New images show iPhone 6 with 4.7 and 5.5 inch screen

There has been a flurry of leaks concerning the unconfirmed iPhone 6. Many of these reports suggest that there will be models with two different screen sizes. The most recent leak was posted by Sonny Dickson and shows two models of the smartphone with varied screen sizes; 4.7 and 5.5 inch, respectively.

This leak backs up a previous report that suggested Apple's display supplier, Japan Displays Inc. would be manufacturing a 5.5 inch WQHD (1440x2560) screen that could be used in the unannounced smartphone. It also shows features that were leaked in earlier images, such as the placement of the power button on the right side which is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S5. Even though the back of the devie does not have the Apple logo, it will be engraved like all previous models. As for why these devices don't have the Apple logo, it's likely because they are early production runs to test the assembly process.

All of the leaks that have been coming out have been incredibly similar to each other. Even though these images have yet to be confirmed by Apple, it seems very likely that this could be how the final product will look. We also wouldn't hold our breath that Apple would provide a comment about the leaks seeing that they are trying to crack down on them.

Unfortunately, nothing can be kept secret these days by a select few individuals that seem to want to spoil the party for everyone.
It's almost unheard of now that when a big premier event to unveil a new model or product range happens, no-one knows what to expect and wait with baited breath.
Now I know that there are some that say it's good to have this sort of information so they can get busy creating 3rd party products like cases and the like to go with it, but I for one enjoy the not-knowing and looking forward to surprise when it occurs. And the only reason I've jumped on this thread is purely to say so too.
Alas, most websites now carry news of another leak or another image smuggled out of China or wherever they're made, and it's almost impossible to avoid it.
I think that the leakers need stamping out, preferably with harsh financial penalties in the courts. Make them think twice about doing it next time.

As if there was anything to spoil. It's THE SAME phone. It looks the SAME. It's just slightly bigger.

Also, the leaks are pretty much deliberate. Jobs managed to keep the lids on, what has exactly changed after his death except for Cook being the CEO?

hope this not true.
4 inch is perfect size for iPhone.
and can't they invent new design instead this old boring s***

Finally an up to date screen size, I may actually for the first time since about 2010 consider going back to iPhone. Can't wait to try a 4.7" model out

why Iphone go bigger like Samsung phone? oh wait it call copycat
Before trolling, I would check my sentence structure before hitting the "post" button.

After or Before they released it on apple/windows/linux??

If that was for me, before. Jobs didn't get to see anything before the stock and insurance arrangements were in place.

The_Observer said,
lol oh fanboys, you are all the same! BTW the only original design was Xerox PARC and there GUI, everyone else has copying them!

What makes you apple fanboys any different than any other Apple fanboy? All you guys do is drool at the mention of a new model which basically has gone unchanged since the iphone 4.

Come on now. Everyone drools over a new phone that their favorite manufacturer releases. It is not some special emotion that Apple fans have. Take a look in the future at Microsofts phone release articles and you'll see the same thing. Just saying!

b4 you make any statement about me , let me tell you this the true HURT YOU? lol

A little suspicious of the complete absence of any Apple logo or markings on the back for that gold iPhone up there. Otherwise doesn't look too bad.

Gergel7077 said,
Yuk!!! Sam old boring design. You think they could change it up a bit.

They did change it a bit and it's not the same.

Gergel7077 said,
If there are changes, other than size, it isn't enough to make a noticeable difference.

It's time to start thinking about phones like cars. They don't change much, they all need to have certain components like 4 wheels. Successful manufacturers like BMW come up with a certain look and you will always know the car is a BMW even if you have never seen that model before. Apple iPhone has a certain look and they are sticking with it, it's successful. Why mess too much with it?

JHBrown said,
....and how many times has Microsoft/Nokia changed their design?

Apple has had the same design for their iphone since 2010, at least 4 years. MS\Nokia has had their Lumia phone for about 2 years. Big difference. Plus the fact that Lumia designs aren't boring like the iphone design is.

Actually, the current design of the iPhone was introduced in late 2012, and the Lumia was introduced in late 2011. Anyways, I don't see how the age of a phone's design makes much of a difference. Each company has found a design...design language if you will...that they're known for and they're sticking with it.

And did you really just state an opinion as fact?

JHBrown said,

This comment makes me believe you have never looked at or touched a Nokia phone.

Even in just the WP8 generation, virtually every model are very different designs.

Just as a goof put the 820(822) and the 920 side by side. Similar specs, but very different designs from shape to even SD card and removable back.

Or even take put the 920 the 925 the 928 next to each other. Polycarbonate molded to Aluminum to new Polycarbonate case design, etc. (Even the smooth/matte finish difference of the 928 is more choice than you get from Apple.)

If you look at the 1320 or 1520 or the Nokia Icon compared to the previous generation, again they all have new case designs, different sizes etc.


I don't care if Apple ever changes their design, but to throw dirt on Nokia/Microsoft for failing to do something that they did is just wrong.

I've owned one, a 920. I've also played with all of them at the Microsoft Store here in Los Angeles. Next!

