A massive leak has provided Apple fans with a sneak peek at the specs for the iPhone 6. Here is a guide to all the updated info we now have on the iPhone 6′s technical specs, as well as info on the release date for this new phone.
BGR reports that this latest leak comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a track record for making accurate predictions about Apple’s new products. These predictions are usually based on sources in the Apple supply chain.
2. iPhone 6 Will Have Bigger Screen, New Processor
According to BGR, Kuo believes that the new iPhone 6 will have a 4.7-inch display, with a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch.
“Kuo said that the iPhone 6 will feature a new Apple A8 processor along with 1GB of RAM. While rival Android devices move to 2GB or even 3GB of RAM in 2014, Apple is apparently content to stick with 1GB…
The analyst also says Apple’s new iPhone will feature a big design overhaul that is much thinner, and the bezel on the sides of the display will be reduced by between 10% and 20% so that the phone can still be used comfortably with one hand despite the larger screen.”
3. iPhone 6 Will Have a Sister ‘Phablet’ Offering, Released Later in 2014
Rumors have been swirling for months that the iPhone 6 generation of smartphones would consist of two offerings: a phone, and a larger phablet device. Kuo reports that this rumor is true. The phablet will have a 5.5-inch display.
Kuo predicts that “Apple’s new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will launch late in the third quarter, and the iPhone phablet will launch late in the fourth quarter.” This prediction is further supported by a report from the Industrial and Commercial Times.
This is somewhat surprising, as Apple has never released a larger, “phablet”-sized version of their iPhone before.
