New iPhone 6 rumors are starting to circulate once again, with Apple allegedly working on the latest iPhone model that could feature a bigger screen — at an estimated 5 inches or so — and a potential release date of Spring 2014. While it’s only been several months since the release of the long awaited iPhone 5S, smartphone fans are already ready to get their fingers clicking on the upcoming version. The Inquisitr shares this Monday, Dec. 23, 2013, some of the speculation behind these updated claims and what changes may be on the way.
The iPhone 6 will no doubt have some improvements to offer from the iPhone 5S, which boasted a new 64-bit chip, a unique fingerprint sensor, and enhanced capabilities. What’s in store for the latest generation smartphone? In addition to a possible Spring release date and 5 inch touch screen, Digitech technology blog highlighted what could be coming in a report on the 12.9 inch tablet that’s scheduled for late 2014.
“In addition to tablets, Apple is also rumored to be planning a larger size iPhone for May 2014, using a 20nm processor manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the sources revealed.”
While many of the iPhone 6 rumors remain only rumors at this point in time, several reports from the site have alleged that the display will be clearer and sharper than the iPhone we have now as well. Other features and design sets are also possible, though analysts think one design change that won’t be making an appearance is curves. It’s estimated that it won’t be until at least 2015 until Apple is able to effectively incorporate a curved display into their electronic devices.
However, a push for the iPhone 6 to make its debut and boast the latest technology as early as May (or at least springtime) 2014 is “strongly hinted,” concludes the press release.
“Releasing a device with a larger display is an interesting move for Apple because it will be a rare instance where the company will be following rival Samsung, which first sparked the tablet craze back in 2012 with its original Galaxy Note. It would be rare to see Apple release a new version of the iPhone so close to the release of its latest iPhone 5s but maybe the company doesn’t want to wait much longer to put out a device with a larger form factor.”
