Alleged photos of Apple iPhone 6 show protruding camera

Alleged photos of Apple iPhone 6 show protruding camera
As far back as March, we showed you some photos allegedly captured by a Foxconn insider. One of the images was of a screenshot, showing a computer-aided design of the Apple iPhone 6, revealing a protruding camera on the rear of the handset. Last week, another CAD image of the Apple iPhone 6 was leaked, and once again the protruding camera was seen.

Now, the infamous protruding camera moves from an image on a computer screen to an actual photograph. Naturally, the pictures you see below should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt, as such a design might be easily faked. But, just in case there's some truth to all these rumors of the iPhone 6 coming with a slightly protruding camera, this is what it might look like in reality.

Thanks for the tip!

No shi*. Of course they have to make it protruding if they want to continue the trend of "the slimmest iPhone yet"

I don't see an issue with thicker phones, I prefer them in some ways, it feels sturdy and comfortable.

Agree. But Apple seems to have an obsession of making their phones thinner and thinner. What will it be in 10 years? Probably no phone at all lol.

and samsung will follow that trend. wait and see. thinner galaxy phones will be standart

they already do that but it makes the battery suffer so no sales tells them dont do it. i think in 10 years we should all have implanted chips at birth. i wish that now but guess we will have to wait

Didn't you know that? Sammy is the biggest iFan of all time. And I think Androtakus simply love Apple : they literally swarm on Apple related articles like this.

It's so ironic because you swarm to Samsung and Apple articles. Want me to provide at least ten links? Didn't think so.

Fast at what? Copying? They shamelessly do it so much that even if it's a great phone I won't spend my money on it.

apple is copying the huawai company they have the thinnest in the world, with hi specs not like apple mid specs, but you have to admit if not for the round button this ip6 would look just like a htc m8 rip off. why do you think apple made a deal not allow htc to use a patten or 2 from them with no fees if htc would not be allowed to sue apple . think about this for a sec its not hard, they had no idea what design to go with so htc won last year design so they copy the m8 prototype and flatten it a little bit and know you have a iphone 6 its not hard to see cook and design team have no idea what design would work for a ifan on a bigger screen. i found a video from 2010 talking about how apples closed system will end the company, think about net neutrality thats what apple is now they used to be stand up to the man dont let them control you and now its them stopping tech growth. jobs would work hand in hand with a company and then turn around and sue them saying its mine mine you cant have it. i be leave he dies a bitter old man not seeing where the tech world could have gone if he did not cause so many problems with law suits.

Seeing the same crap all summer. there's nothing new

There seem to be a number of other manufacturers that already make phones that are as slim, or slimmer, without a protruding camera. Is the camera sticking out an innovation? ;)

Just admit it! ......not only did they copy Samsung's screen size, they're now using Polycarbonate like Samsung and they copied the location of the power button too. With the camera protruding from the back, Apple has now copied that too. Besides so many other features! Apple is now confirmed to be the Biggest Copyist since they first stole the GUI and Mouse!!! ;-P btw.... just to give you iDiots a dose of your own ignorance on this whole, "wah... wah... Samsung copied Apple... wah sniff... sniff.... cry" routine!

Wow..... buthurt maybe 'eh and just what the fu*k are you talking about? lol.... The thinnest and lightest smartphone now of big brands is Samsung Alpha 5.7mm. But it isn't even close to the thinnest...... only the lightest weight. Gionee Elife 5.5mm and it's already been beat by another Chinese phone at 5.4. But new Elife will be less! go ahead be a D**khead, about this comment too! ;-P

The funny thing is that anti Apple People are happily defending typical samsung's strategy of ripping off entire products to the last detail (and if that ripped off company dares to sue them they will attack them too with dozens of patents from the biggest patent portfolio in the industry, to stretch and screw the verdict in their favor. That's not a ignorance routine, it happens every time something great is about to hit the market, Moto 360 is next, will you defend that too ?), while cannot stop accusing Apple of using things like plastic, dual core processors, LTE or even going to bigger screen and how that makes them "shameless copiers". That's what I call ignorance.

You only need to shop Galaxy S3 (only came w/16GB & 4G LTE) on ebay to see that they are still selling new and used selling for more than iPhone 4s that you paid more for new w/o 4G LTE and only 8GB and ONLY 512mb Ram! WTF?!? lol.... no wonder 4 and 4s won't be supported by iOS 8! haha..... And dam right companies should think twice about suing Samsung. Apple has the most famous iSueU title in the World and all they really have are software patents. Samsung spends more money on R&D and CAPEX building actual factories they own and developing chip fabrication technologies, memory, processors, CMOS chips for cameras, screens technologies, plastics used in luxury cars like Bugatti Veyron and batteries in Tesla and BMW's. They're not just some fly by night totally out sourced Design House Only like Apple. As far as Moto 360? Samsung patented the ROUND AMOLED SCREEN Technology.... yes! But Moto and Lenovo have been Samsung customers for a long time. Meaning NO!!!!! ....Samsung isn't into suing their customers like Apple is! Samsung only sues others when they sue them. Look up their 80yr history. They been all about innovation at the ground level on everything they do. They don't steal ideas as if they could be stolen. They had the first round home button in SGH-Z610. That also had 3.5" Touchscreen with Gestures, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth, front n back cameras, stainless steel band around it and across the back, out a yr before iPhone. So who exactly ripped off who? REALITY? Apple ripped off more stuff from Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, HTC, etc than all other smartphone makers combined ripped off Apple! ;-P ...and that's what I call ignorance in being a deluded Applewellian iProle Zealot in making stupid statements like yours!!!
