iPhone 6’s flex cables & clone!
Apple.club.tw may have just shared the first images of internal parts of the 5.5 inch variant of the Apple iPhone 6. What you see in the image above are the power/volume flex cables as well as SIM trays of the device.
The design of the photos captured are similar to the earlier leaks we’ve seen before. Some of the distinct differences we see are the lesser space between the volume buttons and the mute buttons and the two flex cables for the power button have different shapes compared to previous images. The cables do have an Apple style internal part code.
Along with the flex cable image, came a photo of the SIM trays of the device in silver and cobalt blue. The color is an unexpected leak as we’ve been looking for an existing silver, gold or space gray colored part.
On top of this, Nowherelse.fr has also shared images of the alleged bare logic board of the both variants of the iPhone 6.
The photo shows side by side comparison of the parts from the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 5s. The component layout of the logic boards from the two iPhone 6 models appear very similar, but the board design and screw hole layout are somewhat different, particularly on the upper portion of the board including the arm extending across the top of the device above the battery. As with the first logic board, this part allegedly includes support for near field communications (NFC). While the legitimacy of the parts can not be confirmed, they do appear very similar to existing parts and exhibit complexity that would be expensive to fake. They also contain part numbers (820-3675-04 and 820-2486-09) in the pattern followed by Apple.
So, we’ve been seeing a lot of dummy units and conflicting details about the Apple iPhone 6. Here, down below we have yet another video of the iPhone 6 but we’re calling this a clone because of the exquisite detail of the device. It is a fully functional 4.7 inch ‘iPhone 6’. The video shows the working of the phone. Shipped in a iPhone 5 box, it does store a SIM card and boots like a normal phone. However, it doesn’t look like the phone runs on iOS! It’s a skinned version of Android copying the iOS in every way possible.
Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think!
