The video in question – posted on French website nowhereelse.fr – depicts a 4.7-inch screen being bent in a way that would make current iPhone models wince.

However, given the strength of rumours of a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, it seems odd that this variant wasn't shown off in the video as well. 

The iPhone 6 is expected to come with Apple's 64-bit, A7 chip and 128GB of built-in storage. September 19th still seems many analysts most popular release date for the new iPhone.
