A new render of a device, alleged to be that of a 4.7-inch iPhone 6, shows that the device will sport a protruding camera ring on its rear shell. Previous rumors have indicated the protruding ring would be exclusive to the 5.5-inch model.
Now, an alleged schematic shared by Apple.club.tw (Google Translate, via G for Games) once again shows a protruding camera ring on the back of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, which is measured at 0.67-0.77 millimeters. The website also claims that the phone will be 7 millimeters thick, which lines up with the most recent leak showing off the device’s rear shell and front panel for the first time.
The image, which looks to have been photographed from a monitor, shows a codename of N56 for the device.
We should keep in mind that nothing has been announced, and it’s possible this is fake, or (stretching a bit here), could even be a render of a new model of the iPod touch.
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 6 on September 9. The 4.7-inch model of the device will likely launch a little over a week later, while the much-rumored larger 5.5-inch model may possibly launch later this year, or early 2015.
The new iPhone(s) are expected to include a fast A8 processor, a thinner more rounded body, and improved cameras on both models.
