Apple is widely rumored to launch a 4.7-inch model and a 5.5-inch "phablet"-style one for the next generation of its popular smartphone, dubbed "iPhone 6." Over the past few weeks, we've seen leaked photos of alleged cases and rear shells of the handset. But now, we get to see images of dummy models of the iPhone 6. These images come to us courtesy of Sonny Dickson, a reliable source who has a fine track record as a leaker of prerelease versions of Apple hardware. On his Twitter account, he has posted the image above and the one right below, which he claims to be mockups of the white and gold models of the iPhone 6. Note that either image serves as a size comparison between the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models of the iPhone 6. 9to5Mac, which show the iPhone 6's space gray model. The site notes:
The design of this larger model essentially appears to be a larger version of the 4.7-inch design. Coming from an iPhone 5s, the design appears notably thinner and includes a new antenna cut design and no glass on the rear. The camera LED flash appears to lose the pill shape from the 5s’s True-Tone sensor and the power button has been re-located to the right hand side of the phone.Apple’s 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models are rumored to be launched in September. The unveiling of the iPhone 6 is expected to coincide with the official release of iOS 8, which is also said to power Apple’s similarly rumored "iWatch," reportedly set for launch in October.
