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 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.

RE: 4.7" Display? Really?

I use a Nokia Lumia 920. It has a 4.5" screen @ 1280x768 resolution. It has never felt lacking.

An I-Phone @ 4.7" with 1080p res would put it close to Nokia Lumia 930/Icon specs (5" 1080p). A mild evolution of a very successful product.

5.5" and 6" screens are monsters and might end up alienating existing users ready to upgrade.

Yeah I use a Nokia Lumia 920 also. This mock of the new iPhone looks like a nokia lumia 925 though. Either way one of the reasons I left iOS was because of their boring UI and small screen size. This could actually be a game changer since the iPhone will properly sync my playlist.. If windows 8.1 doesn't get it together and their new flag ship isn't impressive I will be making a return to apple.

I think you'll be happy with WP8.1. I'm loving it (developers' preview). I'm even playing with Cortana a lot, though I was always saying I'll never talk with my phone.

Also Lumia 920, by the way. I'm finding 4.5" good size, but then again, my previous phones were iPhone 3Gs and 4s... so I wasn't hard to impress.

iOS. I used them all between iOS3 and iOS6. I moved to Lumia before iOS7, but I did play with it on my wife's iPhone 5s. Even with all the changes they have made with 7, it still feels... conservative. So I'm not considering to return to iPhone, not any time soon. But I'm sure a lot of people love that it doesn't change radically and it's very easy to move from old to new iPhone. Heck, my wife thought iOS7 is to much changed, and first week or two kept asking if we can "downgrade" her new iPhone to iOS6 :)

Options... There will be 4, 4.7 and 5.5 inch iPhones. No-one needs to be alienated, in spite of the uproar. Buy the one you want.
