To be honest - there has been no innovation this year thus far & not much hope for the rest of it either. Innovation in my opinion is a feature in hardware or software that is truly useful & that nobody else has thought of implementing in their offerings. Said feature need not necessarily be cutting edge or a quantum leap in technology. Sure H2 will see a note 4, a larger iPhone & hopefully z ultra & one max successors. But again they are going to feature customary upgrades in CPU speed & camera megapixels. But nothing out of the box. Maybe one of these brands might have a surprise up their sleeves
