We now have our best look yet at the iPhone 6 until Apple officially launches the device onSeptember 9th. Russia-based YouTuber Rozetked has put together what appears to be a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 (hands on footage of the 5.5-inch model went online this morning) with several of the leaked components that we’ve seen all over the web the last several months. The comparison shows both black and white front plates, along with a space gray rear shell. The video compares the design to the existing iPhone 5s and gives a very close look at the overall design aesthetic. You can find the video along with some more still photos below:
The Apple iPhone 6 are starting to pour in frantically as the launch event nears. The latest one clings to the September 9 announcement date instead of the September 19 one and complements the statement with a list of the specs and a ton of pictures of the phone itself and the retail box.
By now we’re tired of repeating this but here goes – take these with a grain of salt as they could be just a clever hoax or a dummy unit or just a pre-production hardware that has differs from the final units.
There are enough clues in the images above to suggest this as just another fake device or phone with Android software made out to mimic Apple’s iOS. For starters the Calendar icon looks fake. Second the hardware looks awfully unpolished with a plastic-looking front panel and a protruding camera lens on the back and the single LED flash.
The source of the images has put forth some specs along with the hardware images. As we went through them we saw nothing new – a 4.7″ display of 960 x 1704 resolution, 2GB of RAM and dual-core 2GHz processor inside a 64-bit Apple A8 chip, 8MP camera with 1080p@60fps video recording, the lot.
The torrent of images and rumors isn’t slowing down, so it’s up to you to choose what to believe until Apple introduces the real thing on stage.
The highly anticipated 5.5” Apple iPhone 6 might feature more powerful hardware than its 4.7” sibling. The word got out from an analyst report to investors obtained by Appleinsider, citing Asian supply chain checks.
The 5.5” iPhone 6 is tipped to pack a more powerful application processor than the 4.7” model. Reportedly, the larger model will ship with larger die.
The abovementioned setup suggests that the phablet’s internal architecture will be different that the one found in the more compact model. More GPU cores are likely candidates to fill the extra space.
In addition to having a beefier chipset than the 4.7” model, the 5.5” iPhone 6 is also rumored to come with a different touch module. This unconfirmed bit falls in line with past report, which suggests that the larger iPhone device will tote a sapphire display, while the 4.7” model won’t.
The 5.5” Apple iPhone 6 is rumored to launch in December. The 4.7” model on the other hand, is expected to debut next month.
Taiwanese singer/actor/race driver Jimmy Lin posted photos of himself holding the yet-unannounced iPhone 5c last year and now he’s back with the new iPhone 6. We’ve seen plenty of leaks of the iPod Touch-inspired iPhone, but given Mr. Lin’s track record these images are some of the more credible ones.
Lin confirms the 4.7″ screen for the Apple iPhone 6 and notes that the antennas are still external. The new rounded corners improve the grip but the matte aluminum finish may be slippery.
To compensate for the taller device, the Power key has been moved on the right side. Also, it seems that Apple will be abandoning its dual-LED flash.
Unfortunately, there are no technical details about the phone so we still don’t know the resolution of the 4.7″ screen.
According to info from Foxconn there will be a 5.5″ iPhone too.
New photos of an alleged ‘iPhone 6‘ dummy unit surfaced this afternoon. The images depict a device that is noticeably larger and thinner than the current iPhone 5s, with rounded corners, and an overall design that matches up with previous information.
There’s no word on where the physical mockups came from, and there’s obviously no way to determine their validity. But our friends over at Nowhereelse.fr say that the snapshots were published by a long-time member of a well-known Chinese forum…
Nowhereelse.fr’s Steve Hemmerstoffer has more on the photos:
Published by a member of a well-known Chinese forum indiscretions cabbage lovers , the three photos that I propose to examine in this article are meant to introduce the physical model of one of the future iPhone rumored ad with a lot of leaks for several months already . Prototype for reference molding to prop in mobile telephony. Silicone skin cases that I presented earlier this month (read: iPhone 6: New hulls stock … ) have also been designed using a prototype of the same kind .
Again, the dummy unit matches up with many of the leaked cases, renders and other intel we’ve seen up until now. Note the elongated volume buttons and the rounded flash on the rear of the device (below) — both of which were mentioned in previous reporting.
Unfortunately, the device’s measurements weren’t made available and there are few points of reference in the photos to try to make any sort of guess. It’s believed that Apple is building two new models: one with a 4.7-inch display, and one with a 5.5-inch.
Other alleged details we’ve heard about the handset so far include a higher resolution display panel, a faster A8 processor, 1GB of RAM and an improved 8MP camera. It’s also believed that the phone will feature new types of sensors for tracking various data.
Apple is excepted to unveil the iPhone 6 at a media event some time in September. The 4.7-inch model is said to be going into production next month, with the 5.5-inch beginning a few months later due to manufacturing delays caused by Apple’s in-cell tech.
