The iPhone 6 release date has been debated for some time now. However, we certainly know that it will make its official debut at some point in 2014; some even speculate that it will be available as soon as June. Now, though, there are new rumors that seem to indicate that the iPhone 6 may be outclassed in its new specs by another, rival smartphone, the Galaxy S5.
Rumors about the iPhone 6 have flown across the internet. For example, it's likely that the new phone will feature the next-generation A8 mobile processor, according to DigiTimes. There have also been rumors that the iPhone 6 will have a new sapphire display, according to Apple Daily. Apple already has at least one patent on sapphire glass use in smartphones, and even confirmed that its Arizona plant will produce it. It's also likely that the iPhone 6 will have two screen sizes--a 4.7 or 4.8-inch and a 5.5-inch, according to IBTimes.
Now, though, there's word that the Galaxy S5 may take the lead when it comes to the smartphone race. The new smartphone will supposedly be powered by either a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon chipset or an octa-core 64-bit Exynos SoC at 2GHz, according to BGR.com. In addition, the phone will sport a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 3.2-megapixel front-facing camera. It will also be the first phone from Samsung to feature an all-metal case.
It's currently speculated that Samsung's GalaxyS5 will officially debut in the first or second quarter of this year. And there are rumors that more information will be unveiled about the phone at the "Samsung Unpacked" event at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona on Feb. 24.
So which phone comes on top? It looks like from the rumors so far, the Galaxy S5 may win. Yet nothing can be confirmed until the smartphones are actually released to the market. Until then, rumors will have to suffice.
