The rough mockup has apparently been finished by hand, and was used for case designs. According to the publication, the iPhone 6 mockup appears to be quite thin, with AppleInsider noting a resemblance between the metal mockups and a previous leak that supposedly showed an image of the iPhone 6’s back.
“Both the mockup and the alleged case back include a protruding rear-facing camera lens and single round flash module, inconsistent with current models that sport a flush-mounted lens and pill-shaped True Tone dual-LED flash,” the blog wrote.
Macotakara has posted a video showing the metal iPhones, as well as images that reveal there’s already plenty of excitement surrounding the unreleased iPhone 6. One picture even shows an entire accessory display for the iPhone 6 under an “iPhone 6 coming soon” message.
Interestingly, in the past, case makers presented many iPhone case designs that suggested Apple would soon launch an iPhone with a bigger screen than 4 inches. However, Apple’s following iPhone models contradicted the case leaks from China.