Gergel7077 said,

Because for me it's boring.

Are you an iPhone user? Have you had an iPhone before? Are you saying you won't get another iPhone or start using an iPhone because its 'boring'? How is the iPhone design any more 'boring' than the Galaxy S series of phones or the Lumia phones? What are you looking for to make a phone less 'boring'?

Not true. The iphone 4 (introduced in 2010) and the current iphone 5s have the exact same design. If you think a button move here and a slightly larger screen there constitutes design change then you are sadly mistaken. Nothing significant has changed. The reason I brought up the years is that after so many of them, people will begin to tire of it. Could you imagine if Apple had stayed with the same design today as they had when the original iphone came out? And you are correct about stating my opinion as fact. I should not have. But I can say that many people feel the way I do about the iphones boring design.

Spikes, and glitter. Well that is a change. Maybe it will go well with your high heels and man purse.

First off, I do not own an iphone. However, I work with iphones everyday at my job so I have many years experience with them.
Second, maybe it's because I work with them consistently since the iphone 4 to current models that I know what I am talking about when it comes to same boring design. When the iphone 4 came out it was a drastic change from the previous iphones. But that time has come and gone. The wow factor has faded away and now other companies with far more interesting designs have entered the market.
Third, I happen to think that Samsung phones are just as boring. But then again, I NEVER said anything about Samsung's design. I was talking about Microsoft\Lumias designs are far more colorful and pleasing to the eye. I also like HTC's designs with the M8 and Sony's Experia designs. The Sony's in particular are more a work of art. Far more exciting and aesthetically pleasing than the iphone design wise.

That reason is as valid as people saying they won't buy a Galaxy phone because it's plastic.

Gergel7077 said,

Yeah it should have been a triangle. Also have an app that builds me an island, then turns the phone into a jet and flys me there. I also want it to transform into a robot and be like POW PEW PEW PEW ZAAAAAAM.

Innovation failure.

front looks similar to samsung galaxy and back to htc one.

tbh - i dont like the design. i hope its not final.

Still undecided about those plastic breaks in the back. But I like the rounder and full metal design, may be more comfortable. My Lumia is kinda uncomfortable, those damn pointy corners! Also I hate side Power Buttons. How often do I need to press one? Not often enough that I need it where I grip so I can accidentally press it during use :/

To people claiming Apple are copying with screen size btw, I suppose when they increase the power of their CPU/GPU they are "copying" as well? Go back to 2007, was the iPhone not a mobile device with one of the (if not THE) largest screens? .... so everyone else "copied" right. Android fans eh, aren't they cute.

Also the iPhone screen size was "perfect" at that time, but peoples usage patterns have changed and the phone parts are taking more and more of a back seat. For Apple not to adapt would be retarded, for people to keep claiming they are back-pedalling is just silly. As if Apple imagined that 3.5" would be the best screen size from 2007 until the end of time >.> .... really people?

I think people would make less of a stink about this if Apple didn't make fun of all the other larger phones not really that long ago and claiming their screen size was ideal.

Stoffel said,

Why would people care? Apple "made fun" of larger phones...... and? It's not like they called your mother a ###### or something.

Let's be honest though. Some of those larger screen phones deserve being made fun of, I mean, 7" phones? It's getting ridiculous and you know it. All Samsung can do is rush to market any rumours that are doing the rounds about what Apple may do next (Smartwatch/Health focus etc) and make their phone screens bigger, and chuck in a notched up CPU and a bit more RAM. Bang. A new Galaxy.

Joswin said,

Really. And since that time people have grown larger hands? As that was their main argument - the 3.5" is "ideal" give the size of a human hand

Urm as in when it still needed to be a phone as a primary purpose....

When the iPhone was introduced, well, the mobile phone market was a very different landscape than it is today.

Umm, excuse me. Our S5, LG G2, Desire 601, and even my old Galaxy Nexus had centred cameras.

Or are they not "smart" manufacturers?

j2006 said,
Nokia/Microsoft seem to be the only smart manufacturer to put the rear camera on the center.

Samsung, LG, and HTC all have their flagship models with camera in the center.

Pluto is a Planet said,
When you hold your phone, does your hand cover the center of your phone? Turn your phone on its side. How about now?

if I turn my lumia 625 on its side to take pics I will hold the sides of the phone and not cover the back

BBinder said,

And if you hold it upright? The idea is, having the camera not in the center is the only way to satisfy both of those positions.

Allwynd said,
whats the deal with the back camera never being in the center?

Because center location is reserved for displaying the fruit.

I still think 3.5"/4" is the right size for a phone. I'd never go bigger than 4.3". These days the only high end phones with those screen sizes are the iPhone 5/5S and Z1 Compact. I really hope Apple don't drop the 4" display as I feel they will lose customers who like the phone for its size.

Surely you'll be able to pay big $$$ for an coloured 6S that's basically the 5S! And you'll get lied 'Premium' branded for you tiny 4" 2007 Smartphone! Apple fans will drove!!!

