Aside from talks about iPhone 6 release date rumors, another huge issue surrounding the device is its screen size. Previous claims state that the iPhone 6 screen size may be as large as 6 inches, putting the device besides competitors such as Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that are under the 'phablet' category in the market.
However, though some experts are expecting a phablet-sized iPhone 6, fresh set of rumors are now saying that the device may have a larger display, though not as huge as 6 inches. As reported by Know Your Mobile, citing a prominent analyst from Jeffries, Peter Misek, the iPhone 6 may have a 4.8 inch screen size, basing his claim on his recent meetings with Asian suppliers for Apple.
Furthermore, the post from Know Your Mobile also mentioned another possible timeframe for iPhone 6 release date, saying that Apple might be thinking of September 2014 launch of the device. As posted on the report, citing a statement from Misek, it reads, "We think the 85 million iPhones eligible for an upgrade when the iPhone 6 launches (we think Apple is targeting Sep 2014) could be boosted by another 5-10 million from people who skipped the 5S/5C cycle,"
Allegedly, the screen may feature IGZO technology from Sharp, as well as NFC or near field communications technology, which is found on Samsung Galaxy devices. Moreover, the iPhone 6, is expected to have a significantly huge internal storage of up to 128 GB.
The iPhone 6 may also be equipped with an upgraded processor, the A8 chip. The new iOS smartphone may also be available in champagne or gold color once it is released in the market.
More news about iPhone 6 release date will definitely come up in the following months.
