Korean securities firm KDB Daewoo Securities Research, has passed along rumored specs for the Apple iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy S5 to its customers on Monday. The report says that the Apple iPhone 6 will be available in two sizes, one with a 4.7 inch to 4.8 inch screen, and the other with a 5.5 inch glass. The resolution on the displays will be 1080 x 1920 and 1280 x 2272 respectively...

I didn't have to finish the article to know this is fake.

First, Apple will definitely launch an iPhone with a standard resolution (1920x1080p). Instead, they'll opt for an awkward resolution no one ever uses.

Two, Apple wills not release an iPhone in Q2. They'll never drive away from the last week of September release date.

Three, neither Samsung or Apple will release their flagships with 128GB of storage since they'll want to push people into using their own cloud storage.

That's just my two cents.

liar-liar, pants on fire.
Those phones hold up to 64GBs. I don't know about Galaxy A3, though.

Well... the supposedly S5 doesn't seem to be far fetched... the iPhone part seems to align with rumours, but it does seem sketchy about the battery and dates.....

I didn't get what you said about the resolution... do you think Apple will launch with standard res or opt for awkward one? typo?

But I think that the storage part might be true because that does not stop people from using Cloud services... Cloud is also a mean to keep your files sync, backed up and handy for other devices....

At least thats the use I see the most...

I thought they recently released a standard-definition 4K monitor which made me think that they might start using standard definition more frequently than these ridiculous resolutions that they produce purely to save money. It would make so much more sense to stick with 1080p because Android developers already have apps in 1080p and they could re-use most of it for iOS. We'll see.

Thanks for the good laugh.

I think they will finally drop the ridiculous resolutions primarily because they made the transition from 4:3 on phones to 16:9 with the iPhone 5. If they make a 4:3 phone again, it will be WAY to fat and once again increase their fragmentation (they still need that card).

Q2 might actually happen if they plan on competing with the primary phone makers directly instead of 6 months after. Up until now they had the disadvantage of being called 6 months late with less tech in almost all regards. Now at least they will release at the same time with slightly less tech. The iPads were moved to September to make up for that as well (revenue spread). It also has the added benefit of stealing customers from Samsung or HTC because contract upgrades for those companies happen at that time while most iOS users are set for October for the next year or two (very underhanded and classic Apple). They are pulling all the stops this time to steal as much thunder as possible whether by hook or crook. They probably will succeed to a certain degree but will eventually live to regret losing the customers who switch to LG and Sony because their tech comes out at year end.

There's nothing really awkward about their resolutions. They stand out in a list like this because they aren't "standard" but they create zero problems for developers and users, so there's nothing awkward about it.

Definitely not hating. It was a simple statement that holds true. No other OEM uses 1136x640p on their displays.

1136x640 is awkward... Don't see why they couldn't use the standard 1280x720 to achieve a higher pixel count instead of 326?

62. Finalflash (Posts: 3216; Member since: 23 Jul 2013)


They did that to make it easier for developers because fewer pixel densities mean easier fine upgrading apps.

So is Apple finally dropping the Home button for a different kind? smaller, or maybe on-screen with fingerscanner underrneath? they already have the patent for that

posted on 03 Feb 2014, 15:09

29. PBXtech (Posts: 1032; Member since: 21 Oct 2013)


Good point, especially after making such a huge deal about the fingerprint scanner being built into the home button.

Personally, I'd love to see the home button go away, but doubt Apple will make that change, it's single handedly the most noticeable feature the iPhone has.

A 4.7" phone with the same home button and the same symmetric bezel on top would leave a huge foot print. Kind of like a Xperia Z1 but with a smaller screen!...

They need to change the design, and it is the generation that is meant to change

If they really impress with the Iwatch, which I have no doubt they will, I will have to switch to Apple again. An awesome Iphone 6 with what would finally be an awesome smartwatch? sign me up. (I have a Pebble and love it. I am not biased. Screw you morons who only root for one company. Cant you just enjoy the advancements of technology?)

The S5 doesn't seem too far off aside from the concept image used.

The iPhone 6 I find very difficult to believe though, Apple isn't a company that would release a flagship device in June 9 months after the previous flagship, it just isn't likely. The 1800 mAH battery is hard to believe as well, the battery will definitely be smaller than the S5's battery, but 1800 mAH doesn't seem like enough, even with IGZO and Apple's battery optimizations I would think 2100 mAH at the least with that size and resolution display.

The S5 sounds like a BEAST!!! If they make it out of a better material other than that crappy plastic they always use, I may consider picking ine up.

Disappointed on the S5. I was hoping it will have 4GB of RAM.
