The new HTC One (aka HTC M8, HTC One 2, HTC One+, HTC Two, and HTC One 2014) will debut on March 25. Is it going to be better than the rumored iPhone 6? There are lots of rumors flying about both devices. Which phone should you buy in 2014? Here’s everything we know so far about these two smartphones.
1. New HTC One vs. iPhone 6: Specs and Features
The Bloomberg video above has some iPhone 6 specs and rumors.
The latest news from CNET UK says that the new HTC One will have the following specs:
“…the new HTC One will have a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip, front- and rear-facing 5-megapixel cameras, NFC, and HTC’s BoomSound speakers. The 5-inch screen will have a resolution of 1,920×1,080 pixels, it’ll run Android KitKat, and come with 32GB memory.”
In contrast, our iPhone 6 rumors post has the follow spec predictions: screen size between 4.7 and 5.7 inches, and screen resolution of at least 1136×640.
Trusted Reviews notes that there is some evidence the iPhone 6 will get an 8MP camera. It will likely run on an Apple A8 processor.
We’ve already talked about sheer megapixels for both these phones in the specs section above. To recap, Apple is rumored to go with an 8MP rear camera on the iPhone 6 (and likely a smaller MP camera on the front), while HTC will opt for 5MP rear and front cameras.
However, megapixels aren’t the only determination of camera quality. Trusted Reviews notes that the iPhone 6 will offer optical image stabilisation.
That being said, HTC’s new phone also has some exciting camera features. PC Advisor writes that HTC’s new One phone will have two camera sensors. They explain:
“It’s unclear exactly how HTC is going to utilise two camera sensors, though. It could possibly mean Lytro-style post photo taking refocusing or maybe improved low-light performance…It has a dual-tone looking LED flash similar to that of the iPhone 5s.”
It sounds like the iPhone 6 is going to have some unique solutions to battery life. The phone has been rumored to have a rapid-charge battery, a larger battery, and possibly even solar cells to capture energy...
