Now that Apple has announced the most anticipated iPhone models ever, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, I know everyone is itching to get their hands on it. I know I am! But it has not yet landed on our shores. As of the moment, no official announcement yet from Apple but while waiting, allow me to share with you what to look forward to from these two gorgeous devices.

 

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

 

Apple has raised the bar on their iPhone product line by introducing an all new design and bigger display that every iPhone user have been waiting for years. Borrowing the design cues and form factor from iTouch and iPad, resulted to an amazing thin, light, head turner and sophisticated handset in the market. Housed with aluminium smooth metal seamlessly wrap the entire body of the phone. Increasing the phone size obviously will make it easier to shrink its thickness, and yes this is the thinnest iPhone ever made. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is something to feast by smartphone lovers.

iPhone 6 Plus

This will be the new iPhone flagship. Stretching the display to a stunning resolution of 401 ppi, 1920x1020 Retina HD at 5.5 inch, shatter proof and oleophobic coating as protection on the IPS Display. Packed with the second generation 64-bit Architecture, faster and 50% more efficient than its predecessor, so expect better performance and increased battery life. There is a motion coprocessor that efficiently measure your daily activities. Maintaining the 8MP iSight camera, Apple added a new sensor with Focus Pixel, improved in all aspects, from continuous autofocus, exposure control, video recording that allows you to shoot 1080p HD video with time lapse features, built in OIS, and my favourite slo-mo feature, from 120fps now its 240fps -- double the drama and effects, double the fun of capturing precious life moments. Touch ID is still there, serves as your security password to access your phone. Now it also allows you to pay or approve purchases via Apple Pay.


iPhone 6

I always wanted an iPhone at 4.7 inch because that is my perfect size for smartphones. Gladly Apple went to that direction and here we are, an iPhone 6 with a 4.7 inch display. It has Retina HD also at 1334 x 750 with a resolution of 326 ppi. Nothing mind blowing here since its an iPhone 6 Plus in a smaller scale housed with the same design and metal wrap. The difference is that the iPhone 6 does not include the iSight camera's Optical Image Stabilisation feature and some exclusive OS features unique to 6 Plus. Nothing much to miss if you choose the iPhone 6 over the 6 Plus since the design are the same in terms of the processor technology and display technology. They differ mainly in the display resolution, battery size, and thickness.
