New video purportedly shows Apple’s 5.5-inch ‘iPhone Air’
There have been numerous “iPhone 6” leaks in recent months. Most of these have focused on Apple’s long-rumored 4.7-inch model. On Monday, NWE showcased a video purportedly showing the rear shell of the 5.5-inch model.
As you can see, the video shows a handset with thick antenna breaks, a rounded opening for an updated True Tone flash, and a revised Apple logo. Also noticeable are cutouts for elongated volume buttons and a side mounted power button.
NWE calls this model the “iPhone Air.”
Apple is expected to unveil two new iPhone models next Tuesday, Sept. 9 at an event at the Flint Center at De Anza College in Cupertino, California. This is where Steve Jobs unveiled the first Mac in 1984. It is also where the Mac 30th Celebration was held earlier this year.
Recent leaks suggest both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone models will sport near field communication (NFC) technology, and will be available with a sapphire glass display. At least one version of the smaller version will come with Gorilla Glass.
