If you have been up to date with recent speculation related to the smartphone industry, then you might have heard that Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corporation are gearing up to incorporate significant upgrades in their upcoming flagship smartphones. The rumored Apple iPhone 8 and the Microsoft Surface Phone are tipped to represent two of the most powerful smartphones ever released in the market, but it is largely unknown which one has an advantage over the other.
This year marks a full decade since the late Steve Jobs forever changed the tech world with the launch of the original iPhone. It is widely reported that the Cupertino-based company is set to incorporate numerous impressive upgrades in its next flagship smartphone in order to celebrate the tenth birthday of its original iPhone.
According to recent rumors, the next iPhone model will arrive in three variants. Although the entry-level and mid-range variants are expected to look very similar to their predecessors, the high-end variant of the 2017 iPhone model is expected to look unlike anything ever seen in the market.
There are strong rumors that Apple will incorporate an all-glass look on its next flagship smartphone, aka iPhone 8. Also, the smartphone is expected to sport an OLED display which will represent a positive step-up compared to an IPS LCD in the current iPhone. Furthermore, recent developments have all but confirmed that the upcoming iPhone model would offer wireless charging capabilities.
Microsoft, on the other hand, is tipped to make up for lost time which has been contributed due to its previous failed venture in the smartphone market. Anyone remember the Redmond company’s mediocre fleet of Windows Phones? Well, we wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t, because that’s exactly how Microsoft would want it to be. However, the company is highly-tipped to incorporate a host of significant upgrades in its upcoming smartphone which could end up striking fear into the heart of rival companies.
Recent updates have confirmed that Microsoft has assigned its Surface engineers to look over the next flagship smartphone. Hence, users can easily expect the device to incorporate a solid build quality, along with top-notch specifications. Also, there is ongoing speculation that the Surface Phone will arrive in two variants, an entry-level version with a 5.1-inch display and a high-end version with a 5.5-inch display.
Both variants of the device are expected to sport at least a QHD resolution display. Also, it’s likely that the latest smartphone will be powered by a QUALCOMM Snapdragon 835 processing chipset which will provide it with both super-fast processing and efficient power consumption capabilities.
Furthermore, the rumor mills are confident that Microsoft will incorporate its next-generation Windows 10 Redstone operating system in the upcoming Surface Phone, so don’t expect the software giant to repeat the mistakes which it made with its Windows Phone lineup. Source: smartstocknews
