Dimensions of Apple’s 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones leak

“French Apple website IGen.fr has shared a variety of new details about Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6, including dimensions for each model, info about the protruding camera ring on the rear of both devices, and more,” Richard Padilla reports for MacRumors. “The photos appear to be of internal information residing in a Foxconn factory, as the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 and 4.7-inch iPhone 6 carry code names of N56 and N61, respectively.”

“The information states that the final version of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will measure 158 mm long, 78 mm wide, and 7.1 mm thick (7.7 with the protruding camera), weighing 184.6 grams, or 6.5 ounces. Also spotted is information for a first prototype, which retained the same length and width but was 7.0 mm thick and weighed 168.5 grams, or 5.9 ounces,” Padilla reports. “Meanwhile, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is said to measure at 138 mm long, 66 mm wide, and 6.9 mm thick, as the weight of the device is not listed. For comparison, the iPhone 5s measures 123×58 mm and is 7.6 mm thick. ”

MacDailyNews Take: That extra millimeter on the iPhone 4.7-inch is supported by a Reuters report today about delays due to a display issue:

“Apple, aiming for the thinnest phone possible, initially wanted to cut back to a single layer of backlight film, instead of the standard two layers, for the 4.7-inch screen, which went into mass production ahead of the 5.5-inch version,” Reuters reports. “But the new configuration was not bright enough and the backlight was sent back to the drawing board to fit in the extra layer, costing precious time and temporarily idling some screen assembly operations, the source said.”

    1. Hate is a powerful emotion that hurts you just as much as anyone else. Let it go. Buy the iPhone you like best and allow others to do the same. Apple, it if is listening to ALL its potential customers, would serve us with a decent selection. So far, Apple really hasn’t, and lack of screen size options is one of the main reasons that Android sufferers cite as the reason they decided not to go with Apple. It’s time Apple stepped up and offered everyone what they really want — that includes both a larger screen option and also at least a 128 GB phone option as well. The vast majority of us also would strongly like Apple to consider offering a model with a bigger battery. We can handle the addition 3 millimeters of thickness it might take to offset the battery-sucking services that make a phone “smart” and which Apple continues to promote, but then pretend that users are supposed to keep turned off all the time in order to keep their phone alive all day long.

  1. I find the iPhone 5S to be too thin already. I had to get a case for it just so it would stop slipping out of my hands. My personal preference would be a a mm thicker and use that space for bigger battery. But of course will place order for 4.7 screen as soon as technically possible……

  2. With all the speculation that Apple will release a smart watch i find it strange we get supposed leaks of the iPhone 6 but nothing of the watch.

    Could it be Apple strategically leaking iPhone info in order to keep the watch from public attention until its announced at a keynote event.
    Or the watch doesn’t exist at all and the iPhone 6 leaks are due to a lack of security from Apples suppliers. But surly the suppliers who leak info of the upcoming iPhone would be held to task by Apple for breaking some sort of NDA.

  3. This is in no way an iPhone 6. There is no way these are images from FoxConn as they are mere cartoons, not engineering drawings from a CADCAM program a manufacturer would be using. No way would a manufacturer have to compare a new model to the old model. That would be a function of marketing, not in FoxConn’s purview at all. . . and not their concern for design, either, which is done in Cupertino. No way would Apple make an iPhone that is wider than is absolutely necessary, which is what those rounded side frames do, adding at least an eighth of an inch or more to the width and length. . . and adding material for weight. They extend far beyond the bezel. . . Unnecessarily so. Even on the curved sides of the iPad Air, the curve does not extend beyond the perimeter of the starting point. This is a design no one with taste would develop. . . certainly not Apple.

    That is a drawing of a Chinese Android phone called the

    Goophone i6 Chinese Knock-Off clone

    It is in no way going to be the iPhone 6. Use your heads and research ability, pundits!
