New photos of the iPhone 6 surfaced tonight from Sonny Dickson that appear to show the backplate of the upcoming iPhone 6. Dickson says that these photos were obtained from a source with access to the part, and they do appear to be legitimate.
The first photo, seen above, shows a close-up view of the cutouts for the camera (which appears to be raised), circular True Tone flash, rear microphone, and Apple logo. While it’s entirely possible that these photos are faked, the level of visible detail would make this quite the con job if that turned out to be the case (see the scuffs, scratches, dents, and texture).
Of course, we’ve seen fake wear on iPhone photos before, including the last batch leaked by Sonny, which featured fake fingerprint smudges across the screen.
A second photo, seen below, shows the full view of the rear panel and features identical wear and tear. The design matches previous leaks exactly, so there’s a pretty decent chance that this is the device we’ll end up seeing on September 9th.
