The reports are in and it's official, Samsung Galaxy S3 is possibly one of the greatest phones ever made. It's sleek design, amazing display, and the most recent hardware leaves hardly anything to be desired. The recent release of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will possibly break sales records for Android smartphones. Samsung has recently been crowned number one for the production of mobile phones. However, Apple is still the biggest manufacture of smartphones with Samsung closely nipping at Apple's heels.
With the highly anticipated release of the iPhone 5, Samsung will definitely need an even better successor. As we get closer to the release of iPhone 5, questions have risen about the Apple CPU A6. Is this new SOC a dual-core Cortex-A9, like the iPhone 4s, or something entirely different.
Iphone users are well aware of the ongoing short battery life issue with iPhones. According to reghardware.com Apple's battery suppliers are having great difficulties with the increased demand. Supposedly, these analysts expressed concern over the Chinese portal Sina.com. The delays caused a high scrap of about 70 percent in production, because they did not meet Apple's requirements. Based on this ratio, it could move the release of the iPhone 5 into September or October, according to the Chinese side.
Display of the iPhone 5
The first five-generations of the iPhone were all equipped with a 3.5-inch display. Now the first 4-inch test devices seem to be in use. It is supposedly to be equipped with an apparently large 3.999-inch display with the unusual resolution of 1,136 x 640 pixels. The width of the display will change accordingly, and not remain at 5 centimeters. Measurements are rumored to be125mm by 58.5mm by 7.4mm, says the Apple blog iLounge.com.
3D camera or optical zoom?
According to iTechPost.com the new iPhone will be equipped with a 3D camera. Apparently an Apple employee's family has presented the new iPhone. A family member then informed the employees of iTechPost. Due to the space required, it is assumed that the iPhone will not be equipped with two five-camera lenses, but rather with a 3D software. Using AirShare, photos and videos could be "thrown" on a 3D display, for example with the Galaxy S3 this is possible.
On the website of the U.S. Patent Office, there are plans by Apple to lift the phone's camera to the next level. It could be possibly a removable rear cover with integrated optical elements. In the lid are also control chips and a small battery that connects to the circuit of the iPhone. Such a optical zoom, image stabilization, an additional, a real flash with its own power source and a mechanical shutter function is possible. The additional camera cover is currently technically feasible and would be a really cool accessory for the upcoming iPhone5.
According to 9to5Mac, the next iPhone is equipped with the energy-saving Broadcom 4334 wireless chip. The new chip also supports Wi-Fi (b /g / n), Bluetooth 4.0, FM radio, dual-channel WiFi and WiFi-Direct. This would open the way for the ad-hoc service AirDrop on IOS devices.
Terry Gou, CEO of Hon Hai, the company that is owned by the Foxconn factory, expressed at the shareholders' meeting of Hon Hai , urging "consumers to wait for the launch of the iPhone 5." "Apple's iPhone 5 to put Samsung's Galaxy III to Shame," said Gou. Samsung and Foxconn have a bad relationship with one another, as Gou said in his own words, "it's his life's work to beat Samsung."