*yawn*

Not sure why so many people go ga-ga about early case images of any phone before it is revealed by the manufacturer. It will always be a rectangle with rounded corners, screen and have some buttons somewhere on the edges... same as the last phone. The only ones that should care about the case is the designers that are going to make something that the phone goes into... and they can usually get the measurements ahead of the release.

It is the internals that make the difference in speed and performance. The rest is of the experience is the software.

Because people need to get their valuable feedback in so Apple can change things up last minute according to Joe Bighands' prototype testing through looking at alleged actual product images.

They meant the ideal of its time, it's always great to work differentiate your devices from time to time (just not monthly releases). An ideal isn't always meant to be forever. I mean, what exactly is perfection, right?

agtsmith said,
Weren't 3.5''/3.99'' screens supposed to be "ideal"?

you are correct. its not so much the screen size, but rather width of phone. they still are for the majority of people. I have lots of phones, and the 3.5" does feel the best. the 4" iphone 5 is not as comfortable as the smaller size iphones. I prefer larger ONLY in the sense of being able to see it better EVEN though its NOT as easy to handle with 1 hand.... 5" is good but not good for handling unless you have NBA hands.

Considering my hands, I'm thinking about going for the 5.5

The 5 is great size, but I'm a heavy typer and this amps up the ability to perform better thumb movement.

i have had the note 2 at 5.5" and the mega at 6.3", i think the absolute biggest i would go is the 5.5" size, mega was just toooo big for me.

i still type the fastest with the 3.5 "screen... and logically, IOS auto-correct is extremely better then Android so that speeds it up even more for me.

No I'm pretty sure Apple claimed that the iPhone was the perfect size.

These new 4.7" and 5.5" phones are against "common sense" according to their own ad.

Mr.XXIV said,

No, they just could not justify that nonsense statement anymore. Apple will only move unless they have to or once they found a way to market it as if they are in the exact spot they need to be to release anything. There's also really nothing they can do to make the current size appear different enough to make it seem like a great new innovation. It can't be made thinner or lighter anymore and so now they'll spin it as they revolutionize the experience for the user by going larger.

How do you know that's what Apple meant? How do you know they didn't mean for the rest of human existence?

When you get a little older you will see that companies "market you" what ever a products current form is. It is true at that point in time. You will see things change and adapt, but you will also learn that to not worry about it and take it with a grain of salt.

Add: when you see the Honda CRV commercial that claims it "can be anything you want it to be"... you should buy it, then try to change it into your favourite animal. you will quickly see and understand "marketing".

Yes, crApple's common sense is their on common sense until they alone decide to say others copied their great ideas, yet they come out 'Copying' others great ideas and claim they have innovation and common sense! I only see BS from crApple!

agtsmith said,

At least you have a choice here and don't have to take the 5.5" one. IMHO smaller is better... To me ~4.5" is ideal. If I need something bigger that means I'm tackling a task that requires more time and attention, that's not something I'll be doing on the go with my phone. I'll stop somewhere and take out a tablet or laptop.

Who's we? As far as I'm concerned, you guys on Android are technically having a civil war with each other on all these OEM's. So you can have fun wrecking your own community, I'll stick with my Apple devices.

Ahahahaaaa, that's your fatal flaw, ASSuming that I use Android simply because I say something against your beloved iPhone. I do not use Android, WP8, or iOS. I use a crappy Blackberry for work purposes which works fine for what I need. But if I had to choose, it certainly would not be iOS.

My comment was on the comment of people assuming (4 years ago) that iPhone users were sheep. But now that Android has the largest market-share, now they are considered "sheep" by previous alleged definitions.

And the comments of these heated Android vs iOS on conversations are nothing on Neowin compared to the Facebook comments on The Verge. Android users are the most immature bunch, most of us iOS users normally stay quiet until someone says something irrational.

Not really, no. Sheep = blind followers. I promise the next time I'll explicitly state "Apple sheep" to avoid such blatant confusions.

This statement alone shows you exactly what IOS users must endure daily on this board and other boards just like it. (and also funny since its doing EXACTLY reverse of what you are claiming)

1) Android user is "insulted" by a person saying they like IOS better.
2) Android user says IOS is weak, old, crappy, slow, old etc
3) IOS user replies "I like it, works for me better in the way I use it"
4) Android user freak out and starts insulting and criticizing personally.

No, but the difference between what android and what Apple marketed is that Android said it was a good OS, and security standards and phone hardware requirements change, so they had to adapt to that but Apple said their phone size was perfect for the human hand. I'm not sure if the human hand has suddenly grown on every single human being in the past 2 years.

When Honda (and ANY other company) claimed in their CRV ad that "it can be anything you want it to be" did you buy one and try to turn it into a horse? or a bird? or what about a mermaid? If you tried you would have noticed its a car and nothing more. Don't take things so literal when it comes to marketing. Likewise, did you also believe when apple said it was "magic"? No? Why not? because your brain told you it was MARKETING.

Have you considered that maybe they won't be using that same marketing line for the next size of phones, instead opting to cater to demands for a bigger screen?

And do we really have to explain marketing to you? I'm sitting here hoping you're just being facetious.
