Full IPhone 6 Specs Leak.... sort of. Details Vague

iwatch-concept.jpg

Tek websites around the world, yours excluded, have been posting and reposting alleged iPhone six specifications  were really taking much interest in the actual content itself.  This of course you leads to the usual outcries of yet another goal and uninspiring iPhone. But the leaks themselves are interesting only for the lack of actual details. When you take the time to actually delve into this allege it specification leak your say that's it's pretty much a cut and paste version of the iPhone 5s specifications along with some rumours to bump up the spec.

It took me all of about two seconds to find out that the specifications have been formatted in the style of the very popular website GSM-Arena.com which strikes me as being a little odd to start with.

It's pretty much a given that there will be a new CPU, new GPU and possibly a new coprocessor but again details are scant to non-existent..

For the sake of ease I’ve filled in the specifications which differ from the iPhone 5S.  You can check out our 25 iPhone Rumoured Features and tick off whats been announced if and when they do.

4.90 H x 2.33 W x 0.35 D inches 4.87 H x 2.31 W x 0.30 D inches 5.41 H x 2.64 W x 0.28 D inches

Unsurprisingly there was no information about pricing but rumours have it the iPhone is due for another hundred dollar price increase due to the new size that are going to be released.

Personally I think prices are going to stay the same as Apple have already prepared us to pay more for a phone with the release of the iPhone 5s.

Processor And Memory

iPhone 5C

iPhone 5S

iPhone 6

Processor

Apple A6 Apple A7 Dual-core 2

Coprocessor

None Apple M7 motion ???

Graphics Card

PowerVR SGX543MP3 PowerVR G6430 ???

Built-in Memory

1 GB 1 GB 2 GB

Again even more vagueness. It's fairly safe to assume that there will be a new processor and it should be faster but will it stick to dual core or take a significant upgrade to the quad core route?  The lack of an official part numbers shows that Apple really has doubled down on secrecy where it counts.

Battery And Power

Video Playback

Up to 10 hours Up to 10 hours

Audio Playback

Up to 40 hours Up to 40 hours

Once again this so-called parts league doesn't use any real specific information. Of course the battery is going to be bigger to power the purported new screen sizes and I would expect the combination of software and hardware being optimised for each other to yield a significant increase in battery life.

Check back shortly as we will update all the specifications as Apple announces them
