New iPhone 6s photos show the handsets dimensions: this isn't the thinnest iPhone to date
Next week, on September 9, Apple will announce two new iPhones, which are likely going to be called iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. While the two handsets won't look different from last year's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, they should be made out of a tougher aluminum alloy (7000 series), bringing various hardware and software improvements (including 12 MP rear cameras with 4K video recording, and 5 MP front-facing cameras). Moreover, it looks like the new iPhone models will be a tad thicker and larger than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

MacRumors received a few photos which show that the iPhone 6s (a unit "assembled from parts") measures 138.19 x 67.68 x 7.08 mm, thus being almost 0.2 mm thicker than the iPhone 6. The new iPhone is also barely taller and wider than the old model, which measures 138.1 x 67.0 x 6.9 mm. Of course, this will be very hard to notice in real life. Still, it looks like the iPhone 6 from last year will remain the thinnest iPhone ever - at least until 2016, when, who knows, perhaps Apple will launch a handset that's thinner than 6.9 mm. As for the iPhone 6s Plus, it's said that this is 7.3mm-thin, thus being 0.2 mm thicker than the iPhone 6 Plus.

Most probably, the new aluminum allow, and the implementation of Force Touch technology inside their displays are among the reasons why the new iPhones will be a bit thicker.

Both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus should be offered in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB storage capacities, for prices similar to those of last year's iPhones. So, who's planning to buy a new iPhone?
