New Photos of Claimed iPhone 6 Parts Show Closer Look at Rear Logo, Revamped Speaker

New photos of various components said to be from the iPhone 6 have been shared by Nowhereelse.fr (Google Translate), giving us a glimpse at both internal and external parts to be used in the device.

The first set of images show SIM card trays and home buttons in a range of three different colors, which may indicate that the iPhone 6 will keep the same space grey, gold, and silver options from the iPhone 5s. This is in line with a previous leaks, including one from last month which also showed SIM trays in three different colors. The SIM trays shown in the photos also appear to be slightly curved, and was likely designed with the iPhone 6's thinner, rounded chassis in mind.

ne_iphone6_embeddedlogo
Another set of photos shows the embedded Apple logo, which has also surfaced in other leaks. However, Nowhereelse indicates that the logo scratches under regular pressure with a knife, and contrasts prior speculation that the logo was made of scratch-resistant metal. Apple has not used an embedded Apple logo on its mobile devices since the original iPhone back in 2007.

ne_iphone6_motorspeaker
Finally, the last set of photos show the internal speaker and vibrator motor of the iPhone 6. Both components appear to be different than their predecessors found in the iPhone 5s, as the internal speaker appears to be larger while the vibrator motor now sports a rectangular design.

According to Re/code, Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 6 on Tuesday, September 9. It is likely that the 4.7-inch version of the device will go on sale about a week later, while the 5.5-inch version may be released at a later time due to production delays. A report yesterday from Re/code also stated that Apple will unveil a wearable device at the event.

An embedded logo? What a dealbreaker. Looks like I will stick with my iPhone 3G. They should fire Jony Ive. This would not have happened under Steve Jobs. This shows the long slide downwards that Apple has been on for several years now. The logos on Android phones are much better. There is no more innovation from Apple anymore. The logo is too black. I can't believe they only use two holes to attach the logo to the case. Jony Ive messed it up again. The logo is not black enough. They should have improved battery capacity instead of messing with the logo. This would not have happened under Steve Jobs. Once again they are concentrating on design instead of features. I guess this means there will be no 256GB iPhone 6. I thought Tim Cook was supposed to be an expert for logos. This is Jony Ive's fault again. As expected, no innovation. They should concentrate more on getting the design right instead of fiddling with all those new features. This looks like a 1:1 rip-off from Android. Looks like the logo will not have NFC. This would not have happened under Steve Jobs.

Lol. I laughed at this.

You're complaining about a logo that "is not black enough". Plus, this might be fake.

Please, wait until Apple at least unveil the iPhone 6 or you have it in your hands before you decide.

As always, the next iPhone will look stunning.

U seriously didn't get the sarcasm here? My god!


Honestly, I wouldn't blame anyone for taking it seriously. With all the weird complaints, some people have, it's getting really difficult to tell apart satire from reality.

Maybe the new logo will stick out of the back exactly the same amount as the protruding camera and this still sit "flat" when lying on a desk or table??


Actually, 4 rubber "feet" (made by 3M) come in the box and get applied to the 4 corners of the phone. This way it sits flush, and won't slide when on a sloped surface. And if one of them happens to peel off, it's only $29.95 for a replacement 4 pack.

Dat Apple logo!



Sad it scratches, because it looks very much like 'Liquid Metal' of the SIM-removal tool.

When I read the first few sentences I was like "Oh god, another moaner". But you pretty much summed up MR ;)

Still not enough. Wake me up when a terabyte iPhone is launched....


If Apple sold a terabyte iPhone, we couldn't afford to buy it anyway.
