Purported iPhone 6 Chassis Points To Larger Display, Thinner Design

Chinese microblogging site Weibo (think a combination of Twitter and Facebook) has been circulating these images — reportedly showing the metal housing for a supposed iPhone 6.

As with any rumors, this one should be taken with a pinch of salt — but if there is truth to it it suggests that the device will feature an ultra-thin form factor (an idea that has been modeled in various iPhone 6 fan concept designs) and also boast a display in the region of 4.7 to 5 inches.

Much as it did with the iPhone 5c and 5s, Apple has been reported as planning to release two separate iPhone 6 models. It is unknown which, if any, this would be.

    It’s only a matter of time before Apple is more or less forced into making a larger phone. I didn’t think they’d pull the trigger this soon with the 6 but even if this fake, again, it’s an eventuality that we’ll see in the next couple years.

    With a bigger phone we may finally see widgets and yet another reimagining of iOS.
