IPhone 6 Rumor Roundup: IPod-like Design, Water-resistant Body

It’s an iPhone 6 leak type of weekdiscontinue - our inbox was buried with all sorts of tips about Apple’s upcoming smartphone.

After getting compared to the iPhone 5s and the Galaxy S5, the iPhone 6 now sits besides the iPod touch. These alleged comparison shots create the design cues the recent smartphone model takes from its music player cousin all the more obvious.

Additional iPhone 5s / 6 comparison shots made their way out of China along with dimensions - 138 x 67 x 7mm. That’s considerably larger than the 135.3 x 71.9 x 6.1mm we estimated from the earlier leak.

Keep in mind that this recent iPhone is assumed to have a 4.7” screen, accounting for the larger size.

Apple security in China seems to have really broken down as an iPhone 6 dummy was photographed all around a city. Note that this could also be an upcoming knockoff of the iPhone 6 (remember the iploxe?).

You can see all photos of the city tour at the Moscoat forum, but these in particular caught our eye. First off, the iPhone 6 gets dunked in water - either becautilize it will be water resistant or becautilize this is a non-working dummy - and then it gets sized up against the iPhone 5s and HTC One (M8).
