iPhone 6 Release Date: Apple's Anticipates Bigger Screen For Latest Smartphone Model
Apple's iPhone 6 is predicted to be bigger than then previous models of the smartphone Know Your Mobile reported Monday.
"Our meeting with a tech supply chain vendor highlighted a bigger iPhone is in the works, and our contact expects a launch in the second quarter 2014/third quarter 2014 time frame," Brian White of Cantor Fitzgerald told Know Your Mobile.
The company's next device, due out in the second fiscal quarter of 2014 is expected to have a 4.8 inch display, 0.8 larger than its current iPhone 5 models. These include the 5C, and 5S, and are selling well Know Your Mobile reported. As of last weekend, the company distributed nine million more smartphones.
There is a lot of buzz about the iPhone 6 because it is anticipated to be the first iPhone with a screen the size of an android.
"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," analyst Peter Misek of Jefferies told Know Your Mobile.
While Apple is aiming for a bigger screen on the iPhone 6, it has been pondering the idea since the company released the first version of the smartphone.
The company has been happy with the results of initial tests.
Although not much else is known about what the new iPhone 6 will feature, Apple expects to rely less and less on Samsung products to operate their smartphones.
"Despite the on-going patent disputes between the two companies and Samsung's increased position as Apple's leading smartphone and tablet rival, the Galaxy Note 3 producer has supplied the processing unit's for all of Apple's iPhone handsets to date," trusted reviews reported. "On top of this, Samsung has been used as a component supplier for RAM modules and display units in the past,"
Designers, and computer aided designs have also allowed engineers to experiment with possibilities.
