The measures are a clear indication of differing hardware on board of the duo.
The iPhone 6 is all around the place and there are only a few aspects of the phone that still remain to be seen which gives us the feeling that the official announcement on the September even won’t bring us a lot of surprises, if the leaks really held some truth. In the past few weeks, we have seen the dimensions taken from the prototypes of the 4.7 and the 5.5 inch version and now some recent leak in the form of screenshots is has revealed some more information. Allegedly captured in a Foxconn manufacturing facility and in line with past leaks from the Apple contractor, there is a pair of two thin but large sized phones which we should be expecting.
The prototype of the 4.7 inch version has been codenamed as N61, and measures 138.14 x 66.97 x 6.9 mm. There is no mention of the weight and it probably means that when these screenshots were taken, Apple wasn’t so sure about what the final hardware is going to look like. There are two prototypes for the 5.5 inch version which have the factory designation N56. This shows the measurements as 158.0 x 77.12 x 7 mm and 168.5 grams and the second prototype is at 158.07 x 77.79 x 7.1 mm and 184.6 grams. These differences are clear indications that there is going to be differing hardware on board of the duo.
