KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is out with a new report on Apple's next generation iPhones. In total Kuo makes eleven predictions about the new iPhones, often referred to as the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

As we've already reported, the new smartphones are expected to offer Apple's Force Touch touch feature and utilize a new faster processor.

Interestingly, Kuo suggests that we could finally see sapphire crystal glass display covers and a new rose gold casing color to match the Apple Watch Edition.

Here's a look at all eleven predictions:

(1) Force Touch will be the biggest upgraded selling point, but also one of the main bottlenecks of the supply chain. Force Touch can enhance user experience due to more input methods and support of handwritten signatures, which is beneficial for expanding in the commercial market;
(2) Screen will remain at 4.7 and 5.5 inches, with resolution the same as existing models. There will be no new 4-inch model;
(3) There will be an additional casing color, rose gold, matching the rose gold Apple Watch Edition;
(4) The camera will have a pixel upgrade, likely to 12 MP;
(5) One microphone will be added near the speaker to enhance voice quality;
(6) The A9 processor with upgraded 2GB LPDDR4 will be adopted;
(7) The bending issue will be improved by using different casing materials and internal mechanical design changes;
(8) If drop test issues can be resolved, the 5.5-inch model will have a limited number of units with sapphire cover lens;
(9) The recognition rate of Touch ID will be improved further in a bid to promote Apple Pay;
(10) Gesture control support; and
(11) It’s expected that mass production will start in mid-to-late August. Total shipments will be 80-90mn in 2015, with a 2:1 ratio of 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models.

Kuo expects Apple to ship a total of 80-90 million iPhones this year.
