While Samsung and Sony unveiled new products at the IFA Berlin trade show, Apple came out with its new iPhones. And Blackberry is catching up with its Passport. Many smartphones announced globally will be launched in India in October. We take a look.
Apple iPhone 6
From a bigger display (4.7 inches) to a faster processor (A8 chipset with second-generation 64 bit architecture and M8 co-processor) to the new iSight 8MP camera with a new focus sensor - you name it and the iPhone 6 has it. With slim bezel and curved edges, it doesn't look like previous generation iPhones either. If you missed upgrading to the iPhone 5S last year, this one is worth considering.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus
This smartphone looks nothing like any other iPhone or Android device. Reachability and the power key on the side for one-hand operation despite the big 5.5-inch display dares to threaten the Samsung Galaxy Note's market. It gets the best of all worlds - an A8 chipset, iSight camera with optical stabilisation and a battery backup with talk time of 24 hours on 3G network.
