A new video has emerged claiming to show of a physical iPhone 6 mockup based on previously leaked schematics. The video, from 86Digi (via Nowhereelse.fr) gives us a great look at the mockup that purports to show the design of the next generation iPhone.
In the video, the iPhone 6 mockup is shown to have a 4.7-inch display and is 6mm thin, in line with previous reports on the next generation iPhone’s form factor. The mockup also shows the sleep/wake button has been moved to the top right side of the device with pill-shaped volume buttons on the left. What appears to be a single-LED flash is also represented next to the camera on the back of the mockup, which we have seen before, too.
Worth mentioning too are what appear to be antenna breaks cut out of the device’s rear. It has been suggested that Apple will opt for an all-aluminum casing for the iPhone 6 and will need to adjust its antenna layout in order for the device to remain functional.
The video follow yesterday’s images of an iPhone dummy mold and rumored camera updates. Apple is expected to release new iPhones in two different sizes, 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch, with the smaller version rumored to be launching this fall.
Based on all of the leaks so far, I think the iPhone 6 at 4.7-inches looks to be the perfect device. This mockup appears to show a phone that is not much larger in physical size than the current generation iPhone 5s and its thin profile, although not pleasing everyone, should aid one-handed operation despite the device’s larger screen.
Are you excited to see some new iPhone hardware come out of Cupertino? Given what we’ve seen so far, would you buy the 4.7-inch iPhone 6? Let us know in the comments or grab me on Twitter: @TiP_AdamO.
