Alleged iPhone 6 shell snapped from all sides, shows larger, thinner metal handset
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.
