Now that the latest devices from Samsung and HTC have been announced, expect iPhone 6 rumors to dominate the next few months.
The latest: Apple’s manufacturing partners are reportedly gearing up production for the iPhone 6′s screens in May, which will come in 4.7-inch and and 5.5-inch varieties, reports Reuters.
We’ve been hearing for a while that Apple was considering two new screen sizes for the next iPhone. The 4.7-inch screen would be a significant upgrade over the iPhone’s current 4-inch display, and it would make the iPhone 6 directly competitive to typical Android display sizes. The 5.5-inch screen, on the other hand, would be a grab for the big-screen “phablet” market (phones that are so big they look like tablets).
Reuters sources note that Japan Display, Sharp, and LG are all producing iPhone 6 displays for Apple. While the display manufacturers are reportedly ready to start producing 4.7-inch screens for Apple next month, it may be several months until they can start making the 5.5-inch panels.
Japanese gadget blog Macotakara recently posted some potential schematics for two iPhone 6 models, which also detail 4.7-inch and phablet sizes (the plans show a 5.7-inch screen, instead of a 5.5-inch version). Taking those schematics a bit further, designer Martin Hajek mocked up what the iPhone 6 could look like on the French Apple blog yesterday.
Hajek’s designs show far rounder edges than the iPhone 5S, as well as an insanely thin profile. Given how much competing smartphone designs have progressed since Apple released the iPhone 5 (just take a look at HTC’s new One), Apple will have to work hard to maintain its reputation for stunning design with its next iPhone.Our fourth annual VentureBeat Mobile Summit, April 14-15 at the scenic Cavallo Point Resort in Sausalito, Calif., will gather the top mobile 180 executives to tackle the biggest growth opportunities in the industry today.
