The latest iPhone 6 rumors point to the device using new quantum dots to drastically improve the display quality.
A recent report from Business Insider states that these dots, which are nanocrystals made out of semiconductors, will be used to bring something different technology to the smartphone market. They have a weird effect on screens as the dots can be tuned to emit very specific frequencies of light which means colors can be reproduced more accurately than with traditional materials.
Apple filed a patent for the technology earlier this year. Amazon used quantum dots for the Kindle Fire HDX tablets. Some of the issues with the technology include a narrow color gamut and a distinct light-bleed issue. Apple's patent reveals similar issues but states that R&D is currently working to address them.
The iPhone 6 release date could fall in June 2014, according to a new report.
LEDinside recently revealed that Apple will use different LED backlights in its future products and also stated that the company plans to have the next-gen iPhone out by June. This contradicts many of the other recent rumors, which state that Apple will release the device in the fall, keeping in step with the launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5.
Most sources feel that Apple will not change its fall release schedule for the iPhone that has been in place since the launch of the 4S in 2011. The company could end up making some adjustments if it is planning to introduce a completely new product, but that doesn't have to effect its normal roll out time for its flagship handset.
The iPhone 6 is rumored to feature iOS 8, and new bezel-less exterior design, a more advanced version of the fingerprint sensor found on the 5s, and the company's new A8 chip that is currently being designed by Samsung.
