iPhone 6 Release Date Soon After Unveiling Might Surprise Us All
It is strongly believed that Apple plans on using the news briefing that will take place on the 9th of September, as the occasion to unveil their long-awaited flagship device, the iPhone 6. However, in regards to the actual release of the handset, it seems like Apple will take another week after the unveiling, before finally giving the public a chance to grab the Apple most wanted.
Specialized in Apple related news and rumors, MacRumors reported that while this might be the case for Apple’s smaller version of the upcoming iPhone 6, which sports only 4.7 inches of display, the situation is a little different for the bigger 5.5 inch variant of the device, which will cross into the phablet domain of the smartphone market. It seems like the first Apple phablet will take at least a few months after the unveiling before it actually hits the shelves. The motive invoked for this delay was associated with complicated problems regarding the model’s manufacturing. The earliest we can expect the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 is sometime during December 2014.
According to a report by 9to5Mac, which obtained leaked photographs of the device, the new iPhone 6 will be bigger and thinner than its 2013 predecessor. It seems like the device is taking a stand from previous iPhone designs, and will display round corners among others. The leaked photographs were shots of the iPhone 5S and the upcoming 4.7 inch iPhone 6, snapped side by side.
A highly anticipated feature that might actually make its way on top of the iPhone 6 would be the sapphire glass cover. It seems there is a chance for the iPhone 6 to release late enough for the technology to be featured on the device. However, only the bigger, 5.5 inch version would benefit from it, and the quantity of iPhones bearing the sapphire glass cover would be limited due to the incapability of Apple’s supplier to produce more than 2 million units by the end of 2014.
Massive production numbers
DigiTimes, which also supplied the report on the sapphire glass cover technology situation, also report that Asian suppliers for peripheral chips claim to have received orders for about 100 million copies, from Apple, so even though the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 might come in limited quantities, it seems like Apple is moving huge amounts of iPhone 6 units for the second half of 2014.
After seeing a leaked schematic of the device, G4Games reported that there is a possibility for the new iPhone 6 to come with as many as 128 GB of internal memory.
Moving over to RAM memory, it seems like Apple, according to reports, might be acquiring part of its RAM necessity from fellow electronics manufacturer and smartphone market rival, Samsung, so a part of the iPhone 6 units will, maybe, contain a bit of Samsung in them.
9to5Mac reports that the new iPhone 6 will feature a reverse USB cable coupled with a Lightning cable, to improve the charging capabilities of the device. The improvement of this particular area was promised for some time, and it seems it might finally take shape through Apple’s latest flagship.
High resolution displays
Claiming that he came about this information by initially knowing the displays for the iPhone 6 variants will be optimized with known codes from iOS 8, known Apple watcher, John Gruber, reported that the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 will sport high resolutions of 1334 x 750 and 2208 x 1242 respectively.
Apparently, China Telecom has practically confirmed the new iPhone will reach China in an unlocked format. This, combined with the information collected from the US suggests that the two countries might benefit of the same launch and release date for the IPhone 6.
