The company from Cupertino is again the leader of the U.S. smartphone market, CIRP reports. Back in Q3 2013, Samsung was a leader with 38% share and Apple was falling behind with 34%. As we can see now, thanks to the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5C releases, the guys from Cupertino managed to regain leadership. Take a look at the picture below.
Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has recently published a report claiming that Samsung will embed a fingerprint sensor and a 32-bit processor into its Galaxy S5. The analyst thinks that the South Korean company needs a some kind of biometric verification system in order to keep up with Apple’s iPhone 5s and iPhone 6. And he’s right.
It is Sunday today and I think that you know what that means, huh? It’s time for our traditional top 10 stories of the week. A number of interesting things happened during the past seven days, I must say. But everything in its turn.
According to the study that was recently conducted by a research firm JDSU, iPhone 5s users seem to be the ‘hungriest’ data consumers if compared to owners of nearly 150 other devices in both developed and developing markets across the world. This is a huge improvement, especially if to compare the amount of data downloaded by iPhone 5, 5s and 5c owners to the results of iPhone 3G several years ago.
According to the latest rumors, Samsung is planning to include a fingerprint scanner in its Galaxy S5. Looks like the South Korean company has decided to copy each handset produced by Apple, don’t you think so?
Looks like it’s Sunday again and that means I have to make a short review of the most interesting events of these days for people who don’t have enough time to read each post we publish during the week.
Apple will Launch it’s widely-rumored tablet with an enormous 12.9-inch display no sooner than in the third quarter of 2014, reports
According to a research firm NDP, more than 40% of all smartphone users in the USA own an iPhone. This is a significant improvement from Q4 2012 figure, which was 35%. Samsung’s Android devices become more and more popular, so the South Korean manufacturer comes on its usual second place. As to the other companies, namely, Motorola, LG, HTC and Blackberry, their share on the market continues to drop.
Following Apple’s example, its South Korean rival decided to split the Samsung Galaxy S5 lineup into two models - metal and plastic. These models, of course, will get different price tags: the smartphone with metal housing is expected to be sold for €800 ($1,093), while the model with all-plastic body - for €650 ($889).
According to the latest report from The China Post, Apple’s iPhone 6 will be equipped with an 8 megapixel camera very similar to the one used now in iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. But don’t get upset or disappointed - it will feature an intuitive image stabilization system.
It’s Sunday now, the week nearly came to an end, so I guess it’s time to take a brief look at the most popular stories of the past seven days.
There were many events, but I don’t think it would be very smart of me to retell all of them in this short post. Instead of doing this, I’ve picked 10 most popular stories in case you haven’t yet read them and put these bits together for you to take a look. Enjoy!
