Early days to be sure, but the Apple rumor mill has been activated in earnest around the forthcoming offerings. What offerings, you deign to ask? Multiple iPhones and more! Sonny Dickson, who has offered various details about unreleased Apple devices in the past including images, now suggests the iPhone 6 will be extremely thin and that it will have an even faster processor than its predecessor. Not detailed enough, let’s here more:
Dickson said on Twitter that the iPhone 6 will be just 0.22 inches thick (or around 5.58 millimeters), and that it will pack an Ultra-Retina screen with a pixel density of 389 pixels per inch (ppi). He also said the phone will pack an A8 processor clocked at 2.6GHz. “These specs could be the real thing,” Dickson added, without specifying his source or revealing other details about the handset. PhoneArena reports that a 4.7-inch display at 389 ppi would have a resolution between 720p (HD) and 1080p (Full HD). A recent report from Macotakara, a source that has been accurate with some previous Apple-related leaks, said the iPhone 6 will have a design inspired from the iPhone 5c and the seventh-generation iPod nano, adding that the new iPhone may be just 7mm thick.
For comparison, the iPhone 5s has a 4-inch display with 1136 x 640-pixel resolution and 326 ppi, a 64-bit A7 processor clocked at 1.4GHz and an M7 motion coprocessor. It’s already incredibly thin at 0.30 inches (7.6 millimeters) thick, so a 0.22-inch iPhone would be insanely thin. Some have argued that at some point you’ve got diminishing return their, but I’ll take a thinner phone and worry about how it feels in the hand second (unless it’s literally razor sharp)
