iPhone 6s to Feature Thicker Body, 12MP Camera, Rose Gold Color Option, 7000 Series Aluminum?

Posted June 17, 2015 at 6:37pm by iClarified
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a new report detailing some of the expected features for the next generation iPhone 6s.

As we've heard before, Apple is predicted to bring Force Touch to the iPhone. This change may increase the width and height of the device by 0.15mm and make it 0.2mm thicker.

In addition, to resolve the bendability issue some users experienced with the iPhone 6, Apple is said to be using a stronger 7000 series aluminum.


Kuo also says there will be a new Rose Gold color option to match the Apple Watch and that the gold and gray versions will have their colors tweaked with the gold becoming yellower and gray becoming darker.

Finally, the iPhone 6s is predicted to get an improved 12MP camera. Kuo has an excellent track record when it comes to Apple predictions; however, there is still some time before Apple unveils the device this fall.

eh..? Does not really matter who copies who? (resale) VALUE and RELIABILITY - that's ALL that's legit. One can re-sell an Apple iPhone, up to FIVE TIMES OVER than any Samsung device...So there it goes - would you rely on something worth of your investment (money, time, effort..) ? NOW go make your choice.. enuff said!

As usual Apple doesn't COPY the others, they merely wait until the bugs are worked out and they can guarantee a quality experience. I'd welcome as 12mp camera, especially since the newer iPhone cameras take good enough pictures to warrant it. The HTC was a joke, offering 57 mp with a camera that couldn't support anything over a 5mp size. Essentially, you could only carry a handful of pictures before you ran out of space on your phone. 12mp isn't really a big leap, but I'm glad they waited until they got the camera working correctly first. I now get better photos with my iPhone than I do with my DSLR camera.

What are you talking about 57 megapixels with HTC? And of course Apple copies everybody. They steal directly from the jailbreak community.

Then explain this? If Apple steals from jailbreak community, how come their features are different from what they made? What did Apple copy from Sony? Hawai? Motorola? Blackberry? Panasonic? Nintendo? Atari? Canon? As you mentioned, everybody, so prove it!

You know that notification shade that pops down? Directly stolen from Android. What about using different keyboards? Directly stolen from Android. And they haven't even done a good job of implementing third party keyboards.

1. Since when has third party keyboards weren't implemented correctly? There was once a video showing a guy typing over 100 words a second with one of them? There has been reviews saying how iOS does some things better 2. Android is going to copy Apple pay and call it loop pay.

Samsung bought loop pay and loop pay is far better than Apple pay because you can use your phone with 90 percent of existing credit card machines. That means if a credit card machine doesn't have nfc to accept apple pay you can use your loop pay cellphone with that Megan etc reader. Apple pay can't do that. On android phone there is a video showing someone typing at 200 words per second far better than Apple.

1. Show me the video of the guy typing, 2. NYC is used to work with readers so it requires no other connection, plus if android version is so much better, is it secured depending on the phone you have? Does it lock away from hackers that easily like iOS can? Is it fast and easy without a scanner? Plus I don't even have to select a card to make a payment. It knows which one to use right away.

Using the mega pixels? Trying to copy Samsung? Aluminum? Trying to copy HTC?

Apple also copied the glass, antennas, speakers, and the handy headphone jack. The software is way more important than the hardware. Some people like AndRoid, and some people like iOS. What does "Using the mega pixels?" even mean???

Aluminum? iPhone had that way before Samsung even tried to mimicking the iPhone style and the touch display since 2007. 12mp? Just because it's using more doesn't mean it's completely a samsung camera, not to mention the parts aren't even close to theirs!

they're copying coke cola since they were the first to use aluminum for mass produced consumer goods that people loved

Does the aluminum look like a coke bottle for a phone? Does it have any liquid parts make of coke?
