The iPhone 6 has been announced to launch with a 32 GB and 64 GB options. This indicates that Apple may not release a 16 GB iPhone 6 and will maybe be looking at a 128 GB version instead. However, rumours have been circling that if a 128 GB variant is released, it will only be exclusive to the 5.5 inch sized iPhone 6.
The Chinese site, Wei Feng explains that the storage size will create a huge gap between the 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch versions. It states that a user will gain a pure ‘phablet’ experience if opting for the bigger storage size which would allow a range of data to be saved in the phone. A 128 GB version of the iPhone 6 would be similar to the iPad models which allow exact same storage size.
If however, the 128 GB is produced for only the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 and the 16 GB is scraped for the 4.7 inch version, this would leave the smaller of the two with only two variants in storage space this time. For the American company, this would break the usual routine of releasing three variants storage size.
Along with a better processor and camera, the iPhone 6 may also feature improved optical image stabilization (OIS) that allows users to take clearer images while moving. Apple has been working on their own version of the OIS which is called electronic image stabilization (EIS) for the iPhone 6. However, once again reports say that this feature will only be available for the 5.5 inch version of the iPhone 6.
The 5.5 inch iPhone 6 seems to be getting a better spec list compared to the 4.7 inch. But seeing as Apple will be expected to place a higher price on the larger of the two, it’s not surprising that the company is looking to differentiate between both devices. If the dollar amount is going to be an extra zero or two, users will be expecting to get their penny’s worth.
