Apple leak promises the company’s next iPhone will open up a brand new world for users with features such as force touch, 12MP camera and an upgraded processor.
With less than half a year to go before Apple’s usual launching date, September, accidental leaks and expert opinions are piling on top of each other, bringing in information meant to introduce the brand’s fans to what they can expect once the products hit stores and how to get the most out of them.
One of the newest and most anticipated upgrades is the force touch. It’s a feature that will monitor the area where the finger touches the screen and measure how much pressure you’re applying in order to enrich the user experience. The device responds differently, depending on how much pressure you apply, not unlike a graphic tablet.
It shares the same pressure sensitive display as the Apple Watch and the new MacBook trackpads, and will enable hand written signatures on the phone’s digital screen, which could prove to be a giant success in the commercial market.
Said success could however end up being a huge inconvenience as it would most likely make it hard for the company to match their supply demands without any delays.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a KGI Securities analyst known for coming up with accurate forecasts about Apple Inc’s upcoming products, believes that the force touch technology will be the primary selling point of the iPhone 6S.
He also predicts that the new iPhone will benefit from the latest A9 processor supported by 2GB of RAM, providing the device more power and speed than any iPhone before it.
A microphone will be attached next to the speaker to improve voice quality, and the phone’s rear camera will be upgraded to 12MP (double than what t has now). He does not make any predictions about the phone’s front camera.
When it comes to the design of the iPhone, Kuo says the screen size will most likely remain at 4.7 and 5.5 inches, but that the new smartphone case could be available in rose gold, with sapphire crystal display cover lenses.
The case option is a highly plausible one as it would match the Apple watch’s rose gold edition and could potential introduce the brand to a new segment of consumers infatuated with fashion. The rose gold iPhone will most likely be made out of solid gold, not just colored rose gold, and will cost about $10.000.
If just 1 percent of Apple fans buy a $10.000 iPhone, the company may bring in as much as $6 billion extra revenue per quarter.
The body of the device will be made out of a more durable material and coupled with internal mechanical design changes to prevent the bending issues encountered in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
Kuo expects mass production of the devices to start somewhere in mid-to-late August, with total shipments near the range of 80 and 90 million units throughout 2015.
