A claimed 5.5" iPhone chassis leaks out, gets compared to the 4.7" iPhone 6

What you see above, is a purported 5.5" iPhone chassis, sourced from the confines of Apple's Chinese supply chain, sitting next to the already leaked frame of the 4.7" iPhone 6 for a good measure. We've seen dummies of both upcoming Apple handsets compared before, but never what's alleged to be close to final chassis frames, sitting next to each other, and certainly never seen them together on a wrinkled newspaper. The first thing that comes to mind seeing this new design language for the umpteenth time, is that both iPhones are shaping up to be very, very thin, though this doesn't always translate into better ergonomics, especially given the fact that now Apple has to fit the Touch ID finger scanner on each and every mobile gear it outs, so the 4.7-incher will likely be as large as some compact Android 5-inchers. What do you think, do you like the new iPhones design leaks you are seeing so far?

Are you even old enough to remember the first iPhone. This is just a thinner and larger version of that really.

I think the top and bottom sections inside the antenna bands will be a different color, or at least I hope so because I think the leaks so far are fugly. I hope it turns out like these two renders which looks better and follows the iPhone 5/5s style back. http://www.spigen.com/media/wysiwyg/iphone6/assets/02.jpg http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2014/07/iphone6render.jpg

Why do you keep asking us what we think. Im sure most people's mind haven't changed from the last 48,000 leaks that come everyday. Ill tell you what I think PA, we have enough leaks of the same exact thing over and over again with the same exact render over and over again. Lets just stop with the reports from sketchy supply chains and wait until September, litterally a few weeks, or until a working prototype is found in a bar. GOosh!

I agree with you bro. Leaks are cool and all, but I'm patiently waiting for PA to post the article saying: Apple sends out invite for a September announcement. Until then, I'm good.

I'm defo up on the 5.5 inch gold version, with 128gb and a rumoured 2GB of RAM, and increased battery. A lot of people whom had doubts earlier think this is pretty much the real deal.

Fake It shows what the lack of a decent script and budget won't do Any similarity to any future apple device or any film that has beeen commercially released is purely coincidental! An alternative DVD only ending Ellen Louise Tearley has escaped colony LV-426 with Toad a young girl, injured marine A reincarnated Kyle Reese, and Bishop, who is NOT, NOT and Android!!! However that is why passport control ask you is you packed your bags and the Alien Queen named Apple smuggled herself aboard. (Apple) realising Bishop was in fact an Android, ripped bishop in two Bishop as you can see from the photo did not make it Or are we to believe they got handed half a phone twice Fake The above a true story The end
