    More grist for the mill:

    Touchscreen and casing issues could leave the 4.7" iPhone 6 as the only model to debut in September.

    I guess we'll wait and see.

    Have we ever had an iPhone release and not read about issues that could delay it?

    So there may be 2 iPhone launches in 1 year? It's hard to believe.

    Or there may be no 5.5" iPhone 6 at all.

    Disastrous, at least to me. I need Apple to release a beast of a phablet even if I don't purchase it (but I'm not ruling it out) to ensure Samsung stays competitive and/or does something about their mediocre designs/construction.

    Hopefully this means they will implement 128 GB storage on the 4.7 inch i6.

    I see now why for months, we've been seeing leaked parts for the 4.7" iPhone 6, but none for the 5.5" model. This changes my game plan. I was planning to get the 4.7" model in February on contract with Verizon. Odd as it sounds, I may just wait a bit longer (save more $), and get the 5.5" when it's finally released. I'll just have to get me a few pair of Cargo Pants. :D

    If there are two sizes I hope the specs are the same, apart maybe from battery obviously. I don't want to have to make the decision on which one based on anything other than the screen size I need.

    Exactly! Only it appears the larger 5.5" may not be released until later in 2015. So we won't know if the specs, other than screen size, will be the same when the 4.7" is released in September. Will that affect your buying plan? Do you buy the 4.7" or wait and see to make your choice?

    I had a note 3 for a while and while that big screen is brilliant when you're at home or wanting to show it off to someone it gets really annoying when you're out and about doing anything. It fits in your pocket sure but it does restrict certain movements. So 4.7 looks like the sweet spot for me. I think I'll just go for that, assuming the rumours are correct.

    Who needs cargo pants. Just get yourself one of these fine looking fanny packs to store your phone.
