More fuel on the fire: Leaked schematics point to a supersized iPhone 6

Even though we’re several months away from Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 6, that doesn’t mean there are plenty of rumors to mill over. One specific rumor alleges that there will be two iPhone 6 models: one with a 4.7-inch display and one with a 5.5-inch display. Throw another log on the fire because yet another leak has come out strongly hinting at a larger iPhone. acquired a document from a Chinese website that shows an alleged schematic design for the iPhone 6. The schematic purports a length of 5.9 inches and a width of 3.3 inches, a significant jump from the iPhone 5S, which comes in at 4.87 x 2.32 inches. According to the French blog, the dimensions would put the iPhone 6’s display with a diagonal of at least 5 inches.

As mentioned before, the schematic’s dimensions don’t exactly line up with what others have reported, though it’s possible that Apple is playing around with different dimensions. Even so, all rumors indicate that the iPhone 6 will be the largest iPhone Apple has made, finally addressing the competition’s insistence on larger screens for their handsets. Nokia, LG, HTC, and even BlackBerry have all released bigger-sized handsets, with the iPhone 5S looking smaller with each passing day.
