2014 has already seen its fair share of quality smartphones, from the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 to the LG G3. But the year is far from over, and Apple fans the world over are chomping at the bit for the iPhone 6. Samsung is expected to take on its biggest rival by launching a new Note phablet (and possibly a metal S5). Meanwhile, Android purists are holding out for Google’s next Nexus. The coming months look pretty exciting, with the biggest names in tech battling it out for smartphone dominance. Here’s what we expect to see for the rest of the year.
Finally, the iPhone will get a display that’s large enough to compete against the big boys. The iPhone 6 is rumored to come in two sizes: a more compact 4.7 inches and a phablet-like 5.5-inch model. Apple is also expected to bump up the phone's display to 1704 x 960 pixels, up from the iPhone 5s' 4-inch 1136 x 640 resolution. Throw in a more powerful quad-core 64-bit A8 processors, a possible Liquidmetal design and an enhanced camera, and Apple could very well have an Android killer this fall.
