I suspect that there's a technical/functional reason behind the increased thickness of the antenna separations. Maybe it will also act as a shock absorber and reduce the possibility of breaking the screen if the iPhone 6 is dropped on one of its corners?
What if the separation is made from a new RF transparent LiquidMetal alloy? (OK maybe not)
I'm pretty sure every single design consideration for the phone was made for extremely good reasons - I suggest you don't second guess these decisions when you dont have any info behind them, especially when you have no clue if this is even the final design.
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.
ENOUGH OF THIS.
