This is not the first time we’re hearing about a rumor hinting at launch of iPhone 6 with a larger display. We heard that Apple is testing screen sizes ranging from 4.8-inch to 6-inch and will unveil them later this year.
According to a new report from South China Morning Post, Apple will launch two new iPhones in September with screen sizes of 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch respectively, citing industry insiders who have seen the prototypes of the devices.
The report also mentions it will be made of sapphire crystal glass, the second hardest material after diamond, and will also be used in the iPhone camera lens and touch identification. The report further specified that the iPhone 6 will come with a pixel density of 441 ppi which is a lot higher compared to the previous iPhone 6.
The report from SCMP continues to say, citing the two insiders, that Apple will discontinue the colorful iPhone 5C later this year when they will launch the new iPhone 6. Instead, it will be replaced by the current iPhone 5s made from cheaper material, which could be possible as it would reduce the costs of the device.
Both these new iPhones are expected to see the light of the day in September in the usual upgrade cycle of the Cupertino company.
There are no exact details about what iPhone 6 will bring at the table, and there’s no official word from Apple about it nor there will be until it’s launch. So let’s just take this rumor with a grain of salt. We will update you once we get more information about the alleged iPhone 6.
