The iPhone 6 is expected to launch this fall. There are all kinds of rumors flying about the high-tech features of the iPhone 6, including solar panel power cells and holographic displays.

Which features are plausible, and which are just crazy? Read on to learn more.


1. iPhone 6 Will Have Solar Cells

In our roundup of iPhone 6 battery life rumors, we outlined one intriguing rumor about the iPhone 6. According to Forbes, there is some evidence that the iPhone 6 could have solar cell charging capabilities. This would allow for charging on the go.

This rumor is feasible, given the fact that we know Apple ramped up sapphire glass production. Since sapphire glass could conceivably be used in making solar-friendly smartphones, this rumor isn’t entirely outlandish. It is, however, still just a rumor…for now.


2. iPhone 6 Will Have Holographic Projections

As you can see in the concept art above, some people think that the iPhone 6 could be capable of creating a bigger screen by using holographic projections. It has also been rumored that just the keyboard would be projected holographically, which would make it possible for people to type on a virtual keyboard that is more like a laptop or desktop keyboard.

Unfortunately, this rumor seems unlikely to come true. That being said, a hyper-futuristic feature like holographic displays would seriously up the “cool factor” of the iPhone 6, and cause a boost in sales.


3. 10MP Camera, Swappable Lenses Possible for iPhone 6

There are some rumors that the next-gen iPhone will have a 10MP camera. What’s even more exciting is the rumor that the iPhone 6 might even have swappable lenses for the camera, according to ValueWalk.

How would a 10MP camera stand up against the competition? In our comparison of the iPhone 5s and the Samsung Galaxy S5, we noted that the rear camera on the new Galaxy phone is 16MP, while the rear camera on the iPhone 5s is 8MP. In other words, the iPhone 6’s rumored 10MP camera would be a step up from the current iPhone, but not quite enough to take on some Android phones.

This rumor seems entirely feasible, at least when it comes to the camera’s megapixels. While there does appear to be some patent paperwork backing up the swappable lenses claim, it is not certain whether these lenses will be added to the iPhone 6.


4. iPhone 6 Will Not Come in 2 Sizes

Business Insider reports that at least one expert isn’t buying the popular claim that the iPhone 6 will come in a “phone” size and a “phablet” size.

BI reports that, at least according to Andy Hargreaves at Pacific Crest, the iPhone 6 is likely to come in a 4.7-inch size, and will not have a corresponding 5.5-inch mate. This rumor seems fairly grounded in reality.


5. iPhone 6 Will Be Waterproof

The video above shows concept art for a water-resistant iPhone 6.

Many smartphones on the market today are water-resistant to IP67 standards, including the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony’s Xperia line of phones. It seems like that Apple will create waterproof phones in order to stay competitive. That being said, the level of waterproofing is still to be determined.

IP67 waterproofing makes the phones waterproof, but not under extreme situations. A phone with IP67 waterproofing should not be submerged at depths exceeding 1 meter, nor should it stay submerged for over 30 minutes. Apple could really up the competition if they created a truly waterproof, IP68-rated smartphone.
