Two phone makers that have been battling it out for a long time over patents are Apple and Samsung. While battles in court continue, there is another battle set to take place in the form of the Apple iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 in 2013.
Samsung Galaxy S4 vs iPhone 6: future wars
At the moment there is no confirmed news on the iPhone 6 but the Samsung Galaxy S4 is already in stores. However as we have seen with both these brands in the past, specs isn’t the only deciding factor. Apple are said to be refreshing the Apple iPhone 5 this year, while Samsung are thought to be bringing many more Samsung Galaxy S4 variants our way.
Rumours have been going around about Samsung since November when it was said that they would release the Samsung Galaxy S4 with a display of 4.99 inches and it would be full HD Super AMOLED. If turned out to be true and now we are even seeing models like the Galaxy S4 Active and ZOOM. Apple on the other hand for the first time since the start of the iPhone gave the Apple iPhone 5 a larger display, it has been suggested that they will keep this size but the display will be the IGZO display courtesy of Sharp; and the handset will have a 128GB model too.
It seems that Apple bump up the specs of the processor with each new handset they reveal in a very predictable manner. Hence we can expect a quad-core processor with possibly 1GB to 2GB RAM. The Samsung Galaxy S4 of course has its octa-cores.
The Apple iPhone 6 is thought to be coming out in the fall only.
There is a rumour that the Apple iPhone 6 is thought to have the 13 megapixel camera from Sony too.
Once again it looks like Samsung may have the numbers on its side when it comes to the specs sheet, however real world performance will only be known when we can actually test drive these upcoming flagships.
The iPhone 5S release date could land September 20th.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 has been out for months now as it first hit the United States back in April. The device is currently available on a host of different carriers and it won’t be going anywhere as we head into the fall. The device’s successor, the Samsung Galaxy S5, has been rumored for arrival next year, but it’s unlikely to arrive before the month of March, same month as the Galaxy S4 launch.
