iPhone 6 to sport 4.8-inch display, design ‘locked down’ internally : Report

While Apple’s next iPhone might still be far from hitting shelves, an analyst has claimed that the Cupertino based company has finalised much of the design of its next iPhone, believed to be dubbed iPhone 6.
Apple Insider cites analyst Timothy Arcuri from Cowen and Company, who says that Apple has finalised a 4.8-inch display for its alleged iPhone 6, in an attempt to counter the phablet competition in the global market.
Further, Arcuri, citing Apple’s supply chain, has revealed that apple is also planning to bring ” key software innovations ” with the next major iOS platform release. Acuri has claimed that the alleged iPhone 6 will come with Wi-Fi (802.11ac), which will be an upgrade to the current 802.11n found on the iPhone 5s.
The analyst speculates that the Cupertino-based company will use features such as iBeacon, Touch ID and Passbook in the next alleged iPhone to push new services with mobile payments.
Acuri also expects that Apple, following its launch schedule for iPhone devices, will announce the alleged iPhone 6 in September.
Contradicting to the current report, DisplaySearch said it will measure 4.7 inches diagonally with a 1,600×900-pixel resolution while well-respected Apple analyst Peter Misek said it will measure 4.8 inches. According to the Chinese analyst, Apple would launch two iPhone models, much like the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s announced last year; and it is believed that they would be sporting different screen sizes.
Apple is widely expected to launch the iPhone 6 this fall, though one recent report claimed that it will debut this summer at Apple’s annual WWDC conference instead.
