With iPhone 6 expected to be unveiled next month, the number of reports on leaked parts for Apple’s next-generation iPhone has become exhaustive. Here’s another one, showing alleged embedded Apple logo, external camera ring and more for the iPhone 6. French website Nowhereelse.fr has posted of photos of what claims is the embedded logo, camera ring and other components that Apple is going to use for its next-generation iPhone.
Apple has not used an embedded Apple logo for its devices since the original iPhone, instead all the recent generations has the Apple logo as an overlay on the rear shell. If this leaked part turns out to be true, it could be made of a highly scratch resistant material like liquidmetal. Apple’s use of liquid metal in its future products has been widely rumored since the extension of its license to use liquidmetal for one more year in May.
The external camera ring component in this leak is in line with some of the previously leaked photos of the rear shell, hinting at a protruding lens in atleast one of the upcoming iPhone 6 models. The 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will model likely get a protruding camera lens, where as flush design will be featured in 4.7-inch variant. It’s also expected that the camera will have similar appearance as that of an iPod Touch 5G’s camera.
Other components leaked in these photos include Touch ID fingerprint scanner, lightning connector, and headphone jacks. All these leaked parts are inline with the previous leaks and the hardware found in the current generation iPhone.
Apple is expected to announce iPhone 6 on September 9th during a media event, and hit the shelves later in the month. iPhone 6 is rumored to be launched in two different screen sizes: 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch.
