Although you may be tired of the posts connected with the upcoming iPhone 6 and its support of the Near Field Communication technology (NFC), I feel that I have to share a new rumor with you. This rumor suggests that the next-generation handset will indeed get a chip that supports the new NFC standard that is yet to be launched. Moreover, people familiar with the matter believe that a Dutch firm called NXP will become the manufacturer of the chip.
Several new rumors have recently appeared online, which deal with the new A8 chip that is expected to be added to the iPhone 6. According to these rumors, the processor will remain dual-core, however, it will feature a speed of 2.0 GHz or even more.

Nevertheless, we all know that even such a weak at the first glance SoC copes with the required tasks better than the chips with multiple cores found inside of the rivals' smartphones.
Several new images have recently appeared on the Internet that show us new leaked components for the upcoming iPhone 6.

As noted by people familiar with the matter, the handset will come in three different colors, namely, space grey, gold and silver. Moreover, it will feature an updated Touch ID fingerprint sensor, a faster A8 processor and a number of other improvements. The design of the gadget will be very similar to the design of the iPhone 5s. The most conspicuous difference will be the size of the iPhone.

As you probably know, Apple's iPhone 5s features a small chip called M7, which allows the handset to cope with difficult tasks, for example, modern graphics in new games, without any troubles.
