Tech Specs for iPhone 6 Confirmed in Leaked Documents

Share this:

Apple is expected to reveal two new iPhones again this year in September.  The first one, the iPhone 6, will have a 4.7″ display and be the successor to the iPhone 5s. The second phone, the iPhone 6L, will have a 5.5″ display and be a larger version of the iPhone 6.  A new document from inside Foxconn, one of Apple’s suppliers, confirms the technical specifications for each of the phones.  This photo, which was originally posted by French website iGen, also confirms the protruding camera rumor that AppleClub posted about recently.

The tech specs for both iPhone models are leaked in this picture.

The 4.7″ iPhone 6 (code-named N61) will measure 138.1 mm long by 67 mm wide and 6.6mm thick. The 5.5″ iPhone 6L (code-named N56) will measure 158.1mm long by 77.8mm wide and 7.1mm thick with a weight of 184.6g.  These specs do not take into account the protruding camera.  The final model, the N51, is the code name for the iPhone 5s. It measure 123.8 mm long by 58.6 mm wide and 7.6 mm thick.  This leaked document shows that not only will the next-generation iPhones be getting taller, but they will be wider too.

Both Variants of iPhone 6 Batteries Show Larger Capacity

Share this:

One of the most requested features of the next-generation iPhone is a larger battery so the phone can have a longer battery life.  Samsung calls iPhone users “wall huggers” since the iPhone require more charging with heavy usage.  The Galaxy S5 also has a new power saving mode that can extend the battery for days.  New pictures came out recently which suggest the next-generation iPhone will have a significantly larger battery capacity.  These 4.7″ iPhone 6 battery pictures were originally posted by Nowhereelse.fr and the 5.5″ iPhone 6 pictures were posted by Apple Daily.

New Photos Show iPhone 6 Front Panel, Logic Board, Sleep/Wake Button and More

Share this:

As the iPhone 6 gets closer to being mass produced, more parts will leak that show us details about the phone.  Over the past two days, crucial internal components were posted online in pictures that confirm many preexisting rumors.  On Wednesday, Taiwan’s AppleClub blog uploaded pictures of the iPhone 6 logic board and Feld & Volk, a luxury iPhone vendor, showed off the front panel, sleep/wake button, mute switch and SIM card tray on Thursday.

Earlier this month, I posted about pictures that showed us bare logic boards for both the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6.  It gave us a general idea of where each component would fit on the board.  Since the above picture is of a fully-assembled logic board, we can see where each of the components actually belong.  While we can clearly see that the flash storage chip was made by Toshiba, the WiFi module and A8 processor are hidden underneath electromagnetic shielding.  It would have been great to see these two components since they are rumored to be getting significant upgrades.

We Finally See Proof of the 5.5" iPhone 6

Share this:

After weeks of only seeing parts for the 4.7″ iPhone 6, new pictures were found online that show a key component in two sizes for the next-generation iPhones.  The part is the main circuit board (PCB) and it is home to the WiFi module, LTE modem and other important chips.  The pictures were originally posted on Nowhereelse.fr from an unnamed source in China.

Amazon.com in Japan Shows iPhone 6 For Sale

Share this:

We are still two months away from Apple’s official iPhone 6 announcement, but that doesn’t stop websites from selling accessories for the new iPhone or selling the rumored device.  Amazon.com in Japan lists the iPhone 6 for sale on its website, with detailed specifications and the worldwide release date. It appears that Amazon has taken down the listing, but not before valuewalk.com could take a screenshot.

According to Amazon, this model of the iPhone 6 is the 4.7″ variant with 64GB of storage, comes in gold and iOS 8 is pre-installed.  It is also 5.1 inches tall by 2.56 inches wide and .27 inches thick (7mm).  The price, however, is substantially higher than any of the previous generations of iPhones.  The phone is listed as 139,999 Japanese yen (or $1380 USD).  The 64GB iPhone 5s is available for 64,800 yen (or $637 USD).  So this is likely not the real price for the phone, if this is indeed a legitimate listing. Finally, it claims the phone will be in stock on September 30, which is a few days after the release date that was leaked by Tencent and Deutsch Telekom. So if you are in the market to buy the iPhone 6 right now, I would skip Amazon and find some other place that has the phone for cheaper or just wait two months.

While the larger iPhone 6 may have been pushed back until 2015, the 4.7″ iPhone 6 is still on schedule to be announced in September.  Lately we have seen many pictures of leaked parts, like the rear casing and front panel, but now we have a better look at how big the phone will actually be.  New pictures were uploaded to MyDrivers, which is a Chinese gadget blog, that show the front panel of the 4.7″ model compared to the iPhone 5s.

Leaked Internal Components for iPhone 6 Confirm Some Rumors

Share this:

The iPhone 6 is expected to have a design different that past models, including a curved display, a larger screen and a relocated Sleep/Wake button.  On all of the mockups we have seen so far, the larger screen and relocated Sleep/Wake button have been confirmed.  Recently, it was pointed out that the mockups aren’t entirely true and are flawed when it comes to some of the device’s design.  New leaked internal components for the actual iPhone 6 confirm that the Sleep/Wake button will be relocated, likely to the right side like the mockups show.  The pictures showing the internal parts was originally picked up by Apple.club.tw when they were discovered on imgur.com.
