    New high-quality photos said to be of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6's rear shell have been shared by Nowhereelse.fr (Google Translate), showing us what may be a finished back from the device. Notably, this newest component appears to have its rear bands colored in to fit with the rest of the device, perhaps suggesting that the different color options of the iPhone 6 will feature a similar treatment.

    Besides its colored bands, the rear shell shown in the photos appears to be consistent with previous looks at the component, displaying a rounded chassis, embedded rear logo, and more. The shell also appears to adopt redesigned speaker holes and a rounded True Tone LED flash, which join the typical Lightning port, headphone jack, and rear camera.

    Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 6 at an event on September 9, where it will also likely unveil its wearable device for the first time. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will likely launch a week or so after the event, while the bigger 5.5-inch version of the device may be held back due to production issues. In addition to a larger screen, the iPhone 6 is expected to feature a faster A8 processor, a revamped camera system, iOS 8, and near field communication (NFC) technology for mobile payments.

    11 days seems miles off! It's been sometime since I've been this excited about an Apple event.

    Definitely doing that more rounded design.

    inb4 not blurry pictures crap.

    Those ugly antennas are growing on me, maybe it's the slow acceptance of them being actually real.

    I think it looks alright. I'm sure whatever professional pics Apple throws at us, along with Ive's intro video in his soothing accent, will get me to buy it.

    And I'm okay with that.

    Curious what the black will look like - hopefully the bands won't be contrasting against the slate. It's growing on me this design.. I thought the bands were cutouts for glass but not anymore!

    So the antenna bands are real? Damn it. It is disgustingly ugly. It's extremely disappointing to see that Apple couldn't figure out a better design for the antenna. It is not pleasing aesthetically at all.

    Maybe they have done it because they've created these special bands that no matter where you are in the world (middle of the Atlantic) you'll get full reception!

    iPhone 6.
    No longer can you hold it wrong.

    They had 2 years to figure out where to put the antenna bands and this is the best they could do? Seriously disappointed.

    The other features sound great and I'm sure it'll be a great phone, but the back is ugly.

    how is the solution on the iPhone 5 any better tho. it stands out even more with its ugly white glass bits on the silver center piece (and i own one lol). this one looks more subtle and goes hand in hand with the sides

    There better be some special purpose to these bands because they're uncharacteristically ugly.

    It's either fake, unfinished, or there is going to be something additional in the 6 to cause these bands.

    Brilliant!

    If this silver back comes with a black front then I'm sold - otherwise I guess I'll have to take the black "space grey" version. I don't like the white front on any iPhone. :cool:

    Hipsters aren't going to like this phone now that everyone has already heard about these bands.

    Taste is subjective. I dig 'em. Your language speaks to your life being extremely shallow.
