5.5" Apple iPhone 6 leaks, as Jimmy Lin strikes again

5.5
Just a few days ago, Taiwanese actor-singer celebrity Jimmy Lin posed for the camera holding what is allegedly Apple’s yet unreleased iPhone 6. Despite this being a leak, we had all reasons to believe it is identical or very close to the real deal - Lin had already leaked the iPhone 5 (which proved to be just what that image showed), and in the meantime, sources within manufacturing have confirmed that the iPhone 6 leak is what Apple is indeed producing.

Now, though, we see an even clearer image of the iPhone 6 (and what seems its 5.5-inch, phablet-sized model), as Jimmy Lin strikes again. The celebrity has posted a picture on his Weibo account, showing him repairing an iPhone 5s with a shattered display, and casually alongside you can see the 5.5” iPhone 6.

The alleged 5.5” iPhone 6 is turned off, but you can clearly see the changed position of the physical buttons with the volume keys on the left and the only place left for a power/lock key being on the right, closer to your thumb. Take a closer look at this alleged beta iPhone 6 unit, and also notice it’s iPad mini-like design with curvier edges. Do you like what you see?

That one's certainly not meant for one handed usage.

Doesn't it? White/Silver and Black look the best imo.

Damn, I do not consider myself attracted towards the iPhone, but this one is going to make me line up to get one ASAP too.

Seems like the sides are flatter than the previous leaked demo units. Much better, I just hope the black version isn't crazy shiny like the leaks have shown - makes it look like dirt cheap plastic

The mockups are probably made of plastic.

Wouldn't be surprised if this was a KIRF. Rumors have been circulating long enough for the KIRFers to make mockups

Why does it look like a big white plastic brick?
Has to be a dummy unit.

OMG this thing will beat every other phone on the market when it comes out.
This will kill the sales of Samsung and LG and everyone else.
Apple retakes the smartphone market.
