Leaked shell suggests iPhone 6s will be tough enough to prevent a 'Bendgate 2'
Assessing a leaked backplate of what most refer to as the iPhone 6s, the video suggests that key design considerations have been made. Comparing the shell versus that of an iPhone 6, certain weak areas within the current model's frame seem have been addressed. The spot around the volume buttons -- the point at which the iPhone 6 Plus caved during the aforementioned Bendgate video -- is apparently twice as thick on the iPhone 6s, and it's fairly safe to assume the 6s Plus will do likewise.
Intriguingly, the iPhone 6s shell weighs in slightly less than that of its predecessor. It has been reported that the device will be marginally thicker than the current model, but if the Unbox Therapy clip is anything to go by, it could also be less weighty.
Take a look at the clip below, and let us know of your take via the comments.
