Rumours Claim iPhone ‘Phablet’ Coming in Spring, ‘iPhone 6’ in September
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.
