Additional Photos of Purported Silver iPhone 6 Rear Shell Surface




More photos said to be of the iPhone 6's rear shell have been shared by frequent iOS device part leaker Sonny Dickson. The part shown in the photos also appears identical to the rear shell shared by luxury modified iPhone vendor Feld & Volk, hinting that this may be a legitimate component.

Similar to previous leaks, this newest rear shell shows a number of physical features including a near-all metal design with upper and lower bezels, a cutout for the new round "True Tone" dual-LED flash, and a cutout for the rear camera that may hint at a protruding lens for the device.

Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone 6 at an event on September 9, with a launch likely coming one week after the announcement. It is possible that the company will release the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 first, with the 5.5-inch version seeing a launch later this year or early next year as Apple solves production issues with the larger device. In addition to a bigger screen, both versions of the iPhone 6 will likely incorporate a faster A8 processor, an improved camera with stabilization, and iOS 8.

White bands look like placeholders.

I hope there will not be any protruding part near the camera... it would be awful!

why not just make the phone the same thickness as the lens? makes much more sense to me at this time anyway. when camera tech evolves then make it that much smaller...

If the camera is much, much better then I will happily take the protrusion.

The infamous white bands partially broken off? I really wonder what this is all about.

Guess those thick bands are here to stay! I wonder what the final product will look like then?

How are the white bands chipping off already? Did the guy stab at them with an ice pick before taking the photo?
I hope the production model isn't that fragile!

Anyone considered the antenna breaks being filled with liquidmetal? That'd look pretty cool

Dear Apple, please fill those seams with same-color-as-shell liquid metal.

Thanks you

It's obvious they are trying different coats for the white bands. there's both a silver and a darker coating...

I think we can safely assume this is going to be the real iPhone we get in September. The only surprise is left for us now are specifically what features we get with the hardware and software that you can't see just from looking at the case

WoW! last year we had a full blown iPhone 5s leak with the gold plated "Elvis Edition"! This year All we get is a "Rear Shell"? Tim Cook didn't want a DOUBLE DOWN, he Meant TRIPLE DOWN!! Nothing to go on.. I will just wait for Apple.

indeed. the two dents on the corner of the apple logo cutout are identical. it even has the same two scratches left to the camera hole. but the shell from last week has no camera ring.

I think I will buy it anyway in space gray/dark version time to move from iP4... BUT! for god sake instead of that ugly camera protrusion, they just should make phone a bit thicker to avoid that and put a slightly bigger battery on it, most users will appreciate that way more than 1 mm thinner phone.

From marketing point of view that protrusion is brilliant and evil move because will force users to buy case or bumper.

And.... if that ugly thick antenna separators will be in final model for me it will means that Johnny can't even do his s*** without S.J. I'm just hoping that they will be barely visible in dark models.

C'mon...Obviously this is some type of prototype made up of unfinished raw material.
