A new set of photos of Apple’s alleged 4.7” iPhone 6 have surfaced, this time on the Weibo account of dreamerjimmy – Jimmy Lin Chih-ying. Photos of both the front and back of the device are seen, shot next to an iPhone 5s for comparison. The device looks taller and not wider, with better use of the bezel space.
Validity of the pictures should be high – he had also posted about the same time last year with leaked pictures of the then iPhone 5C. How does he get access to such phones? Well, the former Taiwanese singer, actor and professional race car driver is obviously well-connected.
The phone itself is inline with previous leaks – a bigger screen and a shifted position for power button. As for the finish, this could just be the initial prototype and Apple may improve it for the final release.
Here’s a translation of his first impression:
“4.7-inch screen, power button now shifted to the right, antenna now outside for better reception. Overall feel is also more rounded as compared to previous angular design. Larger screen, good grip!”
