We're still firmly in the 'rumours' stage of course, with little in the way of official announcements from Apple itself. But one usually reliable Twitter source – OnLeaks – has what he claims to be some leaked visuals.

Beyond that let's round up the likely features, based on these photos and the predictions of assorted industry experts, shall we?

  • No home button, with the screen going to the edges of the handset
  • Duel camera on top of each other, not side by side
  • An all white model, and glass panels in place of the aluminium back
  • Wireless charging (finally!)
  • Facial recognition
  • OLED screen (resulting in improved display and better colour reproduction)
  • A 'Thermos panel' on the back that can brew you a cup of coffee

OK we made one of those up.
