WSJ: no new plastic iPhone in 2014, but Apple should launch two large-screen iPhone 6 models33
Relying on info obtained from undisclosed sources familiar with the matter, WSJ says that Apple is preparing two new iPhone models for the second half of 2014. One of them should have a display of at least 4.5 inches, while the other model’s display will measure at least 5 inches. Both devices will have metal casings, and it’s believed that Apple no longer plans to make plastic iPhones (like the 5C model released last year).
It’s said that the smaller new iPhone - the one with a 4.5+ inch screen - is “being prepared for mass production” as we speak, while the larger, 5+ inch model is still in its initial development stages.
It remains to be seen if Apple will launch its next-generation smartphones under the “iPhone 6” name, as almost everyone is expecting. That would be the logical thing to do, right?
