iPhone 6 to Feature NFC, Wireless Charging, Faster LTE, Much Bigger Screen?

The iPhone 6 will reportedly include support for near field communication (NFC), wireless charging, a faster LTE radio, and a much bigger screen, according to VentureBeat.

A source 'close to the situation' told the site that the iPhone 6 is nearing completion and is now being tested for durability, speed, and network performance.

Although Apple held back on NFC in the past, the company is reportedly ready to pull the trigger now. It's unclear if Apple aligned itself with the ISIS wireless payments standard or whether it will introduce its own mobile payments standard.

While the current iPhone contains a Category 4 LTE radio capable of speeds up to 150 Mbps, the new iPhone 6 is said to contain a Category 6 LTE radio which is capable of speeds up to 300 Mbps.

Apple is also planning to add wireless charging capabilities to the iPhone 6. There are two main competing standards, the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) and the Power Matters Alliance (PMA). Recently, they agreed to make sure that if a device works on one standard, that it will work on the other. Apple is apparently ready to commit to a standard; however, no word yet on which one it is. The source said that the iPhone 6 includes a surface under the shell that connects to an inductive charging surface for energy transfer.

Finally, as widely expected, the iPhone 6 is said to feature a significantly larger screen and a smaller bezel than previous devices.

It may utilize a pixel-tripling mode (3x):

This would triple the “base resolution” of 568 x 320 (1,136 x 640 is twice this), resulting in a 1,704 x 960 resolution for the Apple iPhone 6. This would essentially increase the current resolution of 1,136 x 640 by 150 percent, and would keep the same 16:9 screen ratio found on the iPhone 5, 5s, and 5c. On a possible 4.7-inch screen, the ppi would be 416; on a 5.5-inch, 356 ppi.

Earlier today, several photos of what allegedly is the rear shell of the new smartphone leaked online. You can check them out here.

While these features are said to be part of the current iPhone 6 design, Apple could make last minute changes before launch. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

it has come to pass that android (samsung, htc etc.) users are more annoying than apple users. Amazing.

It's interesting. I am feeling this too. I know both side (Apple and Android OS) have some annoying users who like to trash others. I don't know why it has to be like that. I use and prefer iPhone. But I do see some nice feature on some Android phones that I would like to be implemented to future iOS. Other people might use other platform that fit their needs. I think both system have their good and bad. It's funny that some like to trash others.

The only reasons it like this is because of android jealousy all from samshit, it's the reason we have all these ads showing off their feelings, it's all their plan. If anyone always and is doing trash talks, it's the sTrolls because they have nothing better to do than visit a site of something they're against.

I think some are just cocky. Since some of the features might already been on some Android phone, they think Apple is copying. To me, I want a better performance phone. I think CPU is an excellent example. 5S is still dual core but still has better performance than most quad-core mobile phone. Quality is better than quantity.....

I really agree with that, but I think you're all off on the reasoning. Its a bit more confusing than that. See what it really is, is that Apple has a reputation for being better and premium compared to pretty much anything. And Android and Windows users pick up on that and don't much like it, because they picked them up for whatever reason, and they feel like this reputation of apple being better is just a different way of saying everything else is shit, and they disagree. They then become over eager to prove themselves, that their choice is just as valid as ours, but because it was their idea of the reputation that snuffed them originally, they can't win and become frustrated, continually feeling as if their opinion is being conceitedly dismissed, when it's really not. So they become angry and decide to start trashing the other side, which was what, in the beginning was what kind of snuffed them in the first place, although it was just in their head at the time. Moving on, the reason they get so riled whenever they think apple is stealing a feature from android is because of all that, they gain an inferiority complex, so whenever apple gets a similar feature, they think apple is taking an advantage they have had. They'll just go on believing that every apple user thinks that their choice is wrong and that they should be using apple because it's just better, regardless of what they're actually saying. They should just realize that they're just operating systems, and that any choice is a valid choice, its not as if one can logically be proved to be better, its a subjective opinion that nobody can be faulted for.
