12 May

Apple Inc. releases its latest iPhones every September. The upcoming model for this September is believed to be the iPhone 6s, unless there is a surprise. There has been information regarding the phone circulating in the industry. According to KGI Securities’ latest report, the iPhone 6s will have multiple upgraded features, including an improved processor and camera. It will also come with improved user interaction features.

The KGI report forecasts that the iPhone 6s will come with Apple’s A9 processor, 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM and a 12MP rear camera. For the exterior design, the phone will come in two sizes, 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, while display resolution is expected to stay the same. Apple is reportedly not going to introduce a 4-inch iPhone 6s. Meanwhile, depending on production capacity and yield rate, there may be a 5.5-inch limited edition of the new phone with a sapphire screen.

According to the KGI report, the new iPhone 6s will have several adjustments in terms of structural design and materials in order to increase strength. In addition to the color choices of black, silver and gold, Apple will add a rose gold option, same with the 18-Karat rose gold Apple Watch. In terms of software system, Force Touch,  which enhances touch input and enables handwriting, will be a major selling point in the new iPhone. Apple is also expected to improve the Touch ID sensor and add a new hand gesture control function.

The new iPhone is currently expected to enter the mass production phase in late August 2015. Shipments in 2015 are estimated between 80 million and 90 million units, with a 2:1 ratio for the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions.
