New images show a fully assembled 'iPhone 6' for the first time

August 19, 2014

With three weeks left until the announcement of Apple’s next-generation iPhone, we’re getting an even better look at the 4.7-inch version of the handset.

MacRumors has once again shared a set of images from Russian luxury iPhone retailer Feld & Volk. The new pictures are notable because it is the first time we’ve seen a fully assembled “iPhone 6.”

As you can see, 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.

The assembled handset measures in at just 7 mm thin, compared with the 7.6 mm iPhone 5s.

Along with a round True Tone flash, the power button has been moved to the right side of the handset to make it easier to operate with a larger screen.

As noted by MacRumors, the assembled device is made with unfinished parts, so the actual iPhone could look even better. But I definitely like what I see so far.

Along with the pictured 4.7-inch device, Apple is also expected to unveil a version of the iPhone with a larger, 5.5-inch screen. Both iPhones are expected to feature a faster A8 chip, an improved camera, and other new features like NFC.

Rumors currently have the smaller iPhone being available around 10 days after the announcement on Tuesday, Sept. 9. The larger device could hit the market a month later.
