Is This the Back of the iPhone 6?

Australian blog MacFixIt has gotten its hands on what it claims is the upcoming iPhone 6, leaked by "sources inside the supply chain" -- and it seems to reaffirm the shape hinted at by earlier rumours.

The leaked rear chassis purports to be from the 4.7-inch model -- the smaller of two devices rumoured to be planned for launch in late 2014. So far, no leaks of the larger device have surfaced.

This piece of metal, resplendent in protective wrapping -- you can make out a flash of silver if you look carefully -- shares features shown in images leaked by Sonny Dickinson earlier this month. It has two distinct antenna breaks at the top and bottom, rounded corners, a circular cutout for the LED flash and a larger overall size than the current iPhone 5s.

Of course, the veracity of this rear chassis is up for debate -- and we have long enough until the fourth quarter of this year for Apple to release something quite different, because it certainly won't appear at next week's Worldwide Developers' Conference. Sadly, we'll just have to wait see. [MacFixit via 9to5Mac]
