‘Leaked’ pictures from this weekend show that the iPhone 6 is likely to be slimmer and more rounded.
The grainy pictures below have come from French tech blog, Nowhereelse.fr. They show that the iPhone 6 could come with a new unspecified button on the side, which is rumored to be the new home of the power button.
Nowhereelse.fr also claimed that the new handset will have a flashing Apple logo on the back that will indicate when a call is incoming, or message has been received. As usual, nothing has been confirmed.
Rumors so far have centered on the possibility of two versions of the iPhone 6 being launched later this year, one with a 4.7-inch screen and one with a 5.5-inch screen. Sources also told 9 to 5 Mac that the new handset(s) will have a 1704 x 960 resolution and a Sapphire glass display, which is currently used for the Touch ID Sensor.
There’s also the possibility that the iWatch will make an appearance in October this year, which Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White believes is going into production this month: “Our meeting with a tech supply chain company highlighted that initial production of certain ‘iWatch’ components is scheduled to begin later this month and there are plans for a sharp acceleration into fall”.
If that’s accurate then the iPhone 6 could be launched alongside the much rumored iWatch, falling in line with other manufacturers like Samsung, Huawei and Sony that have launched combinations of wearables and handsets this year.
