Leaked iPhone 6 photos from Foxconn plant show super thin phone
Yet more iPhone 6 information leaked, three photos allegedly showing the actual product were recently posted on a China-based Weibo account.
Supposedly the three photos come from within Foxconn, for those of you unaware this is Apple’s primary manufacturer. They show what appears to be a thin iPhone undergoing testing at a production facility. The photos here are remarkable similar to the renders and blueprints we looked at in a recent blog. The silver iPhone look so thin that it appears as though the camera lens sticks out from the smartphone’s body although I hope this isn’t the case.
As well as being unusually thin rumours suggest a larger display is on the table, compared to its predecessors, for Apple’s next-generation iPhone. Bloomberg claimed in November that Apple was testing 4.7- and 5.5-inch screen sizes for upcoming iPhones, and The Wall Street Journal even mentioned a 5.7-inch version. Whether any of these comes to fruition is yet to be seen.
Other reports have claimed the iPhone 6 will have curved glass. Specifically, the same November report from Bloomberg suggested we could see the display glass curve downwards. This is not evident in these pictures or the renders we saw yesterday however. Apple is also expected to ditch Gorilla Glass and opt for stronger sapphire glass.
These are of course all rumours in their entirety. So keep in mind that if the final product may be bright yellow and square. Saying that the iPod touch is very thin as well, and its camera lens noticeably protrudes.
