It’s looking more and more likely that Apple will announce two versions of the iPhone 6 later this year, and that the larger 5.5-inch model will be uniquely blessed with 128GB of storage and optical image stabilisation.
It is claimed by Chinese website Wei Feng that the smaller 4.7-inch model will not get these two features and instead its storage options will be limited to 32GB and 64GB; Apple is believed to finally be ditching the 16GB option on all models.
A first for any Apple product, optical image stabilisation means the lens of the rear camera will be suspended by springs which act as dampers, reducing movement. This leads to smoother video and better low-light images, as the image sensor can stay active for longer, capturing more light.
As such, as expect to see a marked price difference between the two models of iPhone 6, as Apple looks to dominate both the smartphone and phablet markets. The 4.7-inch model is expected to be announced in September - possibly the 19th - while the 5.5in version is thought to arrive later in the year.
