iPhone 6 cu display de 4.8 inch ar putea ajunge pe piata abia in 2014

  Ieri Tim Cook nu a negat posibila lansare a unui iPhone cu ecran mai mare de 4 inch, iar analistii americani speculeaza ezitarea sa, afirmand ca acest produs ar putea fi lansat in luna iunie a anului viitor. Un analist al celor de la Jeffries sustine ca problemele in a produce suficient de multe ecrane pentru iPhone 6 si implementarea altor modificari substantiale ar fi la baza amanarii lansarii dispozitivului. Terminalul ar urma sa aiba un chip construit folosind un proces de fabricatie de 20nm, ar putea avea 4 sau 8 nuclee, ar putea avea un ecran IGZO de 4.8 inch, iar la final ramane un iOS imbunatatit pentru hardware si capabil in continuare sa concureze cu Android-ul.

We see three possible bottlenecks for the iPhone that could contribute to lower yields (and hence higher costs) and/or a delayed launch.

  •  App processor production at 20nm. Apple’s current iPhone app processor is on 32nm. For the iPhone 6 we think Apple will likely skip over 28nm and go to 20nm to facilitate adding more cores (4 or even 8). While TSMC is targeting a 2014 ramp in its 20nm production we think that issues like double patterning could make it a more complicated transition than the 28nm ramp, which had its own substantial ramp and yield issues.
  •  Display shifting from in-cell LCD to on-cell OLED or IGZO. We think in- cell is having difficulty ramping to 4.8”, which is making Apple look at switching to on-cell (a different integrated touchscreen technology) and OLED (despite Apple’s suppliers being well behind Samsung in their OLED capabilities) or IGZO.
  •  Revamped OS. We think Apple plans to re-architect iOS to utilize more cores and better compete with Samsung. Also, we believe the way iOS interoperates with iCloud, gestures controls, and advertising will be substantially upgraded.

  Separat de iPhone 6, iPhone 5S ar urma sa fie lansat in luna iunie a acestui an si pana acum majoritatea zvonurilor au indicat aceasta data ca fiind sigura. Avand in vedere ezitarea lui Tim Cook in a nega posibila existenta a iPhone 6 cu un ecran atat de mare, cred ca e suficient de clar faptul ca Apple testeaza macar un asemenea dispozitiv, iar daca experienta de utilizare va fi buna, el va ajunge intr-un final in mainile utilizatorilor.
