Although the iPhone 6 is still several months away from becoming official, this hasn’t stopped the mobile blogosphere from continuously digging out information concerning said device. Since the beginning of the year we’ve dealt with numerous leaks and rumors regarding the iPhone 6, and by the looks of it, this trend is not going to stop before Apple brings its next smartphone on the stage. That’s definitely good news for us mobile geeks, as it allows us to learn quite a lot about the said device before it actually goes on sale.
One of the biggest questions surrounding the iPhone 6 is how it will look like, especially now that the handset is expected to deliver a 4.7-inch display. Countless mockups have been spotted in the wild during these past several weeks, and today we bring you a handful of new images that seem to showcase the real iPhone 6 “in flesh”. More details after the break.
Déjà vu? 4.7-inch iPhone 6 Showcased by Taiwanese Star
You may not recall this, but last year before the iPhone 5C became official, tons of photos depicting various 5C mockups have surfaced on the web, leaving us wondering if what we were looking at was the real deal. It was pretty much a similar situation as it is now with the 4.7-inch iPhone 6.
Back in August 2013, the Taiwanese star known as Jimmy Lin has shared a few photos depicting the real iPhone 5C, and wouldn’t you know it, the same actor / professional race car driver has just published a handful of new pictures on its official Weibo account. This time around however, Jimmy Lin is showcasing the highly-anticipated 4.7-inch iPhone 6.
Granted, there’s no way to be certain that the smartphone depicted in these shots alongside the iPhone 5S is the real 4.7-inch iPhone 6, but if history is any indication, then we’re definitely looking at the real deal.
Assuming that this is indeed the final design of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, what are your thoughts on it? The handset definitely fits the “extremely thin” and “thin bezel” profile, and it clearly borrows its design cues from the iPad Air / iPad Mini. The question is: do you like where Apple is going with the upcoming flagship smartphone? Feel free to drop us a line in the comment section, and stay tuned for more.
