If a dozen independent reports from insiders, analysts and some of the most respected newspapers in the world are to be believed, Apple will launch two completely redesigned iPhones in 2014. The first will be an iPhone 6 that debuts in September with a thinner housing, a 4.7-inch display and a sleek new design. Then, sometime ahead of the holidays, Apple is expected to release a second new iPhone model with a similar look and an even bigger 5.5-inch screen.

We have seen plenty of leaks surrounding these supposed new iPhone models, and the latest one gives us a good idea of just how much bigger Apple’s new iPhones will be compared to the company’s current handsets.

Apple knew all the way back in 2012 that smartphone users wanted larger displays. In an internal slide, Apple admitted that “consumers want what we don’t have,” and it likely began developing iPhone 6 prototypes around that time.

Now, in 2014, we may finally get to see if Apple can follow as well as it leads.

Following a leaked set of schematics that supposedly revealed the exact sizes and designs of both new iPhone models, we have seen a number of leaks that reveal what might be in store from Apple this fall. The latest such leak comes from the CookieCoffee blog in Thailand, which claims to have procured a pair of next-generation iPhone cases.

A series of photos published on the site show both cases, which are believed to have been made using models that accurately represent the final designs of both 2014 iPhones. The dark pink silicone case seen in the photos is intended for Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model, and the hard plastic case is intended for the 5.5-inch iPhone.

In some photos, you can also see an iPhone 5s placed in a case to illustrate the size difference.

Several leaked photos can be seen below and more details can be found on CookieCoffee, which is linked down in our source section.
