A new set of images showing the alleged design of the forthcoming 4.7-inch iPhone 6 was leaked today by Weibo user dreamerJimmy (via Gforgames). What’s more interesting is that the device appears in the hand of a Taiwanese star (actor and singer) known as Jimmy Lin, who had previously shared images of the iPhone 5c weeks before the official announcement.
We understand the actor’s excitement for the next-generation Apple devices as he compares the iPhone 6 with the iPhone 5s. The same Weibo user posted an image showing the front of the device, and, as you can see, there are some notable changes.
For example, the bezels appear to be much thinner, and the home button has moved closer to the bottom of the display compared to that of the iPhone 5s. Also, the hole for the front camera seems to be larger – maybe a camera upgrade, as rumoured? – while the rear shell is in line with previous leaks.
DreamerJimmy has proven to be a reliable source of Apple leaks, but since we cannot confirm the authenticity of the above images, they still have to be taken with a grain of salt.
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 6 in two sizes this fall, and rumour has it the device will feature a sapphire glass screen among other notable updates.
