The smartphone world is completely flooded with all kinds of various high-end smartphones from various brands like HTC One, Galaxy S4, and Xperia Z. It has been observed that Apple has been consistently launching a new iPhone model after a gap every 11 months. It was an exception to see the iPhone 4S coming out 15 months after iPhone 4. Apple is expected to roll out two new models of iPhone namely the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6.
Analysts are of the view that the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 are both going to be out in the market by September 2013. Still it is not clear whether Apple come out with iPhone 5S or directly release the iPhone 6 without releasing the iPhone 5S edition.
The image we have got here for you has come from sources that were able to gain leaked info of forthcoming phones from one of the leading cellular providers in UK. It shows that iPhone 6 which supports 4G LTE will hit the stands this year. Since it is only an image from an unconfirmed source, we feel the image may not really mean much.
On the contrary, analysts are feeling that Apple will wait for its competitors to release more high-end phones this year and then roll competitive iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 in 2014. We have got something from the Apple camp for you. Apple has joined hands with Japan based Sharp for LCD panels for its next version of iPhone. However, production should have started in March this year. Because of the production related problems Apple is facing, the release of the next gen iPhone is not going to happen any time this year. Even Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, has confirmed that there is no plan to release a newer edition of iPhone before the end of this year.
According to the recent rumors, the iPhone 6 will feature IGZO display from Sharp, A7 quad-core CPU, iOS 7, 12GB internal memory, 13MP rear camera, 4G RAM, and long-lasting battery. On the other hand, the iPhone 5S is expected to run on dual-core CPU and 8MP cam or may be a 12MP camera. There is also a rumor that the iPhone 5S will come in various colors as well as it is going to available with three different screen sizes. The production related issues that Apple is facing at the moment is what delaying the release of the next gen iPhone. We hope that in 2014 we will get to lay hands on both the rumored iPhones.
