Apple's iPhone 6 shown for the first time in leaked Russian YouTube video

A Russian blog has released what is most likely the world's first legitimate footage of Apple’s new iPhone 6 in an in depth three and half minute video showing the device from every angle.

The tech giant's flagship smartphone, the iPhone 6, was revealed after the insightful footage was uploaded onto YouTube by Russian tech blog, Rozetked, on Monday.

The leak appeared the week before Apple launches new products, including two iPhone 6s and the rumorediWatch, at a launch event at Cupertino, California 9 September.

The clip compared the iPhone 6, with a screen size of 4.7 inches, to the smaller current generation iPhone 5S model with the footage marking the first instance the device has been leaked in its entirety. Previously, individual components such as the screen and the casing were released.

Additionally, the new model was both wider and longer yet thinner than previous smartphones from the Californian company, with the larger device further enhanced by rounded edges for in-hand comfort.

Unfortunately the video provided no footage of Apple's soon-to-be-announced 5.5 inch phablet, a smartphone designed to compete with Samsung and Microsoft’s extra-large displays.

The iPhone 6 will also come with a tap-to-pay mobile wallet feature after Apple recently signed agreements with major finance companies - including American Express on Monday.
