Latest Apple iPhone 6 leak purportedly shows another schematic, chassis mold and more
It is that time of the year when rumors about the next Apple iPhone start flooding out. Last year, the theme was plastic casings as many leaks revolved around the Apple iPhone 5c. This year's theme might be schematics. We recently showed you images of what allegedly was a schematic for the Apple iPhone 6, and today we have another leaked schematic, this time from a Sina Weibo account. The schematic purportedly came from someone working for contract manufacturer Foxconn, and shows a thin body with chamfered edges, a design that Apple has been using on recent products. 

Another picture shows what once again is purportedly the Apple iPhone 6, this time seen on a CAD program in 3D. A couple of other pictures reveal what might be the actual chassis mold for the iPhone 6 casing. Unfortunately, we can't tell what the size of the screen is on the device drawn in the schematic, or seen diagrammed on the CAD program. And the mold doesn't offer an easy way to determine the screen size, either. While the CAD screen and the pictures of the mold also are rumored to have originated from Foxconn, keep in mind that there is the possibility that these images are not legitimate.

KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo, who has a solid connection to Apple, expects to see a 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 launched late in the third quarter. He also expects to see a 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet released around the middle of the 2014 holiday shopping season.
