This Week's Chitter Chatter - iPhone 6 rumours, LG G3 specs & Samsung Galaxy S5 Baby Monitor
Not a week goes by without a LOT of speculation, rumours and gossip surrounding the much anticipated iPhone 6. One feature of the new Apple smartphone which has gained a lot of press in recent weeks is the iPhone 6's screen. It's looking very likely that Apple's new flagship phone will be sporting an ultra-tough sapphire screen. There have been stories concerning Apple's plant in Arizona which will apparently be making the screens and is set to be extended ready for its big opening in June. Its been claimed that the new plant could produce in excess of 100 million sapphire screen for the iPhone and Apple has also filed a patent for a special screen coating for the sapphire screens specifically.
Also subject to daily rumours are the likely dimensions of the iPhone 6. Reports range from speculation that the screen size is 4.7-inches wide to the possibility that a couple of iPhones will be released, the other of which will have a 5.5-inch display. Could there be 2 iPhone 6s on the way?
Talking of new phones, there are reports this week that LG could be launching their new G3 flagship smartphone as early as May. There's speculation that the G3 could come with a 2k resolution (2560 x 1440), 5.5-inch display and a whopping octa-core processor. The impressive specs are set to continue as the G3 is also expected to feature a 16-megapixel camera. We'll bring you all the news on the LG G3 as we get it.
And still on the subject of the latest smartphones, if you have a little one then the latest innovation from Samsung could be useful. Their new Galaxy S5 smartphone comes with a Baby Monitor feature or 'Baby Crying Detector' as it's been called. You do however also need a Samsung Gear smartwatch to pick up the notifications. Just pop your S5 close to your sleeping child (presumably on mute) and if your child wakes up and starts crying, an alert is sent via your phone to your Gear wearable to warn you.
