The iPhone 6 on release date this 2014 is likely to prove right most of its rumoured specs and features, headlined by a lightweight and slim build with a 64-bit A8 processing chip plus a killer camera combo.

According to Phone Arena, what largely the iPhone 6 will be has been confirmed by a YouTube clip that was uploaded this week. The online video shared information that allegedly came from a site that is dedicated to everything about the next iPhone, said the same report.
It should be noted, however, that there is no way at the moment to verify the authenticity of the details provided.
2 large-screen iPhones
Regardless, the new report is aligned with the solidifying belief that Apple's sequel to the iPhone 5S will come with two different display panel dimensions - the 4.7-inch model that some blog reports referred to as the iPhone Air and the 5.5-inch edition that supposedly will tussle with the likes of Galaxy Note 4.
Both handsets will sport an identical screen resolution of 1704 x 960 bit with varying pixel density. As expected, the first iPhone phablet will boast of a higher 416 pixels per inch (ppi) while its smaller sibling will debut with 356ppi pixels flooding the screen.
Super-slim iPhone 6
In the same video, the following dimension was provided: 138mm x 67mm x 7mm, which somehow backs earlier suggestions that Apple intends to further shrink the iPhone thickness while making light as a feather.
This plan will be realised with Apple using new mix of materials like Liquidmetal alloy, graphene and sapphire that will make up of the final cut that is the iPhone casing. MacRumors reported that Apple chief designer Jony Ive has largely hinted of 'the new materials' that will be part of the 2014 iPhone release.
A beautiful beast
Underneath its aesthetic appeal, the leaked YouTube clip also claimed that the bevy of iPhone 6 killer features will again be fired up by a 64-bit application processor with A8 chip replacing the A7 that came with the 5S last year.
10MP rear shooter
The most notable part of the report is the likelihood that iPhone buyers will get a significant camera bump up with their iPhone 6 purchases as the main shooter of the device will reportedly be updated from 8MP to 10MP.
Also, the front-facing camera will improve from 1.2MP to 2.1MP, which is a possibility that Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac has recently floated around.
And as a form of bonus, the iPhone 6 on its release date, likely on September 2014, will have a 128GB variant that will sell at $400, the Phone Arena report claimed, even as numerous analyst pegged the device's starting price at $200 for the regular model and $300 for the iOS 8-powered phablet - all presumably with contract agreements.
