Apple's next-gen 'iPhone 6s' rumoured to come with edge-to-edge display, 2GB RAM

Apple's next-gen 'iPhone 6s' rumoured to come with edge-to-edge display, 2GB RAM

The next-gen iPhone is expected to be named either iPhone 6S,iPhone 6C (a cheaper version of the 6S), or iPhone 7.

New Delhi: The rumour mill is abuzz with which next-gen iPhone will Apple come out with; whether the next flagship device will be called an iPhone 6s, iPhone 6c or iPhone 7, and if it will have dramatic design updates.

The first thing that would leave anyone wondering is the name of the next handset. Keeping in tune with its current tradition, the next phone could either be iPhone 6s and iPhone 6c (a cheaper version of the 6s). However, some are also betting for the name-iPhone 7 .

The iPhone 7, or the next-gen iPhone is expected to run the iOS 9, which is still in the testing pipeline and would make to the consumers' hands soon. The OS will include improved parental controls, group FaceTime calls and split-screen app multitasking.

The screen-size is another topic debated upon, possibly due to the iPhone 6 Plus's large display at 5.5-inch which didn't go down too well with an average consumer. Rumours have pointed to not one, but three handsets with varying display sizes in 2015.

An updated iPhone 5s with a 4-inch screen( which could be named the iPhone 6c); a 4.7-inch update of the iPhone 6 (iPhone 6s); and a new phablet, based on the iPhone 6 Plus, with a 5.5-inch screen(the iPhone 7), a MacWorld report analysed.

Other specs rumoured suggest to an HD display; camera with DSLR-quality results; A9 chip set; 2GB RAM and a touch sensitive display technology, Force Technology, which is already present in its Apple Watch.

The next iPhone is also expected to be able to charge wirelessly and have a thinner and lighter design. The Touch-ID will be built-into the screen instead of the home button and could sport Gorilla Glass.

It is also said that its chassis will be built out of liquidmetal which is considered more durable than aluminium and a sans-bezel edge-to-edge-display.

The rumoured device-in-the-making could be unwrapped in September, the standard time when Apple chooses to unveil most of its new handsets.
