Apple iPhone 6 dimensions (4.7-inch model) confirmed by manufacturing mold?

Apple iPhone 6 dimensions (4.7-inch model) confirmed by manufacturing mold?
Over the week-end, we showed you a few images that purportedly depicted a manufacturing mold for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6. It’s said that the images came from Foxconn, the Taiwan-based company that makes iPhones for Apple (among many other things).

Now, French website Nowhereelse published a new photo (see below) that shows another manufacturing mold, this time compared to a white iPhone 4S. The presence of the iPhone 4S, plus the fact that the mold is allegedly made for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, allowed Nowhereelse to calculate the approximate dimension of the upcoming Apple handset: 138 by 64 mm (5.43 by 2.51 inches). The thickness of the smartphone can’t be determined for now.

At 138 x 64 mm, the iPhone 6 would be significantly larger than the iPhone 5S (123.8 x 58.6 mm), and, obviously, also much larger than the iPhone 4S (this measures 115.2 x 58.6 mm).

Of course, we need to keep in mind that we can’t know how legit these images are. But it’s worth mentioning that Nowhereelse has a pretty good track record when it comes to Apple-related leaks.

Apple is expected to announce not just a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 later this year, but also a model that reportedly sports a 5.5-inch display. Both will allow the Cupertino company to (finally?) offer customers what they seem to want: smartphones with really large displays.

Yeah... that's an awful design! And people complaint about Samsung Galaxy S5... Oh please. If that is the final design, it sucks big time!

Seriously. This "new design" looks so lazy and outdated at this point, it isn't even funny anymore....

I think they just want to keep their iconic design. So people can recognise the product instantly upon seeing it!

Yeah but it's already been used too much. They need to change it ASAP!

They could still slim it down a bit in keeping with their iconic design. They also shouldn't make it too thin and instead have a larger battery in there.

Dude, that is not the iphone 6 front plate, that's an iPhone 5s mockup to give you an idea of size. It says it on other sites. This is just to let people know that the next iphone is definitely bigger.

iPhone - king of bezels

well I agree that top and bottom bezels are huge still... But it really impresses me the width of the phone... having only 64mm when any other 4.7" screen phone is notably bigger... HTC ONE 2013 is 68 SGS3 is 70mm

This is a newer phone and it might have a silly resolution, as in not 16:9

It gonna have the same aspect ratio of my remote control.

Smaller width makes it again too narrow and small... Moreover if its narrow, itll look taller and awkward like i5/5s and the slightly tall m8.. sgs3 was apt...

I never said I like the design, I was only impressed by the size they managed to achieved... When I had the S3, it never felt comfortable in my hands because of its width... thats why I stick to 4.3"~4.5" phones now... but I would love to see a bigger screen paired to less than 67mm wide. (with normal 16:9 aspect ratio)

But it's narrower and taller than the HTC One X, which also had a 4.7" screen. That means it'll feel literally like a remote control, and that's not something I want with my phone.

Moto X has the same size screen, is 65 mm and much shorter than 137mm. Nothing impressive about this size. The Sharp phones have impressive dimensions though.

Well yeah I have been impressed by new Moto phones lately regarding their size / screen... the same way the Xperia ZL manage to put a 5" screen on that body... And Sharp phones do look awesome, specially being water proof... but sadly they only release in Japan... and Moto mostly release in US...

because it has a narrower screen, 16:10 instead of 16:9.

16:10 is, technically, WIDER, not narrower.

And they own those bezels

Yes can't wait. The biggest day of the iPhone since the iPhone.

longer iphone - add two more rows - the biggest innovation

Still better than leaving it at 4-inches!

I'm fine with it. WP8.1 has its own look, various Android OEMs have theirs so why not Apple? Granted, wallpapers are kinda useless on the iPhone since all those icons are in the way but it's all good. Adding more rows will make it pretty damn cluttered though...

That's the same design being used now for 4 years, starting with the iPhone 4. Apple need to step it up in the design department.

Go and tell that to your beloved company...since all high end lumias look same... I dunno why people complain about others when their fav oem is doing the same thing...and they're okay with it.... Btw I'm not a apple fan or nokia hater...

So you're telling me that the Lumia 930 and the Lumia 920/1020 look the same? Boy, you need to get your eyes checked.
