Alleged case mold prototype for the Apple iPhone 6 leaks, reveals larger screen

Case mold prototype for the Apple iPhone 6 leaks, reveals larger screen
A leak out of Japan allegedly shows a prototype of a case that will be produced for the Apple iPhone 6. As you can imagine, the pictures that compare the prototype with the 4-inch Apple iPhone 5s clearly show that the screen of Apple's upcoming flagship will be larger.  Remember that case manufacturers are usually plugged into the major handset producers because their business depends on being early to market, with a case that snugly fits and protects a newly launched model. Still, since the image of the iPhone 6 is a little rough around the edges, plus it seems to be lacking the dual True Tone flash, the possibility of this being a complete fake definitely stands.

As far as a larger screened iPhone is concerned, we have seen quite a few leaks recently, promoting the idea that the next-gen iPhone will be offered with a 4.7 inch screen. In addition, a phablet-sized model is also likely this year, carrying a 5.5 inch glass. Both sizes could see a jump in pixel density to 441ppi from the 326ppi found currently on the Apple iPhone 5s. The pair of new iPhone models are both said to be employing sapphire glass.

Other speculation about the Apple iPhone 6 states that the 8MP snapper on back will offer OIS. And the aperture will weigh in at f/1.8, which will result in better pictures in low-light conditions than those produced by the camera on the Apple iPhone 5s, which sports an aperture of f/2.2.

As usual with a story of this magnitude, open up the salt shaker and take this story with a grain of the stuff. We have a long way to go until the usual September release of the next-gen Apple iPhone and there will probably be plenty of more leaks ahead.
