Apple iPhone 7 May Have 16 MP Camera and Flat Edges

Leaked images and rumors related to the Apple iPhone 7 do not seem to fade away. Recently, it has been reported that the new phone will not move away drastically from the look of the iPhone 6. However, the images designed by Tomislav Rastovac and Ivo Maric seem contrary.

Apple iPhone 7Concept iPhone 7 at a Glance

If their rendering of the iPhone 7 is to be believed, it will be a blend of the iPhone 6, iPhone 5 and iPhone 4 with glass panel at the front as well as back. Apart from glass panel, the phone is also designed to have flat edges.

The dream phone is not just about the look but is expected to feature A10 processor, Quad HD Retina display and 16MP camera along with 2.5D sapphire glass.

If the phone will come with wireless transfer and wireless charging, as the concept phone suggests, it will attract significant attention from new buyers.

These will be the iPhone 5S and a rumoured cheaper iPhone that has been called the iPhone 6 Lite or the iPhone 5C.On the 10th of this month, Apple will be releasing two new iPhones at a special media event. These will be the iPhone 5S and a rumoured cheaper iPhone that has been called the iPhone 6 Lite or the iPhone 5C amongst other names.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has made several visits to China fuelling the rumours that a cheaper iPhone is in fact on its way to better target the emerging markets of China and India, largely untapped by Apple so far.

Expect the iPhone 5S to have all the cool new specification and features – like the biometric finger print scanner. Not that the iPhone 6 Lite will be a shoddy device but it will not be as advanced as the iPhone 5S.

Expect the specifications to be more like the iPhone 5 – a 4 inch screen, A6 processor and an 8MP rear camera. What is very interesting is that the iPhone 6 Lite is to have a plastic body, it won’t be easily scratched for sure, but it will not have the trade mark Aluminium body of all Apple devices.

Totally Crushing On Samsung Galaxy S5 Vs Apple iPhone 6, Octa Core Processor, Bendable Dispaly, 2GB RAM

Samsung has been doing extremely well in the smartphone segment and has in fact it has become the largest seller of all phones. But the Samsung Galaxy S4, which started off as being a high seller soon fell flat. It hasn’t been able to hit sales numbers like the previous Galaxy S3 or even the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2. Meanwhile the iPhone 5 has become the best selling iPhone ever. With the new iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6 expected to be released soon it certainly looks like Apple is gearing up to take back some of its lost market momentum. But Samsung will not stand by and just let this happen, latest analyst reports indicate that Samsung might in fact pre-pone the release of the Galaxy S5 to tackle its competition.

Samsung has always given Galaxy S phones the best of specification. So it is likely that the new Galaxy S5 will have an octa core processor, some even think that a 16 core processor is likely. Like the iPhone 6 the Galaxy S5 is expected to have 2GB of RAM. One of the biggest gripes that people have had about the Galaxy S4 was that it was just too similar looking to the Galaxy S3. To that end expect the Galaxy S5 to opt for some new form features – most analysts expect the phone to have a carbon fibre body. And this last point will be its biggest plus in the battle against the iPhone 6. Undoubtedly the iPhones have always been some of the best looking smartphones out there and if Samsung decides to make the Galaxy S5 better looking than the Galaxy S4, they might just be able to turn the table on the iPhone 6.… Read the rest

iPhone 6 Expected by 20 September: We Dig Into Some Concept Videos

Yes, latest reports say that a new iPhone will be out by the 20th of September and it could be the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5C or the iPhone 6. In the meantime fans of the iPhone have continued posting up concept videos for the iPhone. Since most believe that the iPhone 5S will just be an upgrade for the iPhone, most of the more radical concepts are for the iPhone 6.

Water resistant iPhone

This is definitely one of the big ones for me. It seems only inevitable that Apple eventually goes this way with Sony and Samsung already having tried their hands at it – with varying degrees of success. ConceptiPhone has a nice video out for a water and dust proof iPhone, perfect for those with an active lifestyle.

Folding Screen

Many people have come out with concepts for a folding iPhone, some are very well thought out. While some concepts have screens that bend into a curve, the best ones I’ve seen is by Ran Avni that actually folds into a larger screen that can be used almost like an iPad.

There are many more such concepts available online – hopefully Apple is listening, because fans of the iPhone are telling it exactly what they want!
