New leak compares key component from iPhone 6 and ‘iPhone Air’ phablet

Apple’s next generation iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch “iPhone Air” phablet are reportedly nearing the mass production phase and as a result, we’ve seen component leaks kick into high gear recently. Monday morning we seemingly saw the main printed circuit board (PCB) from the iPhone 6 for the first time, and now a new leak may show the iPhone 6 circuit board next to the same component from the larger 5.5-inch iPhone, again supporting the notion that Apple is planning two new iPhone models this year.

New iPhone 6 component leak reveals major new features

A new iPhone 6 internal component has been leaked, with Nowhereelse posting images that show the purported main iPhone 6 printed circuit board (PCB) as received from a reliable Chinese source. The leaked logic board does not have any of the chips you’d expect to see on it, and appears to fit the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model. The component is similar to the iPhone 5s’ logic board, although it has a longer top section, with MacRumors noticing that screw holes in this elongated area fit screw holes from a leaked iPhone 6 back case.

And catch up they will — this year’s iPhone 6 display is expected to stretch to 4.7 inches and its phablet counterpart might feature an enormous 5.5-inch display. More →

iPhone 6 vs Metal Samsung Galaxy

Here’s yet another way the iPhone 6 is messing with Samsung

Here’s yet another way the iPhone 6 is messing with Samsung

Samsung has already started making fun in a TV commercial of the unreleased iPhone 6, telling potential buyers that its Android handsets had bigger displays for quite a while in an obvious attempt to kill the iPhone 6 buzz and divert attention to its own 2014 flagship handset. But the company appears to actually have a real iPhone 6-related problem, Digitimes reports, which may affect its own smartphone launch plans. Apple’s massive metal chassis orders with suppliers are apparently preventing Samsung from placing its own metal chassis orders for a future iPhone 6 killer that would ditch plastic in favor of metal.

Digitimes has learned from sources familiar with the matter that yield rates have not been an issue for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and the company instead has a completely different reason to hold the handset back.
