New iPhone 6 photos allegedly show the real device next to the iPhone 5s

New iPhone 6 photos allegedly show the real device next to the iPhone 5s
The iPhone 6 leaks series continues today, about 72 hours before Apple will finally put an end to all this madness by officially announcing the new smartphone.

Thanks to someone in China, we can now take a pretty good look at what is - reportedly - a real 4.7-inch iPhone 6 photographed next to an iPhone 5s

This iPhone 6 appears to be a 64 GB model running iOS 8.0. It’s got a round, dual-LED True Tone flash on the back, and a display that seems to be capable of hosting six rows of icons on the home screen - which suggests that its rumored 750 x 1334 pixel resolution may be accurate. The new handset looks a tad thinner than the 5s (which, at 7.6mm, is quite thin itself).

While there are no details in the photos seen below to suggest that this is a fake iPhone 6, we also can’t be 100% sure that it’s the real thing. However, to prove that what we have here is an Apple-made device, the user who posted the new images also uploaded a short video showing how he unlocks the alleged iPhone 6 with Touch ID. The video cannot be embedded, but you can find a link to it at the end of this article. Said video is now on YouTube:

Am I the only one who likes the design of the iPhone 6? More than the predecessors.

I don't like the lines on the back. I hope Apple is not going for them.

They are gonna keep them, because those lines are there to improve reception.

I know that these could be for antenna reception. I still hope they just represent cut out areas for the glass inserts. If they are antenna related I hope they make them slimmer.

Sorry, but this is the real deal for the latest iToy. Jony must have been drinking when he approved the design for this iToy.

If this was the right deal, why did the leaker only post so few photos and a short video not? There is something fishy here.

If that is legit that iPhone 4.7 will be taller than Z3c who is just 4.6 . By that I mean way taller. Now they're gonna say its just the right screen size. Amazing.

I think it's just Apple, making sure they stay King of the Bezels. O.o

Steve's spirit is seething over product leaks. Leaks like these never occurred during his time at Apple. He would have cancelled the contract for next year's production with Foxconn if a leak like this had occurred.

If he cancelled the contract with Foxconn then where would he go??? To grave probably...

Pegatron? Or, another contract manufacturer. There are alternatives. Look what happened with the move to TSMC for the A8 SoC.

Even iPhone 4 leaked (Engineer lost one iPhone 4 at a bar story) before Steve jobs announced it. Sh*t Happens. And these days people are getting so much money for these leaks and Everybody is interested in leaks. Thats why leaks and rumours are coming in loads recently.

Look at the response that occurred trying to shut the story down. Do you see anything of a similar level of intensity this time around?

"Leaks like these never occurred during his time at Apple." Also iPhone sales like this never occured during his tíme at Apple. It's simple, you can't just put 70 millions phones (iPhone 6) under wraps as easilly as 10 millions (iPhone 4).

the 5s was leaked with similar lines on the back .. then apple kinda masked these lines and I guess it'll be the same for the iphone 6 too

They're going to be filled in. Silver will have white, grey will have the dark grey, and gold will have white at top and bottom of the phone.

Maybe. Maybe not. I am suspecting the width of the bands is based on signal output and the energy needed to produce a given signal output - wider bands separating metal chassis components require less energy for a given signal level. In any event, we will know what is really a-happening soon enough.

I hate the back. But the sides are better. Front is just very similar looking.

It looks very similar to the other iToys, so yet another reason to think this is the real deal.

Now its down on par with 95% of the Android market. =) Only reason I own a Nexus is because most other Android phones are hideous. Most, not all.
