Claimed close-to-final iPhone 6 design pictures leak, allegedly taken with Google Glass

Claimed close-to-final iPhone 6 design pictures leak, allegedly taken with Google Glass
After months of crude dummy leaks, we are finally getting something that might resemble the finalized iPhone 6 design more than those plastic prototypes that get tossed around in front of the Kremlin. The design snaps have allegedly been taken on the sly with Google Glass, claims the source, though at the end the author cautions that these renderings might be still a work in progress for Apple, or at least that's what we are grasping from the translation.

The author mentions a full-metal body will be in store with the iPhone 6, with beveled edges, a very slim screen package, and the venerable Touch ID sensor. This design looks more finalized and pretty elegant indeed, plus it is more worthy of the Apple school of thought than the dummies sold for dime a dozen on Alibaba, yet the pics confirm the general shape and elements placement impressions we've obtained from said dummy phones.

We've got the rumored Apple logo cutout on the back, though it's not really clear if it will glow from these pictures. We also get the expected circular camera opening on the back, and the two-tone LED flash, as well as the Touch ID sensor with a classy metallic ring around it. What throws us off a bit, however, is that what seems to be the frontal camera is placed right smack in the middle of the upper bezel, above the earpiece slit, like on the iPhone 5s, for instance. On the latest claimed front panel leak, a large opening is seen next to the earpiece on the left, which we assumed is for the frontal camera. Still, that might be for a proximity sensor instead, plus there is a similar spot at the top in the previous leak that looks just like the one in the current pictures, too. In any case, we shouldn't dive into deep conclusions from such leaks, as there's hardly a way to prove their veracity, but if this one holds water do you like how the iPhone 6 design might be shaping up?

Yea....I highly doubt this is real. Firstly, it looks like that guy is taking a picture of the phone on a computer screen or the like, meaning he is taking a picture of a picture. Second, it also would be fairly difficult to secretly take pictures with Google Glass attached to your face, unless foxconn or whoever was in charge of this model allows you to walk around with Google Glass without a problem.

All Apple products looks elegant, but not sexy or stylish. Fake yet again. No one knows how the IP6 will look like, until September.?

Explain how a phone, that will sell over a 100,000,000, or close to that in total units during its run, will be any type of fail. Wouldn't you love to have all the money this fail makes?

He wrote FALL implying he is saving money for it.

I'm not sure it will sell that much but if someone wants iOS they only have one choice. Samsung could sell a 100M devices easy if they were the only Android player in town.

Wrong What was wrong with saying "yea me also waiting to buy it"...? So it's wrong for people to act like a kid sometimes?

"What was wrong with saying "yea me also waiting to buy it"…?" 1. There was an extra to, as in "…also to waiting to buy…" 2. Misspelled Yeah. 3. Starting a sentence with And (see post 28 below). Taken together, it indicates an element of language challenge. If you want to act like a kid, that is your choice. But understand that will put forth a certain perception of your level of maturity, which can influence how seriously your posts are taken.

Thank you DXD, about time someone sees it other than I. Dude is a complete joke, and really thinks he's taken serious. Not!

And you act like one. Look at you, a huge oversized 6ft 5inch middle aged guy is so desperate to camp with your old middle aged saggy wife, whose 40+. Wth. Lmfao. Look at you the guy who couldn't read and write properly 18 months ago. Look at you, who robs others to fund your tech gadgets. Look at you, who looks for trouble and causes flame war. Look at you, who never contributes, nor provides answers to other users to incline in the conversation, nor is helpful. Cause people come here to learn from others. More like you should wise up, kid.

Don't start a sentence with and.

Me too. I'm gonna upgrade my iPhone 5 to iPhone 6. I will never go back to any android phone or tablet. I can't find the TV Series, movies and music that I want to download. Now, I'm happy using the iTunes and I spend more $500 on iTunes purchasing TV Series, music and never regret at all.

What a really crappy pic... I like this render and think the iPhone 6 will look very similar to this, http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2014/07/iphone6render.jpg
