We’ve heard plenty of reports about Apple’s 5.5-inch “phablet” iPhone 6, but most of the leaked pictures so far have claimed to depict its smaller sibling, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, instead.

That’s changed with some new model photos showing mockups of both sizes of the forthcoming iPhone 6, including both the back and front of the two next generation iPhone models, sitting side by side.


The images back up a lot of what we already know about Apple’s next iPhone release — including its rounded case edges, larger form factor, thinner bezels, and relocated power button. Apple is expected to drop the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 around September time, while the 5.5-inch version (which will likely be in shorter supply) will either launch simultaneously, or could be delayed a few months.

While there is no guarantee that these photos are authentic, they were posted by the well-connected Sonny Dickson — a.k.a. the infamous leaker who revealed the iPhone 5 alongside a number of other Apple products.

The more I hear about the iPhone 6, the more I’m tempted by the 5.5-inch model, despite the fact that it will likely be more expensive. Which iPhone 6, if any, do you plan to buy later this year?
