I wonder if the camera protrudes because of some minor optical zoom built-in - perhaps x2 or x3. Now THAT would be an acceptable compromise for me!

I seriously doubt the lens sticks out, but if it does I'd gladly welcome it in exchange for better low-light capabilities and a narrower field-of-view for the camera. (And I'd prefer the lens to stick out a tiny bit rather than making the entire phone thicker, if that's the trade-off). But, again, I doubt it will stick out.

So we have a great large screen spoiled in a cheap looking case using what looks to be Ipad 2 type materials. Come on..space grey model or it's a fake.

Camera problems are already bad enough with existing iPhones with scratches and dust on the lens. I can't imagine what a toxic hellstew this will cause.

I can't believe Apple did this. For whoever called this CAMERAGATE, I agree. This is only the first story.
I'm glad that you have such a strong opinion...for a product that has not been released yet.

I for one do like the idea of a metal rear on the iPhone 6 with plastic bands across it for the antennas. I hate how the glass bands on my 5 have gotten scratched while everything else is flawless. It also brings the iPhone more in line with the unibody theme found in the other lines.
So are Nokia and Samsung obsessed with thinness too?

I hope it's a protruding camera just for entertainment factor of reading these posts.

Could be protruding as a measurement for optical zoom, giving case designers an idea of how it will be while zoomed/extended. Apple certainly wouldn't need to tell them why it's protruding.

I don't know if adding a mechanical protrusion mechanism would be possible in such a thin device, though. Rumors gonna rumor.

Ive, Schiller, and Cook all chime in...

Ive: "And now the Apple logo on the back of the iPhone 6 is more robust and scratch-proof, ensuring that everyone knows you have THE BEST phone on the market."

Schiller: "The iPhone 6's new Apple logo is really astonishing seeing as it is now scratch-proof - Can't Innovate anymore my ass!"

Cook: By making the iPhone 6's Apple logo out of a scratch-resistant material, we were able to increase our profit margins by upwards of thirty-two percent.

Do you use a case? I know some don't, but if you use a case, don't complain as I'm sure you can understand what I'm getting at.

No, they are just focused on specs to get consumer attention. That's the distinction between apple and the other brands: they care about the design of the product along with new and improved features. Comparing those to an iPhone is like comparing a timex to a Rolex

Protruding lens won't be aesthetically pleasing, but at least it means they didn't sacrifice TOO much in the optics department. That said, if this is accurate, I'd still rather have seen the phone be thicker overall with a flush lens and a higher capacity battery.

So a scratch proof logo. Coming soon with the Iphone 6S, fully scratch proof? I mean if they make the logo light up and full of gimmicks I don't see the point. No doubt it will be used as some sort of link to either the Iwatch or Drebeats headphones as I read they are looking at connectivity.

iPod Touch 5th gen. Look it up. It's already had this for 2 years.

optical zoom?
Optical zoom = mechanical parts, and I doubt Apple will do that, as they've gotten rid of a lot of things to reduce mechanical parts.

I can't believe anyone is upset about a protruding lens. It's not that big of a deal.

I'm highly skeptical that Apple would make such a retarded design choice.

Maybe Apple will give a spec bump to the 5c. I still like the design of that phone more than any other Apple has produced.
It's not finished, there isn't an iPhone logo. If the Apple is liquid metal, why not the strips?

i really like this design and think it's one of the best android phone, better than the m8 imo. i was about to switch over when it came out but i couldn't leave iOS. seeing how thin the htc antenna breaks are i cringe whenever i see the purported rear shell of the iPhone 6. maybe it could be liquid metal too like the rumored antenna logo.

You can't scratch an iPhone camera lens by any normal means, so you're 100% incorrect. It's pure sapphire, and only a few things can scratch it, none of which 99.9% of the iPhones lens will ever come in contact with.

Every iPhone (non-s) has had a 'gate' problem.
iPhone 4 - antenna-gate
iPhone 5 - scuff-gate
iPhone 6 - camera-gate??! (Maybe)

Wouldn't surprise me
