Best Things Come to Those Who Wait! 5.5″ iPhone 6 to be More Powerful than 4.7″ iPhone 6
Not sure if you believe on the bigger is better notion but if you do, 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is certainly worth the wait for. The larger iPhone 6 albeit is seeing some delays in production and allegedly will be launched at a later date this year or earlier next year. However, if the rumors and latest analysis is to be believed, the larger iPhone 6 will feature a much powerful processor than that of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6.
More powerful 5.5-inch iPhone 6:
Recent analyst reports indicates that the processor features in the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will be more powerful than the one Apple is using in the smaller 4.7-inch variant. This report comes from analyst Timothy Arcuri of Cowen & Co., who suggests that it is much possible than the larger iPhone 6 will feature a much powerful processor citing Asian supply chain checks.
The details on the processors is lacking so far, however, it is being assumed that the a stronger processor will support a larger array of GPUs and could possible be manufactured at different fabrication plants. There is also speculation that Apple could mimic the processing units tech of iPad models. While both the iPad Air and the Retina iPad Mini use A7 chip, the Air is clocked at 1.39 GHz and the Mini at 1.29 GHz.
The same could be a possibility in the case of both the iPhone 6 variants too. Instead of fitting in different chips, Cupertino could fit A8 in both the iPhone 6 models and clock the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 at a higher rate. Report also claims that iPhone 6 variants could use different touch modules. We hope to see more details in terms of processing powers of the expected iPhone 6 variants. However, so far it looks like Apple seems to be projecting the larger iPhone 6 as a better and more powerful model. This actually justifies the earlier indications of a higher price tag of the larger iPhone 6.
The larger, 5.5-inch iPhone 6 has been rumored to sport a few key features that will set it apart from the standard model. Phablet iPhone is expected to feature the more durable and expensive Sapphire glass, better camera with optical image stabilization module and will be offered with bigger storage options.
