After numerous reports claimed the iPhone 6 will have a completely new design featuring curved edges and an extremely thin profile, Nowhereelse has found images showing a mockup iPhone 6 model that seems to match the recent leaks – the dummy iPhone has reportedly been photographed in China, although it’s not clear who made it and for what purpose. The publication says the images have been posted on a Chinese forum well known for Apple leaks.
This purported iPhone 6 dummy model features the same design lines mentioned in many reports including round corners and edges, a protruding rear camera, a thin profile, and redesigned volume buttons that look more like the iPhone’s 5c buttons than the traditional volume rockers found the iPhone 5s and older iPhone models.
The power button doesn’t appear to be placed on top of the handset, in traditional iPhone fashion, but an image showing the phone’s right hand side edge – where the button is believed to have been relocated – isn’t available.
However, the size of this iPhone mockup was not mentioned. The phone is expected to pack a 4.7-inch display, and be just 6.1mm thick. Photos showing a purported iPhone 6 manufacturing mold indicated the phone could be 138mm long and 64mm wide. The current iPhone 5s measures 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6mm.
An iPhone 6 case has already been obtained by an insider, with a YouTube channel using it to compare the iPhone 6’s size to the iPhone 5s and current iPod touch model, but also to many Android flagship devices. Leaked schematics showing alleged iPhone 6 components also featured the same design elements featured in this iPhone 6 dummy unit.
The leaked images showing this iPhone 6 mockup follow below.
