KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a respectable track record at predicting Apple product plans, is out with another research note that claims the oft-rumored iPhone 6 could be delayed because of production issues. As a result, the smartphone will likelyÂ not be unveiled until at least October and possibly not until next year.
The Guardian has learned from an expert in materials that, as the rumor mill has suggested for months, the next-generation iPhone 6 could have a sapphire crystal display. The super-hardÂ glass would be more scratch-resistant thanÂ Corning’s Gorilla Glass used in current iPhone models, potentially making the next-generation iPhone much more durable.Â
In the last few weeks, we’ve seen a number of iPhone 6 components leaks, that are either shown in photos or videos. This includes the sapphire crystal display, the front panel, and the SIM tray. New photos and a video discovered today show the 4.7-inch iPhone 6′s rear shell, giving us a good look at the new design.
While a recent survey showsÂ that at least one in every three users that plan on purchasing a new iPhone are hoping for longerÂ battery life, a new rumor suggests that the improvements could be minimal. According to G for Games, the oft-rumored iPhone 6 could have only a slightly larger battery because of its ultra-slim design.Â
Couple of days back, we got the first glimpse of iPhone 6′s front panel, which revealed some interesting tidbits about the next generation iPhone’s design.
Weâ€™ve already seen plenty of physical mockups of the iPhone 6, which have given us a glimpse of what Apple’s next generation iPhone will look like.
