More information of the upcoming iPhone 6 has come out of the woodworks. Images of an alleged case for the newest version of the iPhone were posted this morning on Nowhereelse.fr. The images come from an ‘unproven source’ and may just be from an accessories company trying to get a jump on manufacturing.
The case does appear to be in line with recently leaked schematics of the iPhone 6 with rounded edges and a repositioned lock button. They also show new, longer volume buttons. This case also goes along with the rumors of a larger screen size of 4.7″.
A couple of weeks ago Mac Rumors reported that Japanese magazine, MacFan, published a set of design drawings of two new iPhone models set to be released later this year.
These drawings show two different sizes of iPhone coming in 4.7″ and 5.7″ screens. This goes right along with multiple rumors of Apple planning to release a larger screen iPhone this year.
Mac Rumors have taken these drawings and made image renderings of what these two devices would look like.

Over the past few months, rumors of a ‘premium’ all metal Samsung device being referred to as either the Galaxy F or Galaxy S5 Prime, have been floating around. People were hoping that Samsung was going to release this device alongside the Galaxy S5, similar to what Apple did with the 5S and 5C. Seeing as that was not the case, people have been wondering about the rumors.
Last week GFXBenchmark listed a device with the model number SM-G9065 showing some very nice specs including a 5.2″ 2560 x 1440 display, the new Snapdragon 805 processor running at 2.5 Ghz, 3GB of RAM, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
