Apple’s phones have always been one of the best around the market, and this time I don’t think it will be different. But what should we expect from the iPhone this time? Well, to know this, we need to take a look at Apple’s biggest rivals so far: Samsung and Sony.
For this we need to take a look to their newest phones, so we can get an idea of what to expect. So here is a chart with the most relevant information of both phones.
Now this two look pretty solid. Not only they support 128 GB of memory, but also have incredible cameras that can record with a resolution of 2160p! This allows videos to look better, especially when you see them in bigger screens.
But what should we expect from Apple and what do we know so far? Well, first let’s start with the size of it. TMZ leaked a few photos of the new iPhone, comparing it with its predecessor, the iPhone 5.
As we can see, the new phone will be bigger and some case makers have announced cases for this new device before it even comes out. So it’s more than a rumor that the screen will be 4.7-inch, which is not as big as its competitors, but that doesn’t mean is bad. Also, a rumor says that there also will be a 5.5-inch version of it, but we will have to wait and see.
Also what we should notice is that both, Samsung and Sony, have implemented measures of protection to their screens. Apple this time plans to implement a new kind of screen, called “sapphire screen” which it is suppose to be unscratchable and flexible, so it will be pretty hard to break. Still is also rumored that Apple may not implement this technology immediately (perhaps we may have to wait for the 6S to see it).
Now we will talk about the internal memory of it. Both the Z2 and the galaxy S5 Have a memory up to 128 GB which is a lot compared to other phones. We should not expect less from the iPhone and in my opinion we could expect even more from it, maybe they will bring a 256 GB model.
Following next, lets talk about the RAM. Some rumors say that it will have 1 GB of RAM, but we should not forget that the operative system of the iPhone not only is more stable, but also faster and more fluid than the competition, and they proved that with the iPhone 5 so, I don’t think that will be a problem.
And the amount of RAM will be even less relevant with their new processor A8 quad-core, leving us with a faster phone. This is a well received improvement from their previous one, leaving the A7 dual-core way behind. Combined with the new iOS, it will give the speed and performance that apple users are used to.
Finally, let’s talk about the camera. Last time Apple integrated an 8MP camera to their phone and some people claim that they will keep using the same this time. Other people say that they will upgrade to 10MP, but this is still a rumor. Yet the camera on the 5S was pretty good, and I think and upgrade is not really that necessary.
