Chris Caso, senior research analyst at Susquehanna Financial Group, offers his expectations of the iPhone 6 gathered together from conversations with members of Apple’s supply chain. He speaks on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg West.”
We’re expecting a number of new things with this phone. I think that the most important feature… is a larger screen. And that’s because Apple is so far behind some of the Android phones that you have out there larger screens. So, I do think that they leave some market share on the table by not having that larger screen.
But, there are some other things as well. We obviously expect a faster processor, uh, we’re expecting faster Wi-Fi on this phone and, in addition, even a faster cellular modem… LTE Advanced, which provides faster download speeds and more efficient use of the network from the carriers.
We talked to a number of folks that are in Apple’s supply chain. Obviously, there are a lot of rumors that are around on Apple and there [are] a lot of products that are prototyped that never hit the market, but, with the iPhone, this is something that gets developed pretty, pretty far in advance. Uh, but, having said that, Appel always manages to throw something in to surprise everyone. – Chris Caso, Susquehanna Financial Group senior research analyst
