Apple fans can now get ready to welcome the new iphone 6, scheduled to be launched sometime this fall.
This great phone is to be available in two sizes – a 4.7 inch version to be released by July and a larger, 5.5 inch version to be taken into production sometime in August.
Foxconn, the china based manufacturer for this phone would have the lion’s share in terms of production – a whopping 70% of the total shipments of the 4.7 inch version will hit the stores by 2015 as accounted for, by Digitimes.
These would start rolling out of ZhengZhou , where Foxconn’s production base is located, sometime in July.
The phone thus, may be widely available by September as per the current production schedule.
Although no concrete information is known about its tech specs yet, numerous reports have suggested the iPhone 6 will feature a refreshed, super slim look, much akin to the iPod touch.
The casing would also be different than the colorful, plastic bodied iPhone 5C and will be aluminium based. The same was leaked by MobileDirect.ro, hinting at what the phone would actually look like.
The empty spaces representing the ports and charging point for the phone gives a clearer picture.
NFC technology would be used as the key technology for mobile payment system. NXP has teamed up with Apple to design and manufacture the M7 chip that would be used on iPhone6.
Netherlands-based chip supplier NXP Semiconductors, is supposedly in a good shape to take part in the Apple Mobile payment ecosystem, despite the fact that it reported decreased revenue for its emerging ID unit, which includes its NFC mobile transactions business.
A license has been signed in agreement with Apple, sealing the M7 chip deal.
No matter what happens between within the semiconductor industry, the Apple NXP convenience marriage could very soon completely change the way most people pay for goods and exchange information – making iPhone6 a cringe worthy deal.
