What awaits us?
Oculus Rift: It is the most famous VR glasses, but still not in the market. These glasses will come in the month of April: Oculus Rift consumer version will arrive in early 2016. Its cost in the pre-order is $599. If you’re buying now, moreover, it delivered in July.
HTC Vive: Another interesting headset, made by HTC in collaboration with Valve. That company once made games like Half-Life and now owns gaming platform Steam. Probably the Vive will, therefore, focus on games. It should come out in April.
PlayStation VR: Sony also brings a VR glasses on the market this year. It is the PlayStation VR, which is to be used with the PS4. These glasses have games like clear focus and should be released in the first half of 2016.
Small iPhone: Rumors persist that this year Apple will bring a new budget phone on the market. IPhone 5SE (or maybe iPhone 6C?) Might appear in the first half of this year. The device would be a 4-inch screen and a slightly lesser specs than the iPhone 6S. We are curious.
iPhone 7: With a little more certainty to say that this year Apple will release the iPhone 7. And that’s exciting because it’s not an S model, so we can expect major changes in the design again. Does Apple abandon the home button? Will there be an OLED screen? On these questions, we will probably get a response in September, when the company usually presents new devices.
Project Ara: What about the fact with the modular phone from Google? Ara project began as the Phonebloks project by the Dutch designer Dave Hakkens, but later became part of Google. In mid-2016, the first consumer version will come to market. Read more about: Best Upcoming Smartphone of 2016
You see them everywhere yet, but tech companies put a lot on smart watches. Also, this year there will again come new gadgets, but we are looking most forward to these two.
Apple Watch 2: Is it time for the second generation Apple Watch? In 2015, Apple’s first smart watch appeared on the market, but maybe the company will launch this year S version or completely new watch on the market. Maybe there will be a round model, but perhaps the design remains the same and the focus is on speed and performance.
Samsung Gear S3: Samsung is working hard on new wearables, the company has already on the market. The Gear S3 will possibly come to the end of this year.
Also in terms of laptops, we expect great new gadgets from the big boys again. How about this:
Macbook Air 15 inch: In recent years, the MacBook Air has become much lighter, what they do with the size this year? Rumors speak of a 15-inch model in 2016. Whether that happens or not, we still hope for a Retina screen.

Project Aura: Google acknowledged in 2015 that the Google Glass was not ready for the consumer market, but that does not mean the product is not developed. We need a new version of Glass which is likely to be clicked on existing spectacles. it would get a bigger display and can do up to two hours with a full battery. Google expected to showcase the device by Mid to End-2016.
