Filip Truta is reporting that a French site has gotten a hold of leaked documents that detail the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhones. The leak alleges that the iPhones will come in 2 version N56 and N61 models 402/401 and will have sapphire covering the front and back of the device. This development if it is indeed true opens the door up significantly for other options including solar charging. I’ve followed Filip’s work for a while and this isn’t the first time he brought up the idea of Apple returning to a double sided glass iPhone and it only makes sense if sapphire is going to be used.

Leaked Image of Schematics can be found here
The talented Martin Hajek, tapped by the Frenchies at Nowhereelse.fr (who obtained the leaked documents), has created a few mockups based on the purported schematic. He achieved the image displayed above (click to enlarge).
“…assuming that the illustrations below are true, the iPhone 6 would be declined in two versions (N56 / N61 and 402/401 models) respectively equipped with a screen of 4.7 inches and 5.5 of diagonal,” according to the French site.
“Visibly thinner than the current iPhone 5s (7.1mm thick according to my source), first note that the edges of the iPhone are slightly curved unlike those of previous generations with four slices were flat,” reads a rough machine translation of the report.
