Since the introduction of the Apple iPhone in 2007, the design and function of most modern smartphones have not changed much. And that appears to be the case this upcoming season. Nearly all of the phones are expected to be sequels to existing models.

PCs have been the same for decades. Laptops have been the same for decades. Smartphones will be the same for decades. Get used to it.

This is something that's confused me. You don't see a radical redesign every few years in cars, toasters, washing machines, and so on, yet for some reason in the technology industry people expect it. Solutions seem to solidify because they're pretty good solutions. That doesn't mean there isn't room to tinker, but expecting wholesale change every few years is ridiculous.
