It goes without saying that many people are on the lookout as to what Apple has in store for the rest of this year, and the iPhone 6 would certainly be on many peoples’ minds, this I am sure. Whispers on the street point to Apple rolling out a couple of iPhones later this year – one with a 4.7” display, and finally, another one that breaches the 5” mark with a 5.5” display. Do bear in mind that these are just rumors, but KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, has already weighed in with his predictions. Kuo has had a decent track record in the past when it comes to Apple-related predictions, so hear what he has to saw about the sleep/wake button on the iPhone 6.
According to Kuo, apart from sporting different resolutions on both handsets, there will also be a change in the basic design, where the sleep/wake button will be changed from the top to the side on the iPhone 6. The reason behind this particular move is to make it easier for users to handle the handset – especially for those who tote it with a single hand. Apart from that, Kuo also noted that the bezel itself will be 10% to 20% narrower, while the iPhone 6 would measure anywhere between 6.5mm to 7.9mm thick, in comparison to the 7.6 mm case found on the iPhone 5s.
