Right after the release of iPhone 5, the rumors of iPhone 6 are spreading up. The release of smart handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z and HTC One also gives high expectation from Apple this time.There is an assumption due to the previous trend set up by iPhone that an iPhone 5s will release before iPhone 6. It’s been said that there will be three size variants for the new iPhone. Artist Peter Zigich calls the handsets iPhone 6 Mini, iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 XL.
Few reports say that a new 5S will be released in the middle half of this year and iPhone 6 will be released towards the end of the year or in the beginning of 2014.
Most of the time, Apple releases two-phones-per-year as part of it’s upgrade cycle, therefore you can expect a springtime 5S model and a bigger, iPhone 6, update in the Autumn, probably September. Recent reports have shown that Foxconn has added as many as 10,000 production workers per week to its Zhengzhou plant inorder to meet the orders after the release.
It’s been rumored that Apple’s working on plastic cases for the next iPhone series, mixing plastic and metal in such a way that “the internal metal parts can be seen from outside through special design.
A KGI analyst has recently mentioned that Apple would turn to manufacturer Pegatron for making up to 75 per cent of low cost iPhone products. It’s been said that iPhone 6 will have a Sharp IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) screen. This new technology allows the screens to use less power and make it more thinner. The new screen technology will make the screen scratch resistant and thinner than existing screens.
It’s been rumored that Apple will be using sapphire crystal for its next-generation phones which is really tough and unbreakable. It will definitely add on to the cost of iPhone6.
It’s been assumed that iPhone 6 will come with a 4.8inch screen and it will look almost similar to Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One. At this screen resolution, there is a possibly for Apple to go on to a Full HD (1,920×1,080 resolution) or even more than that. iPhone 6 is rumored to run on iOS 7 version.
It’s been said thatiPhone 6 will come with a 12-megapixel sensor, a greater version when compared to the 8-megapixel version of iPhone 5. Increasing the sensor can lead to problems like noise as there’s less light per pixel. Apple will work hard to counteract such problems, therefore you can expect a lens with a faster aperture.
There are rumors sounding that iPhone 6 will have 128 GB storage right after the launch of a 128GB iPad 4.
