The iPhone 6 will be Apple’s latest iPhone and if Apple keeps to their timing and schedule, we can expect them to release the handset in the later part of the year. As it stands there has been several rumors floating about regarding its specs, and for the most part it points to the phone being larger than its predecessor, the iPhone 5s. A larger screen would make sense and it is also what Apple users have been clamoring for so it would not be a stretch of the imagination to think that particular rumor is true.
Earlier we had reported that an analyst had suggested that the iPhone 6 could pack several new sensors, like a temperature, atmospheric pressure, and humidity sensors, and now thanks to a tweet by Australian blogger, Sonny Dickson, additional specs of the iPhone 6 have been revealed.
For those unfamiliar with Dickson, he has in the past been pretty instrumental in providing photos of leaked iPhone components. In fact he published a slew of iPhone 5c photos even before the phone had been announced, so safe to say that he has managed to build up a pretty solid reputation when it comes to leaking iPhone-related information.
That being said, according to Dickson, the upcoming iPhone 6 is said to be thinner than ever and will measure at 0.22-inches thin. It is also expected to pack an “Ultra Retina” display with a pixel density of 389ppi. This is a step up over the iPhone 5s’ display which has a pixel density of around 326ppi, but will pale in comparison to the Samsung Galaxy S5 which has a pixel density of around 432ppi.
We’re not sure if this means that Apple will be increasing the resolution of the iPhone 6 or increasing its display size and its resolution as these were details that Dickson had left out. He also asserts that the iPhone 6 will pack an A8 chipset clocked at 2.6GHz. Dickson also claims that the specs he revealed are the real deal, and like we said before, he has been pretty spot on when it comes to Apple rumors, so there is a chance he could be right on the money. However as is the case with most rumors, it should be treated with a degree of skepticism but what do you guys think? Could these be the “real” iPhone 6 specs?
