Alleged iPhone 6 Schematic Shows Protruding Camera
When the first snapshot of the so-called iPhone 6 emerged from China through Weibo, many of us questioned its authenticity, since it was showing an iPod Touch-style protruding camera lens and no dual-LED True Tone flash. Today another questionable schematic leak seems to corroborate that previous rumour, suggesting the iPhone 6 camera lens will protrude only up to 0.77 mm.
The schematic allegedly shows the 4.7-inch version of the next-generation iPhone, although previous reports claimed this would be a feature of the bigger, 5.5-inch model, due to its thinness. As you can see, the above image, leaked by apple.club.tw, highlights the thickest part of the iPhone 6, the camera, which will extend the 7 mm case by 0.77 mm (via GforGames).
Furthermore, the report claims the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is codenamed N56 (as seen on the image), and the 5.5-inch model, N61, although there is no evidence to confirm this information.
The alleged schematics suggest Apple will likely opt for a round flash with the iPhone 6, which is in line with previous leaks.
As with every sketchy rumour, this one has to be taken with a grain of salt. We will find out what Apple has been working on in its labs in September, when the company is expected to unveil the next-generation iPhone.
