Recently South Korea’s top brokerage called KDB Daewoo Securities, known for having some inside sources, has released some information on the “iPhone 6.” Now most of the ‘leaked’ information is up to par with what most other “iPhone 6” rumors have been; however, there are a few things that stand out with this leak.
The report states 2 iPhone models to hit the market in 2014, one being the “iPhone 6” and the other being a phablet-sized iPhone. From the report, the largest difference between the two is display size. The “iPhone 6” is said to have a 4.7 or 4.8 inch screen while the phablet-sized iPhone will have a 5.5 inch screen. Also, the “iPhone 6” display has a full HD resolution (1920×1080) while the phablet will head into “quad HD” territory (2272×1280).
Most of the other specs are similar to the iPhone 5s including 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB internal storage options, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 3.2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 1,800 mAh battery. KDB also expects Apple’s 2014 iPhone models to be powered by a 64-bit A8 processor.
Now let’s start with the odd stuff. KDB states in their report that Apple will not launch these devices with iOS 8, even though we’ve heard from countless other sources that they will. KDB has said that these devices will ship with iOS 7.2. Also, KDB believes the devices will launch in the second or third quarter this year, contradictory to other reports saying it will release in September.
So the question that has been boggling in my mind from reading this report is, what does this mean for jailbreaking? With Apple possibly releasing their next devices on iOS 7.2 and with the recently discovered iBoot exploit, will the next jailbreak come out quicker?
What is your opinion on this KDB report? Is it bogus or truth? Let us know in the comments below!
