iPhone 6 cases leak, show 4.7- and 5.5-inch sizes

A set of iPhone 6 cases have been leaked online, showing the two potential sizes ahead of any official announcement.

Rumour has it that Apple will launch two variants of the iPhone 6 later this year, both featuring a new redesign with slimline body and curved edges.

From what we’ve heard so far, the first 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will be launched in September and then the larger screen 5.5-inch version will supposedly arrive a little later.

These sizes were tipped by a set of leaked schematics, which detailed the potential 6mm thick body.

The latest case leaks, spotted by BGR, shows the pair of iPhone sizes and apparently accurately represent the final designs of both models, although we are far from convinced.

The pink silicone case is intended for the 4.7-inch and the clear hard plastic version is supposedly for the 5.5-inch model.

In the photos below, the tipster has even provided an iPhone 5S for scale, as well as placing the cases next to items like water bottles and Starbuck coffee cups.

The 4.7-inch inch model is a little wider than iPhone 5S and noticeably taller thanks to the iPhone 6’s larger screen. The iPhone 5S has a 4-inch 1136 x 640p resolution display, so Apple will have to keep the phone’s bezels very slim in order to accommodate the larger screen without making the overall design much bigger.

At WWDC earlier this month, Apple launched iOS 8. The iPhone 6 is expected to be one of the first devices to run this new mobile operating system, which will introduce new functionality like the fitness tracking Health app, third-party keyboard and Touch ID support.

Currently iOS 8 has been scheduled for an autumn release, so it’s looking more and more likely the iPhone 6 will arrive in September, as per Apple’s usual launch timeline.
