This is what apps could look like on the iPhone 6′s bigger display

While Apple is yet to reveal details about its bigger iPhone plans, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo – who has a good track record reporting on Apple unreleased products – last week revealed many details about a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 including its screen resolution. According to him, the bigger iPhone will have a strange 1334 x 750 Retina display with a pixel density of 326 pixel per inch density. In new reports, MacRumors and a The Verge forums user explained why that resolution makes sense, showing how the home screen and apps could look like on such a display. More →

New iPhone 6 case photos reaffirm big redesign, show relocated power button

New iPhone 6 case photos reaffirm big redesign, show relocated power button

Apple appears to take the most aggressive stance when it comes to secrecy and keeping information surrounding its unreleased products out of the public’s eye. Needless to say, it’s all for naught when your production partners are gigantic Eastern manufacturing giants with tens or even hundreds of thousands of workers. As such, Apple products tend to leak even more than devices made by rival companies, especially since the interest level in Apple products is always so high. And now, the leaks involving Apple’s iPhone 6 have kicked into high gear. More →

Apple did not announce the iPhone 6 yet, but numerous leaks have already shown alleged components and manufacturing molds of the handset. Furthermore, case makers are already working on cases for the upcoming flagship model, with many such companies having presented accessories for the device at this year’s Hong Kong Electronics Fair.

Leaked photo shows iPhone 6 front panel side-by-side with iPhone 5

Apple cannot be happy with the multitude of iPhone 6 leaks we’ve seen over just the past week. Via 9to5Mac, Czech website LetemSvetemApplem.eu has snagged a new picture from Chinese social networking site Weibo that purportedly shows the front panel of the iPhone 6 side-by-side with the iPhone 5. Interestingly, the display portion of the iPhone 6 front panel is only a little bit smaller than the entire iPhone 5, which suggests that we’re looking at the 4.7-inch version of the yet-to-be-released device.

New iPhone 6 part leak points to big internal overhaul

Now, a new leak that reveals a key internal iPhone 6 part could suggest once again that Apple’s new smartphone for 2014 is in store for much more than just a facelift. More →

iPhone 6 Photos Leak

Leaked photo might show us exactly how big the iPhone 6 will be

Leaked photo might show us exactly how big the iPhone 6 will be

It looks like Apple suppliers are really gearing up to mass produce the iPhone 6 because Nowhereelse.fr has snagged some leaked pictures showing the aluminum mold that manufacturers are using for building the iPhone 6′s casing. Nowhereelse.fr then went an extra step and superimposed an image of the iPhone 5s into the picture as a point of comparison for the new device. Assuming that the new iPhone’s display will have a 4.7-inch diagonal, then Nowherelse.fr estimates based on the leaked mold that the iPhone 6′s full dimensions will be 66 millimeters wide by 138 millimeters long. For comparison, the iPhone 5s has basic dimensions of 58.6 millimeters wide by 123.8 millimeters long, so it looks like the new device won’t fit as snuggly in your pocket as earlier models. More →

Apple Vs Samsung

2014: The year Samsung copied Apple and Apple copied Samsung

2014: The year Samsung copied Apple and Apple copied Samsung

By on April 11, 2014 at 10:00 AM.

An interesting plot twist is playing out in the smartphone industry this year. In a scramble to identify new catalysts as smartphone sales growth continues to slow, Apple and Samsung will both seemingly make huge strategic shifts that aim to broaden the appeal of their high-end handsets.

Apple, rumor has it, will launch two new smartphones in 2014 that both have larger displays. Numerous reports suggest that the company is planning an iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch screen, as well as an iPhone phablet with an even larger 5.5-inch display.

Samsung, rumor has it, will launch a new premium smartphone that features a high-end metal housing and possibly other premium materials. The device was supposedly pictured for the first time earlier this week, though a shroud blocked its case from view.

In other words, Apple will cave and finally launch a big-screen phone, like Samsung… and Samsung will cave and finally launch a metal phone, like Apple. More →
