Japanese business daily Nikkei reported that the iPhone 6 launch would take place globally in the month of September in two screen sizes. The screen sizes as well as the resolutions – both would be bigger in the newest products from the house of Apple.
The iPhone 6 is likely to have 4.7- or 5.5-inch screen, which will be up from its present 4-inch panel. However, there were no sources cited in the report.
Apple will be getting their higher-resolution LCD screens from a Japanese firm, Sharp. It’s an electronic company in Japan that’s currently meeting the requirements from Apple. However, there was no word from Sharp about the order they had taken.
There are a couple of other companies from which Apple would be placing the orders with – South Korean LG Display and Japan Display.
Commercial Times from Taiwan had reported that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. has already begun manufacturing the chips for the next product from Apple – most probably the iPhone 6.
Apple had released the iPhone 5 in the month of September 2012. This was followed by the various variants of the phone like the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C in the previous year.
Leaks in the past have predicted a thinner body for iPhone 6 apart from having screens with higher pixel density and powerful processor. As a matter of fact, both Samsung and TSMC are said to be manufacturing the new A-series ‘Apple A8’ chips.
There were also rumors about Sonny Dickson, the teenager from Australia who had ‘predicted’ the specifications of the iPhone 5S.
