iPhone 5 next generation of Smartphones
This version of iPhone will be much faster and powerful than its predecessor IPhone 4Gs. iPhone 5 is said to be powered by a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU with NEON SIMD accelerator and a dual core PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU, which means that the iPhone5 can do twice the work at once. iPhone 5 may also have 4G/LTE network support. It will have a larger screen of 3.7 inches and a much better 8 MP camera, may be even a 3D camera as Apple has filed several patent applications relating to 3D picture capturing to the US Patent and Trademark Office. The storage capacity of this smart phone is said to be about 64 GB or even may be 128 GB. It will run on iOS5 and may have solar panel in order to recharge its battery using sunlight.
Some people are saying iPhone5 will be fire proof and if this is true than it may began another era for smart-phones after Jobs. NFC or Nano field communication and Nano-SIM is also expected in it.
Samsung Galaxy S III the battle with iPhone continues
The real competitor for iPhone4 was Samsung Galaxy II. With Galaxy III we can expect the same for iPhone5. With Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen 4.6 inches screen with 16M colors 720 x 1280 pixels @ ~319 ppi pixel density and protected with Corning Gorilla Glass it easily overtakes iPhone5′s 3.7″ screen. The memory is also impressive with 16GB/32GB internal storage, 2 GB RAM and external microSD memory up to 32GB.
Galaxy III will have two cameras. Main rear camera will be a 12 Mega Pixels camera with 4000×3000 pixels picture resolution, autofocus and LED flash. In the front there will be a 2MP camera for video calling. The rear camera can record HD videos of 1080p at 30fps. The phone will be powered by Dual-core 1.8 GHz processor and will support 4G Network LTE 700. It may also have NFC just like iPhone 5

With 1.4 GHz Scorpion CPU & 3D Graphics HW Accelerator you can expect rich media/game experience on this device. Nokia Lumia 900 will have internal 16 GB storage memory with 512 Ram. This is poor I must say. A 8MP camera with 3264×2448 pixels picture resolution, Carl Zeiss optics with autofocus and dual-LED flash is good.

Size of the display is huge 4.3 inches with 480 x 800 pixels resolution at ~217 ppi pixel density. The display is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass.
