Metal ‘iPhone 6’ Mockups, Cases Debut at Hong Kong Electronics Fair [PICS]


Some savvy entrepreneurs at the Spring 2014 Hong Kong Electronics fair has started to show off alleged iPhone 6 metal mockups and cases on display at its booth, reports Japanese site Macotakara. The site attended the fair and has posted some images and a video of what was on hand.

Below we see a booth with a banner that reads “iPhone 6 Coming Soon”:


Here are some plastic molds for case manufacturers to observe and also a brushed metal mockup of the next generation iPhone:



The backside here shows a circular-shaped flash as cited in supposed leaked schematics, unlike the current pill-shaped True Tone flash found on the iPhone 5s. Earlier rumours hinted the next iPhone camera may include image stabilization:


Below are recent renders based on leaked schematics, which has some similarities with the metal mold, notably the rounded design and camera/flash design:

Earlier today we saw alleged leaks of the iPhone 6 front panel and batteries. The next iPhone is rumoured to be available in 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch models.

    Can’t we all picture Jony Ive’s nauseating monologue during the promotional video that’s sure to come, (set in front of a white back drop of course)? I’ll take a stab at it:

    “It’s not just a larger screen, it’s the evolution of a product and the simplicity within the new space. With the iphone 6 we’re taking elements that were painstakingly chosen and letting them breathe in regions which were previously inaccessible to the user. It’s one thing to offer additional pixels, but a complete other to intelligently make use of them. The iphone 6 does just that.”

    I guarantee it’ll be something ridiculous like that.
