iPhone-6-5.5-inch-leaked-inside

New photos leaked online today claim to show the body of the upcoming 5.5-inch iPhone, recently dubbed the “iPhone 6L” in another leak. The parts in the images are said to have come directly from Apple’s supply chain, though that claim is obviously quite difficult to verify. The design of the body matches up with previous leaks (more photos below the break).

Apple is reportedly working on two similar versions of the iPhone 6 for release this fall, likely following an announcement on September 9th. Each model will be larger than the current iPhone 5s, coming in at 4.7 and 5.5 inches, respectively. The device will sport a sapphire crystal display, which we’ve seen on video in recent months, though some sources claim that only the 5.5-inch variant will get that specific upgrade.

The device will also have a larger battery to accomodate the increased screen size, which seems likely to feature a resolution of 828 x 1472 based on recent discoveries in Apple’s Xcode tool. According to recently-leaked images the bigger batteries will be 1810mAh in the smaller model and 2915mAh in the larger model.

Though some reports have indicated that the bigger version would be delayed, both models recently entered mass production and are expected to make simultaneous debuts in record numbers.

    That’s it, I’m done reading all of this. Two weeks ago, analyst claims iPhone 5.5″ will be delayed due to screen problems and manufacturing issues, and then you get leaks of the actual device. I don’ t know who to believe anymore…. I’m just wait for the official unveil September 9th

    I think I have made my final guess of what the ugly bars are. My bet is that they are LED lights and you can customize to be different ongoing colors or will flash different colors depending on what kind of communication is coming in.

  3. Other than the Apple logo cutout looking a little weird compared to the 4.7″ this looks pretty legit. Here you go 5.5″ deniers!!! Hahah

      you people are crazy. how does this in any way prove that the frame is a 5.5” frame? this could be the 4.7” frame again. also, if there are only 2 new models of the iPhone 6, i did be willing to bet anything that they would be the 4” and the 4.7”. there is no way apple doesn’t provide the latest and greatest in the 4” variation (and please don’t say the 4” users can have the 5S – it’s idiotic). the only way there will be a 5.5” model is if apple announces 3 new devices on the 9th.

      • That’s 5.5″ open your eyes… Look how huge it is… That’s 4.7″ and 5.5″ cases. I fully agree with you that if they were going to continue to support the 4″ that there would be a 4″ iPhone 6, because you’re right no one wants to be forced into old specs. These are not the 4″ though.

      • Oh come on, there won’t be a 4″ iPhone 6 because the 4.7″ is almost the same size as the 5S and its 4″. I think there will be the iPhone 6 (4.7″) and the iPhone 6L (5.5″) and with the exact same design we’ve seen lately, no thinner bands, no glass filling in between those bands.

        I agree with Smoothie here…if you look at previous renders comparing how a 4″ device looks standing next to a 4.7″ device and a 5.5″ device the comparable difference in size between the 4.7″ and the 5.5″ is much greater than that of a 4″ and a 4.7″. Look at the difference in size between these 2 devices…it’s massive. Not to mention, we have a newspaper behind it to give an idea of scale. 100% this shows 4.7″ and 5.5″ imho.

        Because if someone had gotten ahold of a 4″ iPhone-6 style shell, that would be even bigger news than a 5.5″ shell since that hasn’t been rumored at all.

    You may want to fix this as we 100% have not seen a sapphire display on any video thus far. While it may have a sapphire display, either some models don’t, or the one we saw was a prototype, because it was not in any way, sapphire.

    • re: “not in any way, sapphire …”

      Not true at all. We have not seen anything yet that is *definitely* sapphire, but we have seen some that have properties that gorilla glass *doesn’t* have, and that sapphire *does* have. In other words we have seen some that is *possibly* sapphire, or that may contain sapphire.

      This is not the same thing at all as “not in any way, sapphire.”

      • Please share with me the glass we’ve seen with sapphire properties? There is no sapphire concoction that sorta gives some of it’s properties…kinda. If they used sapphire at all it would be the entire thing, or the very outter layer, and the sandpaper used would not have scratched it at all. As you can see in the video, the home button is untouched, because it is sapphire. The panel was in no way sapphire.

        Please tell me why they’d use sapphire but not attain sapphire’s hardness? It was maybe a little harder than the gorilla glass on the 5S, and you’d almost certainly not be able to tell the difference in real world results. Now if it were sapphire hardness on the other hand, it wouldn’t scratch in real world results. Ever. At least not 99% of the phones (sure some people will accidentally hit their diamond rings across it).

