The image of the iPhone 6 5.5-inch and 4.7-inch shells that are pictured above, as well as in the post on Evasi0n Jailbreak that’s linked to below, provides our first glimpse at how the two housings compare against one another.
Like my coverage on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 variation, this latest leak originated from my source deep within Apple’s supply chain in China. However, before jumping to the conclusion that today’s leak is indicative of a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 release alongside the all-but-confirmed 4.7-inch model next month, my sources have informed me that a very limited, and undisclosed, number of said 5.5-inch back housing components exist in the factory in question.
This latest intel aligns with previous reports suggesting that production issues may cause the larger iPhone 6 variant to be delayed beyond the 4.7-inch model’s likely release next month – my sources stated that a September release for a 5.5-inch model is “unlikely”. Moreover, it’s also possible that the component pictured in today’s coverage is intended for testing and prototype purposes only.
