The aging Apple iPhone 5S is already being stumped by its successor, the iPhone 6. While the iPhone 5S is still a mighty good phone in its own right, how much of an improvement can be seen in the iPhone 6? Sometimes, newer doesn't necessarily mean better.
The iPhone 5S was first released September of 2013 and is an iteration of the first iPhone 5, released 2012. The 5S had a 4.0-inch IPS LCD touchscreen with a display resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels. Inside is the old 32-bit A7 chipset with a dual-core 1.3GHz processor and a PowerVR G6430 GPU.
There are three storage options available for the 5S, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB all with 1GB of RAM and as per Apple device, it has no microSD card support. At the back of the phone is an 8-megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash and autofocus while up front is a 1.2-megapixel snapper. more >>
OnePlus, the company which brought the One smartphone, previously announced another pre-order window for the aforementioned smartphone on Nov. 17. Recently, it has also added that the pre-order window will only be open for one hour, the same time as the first pre-order duration last Oct. 27.
On the company's blog, Bridget Hickey said, "When the one-hour pre-order windows opens on November 17 at 16:00 GMT (8 A.M. PST, 11 A.M. EST, 9:30 P.M. IST), you'llbe all set to check out and complete your order with the click of a button."
"If we have the items in stock, we'll ship immediately. If we don't your order will automatically convert to a pre-order," she added. Customers are also informed that they won't be charged for the phone's cost until the item actually ships out, allowing them enough time to cancel their order should they change their minds. more >>
Samsung's latest flagship offering, the Galaxy S5, is already getting old especially with the release of Apple's iPhone 6, Google's Nexus 6, and even moreso Samsung's own Galaxy Note 4. While it's still too early to expect a Galaxy S6, the rumors are already making their rounds around the cyberstream. One thing's for sure, the next flagship handset isn't coming anytime soon.
Still, the South Korean tech company is already well on its way in developing the Galaxy S6 but there are reports that they are going to start the building process from scratch, with the plan being dubbed "Project Zero." Going by Samsung's product cycles, there are speculations that the S6 will be unveiled during MWC 2015 in March.
As for the specs, it's still wild game and nothing is certainly final. More than likely, the company will stick to its Super AMOLED screens. Screen size could go from the S5's 5.1-inch to anything as large as 5.5-inches. As for screen resolution, the company could match LG's QHD (2560 x 1440) screen in the G3 flagship or go 4K resolution (3840 x 2160). more >>
