A new leak claims that the iPhone 6 could get a 128GB storage variant, while the 32GB variant is likely to be replaced by the 64GB variant, GSMArena reports. Also Read - Beware!

As mentioned above, the 32GB variant seems to have been replaced by the 64GB variant. Also Read - iPhone selling in LG stores? Apple is apparently in talks for a new deal
The document further reveals that the 16GB flash chips will be manufactured by Toshiba and Hynix, while the 64GB chips by Scandisk and Hynix. The 128GB variant will no doubt be pricier than the rest and hence is only being manufactured by Toshiba (mostly in limited quantities). Not surprisingly, there is currently no word on the pricing of the different iPhone 6 variants.
Currently, Apple s flagship iPhones are only available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants, while the entry-level iPhones are available in 8GB variants too. Earlier this year however, Apple also launched an 8GB variant of the iPhone 5C in India priced at Rs 37,500. The variant is now available for as low as Rs 29,500 under buyback scheme.
