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.

Retro..lol man, you have way more patience than me. I just don't understand the problem here at all. We're speaking in the same language but something is getting lost.

I think a lot of it is, the iPhone crowd doesn't really grasp that smartphones are basically personal computers. They're talking about these as if they are "phones" still and describing them as such.

For every hour I spend on my "phone", I probably spend 5+ consuming media or playing games or doing whatever.

Would you hook up a 7" monitor to a Windows PC? Hell no. So why would you question why phone displays are ever-growing? They're computers!

I dont know what this guys mental block is. He comes in every article complaining that phones are getting too large. Then people like you and I and others tell him it is what most people want and that options exist for a reason - he dives into a bunch of personal reasons why he personally doesn't like it, then he accuses us of attacking people that want small phones? WTF? We are just explaining why, and that he can still get a small phone. There is the iPhone 5c and 5S, there are many small SP phones, and Androids as well. Tons of them.

Lets take the phone out of this ritual since you cant seem to see clearly on that subject... So lets do a hypothetical... Say most of us all drove small compact economy cars. Then one company starts making bigger and bigger cars and even SUV's and people liked it, so they sell well. Years later other manufacturers are all making large cars and SUV's as well as compact cars. Even long time industry holdouts are getting on board releasing SUV's (like Apple above)... Now these companies still make compact cars, but they make SUV's too, and because most people want the SUV's that is what gets alot of press, so that is what the auto makers concentrate on... Now here you are complaining every single time a new SUV is announced. Explaining that its all "gimmicks" and "Bragging rights" going on and on about it, getting into arguments left and right with anonymous strangers because you don't like the fact that Auto makers are making too many SUV's... Even though it has been explained to you 1000 times, they still make compact cars and you can buy one right now today. What is the hell are you all up in arms about? Just buy the one you want.

So where did I say I wanted a 4" phone? Or is it one of those instances where you put your words in my mouth? Yep, sounds like the latter, doesn't it?

There you go again, closing your ears and claiming I'm a luddite just because I don't agree with you. Keep saying that and maybe it'll stick!

Or is it that you can't accept some of us wanting smaller phones? Judgmental pricks.

Both of you claim "go buy the phone you want"... and then say "get with the times, man!" How contradictory and hypocritical.

"There you go again, closing your ears and claiming I'm a luddite just because I don't agree with you. Keep saying that and maybe it'll stick!"

BTW, I explained why I think you are a luddite. Pay attention.

A) you cant follow a conversation and are arguing all over the place.
B) You are ignoring facts and getting confused as to what is being said to you
C) you cant grasp the simple concept that the market drives the OEM's to make larger phones , it's not the OEM's driving the market. That isnt how commerce on planet Earth works.

Dont see "disagrees with my preference in phone size" or anything like it in there.

Really, how old are you? I feel alot like I am arguing with my 10 year old daughter. Your just not able to reason like an adult on this subject.
