    If you have a Google account on your phone, all of your contacts are automatically sync to your Google Account. A good way to check is to open your Gmail and look at your contact list. All your contact on your phone should be on the list.

    Once you get your new phone and after you enter your Google Account and password, you're asked if you want to sync your Google Account (I forget if this is auto or not) but your contact is on your new phone.

    When you're in your Gmail on your computer, look in the top left corner (Ignore my Gmail theme) where you see "mail", "contacts", and "tasks"...

    Once you have your contacts saved here, all you'll have to do is sign into your phone and BOOM all your contacts will automatically sync up with Google via the cloud. :)

    Also my advice is whenever you add a new contact in your phone, save the contact via Google instead of saving it to the phone (Phone should give you this option when you add a contact). This will add them to your Google contacts and auto sync in the future with new phones when you sign in.
