Alleged iPhone 6 Backplate Leaked

back coverWe have come across many iPhone 6 mockups in the past, some of which are designed based on alleged leaked schematics, and some were made by case manufacturers to test their cases with. Now according to Australian website, Macfixit, they claim to have received a photo (to the right) which supposedly shows off the back cover of the iPhone 6.

It’s a bit hard to tell the size of the phone based on this photo, but presumably it will be either the 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch variety, two sizes which the iPhone 6 is rumored to come in. The color of the iPhone 6 will not be green, and the green color is probably a film used to protect it from scratches. As you can see in the camera cutout area, there is a hint of silver, suggesting that this could be the backplate for the silver model.

The design also seems to be in line with what we’ve seen so far. The edges appear to be more curved, at least compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 5s. Oddly enough the backplate’s flash cutout shows that it only has room for a single flash, suggesting that Apple might have gotten rid of its True Tone flash.

This seems unlikely since it was one of the features Apple marketed heavily with the iPhone 5s, so it doesn’t make sense that Apple would remove the feature so fast, unless of course they found a better solution.
