iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were unveiled today at the special event held by Apple at Cupertino. It will become available on the market on September 19th and until then we can accustom ourselves better with the device. Design-wise, it is much larger and rounder than the former incarnations of the seventh and lesser generations of iPhone, but other than that, not many apparent changes can be seen.
iPhone 6’s price will start from $199 on a two year contract whereas the phablet-sized iPhone 6 Plus will have a price starting from $299 on contract.
Apple seems to have drifted apart from the squared-off design of its previous model and it finally opted for a more curved and rounded edge with the eight generation of phones. iPhone 6 is 6.9 mm thick whereas the 6 Plus is a tad thicker, at 7.1 mm, but still thinner than the iPhone 5S and its robust 7.6mm.
The new Apple smartphone has a 4.7” LED back-lit display running at 1334x750p (326 ppi) dubbed the Retina HD display that seems small and lackluster when opposed to the iPhone 6 Plus and its 5.5” full HD 1920 x 1080p (401 ppi) screen.
Both devices have A8 64-bit second generation processors paired with M8 new-generation motion coprocessors and 1 GB of RAM (only?) each.
When it comes to selfies and photos, the phone offers an 8MP iSight lens sensor that can shoot videos at HD resolution in Slo-mo as well. The front-facing FaceTime camera is HD now and allows in up to 80% more light. The Plus phablet however may sport a 13 MP primary camera, but most reports show it will have the same 8 MP sensor as the iPhone 6.
Both iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will have CAT 4 LTE, offering speeds of up to 150Mbps and support LTE coverage for up to 20 bands in over 200 networks all over the world.
The 4.7” version will be powered by a 1800 mAh battery whereas the 5.5” phablet will receive a 2500 mAh battery. Both devices are said to run on the new iOS 8 which will, in turn, be compatible with the Apple Watch also revealed today!
Both devices will be available in 16 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB versions in Silver, Gold and Space Gray color options. The off-contract prices begin at $649 for the iPhone 6 and at $749 for the iPhone 6 Plus and reach $949 for the 128 GB iPhone 6 Plus device.
In accordance with the new king on the market, prices for the off-contract iPhone 5S and 5C are lowered to $549 for the 8/16 GB version and $599 for the 32 GB 5S version.
