Hi friends, I read on Reuters.com that Apple is to unveil iPhone 6 in August of this year, which is earlier than expected.
According to the article, a 4.7-inch screen version of the iPhone 6 will reach stores in August, the Economic Daily News reported without specifying which markets would receive the phone first.
A 5.5-inch or 5.6-inch model will be released in September, as the iPhone 5 series was previously.
People involved in the supply chain had earlier confirmed to Reuters that there will be a 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 and a 5.5-inch version.
Together, the Economic Daily News said 80 million iPhone 6 handsets would be produced this year.
Industry watchers have said increasing the iPhone’s screen size from 4 inches would help Apple regain market share from competitors such as Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, who they say have responded to consumer desire for more screen size.
What’s you take on screen size? Usually as a human race is concerned, you always hear that bigger is better. I have a Samsung Galaxy SIII and and iPhone 5 and to be honest I just like the feel of the iPhone 5 compared to the Samsung – but that’s just one man’s opinion.
I don’t feel “neglected” or that I’m “missing out” with the smaller iPhone screen; but I’m sure that a “large” iPhone would sell like hotcakes. Everyone loves a hotcake without discrimination, right?!?
Well, rest assured that we here at Mission Repair are diligently working on obtaining iPhone 6 screens just as soon as humanly possible- because I already know that the first day they come out…we will get a call for a repair. It happens every time.
So stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted on the iPhone 6 release later this year. Until then, you can browse our iPhone repair section on our website if you’re interested. Have a great day!
