We’re again hearing murmurs that the iPhone 6 will arrive in June. As other recent reports have suggested, this one says there will be two different sizes offered. Don’t forget that last year we heard that the iPhone 6 would be coming in June of that year too. And we ended up with the iPhone 5S arriving in September instead.
But what’s particularly interesting about this year’s speculation of a June iPhone 6 release is a report from April 2013 which suggests that a big-screen iPhone 6 would arrive in June 2014.
Chinese website says June launch for iPhone 6
This latest rumor comes from the Chinese website QQ Tech and was reported by Apple Insider. The rumor comes from Chinese analyst Sun Changxu, who believes production for the iPhone 6 could be ramping up as early as May. She also suggests that the handset will debut at Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s annual Worldwide Developers’ Conference (WWDC) in June.
As others have said, she believes the iPhone 6 will have a 4.7-inch screen, however, she thinks it will have a resolution of 1136 by 640. She also suggests that there will be a 5.7-inch iPhone with an even higher resolution as well. Last week, DisplaySearch predicted that Apple will use a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1920 by 1080.
Speculation about the iWatch still swirling
In addition to the rumors about the iPhone 6, Apple Insider also reported on speculation about the rumored iWatch. South Korean website Digital Daily reported initially that LG Electronics Inc (KRX:066570) had won an exclusive contract to manufacture the screens for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s smart watch. The article claimed that the device would have a 1.52-inch flexible P-OLED display and that production for it would start in the second half of this year. LG was reported as having a goal of producing 2 million screens in the initial run.
That report was pulled from the Korean website, although G for Games managed to locate a cached copy of it.
