iPhone 6 Camera Module and Parts Leak Out Ahead of Official Announcement

Apple’s iPhone event is only days away, and as the clock counts down, the number of  leaked parts seems to be increasing. Today the camera stops by for a look.

The folks over at Feld & Volk have posted some images of the iPhone 6 camera and compared it with the unit used in the iPhone 5s. As you can see the new module is flatter and wider than last year’s, and it also may explain why we’ve seen the camera ring sticking out from the rear shell of the device. As you can see, the lens protrudes from the module somewhat. We’re not sure if this has anything to do with the optical image stabilization (OIS) that is rumored to be being added, or it may possibly have something to do with conserving space on the interior of the device.

Feld & Volk isn’t sure that this module is for the 4.7 or 5.5-inch iPhone 6, but it did try to place it in the smaller phone’s shell that the company had on hand and it did not fit. This suggests that the two models will be using different camera modules, and that while it appears that this version does indeed have the rumored OIS, the smaller iPhone may not.

In addition to the camera module being shown off in new pics, there was a moment for one of the most ignored parts in the new pictures: The protective mesh for the speakers and microphone. While not exciting in their own right, it shows that just about every part of the phone has been leaked at this point.


And last up in today’s leaks is the power button complete with its rubber seal which will help protect protect the internals from dust and moisture.


Apple will hold its iPhone 6 event on Sept. 9. TechnoBuffalo will be in attendance and bringing you all of the coverage live.
