Before the official unveiling of the next iPhone 6 models, excitement and anticipation is growing around the smartphones.

This year is even more intense because two iPhones wil be released.

The rumored release date has almost been unofficially established as September 19, according to Chinese website Tencent (via GForGames).

It is also claimed that the smartphone will be available in two storage versions: a 32 GB version and a 64 GB model.

Bloomberg reported that the production of the next iPhone will start in July and both models could be presented simultaneously in September.

The bigger iPhone model reportedly takes longer to produce.

Foxconn is hiring 100 000 additional workers, the most massive recruitment ever undertaken by the company, Taiwan’s Economic Daily News reported.

Also from Taiwan, Topology Research Institute (TRI) expects sales of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 to reach 70 million units by the end of 2014.

The 5.5-inch model could sell between 8 and 10 million units during the same period.

A report from China Times stated that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) will start supplying the Touch ID sensor in early July production in the third quarter will be more than double compared to the previous quarter.

The manufacturer plans to provide 120 million Touch ID sensors this year, a 233% increase compared to 2013.

In terms of features of the two smartphones, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes only the 5.5-inch model will include optical image stabilization.

The OIS for the phablet iPhone will be produced by InvenSense and the 4.7-inch model will come with another type of stabilizer.

The smaller iPhone could bring a lens module that offers increased focus speed and less energy consumption, Kuo says.

In addition, Chinese site Wei Feng reported that the bigger iPhone will be the only one to have a storage capacity of 128GB.

According to China’s Economic Daily News, Apple has rejected Catcher Technology’s production of metal chassis for the iPhone 6 as defects were found at the areas where the metal and plastic are connected.

Apple appealed instead to longtime partners like Jabil and Foxconn.

Of course leaked parts and videos weren’t missing this week either.

Photos of an iPhone 6 dummy managed to offer an idea of ​​the smartphone, confirming rumors about the design and dimensions of the handset.

Japanese blog Mac Otakara posted a video of the rear shell of a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 compared to the iPhone 5S and other iPhone 6 mockups.

Finally, a survey conducted by investment firm RBC Capital Markets found that nearly 50% of the respondents want to replace their smartphones with a new iPhone in the next three months.
