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.

Its amazing with 4.7" screen and only 64 mm width. Z1 Compact has 4.3" screen and 69 mm width. But don't like the bezel on top and bottom. Apple should really change its design.

That is not going to happen.....as apple wants to maintain thin profile... Only sony has mastered it till now... That too in cost of overall smartphone size....

And I guess the design is good too. I mean Samsung keeps designing phones that look like their flagships and so does sony and nokia and many others. this creates an image for the brand, so i quite welcome the new 4.7" on a successful design.

I thought Apple was going to do better with the size. Oh well. There is still Google ang LG to save 2014 from being the year of the super bricks.

Well, we must take this with a grain of salt.. I just hope there's a phablet on the way ..

Even as a huge android fan I'm hoping they do something to shake up their current design outside of a size change. Please Apple, you are getting stale.

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.

I only saw 930 on photos so I'm not sure..but in photos it looks same... But all other high end lumias starting from n9(i know it's not a lumia) looks same....

And I've no problem with it.... It's just you fanboys complain about others when your company does the same thing...

All lumias look the same.. what? a different placement for camera and volume won't change this.. i only saw one lumia in my life and despite seeing all the pics of all lumias i couldn't tell which one it was ..

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...

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