Can’t wait to get your hands on the iPhone 6? Well, you’ll have to wait a while yet, but a leaked video released from China shows somebody who appears to have already gotten a hold of the device — showing off an even sleeker design than ever before. Although the original video is in Mandarin, a YouTuber has dubbed the video for thirsty iPhone 6 fans who can’t understand the original.
Some of the biggest reveals from the video? Improved TouchID to allow fingerprint unlocking was probably false, although processing speed seems to have improved a bit. The Chinese reviewer also noted that the iPhone 6 feels much lighter than previous models, while fawning over the all-metal body design.
But what can you expect to pay for Apple’s iPhone 6? International Business Times are clocking the most accurate predictions at $650, although this may fluctuate depending on where you are in the world.
“As for the off contract iPhone 6, the device should be retailed starting $650 for the 4.7-inch. Nomura Securities predicted the phablet edition to be $100 more as well. Other predictions came from the Sydney Morning Herald setting the price at $1,000 for Australia, while Value Walk cited a Spanish analyst saying 750 and 950 Euros can be starting points too. The Cupertino-giant has yet to issue final pricing details about the device.”
Based on other speculative leaks, The Economic Times broke down each segment that we’re likely to see updated on the iPhone 6. On-the-go photographers or even just Instagram addicts will be happy to hear that the iPhone 6 camera will likely be a step above its predecessor.
Some say it is still an 8MP one, while others claim it to be a 13MP sensor. Considering that iOS8 will bring in manual camera controls, we expect Apple to opt for a 13MP or 16MP sensor. Other additions that may be included are integrated optical image stabilization for better photos, an enhanced version of the true tone LED flash and a better front camera for selfies.
New iPhone 6 features will also have added benefit of being able to be seen more clearly, not to mention longer for those of us prone to dropping our Apple devices. The much-rumored Sapphire glass is anticipated to cover the new iPhone 6’s screen, but the display itself is very much caught up in the rumor mill. The newest reports say that only a 4.7-inch screen will be available, but previous iPhone 6 speculation additionally pointed to a 5.5-inch version, reported The Economic Times.
Of course, come tomorrow we could find all of these iPhone 6 expectations either diminished, met or totally blown away. Apple CEO Tim Cook will lead a 2,500-person launch party tomorrow at the Flint Centre in Cupertino, California. New iPhone and iPad software, iOS 8, is also on the agenda, reported The Guardian.
