iPhone 6 to have a slim 6mm body and a 5-inch display
Different rumors about the next iPhone continue to spread around the WEB, though we are still far away from the possible release date of the iPhone 6. As you know, the latest iPhones were launched in September 2103 and Apple is quite predictive if we are speaking about product launches. That means iPhone 6 shouldn’t be released on the market before September 2014.
However, according to a new rumor, Apple is developing the iPhone 6 with a 5-inch screen, instead of a 5.7-inch one as previously reported. Moreover, according to our sources, the company will launch a phone called iPhone 5.7 before iPhone 6. This phone with a 5.7 inch screen is expected sometime in Q2 or Q3, while in September we will have the new 5-inch version, the real successor to the Apple iPhone 5.
ET News claims the iPhone 6 will have a very slim body, possibly 6mm, compared with 7.6mm for the current Apple iPhone 5s. Logically, Apple is making the next model larger to compensate the decreased thickness. So, we can have two models in 2014. First the 5.7 inch iPhone 5.7 and later in 2014 the iPhone 6, which is expected with a 5-inch display.
If Apple is really developing two models in 2014, the company can also decide to introduce both models together in September, just like 5s and 5c. According to ET News, the 6th version of the iPhone could be called iPhone Air. Of course, a low-cost product is also expected on the market this year. As we reported yesterday, Apple has difficulties on some markets, due to the lack of budget oriented models. For example, in Italy, Apple is the third OS after Android and Windows Phone.
