Apple to launch iPhone 6 in two sizes this year?

Latest reports suggest Apple is gearing up to launch the iPhone 6 in two different sizes.

Apple will reportedly break from tradition and launch two variations of the iPhone 6 later this year.

According to unnamed Foxconn executives, Apple could launch 4.7- and 5.7-inch iPhone 6 models.

Both iPhone 6 variants will feature the TouchID sensor introduced with the flagship iPhone 5S at the end of last year.

The latest rumour reinforces information that surfaced earlier in 2013, suggesting the Cupertino company will launch two different iPhone 6 sizes.

In September, it was suggested Apple was testing iPhone 6 prototypes with screen sizes up to 6-inches, although no actual sizes were listed.

In October, an analyst stated Apple was testing 4.7- and 5.7-inch iPhone screens, while notorious Apple tipster Brian White said a few days later he had knowledge of an iPhone 6 with a screen size that “could approach 5-inches.”

There were also other rumours of a 5.5- and 4.9-inch screen though, so, as usual, take these new rumours with a pinch of salt.

iPhone 5S Features

The iPhone 5S currently has a 4-inch 1136 x 640p resolution screen with a 326ppi image density.

The TouchID wielding smartphone has an Apple A7 processor with a 64-bit architecture and features an M7 motion coprocessor for fitness and movement feedback.

It also has an 8-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, True Tone flash and five element lens. Apple also introduced a hybrid IR filter with the iPhone 5S too.

The front-facing FaceTime camera was upgraded to 1.2-megapixels with 720p HD video recording.

Offered in space grey, gold or silver, the iPhone 5S can be purchased with 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.

Apple, the company that excels at selling 2 year old technology as "something new". I remember when "We don't need bigger screens or NFC was a fight song for Apple fans. And now the iWatch has delays? Guess they invented that also.

I adore Apple , but I always find that Apple like to choose the hard road to get to the top, I mean that although technology offers phones and the upgraded service from Apple , however, we must dispense with the use of Bluetooth with other devices as well as NFC, limitation is internal memory and also use iTunes to transfer files instead USB Mass Storage despite its ease, and also the inability to download and save from Safari and so much restrictions making it USELESS!! And most importantly, is the fragility of the outer surface, which has a simpler irresistible shocks resulting from the fall .. Despite the cost price, Apple is charging more and delivering less.

I think that Apple won't find it so difficult to integrate and provide such services very simple while protecting the PRIVACY of its USERS/CONSUMERS and protection of the iOS, in addition; iOS is still a very closed system that also relies heavily on iTunes with no ability to transfer file/data from the device back to the PC and more than 1 PC which is very important.

It is very important to focus on serving the AppStore for amounts more competitive with other OSs, and I think they need to work more on Battery's capacity, life and performance.

I've the iPhone 4S & Galaxy S4, I've experimented Model Newest and also other OS as Android, Smartphone, Windows Mobile and I hope to find a lot of advantages in which Apple, and eager to buy the latest coming model, with a lot of wonderful and extraordinary specifications that are beyond expectations.

We indeed need to be more surprised before it would become as in TOTALLY NOTHING SPECIAL but LOOKS and BRAND !!

And for now.. I'll still preferring my Android.
