The name Feld & Volk may only ring a bell for fans of customized iPhones with a luxury twist, but the company has leaked some iPhone 6 features in recent times. In July, the company had leaked an unfinished rear shell supposedly belonging to the iPhone 6, and that leak had given us some insight on the device’s design aesthetic. That very same part was leaked late last week, and it now appears to be late in the production stage, if not fully completed.
What’s interesting about Feld & Volk’s new leak is that it shows off several iPhone 6 features that were not evident on earlier models or mock-ups. The volume control holes appear to be recessed, and this could be Apple’s way of preventing accidental spikes or drops in volume when the volume controls inadvertently get pressed. There also seems to be a metal Apple logo on the back, embedded quite similarly to the Apple logo that was one of the original iPhone’s features in 2007. Feld & Volk believes that the logo may be made out of a Liquidmetal alloy, or a “very extraordinary” and scratch-resistant alloy, as the company describes it.
The purpose of the external camera ring that seems to fit snugly into the 4.7-inch iPhone 6’s rear camera hole is still unknown, but it’s another interesting and heretofore unseen feature that suggests the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 won’t have a flush camera design. Likewise, there are also some doubts regarding the final iPhone 6 feature – a flex cable that may belong to the device’s home button. According to MacRumors, the length of the cable makes it possible that the part actually belongs to Apple’s next-generation full-size tablet, the iPad Air 2.
