Apple’s iPhone 6 is already the hot topic in the tech world, we have already heard plenty of different rumors, but we are starting to slowly build the picture of what the device should look like and how it will change from the iPhone 5S.
The biggest change on the iPhone 6 will be the display size, Apple will add two devices according to KDB Daewoo Securities, a South Korean firm that has been correct on Apple leaks before.
In a note to investors, KDB Daewoo revealed a 4.7/4.8-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch “iPhablet” will be coming in the second or third quarter of 2014. The one difference on this report, to others, is the introduction of the term iPhablet.
On the display side, Apple will update both iPhone 6 models, the 4.8-inch model will have the common 1920 x 1080 resolution, while the 5.5-inch iPhablet will have a 2272 x 1280 pixel display, an odd resolution.
Internally, the report claims Apple will add a new A8 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16/32/64/128GB internal storage options, an 8MP rear camera, 3.2MP front facing camera and 1800mAh battery.
The report did not say whether the iPhablet will have any change on the internal side, they could be the same. We wonder what Apple will do to make the iPhablet more appealing, apart from the larger screen.
KDB Daewoo also revealed that Apple would be looking to not make a full jump on the software side, calling the next update iOS 7.2, instead of iOS8. This conflicts with earlier reports, that say Apple will be adding fitness tracking and smartwatch functionality on the new update.
Apple may look to create a new market called the iPhablet, even though the name coined by Samsung and others is not accepted worldwide, it is starting to trend more and would give Apple another reason to show their innovative side.
