Amazon Japan jumped the gun and displayed some vital information about the iPhone 6. Most probably, this move was coordinated by Apple in order to build some excitement months before the official launch.
While there are some who think that Amazon Japan actually spilled the beans and revealed these details by mistake (which wouldn’t be the first time, as the e-tailer also unveiled the launch date of Mass Effect 4 recently), others (me included) consider this nothing more than a PR stunt.
According to Amazon.jp, iPhone 6 is supposed to cost 139,999 Japanese Yen (the equivalent of $1378). At such a steep price, it had better pack some alien technology, as otherwise it’s criminally unjustified. Just in case you’re impressed by that price, you should know that it’s for the 4.7-inch 64GB model. The other version, measuring 5.5-inch in diagonal, is meant to be even more expensive.
The dimensions of the iPhone 6 have also been revealed by Amazon Japan. At 130 x 65 x 7mm, and 113g, the next iPhone is slimmer than the previous generation.
As far as the launch date is concerned, Amazon.jp claims that we’ll get to see the iPhone 6 on September 30. For some, it doesn’t really matter if these leaks are true or not, as their reaction is a long yawn. Even T3 is afraid that Apple’s keynote from this fall might be a yawnfest. After all, there’s not much left to learn about the 4.7″ iPhone 6. It will undoubtedly come with iOS6, so this won’t be a surprise, either.
The only new element that Apple could come up with would be the iWatch, but some sources claim that this won’t enter production sooner than November. In this context, there’s not much to keep people on the edge of their seats.
If you’re one of my regular readers, you already know that I’d take an Android flagship over the latest iPhone any day of the week, regardless of how “innovative” and “revolutionary” Apple’s product claims to be. I love it how Apple fanboys try to convince the world not to post bad comments on GSMArena if they don’t like the iPhone 6. I mean, what’s there not to like about the current generation? The small screen, the fingerprint sensor that was hacked in no-time by German hackers, or the ugly flat interface? Neah, the iSheep might be right, the iPhone is the ultimate mobile device!
