Mac Otakara has posted a video it says is of the actual back of the 4.7-inch model of the iPhone 6, contrasting it with much simpler mockups.

While there’s no way to assess whether the part is genuine, it certainly looks convincing. The many mockups floating around are essentially featureless inside, but this appears to have the detail of the real thing. If it’s a hoax, it’s an extremely elaborate one … 

Here’s a cleaned-up close-up of the inside:


We’ve previously seen claimed photos of both the front and back of the iPhone 6, but this is the first time we’ve seen video.

Chinese site Feng.com is also claiming that the 4.7-inch model will come in only two options, 32GB and 64GB, while the 5.5-inch model will add the option of 128GB. The site echoes an earlier report from Deutsche Telekom that Apple is finally dropping the 16GB entry-level option on the new phones.

While dropping the 16GB tier would certainly make sense, and is something I’ve previously suggested Apple might do, we’re viewing the rumor with some caution for now.

There does, though, seem to be growing evidence that the smaller and larger iPhone 6 models will differ in more than just physical size, an earlier KGI report suggesting that the 5.5-inch model will get optical image stabilization while the 4.7-inch model may not.
