Several new photos published today by Letem svetem Applem [Google Translate] show the purported power and volume flex cables as well as three SIM card trays that hint at the color options Apple is planning for the iPhone 6. This report follows a leak from earlier this month that first showcased these two internal flex cables from the iPhone 6, although the parts shown in the two reports are not identical.

Similar to the previous photos but slightly different in layout, the volume flex cable contains both the mute button and volume buttons with a possible larger separation between the two components. The power flex cable also shows the same arrangement of connectors with a potentially larger-sized power button. Though we can't confirm how these cables will appear inside the iPhone 6, mockups and drawings have depicted a redesigned button layout on the iPhone 6 that includes oval-shaped volume buttons and a side-positioned power button.

While the flex cables provide little new insight on the iPhone 6 itself, the supposed SIM card trays hint at the coloring of the iPhone 6. Not surprisingly, the trays suggest the iPhone 6 will keep the same color options as the iPhone 5S -- space gray, gold and silver. Physical mockups have been circulating in all three colors for some time, and a claimed genuine rear shell surfaced in silver, but the full set of three current color options had so far not been seen in claimed genuine iPhone 6 parts.

Apple is expected to introduce the iPhone 6 with a larger display as its key selling point. The Cupertino company is reportedly prepping a 4.7-inch model along with a 5.5-inch model as an update to the current 4-inch iPhone 5s. Besides the display, the iPhone 6 may include a faster A8 processor, a thinner design and improved camera optics.

Wait, so a possible leak has told us that the new iPhone will come in the three colours it already comes in? I don't believe it for a second.

Space grey sucks. Why don't they go back to black? It looks so much better.

It won't be long now until we see the colors that Apple is planning for the iPhone.

This is actually a good rumor (leak), because of the card tray colors.

I would really love a silver iPhone to match my Macbook Pro, just like the original iPhone.

Space Grey is amazing! It was one of many reasons to go from "Black & Slate" to the 5S. It's the closest resemblance to the iPhone 4 design language.

*GASP* Buy Apple stock now!

Seriously though, I wondered if they'd keep the gold option.

Agreed. Black front + gray sides = perfect.

We still haven't seen many leaks that confirm a 5.5" iPhone has made it into production... :(

This is more and more just heading for a larger version of the 5S we already have, but it's still going to be revolutionary and spectacular and rainbow-pooping unicorns all 'round.

So does the reality distortion field still exist? or did that depart with Steve? :eek:
