Yes, Samsung finally took the wraps off its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4. And we’ve already heard about how Apple’s busy trying to get the iPhone 5S out soon to be a temporary contender to the Galaxy S4. But we’re really eager to know more about what Apple will bring out next, the iPhone 6, as we see that to be the real competition to the Samsung flagship. But then again, since Samsung is yet to unveil its Galaxy Note 3, will the real competition be between the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy Note 3?
Apple iPhone 6: In all likelihood, given the amount of flak Apple received for its 4-inch screen iPhone 5, we can expect the iPhone 6 to come with a bigger screen. But according to the latest rumors, Apple will probably use a Sharp IGZO screen on the phone as well, which would allow the company to make the iPhone 6 thinner and more power efficient. We can also expect more storage, maybe even 128 GB in the new iPhone 6. Hopefully, in terms of connectivity, we will finally get to see the iPhone with NFC – a sore point that has been lacking in the Apple smartphone. Given that all the new smartphones have quad-core processors and Samsung’s got octo-core processors in its devices, hopefully the iPhone 6 will also receive a significantly powerful processor. Another big change we can expect is that the iPhone 6 could come with a completely redesigned iOS 7 interface – because not much has changed in the OS since it first released and we think users could be getting bored.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Let’s start with the latest rumor we’ve heard – Samsung is expected to put in a flexible and unbreakable screen on the upcoming Galaxy Note 3. The company had showcased these screens during CES 2013, leading to speculation that the Galaxy S4 could have such a screen. But now that the Galaxy S4 is out, we think maybe Samsung’s saving this one for its Galaxy Note 3 instead. This means that this device could be a lot thinner and lighter. We’ve heard that it could have a screen between 5.9 and 6.3 inches wide and could be powered by a Samsung Exynos 5 octo-core processor and 4 GB of RAM. We’re also hoping to see Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie on the device as well as a 16 MP rear camera.
