Rumours Of iPhone 6 Production Plans
Apple is preparing to begin on production for the iPhone 6 according to reports. Rumours have also circulated about the supposed release date in June of this year. Reports suggest that Apple is already undergoing trials for the next generation the iPhone after the release of the iPhone 5 in September of 2012. Apple is set to begin production of the device in March.
Other strongly believed rumours that the iPhone 6, believed to be named the iPhone 5S, will bear a 4.8-inch display screen. This is an increase to the particularly large iPhone 5 screen which displayed a four inch screen.
These rumours are also accompanied by newer rumours from China that the new iPhone will enter the ever growing ‘phablet market’ this year as Apple will create what is said to be a smartphone with the characteristics of a tablet. Industry experts have also suggested that the new device will be equipped with a super HD camera Near Field Communications technology to up the handset’s credentials as a digital wallet, improved battery life and a huge 128GB of storage. The seventh generation iPhone is said to be available in various new colour options including red, silver, slate, purple, green, blue, yellow and pink when released.
Some are naming it the iPhone 6 already however due to findings of a leaked image of the back of the new phone; it is more likely to be a slightly more advanced version of the iPhone 5. The design does differ but not greatly. This is set to be a slightly more developed iPhone 5 which should hold a faster processor and improved material in which is more resistant to scratches and other damages. These leaks also claimed that the device should be launched within the first half of 2013 and presumably the summer.
This may all sound like a bit of a rush as developments have not even begun yet however, it would be a tactical move as it would completely rival the Samsung Galaxy S4 which is also expected to land around that time. Even igniting rumours would cause fewer sales for Samsung.
