Chinese site C Technology posted two images of what could be the metal frame of the next Apple smartphone. The photos were later picked up by GizChina.com.
The frame looks noticeably bigger than that of the iPhone 5S, echoing previous reports that the new iPhone could accommodate a 4.7-inch screen.
The images also show a particularly thin shell, fueling rumors that the device could have a thickness of only 6 mm.
As usual, the rumor should be taken with a grain of salt.
