As the days go by leading up to next week’s September 9th event, the part leaks for Apple’s next flagship handsets keep streaming in. The 5.5-inch model in particular has been getting a lot of attention lately, with multiple sources leaking photos of its casing and supposed components. Today’s offering, courtesy of French site Nowhereelse.fr, is another look at the shell of what the publication is calling the “iPhone Air.”
Apple is reportedly working on two models of the next iPhone for release this fall, both rumored to be getting the spotlight at a special event on September 9th. Both models of the refreshed flagship are said to be getting a larger screen than the iPhone 5s, shipping in both 4.7 and 5.5-inch sizes. The above 5.5-inch device is rumored to be shipping with a sapphire crystal display, while it’s reported that only some of the smaller, 4.7-inch models will sport the same.
Various reports have claimed that while the 4.7-inch model will be available more readily, the 5.5-inch version may be released later in the calendar year due to supply constraints on key components. That said, the latest reports from reliable sources suggest that both models will at least be unveiled come September 9th. Apple is reportedly also planning to introduce a wearable product at that event as well.
