New Delhi: Apple has finally introduced to the world its much rumored iPhone 5S, coming with a great new spec and features over the company’s preceding smartphone, the iPhone 5.
The new iPhone 5S now comes in a new gold colour, and has some serious improvements on the inside. The most significant one is the fingerprint scanner, which is located on the home button. You use the scanner - called Touch ID - to unlock your phone and make purchases from iTunes. Apple also said the new iPhone is twice as fast as the iPhone 5, with its new A7 processing chip. It also has a boosted camera, with a duel-LED flash, auto-focus, slow-mo and burst modes to make taking photos on your iPhone even easier.
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 features a new design over its predocessor boasting a soft-touch back. With dimensions of 151.2x79.2x8.3mm the Note 3 is actually slimmer and thinner than the Galaxy Note 2 despite boasting a larger 5.7-inch display. It is also 12 grams lighter than its predecessor. The Galaxy Note 3 has been given a serious hardware boost with the 3G model featuring the much-reported 1.9GHz octa-core processor whilst the 4G/LTE version will come sporting a 2.3GHz Qualcomm quad-core processor.
