Jimmy Lin's iPhone 6 leak is genuine, claim Apple Hong Kong sources
0. phoneArena 16 Jun 2014, 05:36 posted on
Not that we've had any doubts about Jimmy Lin's connections, but now another source is confirming that the iPhone, which the ex-teen idol showed not long ago, is indeed an iPhone 6 Beta sample. The source has apparently been one of Apple's Hong Kong employees, who had been given several such samples for testing purposes...

it looks like the HTC ONE on the back,well it seems like its too slim but too much bezel on the top and bottom,

Agreed, iPod touch body with HTC One antenna bands
The very top antenna band looks terrible, why not just two like the M8
4.7" screen like Moto X, but probably the size of the S4 which has a 5"

For me it looks like fusion of iPod Touch 5, HTC One with buttons from Nokia Lumia 925. Probably looks ok IRL as space gray (or black).

The Touch has a 1-piece back. This sample has a multi-piece back. Personally, I think the iP5 looks cleaner, design-wise. This version of the iP6 just looks... uninspiring? The plastic/polymer that separates the back panels is just ugly and accentuates the gap. Ugh!

I agree, the screen-bezel ratio is around 66%, like the Galaxy S3 and just below the Nexus 4, both of which are 2012 phones. Design-wise, the iPhone 6 would have been more fitting 2 years ago.

Tim Cook will be like 'this is the mother of all iPhones, the greatest, most beautiful, magnificent, slimmest, marvellous, awesome of all iPhones we have released to date'

No he won't, he won't even be the one to discuss it.

Nice, but the white stripes are too bold. Shrink em down, and it's a winner.

The white stripes to me makes the phone look like its color has come off, hope this is just a demo or testing piece and the real phone is much better

They need to shrink that front button, keeping things symmetrical is going to keep making the phone large-for-screen-size.
The darker colors will probably look better, that shiny grey looks terrible with the white antenna strips (?).

Looks very nice, like all iphones do. But like all iphones, it's the king of bezels! Apple, have you missed G2 and G3?

Sorry but no iphones will have a QHD this year when they are so slow when it comes to current trends in terms of screen size and resolution.

Genuine and genius :)

I like how the back looks, but the front is not that good looking or perhaps it's the angle of the photo? I'd have to see it in person.

Please, no QHD. It's useless garbage on anything smaller than a 10" tablet. Ars Technica gigged the G3 in their review because of all the compromises. I honestly care nothing about the bezels, but do care about the screen being ridiculous and useless.

You mean in it. Trust me, he's not on it dude.

Lol did they just place him on top of the casket

What with the flash? iPhone 5s had duel flash but the iPhone 6 will only have single led flash?
24. blackberry_Boy (Posts: 176; Member since: 27 May 2014)
Now all we need is a video showing the firing and the new OS and bam we will know everything

If this is indeed the iPhone 6, the design looks a bit stale. It's like they phoned it in.
