New Analyst Shows iPhone 6 design locked down, specs include 4.8″ screen, 802.11ac Wi-Fi

Nowadays we hear many reports and rumors about Apple's next generation iPhone which said to be called "iPhone 6". At first we heard that Apple is working on a 4.7-inch screen with a high retina display and now and according to an analyst with Cowen and Company who must have been following our non-scientific poll which had the majority of respondents opt for a 4.7-inch form factor.
The analyst also says that the phone will include the latest 802.11ac networking, also known as Gigabit Wi-Fi, for three times greater wireless transfer speeds. Apple currently supports Gigabit Wi-Fi in the recently refreshed AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule wireless appliances and across its Mac Pro, MacBook and iMac families…

Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company (via AppleInsider) wrote in yesterday’s note to clients that Apple has internally “locked down” the iPhone 6 design with Gigabit Wi-Fi and a 4.8-inch screen. Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and HTC’s One both support 802.11ac Wi-Fi networking. He does not expect the phone to exceed five inches due to Apple’s “unwavering principle of one hand use.”

Acuri acknowledged as much, estimating that Apple will launch the iPhone 6 in September 2014. He’s also expecting some “key software innovations” such as a long-rumored mobile payment solution from Apple leveraging the existing iBeacons, Touch ID and Passbook technologies.
Aside from hardware tweaks and design changes, Arcuri also said that Apple is planning “key software innovations” with the next major release of its iOS platform.
He expects the company will leverage iBeacon, Touch ID and Passbook as part of a push into new services with mobile payments.
Interesting right ?

With the iPhone 5s and iOS 6 and 7, Apple has cleverly laid groundwork for mobile payments with Touch ID, Passbook and iBeacons. These technologies could allow Apple to integrate loyalty programs and digital coupons with a secure payment system.

So are you excited ?
