Cases for both 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch Apple iPhone 6 photographed?
Why should we care about two cases? The case manufacturers, to be competitive, need to start production of their wares before a phone is introduced. These companies usually won't spend the money needed to start production unless they have a pretty darn good idea of what the phone will look like. With a huge seller like the Apple iPhone, these companies could take a financial pounding if they were to guess incorrectly. Thus, having a 4.7 inch case and a 5.5 inch case is a good indication that we will indeed see two versions of the iPhone released this year, with those screen sizes.
The cases are snapped sitting next to the Apple iPhone 5s and the Samsung Galaxy S5. The case for the 4.7 inch iPhone is larger than the 4 inch iPhone 5s, but smaller than the 5.1 inch Galaxy S5. And the case for the 5.5 inch iPhone is larger than both models. In other words, every thing is sized as it should be. We should point out that the cutouts on the bottom of the case would seem to line up with the earphone jack and the Lightning cable port, and the opening for the camera lens and flash also matches up with some of the dummy units of the iPhone 6 that have been leaked. Of course, that doesn't mean that they are actually legitimate. In other words, yeah, reach for the salt again.
According to the source of the cases, the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 could be released as soon as July with the larger 5.5 inch model getting released during the iPhone's usual September release period.

Thanks for the tip, Tanuki!

Apple's design language is getting pretty old. They should spice it up a little...

I could say the same about every other phone that reuses their "design language". They should spice it up a little. Especially that one company (not gonna name names here (starts with S, ends with ung, rhymes with dung).
But whats the point? If a phone looks sexy, and people love it, why change it?
P.S. No one cares about your opinion. You're a nobody in this world. Just like I, and like many many others. These companies look at the masses, and not a few anti fanboy opinions. Until the masses want a change, then there will be a massive change.

Absolute best post of the day. Apple couldn't care less about the opinion of someone, who won't ever buy their stuff anyway. He said that simply to get green thumbs. Apple sells a bazillion iPhones every year, they know what they're doing bro. +1, and so does Sammy.

Random strangers on tech sites, that are probably teenagers could never hit a nerve. I have a beautiful wife for that, and she's well worth it. Get off PA, and hook up with a chick dude. You suck.

Same as you , you suck everyone on here more than they suck to you
They all hit your nerve that's why I've never seen you incline in any topics but you say things like
this that bla bla bla to cover your but
Your the kid on here not them
Says the guy whose 40+ in age whose middle aged and wants to camp overnight with his middle age wife to buy 2 years old Apple products which are subpar and mediocre

You should try punctuation, it would help.

He has a right to express his opinion. But, it will probably not sway a tech corporation. What will bring about a change is sales, or, lack of. Fzacekn is correct...Apple's design is boring, and so it is non customizable OS...even on Android, phone design is getting boring...OnePlus One does have a nice design...

He's voice will be herd and seen by thousands
At least these new users will know that Apple is a pure hype and brainwashing users telling them Apple is the first when their actually not
31. networkdood (Posts: 6274; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
heard, you mean....and seen, but, yeah, I it is obvious by the under 20% marketshare that APPLE needs to change, and, thus, the bigger screens on the way...

Like Peter Lau mentioned, all phones pretty much look like the iPhone. It's a slab with a glass front with some bezels with optionally 1-3 buttons on the buttom bezel area.
There's an exception or two but they don't really change the overall design much, i.e. if you have a Sony or Nokia, you may get an extra button on the side. Or LG with "buttons on back".
You hit the nail on the head -- the design language for mobile is stagnant and stale. No matter which vendor, it is all "meh".
9. fzacek (Posts: 1848; Member since: 26 Jan 2014)
Basically true, but the iPhone has looked almost exactly the same for four years straight...
12. 0xFFFF (Posts: 3252; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
Apple purposely keeps the design language for a product line the same for a longer period of time.
Basically they want to build a community of elitism around their products. If the products change their look every year, these communities will be smaller and more fragmented and there may not be that immediate recognition:
"Oh, you have an iPhone too. You must be elite like me."
20. networkdood (Posts: 6274; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
I actually see bunches of Samsungs, LGs and Apple iPhone where I live. The high end LGs seem more intriguing. The Samsungs are all clones...and the iPhone? I laugh to myself as another customer fell for its 'premium' marketing. I wish I could say I see lots of Sonys and Motos, but I do not :-(
22. Diezparda (Posts: 209; Member since: 23 Oct 2013)
Based on leaked image i think they are changed a bit. Every manufacturer does the same, they will stick with their signature design so cutomers could easily notice. At least i wish it doesn't have totally same looks as the 5/5s.
3. JOHNNY8573 (Posts: 20; Member since: 11 Nov 2013)
wow, another apple "leak", always thought the tall iphone5/5s looked very weird,like it was rushed without much thought....but it sold millions, what do I know right
4. shamatuu (Posts: 145; Member since: 02 Nov 2011)
really 5.5 iphone with so much wasted space and only adding even more icons. way to go guys.
6. Sauce (unregistered)
You sound like an assumptious babbling hate boy that follows the rest of the hate crowd. Never fails. Way to go, guy.
18. networkdood (Posts: 6274; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
You do the same thing and it gets pathetic how you and your girls cheer tech companies on...

