Mockups and Case Designs for the iPhone 6 Found at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair
As we get deeper into 2014, rumors of the iPhone 6 have begun to pick up with case designs, schematics, molds and alleged iPhone parts surfacing over the last few weeks to give everyone a hint at what Apple’s larger iPhone might look like. The Japanese site, Mac Otakara has recently shared some additional images of iPhone 6 mockups and accessories being displayed in several different booths at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair.
One of the iPhone 6 mockups that has allegedly been used to create cases for the next version of the iPhone. Although few details can be gleaned from the model, it does appear to be larger in size with rectangular volume buttons and a sleep/wake power button on the right hand side of the device, which is in line with some of the previous rumors. It also possesses a round camera flash as described in previously released schematics.
The site also published a video displaying some lighting cables aimed at the iPhone 6 as well as a close-up look at the iPhone 6 mockup. It’s unclear whether the mockups and the cases are representative of the actual iPhone 6, but so far the iPhone 6 leaks that are coming out of Asia have all shared many of the same design similarities.
Those of you interested in watching a video of some of the iPhone 6 offerings at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair can do so below:
As of right now, Apple’s iPhone 6 is expected to come in two sizes, at 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches. The majority of leaks we have seen so far have depicted the 4.7-inch version, as it is said to be in production for a September or October release. The 5.5 version has seen some production delays, which could see it being released later in 2014 or in early 2015.
In addition to two display sizes, the iPhone 6 is expected to include an upgraded A8 processor, camera improvements in the form of optical image stabilization, slimmer bezels, a thinner chassis and Touch ID support. We’ll have to wait and see what the actual iPhone 6 is like when more concrete information is released.
