Apple’s iPhone 5, the most hyped mobile phone in history, has been popular since it was announced and available in September. The Cupertino, Calif.-based computer company sold 26.9 million iPhone units in business Q4 2012 and now it is is working on the upcoming the next iPhone, presumably called “iPhone 6.” It is reported that Apple will start trial production of this new device in December with small initial production volumes, around 50,000 to 100,000 phones. The new model, which will be also widely known as the iPhone 5S rather than go for the predictable name of iPhone 6, is expected to be released in the middle of 2013 with some new features.
First of all, the upcoming handset could sport a seamless design where none of the components like sensors and the camera, can be seen on the smartphone. Apple plans to hide the external facing components using a polymer-dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) window, a surface with the ability to change opacity. The iPhone 6’s screen could also get this treatment, letting Apple hide things including a fingerprint scanner and iris sensor beneath it. Besides, Apple is working on “non-touch” wireless charging technologies, which could in theory make it into the rumoured iPhone 6. The iPhone 5 manufacturer’s proposed technology may work across distances of up to 1 meter, using near-field magnetic resonance (NFMR) to recharge devices without any actual contact. Additionally, Apple have patented sonar as a means of proximity detection for the already anticipated iPhone 6. It means that the new handset could use passive sonar to listen to sound waves bouncing off objects. Apart from above features, the iPhone 6 is expected to have a smart bezel that moves controls to the edge of the screen. It means that it's possible to use the smartphone without obscuring the display with your fingers.
Apple’s iPhone 6 is expected to release in June 2013 with a seamless design which may hide external-facing components such as the camera and flash from view using a polymer-dispersed liquid crystal window.
The iPhone 6 will have flexible displays for easier holding and typing as well as the highly-advanced tactile screen that creates buttons when needed.
In the iPhone 6, Apple can skip the dual-core A6X and go straight to the A7, which will possibly be quad-core CPU and quad-core graphics.
The iPhone 6 may be designed with an integral projector, a feature already making its way to rival devices.
