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.

iPhone 6 Event Rumored for September 9th

Share this:

Apple typically holds an event on a Tuesday in September to announce the next-generation iPhone and then launches it on the following Friday.  It appears that this year is no different.  According to Re/CodeThe Wall Street Journal and BloombergApple is planning on hosting a media event on September 9th to announce the new iPhone 6.  It is expected that the iPhone 6 will then launch on the following Friday, which is September 19th.

At the event, we expect that Apple will announce the completely redesigned 4.7″ iPhone 6. It will feature a slimmer body, curved edges, a more efficient A8 processor and improved camera.  The 5.5″ iPhone 6, however, may be delayed due to production issues so this might only be introduced to us or it may not be announced at all.  The company will give us a launch date for iOS 8.

The iWatch was originally rumored to be announced at this event, but due to production issues, it will wait until the iPad event in October.

 

We Finally See Proof of the 5.5" iPhone 6

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.

iPhone Air and iPhone 6 Coming in September

Share this:

Last year, Apple changed all the rules and introduced us to two new iPhones; the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c.  Although the 5c was only a less expensive variant of the 5s, it still was a completely different phone.  This year’s iPhone is expected to come in a 4.7″ and 5.5″ variant.  A new report from China.com says that both sizes of the iPhone will be announced on September 15th and launched on September 25.

Share this:

The news/rumor roundup has now been split into two posts, so here’s the latest rumors for this past week:

iPhone 6 Coming in August in 3 Colors

Every day there are new mockups of the iPhone 6 being posted online and now that you can print your own using a 3D printer, this won’t change until Apple announces the iPhone 6.  The latest mockup comes to us from 9to5Mac and shows the iPhone 6 in three colors: space gray, gold and silver.  The design of the next generation iPhone appears to be inspired by the iPod touch. A recent rumor also gave us the release dates for Apple’s new iPhones: 4.7″ iPhone 6 coming in August and 5.5″ iPhone 6 coming in September.  Due to production issues with the larger iPhone, it was rumored that the date would be pushed back.

iPhones have traditionally been introduced in the fall, like the iPhone 5/5s/5c in September and the iPhone 4S in October. In addition, many of the rumors we have heard suggest a September date for the 4.7″ iPhone 6 and production issues causing the 5.5″ iPhone 6 to be pushed back until early 2015.

Video Shows Dummy Mold of iPhone 6

4.7" iPhone 6 Front
Share this:

The French blog Nowhereelse.fr has been responsible for giving us the latest concepts for the iPhone 6 based on leaked images and rumors in addition to a new video they snagged from 86digi.com.  This video (below) shows a dummy mold of the iPhone 6, which seems to show exactly what all the rumors have been saying: slimmer device with a larger display, relocated Sleep/Wake button and elongated volume controls.  The phone shown in the video is claimed to be a mold of the 4.7″ iPhone 6 with a 6mm thin body.

The front of the mold shows a larger display with thinner bezels and a camera in a new location (appears to the right of the earpiece).  In the video, the top of the phone doesn’t show any spaces likely meaning the Sleep/Wake button has been relocated as rumored.  The button of the phone has the lightning port, headphone jack and similar holes like the iPhone 5c has for the speaker and microphone.  The device is not only very thin, but it also has curved edges.

iPhone 6 Front Panel Leaked

Share this:

Usually, leaked images for future Apple products come out as the expected announcement date comes closer.  Although no one has really agreed on a date for the announcement (June at WWDC, July or usual September), one thing is clear, we will see the iPhone 6 before the end of the year.  The alleged front display was leaked recently alongside the current iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5/5S display.

Front Panel Leaked (03/02/14)

iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 front panels

iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 front panels

The iPhone 6 front panel has no side bezels and shows a larger display.  GSMArena calculated the size of the display based on the two beside it to be around 4.3 inches.  This is smaller than the rumored size of the new iPhone (between 4.7″ and 5.5″). I do have some problems with this alleged iPhone 6 display.  First and foremost, is the size.  It is extremely smaller than the rumors and it is not a large enough jump from the iPhone 5/5s.  The absence of bezels of the side and slightly smaller bezels on top do increase the display, but there is little difference compared to the 5s.  Also, the Home button cut out is cutting into the touchscreen.  Apple has a huge attention to detail and the Home button is no longer positioned in the middle of the bottom bezel.  They will likely keep the Home bottom centered on the iPhone 6.  It looks like it was cut incorrectly or this is not actually an iPhone 6 front panel. I would take this picture with a grain of salt, it might be a display of the prototype, but likely not part of the iPhone 6 we will see in a few months.

This picture that was leaked in early February (credit: MacRumors) seems more legitimate than the leaked front panel.  The Home button is perfectly centered, the display looks larger, the device looks thinner and it appears to have a redesign. MacRumors also calculated this display to be 4.7″. Even if this picture is fake, it gives us a good idea of what the rumors are suggesting.

Final Note

On a final note, no one really knows what the iPhone 6 will look like, but I think we will find out real soon. Follow on Twitter for the latest rumors and on Facebook for daily tips for saving battery power.
