Feld & Volk is on a roll. The Russian retailer, known for modifying Apple handsets into luxury items, has leaked a number of parts from Apple’s next-generation iPhone.
Most recently, it shared pictures of a completed logic board confirming that the “iPhone 6” will more than likely feature NFC technology and a faster A8 chip.
A little more than a week ago, the company also leaked the first images of a fully assembled handset.
But their latest endeavor is a little hard to believe. In a recently posted video, Feld & Volk claims to show an “iPhone 6” built from leaked parts actually booting up all the way to the “connect to iTunes” screen.
Here’s the complete hands-on video comparing the new iPhone with a current-generation iPhone 5s. Click here if you can’t see it.
There’s just one slight problem, though. Feld & Volk’s “iPhone 6” is running iOS 7. Apple changed the recovery screen in iOS 8 to feature a red and white iTunes logo, similar to what is found in OS X Yosemite.
And the company only mentions in the YouTube video description the “next luxury version of iPhone 6.” So more than likely, the crafty Russians are getting an early start at modifying the handset using parts they’ve already obtained.
But at least it’s something to talk about heading into the long holiday weekend here in the United States.
The “iPhone 6” is expected to be unveiled at Apple’s media event on Tuesday, Sept. 9. Two versions of the handset are expected to be announced – one with a 4.7-inch screen and a larger 5.5-inch version.
