With only one month to go before Apple launch the iPhone 6, we already know almost everything. According to new rumors will the device get a NFC screen, instead of the rumored sapphire crystal (sapphire crystal is stronger than NFC). A faster Wi-Fi and enhanced A8 chip.
iPhone 6 screen without sapphireThe screens should be made of material that is not as strong as sapphire crystal, but slightly harder than Gorilla Glass that Apple is using in the current iPhones. Also, the source reports that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 may be obtained until a month later. That is still less than previous posts messages that it will be delayed about several months.
A8 chip with 2.0 GHzThe report goes on and say that the iPhone 6 will feature a dual-core A8 chip. The A8 chip provides a faster response and better graphics performance, especially useful for games. The chip will run at a frequency of 2.0 GHz. This is considerably faster than the A7 chip in the iPhone 5 running at 1.3 GHz per core.
Data up to 300Mbps and Touch ID improvementsThe iPhone 6 will also support faster LTE radio, which is capable of theoretical data speeds of up to 300Mbps. Also, Apple has been working on improvements for Touch ID, which should lead to faster identification of fingers, fewer errors and enhanced security.
Apple will announce the iPhone 6 on September 9.
