iPhone 6 design reportedly finalised with 4.8-inch screen

Apple has reportedly finalised the iPhone 6 design, with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 rival said to be heading to launch with a 4.8-inch display in tow.

The latest iPhone 6 rumours have surfaced courtesy of a Wall Street analyst, with the industry specialist reporting that the final iPhone 6 design has been decided upon ahead of the handset being put into production in time for release later this year.

Speaking in a note to investors, Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri stated that the iPhone 6 design has been “locked down”, with the claimed move to a larger 4.8-inch display lining up alongside the introduction of high speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity.

Basing his predictions on reported checks within Apple’s supply chain, Arcuri has suggested that Apple is planning to introduce “key software innovations” to the iPhone 6, a move that follows last year’s drastic iOS 7 overhaul.

Stating that the current iPhone 5S was simply a “set-up” to a grander smartphone release this year, the analyst has predicted that the iPhone 6 will focus heavily on a new mobile payment system, with an integrated Touch ID fingerprint scanner set to be a base for the new platform.

Although Arcuri has predicted that the iPhone 6 release date will follow Apple’s now customary product cycle and launch in September, earlier this week is was claimed that the phone will launch as early as June.

While a June arrival is generally considered to be a bit premature, the Wall Street analyst has stated that such a launch window is “not out of the question” just yet.
