Purported Foxconn images confirm iPhone 6 lens protrusion, case info

updated 09:18 am EDT, Fri August 22, 2014

Reports, if accurate, shed light on earlier reports of thin device

A French Apple enthusiast site has published some photos from a screen, alleging that they come from Foxconn, detailing construction details and dimensions of Apple's new iPhone line. The screenshots, dating in some cases back to February, confirm the raised camera lens detail demonstrated in leaks a few days ago.

The report from iGen also purports that Apple experimented with a 2.5mm audio jack instead of the more standard 3.5mm plug. Durability concerns aside, there is no current data to suggest that Apple has shifted to the smaller plug.

The camera lens is shown to protrude 0.77mm from both the 4.7- and 5.5-inch models, at least when the pictures were taken. A second prototype of the 5.5-inch model reportedly has a 0.67mm protrusion. In comparison in the picture is the N51, which is the Apple iPhone 5s.

Given the relative age of the screenshots, and the lack of any positive confirmation that the pictures are genuine and not an obfuscated forgery, the device shown and the specifications given may not be representative of the actual product. Before the iPhone 5 release, industry speculation, and screenshots such as this, pegged the device to be teardrop shaped, a form factor that has yet to materialize.

    If Steve Jobs isn't turning over in his grave, I think I need to do it for him. This is not a design element to compromise on. Make the case bigger and add more battery capacity.
