Since the launch of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C back in September last year, we’ve heard several rumor hinting at the possible launch of its successors earlier than the usual Apple upgrade cycle. There are rumors that Apple will unveil two new iPhones this year, which might take place a little early.
Now, another analysts believes the same. According to Mizuho Securities analyst Abhey Lamba, the new iPhone 6 might arrive sooner then expected, possibly in July, citing supply chain checks in Asia. His checks indicate that supply chain vendors are gearing up to begin the production of the alleged device.
“Recently, the company has been introducing new lineup in September time frame whereas the next generation phones could come out in July this year,” he said. “The earlier launch will be helpful for Apple as it will ensure significant availability and distribution of the new device during the holiday season.“
Lamba also says that there’s a possibility that the upcoming iPhone 6 will come with a bigger screen, with multiple models, ranging from 4.7′ to 5.5′, something which we’ve heard numerous times in the past. Additionally, they come come with improved fingerprint sensors with support for more applications, and it could also make their way to the next-generation iPads.
It’s not just the iPhone 6, Apple is also rumored to be working on a smartwatch which might see the light of the day later this year, and could take place in the second half of 2014.
Let’s just take this rumor with a grain of salt as nothing is official until it comes directly from the Cupertino giant.
