The iPhone 6 is nearing the release date. Recent reports claim that this new device from Apple will feature gesture-detecting sensors much like that of Kinect controller of Xbox. Indeed, this has emerged as an alarming reality for the iPhone 6 since Apple has apparently acquired the firm that has built this cutting-edge technology.

If a recently released report from news major Reuters is to be believed then PrimeSense is an Israel-based chipmaker and it is one of the companies to have made it to Apple’s folio, . PrimeSense majorly develops three-dimensional sensors that find applications in mobile devices as well as home appliances. This has created a possibility that the gesture control feature will also make its way to the Apple TV, iPhones as well as iPads, particularly the next-generation models.

The deal between PrimeSense and Apple is pegged to be at a whopping 345 million dollars as per the report released by Reuters. Reuters pointed to Calcalist, Hebrew financial daily as its source for this new information.

Some other high-end devices also feature Kinect-like capabilities. 3D scanners are one of the advanced devices that use the Kinect-like capability and PrimeSense has a strong presence when it comes to developing such capabilities.

There is a high possibility that this advanced technology will be shifting to Apple from Microsoft at the beginning of the coming year. However, nothing has yet been confirmed by the tech giant, as well as by PrimeSense.

For now, it is clear that the PrimeSense buyout or the incorporation of gesture-control capabilities to the future devices of Apple are being viewed as mere rumors and speculations. It is also being stated that the acquisition is directed more towards the planned improvement for the Apple TV.

The Debut of Debonair Apple iPhone 6 : Why We Expect a State of Art iPhone Against Samsung Galaxy S4?

The spotlight is on iPhone 6 as this would be the device that is supposed to change the game in favor of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Plenty of speculations are doing rounds in the techie world and expectations are high about the look of the Game-Changer.

It’s a do or die situation for the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and if the device is not beyond the dreams of its fans and investors, neither of them would be the takers. Taking the example of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON: BC94) (KRX: 005930), the Galaxy S4 is not well received and investors are turning away. Some analysts consider that Apple’s stock price is actually being affected by Samsung’s slumping Galaxy S4 sales.

All the new smartphones in the market are not up to mark and only offering some upgrades here and there, not enough to attract buyers. An enterprising challenge for Apple lies ahead as the consumers are not satisfied with mere upgrades; rather they are waiting for an all new Apple this fall or next year.

We can only say that take your time but unveil something which is essentially state-of-the-art.… Read the rest

Apple iPhone 6 Vs Samsung Galaxy S4: With A Smaller Screen Size, How Would Apple Compete?

According to Glen Yeung, Citigroup’s analyst, the iPhone 5S will be unveiled in September to be followed by 4.8-inch iPhone 6 in Q1 of 2014. He further admitted with estimations by Wall Street that Apple is not willing to increase the screen size of iPhone this year.

Some display issues in iPhone 5S is likely to affect the production of this next-generation smartphone and will be responsible for any delay. However, the launch date is not going to be affected and only the volumes of handsets in the market will be consequently challenged as referred by Yeung.

Yeung also expects that iPad 5 would be similar to iPad Mini in all aspects other than its size and some prospect of a higher-end solution like the MS Surface Pro.

The research note by Yeung states about the possibility of a cheaper variant of the iPad Mini with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels at around $230 to $250 too.

Apple may not announce any hardware related launch other than a MacBook refresh as WWDC is around the corner, opinioned by Yeung, rather the company would like to focus on the iRadio to open up API to its developers.… Read the rest

Samsung Galaxy S4 Has A Class Appeal, Would The Class Apart Futuristic Apple iPhone 6 Connect With Samsung Enthusiasts ?

As good a year as 2012 was for Samsung, we can’t really say the same for its archrival Apple. Even though the two tech majors’ courtroom battle is nowhere nearing its end, in terms of sales and popularity however, Samsung did end up emerging as a clear winner. And 2013 also seems to be a promising year for Samsung, going by the way these past few months have been.

After the extremely successful launches of the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2, Samsung recently brought out its latest flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone which has captured a lot of media attention even before hitting the market. Of course, simultaneously, there have been a lot of expectant rumors around what Apple’s busy making in response to this latest gadget.

The iPhone 5 wasn’t received too well, and Apple has enough on its mind trying to ensure that it doesn’t end up losing precious market share when its successor comes out. But there’s also the iPad, which even though is still the most popular tablet in the world, is losing out to Android contenders that are offering much better specs at more reasonable rates.

While Apple’s immediate concern against Samsung is to bring out a good enough iPhone 6 which can possibly aim to try and compete with the Galaxy S4. And from the rumors we’ve heard, it’s going to be one hell of a fight between these two companies all over again. If the Galaxy S4 has eye tracking and floating touch features, the iPhone 6 is rumored to come with a wraparound display, making both these devices extremely futuristic. Against the more successful Galaxy Note 2, Apple’s planning to include a stylus-like accessory with its iPhone 6. But knowing Apple, the stylus can be expected to do a lot more than just be used as a pen for scribbling notes on the wraparound screen.

And then of course, there are rumors about the iWatch, which has been in the making for quite some time now. Of course, to make matters worse (yet again!) for Apple, Samsung has also decided to step into the game and has announced its intention to create a smart watch. Apple’s iWatch is expected to an iPhone that users can wear on their wrists and do everything and more than the iPhone. In addition to functioning as a smartphone, the iWatch is also expected to help monitor users’ health like other fitness wristbands in the market.

Sure, it sounds all fancy, but now that Samsung’s getting into this space, Apple better make the iWatch too extremely feature-packed to ensure that Samsung doesn’t steal the show again. Even though Samsung has had to shell out about $1 billion to Apple thanks to the patent infringement lawsuits, it has hit upon a winning formula – do what your competition’s doing, but better.

While Samsung’s got mass appeal, Apple’s always been considered a class apart. But maybe it’s time for Apple to step down from that high horse and connect with real people to increase their target market and make more sales. It’s not just about being innovative – make technology more accessible too. That’s where it has lost out to competitors so far.

According to one of the analysts in 2014 with the advent of Samsung Galaxy S5 Samsung will steal the top slot from Apple.

“Samsung is probably taking its last steps in Apple’s shadow,” he added. “In 2014 it will transform the computing and online experience, in a way that is unique to its own vision. Critics who think it lacks vision need to think again.”

According to Shaughnessy  in Samsung future plans there is a place for innovative screen technology which might be bendable  and there are possibilities for a new operating system ‘Tizen ‘.
