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.

I know tell me about it. My first smartphone was an iphone 4. Then I switched to t-mobile because their prices destroyed at&t's. Ended up with a better plan for 40 dollars less per month. T-mobile didn't have an iphone to offer. Got the galaxy s2 and it was a revelation. Bigger screens are sooo much nicer. After owning the s2 for quite awhile i got a galaxy note 2 and sure enough even bigger is even BETTER.

If apple releases a 5.5" iphone 6 I will probably give them another shot. As long as it is fully jailbroken and i can sideload whatever stuff i want for free. I love my rooted android and refuse to pay for apps and games.

Thanks kid, glad you're enjoying yourself. Just one thing to keep in mind whenever you become an adult: All the rooting software, ROM's, games, applications and even pirated apps were done by somebody using their valuable time and skills for benefit of people other than themselves.

Here's a question. What would iOS look like on a phone that big? Just more space between the icons?

Anyone that has used an iPad knows what I'm getting at. iOS's UI gets more stupid and ugly looking the bigger the screen gets. It's horrible!
