The iPhone 6 really won’t be much of a surprise whenever it’s finally revealed since we’ve been seeing leaks showing us its exact shape and size for the past several weeks. However, Nowhereelse.fr has published a new video that was purportedly filmed during Apple’s preparations for its Worldwide Developers Conference next week that the site claims shows a full render of the iPhone 6.

In the first image of the front of the phone, you might think there’s no way to tell whether it’s an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 5s, but the next slide of the back of the phone is quite obviously not any iPhone model currently on the market.

Instead, the look of the device aligns well with the dozens of leaked mockups we’ve seen that supposedly resemble Apple’s upcoming 4.7-inch flagship phone.

The device in the video has more curved edges than the iPhone 5s and the design of the rear housing is nothing like Apple’s current iPhones. That said, the design shown also seems to have more sloped edges on the top and bottom of the device, which is slightly different from some other leaks we’ve seen.

What’s more, the low quality of the video makes it hard to tell anything for certain and it seems strange that Apple would be playing a video showing off the iPhone 6 when it’s preparing for a conference in which it is not expected to show off a new iPhone or any other major new hardware, such as the iWatch or a refreshed Apple TV.

Taken all together, it’s really hard to give this video too much credence — and it could easily be faked.

So, did you think Samsung’s Galaxy Note and Galaxy Mega lines of smartphones were big? You haven’t seen anything yet.SamMobile has spotted a new filing with the Federal Communications Commission showing that Samsung is planning to release a 7-inch — yes, a 7-inch — smartphone this year.

Samsung is getting ready to release its most gigantic phone ever

The device, which is referred to as SM-T2558 in the FCC’s filing, is certainly not the most high-end phone around since its display will only have a 720p resolution and its other specs include a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. SamMobile speculates that this might beSamsung’s sequel to the Galaxy Mega that it released last year that featured a massive 6.3-inch display.

As you can see from the picture posted below, the FCC lists the device as a mobile phone and not a tablet and its design is much closer to that of a Galaxy Note than it is to one of Samsung’s many tablets.

We have no idea when this monstrous beast will actually release but chances are that it’s coming out soon since Samsung phones don’t normally pass through the FCC unless they’re close to being ready to launch. Be sure to check out more pictures of the filing over atSamMobile by clicking the source link below.

Apple has included its iPads in the Apple Store for Education section, 9to5Macreports, meaning that buyers who are either working or studying in higher education can purchase a new iPad Air or iPad mini for less than their regular prices.

Apple’s new iPads are cheaper than ever – if you’re a student

In the U.S., prices for the iPad mini, Retina iPad mini and iPad 4 start at $20 below regular cost, while the iPad Air purchased with education pricing costs $30 less. That means 16GB Wi-Fi versions of Apple’s four iPads available in its online and retail stores will cost $279, $379, $379, and $469, respectively.

The same discounts are available for any other iPad models purchased from Apple.

The deals will be available both in the U.S. and in international markets (in France for example, users can get between 5% and 7% off the regular price with the education program), as long as buyers qualify for such purchases.

Apple has recently expanded its iPad trade-in program in more markets, offering tablet owners the option of handing in their working older-generation iPad for credit that can be used towards the purchase of a new device.

Although it’s not explicitly mentioned, the two programs should be compatible, meaning that iPad owners could turn in their old devices for credit, and then use that credit for new iPad purchases made via Apple’s education program.

Apple won’t have an exciting new iPhone 6 or an iWatch to show off at its annual Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco next week, but it looks like the company will still have a few tricks up its sleeve. Beyond iOS 8, OS X 10.10 and a mysterious new device, Apple will reportedly unveil a brand new smart home platform, according to a new report.

Apple to unveil new smart home platform at WWDC next week

The Financial Times on Monday reported that Apple is ready to unveil “a new software platform” that will allow iPhone users to control lights, appliances and security systems in their homes. FT’s anonymous sources say that the move is a “big play” that will compete with rival offerings from Google and Samsung, and the solution will be shown off during Apple’s WWDC keynote on June 2nd.

The report notes that Apple’s solution will also include common automation features that are currently found in many similar offerings that are already on the market. For example, the system could be set to automatically turn on several lights when a user gets home and his or her iPhone is detected.

FT doesn’t specify whether or not Apple’s iBeacon technology will be utilized by this new platform.

Apple is reportedly working with several unspecified device makers, which will offer appliances and accessories for the company’s new smart home platform.

If leaks are correct, HTC is preparing to launch a bigger, faster version of its flagship One M8. Details about the so-called One M8 Prime have been surfacing in recent weeks, with @evleaks leading the charge. The most recent piece of evidence is a full 360-degree render of the phone. And all it takes is one look to tell that this is a major departure from the One M8 released in March. At first glance, it almost looks less premium than the regular model, which is a bit odd for a product that everyone's referring to as "Prime."

