  1. Apple IPhone6

Apple aficionados are always anticipating for the next in line of the Apple legacy. The IPhone 6, successor of the successful IPhone5s, is scheduled to be announced on September 9. Rumor has it that it will come in two sizes, 4.7’ and 5.5”. No need to worry much if you drop it because the screen will be protected by shatterproof sapphire crystal glass, a first on a smartphone. It will also carry a finger print scanner as seen in the IPhone5s. Selfies and images will clearly be captured because of its 8MP camera with dual tone flash; one normal white LED flash and the other is an amber colored LED flash for more accurate color rendition and tone, possibly be like the one in 5s.

  1. Xiaomi MI4

This rising star in the Smartphone market is making waves as GSMArena, the authority in getting to know smartphones, reports that its successor, Xiaomi MI3 sold about 20,000 units in 2.4 seconds, in India. With what this figure shows, it’s a no brainer that Xiaomi MI4 will follow, if not surpass the ranks. Its 5” IPS LCD Screen and 3GB Ram makes it a worthy competitor to the leading Smartphones in the market. Capturing scenes is clearer with its 13MP primary camera and selfies just got more beautiful with its 8MP front camera.  This new challenger has made a name in China and is also getting popular all over the world.
