iPhone 6 Launching Late Summer (Report)


While we originally expected the iPhone 6 to hit shelves this fall, Apple addicts may be able to get their hands on the highly-anticipated handset even sooner. According to Apple analyst Peter Misek, a late summer release is likely for the company’s latest flagship smartphone.

A late summer iPhone 6 launch would be a slight bump from the phone’s expected fall 2014 release, though it would also come later than a rumored June launch that would coincide with WWDC 2014. According to Misek, display yields will likely keep the device from hitting stores early in the summer.

The analyst also believes that Apple is working on a new motion co-processor to complement the iPhone ‘s M7 chip, which could be delaying a possible early summer reveal. 

As far as the iPhone 6’s specs, the rumor mill continues to churn rapidly. The smartphone giant is once again expected to release two models of its new flagship. A recent rumor suggests that a 4.5-inch screen is possible within the iPhone 5s body,  while Reuters previously reported that Apple is toying with even bigger 4.7 and 5.7-inch screens. 

The iPhone 6 may pack an extra-strong sapphire crystal display and could make the jump to 1600 x 900 or 1920 x 1080 pixels, depending on the screen size. The device’s 8-MP camera isn’t expected to change, though the phone may gain some new camera features in the vein of the Nokia Lumia 1020 and LG G2.
