Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s upcoming iPhone 6 is rumored to be a phablet and the latest purported set of images compares the future phone to the current iPhone 5S. This claim actually came from French tech site Nowhereelse.fr and was posted on Chinese tech site iFanr.
The latest report mirrors previous reports
This current report is on par with the rumors we’ve been hearing about Apple expanding the size of the iPhone to compete with Samsung and other Android phone makers. The leaked images also show a phone that is a little bit wider than its predecessors. It also appears to have a thinner bezel.
It is predicted to include an updated A-series process for better battery life and overall improved performance. The glass part of the design offers the suggestion the front facing camera will be moved to the left side of the call speaker.
4.7-inch iPhone 6 hands on:
Another interesting note to point out is there has been numerous rumors Apple would release two versions of the iPhone 6 including a 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch. The upcoming phone is also expected to have a complete redesign starting with a larger screen. Several mockups of the phone claim the lock button has been moved to the upper right side and will feature pill-shaped volume buttons.
leaked images of iPhone 6’s internal cables
Another recently leaked image of the upcoming iPhone 6 shows an internal look of the purported phone. This report comes from Apple.club.tw which uncovered three images found on imgur.com. These photos show two internal components from the iPhone 6. The first component is a cable that holds the volume and mute buttons while connecting them to the main board. The second component is a separate cable which holds the power button. Interestingly enough, all the aforementioned buttons were located on just one flex cable for the iPhone 5S. This only leads further speculation the power button will be on the side rather than the top of the iPhone 6.
