iPhone 6: This May Be The Actual Hardware

by Jacob Kleinman | June 26, 2014June 26, 2014 9:00 am PST

We’ve already seen plenty of iPhone 6 dummy units and even a few photos of what might actually be the upcoming smartphone, but a new video from Mac Otakara offers our first up-close look at the device. Another report also suggests Apple will mix up its storage offerings for the first time in years with the iPhone 6 this fall.

The video below shows the alleged iPhone 6 rear shell next to a pair of dummy units and the real iPhone 5s. The hardware design of the mockups and the leaked unit matches up perfectly, suggesting that rounded shape could be legitimate. The inside of the back panel doesn’t reveal much, but certainly looks like the real deal with lots of grooves and details where internal components would presumably sit.

Meanwhile, a new report from Chinese blog Feng suggests Apple may offer a 128GB iPhone 6 variant this year, though only for its rumored 5.5-inch model. The claim follows another rumor just yesterday that Apple would ditch its 16GB option entirely for the new device, offering a 32GB variant as its cheapest iPhone 6 model instead. There’s no word on how this might affect pricing, but hopefully Apple will keep offering a $200 on-contract option.

We’re also starting to hear rumors that Apple could announce the iPhone 6 at an event on September 19, though there’s no hard proof that Apple has plans to do that. Either way, we’re not expecting the company to unveil its next smartphone until sometime this fall. Until then you can check out today’s iPhone 6 video leak below.
