Iphone 6 A Turning Point? Will the new Apple iPhone 6 script a new chapter in the revolution for smartphones?
Apple has always brought a surprise package for its customers and this time it tends to plan something big—the all new iPhone 6. With the launch of its latest iPhones 5s and 5c Apple has created a curiosity in the mind of users and tech pundits as to how the new iPhone 6 will be. Will it contain a faster CPU and a new version of iOS? Or there would be out-of-the-box technology in the upcoming phone? These are some questions which have created a buzz in the market about the new device Apple is working on. Here’s our roundup of Apple iPhone 6 buzz that might just be plausible.
Screen: Bigger and Curvier
One rumour that is going to be true is the bigger display used in iPhone 6. Apple’s customers have always complaint the limited size of their iPhones. But it seems Apple is working on this and to give a tough competition to its rivals, Apple will launch iPhone 6 in two sizes, one with a 4.7-inch display and the other a 5.5-inch phablet. With the Retina display blended with full HD and high pixel density, the device will be bigger and better. There has also been speculation that the iPhone 6 might incorporate glass that curves down at the edges and possibly might include pressure-sensitivity sensors.
Advent of Sapphire Glass
Apple is rumoured to use Sapphire Glass which is currently used in to protect iPhone 5s Touch ID and camera. Sapphire Glass will protect the entire display, making the next flagship device tougher than other smartphones. Apple is building a Sapphire Glass plant in Arizona in partnership with GT Advanced Technologies (GTAT).
No Home Button
According to reports, Apple’s upcoming mobile will integrate a Touch ID fingerprint sensor into the entire screen of the next (big) iPhone, eliminating the need for a Home button. This has been rumoured to use Liquidmetal (an alloy that’s stronger than aluminium). The alloy could be used in buttons and switches in order to toughen up what have often proved to be weak points on previous iPhones.
The last iPad release showcases the Apple’s capability of making the device real thin. Like iPad Air, Apple is rumoured to make iPhone 6 world’s slimmest smartphone. It has been said that the new device will be just 0.24 inches thick which is slimmer than iPhone 5s.
