It’s the iPhone dummy model season. 

Just days ago, we saw what Apple’s upcoming 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones look like, thanks to some dummy models shared by leaker Ben Geskin

Now, we’re treated to (different) dummy models of the same devices in a short video, shared by leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (via Tigermobiles.com). 

The most notable difference between the new and the old dummy models is that this time, we get to see the 6.1-inch model — the one with the single rear camera — in white color.

Size difference aside, the 6.5-inch dummy is a dead ringer for the iPhone X. Both dummies have a noticeable camera bump, which — to my eyes — looks to be the same size as the one on the iPhone X. 

Of course, the big differentiator (besides the single vs. dual rear camera) on this two devices will likely be the screen: The 6.1-inch model is rumored to have a cheaper, LCD screen, while the 6.5-inch and the 5.8-inch model will likely have an OLED screen, just like the iPhone X. The screen notch is visible on these dummy models, but their screens otherwise look identical, down to the bezels. 

Dummy models don’t have to be an exact representation of the real thing — they’re probably based on schematics that leaked somewhere in Apple’s supply chain — but they give us a good idea of what the actual devices will look like. 

Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones in the fall. The 5.8-inch model will likely be an evolutionary upgrade to the iPhone X. The 6.5-inch will be the top model, and will definitely be interesting due to its sheer size — Apple has never launched a phone with a screen nearly as big. And the 6.1-inch model, while having slightly more modest specs, will be exciting due to its price, which should be considerably lower than the price of the other two iPhones.
