If there’s one thing we all want to see with a new or even unreleased phone, it’s the thing getting torn asunder so we can see all the gubbins inside. Right?
Well perhaps not, we here at KYM are a bit more interested in using devices rather than dismantling them, but whatever, apparently there are people out there who love this stuff, and so Russian tech site Rozetked has gone ahead and pulled the iPhone 6 apart.
Quite how they got hold of an iPhone 6 already remains a mystery considering it’s not expected to launch until September 9, and even that is a logical assumption rather than official fact.
Apple is possibly the most secretive tech company on the planet, it hasn’t even said what the event is for and puts very tight controls on its staff to prevent leaks.
But there you have it, clear as day, the video hosted on Youtube shows the iPhone 6 side-by-side with an iPhone 5S for comparison purposes, and we get a look at what’s under the back panel.
It is, of course, possible that this is an extremely detailed mockup that someone has constructed based on what they expect to see. However, the Youtube channel has previously taken apart Samsung devices which are apparently the real deal, so it seems legit.
Rumours currently suggest Apple will launch the 4.7in iPhone 6 alongside a 5.5in phablet at the September 9 event. It’s also thought the iWatch may be revealed, but multiple sources say the iWatch will not hit stores until 2015. Also expected for the September 9 event is the unveiling of Apple’s alleged mobile payment service, thought to be tied into TouchID and NFC - Apple is said to have inked deals with Visa, MasterCard, and American Express, as well as key banks and retailers around the globe.