        It’s not possible to “smelt sapphire and glass together”. Sapphire has a mono crystalline structure that wouldn’t function with any amount of impurities. Either it must be solid sapphire, or sapphire glass laminate (most likely scenario). Either way it should be sapphire on the surface, making these “leaked screens” unlikely to be sapphire.

        Sandpaper contains corundum and is effectively a 9 on the Moh’s scale of mineral hardness. It is able to scratch anything short of diamond… including sapphire.

    Again with these ugly antennae breaks. Its quite possibly wishful thinking but does any one by that these breaks may be made form the sapphire crystal not the display, and they some how illuminate , much like it was reported the logo would, but looks like will not?? Now that would be cool and not this ugly white filler shit we see in all the leaks.

        Notification lights are incredibly useful. And a proper separate notification LED, whether it be a pinhole light or these bands, would drain far less battery and be far more elegant / far less obtrusive than lighting up the camera flash to let you know you have a message.

      • @Fuzzypaws it’s a worthless battery drain that most people wouldn’t use. There’s a reason that the LED flash can be used for notifications, it’s called the hearing impaired, hence why it’s under hearing in accessibility. They use the LED flash for it because there’s no way they were going to put a separate LED for the hearing impaired only. That’s why the LED flash was a good choice for a notification for the hearing impaired.

        Are you seriously arguing that no one would ever use a notification LED? Really? That one little thing is actually several friends’ favorite feature of Android, and I use it all the time too when my phone is on the charger to tell at a glance if I need to check my messages. While the bands on the casing would be an unusually /flashy/ means of implementing it, so I don’t really expect that to be true, there’s still plenty of useful low power implementations like Samsung’s pinhole light near the front camera.

    • They need to copy the antenna breaks from the htc one m8.The lines would not be so bad if it was just a strait line, but having the line follow the complete window that is glass or ceramic depending if it is a dark or white looks like shit. Really don’t care if the new antenna design improves connectivity and phone calls, it is a horrible looking design.

    Amazing that these “leaks” happen on a daily basis considering how locked-down Apple is. I consider these mostly Apple sponsored leaks. It helps build up to the big event which everyone knows is coming.

    I say “Apple sponsored” leaks on iPhone because in the all the hype/predictions around the so-called iWatch not one single image has leaked. Nothing, zip, nada. And you know they have manufactured thousands of the things in some form or another to do test runs and to test the devices themselves. Probably in the 100’s of thousands. Yet not a single credible image has appeared anywhere. Pretty amazing when you think about it because the iWatch has to be the most sought after pre-announced, pre-production device on the planet. There are many who would love nothing more than to be first to leak an iWatch or Apple wearable. Would probably make their career. Yet somehow they have kept it under wraps.

      I doubt Apple would sponsor leaks. Their business model is built around secrecy and there is no way they would risk upsetting shareholders by deliberately leaking parts prior to an event. If anything, the hype is heightened when there are no leaks whatsoever as then you have only speculation. I don’t know about you, but thanks to the zero leaks on the iWatch, I am far more excited about THAT announcement!
      As for the zero leaked iWatch parts…that is because it has not gone into MASS production yet. Sure, they will have built a large number of devices to do internal testing, but Apple have their own small scale manufacturing equipment in Cupertino solely for these test productions. How do you think Apple test the vast array of different designs they come up with? You think they manufacture these all at a 3rd party in China….not a chance. They do it internally. No leaks, because the manufacturing has not left Apple headquarters yet.
      As soon as it goes into mass production at Foxconn or whomever, we should start seeing leaks, but analysts state that likely won’t be until November/December.

    • Not a chance in hell. They would never ever do that, the iPhone Air doesn’t make sense at all because it’s getting physically bigger and probably will weigh more. The iPhone Pro makes even less sense because in no way is a smartphone aimed at ‘professionals’ as they will all always be too of the line specs each year, and calling it Pro simply creates this mass confusion for customers as to what the hell the difference is and why it’s called Pro and the other Air when they have virtually identical designs. Plus the iPhone 6L (which actually makes sense) may be slightly thinner, so technically it would be even more like ‘air’ in thinness.

      Simple fact is, it’ll be called iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L because it makes the most sense at of all possibilities. It’s very simple distinction… L for large. I promise there won’t be an iPhone Pro ever.

  13. It is without a doubt the ugliest product that we’ve seen from Apple.
    I can’t believe that a company that usually gives great importance to design, produce such a device.

    I guess we have to wait for September and I hope that all these leaks are one big trick and that the next iphone does not look like that AT ALL.
