Earlier this morning rumours claimed Apple would launch iPhone 6 sales on September 19 and skip the option for 16GB models. Now, supply chain sources tell Asian publication Wei Feng (via MacRumors) only the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will have an option for 128GB of memory, excluding the 4.7-inch model (Google Translation below):
Wei Feng network news, according to the latest reports from an Apple supply chain this year, Apple will add a high-saved version of iPhone 6, which is 128GB. However, 128GB version only for 5.5 inches models.
Rumours claim Apple will differentiate the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 from the ‘smaller’ 4.7-inch model by offering more features, such as optical image stabilization. Recent surveys note consumers may be willing to pay a premium of $100 more for the larger iPhone 6 model.
Apple currently offers 128GB options for its iPad Air and Retina iPad mini, something iPhone owners have longed for as on-device storage needs continue to grow. By offering a 128GB option for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, the report notes it would allow the device to act accordingly as a ‘phablet’.
Now, if this rumour holds true, let’s hope Apple will price entry 32GB iPhone 6 versions the same as they would 16GB models. Or do you think they might skip the 16GB price and just start it at 32GB pricing?
Would you pay extra for a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 to get access to 128GB of storage?
