iPhone 6 phablet may or may not launch this year?
We’ve heard rumors of Apple getting ready to launch as many as two iPhone 6 models this year, and most of these rumors point to a WWDC launch as well. The odd thing is that there are many conflicting rumors about the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 phablet. Some call this the higher-end device that Apple may launch, and others don’t. Regardless of the source, we get some additional rumors today that may disappoint those looking forward to this.
A new research from UBS analyst Steve Milunovich points to Apple not really planning on launching both the 4.7-inch and the 5.5-inch models at the same time. Another part to worry about is the fact that Milunovich thinks that we shouldn’t expect a launch to happen at WWDC this year, and instead in the fall. He also mentions that both devices will retain the same display resolution in order to avoid fragmentation.
Obviously at this point it could also mean that the 4.7-inch model will launch in June and the bigger phablet in the fall, but that’s not clear in the rumor. Let’s hope Apple doesn’t plan to wait that long with so many hot devices in the pipeline.
