The time is finally here (we think) that the iPhone will finally get a larger screen than the 3.5″ and 4″ we’ve been forced to use for many years. Rumors at this point speculate that the phone will be released in 2 sizes: 4.7″ and 5.5″. There’s also rumors that the 5.5″ will demand a $100 price premium over the smaller version and will have some features above and beyond the 4.7″. I don’t even need to hold both phones to know which one I want. I briefly owned an LG Optimus Pro G for about a week and absolutely loved the 5.5″ screen on it. The only problem was it was Android and I’m not a fan.
I hate to say I have dream specs for something like a phone, however I would like to see the following on the iPhone 6:
- 5.5″ screen running @ 1080p
- Kill the 16gb option. We’re beyond 16gb. Make them 32gb, 64gb and 128gb. I’ll be on board for the 128gb version.
- A8 processor
- Fingerprint sensor along with other sensors for tracking things such as pulse, etc.
That’s pretty much it. Make the iPhone 6 have those and I’ll love it. There’s been a lot of mockup images floating around and most of them show the phone being very thin with rounded bezels made out of aluminum. I like it!
The only other request I have is for Magpul (www.magpul.com) to produce their awesome cases for the 6.
