Rumor: Apple's 5.5-inch iPhone 6 to have OIS, the 4.7-inch model might lack the feature
Apple is expected to announce two new iPhones this September, one sporting a 4.7-inch display, and a larger model with a 5.5-inch screen - both possibly called iPhone 6. While the two handsets will obviously be different first and foremost because of their size, other features might also differentiate them.

According to Apple Insider, which reportedly obtained a research note from KGI Securities, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that only the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will use optical image stabilization (OIS) for its rear camera. Apparently, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model will feature a “middle-mount open-loop voice coil motor” instead, which should be an upgraded mechanism of the one found inside the iPhone 5s. It’s said that Apple is forced to use OIS on only one of its new iPhones because of supply constraints.

If previous rumors are to be believed, both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 handsets could have 10MP rear cameras.

What you’re seeing below are 5.5-inch and 4.7-inch iPhone 6 dummy units (which may, or may not look like the real devices that Apple will unveil later this year).
