Crazy Russians cobble together ‘working’ iPhone 6 from leaked parts

iPhone 6 components have been leaking out of China like a broken fire hydrant, and while we’ve joked that someone could probably make a working iPhone out of all them, the guys at Feld and Volk actually went and did it.

Using parts sourced from their suppliers in China, the Russian luxury iPhone modifiers have assembled an iPhone 6 using a leaked case, logic board, display, true-tone flash and camera, and then connected the hacked-together device to iTunes just to see what would happen. To their surprise the device booted up, but couldn’t connect to the software update servers.

Check out the full hands-on video below:

The iPhone 6 will be revealed in all its glory on September 9th with a bigger display, mobile payments supported by NFC, an improved camera, faster A8 processor and speedier LTE.
