Slim iPhone 6 body shown off in high-res photos

iPhone 6

The iPhone 6 has been shown off yet again in a set of high-resolution photographs, highlighting its slimline body.

There have been a multitude of iPhone 6 leaks doing the rounds of late, especially since the September 9 launch date was confirmed.

The latest is a selection of high-resolution photographs of the assembly parts of the iPhone 6 posted to Chinese site. As you can see above and below, the images give us a very clear look at the iPhone 6 ahead of launch.

The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is expected to be a svelte 7mm thick, while the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Air is tipped to be just 6.7mm thick. It’s not clear which model is being shown off here, but it certainly looks a lot thinner than the current iPhone 5S in these shots.

You can see the tweaked design, with more rounded edges like the iPod Touch or iPad mini 2. The only thing breaking the all metal body are two strips of plastic, which will be used to house the antennae as with previous models.

There’s the cut outs for the elongated volume rocker, the mute switch and SIM card slot. There’s also a space for the relocated power button, to be found on the right hand side of the phone above the SIM card.

The lighting port is still there of course, buffered by the headphone jack and some redesigned speaker grilles.

It also looks like Apple is looking to launch the iPhone 6 in the usual white and space grey options, as can be seen by the pictured front plates.

With these images leaked so close to launch and with Apple branding on them, we’re inclined to believe these are the real deal.

The iPhone 6 launch event has been scheduled for September 9, so stay tuned for all the official news next week.
