From the sounds of things, the much rumoured 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 is causing Apple a whole host of problems, problems that might well see the phone released in very limited quantities or delayed until next year.
The report comes from Ming-Ch-Kuo, an analyst from KGI Securities, who believes that if the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is realeased at the end of this year it will be in numbers far lower than we are used to. Challenges are reported to include technology related to the in-cell touch display panel, and the phone’s metal casing. Other rumours indicate that the sapphire cover glass on the display might not pass the drop test.
Despite these issues, the phone is still due to go into production later this month. [CNet]
