VZbuzz has the iPhone community talking today about a rumored iPhone 4 sale price. The blog apparently caught wind of a potential upcoming sale on some of the most sought after Verizon phones in all the land.
The iPhone 4 16GB is reported to be on sale for $150.99 with a two-year contract. That’s about the same price as a refurbished iPhone 4 usually goes for at Verizon.
The two smartphones that everybody seems to be talking about are the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Apple iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S2 (rumored to see a US release shortly) should hopefully get here before the iPhone 5 (rumored release October) so will have a headstart. Although we already know specs for the Galaxy S2 there are no confirmed specs so far for the iPhone 5 although we all think we know roughly what to expect. What we’re asking today is what are the must-haves that the iPhone 5 needs in order to threaten its Galaxy S2 rival?
Before we take a look at some ideas you may be interested in our article from yesterday where we told how the absence of the US Galaxy S2 and the iPhone 5 would benefit HTC and also Motorola so hit the link if you’d like to see more on that. Although at one time it was thought the main competition for the iPhone 5 was the Galaxy S2 there is a plethora of new and upcoming smartphones that are highly impressive on the way, which could also rival the Galaxy S2. Just some of them include the Motorola Droid Bionic, the HTC EVO 3D, Motorola Droid 3 and we recently detailed leaks of a new handset not due until the fall, the HTC Eternity, which will be a Windows Phone 7 Mango handset. We even told earlier today about a rumor regarding a Galaxy S2 Windows Phone 7 edition instead of Android so there may be yet be more competition although as yet this is still unconfirmed.
As Samsung Galaxy S2 is gaining credibility and good reviews in other parts of the world, the US market is still waiting for its arrival.
The Galaxy S2 smartphone is expected to arrive on Verizon network as the “Function” phone in July, and Sprint may have it in September. Even AT&T will have its hands a version called “Attain.” There was no confirmation on any version going to T-Mobile, but a new rumored smartphone, known as the Samsung Hercules, has emerged out of the blue and is expected to be T-Mobile’s flagship phone.
Samsung’s Hercules handset,with a rumored $350 price tag, can tick all the boxes on the super phone list, making a big impact in the crowded smartphone market.
