Couldn't it work for a 4.7" iPhone?

Its metal. The green is a protective layer. 

Probably still fake though cause those antenna separations are horrible.

Imagination much?

I think the same as the previous mock-ups: hideous antenna cuts.
I'll skip this iPhone generation if this happens to be the real design.
I like the rounded edges, though

May be Apple logo will be made out of sapphire glass to be used as hearbeat scanner or some other health related input devic

Huh? It's obviously cut out, you can see the shadow.

No; the image comparison shows it’s way too big, yeah?

I absolutely hate the idea, too–I’m a gall darn purist, after all. But they don’t think people will be able to get to it if it’s up there, which isn’t true.

This is the new iphone. No doubt about it. It will look amazing in person. With Apple it is all about the details, and the detailing will be brilliant. All the wailing about the thickness if the antenna bands is silly. Wait until it is in your hand.

I'm really curious about the Apple logo cutout. I wonder if there will be some sort of lighted sensor there for health features? I'm probably in the minority, but a lighted Apple logo on the back would be cool. I'm sure Apple can figure out a way to use the screen light as the light source for a lighted Apple logo.

ive never even spent one second looking at it let alone worrying about it. who cares if the rear logo has fingerprints on it!? talk about first world problems....

i dont think so -- you dont get this many different models and images that look just the same. just like, oh, every previous set of leaked photos for each prev generation that also turned out to be real.

why do you think the didnt? it's not very difficult to imagine both diodes in a single round encloser.

guess you didnt see this case that uses "free" electromagnetic energy already coming out of the phone:

...so it doesnt waste any power. 

 

doesnt mean they will, but thats not why they wouldnt.

why on earth not? of all the technical achievements apple has made, this is the one thing you cant conceive of them doing?

Based on the shadow inside the apple this is definitely a cutout.

Enlarge the logo and turn it sideways- I swear there's a child or a ghost in there. Looks like Casper.

To me it just doesn't seem to be the same proportions as the 5s maybe its cause I'm using a lifeproof case. But the size of the camera lens and the flash seems odd to me.

That's pretty stinking awesome!

The breaks are too wide. Every purported leak has these. Grrrr

Why not have 2mm of plastic on the bottom and top? Oh well, Apple can afford to make a phone that some people don't like, since they're finally releasing a big phone.

What if the separation is made from a new RF transparent LiquidMetal alloy? 1smile.gif (OK maybe not)

That's exactly my thoughts. Some sort of shock absorber. A screen that never breaks (from drops) or scratches. Huge selling point.

The two above replies are the correct responses

Apple is not going to use an inferior flash on a new model of their flagship phone. There are lots of dual element LEDs out there but the typical usage is as indicators like on the AirPort Extreme, green and yellow.  Apple has probably had a dual element LED custom made for the spectrum they want. The standard incandescent white LED is 4500 K and the pale white is 6500 K. When you combine them you get 5500 K depending on the intensity of each element, which is almost exactly natural light. As an example in the printing business, viewing booths use 5000 K. I'm not claiming this is what they have done but it is entirely possible.

 

I can't think of any reason that the two LEDs need to be separated in order to blend. LEDs can be very tiny. Some dual element LEDs are only .75 mm so they can fit in a 1 mm hole no problem.

I'd love to see an Apple logo on the iPad and iPhone that changed colour according to the weather outside. Or according to your mood; in fact, customisable so it could change colour according to any parameter that you so desired. Useless but fun.
