Gossip is running amuck in Asia regarding the iPhone 6, even though no release date, nor information about the phone, has been announced. With the iPhone 5s a young four months old, it seems presumptuous to be discussing an upcoming model, but that hasn’t stopped the talk in Asian markets.
ET News, a Korean publication, reports that the iPhone 6 will be incredibly thin – a whopping 6 millimeters, compared to the 7.6 millimeter thickness of the 5s. Although no name has been given to the future Apple phone, ET News has aptly dubbed it the “iPhone Air” as, if the rumors are true, it will be one of the thinnest gadgets on the market.
Last fall, Ming-Chi-Kuo, a KGI Securities analyst with a proven track record for correctly predicting the features and logistics of Apple products, said the iPhone 6 will have a larger screen, most likely 5 inches, giving more room for internal components and allowing Apple to make the phone as svelte as possible.
The ever-evolving iPhone is par for the course with Apple, who thrives on constantly improving the enormously popular smartphone. Last year Apple introduced a lower-cost, plastic model after years of avoiding the “discount” smartphone arena. Apple is also rumored to be releasing a 13-inch iPad in 2014.
Even with all these expected changes and floating rumors, Apple enthusiasts will have to wait until this upcoming fall before the company releases any information regarding the iPhone.
