Images showing the back panel of the forthcoming 4.7 inch iPhone 6 have been leaked today by Feld & Folk, the highlight of which is an embossed logo on the rear which is made of scratch proof materials, plus snaps of the devices recessed volume buttons.
Today’s leaked images are from Feld & Folk who have also leaked images of the rear shell. The company describes itself as an association of engineers who focus specifically on custom luxury iPhone products. In the image below you can see the solid, uni-body aluminum rear of the device which has literally been carved out out of one chunk of metal. The tooling involved is impressive and should help make the new iPhone 6 feel good in the hand.
There have been so many leaks in the last few weeks in relation to Apple’s forthcoming iPhone launches, but one of them can now be put to bed. This embossed Apple logo pretty much confirms that the logo will not be used as a notifications light, something which had been considered when a cut out of the logo was spotted. However the embossed logo would actually seem to fit exactly the cut out hole on the rear.
There was also an image showing in more detail the cutouts on the chassis for the iPhone 6’s recessed volume buttons. This is a change from the current design and will allow the device to have a lower profile and possibly less chance of the buttons being accidentally used.
The final snap includes what appears to be a peek at the rear camera lens which seems to protrude quite far from the chassis itself. It’s actually quite difficult to really assume too much about the camera at this stage, and after all, rumors are just rumors and these images could indeed be completely bogus. We will probably have wait until September 9th for the real details.
