Rumour has it that Samsung is planning to lift the lid on the Galaxy Note 5 earlier than expected in July and a late July release. The phablet was expected to be unveiled in September, just like the Note 4. Too early? Maybe, but it seems Samsung may have a good reason for introducing its next phablet earlier than expected. According to a report, healthy component yield could lead to an August iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus release (iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus shown below).
The news comes to us courtesy of Chinese-speaking UDN (1 & 2). It reports that Apple’s supply chain has been able to produce components for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus with healthy yield, allowing the Cupertino firm to release its next iPhones in August. Additionally, Apple is said to be ordering components in record quantities, indicating that it expects its next iPhones to sell like hotcakes.
According to previous reports, the next iPhones will sport Force Touch (a feature only found on the Apple Watch), a 4.7-inch screen for the iPhone 6S, a 5.5-inch screen for the iPhone 6S Plus, a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, Apple’s A9 chip, and 2 GB of LPDDR4 RAM. Due to the “Bendgate” fiasco, Apple is said to use Series 7000 aluminum on its next iPhones, which 60% stronger.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take this with a pinch of salt.
