The iPhone 6 release date is speculated to be in September. The handset is rumoured to be powered by A7 quad core chip. It will include some features such as Near Field Communication, 13MP back camera and longer battery life. And just like its brother, iPad, it may have a large internal storage of up to 128GB.
On the other hand, Finnish mobile manufacturer Nokia recently introduced its new flagship smartphone that aims to battle the giants of the market.
