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.

RE: 4.7" Display? Really?

Yep, i want the 4.7", not the 5.5". The size looks like it should fit just fine in my pockets. I normally to wear fitted or tailored clothes so pockets can get tight.

I thought my Samsung Galaxy Nexus was the perfect size at 4.65 but I didn't like the build quality or the half-day battery life. When upgrade time comes, every phone was going for 5". iPhone was the only choice for a high end small phone. But 4" is too small.

The only thing I hate about this new design is the fact that it looks like an iPad Air or Mini Retina shrunken down. I like the edgy sides better.

I was thinking the same thing. Not a huge fan of all the roundedness. As someone who has in the past been pretty open of my dislike towards Apple, I have been a fan of the iPhone hardware since iPhone 4. If I could've gotten an iPhone 4+ with the Windows Phone OS on it, I would've been a happy camper, and happily spent the money for it. (There's a few people here probably cringing in their seat right about now)

I kind of like the rounded edges. Somewhat unique. The lack of sharp edges gives it kind of a more modern look, and it will make it easier to slide that "gargantuan phone" onto your pocket ;)
