Each iPhone launch sets new sales records. So it’s hardly a reach to predict that the launch of the next iPhone, expected in September, will be big.
Wall Street and Apple fans are starting to salivate over the idea.
“I’m expecting it to be huge with a capital ‘H,'” Avi Greengart, a research director at Current Analysis, said of the new phone, which will likely be called the iPhone 6 and be available in two larger screen sizes.
Apple fans have been looking over at the big, beautiful screens of Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy S5 for a long while now. And while the continued sales success of the iPhone shows many are satisfied with what they’ve got, there is little doubt many are salivating at the prospect that next month’s iPhone 6 announcement will at last bring larger displays to Apple’s flagship product. Indeed, rumors from the supply chain suggest the move to 4.7 and 5.5-inch screens will generate so much demand that Apple could sell 70-80 million before the year is out. But could it be possible that the killer feature of the iPhone 6 isn’t the display itself, but something behind it? Yes, I’m talking about the battery.
Yes, folks, celebrity gossip and sometimes hard-ish news site TMZ got its hands on photos of what looks like an Apple iPhone 6.
On Friday, the site, best known for breaking celebrity news, waded deep into nerd culture and unveiled a collection of images that may be of the rumored 5.5-inch (or 4.7-inch, it’s hard to tell) iPhone 6.
