On any given day the web is buxzzing with a new rumor about the next mobile device or technical advance. Of those rumor none grows faster then the speculation on what the next iPhone has in-store for us. It was just a few short months after the iPhone 5s was announced there were already rumors of what we can expect with the iPhone 6.

The rumors at the time were that we would be getting two iPhones that would have 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays. With new leaked part images it would seem that those rumors were indeed true and Apple will joining in the 'Phablet' age. It was the online blog MacRumor that first posted the leaked photos of the flex cable for two smartphones.

The rumor weren't just limited to the size of the iPhone(s). Earlier this week online newspaper The Gardian reported that the new iPhone(s) could come with a sapphire glass blend. In the article they talked to Prof Neil Alford of the department of materials at imperial College London. 18 months ago Apple had consulted with the professor.

“Apple has patents for both sapphire lamination – taking two different cuts of sapphire to induce strain and increase its resilience – and for fusing quartz or silica (glass) to sapphire,” Alford explained to the Guardian. “So they could certainly do that.”

According to some of the other rumored features that we can expect are a 8MP primary camera and a secondary camera for video chatting. It will reportedly also run Apple's A8 dual-core 2GHz processor. Just like the previous iPhone it is expect to have 2GB of RAM and come in models with 16/32/64 and 128 GB of internal storage.
