Leaked Pictures Show Protruding Camera on Fully Assembled iPhone 6

Share this:

Last week, we saw pictures of the rumored protruding camera on the iPhone 6. The technical specifications also came out and claimed that the camera would extend up to .77mm beyond the device.  We have yet to really see a fully-assembled iPhone 6 that shows the claim until now.  Gizmobic got their hands on some pictures from ithome that show us an iPhone 6 with the protruding camera.  The pictures also reveal to us other rumored changes.

The front of the phone shows us the larger iSight camera (with hopefully a higher resolution), the two elongated volume controls, thinner bezels, a taller and wider display and curved glass. The glass was originally expected to be made of sapphire, but it appears that due to high costs and limited supply, the sapphire may only be available on higher-end models and not in full production until 2015.  For the iPhone 6 models being announced in two weeks, we expect them to use Corning Gorilla glass. New reports also claim the 4.7″ phone’s display would have a resolution of 1472 x 828 pixels and the 5.5″ phone’s display would be 1704 x 960.  This calculates out to the 4.7″ phone having 350 pixels per inch (ppi) and the 5.5″ iPhone would have 360 ppi.

iPhone 6 Rumor Roundup: Production Schedule, Release Date, Leaked Parts Gallery

Share this:

Every two years, Apple updates their smartphone with a new design, fresh coat of paint and improved internal components.  Since last year was a “S” year, this year Apple is expected to give us a new iPhone.  This smartphone, called the “iPhone 6”, will have a slimmer profile with curved edges, potentially curved glass, a larger and higher-resolution display and better internal components.  The question no longer is what will the new iPhone will be, but when we will see it.  Thanks to the mockups in late Spring, we know what the next-generation iPhone will look like.  This week’s rumors hint towards a potential release date for the 4.7″ and 5.5″ variants of the iPhone 6.

In late May, I reported that Deutsch Telekom purposefully told their customers the release date for the iPhone 6 would be September 19 in hopes of retaining them.  Tencent, a Chinese web portal, announced that the same date as the release date for the iPhone 6.  If this date is correct, then we expect that mass production is underway for both variants (assuming that Apple will announce both sizes at the same event).

More Leaked iPhone 6 Parts: Touch ID, WiFi Module, SIM Trays and Rear Shell

Share this:

As the official iPhone 6 announcement draws closer, more parts will get leaked online due to suppliers giving genuine parts to Chinese resellers.  A new set of photos come to us from Nowhereelse.fr, which were originally found on the Japanese blog ASCII.

Touch ID for the iPhone 6

The first image confirms the rumor (and expectation) that the iPhone 6 will include Apple’s fingerprint sensor that was featured on the iPhone 5s. It looks awfully similar to a part we saw late last week that claimed to be the Touch ID sensor for the iPhone 6.  The location of the screws is different then the iPhone 5s, which suggests a change in the location of many internal components and redesigned exterior.

iPhone 6 Case Shows Thinner, Larger Phone

Ming Chi Kuo, an analyst of KGI Securities, reported the next generation iPhone will be thinner and larger based on his sources inside Apple’s supply chain.  A case maker in China called Elam apparently has specs for the new iPhone and Nowhereelse.fr posted a picture on their site of the case’s 3D model.  Although some cases in the past didn’t line up with physical products, this case seems to be what all the rumors have been pointing to.

The case appears to show a much larger and thinner iPhone with rounded corners.  The left side of the case shows the silent switch and a volume rocker (as compared to the current two button design for volume control).  The bottom has the headphone jack on the left, Lightning port in the middle and microphone/speakers on either side.  Kuo believes the iPhone 6 will also have the lock button moved to the side instead of on top for easier one handed use.  If he and the case above are legitimate, it will likely be on the right side of the phone.

iPhone 6 Concept Based on Leaked Pictures

MacFan, a Japanese magazine, posted the sketches below of the iPhone 6.  These pictures show two different-sized smartphones, which aligns with the rumor that Apple is working on releasing two models.  The first one is expected to have a 4.7-inch display and the second one, a 5.5-inch display.  According to the images, the devices will be slimmer, flat and bezel-free with a single LED flash and protruding camera (like found on the iPod touch).

These pictures inspired Nowhereelse.fr, a French Apple blog, and Martin Hajek, a graphic designer, to work together and design a very realistic concept for the iPhone 6.  If the leaked image above is actually for the iPhone 6, the concept below is likely to be what the iPhone 6 will look like.  These designs show an iPhone with rounded corners, a sapphire glass back and a rocker-style volume button.

Case Mold for iPhone 6 Leaked

A Japanese case maker’s blog recently uploaded the image below, saying that it is the case mold for the iPhone 6.  There is no way to say whether it is really a mold for cases or not, but it does give us perspective on what the next generation iPhone will look like (and it fits in with the rumors).  The display is larger compared to the iPhone 5s, the bezels are thinner and should still be comfortable enough to hold in one hand.  The iPhone 6 is rumored to have a higher resolution display, a much faster A8 processor, an 8MP camera and a thickness of .22 inches.
