This iPhone 6 mockup is reportedly based on machine schematics

As we creep closer to the expected September release date of the iPhone 6, more mockups and reported leaks are showing up on what seems like a daily basis.

This latest one, which surfaced on the Chinese technology blog 86Digi, is a physical mockup claimed to be based on real iPhone 6 machine schematics from sources in the supply chain.

It shows the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 as a 6mm thin devices, featuring rounded edges and various other changes — including a relocated power button, rectangular volume controls on the left hand side of the device, and the camera and circular LED flash on the rear.

In line with recent reports, it shows two antenna breaks cut out on the back of the phone cover, and the 86Digi post notes that Apple will incorporate a three-stage aluminum design on the back of the iPhone 6.

Apple is expected to announce two iPhone 6 models later this year — including a 4.7-inch and larger 5.5-inch variant.
