly after unveiling the Z3+, Sony pitches the 4th edition of their flagship Xperia Z-series primarily via Verizon. The Xperia Z4v sports a TRILUMINOS 5.2-inch Quad HD screen, a Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor (2GHz + 1.5GHz), and an Adreno 430 GPU. Just like the Z3, it features the PS4 Remote Play, allowing you to attach a PS4 DUALSHOCK4 controller and play PS4 games on your phone. The Z4v comes with 3000mAh's worth of batter power, with the Quick Charge 2.0 (via USB port) and Qi-standard wireless charging among its power-up options.

This 2015 Android sports a 20.7-megapixel camera similar to the Z3's, but amps up the front cam resolution from 2 to 5 megapixels. It is loaded with 32GB of native storage and 3GB of RAM. Wrapping up its flagship spec sheet is an IPX8/6X waterproof and dust-tight shell.


Aiming to aid the One M9 in reeling in more HTC fans, the 5.2-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) HTC One ME boasts a 2.2GHz MediaTek Helio X10 processor, a 20-megapixel 4K rear camera, as well as a combination of BoomSound and Dolby audio enhancements. Also among its high-end specs are a 3GB RAM and a 4-megapixel HTC UltraPixel front-facing sensor, which used to be a main camera gig for the Taiwanese brand. It offers a 32GB native memory with support for up to 2TB's worth of extra storage via microSD. The One ME runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with the HTC Sense UI out of the box.
