iPhone 5: 4-Inch Screen Favors HTC Evo 4G LTE, One X Custom Delays
Delays for HTC’s Evo 4G LTE and One X Smartphones may just be what Apple needs to further prepare the launch of the iPhone 5. According to reports, both HTC Smartphones were held by U.S. Customs due to patent infringements with Apple.
HTC was confident that their products are in compliance. They also assured customers that the company will work to secure approval and get the devices into stores as soon as possible. Below is the company’s official statement on the issue.
“The US availability of the HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE has been delayed due to a standard U.S. Customs review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order. We believe we are in compliance with the ruling and HTC is working closely with Customs to secure approval. The HTC One X and HTC Evo 4G LTE have been received enthusiastically by customers and we appreciate their patience as we work to get these products into their hands as soon as possible,” posted HTC.
Apple may be quite delighted with the delays as rival competitors such as HTC and Samsung gobbling up much of the Smartphone market, ones that the iPhones once held. With swirling speculations regarding the iPhone 5 launch, comparisons with is rival competitors are also building up. This time it is with the android Smartphone HTC One X.
“The problem for Apple is that the HTC One X is already being sold on a carrier that already has the iPhone, while the EVO 4G LTE will be launching on Sprint soon. For every day that someone walks into a Sprint or AT&T store looking for a new Smartphone, the chances of them walking out with a HTC One X or EVO 4G LTE will remain high until Apple announces and comes out with their next gen iPhone,” reports TechAnalyzer.
Rumors have it that the next Apple iPhone will come with a bigger 4-inch display screen than its previous 3.5 inch screen. The HTC One X already come with a 4.7 inch Gorilla Glass Screen display offering richer viewing experiences. Other competing Smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy 3,Motorola Atrix 2, and Sony Xperia Ion are already boasting 4-inch screens.
iPhone 5 is expected to join the bandwagon alongside a 4G LTE connectivity powered by a 1.5 GHz quadcore A6 processor with 1GB RAM and retina display of 1280 x 720 resolutions. It will also include the newest innovation the Near Field Communication (NFC) technology which is already available in One X
Supported with Android 4.0, the HTC One X will be powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core on 1 GB RAM for its global version while a 1.5 GHz dual-core LTE version will be integrated for US versions. For certain selected countries, the storage capacity can run up to 32 GB.
HTC One X comes with continuous shooting mode and simultaneous 1080p HD video and 8 mega pixel camera with auto focus, smart LED flash, and BSI sensor. The Smartphone also comes with the Beats Audio giving authentic listening experiences for music, games, and videos.
When Apple launches its next generation iPhone, it can expect to jump into an already saturated and high competitive pool of other top notch Smartphones. The HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE delays may give the iPhone 5 extra time and competitive edge to prepare for its launch later this year.
