    Based on the specs posted on the website the dimensions are identical to the 6s

    Kind of surprised considering they ditched the headphone jack.

    It's probably the force touch display. It's thicker than the display on the 6/6+.

    Maybe a combination of the and increased battery size?

    Added another speaker, possibly added additional home button hardware (haptic/taptic whatever it's called), larger battery etc...

    Looks like most of that space went to a bigger battery.

    perhaps? Now they have a year to get the footprint and weight down to Note 7 standards ;)

    Different display and possible new battery technology (i.e. higher density) which could be ready for mass production by next fall may help with that.
