Apple has placed order for large screen iPhone 6 model amounting to around 80 million units. In fact, Apple has asked the manufacturers to produce between 70 million and 80 million large screen iPhones. They are expected to get the orders by this year end.
Large screen iPhone 6
This is the biggest startup production of the iPhones, according to the Wall Street Journal. Though Apple has placed the orders, it was not known who the suppliers were.
Last year, there were orders for the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S amounting to somewhere between 50 million and 60 million units. However, it’s going to be large screen iPhone 6 models with 11.9cm (4.7-inch) and 14cm (5.5-inch) screen size.
It was earlier reported that the iPhone 6 would see September launch this year. However, an update later followed saying the iPhone 6 launch will not take place this year.
Manufacturers of the Large Screen iPhone 6
Foxconn and Pegatron Corp are the two companies that will start the mass manufacturing of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 variant. The production will get underway from the next month. Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd will produce the 5.5-inch variant from the month of September this year.
The new devices from Apple will be the large screen iPhone 6 – larger than the previous versions of the iPhones iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S.
There will be metal cases for both new variants, which will be pretty much identical with the iPhone 5S. It is also expected that there will be multiple colors for the new Apple phones.
There have been continuous news and rumors regarding the large screen iPhone 6, where news reports talked about the design and the screen size of the gadget being finalized, and that the iPhone 6 will have a 10MP camera.
In-cell Touch Panel Technology
Both the large screen iPhone 6 variants are expected to deploy the in-cell touch panel technology. This technology is built right in the screen and so can make way for thinner structure.
The large screen iPhone 6 has already been postponed. Apple has taken time to get things in place in the hope of having better control over their products.
