This Week's Chitter Chatter - iPhone 6S, Samsung Galaxy S6 Active & the Phone Battery that Lasts for 5 Days!
Let's start this week with some iPhone news, and, in particular, some interesting leaks concerning the new iPhone 6S which emerged last week. It appears that we should see the 6S launched in late September (although that's not a big surprise, as September has traditionally been the month that Apple chooses to launch their latest smartphone in the UK.). In terms of looks, rumour has it that the iPhone 6S will sport a similar design to the iPhone 6 with some exciting upgrades which are thought to include a 2K display, a battery boosting low power mode and dual speakers.
Talking of new phones, the eagerly awaited Samsung Galaxy S6 Active (above) has finally been unveiled and it doesn't disappoint. Featuring a 5.1-inch Quad HD display, a massive 3500mAh battery and a powerful Exynos7420 octa-core processor, the S6 Active is sure to impress. Known for their rugged and practical design, the S6 Active can in fact withstand being submerged in 1.5 metres of water for as long as 30 minutes and can absorb the impact if its dropped from up to 4 feet - a useful combination if you have a habit of dropping your phone in the most inappropriate places.
Talking a gadgets for all you active types out there, EE have also announced the launch of their very own 4G Action Camera - a device to rival the GoPro. Video lovers will be excited by the prospect of capturing films in full HD which can be streamed live to smartphones and tablets. As the name suggests, the Action Cam has been designed to be protected from the elements with a waterproof case (up to 60 metres) and a battery which should allow around 3 hours of usage. And it comes with 4GB of expandable on-board memory. Alongside Action Cam, EE will launch a new app to go with the device which will enable the user to access different and camera modes where the films and images can be managed.
And finally, if you hanker for a smartphone with a truly decent battery life then check out the new smartphone from relatively unknown mobile phone maker Doogee. Featuring a huge 6,000mAh battery, which is around twice the power of most of the batteries found inside premium smartphones, the Doogee S6000 mobile phone could still be going 5 days after you've charged it on normal usage. It also has some other impressive stats as its slim at just 9mm deep and its compatible with fast-charging technology which means even its whopping battery can be charged by up to 75% in half an hour!
