Chances are the iPhone 6 launch is still several months away, but even at this relatively early stage most rumours seem to be saying much the same thing: two display sizes – both bigger than the iPhone 5, Q3 launch, blah blah blah.
A report from KDB Daewoo Securities, however, weighs in with two slightly bizarre claims, specifically regarding the iPhone 6 launch date and software version.
For starters, the iPhone 6 launch date is noted as 2Q14-3Q14, which is actually a rather significant six-month window. Care to narrow it down, guys?
We seriously doubt the iPhone 6 launch will go down in April or May, but it’s not too far-fetched to imagine them (yes, plural) popping up at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June.
See, Android phablets are proving increasingly popular, and Apple – at present – simply doesn’t have any presence in that market.
Enter: the iPhone 6, with – according to KDB Daewoo Securities – a choice of 4.7-4.8in or 5.5in displays. Resolutions are supposedly 1920 x 1080 (440PPI) and 2272 x 1280 (510PPI) respectively.
More bizarre than the potential Q2 launch date is the notion of the iPhone 6 models touching down with iOS 7.2. But wait; is it that weird?
Just yesterday we were saying that iOS 8 is expected to focus largely on the iWatch, which could touch down later in the year – after the iPhone 6 x2.
For what it’s worth, other iPhone 6 specs supposedly include an Apple A8 64-bit processor, 2GB of RAM, a choice of 16, 32, 64 or 128GB storage, 4G LTE connectivity, 8MP/3.2MP cameras, and an 1,800mAh battery.
Again, it’ll likely be several months before it all becomes clear, but we can almost certainly expect two big new iPhones later this year. At some point.