500$ for 2yr contract betting on the 5.5" and 1,200$ w/o
11. darkkjedii (Posts: 11817; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Why does price concern you, when you hate apple so much, you'd never by one anyway? If someone can afford the price, then by all means let them indulge. If Warren Buffett wanted a Bentley, would you quote him the price?
14. 0xFFFF (Posts: 3252; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
No, but if you wanted one, I would quote you the price -- after doubling it, of course.
15. darkkjedii (Posts: 11817; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
You're getting desperate for attention dude. That's not good, I'll let rant on.
27. Arte-8800 (banned) (Posts: 4562; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
Your the one who looks for attention and inclining with everyone on here
Your the one who shows and tells others your a techy when your a smart classic flame war troll
Even this post of yours would've got 5 thumbs down by know if the thumbs down was still active
19. networkdood (Posts: 6274; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
Oh yeah...if Warren Buffet came by, I would quote a price at 2x the normal price, lol...

Apple is not Bentley
I've seen dustbin users having iPhones
At least save these new users not falling into Apples trap and ecosystems

From an earlier PA article, it seems any homeless person can go into an Apple store and emerge with a brand new iPhone and phone contract.
I wonder if this is why Darkkjedii doesn't care how much the iPhone costs...
30. darkkjedii (Posts: 11817; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
I don't care what it costs, cause if I want one I'll buy one, if not I won't. Case closed. There's also Craigslist, tons of deals there. C'mon man wake up, and drop the silly crusade against apple. That company is a beast, get over it. In other news CC needs to start pitching better, the Bombers are lacking.
33. networkdood (Posts: 6274; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
Well, it is a free country - well, it sort of is, nowadays - you both can feel how you feel about tech. I guess my thing would be, though, is why do you want it? What makes you want it? It is really a psychological thing/aspect to marketing. Some people have a strong mind and do not succumb to it so easily, as other do...
But, with that being said, in the end, if you like your choice, then that is all that matters.
For me, I do not choose an iPhone, because for the price one pays, there are too many things an iPhone does not do for me, and there are too many alternatives that offer more options, for less money. I could afford an iPhone, but, I choose not to get one because it does not fit my needs. I was working for a big Telecom company when the phone first came out. I had a TILT 8925 device, and the original iphone did not persuade me to switch. There was some appeal to it, though. But, when I saw how many different Android phones were coming out, and how they offered stuff like removable microSD cards and removable batteries, just to name two of many things an iPhone was lacking, it did not feel right getting an iPhone. I am just one of those people that is not persuaded by marketing gimmicks and un-knowledgeable (?) salespeople looking to make a quick buck. Plus, when something becomes popular, that normally has been a sign that it is not the best product on the product. Rather, it is the product with the best marketing and biggest sales push, at retail stores. Working at a big telecom, taking tech calls all day, I was exposed to hundreds of different phones, and that was what got me thinking what I really wanted in a phone.
34. networkdood (Posts: 6274; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
Also, it bugs me that Android companies have less offerings for removable batteries and micro-SD cards - a micro-SD card slot is more important to me than the removable battery, but, with the cloud options available, I have learned to live without both. I still dislike those options slowly going away, though...
21. networkdood (Posts: 6274; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
I would think 199 for the normal iPhone and 299 for the larger one...anything higher would be insane.
23. fzacek (Posts: 1848; Member since: 26 Jan 2014)
That's actually very likely, considering Apple's thirst for money and profit...
32. networkdood (Posts: 6274; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
well, it would be the same pricing as Samsung for their GSs and Notes...
35. Taters (Posts: 3229; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
So the 4.7 is basically going to be the same size as the 5 inch GS4 and the 5.5 is going to be bigger than the Note 3. Wow. Talk about fail Apple. I expected better.

The camera is on the left side of the phone !!!!!!!!
39. AfterShock (Posts: 2812; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
I seem to remember that people were dropping their iPhone like a crack ho reaching for a pipe when the ip4 came out.
I bet, people drop these like hot potato's as well for the first year or so.
All to apples benefit no doubt, first make sheep weak sauce then load em down so they can't move fast.
Easier to fleece.

The funny aspect to that warren Buffett comparison is that he stills drive a old Toyota Camry.
