Apple iPhone 6 Re-Design On Cards—Will A Patent Change The Face Of Apple Against Samsung Galaxy S4?

The iPhone 6 is in making. It has been in making for too long! Is the apple iPhone 6 going to be an iPhone or a phablet? Or would it be a tablet to pop into your sling bag? No matter what, we are tired of the wait! Perhaps, this piece of info could wake up back from the slumber of Apple iPhone 6 dreams.

Seems like the makers have patented a flexible display. This means that you could test the bendable limits of the iPhone 6 and yet get to see how the screen holds up all its components. On deeper thought, this means the makers have shuffled and juggled all its erstwhile skeletal ideas.

The patent could means getting hands on “A consumer electronic product includes at least a transparent housing and a flexible display assembly enclosed within the transparent housing. In the described embodiment, the flexible display assembly is configured to present visual content at any portion of the transparent housing.”

Apple could do well with speeding up the release of the iPhone 5S at least, for now. Perhaps getting the 5S could console us on the longer wait anticipated for the iPhone 6.

Apple iPhone 5S Vs LG Optimus G Pro Vs Samsung Galaxy S4: Turned Inside Out—Not Impressive

Wonder how the iPhone 5S will look like from within? Here is a snippet that could get you talking. Despite knowing that the iPhone 5S would just be an upgrade and not a new avatar from Apple, I still wanted it to surprise me with new bits. But my thought crumbled right at the time I spied the same processor from iPhone 5 punched into the 5S.

Perhaps a silver lining in the cloud comes in the form of a quad-core A7 processor coupled with a promise of 2GB LPDDR-800 RAM. However, before going overboard on the amazement this holds for users, remember—this is just a probability. Perhaps prayers could translate the same into reality.

Multitasking might get groovier on the iPhone 5S. in a market flooded with so many kings—Samsung Galaxy S4 LG Optimus G Proand the Sony Xperia Z—Apple indeed needs to climb up the ladder to wear the crown of emperor.

Amid such leaks, users are sincerely keen to get hands on a peppier iPhone. Perhaps the iPhone 6 or even the 5S could wrap in brighter specs and candier colors. For now, I am waiting to bite the Apple the 5S’th time.… Read the rest

Google Nexus 5 Might Put Apple iPhone 6 To Sleep Even Before It Emerges To Life

Artists conceptualize images even before the canvas arrives. Same for smartphone enthusiasts. When the spaces and allied renditions are ready, why not take a shot at fixing the popularity counters for both of these. The race for glory begins!

The Apple iPhone 6 is probably set to be Apple’s first foray into the phablet arena and the iPhone 6 seems akin to a gladiator in its avatar. Given that its predecessors were not as good as we anticipated, this time the makers will tighten its belt well. With Apple promising to sow seeds that could lead to a juicier iPhone, let us wait and watch.

The Nexus in its LG avatar was worth a date or tow but this has only catalyzed our appetite to see more of romance with the Google Nexus 5. With a better camera as compared to any of the Nexus elder siblings, this Android-backed device could steal the show on arrival.  With a tradition of its big brother beating the iPhone 5 to bite dust, the Nexus might be the next big thing.… Read the rest

Samsung Galaxy Mega vs. LG Optimus G Pro vs. Apple iPhone 6: Which Titan Would Win The Phablet War?

Now that we’ve pretty much figured out that Apple’s brand new iPhone 6 would be a phablet offering, we wonder whether it would be a preferred choice over the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Mega phablets or even the LG Optimus G Pro flagship phablet. What do you think?

Samsung Galaxy Mega: Samsung’s on a roll with the recent success it has had in the smartphone market, and to make things even better, the company is planning to announce two new Galaxy Mega phablets, one with a 5.8-inch screen and the other with a 6.3-inch screen. From the specs we’ve heard so far, looks like these two will be in the affordable price range. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is expected to be powered by a dual-core 1.7 GHz processor and would run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Fitted with an 8 MP rear camera and a 3,200 mAh battery and 8/16 GB of internal storage, the phablet will have features like AirView, Multi Windows and Pop Up Play. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 will have a qHD display, a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor and an 8 MP camera, but will come with only 8 GB of internal storage.

