As the market continues to speculate iPhone 6 specs and release dates, industry insiders have revealed iPhone 6 monitor size will be expanded to 4.7 inches. Besides larger sizes, the new generation iPhone will maintain its advantages in lightness. As a result industry rumors have surfaced that the new generation iPhone LED backlight specs will also become much lighter.
According to sources from Apple supply chain, the iPhone 6 is likely to be released in June 2014, and will have larger monitor size of 4.7”. Industry insiders also projected the iPhone 6 will have a much lighter frame, which will lead to upgrades in LED backlight specs. In the previous generation, the iPhone used 0.6t side-view type LED, in contrast the new iPhone will probably be adopting 0.4t side-view type LED.
The industry is also paying close attention to the next generation iPad specs. Similar to the iPhone, related industries believe the new iPad will also be larger than previous generations and be enlarged from 9.7” to 12”. LED backlight modules in iPad Air are also likely to be switched from the current 0.8t side-view type LED to 0.6t side-view type LED to maintain the pad’s light weight and thinness features, while enlarging device size.
