The smart money for the iPhone 6 has been on the idea that Apple would be performing a fairly major redesign of the device, which is somewhat standard operating procedure for Apple every two years. Now, a report from Japanese blog Mac Otakara is claiming that …

The diagrams revealed by the FCC suggest that the V700 has a landscape display (possibly around 10 inches – but that’s nothing more than a wild guess), while the V400 sports a portrait display – just like the G Pad 8.3. Rear cameras are visible on both …
