Apple, the leader in smartphones with great hardware and software is facing a tough competition from Android based phones such as HTC one Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 3. An updated form of iPhone 5 and 5S, the iPhone 6 would surely unveil some serious technology into the same.
Apple has been known for its high quality screens and iPhone 6 will have a 4.8in screen, which would make the phone similar in size to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One. At this screen resolution, Apple could then move to a Full HD (1,920×1,080 resolution) or even go beyond. It may consider its screen technology with a Sharp IGZO(Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) to use less power and also super sensitive touch screen for pencils and gloves on technology.
Glaze technology, super 12-megapixel sensor with an f2.2 or f2.0 lens, 128GB storing capacity, NFC technology, Smart bezel for a secondary display system that illuminates controls when they’re needed, quad-core Apple A7, using ARM Cortex A15-based cores are more likely to be featured in the iPhone6.
The HTC One Max aka T6 is expected to feature a 5.9-inch Full HD display with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution. A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz is supposed to power the phablet. The HTC One Max will likely have 2GB of RAM, a 3300mAh battery and an UltraPixel camera. The HTC smartphone may also have “BoomSound” speakers. The HTC One Max will come with Android Jelly Bean, either in the form of Android 4.2.2 or the yet to be announced Android 4.3
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will also sport a 5.9 display similar to its other competitors with 1080p Display, Qualmomm Snapdragon 800 Quad-Core Processor and 13 MP Camera. It will only differ from its rivals from the angle of design. HTC One is supposed to adorn a metal body whereas; the Samsung model will have a plastic body. The Galaxy Note series sport an S Pen stylus that can take advantage of a number of unique applications. Samsung also has introduced powerful multitasking to the Galaxy Note series as well.
Pricing is going to be competitive for all of these devices. $299.99 is where the Galaxy Note has launched in the past and we can predict that Note and HTC devices will be using this price tag as their starting point. But for iPhone6 we can expect the 32GB model to cost £529, the 64GB model £599 and the 128GB model £699.
Galaxy Note 3 launch on anything other than the five largest carriers in the United States would be shocking. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon have all had success with the Galaxy Note 2 and now, the Galaxy S4. HTC this year branched off from exclusive carriers to a multi-pronged approach as the HTC One arrived for the four largest service providers in the U.S. There is talk of carriers being interested in the HTC One Max and that should come as no surprise.
It’s a tough war between the three and to know the future about them, we will have to watch the unveiling from Q3 of 2013 till next year.
