Another report about the much anticipated next-generation iPhone hits the Internet. According to Sun Chyang Xu – an analyst from China, Apple is going to launch two iPhones in 2014. He is the same analyst who gave a prescient report about the Motorola Moto X.
According to the report, Apple will announce a larger 5.7-inch iPhone along with a 4.7-inch iPhone. iPhone 6 will be the 4.7-inch variant and the 5.7-inch variant would be an altogether new iPhone from Apple.
This 4.7-inch iPhone will have the same 640 x 1136 resolution used on its 4-inch models. Additionally, Apple will start its trial production with production of 2 million to 3 million units starting in May.
4.7-inch model will have an 8-megapixel rear camera sensor so that the phone can remain slim. Although the camera on iPhone 6 sounds same as iPhone 5S, it is going to be the tweaked version of it. According to the report, the rear camera will offer OIS and an aperture of f/1.8, which will offer better photographs in low-light environment.
The second version of iPhone will feature a larger 5.7-inch screen, with higher screen resolution than iPhone 6. According to the previous report, the 4.7-inch model would offer 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and the 5.7-inch model would offer 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. But with the new report this old report seems to be completely redundant.
Both handsets are expected to be introduced at WWDC in June, although the 4.7-inch model will be available shortly after the developers’ conference, and the 5.7-inch model will be released later in the year.
All rumors and reports about the next-generation iPhone have one thing in common, that is the introduction of two variants. By now we can take these two models as granted and expect Apple to officially announce it.
If it happens then, Apple would be launching two iPhones again this year, like the previous year.
