The information leaks continue when it comes to the iPhone 6

Apple definitely isn’t the only game in town when it comes to smartphones, but the fervor surrounding each upcoming iPhone release definitely eclipses smartphone launches from other manufacturers. In keeping with that tradition, physical 3D models of the device compared to the current flagship iPhone 5s along with supposed schematics of the upcoming iPhone 6 have been leaked to the internet.
 
The physical mockups of the iPhone 6 show a device that is thinner, wider and taller than the iPhone 5s – the mockup measure in at 5.43” long, 2.63” wide, and 0.27” thick. Whereas the iPhone 5s has more hardened edges, the iPhone 6 has “softer” curves reminiscent of the original iPhone.


 
The latest mockup also clearly shows the repositioning of the lock button from the top of the device to the right hand side. Given the iPhone 6 is quite a it taller than the iPhone 5s, the new button placement will allow users to more easily power on/off the device one-handed.

 
One thing to note, however, is that the mockup doesn’t appear to show provisions for the dual-LED camera flash as seen on the iPhone 5s.
 
Also leaked over the weekend from Feng.com were 3D design schematics for the iPhone 6. The schematics match up nicely with the physical mockups, so either this is very close to the final design for the iPhone 6 or someone really has a lot of time on their hands to fake all of this leaked information.

 
The iPhone 6 is said to feature a 4.7” display (with a much higher resolution than the existing 1136x640 iPhone 5s), A8 processor, 802.11ac wireless, and hopefully LTE-A support.

Just because it doesn't cater to a particular person's needs doesn't mean this move just opened up a lot of doors from them.

It's 2014 but there is finally a 1080p iPhone with a decent screen size.

Technically, no, there isn't. Nothing has been announced officially yet. Only the rumor mill and blogosphere.

OK, granted its not out yet, but this is not just a rumor... You cant hide from the supply chain at this late of a date. Especially for something that will be made in the 10's of millions. These parts that go into phones all need to be pre-ordered, staff hired and production ramped up. We are talking 10's of thousands of people mobilized on the supply chain. The larger screen iPhone is a done deal, not a rumor. Just an unannounced product that will definitely be here.
