Release Date

iPhone 6 release date is probably the most speculated in the ever-growing list of rumours pertaining to the upcoming flagship phone from Apple.

For three generations since the release of the iPhone 4s, Apple has made an unceremonious change from the traditional summer release to the holiday season or fall release.

Contrary to earlier expectations that the next-gen iPhone will release in summer 2014, it is now ascertained that the high-profile smartphone will likely be arriving in September or October 2014.

Screen Size and Display Technology

iPhone 6 screen size and display technology are two faces of the same coin, which often hit the spotlight together as both these features are mutually dependent on each other.

iPhone 6 has long been speculated to release in two screen sizes, a 4.7in or 4.9in and a 5.5in version. Both the display variants are expected to support 1920 x 1080 (440ppi) and 2272 x 1280 (510ppi) screen resolution and support indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) technology instead of Low Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon (LTPS) technology found in current iPhones.

Screen Material

iPhone 6 is expected to offer sapphire crystal display instead of Corning Gorilla Glass found in previous iPhones. It may be recalled that the sapphire crystal debuted with the iPhone 5s camera and also found its use in the fingerprint scanner (accessible via home button).

Processor and RAM

iPhone 6 is expected to get a considerable bump in RAM to 2GB along with an upgraded A8 processor chip for enhanced performance over the current-gen A7 chip used in iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad Mini.

Camera

Contrary to earlier rumours suggesting an 8MP rear camera for the iPhone 6, the latest speculation hints at an upgraded 10MP sensor with an improved f/1.8 aperture for enhanced performance in low-light conditions.

Design

iPhone 6 is also expected to become the first device to sport a bezel-free display, according to a latest report on MacRumours. The catch here is to maximise the screen real estate while not increasing the size of the handset too much, and hence the bezel component may be dropped from the display unit.
