The buzz about Apple’s much-anticipated upcoming flagship smartphone, codenamed iPhone 6, is almost certain that it is going to hit the market shelves this autumn. The latest reports are now claiming that the next device might line up for 12 September as its mass production is in the pipeline.
A number of statements from different sources have claimed the launch date of the iPhone 6 over the past couple of weeks. ApfelPage, a German website speculated that it will be released on 19 September, giving the leaks from German wireless carrier Deutsche Telekom as a reference.
Apart from that, Nikkei and a research note by UBS Managing Director Steve Milunovich (via Barron’s) also mentioned that iPhone might surface on the international arena somewhere in August or September.
Meanwhile, Macrumors highlighted that Apple is imminent to release iPhone 6 in the first fortnight of September.
If we look at the past releases of Apple, we can figure out that it launched its iPhone devices on Friday. So in the light of this hypothesis, it should be 12, 19 or 26 September. Just to mention, iPhone 5 was launched nine days prior to its unveiling, whereas iPhone 5S and 5C took 10 days to see the sunlight on this planet.
Furthermore, Apple is also rumored to come up with two variants of its new successor having display panels of 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch. The larger version was also claimed to have a delay in its release but the matter is solved now, and hence one might expect a joint release of these two devices.
The next variants of iPhone are predicted to possess scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass display. They will also feature a top-class 20-nanometer A8 chip (64-bit), operated on latest iOS 8 and envelope an 8MP camera with a number of enhancements such as (OIS) Optical Image Stabilization and a flash light.
Apple Insider and Chinese reports suspect that iPhone 6 will be equipped with a variety of sensors such as pressure, temperature and humidity with the inclusion of low temperature polysilicon in-cell touch panels, Touch ID fingerprint security, NFC and a metallic dressing.
