We might see the next iPhone models - Apple has for a while been rumoured to be making 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants of the iPhone - being offered in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage variants, hinting a new report from China. In the meanwhile, a set of alleged iPhone 6
dummy model videos has made their way to the Web
Feng, a Chinese blog, cites sources familiar with Apple's supply chain and claims that the company's alleged 5.5-inch iPhone 6 variant will feature a 128GB storage variant. The report further claims that the 128GB storage variant will be limited to the bigger variant of the rumoured iPhone 6, and the alleged 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will offer the conventional 64GB as its maximum storage variant.
The move is said to be an attempt of Apple to differentiate the anticipated 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model (phablet) from other phones in the company's line-up. However, there is still no word on whether the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone will offer the minimum 16GB storage. If the 16GB variant is dumped by Apple, then the unannounced 4.7-inch iPhone 6 might be unveiled with just two storage variants - 32GB and 64GB.
On Wednesday, in-line with the current claims, a report indicated that Apple might dump the 16GB storage version for its next generation.
An earlier report citing a research note from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also suggested that the alleged 5.5-inch iPhone 6 would sport OIS (optical image stabilisation) for the rear camera. The report further claimed that the alleged 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will not come with OIS.
In addition, two new YouTube videos have surfaced on the Internet showing the dummy iPhone 6 - 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models in full glory. One of the videos purportedly shows the rear panel of both the rumoured iPhone 6 models featuring the Apple logo.
Meanwhile, the other alleged iPhone 6 video shows both the models sporting slim bezels and the home button placed below the display. The smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model appears to include a gold-coloured rim around the home button, similar to the one found on the iPhone 5s (Pictures). The video also compares the bigger alleged iPhone 6 with 5.5-inch display with the LG G3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (Review | Pictures).
A recent report claimed that Apple's next iPhone would hit shelves on September 19. The Cupertino-based company has been rumoured to be testing a higher screen resolution of 960x1704 pixels on at least one of the two iPhone models likely to debut this year.
We remind readers however, that nothing is official yet, and that all such leaks must be taken with a pinch of salt.
