Best upcoming smartphones in 2013

We round-up the best smartphones launching in 2013

2013 has been the year of the full HD smartphone, where the latest devices blur the line between phones and tablets. There's been plenty of flagship releases already, but there's still more to come.

The biggest buzz right now seems to be around the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The company claims the 6.4in smartphone is the world's slimmest with a full HD display.

Not to be outdone, Huawei claims its new Ascend P6 is the "world's slimmest smartphone". It also has an "industry leading" 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

Finally, large smartphones seem to be as popular as ever and ASUS has just jumped into the game with the Fonepad Note FHD 6. It's a 6in Android smartphone that comes with a stylus and it's likely to compete directly with Samsung's Galaxy Note II.

Click through on each phone below to read our comprehensive preview of these upcoming smartphones.

Nokia Lumia 925

The Nokia Lumia 925 has many of the same features of its predecessor, but is thinner, lighter and uses an aluminum frame. The Windows Phone OS still has some annoying limitations compared to competing platforms, but the Lumia 925 is without a doubt the best Windows Phone yet.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
