While there is not too many certainties in this regard, it is expected that the mysterious X Phone , which has been appearing for some time, is the first product with direct influence since acquiring Motorola Google Movility in May 2012.
As for its specifications still nothing too light. There is talk of a full HD 4.7-to 5-inch, quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, up to 128 GB of internal memory, Kevlar coated housing, high-capacity battery and Android 4.2 or Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie as system although operating at the moment are just rumors.
However, Larry Page, CEO of Google, gave some interesting tracks in a quarterly earnings conference a few weeks ago. “In today’s world of multiple screens, the possibilities are endless. The battery life is a big problem … when a phone falls should not “splat”. There is real potential to invent new and better experiences. “I still do not know much about this X Phone. It is speculated to be a new Nexus device to clarify these issues but we have to wait until May, when starting the Google I / O.
The next iPhone (iPhone? 5S?)
The iPhone 5 has not been the most radical update that Apple could have offered and was beaten by the Samsung Galaxy S3 in most markets. However, the Cupertino firm would have some tricks up his sleeve.
In the last couple of years, users have opted for the larger screens. For the first time in its history, Apple increased the size of the screen of your iPhone from the 3.5 to 4 inches, and it is believed that the next iPhone will have a panel of 4.8 and also see a low-cost iPhone, for inroads into emerging markets more price sensitive.
With Android manufacturers like Samsung, HTC and Sony to come stomping, it would be naive to think that a company like Cupertino will remain with folded arms while their devices remain overshadowed by competition. The company has mountains of cash and some of the best designers in the world among its ranks so surely be preparing some surprises for the coming years.
far we did a short tour of the main devices launched major manufacturers, but we must not forget players like Huawei and ZTE may also surprise us with some interesting smartphones this year.
How about these devices ? What is your favorite? Will HTC, Sony and other companies compete against every inch Samsung and Apple?
