After taking the veils off the 4.7″ iPhone 6s earlier this afternoon, Apple also announced the 5.5″ successor of their last year’s iPhone 6 and they called this one the Apple iPhone 6s Plus.
The iPhone 6s Plus comes with a 12-megapixel camera which can capture videos in 4K resolution and has optical image stabilization feature for taking clearer pictures. The handset comes with Apple’s all new A9 chipset and M9 secondary processor. The front-facing camera on the iPhone phablet series has been increased to 5MP and it can record Full HD videos now.
The 6s Plus, thanks to its new CPU, packs support for Cat. 6 LTE which is “twice faster” than Wi-Fi. The phone offers NFC (for Apple Pay) and a Wi-Fi 802.11ac antenna which supports MIMO and VoLTE. The handset also offers Force Touch which is one of the key features in the newly announced iPhone generation.
In the USA, the iPhone 6s Plus — alongside the iPhone 6s — will start retailing on September 25th. The iOS 9-powered smartphone carries a $749 price tag for its 16GB model, $849 for 64GB and $949 for the variant with 128GB storage.
