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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
