One of the most awaited smartphones of the year, Apple’s iPhone 5, is likely to be released on August 7, 2012. Although this news cannot be confirmed right now, it does bring about anticipation and a lot of excitement among gadget enthusiasts. The rumored features, which are being widely speculated on the Web, are that the mobile phone will have a 4-inch screen, 3D maps, updated Siri, 4G LTE, NFC (near field communication), 3D camera, smaller dock connector, etc.
The question that arises now is why the iPhone 5 launch, which was initially stated to be released in October, has been forwarded to August? Is it being done to keep up with the rumored 31 August, 2012 release of Samsung Galaxy Note 2?
It’s not just the release date, there are other rumored features on both the phones, which could offer tough competition to each other. They are as follows:
- While Apple’s iPhone 5 is rumored to come with the iOS 6 operating system, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is reportedly going to operate on Android Jelly Bean.
- The screen size of both the phones will also be around 4-inches and is being stated to be ”super-sleek”.
- Both the mobile phones will apparently integrate the quad core processor
- It does not come as a surprise that both Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2, in terms of connectivity, will probably have NFC, 4G, etc.
- In terms of camera resolution, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is rumored to have a 13 mega-pixel camera, while Apple iPhone 5 is apparently planning on a 10 mega-pixel camera
It cannot be said if the above mentioned rumors are true or not. However, the rumors and speculations can only be put to rest with the actual launch of the smartphones.
