A daring leak artist infiltrated a Foxconn facility and came out with photos of computer displays showing elaborate, authentic data sheets detailing Apple’s upcoming 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones’ designs and dimensions. And from the looks of it, Apple will be rolling out its thinnest iPhones ever!
With that out of the way, let’s get into the leaked images. The first photograph shows the N51, which is the good old iPhone 5s sized 4.87 x 2.31 x 0.3 inches (123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm) at a weight of 3.95oz (112 grams).
The N51 is followed by the N61, which has to be the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, measuring 5.44 x 2.64 x 0.27 inches (138.14 x 66.97 x 6.9 mm). The iPhone has grown substantially taller, a bit wider, and slightly thinner, but its weight is unknown.
Finally, the N56 is the iPhone 6 with 5.5-inch display in the form of two prototypes. The first prototype measures 6.2 x 2.64 x 0.27 inches (158.0 x 77.12 x 7 mm) at a weight of 5.94 Oz (168.5 grams). The second prototype measures 6.22 x 3.06 x 0.27 inches (158.07 x 77.79 x 7.1 mm) at a weight of 6.5 Oz (184.6 grams).
This information goes in tune with previous rumors of the next iPhone being 0.27 inches (7mm) thin.
The second and third photographs contain two interesting bits of information we weren’t supposed to know before September. First, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 (N56) is depicted with the same design we know from the various “dummy” models we’ve seen over the summer. The next iPhone’s look is pretty much set in stone at this point, although we’re still curious whether Apple will cover up those plastic bands somehow, or leave them naked.
The second bit is that the N56 is described as being 0.3 inches (7.67mm) thick with the camera on its back taken into account.
