New leak compares iPhone 6 to iPhone 5s ahead of expected-September announcement

New images claiming to show the iPhone 6 in space grey appeared on Sunday, adding fuel to the fire ahead of Apple’s expected announcement in the coming weeks. The authenticity of the images hasn’t been verified, so take them with a grain of salt, but the claimed iPhone 6 shown gels nicely with leaks over the past year and are fun to look at nonetheless.

The images, scooped up by Gizmobic, show how much larger the iPhone 6 may be than the iPhone 5s currently on the market. The protruding camera leaked in recent days is shown, which could cause distaste among Apple fanboys, as already voiced by several of our readers.

Even with the bigger size of the new iPhone, the images show it to be sleeker and thinner than the iPhone 5s. A thinner tray for the nano-SIM card is shown, and the bottom of the iPhone 6 may have only one speaker strip and one mic hole aside the audio I/O jack.

Perhaps one of the most significant changes is the move of the power button to the side for the first time in the iPhone’s history. This is a practice common for Android handsets – hello Samsung! The volume buttons drop the circular look and opt-for a sleeker design.

Apple plans to hold a September 9 media event to unveil two new versions of the iPhone with larger displays of 4.7- and 5.5-inches that run a new A8 processor, according to ReCode. The Cupertino-based company has yet to send official invites to the press to attend the event, but given ReCode’s solid record in tracking dates for Apple product unveilings, it’s looking likely.

    That camera…. :(

    • h4nd0fg0d

      Ya, tht god forsaken camera. -1 Apple… -1.

      • Carol James

        if they did that to have a bigger sensor or whatever in the camera GREAT!

    • Sero Eskandaryan

      If you put a case on it I think it will be ok. It will cover the sides so it doesn’t look protruded

      • JustReboot

        Yep / Spigen would me my choice…

      • http://louisdickinson.co.uk Louis Dickinson

        Some people like cases and some people dont. If i bought a premium car i wouldn’t expect to have to wrap it in rubber to project it. I love my iPhone 5 iv never used a case with it but this iPhone 6 protruding lense must be fake! Jony Ive would never agree to it!

      • Husam Hamed

        what about the ipod touch?

      • http://louisdickinson.co.uk Louis Dickinson

        I’ve never owned an iPod Touch. We know apple have a sapphire
        manufacturer so maybe there going to use pure sapphire on their lenses…

      • Husam Hamed

        What I meant is that the current iPod touch has a protruding lens, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they did the same on the i6.
        Let’s just hope these rumors are false.

      • http://louisdickinson.co.uk Louis Dickinson

        Ahh, thats ashame. I dont know why but when a phone doesn’t lie on its back evenly it makes me think of a cheap htc or nokia model. It doesn’t scream premium design to me.

      • h4nd0fg0d

        Sucks for me coz I hate cases!

    • Yash Gorana

      I know how Apple’s marketing works:

      We present you, the $299 iPhone 6 with protruding camera.
      So how will fix the protruding camera ?
      Well, we made a $49 bumper to fix it for you :D

  • Blaqheart

    September 9th cannot come quick enough…

    • Envisu

      Yeah that white PS4 is too beautiful

      • Brian 

        Too bad this is a website on Apple and the PS4 is irrelevant?

      • iRy757

        Someone pissed in your Wheaties this morning.

      • Quip

        No shit Sherlock.

      • RarestName

        whoosh?

      • iRy757

        Yesss Destiny time.

  • Blaqheart

    I seriously doubt that the camera will deter all the usual suspects from ordering online at midnight or being in line on release day….

    • Dan

      If it didn’t have a camera it still wouldn’t deter them

  • JoshuaHulgan

    iPhone 5

  • Oliver Lopez Felix

    Why complain about the camera?… i want to see people reporting the camera falling apart, then complain… i never had a problem whit my iPod Touch 5th gen. Also, 90% of the people will put a case on it anyways, if they did that to have a bigger sensor or whatever in the camera GREAT!

  • http://haifisch.ninja Haifisch

    That camera is like the one on the iPod Touch 5th gen

  • Annie Leonhart

    LOVE the camera :D ……… as long as it’s taking some great shots ;)

  • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

    Really iDB this one screams clone… The cameras Diameter isn’t as large as the previous backs we have seen and even though the pics are blurry the flash just looks bad. Its like what TMZ did to the news a few days ago…

  • Jayy

    This might be the first iphone I camp out for idk (Just because i’m still rocking the iPhone 4 and need an upgrade) …. Although I feel like camping out for a phone is some loser shit and I wouldn’t tell a soul that I did so!

