Apple has launched various devices in the year 2013 and it has been a good year for the company in terms of sales and leading name in the mobile market as well.
With the rising rumors about upcoming model Apple iPhone 6, we decided to create this post to filter out all the rubbish and give you a clear picture about possible specs and facts about the phone.
Everyone is looking forward to the screen size of the Apple iPhone 6. There are more expectations to get a better and bigger screen than anything else from Apple because as the other companies were working to improve the screen sizes last year, Apple iPhone 5S still had its standard 4 inch screen size. HTC, Samsung and Sony are leaders when it comes to best quality big screen phones. Rumors are getting stronger than the new Apple iPhone 6 will have a display size of 4.8 inches or even more than 5 inches. The tech resources are suggesting that 5 inch screen size with full HD resolution of 1920*1080 is the next fate of iPhone 6.
However, we think that Apple will not work like this. The company cares how the apps are going to look on the screen and therefore, the resolution will get 4 times better and a five inches screen will get 2272*1280 resolution.
Apple iPhone 6 will have two screen size options – Really?
Information has been leaked from Foxconn executives that Apple will launch a phone and a phablet with screen sizes of 4.7 inches and 5.7 respectively. We find it hard to believe to this rumor as Apple always launches one phone at a time rather it focuses on one phone in a year. It is possible that Apple iPhone 6S may get bigger screen as an update to the coming iPhone.
Some companies have reported that apple may launch the iPhone 6 in May 2014. However, Apple always keeps its device launch events in the month of September. So, we expect the launch of iPhone 5S in Sept 2014.
Tougher Build material
The Apple phones are very delicate and they fail most of the drop tests around the world. Many people carry the Apple phones with cracked screens. Therefore, Apple has decided to toughen the build quality of their phones. They have signed a deal with GT technologies to build the sapphire glass screen for the iPhone 6 and the company will use liquid metals for the rest of the phones making iPhone 6 really tough phone.
Camera in iPhone 6
The new phone is going to get a better camera of course and we expect that Apple will put a 12 or 13 MP camera on their new phone. There are rumors that Apple will use new patent and add a refocus-able light field camera to their device this time.
System on the chip
Apple will surely use their first 64 bit A7 chipset and A7 processor which is far best technology until now in a mobile phone ever. Every one along with us waits for the Apple’s iPhone 6. Keep reading this blog for news updates about Apple upcoming device.

The Xperia E3 retains Sony’s standard design ethos, rocking a distinctive sharp-angled body with the iconic rounded power button.the Xperia E3 sports a rubbery rear that feels nice in the palm. As a positive, the soft-touch backing makes the E3 easier to grip.Sadly the Xperia E3 starts to show its budget side with the 4.5-inch screen, which seems to be far too small for its body. Those wide bezels are all the more obvious when you pose the Xperia E3 next to the also-new Lumia 535, which has almost the same dimensions yet sports a larger 5-inch display that makes the most of the room available.The Xperia E3 cuts back on features in order to keep the price down, but the big inclusion is 4G LTE support.

Motorola has launched a new variant of its Moto X smartphone with the 64 GB 2014 Moto X Pure Edition. It is worth mentioning that Motorola Moto X (Gen 2) is only available in 16GB and 32GB variants worldwide and the 64GB inbuilt storage stays Moto X Pure Edition exclusive for now.

The Moto X (Gen 2) features a 5.2-inch (1080×1920 pixel) OLED display with a pixel density of 423ppi, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The handset is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974-AC) processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is one of the late-2014 flagships for the company, announced alongside the Galaxy Note 4 via simultaneous events in New York, Berlin and Beijing in September 2014. It shares many of the same design elements, as well as all of its internal specs, with the Note 4. It’s distinguished by the fact that it’s made out of plastic, rather than metal, and has a very unique flexible AMOLED display that curves sharply off of the right edge of the device.
That curved portion houses a small bar — called the “Edge Screen” — that’s populated with secondary information that helps you multitask. By default it takes the place of the standard dock at the bottom of the launcher, instead giving you access to several different apps in the order of your choosing. Swiping on the Edge Screen reveals different panels that give you glaceable information like news or tweets, as well as access to different tool-type apps that are completely contained within the Edge Screen.

The rear is a soft-touch plastic and is curved just right to mask this phone’s thickness. The speaker is surprisingly loud and clear, and even call quality is superb.
