Word of a new iPhone with 128 gigabytes of NAND flash built by Toshiba first appeared in a pair of documents obtained by GeekBar, and spotlighted Thursday by G for Games.

A batch of photos out of Asia on Wednesday supposedly reveal a rear shell bound for Apple's "iPhone 6" and show a direct comparison between another alleged handset part.

Until now, most unconfirmed parts leaks have been related to the 4.7-inch next-generation handset. As...
