iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung Note 4 Release and Other Smartphone News
On September 9, 2014 Apple released its new line of iPhones, the iPhone 6 and the larger ‘phablet’ style iPhone 6 Plus to HUGE demand. So much so that the demand outstripped Apple’s projections and ability to produce a new line in time, creating a backlog of demand over a month long.
We’ve reported that the previous launch of a new iPhone was 2 million units in 2013 for the iPhone 5s and 5c. At press time, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus had a preorder of over 4 million with demand slowing signs of not showing anytime soon.
Business Insider reported that the supplier for the iPhone had over 200,000 people working on the new phones and could not keep pace.
In other smartphone news, Samsung announced the launch of its new smartphone the Note 4.
Not to be out-done, the new smartphone by Samsung promises the highest-resolution available. Equipped with a 5.7” screen and 16-megapixel (551ppi) camera this is one powerful camera. With a resolution of 2560×1440, the Note 4 is flawless in its video appeal, and a new Note 4 should be a video watcher’s dream.
One problem that may exist is that Samsung is gambling that people want a stylus pen with amazing video resolution. We shall see if the stylus is something that consumers want of if it’s just a tchotchkes trinket to be ignored.
The Samsung Note 4 release date is October 17, 2014 and we’ll reveal all the key aspects shortly.
Not to be forgotten and flying under the radar of all the recent smartphone news, the HTC One M8 phone has taken the sleek HTC One and made it even better.
With a 5.0” display and thin body, the HTC One M8 smartphone fits perfectly in your palm making it easy to use and access. Features include quad-core processor that runs the KitKat Android OS, as well as dual speakers for outstanding sound production. It’s judged as a great new phone. One flaw, however, is the battery life isn’t as great as most of the other new smartphones out there right now. If you can ignore that fact and you want an incredible fast and easy to use smartphone, the HTC One M8 is a great deal.