LG Optimus G Pro: LG’s flagship device smartphone for 2013 comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display, with a 401 ppi count. Powered by a quad-core 1.7 GHz Krait processor and 2 GB of RAM and running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, it has 32 GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. There’s a lovely 13 MP rear camera and a 2.1 MP front-facing camera and a huge 3,140 mAh battery included.

Apple iPhone 6: From the rumors we’ve heard, looks like Apple’s bowed down to the choice of the people and is planning to make the iPhone 6 a phablet, but with the same dimensions as the existing iPhone 5. We’ve heard that Apple could get rid of the home button, making the phone’s screen larger and even possibly do away with the bezels. It’s also possible that Apple could offer the iPhone 6 in multiple screen options – ranging from a Mini to an XL. There’s also going to be a brand new A7 processor. The iPhone 6 could have a 5.5-inch screen while its resolution remains unknown.

Will Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Breathe Fire Onto Apple iPhone 5S This June?

Having come across the saying “too many cooks spoil the broth”, throughout my childhood, a recent snippet about Samsung’s new launch made me recall the adage. Strange thoughts aside, I am slightly overwhelmed with so many Samsung smarties infiltrating the market.  With the Samsung Galaxy S4 just hot off the mill, the market is now buzzing with talk of its kiddy avatar—the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini.

While an April release was on cards, our sources have dug out another piece pointing to the Galaxy S4 Mini launch only in June this year. Probably, Samsung wants an open combat with Apple iPhone 5S or perhaps the iPhone 6. We do know that Samsung believes in fighting competitors royally not behind curtains.

Instead of musing over a titanic battle, let us look to the how Samsung will christen all variants Samsung might offer on its Galaxy S4 Mini palette-

  • Standard Galaxy S4 Mini- GT-I9190
  • GT-I9192 Dual Sim laced Galaxy S4 Mini- GT-I9192
  • LTE-laced Galaxy S4 Mini- GT-I9195
  • Galaxy S4 Mini for China- GT-I9198

The only missing piece in this rumored puzzle for the Samsung S4 Mini launch is that the makers are yet to confirm such a product. However, rumors often translate into reality in the world of smartphones. Tired? Keep counting the stars in the Galaxy until then.… Read the rest

Apple iPhone 6 May Not Be At Its Innovative Best To Spell Serious Trouble For Samsung Galaxy S4

Now we all know that if there’s one thing we can expect from Apple, it’s innovation. But maybe we take our expectations a bit too high when it comes to Apple’s devices. A case in point is the iPhone 6 and its features, about which there are so many rumors being discussed the world over – ranging from the quite obvious to the quite ridiculous.

Apple is expected to bring out the iPhone 6 sometime early next year or possibly even by late this year, but the fans are eagerly waiting to grab one of these. Here’s a few rumors we found really interesting about the iPhone 6.

One of the first rumors we’d heard is that this iPhone could come without a Home button and with no bezels. Now this would make the phone looks extremely futuristic and would definitely set it apart from its competition especially Samsung Galaxy S4. But is it practically possible, especially since it’s become such an integral part of Apple’s iconic design for its devices? We highly doubt it.

And then there was the rumor about the wraparound display. While we think Apple could possibly put in a flexible screen on the iPhone 6, we don’t think you could roll up the device to fit it in your pocket – that’s a little too extreme.… Read the rest

Apple iPhone 6 Vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Phablets In The Bottle Ready To Pop-Out?

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.… Read the rest

Lack Of Awaited Features In Samsung Galaxy S4 Fails To Satiate The Curiosity Of Fans, Apple iPhone 6 Gets An Edge

When it comes to the management of device launches and revelation of awaited information –Apple certainly scores over Samsung.

