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.

Same here, and TBH, I am heavier than I was when I got these jeans, they are kind of tight... Still no issue with a Note2, or 3.

I mean, if you like a small phone fine, no one can tell you what you like, but don't use Jeans pockets as a reason to deprive yourself of large screen glory. If you cant fit a phablet into your pants, your pants are too damn tight, period.

Either that... or he's not american and prefers normal clothes instead of large clothes with huge pockets.

Try travelling abroad. You'll be surprised as how quick people are knowing that you're american just by taking a quick glance at you.

Seriously? Go to ANY store you shop at that sells ANY jeans... Now look at the rack and grab a pair of your favorite jeans and look at the front pocket - do this on several brands, any and all jeans... It is WAY bigger than any Phablet. If your phone isnt fitting in the pocket it isn't that the pocket is too small, its the fact that there is zero room in between your leg and the jeans because they are too tight. Slacks like you would have to wear at any "business casual" office are even larger in the pocket.

If wearing abnormally tight jeans is more important to you than your smartphone then by all means, get an iPhone. You probably already have one you giant narrow minded hipster douchebag. ;)

okay now it's clear, it fits because you wear grampa jeans.

I got over the whole wearing my pants tight enough that people could check out my package thing in the mid-80s. Phone size is not that big of an issue. After reading this thread, I decided to try to fit my wife's Playbook in my front pocket, and other than one corner sticking out, it fit. I wouldn't want to sit long with it there, but this is a 7 inch device. So I am sure any phone would fit there just fine.
