Apple iPhone 6 leaks out again: this time compared against the iPhone 5

Apple iPhone 6 leaks out again: this time compared against the iPhone 5
There’s so much smoke about an upcoming iPhone 6 with a larger, 4.7” display (and another one to follow soon after, with a 5.5” display), that there must be fire. These latest images of Apple’s new iPhone darling have surfaced in China, adding even more to that thick cloud of smoke, and this time, they are coming from Taiwanese celebrity Jimmy Lin, the same man who also showed a pre-release iPhone 5 to the world earlier.

In the images, you can clearly see a larger-than-before iPhone 6 portrayed alongside the 4-inch iPhone 5. The new iPhone also has different, much more iPad mini-inspired looks - with curvier edges, similarly styled speaker and overall form. Two very noticeable strips of plastic with a contrasting white color appear on the top and bottom, and are likely there to help with reception.

Apart from that, Jimmy Lin who published the image, shared his first-hand experience, noticing that the iPhone 6 indeed rocks a 4.7” display, but has a good grip; it has the power button on the right side, and no built-in antenna outside.

Along with those images, another batch of leaks shows just the aluminum shell of the upcoming iPhone 6. Take a look at them all right below, and feel free to share your opinions about this new style: do you like it?

Bad lighting, preproduction dummy.

I hope this is not the final design because I think that the side-bezels are still too large. If Apple works for years on a design, one can expect more --> thinner side-bezels. Top and buttom bezels are alright from my point of view.

I think it is fake. Have a closer look at the edges of the screen panel where it is about to touch the corpus. It looks like a plastic attachment scaled to fit the "phone's" corpus. That is not the real deal.

They don't work for years on a design. They wait until other companies make a nice design, plop that into an iPhone, make the screen half the size, and then later sue the companies they copied.

That dude is a apple's factory worker. And iPhone 10,000,000,000s will have same design language. That's my prediction. Note it.

Hell yeah. I was just going to say aluminum back with white polycarbonate inlays for the antenna? Rip off. Wow with this back and the 4.7" screen it just seems like Apple ripped off the design of the One M7......

Took design from HTC make their phone even uglier/more expensive than EVER

62. bob_monkeywarts unregistered

Sorry, HTC. You weren't doing so well, and now Apple is going to sue you. Apple copied the Samsung f700, and now they sue Sammy about once a month. If Apple copies HTC, then Apple would sue HTC, and there goes HTC. That's a bummer, because HTC's actually pretty good with Sense UI and the M8.

The back looks like a fugly mix of the iPod Touch and HTC One Also those huge bezels make it look quite dated IMO

The top and the bottom ones are still there not that it matters, I never really had a problem with bezels, they are all pretty small these days.

I hope Apple would RAID HIS HOME and take all his crap like they did to that other journalist. So how stupid people are for leaking items funny in a way they raid people's home
