New photos show partially assembled iPhone 6

Some new photos surfaced this afternoon, showing what is believed to be a partially assembled iPhone 6. We’ve seen shots of standalone parts, like the front panel and rear shell, but this is the first time we’ve seen what they look like put together.

Assuming the parts are legitimate, these photos give us the best look we’ve seen thus far of Apple’s latest flagship smartphone. The iPhone 6 is much thinner than its predecessor, with rounded corners, and various aspects of it have been redesigned…

Today’s images come from luxury modified iPhone vendor Feld & Volk (via MacRumors), who has been responsible for several leaks in the past. The firm claims it has an in with some Apple suppliers, enabling it to get a head start on modifications.

In terms of design, there isn’t much to talk about here that we haven’t seen already. Gone are the two rows of tiny speaker/mic holes alongside the Lightning port, in favor of a single row of larger holes, and the two volume buttons have been elongated.

Other design differences we continue to see in the leaked parts include a relocated Power button, which has been moved from the top of the device to the side to make it easier to access on the larger handset, as well as a rounded (not pill-shaped) rear flash.

Obviously these parts are in pretty rough shape, and the finished product will be far more polished, but should the current consensus hold true, the iPhone 6 should greatly resemble what you see above. Yeah, Apple’s September 9th event can’t come soon enough.

      I think the new curved bezel makes the device less prone to bending now.

  • vadovado

    would be awesome at the sides could turn on LED’s notification

  • pauleebe

    Seems like a white/silver back chassis on the space gray/black front?

    Those parts sure are banged up..

    • Brian Voll

      I actually really like it how it is! Reminds me of the original iPhone.

      • pauleebe

        Yea but we’ve seen a dark/space gray back place leaked, so I’d assume we’ll see that paired with the dark/space gray screen

        I hope they will give us a choice between black/silver, black/gray, white/silver, or white/gold. Those are all of the leaks that we have seen. We have also seen two different silver backs with either white or black antenna bands, so that would correspond with the screen bezel color. I would assume that since all of those backs have leaked, we will have a choice between all of them.

  • Matt Taylor

    The mic and speaker holes are ugly

  • Jonathan

    I’d like to see the back, with the antenna lines..

    • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

      It’s the same case they posted that was all ‘banged up’ so it still has the same thick lines

  • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

    Darn they didn’t have the common curtesy of putting the white glass on instead lol..
    Either way it looks good. I will miss the ability to stand it up on its side by itself though.

  • kline1

    Is it me or does that lightning port look recessed?

    • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

      It probably seems that way because it is curved.

  • Jake Rogers

    I’m starting to hate rounded edges because they increase the bezel, measured from the screen to the farthest edge of the iPhone.

    • udovoodoo

      I agree. Moto X also uses this optical illusion. I don’t think the distance between the edge of the LCD to the very edge of the phone is smaller than the 5s/5 unfortunately. For the iPhone 6′s 4.7″ screen size, the chassis is unreasonably tall due to the top and bottom bezels. It’s actually the tallest smartphone with a 4.7″ screen, right behind the HTC one. Form factor wise Apple lost me this round, however if the features/performance are godly I may sell my 5s to buy it.

  • Max Rojas

    Can someone help me?
    I’m deciding to purchase a Mac book pro this fall for school. But I know apple always releases stuff during the fall. Do you guys think they will have new laptop models?

    • JoshuaHulgan

      If you need it then you need it.
      But suggest you read up on Broadwell.
      Then decide.

    • Tom

      Apple always releases new products every year

  • Rupinder S

    Oh my god, I’m hyped now!

  • BozzyB

    Looks like a Samsung S5. Totally rounded. I already can hear everybody saying how it feels so much better without edges when holding it…

    • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

      You may need glasses.

  • sdhn97

    I wonder if Apple will allow like a “customisation” in colour…. Like, instead of usual ones, you can have like Gold back with Black front… Or Space Grey back with a white front screen? That would be sweet.

  • Donovan

    These leaks actually help Apple imo, I hated the (assumed) iPhone 6/air look. But I’m fine with it now, I got used to it.

  • Someshwar

    Argh! Seems like a resized iPad!

    Kinda disappointed! But ya, I can live with that!

  • Matt

    The back is the only thing I care about… Clearly they didn’t feel like taking pictures of the back

  • suttonmontreal

    A bigger IPod with fingerprint scanner.. but.. if is Apple is good.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/PrsnSinghHD Prasoon Singh

    Seems fake.

  • n0ahcruz3

    Meh with the design, but im still going to buy the 5.5″ one if its real.

  • Tom

    We need sd card slot

  • Jack White

    It looks like a white rear shell with the black front panel, because the antenna breaks are white as is the inside of the headphone jack and the lightning port. I don’t think this is the final black model, the metal will be darker than the silver you see here.

  • ARX8

    These look like 3D renderings to me

  • momerathe

    thumbs up. I never liked the square edged of the 4/5.

  • idipps

    the original iphone slimmer and bigger i love it

  • Yehia Khaled
