New iPhone 6s photos show the handset's dimensions: this isn't the thinnest iPhone to date

New iPhone 6s photos show the handset's 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?

Hard to tell with such a blurry photo, but it looks to me like at least the camera bump is gone. I'll take a thicker phone 100 times out of 100 if it doesn't have a camera bump (ceteris paribus). Also, assuming that is the final product and not some mock-up (a mock-up which, upon actually reading the article, it appears to be...)

Camera bump isn't gone. The phone you see in the picture is only the two outer shells.

What can we deduce from it? GS7 will be thicker than GS6. You are copying it wrong, Sammy.

Right. In two years, Apple will launch a round watch.

Lmao this phone will outsell everything else by miles, that's the kinda epic fail companies love. What made you post a joke like that, and please explain it's inherent failure?

You were also in the Anti-Apple flock group until last year. You trolled apple articles sooo hard that PA limited your account for a month. All the trolling suddenly stopped after that. Don't pretend to be a guy that never trolled Apple article before and never been in the Anti-Apple flock group.

A9, 2 gigs of DDR4RAM, 12mp/5mp cameras, 7000 series metal, force touch, larger battery, possibly full multitasking. None of those start with an S, unless you spell "seven thousand"

Lol half of that isn't confirmed. In fact, the battery might be smaller which makes the size increase even more ludicrous.

You are an interesting individual you were the guy who used to praise the almighty iphone 6 blus and brag about the fact you bought it for yourself and your wife couple of times. At first you wouldnt admmit the fact note 4 was and still is a better phablet than iphone 6 plus and suddenly you bought it (correct if im wrong.) And started bashing apple afterwards cuz 6 plus wasnt just good enough and told us all that apple needs to step up there game. As soom as you knew when new apple phones are coming. you have started defending apple on every article again and dissing every guy who just doesnt like apple or does not have same thoughts as you. Unless an untill you have bought some shares in apple or the fact you profit from there top selling phones. I think you should know by now at this point instead of being neutral a guy who you claim to be you are just another hyper over excited apple lover and for some reason you think you are god of phones . Interesting individual you are ky friend .

Note 5, iPhone 6 plus. If the new iPhone is what I want specs/features, I'll sell my 6 plus and get it. There's nothing you can post that'll change that reality. I'll criticize Apple when it deserves it, and defend it when it deserves it. Oh, and just to let you know, my wife has the white 64 gig ,note 5, and I have the sapphire black, also in 64. The Note 4 was awesome, but not enough of an upgrade over the Note 3. IOS 7&8 have been completed headaches, there's also nothing you can post that'll change that reality either. No more of an interesting individual than anyone else, I just keep it real, and speak my mind. Can we say "OWNED"!

Sorry but all what Apple are doing this year they can easy of added last year, apart from ft thing, I.e. They got you to buy 2 phones that look the same, you need to be giving them an hard time

59. Luzifer unregistered

OWNED? Lols man you need grow up. Who said i was stopping you to speak your mind? Go ahead speak it. Note 4 was not enough of upgrade over note 3? That same sentence could be used for note 5 . But anyways dude you can act smart and tough sitting behind the computer/phone but it wont change the fact the way you talk you are a child and no point in having a nice logical discussion with you because for that you actually need to grow up and you still have almost 10 years more. so when you are mature enough to talk on any topic let me know .

And when Apple sells over 60 million iPhones this quarter, I guess that would be considered Apple failing too no?

Not Apple, just their customers.

Saying that while Apple poaches millions from Samsung Galaxy S devices in the last couple quarters makes me chuckle at your ignorance. Look at facts.

you believe this figures so naively...
