Curiosity about the new iPhone 6 grows as mockups of the new iPhone are being presented to consumers, either locally or via the internet media. Just recently, iPhone 6’s 5.5-inch and 4.7-inch prototypes were compared to the existing Galaxy Note 3. As expected, the mobile war is back in line between Samsung and Apple.

Galaxy Note 3 is a larger Samsung phone compared to its counterparts coming from the same manufacturer. It measures 151 x 79 x 8.3 mm and weighs 145 g.

Though richness is present in the display technology of Note 3, the power consumption of its display remains reduced and regulated. Amoled displays, which are not limited to those in Samsung phones, prevent overlaying the storage of electrical charges. Instead, it integrates the touchscreen layer into the display. This eliminates the need for two-fold charging.
For the forthcoming iPhone 6, one can expect larger displays compared to previous iPhones.

Samsung has long been implementing Android unprecedented features for smartphones. Until now, Galaxy Note 3 is enjoying Androidification, which includes the multitasking features along with custom UI known as TouchWiz. Samsung Note 3 runs Android 4.3 OS/ Jelly Bean. Though many have complained about TouchWiz’s completely unnecessary features, it somehow suits Note 3. The extra features of TouchWiz are fairly functional with Note 3’s larger screen. Besides, the software provides a more colorful and brighter interface for Note 3. Note 3 has its multitasking feature represented by its Multi View, which will allow you to read emails, chat, and browse pages all at once.

Rumors also assessed that 13-megapixel sensor is possible for the new iPhone. If not, another gossip projected iPhone camera having 10-megapixel camera, improved filter, and f/2.0 aperture. As smartphone reviewers have always said, it is not all about the megapixel range for a handset to provide excellent camera features. Sometimes, it is about the software that amends the overall image quality. Lytro technology is suggested to be implemented by Apple in the impending iPhone 6. The technology allows a 3D sensor-like feature for the new handset, which will permit focal point specification even after taking the shot. Tweaking the image can be done right after capturing the best moments you don’t want to miss.

Now that Touch ID will have its reappearance in the new iPhone, fingerprint sensing application is projected available in the new phone. Banking and quick-pay applications may possibly be supported by iPhone once the new flagship is released. Rumors suggested that Apple rather adopted near-field communication connectivity (NFC) feature. In contrary to this, iWallet feature may be the stand-in for the NFC expectation, which is compatible with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections.
