The buzz around the next-generation Apple phone, likely to be called the iPhone 6, appears to be positive. Apple is reportedly planning to start the production of its upcoming 5.5-inch phablet anytime soon and that model alongside the smaller version will be launched in September this year.
Now it is almost confirmed that Apple will launch two versions of the iPhone 6 to combat the Samsung Galaxy S5. And the latest report indicates that Apple has plans to add a jaw dropping 128GB of internal memory. However, the 128GB version will be reserved for the 5.5-inch model. Furthermore, the "big" iPhone model is expected to have optical image stabilization (OIS) feature, while the 4.7-inch variant will come with minor improvements to the camera module.
The alleged report comes from a Chinese site Wei Feng, who claims Deutsche Telecom as the source. The German network provider in the past had predicted that the Apple iPhone 6 might land in the retail shelves in September 19.
Just last week, Bloomberg reported that Apple's contract manufacturer in will begin producing the iPhone 6 models. The news agency cited unnamed "people familiar with the plans" of Apple. Around the same time, the Economic Daily News in Taiwan reported that Foxconn, the largest components manufacturer for Apple, is all set to hire 100,000 people to help manufacture the iPhone 6.
9to5Mac recently reported the Apple iPhone 6 will also come with a "barometer for super-accurate local weather."
"A barometer is a sensor commonly used for measuring altitude and the sensor is already commonly found in Android devices such as the Galaxy Nexus. A barometer sensor could be used by hikers, mountain climbers, bike riders, and enthusiasts who want accurate knowledge into their current altitude. Barometers, via air pressure data, also measure temperature and weather information", writes, 9to5Mac
