Computerised renderings allegedly of the iPhone 6 have leaked onto Chinese website Wei Feng.

The pictures show an iPhone with a 4.7-inch display and measurements of 138 x 67mm. This falls in line with recent rumours that Apple release two new iPhones; one with a 4.7-inch display and the other with a 5.5-inch.

According to the above image the iPhone 6 will also be going back to its roots and feature rounded edges much like the first generation iPhone and the iPhone 3G. The current iPad Air, iPhone 5C and iPod touch all sport-rounded edges, whereas the iPhone 5s is the only model to have square edges.

What is also clear from the renders is that the camera hole looks larger than that of the 5s, most likely to fit the new 10-megapixel camera that has been rumoured. Also if these renders are to be believed then the dual flash seems to have gone back to the old circular design rather than the cylindrical one that we see in the 5s.

What has been rumoured quite a lot recently but isn't clear from these renders is that Apple might be moving the sleep/wake button to the right hand side of the device. Keeping the button in its current position with the new sizes would surely make it impossible (unless you have giant hands) to access using just one hand. With the button on the right users will have no problem sleeping and waking up their iPhone.

The back of the device is understood to be made of three aluminium pieces along with two antenna breaks. The rear does look quite unusual for an Apple product, but the antenna breaks are essential for the phone to be able to receive any signals.

It's believed that Apple will launch the iPhone 6 in two stages. Reportedly the 4.7-inch model will be released in August and the 5.5-inch version will come out in September.