Lack of in depth information regarding the much awaited features and attributes of the recently released Samsung Galaxy S4, has failed to satiate the curiosity of media watchers and users waiting to get their hand on this widely acclaimed smart phone. Well, we really do not want to get you talking about the features of your favorite brands or undertake their comparative study. We simply want to bring the limelight on the effective way in which Apple Inc. handles its product launches.

Well, Apple certain goes all out for the kill in its device releases. Right from oozing out minor details about the product in the initial phase to letting go of more refined and mainstream information in the next stage—Apple manages to build up the much needed hype around its gadget, which continues until the day of the launch. Leaving you wanting for more.

It goes without saying that Samsung has disappointed many of its fans in the US with its new Galaxy S phone launch affair in New York. Despite best efforts, the company left behind several questions in the minds of those waiting for more information on the product.

Be it the release date for the Galaxy 4 or its price—we are still guessing.

Apple iPhone 6 Should Challenge Samsung Galaxy S4 Convention And Redefine The Power Of Smartphone

Now that the Samsung Galaxy S4 has finally released, speculation is rife on what archrival Apple is keeping itself busy with. Even as we wait to get a glimpse of the partially updated iPhone 5S, we want to know more about the iPhone 6 – which would probably come out sometime next year. Because we believe that only a completely redesigned iPhone can hope to take on the likes of the Galaxy S4. So what would we like to see in the iPhone 6?

Very powerful processor: With Samsung having put in a quad-core 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor and an octo-core 1.6 GHz Exynos 5 processor in the Galaxy S4 models, a dual-core processor like in the iPhone 5 just isn’t enough. If Apple really wants to up the ante, it needs to put in a far more powerful processor in the iPhone 6. We’re not saying go octo-core like the Galaxy S4, but how about a bump up to at least 4 cores?

Better camera: The 8 MP camera on the iPhone 5 will sink into oblivion against the Galaxy S4’s 13 MP camera. Also, Samsung has put in a ton of advanced functions into the phone to let users have more fun clicking pictures on the phone. The iPhone is traditionally known to be a treat for the shutterbugs, but we’d like to see more than just 3D panorama in the iPhone 6. Burst modes and filters are also turning passé, and we’re still not sure what the future holds for us in smartphone cameras.

Brand new iOS: Don’t get us wrong – we love how fluid iOS is. But it’s been sporting pretty much the same look since the first iPhone came out a few years ago. So how about something that looks radically and refreshingly different on the iPhone 6?

Flexible storage: We hate that the iPhone never comes with a microSD card slot – so if Apple really wants to garner more fans, maybe they can get a little more considerate and include a microSD card slot in the iPhone 6. Because in the future, even 64 GB isn’t going to be enough – and not too many of us really depend on the cloud for our entertainment.… Read the rest

Apple iPhone 6 Vs Samsung Galaxy S4: Can iPhone 6 Take Away Woes Of Apple iPhone 5?

No, we did not make any mistakes in the heading – we are talking about the iPhone 6 indeed. While Apple sets to work on bringing out the iPhone 5S soon enough to take people away from the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4, we highly doubt its capabilities in actually pulling the crowd towards it. In our opinion, the real crowd-puller, show-stealer against the Galaxy S4 from Apple could only be the iPhone 6.

The Apple iPhone 6 could also support wireless charging, like the Galaxy S4 is expected to have. In terms of screen size, given how much of the iPhone 5’s failure was attributed to its small screen size, we’re expecting the iPhone 6 to have at least a 4.8-inch screen to compete with the Galaxy S4’s 5-inch display. But this could come at a price – Apple could possibly remove the sole Home button from the phone.

We’re hoping that Apple puts in at least a 12 MP rear camera in the iPhone 6 and of course, the much missed NFC capability as well. To make the phone more futuristic, maybe the iPhone 6 could have an onscreen trackpad or controls on the sides for gaming enthusiasts. We’re also wishing for the iPhone 6 to come with a brilliantly refurbished iOS 7, and possibly a stylus too.

In terms of processing power, hopefully Apple will up the ante by putting in a quad-core processor to take on the Galaxy S4, which is expected to come with either an octo-core or a quad-core processor.… Read the rest
