Two apart “leaks” out of China on Saturday presumably uncover operational versions of Apple’s next-generation iPhone, including images of what appears to be credit label or mobile payments support for Passbook.


A set of photos posted to Chinese website cnBeta.com, sourced from Weibo user “zzray, purportedly offers one of a first looks during a entirely organic next-generation 4.7-inch iPhone.

Along with a corresponding comparison with Apple’s stream iPhone 5s, a print set includes shots of what looks to be an iOS 8 home shade scaled to 4.7-inches, App Store app and ubiquitous phone information.
