Images show alleged completed iPhone 6 with protruding rear camera lens
An assembled version of the iPhone 6 has allegedly leaked from the factory, new photographs reveal. The complete device, shown with the same back cover and marginally-protruding rear camera lens as an earlier leak, is said by sources of celebrity gossip site TMZ to be "noticeably lighter" and has a new yet unknown sensor mounted to the front of the device.
Claimed to have been acquired by a friend of the image source, an apparent ex-employee belonging to a Foxconn department which worked on the outer casing, the iPhone 6 being shown is said not to run on an "authentic" version of iOS, though it apparently this is a standard procedure during development for security purposes.
In photos showing it in comparison to the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 6 seems to be roughly the same thickness as its predecessor, though it is difficult to tell as the two phones are held up to the camera instead of being placed on a flat surface. The front and back views are more definitive, showing the new phone to be much wider than the iPhone 5s.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 6 next month, with rumors suggesting a launch on September 9th.
