Although there's still a significant amount of time left until its official launch, the iPhone 6 continues to create the loudest buzz in the smartphone market at the moment.
While many tech enthusiasts were yearning for the device to make its presence into the general public on June 10 at Apple's WWDC, Phones Review reported on May 12 that kind of wishful thinking is simply unrealistic. Based on an interview that well-respected analyst Peter Misek conducted on Bloomberg TV, the tech site stated that the earliest possible release couldn't happen until September.
Misek explained that the device would need a production time period of between 60 to 90 days, which it has yet to begin. He also said that based on the info he's received from over 400 suppliers, the production of the smartphone isn't likely to start until late June or early July.
Although the iPhone 6 is the predicted title of Apple's next of technological kin, many other experts believe it could very well be coined the iPhone 5s. Both of the prospective model names have been used sporadically amid the slew of Internet chatter.
In terms of the future iPhone's specs, Misek stated that the phone could quite possibly come equipped with a fingerprint sensor, along with its improved processor and a 12-megapixel rear camera. However, he doesn't anticipate Apple putting out a larger screen until at least 2014.
