Fully Assembled Sixth-Gen iPhone In White Makes A Video Appearance From IFA
There’s no need to worry about the constant sixth-generation iPhone news for much longer. With Apple hopefully about to issue official press event invites for the September 12th announcement, the speculation and conjecture roundabout will come to an end and we can concentrate on actually using and getting to know the new iPhone intricately. It’s hard to actually imagine or be surprised by anything related to the new iPhone now, considering that we have seen so many leaked components and already know pretty much exactly what will be introduced in the coming weeks.
The small parts that make up the device may no longer be exciting to us, but what about a video that shows what is said to be the new iPhone in all of its unpowered glory? The video is coming courtesy of an Israel based YouTube account that has been attending the IFA trade show that is currently going on in Berlin. Going about their everyday business during the event, they claim to have come across a manufacturer of smartphone cases who just happened to have the new iPhone on the table of their booth.
The recorders of the video are claiming that the owner of the purported device specifically asked them to not name his company, as well as not turning the device on, which is why the video is just a quick overview of the externals of the device. At this point, we don’t really have any clue whether or not the device is real, or just an elaborate creation based on the leaked components that have been flying around the internet for the last few months. From inspecting the video, it certainly looks like what we are expecting from the Apple announcement with the smaller dock connector, two tone uni-body rear, and the redesigned speaker grills, as well as the elongated display.
It could also be that this is just a shell of a device that is sent to large case manufacturers so that they can produce their products to the exact device specifications in preparation for the actual phone launch. The disappointing thing is that we may never know if this was legitimate or fake, but then again, does it really matter when it’s only a matter of days until we can get our hands on the real thing?
