Apple are rumored to launch two versions of their iPhone 6, one with a 4.7 inch display, the other with a 5.5 inch display, and now according to a recent report, the 5.5 inch model of the handset may be called the iPhone Air.
The news comes from accessory maker Spigen, who have suggested that the 5.5 inch model of the new iPhone 6 will actually be called the iPhone Air.
This would make sense for Apple to call the larger handset the iPhone Air, as it would allow it to easily differentiate between the 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch models, and it would also tie in with Apple’s iPad Air.
The company has listed a couple of new cases for the iPhone 6 on Amazon, and they appear to have a launch date of the 30th of September 2014.
This would tie in with what we heard previously about the release date for Apple’s new iPhone, which is rumored to launch on the 19th of September, and we are expecting the handset to be made official at an Apple event on the 9th of September.
So far we know a number of things about Apple’s new iPhones, both handsets will come with a new Apple A8 processor, improved graphics and more RAM than the iPhone 5S.
The handsets are also said to come with a new TouchID fingerprint sensor, this is said to be more durable and accurate than the current sensor.
We are also expecting new cameras, with an updated FaceTime camera on the front of the new iPhone, and improved rear cameras. There have been rumors that each model of the new iPhone will get different cameras, with EIS on the 4.7 inch model and OIS on the 5.5 inch iPhone Air.
We also heard earlier today that the new iPhones will come with a sapphire glass display, this will be on both the 4.7 inch version and 5.5 inch version of Apple’s new smartphones.Filed Under: Apple, Apple iPhone, Top News
