Alleged iPhone 6 chassis leaks on video, this time with the Apple logo cutout

Alleged iPhone 6 chassis leaks on video, this time with the Apple logo cutout
Ever wondered where the smorgasbord of iPhone 6 and iPad dummies and mockups that are deluging the Internets these days is coming from? These mimic the alleged design of the 4.7" iPhone 6, the 5.5" Apple phablet, and the upcoming new iPad, down to the last button placement, and are said to be a faithful representation, based on real schematics.

Well, it turns out they are coming from China (surprise, surprise), and there's a bunch of those on the bulk retailer AliExpress, ranging from $30 for the basic 4.7" iPhone 6 mockup, to between $150-$190 for those golden 5.5" phablet bodies you've seen here and there. The dummies are said to be based on real 3D molds and Apple schematics, likely distributed to case and accessory makers from rogue supply chain sources, like it has happened so many times before. 

It's not exactly clear if the schematics themselves are the finalized design that Apple will use on the upcoming iPhone and iPad editions, or based on earlier prototypes, so take the latest iPhone 6 chassis leak that you see in the video below with the typical salty grain. It's worth noting that this latest video includes the Apple logo cutout, whereas previous mockups didn't have anything stamped on the back, so the chassis concept seen here, might very well be based on something nearer to the final retail version.

Looks much better with the lines blending in with the color of the back. Add an edge to edge screen and this thing is golden!

I don't think the final version will have the bands following the curves at the top and bottom. On the iP5s the glass butts directly to the aluminum with no bands, not sure why you can't have the same on this. Maybe it has something to do with water proofing.

That's because the signal could go through the glass. You didn't need a band.

The bands are a hideous cover for the antennae that the phone needs for telephony and data. They aren't for style but to allow signal reception, just like the hideous "dual tone" portions from the iPhone 5/s.

You don't really think that, you just want green thumbs. Don't even know if that's the final device.

+1 darkjedi, I'm tired of this lame IOS bashing.

He wasn't bashing iOS though....and he is right it is incredibly hideous and a lot of iFans also agree with that as far as I've seen.

Doesn't matter if it's IOS or IPhone, to some it's the trend and cool to bash anything remotely Apple.

So any criticism is de facto bashing? Not sure what I think yet myself. Waiting for a final build before I decide. But I do reserve the right to criticize if I feel it is warranted

No matter what the final design looks like, the fandroid faithful will bash it. It's a forgone conclusion. +1

Apple is pissing me off with those huge bezels. Why apple? Everyone is trying so hard to minimize bezels but you guys are so stubborn. If those bezels remain the same I'll pass and hold on to my iPhone 5. Will get a note 4 instead.

After having some time with the dummies I gotta say this iphone is way better than it was before. It doesn't feel awkward to hold it sits nicely in my hand. Here's an image of the 4.7" dummy in my hand http://i.imgur.com/kSJfSA1.jpg My girlfriend's hand in comparison http://i.imgur.com/BppQHSU.jpg

To darkkjedii - you are correct about the s5 having huge bezels. But the effect is magnified in the case of the iPhone 5s bcoz of the tiny size of the device. IPhone versions thus far have the largest top n bottom bezels in proportion to both screen size as well as the height of the phone
