The Samsung Galaxy S5
This will be the flagship phone for Samsung in the year 2014. The S5, though continuing upon its design features like the previous galaxy series’ flagship models, feels much better and packs a puch in features segment. No, we are not just talking about latest Android version – KitKat, what we are talking about is godlike AMOLED screens with 560 ppi, and a revolutionary ISOCELL camera technology. The ISOCELL camera sensor technology, a mind blowing innovation which allows you to capture stunning images even if you are a novice photographer, was previously shown in one of the conferences held in 2013, and will be integrated with every smartphone model coming out in 2014. This new technology is slated for commercial production and integration at around February 2014. Along with this there are roumors that the S5 will debut the much awaited 64-bit Exynos chip for Samsung. S5 is also rumored to be dust and water resistant, which we feel is now a norm for every flagship smartphone.
iPhone 6Apple has already gathered a storm with the popularity of iPhone 5S and 5C. Both smartphones are performing surprisingly well, considering the fact that it was rumored that iOS7 is not a killer OS. Apple is very tight lipped on the specification of the iPhone 6 but we managed to grab a few details. First thing is that iPhone 6 will feature a new OS, the intuitive and simplistic iOS 8. It is rumored that the smartphone will come with a large 4.9 inch display making it the biggest iPhone till now. To sum it up, if iPhone 5S and 5C can orchestrate such a mind blowing appearance in the high-end smartphone sector, we are more excited to see what the iPhone 6 has to offer.
Nokia Lumia 1820Continuing upon the success of Nokia Lumia 1020, the manufacturer is now set to produce another beastly device for shutterbugs, the Lumia 1820. While Nokia is operates in tight secrecy when it comes to the features of this smartphone, a more powerful processor, clear full HD display and a Microsoft’s own voice assistant are slated to be debuting with the phone. The phone will obviously run on Windows Phone 8.1 which has a significant effect in the smartphone market. The phone will also feature a Lytro Style camera which will allow focus of a photo to be changed after shooting it.
The year 2014 surely does look bright with these 3 smartphones entering the market. However, we feel that hardware performance will not be the only deciding factor for flagship smartphones. With KitKat, iOS 8 and Windows 8.1, the battle for next gen OS will surely go down to the wire.
