Case leak reveals dimensions for 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet?
Out of France comes one of the first looks at a leak involving the large-screened Apple iPhone phablet. The device is actually called the Apple iPhone 6s according to the leak, which is based on a pair of cases allegedly designed for the Apple iPhone 6 and its large-screened brother. While the iPhone 6 case measures 138mm x 67mm, the iPhone 6s case shows dimensions of 157mm x 81mm. That is pretty much in line with the Nokia Lumia 1520. That 6 inch phablet is 162.8mm x 85.4mm).

The thickness of both devices would appear to be 7mm. That would allow both models to be thinner than the 7.6mm Apple iPhone 5s. Making the iPhone phablet so thin might make for a great looking handset, but it is making it hard for Apple to find a supplier for the kind of thin battery cell that the model requires.

While there have been various rumors as to when the iPhone phablet will launch, with some speculation that the phone won't see the light of day until next year, the latest rumor is that the 5.5 inch version of Apple's smartphone will be released in September.
