iPhone 6 case shows new iPhone dimensions?

It's still nothing more than a rumor (although backed by a physical case) but if this proves to be true, you might have to start preparing for a bigger iPhone. Over the years we've seen several cases of case makers (no pun intended) leaking products that showed the world how future devices were going to be. Considering we're still a long way from the next iPhone generation (unless Apple decides to go back to June/July launches instead of September/October) I'd take this with a large grain of salt.

This alleged iPhone 6 case shows us how a possible iPhone 6 with a 4.7" screen would look like, being noticeably larger than the actual iPhone 5S, and even slightly larger than a Nexus 5 though not as large as a Note 3. Considering the Nexus 5 has a 4.95", these dimensions might be explained by the fact that the iPhone needs quite a bit of space below the screen to have a Touch ID home button.

Even so, the size difference seems to be too much to be consensual... if this was going to be the "large" iPhone 6 instead of the "little" one, I'd understand. But if this is the smaller of the rumored iPhone 6 versions, then the larger 5.7" would become huge.

The case has a few other interesting tidbits. The case shows us a thinner device than a iPhone 5S, which would make such a large device even more incredible to hold (though I'd trade a few mm for a larger battery), and the power/sleep button seems to have moved from the top to the side - something I also find very suspicious.

We'll see how thing pan out when the iPhone 6 becomes a reality. But if it proves to be such a "huge" beast... what do you think about it?
