After releasing a high-quality video of the iPhone 6’s metallic rear shell in early July, Moscow-based luxury retailer Feld & Volk is back with more revealing images that highlight several interesting features of the upcoming Apple smartphone. Apparently, Feld & Volk has received a completed 4.7-inch iPhone 6 rear case and has taken various pictures of its elements and shared them with MacRumors. The new images reveal various interesting details about the iPhone 6’s final design that were not shown in previous leaks.

The redesigned volume buttons are recessed in this particular iPhone 6 rear shell version, and look similar to the volume buttons spotted in a recent iPad Air 2 leak – the change will give them a lower profile, and prevent unwanted volume changes caused by accidental presses.

The external ring of the phone’s rear camera is also shown in a picture and the company suggests the iPhone 6 will have a protruding camera, which is in line with some early iPhone 6 rumors, although most leaks showed a flush camera for the handset.

The company also shared pictures of the front and back of the rear shell, as well as internal components of the iPhone 6.

Most interestingly, Feld & Volk also shows a picture of the Apple logo that’s supposed to be embedded on the back of the iPhone 6, resembling the logo of the original iPhone. The company says the logo is made of “very extraordinary” scratch-resistant metal, speculating that it could be a Liquidmetal alloy – a metal Apple is reportedly interested in using in future products.

The images shared by Feld & Volk follow below.
