China Mobile and Apple finally partnered up to launch the latest versions of the iPhone for customers in China.
The carrier is the largest in the world with around 763 million subscribers. Apple's CEO Tim Cook attended recent the launch at the carrier's headquarters and briefly discussed the iPhone 6 when questioned about it by those in attendance.
After being asked if the next-gen iPhone would feature a bigger screen Cook responded by saying that Apple does not like talking about future projects, but that they are working on "great things" and want to keep them a secret because "you will be so much happier when you see it.
He also expressed his excitement over the new deal with China mobile.
"Today is just the beginning of China Mobile and Apple coming together to deliver the best experience in the world," Cook said.
The iPhone 6 is rumored to feature an 8-megapixel camera with improved image stabilization.
A previous report from The China Post confirmed that Apple will not be upgrading the resolution of the rear camera for the iPhone 6. It cites analysts from Nomura Securities for the information.
"According to Nomura Securities, Largan's recently lagging performance in the market is caused by rumors that Apple may adopt an 8-megapixel camera with improved optical image stabilization on its upcoming handset, instead of the 16MP upgrade anticipated by industry observers," wrote the site.
Apple is choosing to go with the same megapixels in order to give the device a more portable form factor, according to the source. Largan might be employed for the task of creating the new camera as the company is capable of coping with the complexity of the camera module, according to Nomura Securities.
The iPhone 6 is rumored to be released in the fall of 2014.
