The iPhone phablets will reportedly pack a display that’s bigger than 5 inches and a 20 nanometer processor made by TSMC that’s either going to be a new A8 processor or a revamped A7 CPU. Samsung manufactures the current 64-bit A7 processor used by the iPhone 5s and 2013 iPad models, on a HKMG 28 nanometer process.
A report from South Korean publication ET News said the iPhone 6 will be released in September and will feature a slimmer profile than its predecessor. The same story said that the price of the iPhone 5s will go down to $100 in May for reasons unknown, but a Phablet (Phone and Tablet hybrid) launch would certainly explain the price drop.
It’s not clear at this time whether any of these new iPhone reports are based on actual Apple plans, or whether they’re related in any way. What’s absolutely certain, however, is that they can’t possibly be confirmed.
For what it’s worth, numerous reports have now said that Apple will finally launch a bigger iPhone this year in an effort to take on smartphones with larger displays from the competition.
