As Apple will likely debut their next-generation handset in two sizes on Tuesday, a new rumor claims the 4.7-inch model will be dubbed the “iPhone 6,” while the 5.5-inch model will be referred to as the “iPhone 6 Plus.” As in “Plus-Size Fashion.”
The alleged names for Apple’s next-generation handsets were reported on Monday by Japanese Apple blog Macotakara, which also said the lineup will come in the same colors and capacities as the current iPhone 5s lineup. Author “danbo” said he is unsure whether there will be a 128-gigabyte version of the “iPhone 6,” which has been rumored as of late.
If this rumor proves to be true, both versions of the iPhone 6 will be offered in capacities of 16, 32, and 64GB, with color options of space gray, silver and gold.
Apple’s expected redesign of the iPhone should see two new models, sized at 4.7-inches and 5.5-inches, and the larger screen sizes are expected to require the power/lock button to be moved form its current position, atop the iPhone, to a side spot, to allow turning the device on and off with one hand.
We’ll know for sure tomorrow just how authentic this rumor is, as Apple’s event at the Flint Center in Cupertino, CA, will kick off Tuesday at 10AM Pacific, 1PM Eastern Time.
The company is expected to debut its next-generation iPhone(s) at the event, and will also likely show off its wearable device, the “iWatch.” As usual, MacTrast will be covering the event as it happens. Join us, won’t you?
