South China Morning Post reported that the two rumored iPhone models will feature larger sapphire displays and that they could arrive in September.
Digitimes reported that Apple supplier TSMC will continue to work with the 8-inch processing in the production of the iPhone 6, after previous reports stated that the company would switch to a larger 12-inch fab.
Chinese media sources [Via GforGames] claimed that the next iPhone 6 may not get the rumored sapphire display as it would substantially increase the device’s price.
However, a report by The Korea Herald suggested that a “bezel-free” display could be a possibility for the handset.
Apple is said to be collaborating with Sony for the production of the FaceTime camera on the iPhone 6, Nikkei Asian Review reported.
Sony would thus be the provider for both the front and rear cameras on the future iPhone.
The iPhone 6 would have a “much lighter frame”, and a 4.7-inch display, LED Inside reported.
The smartphone could also feature a slimmer design, going from a 0.6 to a 0.4mm “side-view type LED.”
The report added that June is a likely launch date for the next iPhone.
Photos posted by an anonymous Twitter user and by Australian journalist Sonny Dickson claim to reveal an iPhone 6 with a larger screen and an edge-to-edge display.
However, the images have been classified as fake by various sites who wrote that they actually look like 3D renders, and not photographs of leaked parts.
A 3D concept of the iPhone 6 showed a display that could be larger than the current one.
Ciccarese Design came up with concepts of the device with different displays of various sizes.
The concepts feature edge-to-edge displays measuring 4.7 and 5.5 inches.
And finally, while it may be too soon to even think about standing in line for the iPhone 6, an Apple fan has already started to do so.
Japanese blogger Yoppy is the first to stand in line outside an Apple Store in Tokyo in order to get the highly-anticipated device.
