iPhone 6 Shown in Another High-Quality Physical Mockup

As design drawings and renderings of two larger iPhone 6 models have begun giving way to physical mockups based on those designs, a new photo of a high-quality physical mockup has been shared by Italian site Macitynet [Google Translate].

Few new details can be determined from the photo, but the relocated power button on the side of the device can be seen, and it is clearly a high-quality mockup given differing materials and colors used for various features such as the rear camera and flash. The size of the device is not given, but just based on the look in the hand it appears to be the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 rather than the even larger 5.5-5.7 inch version depicted in the less refined physical mockup from earlier today.

The latest mockup is reportedly the work of a case manufacturer, and Macitynet understands that mockups have been refined over a period of months. According to the source, the version shown in the photo is considered to be "final" for the purposes of ensuring case and accessory compatibility with the expected design of the iPhone 6.
In practice, this model would be made molds of the latest cases and tested the prototypes of the enclosures to verify their compatibility with the real iPhone 6. It is not uncommon that during the process of engineering accessories manufacturers are forced to progressively refine their plans, as they come, of course, under the table, information on the specifications of the phones. In practical terms, it was explained, in recent months there have been various "versions" experienced by manufacturers of accessories (and these were modeled and rendered drawings of the iPhone 6), but there is now confidence that this one located final.
The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is reportedly scheduled to launch around the usual September timeframe, while the larger 5.5-inch is rumored to be arriving several months later.

I still think this is the new iPod touch we are seeing... I think Apple wants the iPhone to be noticeably different from the iPod Touch - and this is not.

Hope that iphone 6 won't look like this. I know that iphone is famous for it's simplicity and I really like the design of previous models but they've gone too far with this one. The metal edges also were thing iphone was famous for and wothout it it looks to dark and to simple. To sum up-THIS IS ****!!!

What a bunch of self-entitled spoiled brats some of you come off as. Seems like every Macrumors thread now gets taken over by trollish or just generally annoyingly childish behavior, complaining that every product Apple release should be revolutionary and groundbreaking.

I have news for you: when a certain tech reaches maturity (unlike some posting here), every sequel will be iterative.

This video comes to mind... :p http://youtu.be/uEY58fiSK8E

I have a hard time believing any mock up that has a round flash. I imagine the iPhone 6 will have a pill shaped dual flash just like the 5s...


They could use one flash and have it flash in two colors.
