Alleged iPhone 6 chassis rear poses for a picture

22
If you need more proof that an iPhone 6 with an alleged 4.7" display is coming down the pipe, look no further than the increased intensity of leaks and rumors about it. The other day we heard that the iPhone 6 will enter mass production in July, so that enough units are ready for the release in September, and now we are getting the eventual back cover of the handset, courtesy of an Apple device repair shop Down Under.

If this piece on the right turns out credible, it will confirm the previous chassis leaks we've had, indicating a larger, thinner handset, with two separated areas top and bottom. The upcoming iPhone seems to be made out entirely of metal this time, eschewing the glass/metal structure in the last couple of iPhone generations. The 4.7" iPhone 6 is expected to feature a pixel-tripled 906 x 1704 resolution with pixel density on about the level of the current iPhone 5s, despite the enlarged screen size. We are also expecting a faster Apple A8 processor, improved camera, which is unlikely to grow much in resolution, if at all, and the venerable Touch ID finger scanner below the screen. 

Next week we should know more about the expected iOS 8 update, too, as Apple's WWDC conference is starting Monday, and it could give us a clue about the software goodies and extra features that will arrive with the iPhone 6 in the fall.
