iPhone 6 To Have 1GB RAM, 2915mAh Battery!

gsmarena_001 (2)The latest iPhone 6 that comes out of China states that it may have just 1GB of RAM. These rumors come from where the iPhone 6 is apparently being mass manufactured.

To give you’ll a perspective the iPhone 5s and 5c both have 1GB of RAM as well and they work pretty much flawlessly. We also have news about the battery of the iPhone 6 that is pictured about giving us a number that reads 2915mAh – this will be the capacity of the battery powering the bigger of the two iPhones while the smaller 4.7 inch version will be powered by a 1810mAh one which if true will be disappointing.

September 9 is coming soon and we will find out then!

gsmarena_001 (1)Verizon, also dubbed as the Big Red has added a new plan to it’s existing lineup. This new plan is of a single line type – that means u wont be able to share it’s data.

The $60 plan comes with 2GB of Data and Unlimited talk and text. Each additional GB would cost $15 over the 2GB limit. The plan would normally cost $60 but if you get a phone via Verizon’s edge installment plan then you get it for $50. It’s not everyday that you come across a plan from Verizon that is cheaper than the competition – $5 than AT&T’s offering.

If your communication needs fit in line with this plan, you should definitely take advantage of this.

New iPhone 6 Front Panel Shows Near Final Hardware!

gsmarena_001 (3)With more and more pieces of final hardware leaking online, we have a fair idea of how the iPhone 6 will look like. These new photos suggest that even though the size of the display would bump upto 4.7 inches, the phone would be perfectly usable with one hand.

These photos seem to be the real deal with markings like 6G. The iPhone  is expected to launch on September 9 with a better processor. The display on the iPhone 6 is expected to be protected by Sapphire which is very expensive to source . There were news stating that Apple had difficulty in sourcing the required amount of Sapphire for mass production but such issues seem to have been sorted now.

Stay with us for the latest updates on the iPhone 6.

Galaxy Note 4 To Have 4GB RAM, QuadHD Screen?!

att-note-3-review-3We will be seeing the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 officially before a months time but that doesnt stop retailers from posting tips about what the phone could actually bring.

Indonesian retailer Erafone has an early product page up for the Note 4, and offers a pretty comprehensive set of phone specifications. Those include things like a 5.7-inch quad HD display, 16MP main camera with optical stabilization, and a never-before-seen-in-a-phone 4GB of RAM. 

While 4GB of RAM may seem too much, with the way TouchWiz behaves, one may barely notice. Let’s see if this translates to reality.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha Is Official, Apple – Your Move!

gsmarena_001 (1)Post disappointing sales in early 2014, Samsung had to change their product design and strategy as well. Today we have the much rumored Galaxy Alpha.

It certainly has many of the Galaxy S5 key selling features, while staking on more premium material such as aluminum. But it’s not another flagship, its a weird combination of what the S5 mini could be, maybe Samsung too is confused at this point but they needed this phone. The sides of the Galaxy Alpha are machined out of aluminum, while the back is made of metal.

It definitely looks much better and handsome now. But it isn’t much aggressive on specifications. It’s just got a 720p screen and the processor is an Exynos Octa- just like on the Galaxy S4. Rest of the specifications are more or less similar and they have even kept the fingerprint scanner intact. Such features make it Samsung’s representative of what the company wants to offer against something like the upcoming iPhone 6.

Galaxy Note 4 Leaks A Month Ahead Of Release!

note-4-gsm-1The Note series is Samsung’s bearer of technological innovations crunched into a phablet form factor. How will the Note 4 look like? Seems that folks from GSMArena managed to get something for the internet.

With its Unpacked event coming up at IFA 2014, the Note 4′s launch may only be weeks away, and despite all this talk of quad HD displays, next-gen SoCs, and maybe even some sort of curved display, the Note 4 is no short of surprises. The leaked device is bigger than the Note 3 and much square in shape – with design cues taken from the Galaxy Alpha that leaked recently.

The phone looks legit otherwise, the home button, stylus all look like they could be the real deal. But with renders and clones becoming the thing, one can never say!
