Below is a summary of the rumors that have circulated so far on the launch, design, operating system and other specs.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
The Galaxy Note 2 is expected to come with:
- a powerful quad-core Exynos processor/dual-core ARM-15 processor,
- a camera with a resolution of 8 MP with improved sensor/12 MP,
- 2 GB RAM,
- new Exynos 5250 chipset
- and a battery with increased autonomy.
The handset is also rumored to feature a display that uses unbreakable plane technology (UBP), an incipient shape of a flexible screen that Samsung is developing.
The AMOLED screen could measure 5.3 or 5.5 inches, it will feature a resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels and it is also expected to be thinner.
It is speculated that Galaxy Note 2 will come with the new version of Android: 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The new smartphone is expected to be released in September or October this year, as we mentioned at the beginning.
It is rumored that the iPhone 5 will have:
- 1 GB RAM,
- a new ARM processor,
- a new graphics chip,
- a larger 4-inch screen,
- a 1136 x 640 pixels resolution,
- a 16:9 screen ratio,
- quad-core processor,
- 8 MP sensor with a larger aperture of f/2.2, front camera with HD resolution
- and a case thickness of 7.9 mm.
A modified design (but not too much), a new battery and of course a new operating system are also among the new features expected to arrive with the device.
The launch of the next iPhone depends on the release of the iOS 6, and we expect that the next version of the operating system will arrive with the device this fall.
Also, the future iPhone will likely have 4G LTE connectivity and Apple could build the touchscreens for the device using a new “in cell” technology.
As for the launch of the sixth generation iPhone, it is rumored to be in the fall, in September or October, just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