The design isn't quite as seamless as the One M8, and nothing highlights that more than the camera. It now noticeably protrudes from the body, and that hump is made incredibly obvious by the orange circle surrounding it. It might not look pretty — and is a strange move from a company so obsessed with every detail — but hopefully this means HTC has finally moved on (and up) from the 4-megapixel sensor that it's used since last year. Focus gimmicks aside, the camera is really the only big knock against an otherwise gorgeous and impressive One M8.

Leaks suggest that HTC will also look to match Samsung and Sony with a water-resistant design on the M8 Prime, thanks in part to what @evleaks describes as an "exotic material" that's a composite of aluminum and liquid silicone. Other rumored improvements include a 5.5-inch display with QHD (1440x2560) resolution, 3GB of RAM, and an improved LTE radio that could pull down faster data speeds for users. Unfortunately it's not yet clear when HTC plans to officially reveal the One M8 Prime, or which parts of the world it will be available in.

Let's be real -- Apple's iPhone launches aren't anyordinary product launches. These launches are once-per-year extravaganzas that garner investor, consumer, and media interest in a way that is quite unlike any product that has ever come before it. Samsung brags about selling in 10 million Galaxy S5 phones within 25 days, but Apple's iPhone 6 is likely to blow away even that number on "opening weekend" -- breaking Apple's own enviable record.

iPhone 6 will be the perfect compromise
While many harp on Apple for not releasing a large iPhone sooner, the financials don't lie – people are absolutely loving their 4-inch iPhones. If Apple has product that generates more profit than any of its competitors, and continues to defy the rather pessimistic expectations out there, why should Apple be in any rush to change it?

The iPhone 5 brought a new chassis that really propelled iPhone forward, and iPhone 5s refined and tuned that chassis, brought Touch ID and the world's fastest mobile processor, and led Apple to post record revenues, yet again. With the upcoming iPhone 6, Apple will most likely build upon this base of loyal customers and, in the process, likely gain share against large-screened competitors. If the rumors of a 4.7-inch iPhone are true, then this could very well strike a near-perfect compromise to win over those who enjoy the current 4-inch form factor, and those who want increased screen real-estate (but not too much).

What about the iPad? Won't this cannibalize iPad sales?
There is an argument out there that goes a little something like this:

  • People who buy large phones are less likely to buy tablets
  • If Apple releases a large iPhone, customers will be less likely to buy iPads
  • Therefore, Apple should avoid releasing a large iPhone

Now, hold up a second. First of all, if the above argument were true, then Samsung certainly hasn't gotten the memo; it sells many tablets and smartphones across all screen sizes and price points and both its smartphone and tablet sales continue to climb to new highs.

Applying this to Apple will likely yield the same results, except Apple is, if anything, furtherinsulated from that cannibalization impact. iPad has significant market share in enterprise and in schools, and the usage models that drive that are unlikely to be satisfied by a 4.7-inch smartphone. Further, in settings such as education, getting each student (or classroom) a $650+ iPhone coupled with a cellular plan certainly isn't viable. The 7.9-inch and 9.7-inch iPads serve a different purpose than a 4.7-inch phone.

The cannibalization argument, while perhaps valid for a small subset of the population, just doesn't really hold water.

Market share opportunity is larger than cannibalization risk
More to the point on the cannibalization argument is simply that there is a very large market of Samsung Galaxy S/Note type products that Apple can begin to take share away from. Each win of a $650+, 40%-50% gross margin iPhone away from a Galaxy S or a Galaxy Note is worth about two to three iPad Mini with Retina Display gross margin dollars.

So, if Apple grows iPhone sales by 20 million-30 million units per year as a result of the larger iPhone, it would need to wipe away many times that in iPad sales given that the gross margins on the iPad are more along the lines of 20%-30%, and the ASPs are lower. Since a total wipeout of iPad sales as a result of a larger iPhone is extremely unlikely, Apple would be remiss to avoid a larger iPhone to "save" iPad.

Foolish bottom line
Apple's larger iPhone 6 is set to break records when it debuts. It will not only provide a compelling reason for folks with iPhone 4s, 5, and even 5s devices to upgrade, but it will likely bring back those who defected to Android in search of a larger screen. On top of that, thanks to a very efficient iOS, coupled with Apple adopting new technologies like 802.11ac and LTE-Advanced about a year after the component launches, Apple should see a pretty reasonable cost increase in moving from iPhone 5s to iPhone 6, limiting the initial gross margin hit.

Brace yourselves for what will probably be the biggest iPhone launch in Apple's history -- it's going to be epic.
