Apple is widely believed to be launching the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in September, followed by the bigger 5.5-inch variant towards the end of the year. Now a Chinese website China.com claims that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will launch on September 25. The publication further reveals that the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is likely to be called ‘iPhone Air’.
According to the publication, Apple will take the wraps off the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 on September 15, and the smartphone will hit the stores on September 25. While the launch time frame is consistent with precious reports, there are certain discrepancies. Chief among which is the date September 25, which falls on Thursday, and Apple has traditionally launched iPhones and other major products on a Friday.
The publication also claims that the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will be called the iPhone Air. While there is no evidence to back this claim, this isn’t the first time we are hearing of such a thing. Back in April, Taiwanese publication Commercial Times too had claimed that the bigger iPhone will get the Air moniker. The publication had however warned that it was not an official name, but something being used by suppliers.
From what we know so far, the iPhone 6 will feature some design changes including curved edges, a power button on the side rather on the right top-corner and elongated volume rocker instead of the circular volume buttons. Apple is also believed to be introducing features like optical image stabilization and higher storage capacities on the bigger iPhone 6.
Furthermore, China.com has also revealed the possible pricing of the iPhone 6, claiming that the 4.7-inch variant will cost around $850, while the 5.5-inch variant will be priced around $965.
