iPhone 6 frame supposedly leaked, but we’re not convinced

Images of what claim to be an iPhone 6 frame has leaked courtesy of some Chinese sources, but we’re not convinced it’s the real deal.

The iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C were only released in September, but that hasn’t stopped the iPhone 6 rumours from flooding in.

This purported image of the iPhone 6 casing is the latest to arrive, showcasing the larger screen and ultra-thin 2014 flagship.

These images are completely unverified and look pretty sketchy, so we’re rather sceptical that this is a real iPhone 6 body, especially as it looks as though it’s covered in tin foil.

If the images for some reason are real, it looks though Apple will launch an iPhone with a larger screen this year.

It should also have a super-thin body, akin to the Apple iPad Air. Some have suggested that Apple will adopt its new iPad naming system (stolen from its MacBook range) for the 2014 range of iPhones, with the iPhone 6 adopting the name iPhone Air.

If the body shown above is the real deal, it is certainly deserving of the Air moniker.

However, there are reasons to believe this isn’t an iPhone 6 at all. The headphone jack is located at the top, unlike with the iPhone 5, 5S and 5C models, and the edges have an odd roundness to them that doesn’t look very Apple to us.

Some have suggested it could even be a metal mid-plate for the Samsung Galaxy S5, but we’ll have to wait until its March/April release date to find out.
