    Cases have often been found prior to phone releases. Manufacturers make them based on leaked dimentions I believe, to get a head start on case design.

    It would also appear that there is a power button on the side...

    That is just a company advertising a product. They can call it iPhone Jet, Turbo IPHONE or I-Phone 6. It means absolutely nothing.

    I disagree.

    There's an advertising/marketing hook in there (Something in the "Air"), so that looks like it will be a campaign for Spigen.

    They could be calling their case "Air" something. Unless thats what you mean.

    They aren't privy to anything more then we are at this point. Certainly not a name as that has no effect on their product (aside from marketing, which is very BAD lol).

    Maybe it's just a placeholder image, and they based their information on the Chinese report last week (which, let's not forget, claimed the 16GB model would be exclusive to the 5.5" phone...).

    They could just be hoping that's the case, but if not, it's no biggie to change their graphics. I doubt they actually have information from Apple.

    Fair point, maybe the case is called the Air, which would tie in with something being in the "Air".

    ----------

    I couldn't help but wonder with that, if there would indeed be a 16 gig 5.5" iPhone, but it would be priced the same as the entry model 4.7", which would be a 32 gig...?

    So you would effectively be paying a premium for the 5.5" (probably £100/$100?) and then each iteration upwards would be £100/$100 more expensive.

    Hmm, if this is in any way real, at least it confirms a few things.
    1. The buttons are now elongated, and the sleep/wake button is on the side.

    2. The design is now rounded, instead of completely flat, like the 5s. (Looks like the 6 will be a slippery bar of soap :D)

    3. There will not be antenna bands, just glass inserts like the 5s.

    This could say that the screen is bigger, but who knows??

    Just an observation, doesn't mean everything I said will be true :cool:

    I looked at the camera opening. It looks like it matches the faceplate color and not the color shown along the buttons :D

    I did say it was an observation, could be wrong.

    Maybe I wasn't clear, but JuanBadApple said "There will not be antenna bands, just glass inserts like the 5s".

    So I asked how he/she could tell that, just from the picture.

    How does someone saying there won't be anyone antenna bands, tie in with "Something is in the AIR"? :confused:

    I noticed this and didn't think much of it, but honestly I do think the next iPhone may be called some sort of "air" variant. It makes sense to me at least.

    The only confirmation here is Spigen is making a case based on the alleged dimensions and rumored Air subtitle of the next iPhone.

    I agree. Otherwise, they could've said "iPhone Air cases" in the line at the very bottom. But they didn't.

    At least they could have been more creative with their slogan. Apple used the exact same in 2008 when launching the MacBook Air.
