Another week, another leak. And while the leaks keep changing according to the devices on offer, one company that stays fairly stagnant in this respect is Apple. And with all its rumors all round the week regarding the new iPhone 6, it will be long before all the rumors actually dry out.
Today, after months of rumors and speculations related the the 4.7-inch form factor of the new iPhone, a new report has emerged on the web showing off a new 5.5-inch model for the massively rumored smartphone. And this is apparently the first time the case of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model has been leaked in photos.
Recently, a couple of tweets from Australian blogger Sonny Dickson showed off comparison shots between the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and its larger model, boasting a 5.5-inch display. And needless to say, the 5.5-inch model is considerably larger than the 4.7-inch version.
As you may see, there is a noticeable difference between the two handsets, which are currently being thought as dummy models. And if indeed this picture is authentic, then confirmations won't be far off that Apple will be releasing two different versions of their new phone.
"This leak confirms many of the design discrepancies between the current models and the next-generation iPhones. For example, the volume buttons will switch from round to pill-shaped and the power/sleep button will move from the upper side of the phone to the right side, for easier access with one hand," Softpedia states.
"The camera module will gain a metal ring around the lens and the True Tone LED flash appears to be gone in the iPhone 6. The overall form factor is much slimmer and much wider and taller, but a few design elements will be ported over almost unchanged," it adds.
The report also states that the face of the phone could look almost identical to the iPhones that are currently available. "A strange hole appears in Dickson's photos near the FaceTime camera on the front of the 5.5-inch model."
We are not sure why that is so, but some think Apple might want to have a third mic on the front of the device. And that's quite unlikely.
