Sonny Dickson Leaks Images of iPhone 6 Backplate, Says It’s a Real Prototype [PICS]

Prolific Australian Apple parts leaker Sonny Dickson is at again, this time leaking a couple new images of the purported iPhone 6 backplate.

The images were sent out via Twitter and basically show what we’ve seen before, but this time the leak shows more context based on previously leaked parts, such as the protruding camera ring and round True Tone flash, revealed yesterday.

Also, the new antenna bands appear to have a polished finish underneath, below what looks like plastic/rubber lining that has been partially removed.

Dickson responded to one critic questioning the legitimacy of the part with “actually it’s a real prototype part,” and “just wait till it comes out and you will see I was right.”

This round True Tone part leaked yesterday seemingly suggests the current pill-shaped design found in the iPhone 5s is about to change:

Last year, Sonny Dickson leaked images of the gold iPhone 5S rear shell plus images of the space grey model, which proved to be indeed accurate.

Apple is set to announce its iPhone 6 at a media event on September 9, according to media sources.
