The news is getting wild about Apple's next generation iPhone 6 which said to come with a 5.5 inch-screen size. We’ve learned that Tim Cook & Co. could distinguish Apple’s first phablet-class device with several exclusive features.
So what exclusive features Tim Cook is talking about ? These would presumably include (other than display size) optical image stabilization, an ultra-sharp screen at 2K resolution and multiple new sensors for measuring air pressure, temperature and humidity.
Well you can also put now a 128GB size for 5.5" iPhone 6.
According to a new report from a Chinese blog Wei Feng [Google translate] is an indication, Apple may keep the 128GB option exclusive to the 5.5-inch handset.
Last year, a placeholder for such an item briefly appeared in a German retailer’s system. This in turn fueled speculation that the iPhone 5 would gain a new 128GB storage SKU. Instead, Apple went on to add a 128GB variant to the iPad lineup this February.
And just yesterday, another Chinese outlet asserted that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will drop the 16GB SKU and offer only two storage flavors: 32GB and 64GB.
And with massive 5.5 inches of screen real estate and possibly some exclusive content creation apps (i.e. Aperture and Final Cut Pro), it’s entirely conceivable that power users would have no trouble filling up 128 gigabytes with rich media and fat apps.
That’s especially going to be the case in light of the Super Retina screen rumor: games and apps with Retina assets will need even more storage for ultra sharp bitmaps and other assets.
