Apple iPhone 6 in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models will be out in September, rumors said, adding that the company intends to make 600 million units sold from the release date.
Although not certain as to what date is the release of Apple?s next iPhone product, a lot has been said and there are rumors that it would be this September. Interesting to note is the newest claim that Apple will be launching two phones in the market for the second year in a row.
According to Nikkei Asian Review, ?Suppliers of LCD panels for Apple’s new iPhone will ramp up production soon, in line with a timetable for a worldwide launch as early as September. The new phone, expected to be called the iPhone 6, will likely be offered in 4.7- and 5.5-inch versions, both of which are larger than the current generation’s 4-inch screen. Manufacturers have apparently begun making such components as fingerprint sensors and chips for liquid-crystal drivers.?
In addition the Japanese business news publication Nikkei also reported today, that the fingerprint sensors and chips for liquid-crystal drivers for the new phones have already been started, and mass production of LCD panels would start in the next quarter of the year.
?Mass production of liquid crystal display panels will start as early as the April-June quarter at Sharp’s Kameyama factory, Japan Display’s Mobara plant, and elsewhere, according to sources. LG Electronics will supply panels as well. The new handset’s display resolution is expected to be significantly higher than that of current models,? Nikkei wrote.
Several reports have also been published about the upcoming iPhone 6. Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal had previously reported the about the screen sizes and developments on the issue.
Moreover, since iPhone 5 has produced 500-million units sold, rumors said that Apple?s intention is to sell 600-million out of iPhone 6. Tech Times reported, ?600 million mark is expected to be eclipsed this year on the back of the much anticipated iPhone 6. From a competitive standpoint and following Apple’s normal new iPhone launch time line it does make sense
Apple released the iPhone 5, its first-ever 4-inch iPhone way back September 2012 that leads many to the conclusion that Apple would possibly released iPhone 6 in September.
If the rumors are true, well, we will know in the days to come.
