A new set of leaked iPhone 6 photos from luxury iPhone upgraders Feld & Volk reveal that Apple’s next handset may come with recessed volume buttons, a protruding camera lens, and an embeddable Apple logo that might be made of Liquidmetal.
The iPhone 6 is expected to be unveiled next month, but a plethora of leaks flooding out of Shenzhen have already given fanboys an idea what to expect, and these new photos add a few more pieces to the puzzle with details on how Apple will slim the profile of the device and make your shiny Apple logo scratch-resistant.
Take a look at the allegedly leaked parts below:
Recessed volume buttons
After leaking pics of an iPhone 6 rear shell last month, Feld & Volk claims it received a completed 4.7-inch iPhone 6 rear shell that has slightly recessed volume buttons. The slight tweak will give the iPhone 6 a sleeker side edge and could prevent accidental damage to the buttons.
Previous leaks have hinted that the iPhone 6 will have a protruding camera like the iPod Touch, but Feld & Volk's photos give us our first look at the external camera ring. It fits perfectly against the rear hole of the shell and measures 6.66mm in diameter.
Fans have gotten their hopes up for a glowing Apple logo on the iPhone 6, but the leaked photos show Apple plans to just use an embedded logo. Feld & Volk speculates that it could be made of Liquidmetal as its extraordinarily scratch-resistant.
Rear shell and flex cable
The leaked images also contain an alleged home button flex cable, but it's so long, there's no way it'd fit in the chunky 4.7-inch iPhone. Perhaps it's for actually for an upcoming iPad instead.
