Top Smart Phones For 2013
With new technology always on the way, and updated operating systems and features constantly the focus of major mobile companies, it seems that we are seeing new mobile phones just about every month these days. Indeed, despite the fact that two companies – Apple and Samsung – seem to entirely dominate the market, smart phones are actually available from a number of different companies and providers, and new versions with exciting features are constantly coming out. So, before you set your mind on your next phone, or browse http://www.mysmartbuy.com/ for accessories for your current phone, here is a look at a few of the most exciting smart phones rumoured for release on 2013.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Following the considerable recent success of the Galaxy Note 2, the concept of the “phablet” (a phone/tablet) has become increasingly popular among consumers. Therefore it is perhaps no surprise that Samsung will be offering a quick follow-up to the Galaxy Note 2, with the Galaxy Note 3 rumoured for release later in 2013. Details have been kept fairly quiet, but the hottest rumours are that the screen will be even larger (6.3 inches, as opposed to the 5.5 of the Galaxy Note 2), and that Samsung’s new processor, the Exynos 5 Octa, will be included. This new processor was unveiled at CES 2013, and is expected to be extremely efficient. There’s plenty of time yet to wait for this device, a fall/autumn release date is likely.
Samsung Galaxy S4
In 2012, the Samsung Galaxy SIII emerged as the chief competitor to the iPhone 4, generating comparably positive reviews and enthusiasm. The S4 is rumoured for 2013, and will doubtless be a strong and innovative upgrade built to compete with the iPhone 5. So far, the specific details expected of the phone are relatively basic improvements: a larger screen (5 inches expected) with a Full HD,1080p resolution, an improved camera, increased battery life, and a new Android operating system, Android 4.3/5.0. There is also, however, an interesting rumour that the Galaxy S4 could include gesture-based technology, allowing users to control certain functions on the screen by mere finger gestures, without actually touching the surface.
Apple iPhone 5S
It is widely acknowledged that Apple’s “s-series” of phones are essentially half upgrades. Moving from the iPhone 4 to 5 was a significant step, but just as the 4S marked a sort of step between the two, the 5S is expected to offer some fun changes, but nothing revolutionary. Some of those changes are expected to be improved display quality, a sharper camera, and perhaps most fun of all, increased colour options. Some rumours suggest that the iPhone 5S will come in the full range of colours available for iPod Nanos, which would give consumers more choices than ever before for their iPhones. A summer release is possible for this phone. Of course a brand new iPhone 6 is not completely off the table, after competitors are starting to overtake Apple in terms of market-share and sales.
