Rear Shell of 5.5" iPhone 6 Shown Off in Video

Share this:

Although it is expected that Apple is working on two models of the eight-generation iPhone, likely called the “iPhone 6″, only one will be available in September.  The smaller phone with a 4.7” display will apparently be announced on September 9th at Apple’s confirmed media event, while the one with a 5.5″ display may be delayed.  We have seen a lot of evidence for the smaller device, but not that much for the larger one.  This may confirm that it won’t be available for a couple of months.  Nowhereelse.fr shares a new video with us that shows the rear shell being displayed for the 5.5″ iPhone 6.

The blog claims that the larger iPhone will be called the “iPhone Air” and not “iPhone 6” or the rumored name “iPhone 6L”.  This phone will likely have similar specs to the 4.7″ model, but it will be much wider, taller and have more internal room.  This would allow for a larger battery, the rumored sapphire display and definitely a higher price.

When the iPhone 6 finally comes out, you will have a choice between two sizes for the phone.  The 4.7″ version has a display that is less than an inch larger diagonally than the iPhone 5s and 1.2″ larger than the iPhone 4s.  The 5.5″ version will be a much larger device with the screen size adding 1.5″ to the iPhone 5s and 2.0″ to the iPhone 4s.  For comparison, Samsung Galaxy S5 has a display size of 5.1″ and as shown in the video below, both the OnePlus One and LG G3 will have the same display size as the larger iPhone 6.

The biggest problem with the 5.5″ iPhone 6 shown in the video is that it is just a stretched out iPhone.  The phone towers over other devices that have the same screen size, the bottom has more surface area even though the mockup has the same layout as the other iPhone 6 and the back looks freakishly huge.  Apple has a high attention to detail and cares about the design of their products so they would never release a stretched out iPhone.  They will either decrease the bezel size, add more features or do something for their customers to make them more interested in purchasing the 5.5″ version (and not just because it has a larger display).

Current rumors suggest that we will be seeing both versions at the keynote in September.  They will likely be announced together along with the release date for iOS 8.  Deutsch Telekom, two months ago, leaked the release date for the iPhone 6 and even though it hasn’t been confirmed, we should expect the phones around September 19.

TechSmartt released a new video of them comparing the dummy models for the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 against the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and LG G3 smartphones.  These models have the same design that we have been seeing for months: slimmer body, curved edges, Touch ID, relocated Sleep/Wake button and more.  The video is embedded below:

As seen in the video, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 is larger than the Galaxy Note 3 in terms of height and larger overall when compared to the LG G3.  Both sizes of the iPhone 6 are expected to come out in September alongside iOS 8.

Fully Assembled iPhone 6 Leaked

On Wednesday, two new sets of images were leaked for the iPhone 6.  The first set of pictures were leaked by DreamerJimmy on Weibo.  The pictures show a fully assembled iPhone 6 compared next to the rear of the iPhone 5 and front of the iPhone 5s.  The rear of the phone shows the three-piece design we have seen on every other mockup, a circular flash and slightly protruding camera.  The front shows Touch ID, a smaller bezel and a larger FaceTime front camera.  The larger spot for the camera may mean that Apple will be upgrading it.

Here are the latest iOS rumors from this past week:

Dummy Model for iPad Pro Surfaces

In addition to two new larger iPhones, Apple is expected to update its iPad lineup with the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro.  This larger tablet has been rumored for a while and may have a release date in late 2014 or early 2015.  Nowhereelse.fr found pictures on Weibo, a Chinese micro-blogging site, that claim to be an aluminum dummy model of the iPad Pro.  There is no way to confirm if the picture is legitimate or the size of the model.  The rumored size is 12.9 inches, which is high above the 9.7″ iPad Air and a little below the 13″ MacBook Air.  The picture shows the Apple logo facing the correct direction for an iPad; on computers the apple’s leaf is facing on the longest side.  Also, there is an indentation for a camera on the top left and microphone on the top center.    The iPad Pro is rumored to feature the A8 Processor, an ultra-high definition Retina display and have the same design as the iPad Air.

Based on the mockups we have seen recently for the 4.7″ iPhone 6, we have a general sense of what it will look like.  The other iPhone rumored to appear this year, the 5.5″ iPhone 6, hasn’t really gotten too much attention.  Two groups of pictures have made their way online; one shows a case for both iPhones and the second shows a dummy model compared to the iPhone 5s.  We have included all the pictures below for a quick analysis:

Nowhereelse.fr has been an essential part of this year’s iPhone lineup.  They have posted numerous photos of mockups and cases and here they are at it again with pictures of cases for the 4.7″ iPhone 6 and 5.5″ iPhone 6.

Based on the picture above and other leaked information, the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be 138 mm by 67 mm and the 5.5″ iPhone 6 will be 157 mm by 81 mm.  The design of both cases look exactly the same, with the vibrate/mute switch being on the top left, the rumored volume rockers below it and the relocated sleep/wake button now on the right.
