It’s likely a reasonably safe bet at this point to presume that the countless next-generation iPhone mockups we’ve seen in photos and on video are a close likeness to the actual 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch “iPhone Air” Apple plans to debut later this year. The models are said to be made using actual schematics that were leaked from Foxconn several months ago, so they may be accurate down to the millimeter — though one recent report claims that there is a huge flaw in the designs that comes as the result of a misunderstanding of the schematics.

With all that said, these mockups were not made using Apple suppliers’ materials or machinery, so there is likely one important thing they do not accurately convey: The beauty of Apple’s upcoming hardware.

FROM EARLIER: Leaked photos may show Apple’s fully assembled iPhone 6

The size, shape and basic hardware features are all probably covered by the numerous dummies we have seen. But a new render of Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 created by graphic designer Mark Pelin may mark the first time that we have seen the leaked iPhone 6 design imagined in a way that might accurately represent an actual Apple device.

Pelin’s work shows a completely redesigned handset that looks like it sticks to the leaked schematics quite closely. It also shows a device that is on par with the refinement and quality that Apple hardware always achieves.

Of note, however, the new render does not account for recent reports that suggest the plastic strips on the back of the phone previously thought to cover various antenna elements are actually border markings for glass inserts similar to the ones found on the back of the iPhone 5s.

Several additional images from Pelin follow below, and more can be seen on 9to5Mac.
