Since the drawings and designs of the two iPhone 6 models have begun to appear on the internet, there were plenty of physical dummies to follow and now there is another high quality mockup has been shared by Italian site Macitynet. The picture is enough to arrive at a few new details regarding the phone which were not revealed previously. The difference in the materials used and the colors clearly show that it is high quality mockup after all. The large power button has been relocated on the side of the device and though this is merely the dummy, but the elements used for the flash and the back panel are certainly of high quality.
We haven’t been given the exact size of the device but we can determine a rough figure by the look of the phone in the hand and it appears to be 4.7-inch iPhone 6 rather than the even larger 5.5-5.7 inch version depicted in the less refined physical mockup from earlier today. This new dummy comes from a case manufacturer and it is quite evident that the mockup designs have been perfected and now they come in a more refined form which also makes it easier to determine some of the features. We are hearing from some sources that this dummy design is going to be the final one for the purposes of ensuring case and accessory compatibility with the expected design of the iPhone 6.
“In practice, this model would be made molds of the latest cases and tested the prototypes of the enclosures to verify their compatibility with the real iPhone 6.It is not uncommon that during the process of engineering accessories manufacturers are forced to progressively refine their plans, as they come, of course, under the table, information on the specifications of the phones. In practical terms, it was explained, in recent months there have been various "versions" experienced by manufacturers of accessories (and these were modeled and rendered drawings of the iPhone 6), but there is now confidence that this one located final.”
The 4.7 inch iPhone 6 is going to launch in the month of September like has been mentioned in all the previous leaks. However the larger version which features a 5.5 inch display will makes it s way months later.
