iPhone 6 concept

Based on information coming from a source close to the situation, VentureBeat provides some new information on the features of the next Apple smartphone.

New features of the device could include NFC functionality for mobile payment and a wireless charging system.

The new iPhone could actually be equipped with a “surface under the shell which connects to an inductive charging surface for energy transfer.”

The smartphone could also come with Category 6 LTE support, which theoretically allows for data transfer rates of up to 300Mbps.

Finally, as widely expected, the iPhone 6 could have a much larger screen than previous generations.

It could also have three times more pixels, passing the “base resolution” of 568 x 320 to a 1,704 x 960 resolution.

The same source indicates that the handset will arrive with iOS 8 as its operating system.
