Alleged iPhone 6 shell snapped from all sides, shows larger, thinner metal handset
posted by Daniel P. / Jun 09, 2014, 6:31 AM
It's been a while since the we've seen a reclaimed iPhone 6 part straight from the jungle of the Chinese assembly lines, and we were starting to get weary. This latest leak shows us how the upcoming 4.7" iPhone is supposed to look from the rear, and coincides with what we've seen so far in the form of dummy units.
It indicates a larger 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.
As you can see from the frame's side looks below, the iPhone 6 is likely to get even thinner than the current representative of the line, and the rumored sub-7mm thickness might just turn out to be true. The slim handset is expected in September, followed by a 5.5" phablet of sorts, though the exact timing of this one is still controversial.

It is uglier than the M8, which I already found to be ugly. If any tech journalism website gives them props for the looks, I will then stop visiting that site for their obvious bias. I hope it is all a joke/misdirection and Apple secretly has a better design hidden away somewhere. I don't see anyone other than hardcore Apple fanboys liking what that thing looks like.

Looks like they're ditching dual-flash for a single flash.

Can't wait to see the finished product. I hope there's a bigger one too though.

Apple has to do that to incorporate the antenna into the full metal design! Would you rather have a phone without an antenna? All phones with all-metal designs will look similar to the One M8 because the One M8 was the first phone to do that.

Apple logo cut out fill with plastic, so the radio signal can go through, HTC will copy apple and cut out HTC logo on next gen, to get rid the HTC logo bar we complaint about on M8. Get your blanket ready to hide. Wait and see, I'm 99% sure htc will do that on M9 too.

Im on the fence about this design. I personally loved the OG iPhone design and this is a thinner version of that. But Im hoping that top and bottom insert is actually glass. And those possible plastic lines can't be final production worthy. They don't have them on the 5 and 5S the glass butts directly to the metal so thats why I can't see a change in the construction on that front. And since we haven't seen any leaks of the larger 5.5" casting Im guessing thats never going to happen.

With the Apple logo being cut out like that, which is wasn't on the 5/5s. Is it a possibility they will bring the glowing Apple logo from their mac to the iPhone? With it being so thin they could just use the backlight from the display. Anyone?

The original source of this leak mentioned that it would be a indicator light. We will see if it's true. It would be cool if it lite up when your phone rings or got a message, but turns off after a few seconds.
