iPhone 6 Rumors

We can finally see it now — the light at the end of the tunnel. The seemingly unending flood of leaks and rumors surrounding Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 handsets will, in fact, soon come to an end. Apple is scheduled to unveil one or both new iPhone models next week during a big press conference on September 9th and then we can finally move on… to iPhone 6s rumors. In the meantime, however, we can expect plenty more leaks between now and next Tuesday, the latest of which examines the aluminum housing said to be from Apple’s upcoming 5.5-inch iPhone phablet.

FROM EARLIER: Watch a fully assembled iPhone 6 boot up for the very first time

French blog on Monday published a video in which someone takes a hands-on look at what is claimed to be the rear housing from Apple’s upcoming larger iPhone model. Some call it the iPhone Air and others call it the iPhone 6L — it likely won’t launch with either of those names — but all we really know is that the handset will be Apple’s first foray into the phablet segment.

The larger 2014 iPhone model is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display and specs similar to the main iPhone 6, which is believed to sport a new A8 processor, 1GB of RAM and NFC for Apple’s new mobile payment platform.

Leaked footage of the larger iPhone 6 case follows below.
