The much-anticipated next generation iPhone from Apple, expected to be called the iPhone 6
, has been making a number of online appearances thanks to some alleged dummy models being compared
with other handsets like the iPhone 5
, Samsung Galaxy S5
and Galaxy Note 3
Now a new set of images posted on Twitter claim to reveal the alleged 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 dummy models. Sonny Dickson, the Australian teen who made a name for himself by repeatedly leaking images of Apple's iPhone 5s before its release last year, has now posted a couple of alleged images of Apple's next generation iPhone devices.
It's worth noting that this is the first time both the rumoured iPhone models (Apple has for a while been rumoured to be making 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants of the iPhone) have been pictured side-by-side together. However, there is no way we can check the credibility of the images.
The purported leaked model images of the iPhone 6 variants corroborate what's has been widely expected based on earlier leaks, that the iPhone 6 will take design cues from Apple's current generation iPod touch. The leaked images again suggest that the next generation iPhone would come with curved edges.
The front leaked image of both the models show slim bezels and the home button placed below the display. The smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model appears to include a gold-coloured rim around the home button, similar to the one found on the iPhone 5s. The leaked image of the rear panel indicates that the iPhone 6 handsets will sport a metal chassis, with the rear camera and flash placed at the top left corner.
Notably, the leaked image of the rear panel of both the alleged iPhone 6 models does not include the customary Apple logo, which does indicate that the images might be of dummy models.
Further, in-line with earlier leaks, the purported images again show the power button positioned on the right panel of the device, instead on the top panel seen on current iPhone models. Meanwhile, the leaked rear dummy image by Sonny Dickson on Twitter account again tips slightly modified volume buttons, akin to the ones seen on the current generation iPod touch.
A recent report claimed that Apple's next iPhone would hit shelves on September 19. The Cupertino-based company has been rumoured to be testing a higher screen resolution of 960x1704 pixels on at least one of the two iPhone models likely to debut this year.
We remind readers however, that nothing is official yet, and that all such leaks must be taken with a pinch of salt.
