How many times have we been here before?
After months of relentless drumbeat (surrounding the latest iteration of Apple’s most successful product — yes, the iPhone 6), we are almost there. In a few hours, Apple will be presenting its newest line of products, which is expected to include the iPhone 6.
Naturally, the biggest issue of all this buildup is how the iPhone 6 will look like. I think practically everybody now knows that there will be two versions — one with a 4.7-inch srceen and another with a 5.5-inch screen. Certainly, there will be new features (e.g., new mobile payment system [NFC], Healthkit, larger memory, internal barometer), and for the 5.5-inch version (Sapphire screen?) some expect a huge price increase, too.
There’s some unconfirmed buzz that the 4.7″ phone will known simply as the iPhone 6, while the 5.5″ variant will be called the iPhone 6 Plus.
At this stage, the most crucial question is, which of the those countless rumors will hit the mark with 100% (or at least, the highest) accuracy?
The official launching of these new Apple products will take place at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts (Cupertino, CA), and will be live-streamed and covered by most industry watchers on Sept. 9.
By the way, for those of you who would like to make a massive, ostentatious statement with your new iPhone 6, it might interest you to know that you can even pre-order an iPhone 6 with a pink diamond for a breath-stealing price of $48.5 million (appropriately called Falcon luxury iPhone 6).
