Chinese news site Huanqiu reports that Apple is planning to release its next generation iPhone earlier than expected. The company is said to be releasing a larger iPhone in May, which will be a separate product from the iPhone 6, said to launch in September.
The larger iPhone will reportedly have a display bigger than 5-inches and be powered by a new Apple A8 processor, said to be an improvement over the 64-bit A7 CPU.
According to ETNews the iPhone 6 will be thinner and lighter than the current iPhone 5S, coming in at 6 mm thin, down from the current 7.6 mm on the 5S. ETNews reports the new iPhone will launch in two display sizes, 4.7-inches and 5.7 inches respectively.
Apple is expected to keep the iPhone 5S and reduce its price by $100 with the introduction of the new iPhone.
