4.7-inch iPhone 6 rear shell leaked with carved Apple logo
As manufacturing of the iPhone 6 continues, leaked parts at different stages of manufacturing will be common leaks going forward. Yesterday we saw the three color options we should expect after finding the device’s SIM trays in leaked photos. Today we get to see the metallic rear shell of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in other photos, and things like NFC are included in the rumor.
Feld & Volk is a Russian-based company that specializes in selling luxury modifications for the iPhone. As such, the company claims to have good relationships with iPhone suppliers, and claims that these leaked photos come from an iPhone 6 assembly plant. Within the report, Feld & Volk provides photos of the metallic back and the bottom. The company claims that these parts are still in the process of being machined, and that’s the reason why the speakers and camera holes haven’t been carved, although we can see the Apple logo carved at the back. According to Feld & Volk, this Apple logo may be useful to fit the NFC antenna that we’ve heard Apple adoption on the iPhone 6.
As these parts go through further stages of machining, we should expect to see additional leaks of how the iPhone 6 will look as a finalized product. The iPhone 6 is expected to launch in September, so it should only be a matter of time before we see some more details.
