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.

Have to definitely agree with you there as I am one of those you speak of.
Was happy with everything the iPhone was except the screen size. Went from iPhone 3gs to the Note 2 on release day, massive difference. No problem fitting N2 in pockets either don't see what all the fuss is about from apple users.
I will say this though, My next phone will be 5 inches and don't care what brand, I think it is the exact sweet spot in phone market and offers the best compromise. Over 5.5 inches may as well get a tablet pc and connect a phone, Under 4.5 inches then smart phone is useless for browsing anything, May as well buy a tiny flip phone.

I have a Note 3 which is 5.7" and a Nexus 7 and they do not compare at all, for general browsing the Note is good but the Nexus is MUCH better for everything. I love my Note but a 5.7" screen is not even close to the same as having a tablet. Hell my entire phone fits inside the screen of the Nexus with screen space still visible around it, the difference is huge and that is only the smallest of the tablets.
