An ultrathin iPhone 6 with a protruding camera leaks in alleged CAD drawing

0. phoneArena posted on 20 Aug 2014, 04:08

A screen grab of what is claimed to be a CAD drawing of the iPhone 6, indicates that the new Apple handset might have a slightly protruding camera lens and ring, in a stark difference to Apple's flat-out approach so far. The schematic shows a prototype, labeled N56, equipped with two camera modules - one largely flush with the surface, which is 6.7mm high, and one that sticks out about a millimeter more, at 7.7 millimeters...

When Apple does it, they're like "Wow, gorgeous! Beautiful blah blah blah..."; and when the others especially Chinese manufacturers does it, they're like "Copycat this and that...". They should stop licking Apple's butt and accept the fact that copying is a normal thing now, everyone copies.

I'll agree that's this bias exists sadly :( When the iPhone 5s came out it was praised as gorgeous across the internet even tho its the exact same design as the iPhone 5. My god people its the exact same thing

And guess what happened when the S4 looked slightly like the S3? "You might mistaken the S4 for an S3 unless you look closer", "its the exact same design why should I get it", "why did Samsung repeat its same boring design". Really wish tech sites do not promote this media bias :(

I can easily tell apart an s3 from an s4.

The design is not the same.

I'm very well aware of this but look at phonearena's review, A lot of people and reviewers were saying they look identical

You guys are crying about absolutely nothing, especially when the iPhone 6 prototypes have been slammed everywhere for its design these last couple months...Pay more attention. If anything, every single little detail of the iPhone is scrutinized and argued more than any other device out there.

Despite obvious copying of the iPhone and mid-range specs, the reception of the Galaxy Alpha design has been largely positive. Even the Note 3 with its faux-leather got positive reviews. Again, stop crying and pay more attention.

As for the S3, many people thought it was ugly to begin with. It's a dumb move to make the S4 design similar. When you combine that with the fact that Samsung releases 100 different devices a year with similar designs, I'm not surprised that people got bored.

But that is the benefit of having a zombie horde as your primary user base. They literally will call anyone and everyone who doesn't praise Apple biased and so websites have to cater to them in order to keep them coming back. They aren't exactly the most open minded group and so any criticism is deemed completely intolerable. That is why the word fanboy is so synonymous with Apple fans. Most of them are ill-informed and ignorant, but those ones are usually the loudest and drown out the saner portion of the fanbase.

i m not an apple fanboy or something...but it doesn't look like the htc one at all........it is obvious that i hate apple's policy of producing cheap and selling at sky high prices for it's features.....but its also true that it has made some of the sexiest devices(iphone 5 ,ipad air) without copying anyone

Apple will drag HTC to court, saying "HTC have copied our patented design before we released iphone 6."

Cos the media won't say anything to hurt apple even if it clearly shows they copied m8. It's like apple can do no wrong.

So true, The propaganda towards Apple is becoming a joke, abuse Samsung for Alpha battery, screen etc forgetting the Alpha's screen.battery etc is better than the overrated current iToy 5s and battery will be better than the 4.7" iToy 6 but proclaim the iPhone as the KING, due to an Apple logo, lol they can do know wrong.

I detest the media for this. it's as if it's back our own USA and defeat Korea etc forgetting parts in iToy are made from those countries/companies others bash. Ignorance is bliss i suppose.

I have an iToy 5 and i'm moving to Note 4 as i've seen the light. only worry is Samsung customer service, can't fault Apple's as it excellent. that's one thing i can vouch for. iToy is ok can but not worth the $$ IMO

Are we getting so thin now that components are sticking out of the phone.

How thin is too thin, I think we have our answer.

If you look from the sides, maybe.
If you look from the front or back, it's not similar. If you look at this photo, where is shows mostly the back, and you say it looks exactly like the Lumia 925, you haven't seen the Lumia 925.
