Lightbulb Redisigned iPhone 6 Fully Detailed in Leak From 'Insider' (render)

Hmmmm.... So what you're saying is that it is basically turning it to a Android device with a iOS inside?
I keed...

But let's face it guys, moving to a 4.7 screen and placing the Power button on the Side, is VERY ANDROIDish.

http://news.yahoo.com/completely-red...140038639.html

Quote:
While some industry watchers issue Apple research covering things that never seem to materialize — like the “iRing” and “iTV,” for example — Ming-Chi Kuo has made a name for himself using a slightly different method: his predictions are almost always correct. As such, we should all pay attention when Kuo issues new research on Apple’s plans, and on Thursday morning he sent out a massive report covering what seems to be just about everything there is to know about the upcoming iPhone 6 and iPhone phablet.

In a note to investors sent Thursday that was picked up by MacRumors, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo passed along information gleaned from his always-reliable supply chain sources. In doing so, he may have taken all the mystery out of Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone launches later this year.

Beginning with the main flagship iPhone 6 model, Kuo reports that it will indeed feature a new 4.7-inch display panel. In an earlier note, the analyst said that the new Retina panel will sport a resolution of 1,334 x 750 pixels, which works out to a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch.

Kuo said that the iPhone 6 will feature a new Apple A8 processor along with 1GB of RAM. While rival Android devices move to 2GB or even 3GB of RAM in 2014, Apple is apparently content to stick with 1GB. The comparatively small amount of memory doesn’t seem to be causing any problems thus far.

The analyst also says Apple’s new iPhone will feature a big design overhaul that is much thinner, and the bezel on the sides of the display will be reduced by between 10% and 20% so that the phone can still be used comfortably with one hand despite the larger screen.

Interestingly, Kuo believes that Apple will add NFC chips to this year’s iPhone models.

The new iPhone phablet will feature a full HD 1,920 x 1,080-pixel display that measures 5.5 inches diagonally, according to Kuo. That works out to a pixel density of 401 ppi.

Apple’s first phablet will seemingly sport specs that are very similar to the smaller iPhone 6 model, including the A8 processor, NFC and Touch ID. The battery will be much larger, however, with Kuo suggesting that it will be between 50% and 70% bigger than the current iPhone 5s battery.

Kuo also says that the power/sleep/wake button on both new iPhone models will be moved from the top of the phone to the side, so it can be reached more easily on the larger phones. Many large Android phones have the power button situated on the side as well.

The analyst claims that Apple will switch from Gorilla Glass to sapphire crystal to cover the iPhone’s displays, but possibly only on the high-end models with 64GB of memory. This is due to supply constraints, Kuo said, though ultimately Apple will supposedly move all of its iPhone models to sapphire.

Part of the reason for the shift to sapphire, Kuo said, is that Touch ID may soon be embedded in iPhone display panels rather than home buttons, and sapphire is needed to ensure fingerprint reading accuracy.

According to the report, the iPhone 4s and iPhone 4 will be discontinued and the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will occupy Apple’s two lower-end price slots. In the U.S., that would make the iPhone 5c free on contract while the iPhone 5s would likely retail for $99 on contract.

Kuo says that Apple’s new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will launch late in the third quarter, and the iPhone phablet will launch late in the fourth quarter. His release timing aligns with a report from earlier this week.
Obviously the below pic is CGI but it represents what it should look like.



As a big ANDROID supporter by admission, I believe Apple is DEFINITELY moving in the right direction! Sounds and looks intriguing... I will be sticking with my HTC though.

Ok Apple purists... What say you?

I hope that is the extend of the growing screen size on the phone. having a 5, i could go for a slightly larger screen, but not much. the nearly 3/4" increase may be perfect, i just hope it's not too big.

I do like apple's design quality and iOS quality but syncing is just too annoying.
Maybe I'm not getting this icloud thing but unless I'm consumed by apple products, it's so frustrating.

You know Google's own Android data show that less than 10% of the registered Android devices are a large display, you hear everyone saying the display must be larger but very few people are actually buy one. If it was they important to the buying decision why only 10%.

let see if Apple can change they if in fact they have the bigger display. I think most people pick up those big phones and quickly realize it not comfortable, you look like geek with a big things stuck to your head and it does not fit in your front pocket nicely. The down side of bigger it better out ways it benefits.

What's considered a large display by Android data, greater than 5"? Because even a 4.5" is large compared to any iPhone. The display size was a main consideration in switching away from the iPhone for me.

+1, it looks like what is already available on the market or can be found in other phones. There's nothing new about it. I have a iPhone 5 and it does the job, no complaints with it. But you can definitely tell that apple's game of catch up is a little too late to the game.

It amazes me how blindly dedicated they are to a phone, even when it's not the best on the market.

now i need to figure out what size i wanna get!
i like the idea of having a big screen but the portability will be shot.
Also the power button on the side is throwing me off big time

That side button is probably the vibrate switch.
