Is this the iPhone 6? Handset looks thin, much larger than 5S

For all the rumors we’ve heard about what to expect from the next iPhone(s), all the supposed leaks, and all the Apple patents that might point us in the direction of what to expect, we really haven’t had much in the way of hard evidence to check out. Where are all images sneaking their way out from Apple’s manufacturing partners, revealing to us the iPhone 6 much in the same way they did last year with those models? Tonight a number of really interesting pics arrive, and they very well could give us an early look at a quite large iPhone 6.

Sonny Dickson tweeted out a few teaser pics this evening before posting more to his site, revealing a very slim frame that sure seems to match the sort of manufacturing work we’ve seen for Apple products in the past. While he admits that he’s “not 100% sure” that this really is the iPhone 6 back panel, it definitely looks the part.

9to5 Mac had the clever idea of using the size of those camera and dual-LED flash cutouts to establish just how large a handset we’re looking at; as you can see in the overlaid comparison below, assuming Apple uses components roughly the same size as those in the 5S, we’re looking at a significantly larger phone. Sure, that’s what we’ve been hearing to expect, but seeing it like this is something entirely different from simple speculation. Are you ready for a larger iPhone?
