iPhone 6 Video Shows Fully Assembled Design

iphone 6 design

As the Sept. 9 launch date approaches for the iPhone 6, a new video has surfaced showing what appears to be the fully assembled design of Apple’s highly anticipated sequel. Using leaked parts, the device is bigger than the iPhone 5s (as expected) and also sports rounded edges.

The body represents a stark departure from the iPhone 5 and 5s, which has a chassis with squarer edges. In addition, the home button is much closer to the bottom of the design, as it appears Apple has attempted to make more room for the larger display. As rumored, the power button is on the right side of the device, which will make it easy to reach with your thumb.

Supplied by Russia-based YouTube poster Rozetked, the video shows both the white and space gray color options for the iPhone 6. Just like today’s iPhone, the latter hue looks more sophisticated. This particular leak shows the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 versus the 4-inch iPhone 5s. Although there’s a noticeable size difference, we expect many to upgrade to take advantage of the additional screen real estate. The even larger 5.5-inch model (expected to debut at the same time) is not shown in this video.

The iPhone 6 is expected to bring a lot more to shoppers than a bigger display. Other rumors point to a much stronger sapphire crystal screen, a more advanced camera (possibly with swappable lenses), and a faster A8 processor.

More recent reports suggest the iPhone 6 will include NFC capability, allowing the smartphone to double as a wallet. Visa and American Express are among the companies that are supposedly partnering with Apple.

While this cobbled together iPhone 6 doesn’t turn on, we already have a good idea of what to expect on the software front with iOS 8. The software will offer a lot more flexibility than before when it comes to sharing options as well as third-party keyboards. Plus, with HealthKit and HomeKit, the iPhone 6 will interact with a wide range of fitness devices — including the iWatch — and potentially become the remote control of your smart home.

Stay tuned for photos, video and impressions of the real thing come Sept. 9.
