With the weeks counting down to the release of the iPhone 6, TMZ has just published some pictures that will undoubtedly garner a lot of attention from Apple Inc.
The photographs purport to be images of the forthcoming Apple handset, with the publication claiming that the model in question was smuggled out of a Foxconn factory in China. Apple has utilized Foxconn’s services in the manufacture of the majority of its smartphones for quite some time.
If the phone in question turns out to be legitimate then it is a major scoop for the publication, and indeed an exciting prospect for all tech followers. The individual who presumably sold the image to TMZ claims that a friend of his smuggled the item out of the Foxconn factory, where he had allegedly worked in designing the outer casing for the new model.
The device in question is said to be significantly lighter than previous iPhone models, and also features a new sensor on the front of the handset. TMZ states that it is not clear what the new sensor’s purpose is, but the published images of the smartphone display this new alleged element very clearly.
