iPhone 6 Design Possibly Exposed by Leaked Case

iPhone 6 Design Leak

We all pretty much expect the iPhone 6 to sport a bigger display than the iPhone 5s. The question is how much bigger. According to an image of a leaked case, it looks like Apple’s sequel will get taller without getting wider.

The case mold of the purported iPhone 6 showed up on a Japanese case-maker’s website and was first spotted by 9to5 Mac. It’s clear that the design has narrower side bezels than the current iPhone and a larger display, but it’s not easy to determine the exact size.

Rumor has it that the iPhone 5 may come in two versions — a 4.7-inch model and a 5.5-inch phablet, both with strong sapphire crystal screens. The Japanese blog also points to an enhanced 8-MP camera with a f/1.8 lens (versus f/2.2 on the iPhone 5s.)

As others have reported, the site says to expect pressure, temperature and humidity sensors, which would work hand in hand with the new Healthbook app that’s focused on fitness. It’s worth noting that third-party case makers are notorious for posting designs for cases that aren’t molded on the actual product.
