Some new shots of a purported iPhone 6 metal chassis have appeared on the web today. The images line up with previously leaked iPhone 6 design schematics, a blurry picture of a frame, dummy models, cases, and manufacturing components. Shots of the sides below:

As can be seen in the photos above, the new iPhone will be made from metal, will be ultra-thin, and include various antenna cutouts throughout the rear of the device. Apple is working on 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models, but the chassis above looks to belong to the smaller of the duo.

You can see in the photo to the right that Apple has moved the sleep/wake/power key to the side of the device in order to make it more accessible via one-hand usage.

The new iPhone will likely include a 1704 x 960 resolution display with a sharper pixel density, a more efficient A8 processor, and it will run the new iOS 8 with health-tracking integration, improved photo synchronization with iCloud, and new messaging features.
