iphone_6_cases_crystal

Most of the reports we’ve seen thus far regarding the iPhone 6 have pointed to two separate models: one with a 4.7-inch display and one with a 5.5-inch. It’s possible that Apple is simply testing two different designs, and only plans on releasing one, but the consensus is that both models will make it to market.

Adding evidence to that theory is a new photograph, which surfaced online earlier today, of what are supposed to be two iPhone 6 cases. It’s hard to tell how big they are, but it’s being said that they were made to fit new, larger iPhones, and there’s a mysterious cutout on the left-hand side of each of the cases…

The photo was first posted by MobileFun:

We recently received some interesting images that purport to be cases for both of the upcoming iPhone 6 models. The one on the right is for an iPhone with a 4.7-inch display, expected to be announced in June. The left case is for an iPhone with an even larger 5.7-inch display. This larger, phablet-sized model would be released in September. 

And Nowhereelse.fr spotted some interesting details:

Note that there’s no opening for the top-mounted sleep/wake button that has been on all previous iPhone models (2). Coincidentally, there’s a new button cutout on the left-hand side (1)—Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple is moving the button to the side this year to better facilitate one-handed use of the larger devices.

Overall the cases match up with previous intel, as well as designs seen in alleged schematic drawings and case-maker models, but you should still take them with a grain of salt. We don’t want a repeat of the great ‘teardrop-shaped iPhone‘ fiasco of 2011, where we were misled by thousands of ‘iPhone 5’ cases, do we?

At any rate, we’re expecting Apple to unveil the iPhone 6 in September, but several reports have suggested the 5.5-inch version will be delayed a few months.

    I for one won’t be buying one if this really is true.
    Just like a Galaxy…..which I can’t stand!!!

    • Anthony Snyder

      Jeez, it’s just a phone. and a “leaked” phone with no standing. (seriously, cuz its laying on some sort of leather)

    • Mustang5Oh

      You won’t buy one because it’s finally getting a now normal sized display? Wow. Have fun with a Blackberry then.

      • Justin Rowe

        It’s too big dude, my partner has an S4 which I think is too big.
        Lol @ the blackberry comment, I’ll just stick with my 5s

      • Domodo

        Honestly, you need to learn how to properly hold a smartphone. First is NOT the optimal way, the second image is.

      • Justin Rowe

        I was wrong and I’ll happily say I stand corrected….I love the bigger screen (I bought a 4.7″ iPhone 6)

    • Domodo

      The same was said for iOS 7. You’re going to love it because it has an Apple logo. Its just how it works with most people on this blog.

      • I wish I could go back and show these people their negative comments now and their “it’s perfect, Apple is my life” comments in a few months after its unveiling.

    • blastingbigairs

      The good thing is no one is going to force you to buy anything. The rest of who want a larger screen will rejoice!!! 4.7″ is perfect for me, 5.5″ is a little much.

      • Justin Rowe

        I’m happy to say I stand corrected and that 4.7″ is perfect 🙂

    • Actually at 4.7 inches it is just shy of the size of the Galaxy S3’s 4.8 inch screen and that phone really doesn’t seem too large at all.

  • Husam Hamed

    “Apple is moving the button to the side this year to better facilitate one-handed use of the larger devices”
    Better? Better for lefties maybe, but what about the rest of the world?

    • mynamesuxlol

      You can still use your thumb

    • mondo

      so as a right-handed person you can’t use your left thumb?

      Idiot…

      • h4nd0fg0d

        +1 for the ‘idiot’ part.

      • Umm, the case is upside down. Showing the back. So when the phone is facing you, you would use your right hand’s thumb. So maybe both of you are idiots?

      • mondo

        the case is not upside down, its face down.
        i didn’t comment on the position of the sleep button, only questioned the guy’s inability to use his left thumb…idiot

    • Domodo

      Circled #1 should be the position of the power button. Volume buttons remain where they are and the power button goes on the opposite side of the device.
      Doesn’t get any better than that.

  • james

    Last time I checked the sleep/wake button has never been on that side – denoted in diagram 2. Hilarious post.

    • Anthony Snyder

      The image is flipped obviously.

