Apple iPhone 6S and 6C to Sport 5.7-inch and 4.7-inch Displays, Respectively? Design Rendered Based on Supposed Schematics!

April is a big month for Apple's fiercest competitors in the smartphone market. On April 11, Samsung Galaxy S5 - the Korean Giant's 2014 flagship handset - is set to be released in key territories around the globe including the Philippines. Three days from now, April 5, LG Philippines will hold an exclusive media event to launch its high-end Android phablet, LG G Pro 2. And finally, within this month, Sony will be heavily prepping to bring the much-awaited Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet to the market come early May.

Supporters of these Android smartphone manufacturers will surely have a blast in the next few days. But it seems some Apple fans just aren't keen on letting their rivals have all the fun.

Last weekend, as if on schedule, schematics of what appears to be two variants of the next generation iPhone - with different screen sizes - surfaced online. The image (shown below), which first appeared on the Japanese Apple-centric tech website Macotakara, caused quite a stir on tech blogs and Apple fan sites across the world.

Studying the schematics, it's clear that the smaller variant, which some Apple fans are now calling "iPhone 6C" - in line with iPhone nomenclature that Apple implemented last year, sports a 4.7" display and has dimensions of 137 x 66 x 7 mm. On the other hand, the larger 5.7" model - dubbed as the "iPhone 6S" - measures 157 x 77 x 6.7 mm, which is more or less the same as that of the rumored "iPhone Air" that fellow Apple enthusiasts were talking about earlier this year.

Based on the leaked product draft and iPhone 6S and 6C sketches by Apple fans, Martin Hajek - a designer who visualizes future products in 3D - created these wonderful renders of this year's dual iPhone releases in Slate Grey and Gold.

Amazingly, Hajek's renders appear to reflect the supposed actual iPhone 6S shell design believed to have been photographed by an anonymous insider from a Foxconn facility in China working on Apple's 2014 flagship handset.

Of course, as all of us should know by now, every leaked detail about any upcoming Apple product are but speculative and could well turn out false and inaccurate. The Cupertino-company usually announces its next generation iPhone around September or October of any given year, which - as yet - is still long way from now. But don't worry, TP Friends; Trust that I'll keep you posted on the latest developments about these Apple products in the coming weeks and months.
