    One of the biggest mysteries that surrounds Apple's September 9th event, is what to expect for the iPhone 6 phablet that's been rumored. Most of the leaks we've seen in both parts and mockups have been focused on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, and that makes sense since it begun mass production a couple of weeks ago. It's hard to predict if Apple does have anything ready for September 9 when it comes to the 5.5-inch model, but new images and videos have might shed some light. Today we see a leaked video of what is supposed to be the back shell of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6. It's hard to predict if this ...