      • james

        Come on. The sleep/wake is located above the camera, not the opposite side.

      • Anthony Snyder

        What if they moved the camera to the other side. Or how about this is a really terrible fake leak?

      • mondo

        there are rumours this button will be moved in the new design, we shall have to wait and see….

      • mondo

        no it isn’t

  • Thomas Flores

    I’d say the only reason for apple to move the sleep button from the right to the left side would be because the phone is thinner so it makes sense to move it due to the lense of the camera being position in the same place and not because it will make it easier due to a larger phone design

  • Straw hat

    No JUST NO!!! I dont want that sleep wake button to be changed to a different spot!

    • Anthony Snyder

      There’s two cutouts… likely a new button.

    • Domodo

      And then when you hold a large phone in your hand, you’d complain the power button is hard to reach…
      PS Do you start a fire using rocks, or sticks?

  • Donovan

    If they could just leave the buttons where they are, that’d be great.

    • h4nd0fg0d

      And what is the goddamn difference. It’ll b great no matter where it is.

  • Vighnesh Manick

    I’m to use to my iPhone 5, iPad and every previous iDevice that I’d like my sleep button to stay at the same place. Come on Apple, I don’t mind if its a bit thick (or slightly less thickness to the iPhone 5/s) just don’t follow everyone else and have the lock button on the side.

    • Anthony Snyder

      Don’t get upset over leaks that are over 4 months before any actual announcement.

    • felixtaf

      As you know, Apple always boast about one handed use of iPhone.
      Power button on top is not easy to sleep/wake with one hand (unless u have big hands).
      Also Stop comparing iPads and iPhones, both are two diff devices in terms of handling and use.

  • Tim

    It would make sense for the smaller iPhone to be $100 cheaper than the larger one. Similar to the set up of the current iPhone 5s to 5c, I think Apple is trying to achieve the same thing here. It’s smart to provide consumers with a choice of how big a screen they want, so that the consumer wouldn’t have issues with the screen being too big.

  • Nonya Business

    Wow really people? We need a bigger display so stop bitiching. If you don’t like it then they have a smaller version for you!

  • felixtaf

    Big phones with power button on top is not comfortable to operate. I have note 3 and i cannot reach the top (jus like I do on iPhone), if the power button is on the top.
    We all cry for few days, but we will get used to it soon.
    If u dont beliv me, check the HTC One M8 in stores.

  • felixtaf

    Guys, similar case leaks were there after iPhone 4 release (about iPhone 5), years ago. So jus calm down. We will plenty time to bash/complain after release!

  • @dongiuj

    Won’t be buying that case.

  • Eric Wang

    The case looks a lot like a case for the 5th generation iPod touch.

  • The Post

    there is a shadow on the surface that shows that there is some kind of cutout on the top

  • dpacemaker

    Where the #2 circle is wrong, it’s obvious that there is a hole there. You can see the shadow from it. If this were true, then the #2 spot is actually a new spot because it is opposite of the camera. The sleep/power button is always on the same side of the camera. Possibly #1 is is a sleep button, and the top #2 is soley for power on/off. Just my thoughts.

  • Lee Lo May

    Just see the bottom, it’s a Micro-USB plug, not lighting, it’s fake

    • mondo

      how can you tell what plug type that cutout is for?

      Idiot…

      • felixtaf

        You are stating some valid points. But u can say that without the idiot part. Am no one to correct you. But lets have a healthy conversation!

  • ChristianPasquariello

    I think they should call the 5.5″ the Merlin. Differentiate it from the Iphone.

  • n0ahcruz3

    And please make it 10+ hrs talk time. Every iphone generation they only say 10 hrs talk time 10 hrs web during keynotes. Make it 15 hrs or more apple.

  • Sokun Navorth

    the old button is awesome, new is shit.

    • Sokun Navorth

      because of the button, that is why I didnt buy galaxy

    • Qasim

      Button is a button, does the same thing, but it would take getting used to, nothing else

  • mondo

    its funny how everyone turns into an apple expert when all the rumours start….

  • Andres

    The button could be a touch type button when it senses vibration. Instead if repositioning your hand every time you want to turn off your phone, could be a lot easier
