With Apple’s iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 slated for September release, we feel that HTC One should gear itself up for some tough competition as we hear the former bulls plan to lock horns with the latter.

With various innovative and top-notch smartphones hitting the spots, decision making has become a tedious task. With two new devices slated for release, Apple and Samsung might just make 2013 all the more interesting. Read on as we reflect upon three major devices of 2013 including HTC One, iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that are hard-to-miss devices.

So far, so good. Starting with HTC’s flagship the One, this Android-based device boasts of a 4.7-inch touchscreen with a full metallic body and a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Running on 1.7 GHz Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 processor, this smartphone brags a 4-megapixel camera and has already tipped users off the board.

Coming down to Samsung’s next release- the Galaxy Note 3, the Android-based phablet is expected to sport a polycarbonate case. With a 5.99-inch SAMOLED Full HD display, the Note 3 is speculated to boast an Exynos 5 Octa-Core (8-core) processor, Mali 450 (8 cores) GPU and 3GB RAM. We also hear that the device is betting on a 13-megapixel camera.

However, Android may not be your only choice, as rumors are abuzz regarding Apple’s plans to uncover its iPhone 6 soon. Speculations surfacing around the iPhone 6 claim that the device might run iOS 7 and will have a 1080p full HD resolution. The next-gen iPhone 6 might claim a 4.8-inch screen with a 13-megapixel camera along with other top-most specifications.

With all the aesthetics, features and functionality, all three devices are top-notch. They are all like a pie in the sky, in just different flavors. Take your pick.
