    New photos of various components said to be from the iPhone 6 have been shared by Nowhereelse.fr (Google Translate), giving us a glimpse at both internal and external parts to be used in the device.

    The first set of images show SIM card trays and home buttons in a range of three different colors, which may indicate that the iPhone 6 will keep the same space grey, gold, and silver options from the iPhone 5s. This is in line with a previous leaks, including one from last month which also showed SIM trays in three different colors. The SIM trays shown in the photos also appear to be slightly curved, and was likely designed with the iPhone 6's thinner, rounded chassis in mind.

    Another set of photos shows the embedded Apple logo, which has also surfaced in other leaks. However, Nowhereelse indicates that the logo scratches under regular pressure with a knife, and contrasts prior speculation that the logo was made of scratch-resistant metal. Apple has not used an embedded Apple logo on its mobile devices since the original iPhone back in 2007.

    Finally, the last set of photos show the internal speaker and vibrator motor of the iPhone 6. Both components appear to be different than their predecessors found in the iPhone 5s, as the internal speaker appears to be larger while the vibrator motor now sports a rectangular design.

    According to Re/code, Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 6 on Tuesday, September 9. It is likely that the 4.7-inch version of the device will go on sale about a week later, while the 5.5-inch version may be released at a later time due to production delays. A report yesterday from Re/code also stated that Apple will unveil a wearable device at the event.

    Sad it scratches, because it looks very much like 'Liquid Metal' of the SIM-removal tool.

    An embedded logo? What a dealbreaker. Looks like I will stick with my iPhone 3G. They should fire Jony Ive. This would not have happened under Steve Jobs. This shows the long slide downwards that Apple has been on for several years now. The logos on Android phones are much better. There is no more innovation from Apple anymore. The logo is too black. I can't believe they only use two holes to attach the logo to the case. Jony Ive messed it up again. The logo is not black enough. They should have improved battery capacity instead of messing with the logo. This would not have happened under Steve Jobs. Once again they are concentrating on design instead of features. I guess this means there will be no 256GB iPhone 6. I thought Tim Cook was supposed to be an expert for logos. This is Jony Ive's fault again. As expected, no innovation. They should concentrate more on getting the design right instead of fiddling with all those new features. This looks like a 1:1 rip-off from Android. Looks like the logo will not have NFC. This would not have happened under Steve Jobs.

    expectations

    Me sad :-(

    I thought that the logo would be another small part of the iPhone made with liquidmetal, before a liquidmetal-only product like the hypothetical iWatch.

    Based on that: bummer.

    About the iPhone itself, I'm more and more convinced that selling 50 million iPhones in 3 out of 4 quarters of Apple's 2015 fiscal year is a reality.

    Hmm. I'd still like to see a black/spacegray backplate. The new logo material looks great though! :D

    as someone with a 5 with just horrendous battery life cant wait! Then ill send the 5 in for batt replacement and keep as a backup.

    Very excited to see if the speakers are louder, it is a problem area. Or maybe ive been getting deaf as ive gotten older!! Dont doubt it!:D:D:D:D

    ----------

    Lol. I laughed at this.

    You're complaining about a logo that "is not black enough". Plus, this might be fake.

    Please, wait until Apple at least unveil the iPhone 6 or you have it in your hands before you decide.

    As always, the next iPhone will look stunning.

    I think that was the OP's intention.

    Or at least I hope it was... :eek: :D
