The new iPhone 6 release date rumors claim Apple is now shooting for a launch a bit earlier than previously anticipated.
In a related report from The Inquisitr, the original rumored release date for the iPhone 6 was in September and some people thought we might see exotic features like a holographic keyboard.
Now it’s being said in certain circles of the internet that the iPhone 6 could enter production as early as May of this year, and launch in summer the months following.
So what’s new about this iPhone 6? As shown in a concept video, the iPhone 6 might get a new color scheme, featuring gold and silver much like the iPhone 5C. The video also proposes a new 600 dpi pixel density fingerprint sensor and a 4.7 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution screen with Gorilla Glass 3. Allegedly, the iPhone 6 may also get an 8-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and F1.8 lens. It’s also rumored to be slim, but heavier than previous iPhones.
One new feature of the iPhone 6 will potentially be the ability for near field communication (NFC), the lack of which Apple users have griped about for awhile now. A patent filed by Apple suggests they might be integrating this technology into their minimalist devices.
On the other hand, rumor has it that another next-gen iPhone will have a 5.7 inch screen with higher resolution. So it’s possible you might want to wait and see what else Apple will cook up. At the same time, iPhone 6 rumors also claim it’s possible we’ll see the launch of two different versions of the new iPhone in 2014, with one being considerably larger than the other. Considering that the iPhone 5S launched right next to the iPhone 5C this rumor doesn’t seem that outlandish.
So what do you think, will you be upgrading to the iPhone 6 this summer?
