2013 seems to be an Android-annum. But the same seems not to be so hopeful for Apple-freaks. Rumors suggest that the release date of iPhone 5S has been postponed, due to some fresh hardware updates that the tech-giant is going to initiate in its 5th generation device.
Fans expected iPhone 6 to be released this year, but sadly, with the postponement of iPhone 5S’ launch, iPhone 6 is probable to hit the shelves only in 2014.
Sources reveal that iPhone 6 will possess a larger screen, though Tim Cook’s statement differs from what users have been expecting. Cook stated that Apple is more inclined towards the quality of display rather than its dimension. He further added that currently Apple features the best quality screen display, which obviously is true.
Peter Misek, Jeffries analyst brought out a note to investors mentioning that he thinks iPhone 6 will make its release in June 2014.
Rumors indicate that iPhone 6 will feature a 4.8 inches display screen, dimensionally similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z and HTC One. With this display size, Apple may shift to a complete High Definition (1920×1080 resolution) or may upgrade to a superior display resolution. Citigroup Capital Markets associate Glen Yeung recently stated that iPhone 6 may come up with a larger display, but Apple will not shed light on the device until the first half of 2014.
Sources blame the delay in production of A7 processor to be the cause of delay in iPhone 6’s launch. Samsung Electronics constructs Apple’s processor, but considering disputes between the two giants previous year, it seems that Apple will be seeking a new manufacturer for its processors. Eight Samsung smartphones were banned in several nations under legal allegations filed by Apple. So, none is sure about Apple’s decision on a new manufacturer.
Rumors are buzzing over iPhone 6’s specs, but the delay news is unfortunate. However, it is probable that Apple may focus on something really surprising for its fans in the meantime.
