A purported back panel for the 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 – also known as the iPhone Air – surfaced today in a new video.
While parts for the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 have shown up a nearly daily basis as of late, parts for the rumored 5.5-inch version of the device have been far more scarce to come by. While a few have appeared here or there, it is has been infrequent enough to make people question whether or not Apple’s first phablet was indeed going to launch this year.
This new video from Nowhereelse.fr – a site with a good track record for Apple leaks – shows off what appears to be the rear panel for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6. The video shows off the antenna bands we’ve been seeing for some time now, the cut outs for the new placement of the power button as well as the elongated volume button slots. The report also says that Apple has indeed settled on the name “iPhone Air” for the larger device.
Apple has an event scheduled for Sept. 9, and while the company has not revealed for certain what will be shown, the date lines up perfectly with previous iPhone events. Some reports have claimed that while both the 4.7 and 5.5-inch phones will be showed off at the event, Apple could potentially stagger the releases with the smaller phone launching in Sept. and the iPhone Air being released in Oct.
TechnoBuffalo will be in attendance at the Sept. 9 event, so stay tuned for all of the coverage.
