The iPhone 6 gets announced (finally!) in two versions
The iPhone 6 has finally been announced, and now we get to report on prices, release date, and specs. Are you ready? Because here we go.
A new iteration of the almighty and popular iPhone is come among us. This new revision, dubbed iPhone 6 comes in two models, as we previously reported, called iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus respectively based on their size. And, obviously, both of them come with Retina HD Display.
The regular iPhone 6 sports a 4.7 inch display while its Plus counterpart is 5.5 inch display, so it’s even bigger than the Nexus 5. Their resolutions are 1334 x 750 pixels and 1920 x 1080 pixels respectively, so we’re in front of a truly HD capable device.
Users will be surprised at how thin these new iPhone 6 are. The iPhone 6 is 6.9mm thick, with the iPhone plus growing only 2 millimeters at 7.1mm thick. They are powered by Apple’s new A8 processor, which Apple claim is 25 percent faster than its predecessor.
Apple claim the new iPhone 6 models are capable of providing 14 hours of talk time on the regular version, but extends to 24 hours with the iPhone 6 Plus. Almost makes you want to start a long distance relationship to see if it’s true, right?
Still, the most important factor, the one that will decide your purchase in the end is the price, right? Well, this is how much they cost.
With contract, the iPhone 6 starts at $199 USD for the 16 GB version, going up to $299 for the 64 GB and $399 for 128 GB. The iPhone 6 Plus, instead, starts out at $299, and goes up to $399 and $499. Is that extra almost-an-inch worth $100 USD? We can’t answer, that’s your call.
