Wow looks great.

Looks like a wider Ipod touch and as slim as the Ipod touch.

I was unsure about a larger screen but if it looks that good and like the Ipad air and Ipod touch 5 I'm sold on it.

I'd still go with then smaller 4.7" inch over any larger version though.

The back enclosure looks like metal ?
This could be for an ipod touch perhaps.

Why no point for an iPod having a huge screen?

The top looks too much like a galaxy and it seems like there's still some bezel on the sides. Wonder if legit

I think this is a next-generation iPod touch.
But why does it say iPhone on the back? Unless these are doctored photos?

Blurry, like photos of UFOs and bigfoot or conspiracy theory "proof".

The ring around the finger sensor...looks kind of thick and nasty, not elegant thin like the present one.

But, it looks real and if it isn't it probably is pretty close.

I quite like the look of it. Even if it's just a render, if the final product resembles something similar, i'd certainly buy one.

Ipod touch would prob get this update too. One could say this is an ipod touch and the Iphone will remain as thick as it is today but the rumours suggest any larger screen size will see the Iphone get slimmer. Iphone 5 was slimmer than Iphone 4 that's how Apple does things.

Whoa, Bezel-less is starting to look better now that in previous posts. Though, It wouldn't be "far fetched" for Apple to incorporate their slim body design from the iPads to the iPhone to make it slimmer since that what happened with the iPad Air. Im curious as to see how the space gray backing would look like with this design (if its not fake )

Iphone 5 renders looked almost like the final product.

I was thinking it kinda looked like a Galaxy, but more refined.

I reckon they like to leak things to give us a taster of what to expect and build excitement as the year goes on.

It looks like that but in a way it looks miles better.

that's the new iPod touch, not the iPhone 6. It's way too thin to be an iPhone.

if it's not windows for data transmission the casing they use must be liquid metal. or they're using the screen as the main window

Is this what they meant by bezel-less phone, as seen in second photo?

Yes but the Ipod touch range has never looked much like the Iphone range. This could be about to change offcourse.

That's a good point. I don't know. I also missed the SIM slot because the images hadn't finished loading when I commented.

If my calculations are correct, this is (approximately) a 14.4 cm, or 5.66 inch tall iPhone.

Color me excited.

The logo placement feels a bit weird, but otherwise I like the look.

Though I don't know how they can do solid aluminum, maybe they have more sections on the antenna band? Or maybe it isn't aluminum...

I don't know, it just doesn't make sense. Why would you make such a large iPod, most people run with their iPods tied to their arms ... that size doesn't seem very comfy for it's purpose.

So true! Then I can stop salivating over those nice big screens from samsung. Both will be better than the 4 inch screen. Too bad they didn't give consumers the choice a year ago. Reminds me of the one button mouse debauchery.


Didn't Timmy Say "We put a lot of thought into screen size and feel confident we picked the right one" regarding sticking with the 4 inch screen during the 1 quarter call in 2013? anyone remember that....

The Market will show this was a mistake.....