    • nonchalont

      I’m rocking iphone 4 also. It’s just horrible and sooo slow when jailbroken. I miss the buttery smoothness and quickness when opening apps. Remember when iphone 4 first came out and it was the latest and greatest? Ahhhh those were the days lol. I miss those days and now it’s time to buy the iphone 6. Sucks for me cause I’m on Verizon unlimited data plan. I guess I’ll have to buy the phone unsubsidized :(

      • Jayy

        Yeah I feel you, My iPhone 4 is jailbroken. and I bought it when it was new and the latest iPhone on the market. but with ios 7 my iphone isnt too slow being jailbroken. my only regret is that its the 8gb model and I cracked my screen!

      • AndroidDogHeatandSteelersFan

        Should enjoy life more than being unlimited and tied to a screen to utilize for all it’s worth. 2GB -5GB is enough eh

    • Mike Colacone Saal

      its actually not bad. you meet some interesting people.

    • Dan

      Or you could just buy it a few days later and nit waste your time

    • h4nd0fg0d

      Iphone 4, oh how I pity thee.

  • Matt

    Remember with the iPhone 5, everyone was 100% sure what it looked like. One company unveiled it before it came out, and another company made a million cases to find out it was the wrong design, and lost a lot of money. So as iDownloadBlog says “take all these rumors with a grain of salt.”

  • n0ahcruz3

    No need to buy ollo clip. Its integrated! Lol

  • Devin Plebuch

    With a case to even out the dimensions, the camera would not make the phone uneven lying down. If that makes it the same thickness as the 5/5S without a case, I can live with that.

  • GustaMusta

    Maybe something related to optical zoom ;P

  • hkgsulphate

    eew o_O

  • TechLove

    These pics are fake.. Its just the GooPhone i6 V2. that clone is all aluminum!

    Moreover, There was never a leak in history with those FCC stuff on the back of the iPhone.
    And if we even think that those FCC stuff is the real deal, There are always three lines of apple stuff above it.
    But in this clone, there are only to lines.

    • Guest

      Now, where’s my cookie?

    • TechLove

      Now, where’s my Cookie? D:

      • Jose Gonzalez

        My iPhone 5s only has two lines so i don’t get what your trying to prove here. Same goes for my Retina iPad mini and my Macbook Pro.

      • TechLove

        oh f*ck, my bad.
        I just stared my non-retina iPad Mini and this iPhone 5 pic, so thought every apple device might had those three lines on them but i guess, the newer models only have two lines of written stuff.
        *FacePalmToSelf*
        But even then, these pics look fake.

    • pauleebe

      I’m not saying you are right or wrong, but how do you know that non-iPhone 5s pictured is aluminum. Also, there was an article a while back, stating FCC was relaxing their standards for etching stuff on the back of mobile devices like smartphones, so this would make sense.

      • TechLove

        According to my observations,
        The flash is not in place,
        The component leaks for the camera ring are by far more polished than this clone’s ring
        If FCC relaxed their standards, the whole FCC branding shouldn’t be there.
        Its more of a mockup that youtubers like Jonathan, UrAvgConsumer n others used, to prank people and not the real deal.

  • Falco

    The iPhone 6 will use the same font for the “iPhone” logo as the 5s. But in the picture the 6 uses the same font as the 5 with thicker letters, it’s fake

  • Abdullah Safdar

    These all pics are non else than fake…
    Just wait until september and see the original iphone 6 come out to feast your eyes… Unless, it is only half of iphone 6, that is iphone 6 of 4.7″ display….

  • Abdullah Safdar

    Cant wait till september… But When will ios 8 come ??

  • Bob

    FAKE phones don’t talk.

  • Manuel Molina

    Meh… I prefer to wait until the 9th before I jump the gun and into the lava with these pictures and rumors.

  • Kyle Adams

    I’m sure Apple has a reason for the camera to be protruding.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/PrsnSinghHD Prasoon Singh

    I hope the camera thing is false. Please don’t do it Apple.

    • Gary le

      Agreed. Make it thicker with increased battery juice instead.

  • Stefano

    Almost positive I’ll hold onto my iPhone five for another year.

  • ChrisLoos

    In profile it looks like a Nexus 5.

  • Jeffrey Feuerstein

    Is it me or are the antenna lines thinner?!

  • Jeffrey Feuerstein

    Also, in the left top corner of the photo of the back comparisons on Gizmobic, you can see 2 iPhone 6 bumpers!

  • http://ozonostudio.com/ ozonostudio

    that camera is awful, but the ugly part for me is since i design Apple apps, i’m going to need it, but i don’t like it, looks like an ipod

  • DWayne Robinson

    the design aspect resembles the iPod touch

  • Anjobaba

    ios8 final on iphone 5s is laggy and unstable
