Tech Time ::: iPhone 6 Rumor Mill

Have you been keeping up on the latest with the upcoming iPhone 6 and the soon to follow iPhone 6 "phablet?"  I'd dare call them both phablets, but I digress.

Rumors and presumed leaks are calling for this new handset to be slightly larger than the current iPhone5S flagship phone, with a screen of 4.7" diagonally and a possible screen resolution of 1,704 x 960 pixels.  The bezels appear to be thinner on the sides to accommodate a larger screen.  I will be curious how the resolution will translate.  For the rumored iPhablet, rumors indicate a 5.5" diagonally sized screen, which is quite large, but should sate the masses who want a tablet sized phone.

Designwise it will be scaled thinner, to resemble the body styling of the iPadAir that recently came out, with beautifully rounded edges.

It appears that the same release schedule as last year is on target, with a mid-late September sale date being the endgoal for the 4.7" model, and the 5.5" model making it's debut shortly thereafter, closer most likely to Holiday.

I think the 5S is already "big enough" for my liking, but I will be curious what new features, hopefully an even better camera (hopefully), for starters, this new model will bring. Rumors call for NFC technology, among others, based on demand.  I am a huge fan of the newest and best for my smartphones, so I am sure I will be among the masses buying this new one in the 4.7" size. Though, preordering may not occur this time around.

MacRumors really has a fantastic roundup of the rumors, all on one page, if you would like to check in on that. I also like to read up on BGR for their coverage.

What are your hopes for the next generation iPhone?

  1. here's hoping and dreaming of a metallic yellow iphone!!! oh my heart would sing =)

    1. Gold is as close to that as you'll ever get. I think yellow is the poorest selling iPhone color/iPod color ever.


What do you think?
