A protruding camera lens on Apple's 4.7-inch 'iPhone 6'?

August 20, 2014

A newly released schematic shows that the 4.7-inch “iPhone 6” will have a protruding camera lens. First posted by Apple Club, the image shows the handset with a 7 mm thick casing with the thickest part of the camera extending 0.77 mm beyond this.

It has been suggested that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 would feature a camera lens that protrudes. This is the first time someone has claimed the same about the smaller handset that Apple is expected to announce next month.

We’ve heard a lot of news about the iPhone 6 in recent days.

On Tuesday, a report claimed that the 4.7-inch model would feature a screen resolution of 1,704 x 960 pixels. The iPhone 5s has a resolution of 1,136 x 640 pixels.

Also yesterday, the first images of a fully assembled iPhone 6 appeared.

As Brent Dirks noted, “the handset takes a number of design cues from the current generation iPad Air and iPad mini with rounded corners, redesigned speaker holes, and more. The tapered edges of the front panel look to easily mesh into the rear shell.”

On Monday, a video was posted purportedly showing a reversible USB connector for the iPhone 6’s Lightning cable. A schematic published on the same day suggested the new handset would feature an NFC chip.
