Following the recent parade of iPhone 6 mockups, a new report by Japanese web site Nikkei (spotted by G Games) claims that the final iPhone 6 design will have straight lines across the back and that the back will look largely similar to the current iPhone 5s model.
The report could also explain why most mockups to date have strangely shown round camera flash parts. Apple switched to a pill-shaped dual-color “True Tone” flash starting with the iPhone 5s last year, a feature the company will likely continue to offer with this year’s flagship model.
An additional change to the iPhone 6’s back panel, however, may include the Apple logo itself. Monday’s report claimed that the logo will actually be cut out of the aluminum in Apple’s next handset, which would be a change from the engraved logo on previous iPhones.
Finally, the report claimed that the final design of the “iPhone 6” will sport curved glass. According to the newspaper, this would allow the display to blend more seamlessly into the curved sids of the handset.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
