A week ago, a Japanese blog known as Mac Otakara published a video as seen above revolving around the iPhone 6. What makes this video stand out is that it highlights the hardware of the phone. The video compares the rear shell of the iPhone 6 which is 4.7 inches with the iPhone 5s. It also features the internal structure as well as cut outs of the camera which is similar to what we have been seeing via images.
The video confirms that the shell of the iPhone 6 will be thinner that the iPhone 5s and shows the anticipated features of the phone such as the mute switch and elongated volume buttons. The power button has also been relocated to the side of the device instead of the normal top edge to accommodate the larger size of the phone. Both the 4.7 inch and the 5.5 inch version of the device are expected to have faster A8 processors. The smaller version of the two will feature advanced camera lens while the larger version is expected to specially feature optical image stabilization to improve photo quality.
The 5.5 inch and 4.7 inch versions of the iPhone 6 are set to be launched on September 19 and we’re expecting a media event to introduce the devices to take place a week or so prior to that date.
While we’re on the same topic of the iPhone 6 leaks, we’re compelled to let you guys know that although many leaks have been flying around regarding the device, you can’t believe everything you see. According to a website known as Nikkei, the mockups that have been shown for the iPhone 6 are not all that accurate.
The images of the mock up to highlight the overall design of the product but the materials used to make the mockups are of low quality and were used to ensure fast production of mockups. Nikkei argues that the mockups really have huge misses with some of the major elements of the iPhone 6 including the curved glass display. The website further states that the antenna breaks on the back of the mockups will not be featured in the final version of the iPhone 6. We are hence, expecting a more similar hardware design to the iPhone 5s or iPhone 5 compared to these mockups.
Below is the image of the back panels of the mockups. As you can see, the Apple logo is missing and you have to admit, it does look a bit cheap.
