Will the HTC M7 vs Samsung Galaxy S4 face-off be determined by screen prowess alone?
Over the next few months, the HTC M7 and Samsung Galaxy S4 release dates are expected to change the face of Smartphone technology once and for all. However, all the power in the world under the hood is beginning to look a little tired and dated to say the least, as consumers flock toward surface beauty and ease of use in an exterior sense.
According to a series of recent reports, both the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC M7 will feature mold-breaking technology designed to allow for one-handed operation, rather than focusing on the same standards of today with more grunt under the hood.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 for example has been heavily rumored for some time to be the first Smartphone release in 2013 to feature flexible screen technology. This would essentially mean that the display panel itself could be extended beyond the usual bezel to cover the sides of the device, allowing the S4 to be operated with one-hand.
In the case of the HTC M7 on the other hand, the unannounced Smartphone is expected to be fitted with on-screen buttons for navigation, not dissimilar to those that made the LG Nexus 4 so hugely popular.
Both are also expected to take things one step further in terms of screen clarity and brilliance – the Samsung Galaxy S4 for one is expected to launch with a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED, while the HTC Droid DNA has already proved what the Taiwanese entrant is capable of.
Samsung is currently riding a wave of success it has no intention of crashing out of, while HTC’s fortunes have been getting steadily worse since the beginning of 2012. As such, we can expect both manufacturers to put up the fights of the respective lives in 2013 and bring to the market the kind of technology we can at present only dream of.
Good luck to Apple with the iPhone 6!
