5.5-Inch Apple iPhone 6 Phablet Surfaces on Twitter : Leaker Says Jimmy Lin's iPhone6 Photos Are Fake

I can't remember where I heard about it first -- but rumors about Apple working on two different-sized variants of the next generation iPhone have been going around the web since the start of the year.

We've already seen photos of the 4.7-inch Apple iPhone 6 dummy; Various tech websites, blogs, and vlogs in the US have been showing us images of the "device" since May 2014. Last week, Taiwanese celebrity Jimmy Lim even uploaded a few shots of the smaller version of the 2014 iPhone on his Weibo account.

Today, we're seeing purported photos of the 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6 phablet variant for the first time.

Just a few hours ago, Australian online personality and notorious Apple product leaker, Sonny Dickson, posted mock-up shots of what appears to be the Cupertino company's upcoming phablet beside the regular-sized 4.7-inch next-gen iPhone on his Twitter page.

Needless to say, the two variants have the exact same ergonomics and design identity.

He didn't really disclose where he got the items nor talked about the upcoming iDevices' technical specifications -- but he did publish an interesting photo blog comparing the iPhone 6 mock-up to older generations of the iPhones and the iPod Touch 5G, as well as the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5 to complement his Tweets.

And apparently, Sonny also talked to Forbes and slammed Jimmy Lin for spreading fake leaks. He told Forbes contributor Jay McGregor, "[Jimmy's] phone is clearly a dummy, all his leaks are fake and nothing he has posted was real."

At this point, I honestly don't know (and don't care) who's telling the truth. All I know is that these leaks are becoming really consistent -- and looking back at what happened last year, I have this gut feeling that the design we're seeing is already close to what will be shown to us at Tim Cook's iPhone 6 keynote this Q3 (or early Q4) 2014.
