Leaked iPhone 6s Plus Rear Shell Allegedly Features Stronger Material [Photos]

A batch of photos of a purported ‘iPhone 6s’ rear housing in gold, obtained by Future Supplier and reposted today by French blog NowhereElse.fr, serve as our best indication yet that Apple’s upcoming smartphone refresh will re-use the exterior design of the current-generation (shocker!).

More important than that, however, the photos suggest the upcoming handsets will introduce minuscule changes to the internal layout, with a source claiming a “stronger” Unibody construction and a change to the material’s feel.

The claimed golden shell shows little, if any, visual differences between the upcoming and current iPhone models in terms of the exterior. Taking a closer look at the internal layout, however, does reveal a few noteworthy differences.

As for the internal components, rumors have pointed to an updated Qualcomm baseband modem for up to twice as fast 4G LTE networking at 300Mbps, improved NFC, Force Touch input, a faster and more reliable Touch ID, an Apple-designed “A9” processor with 2GB of RAM and more.

The new iPhones are expected to launch in September as Apple’s suppliers have just started volume production of critical parts, with the firm’s contract manufacturers currently hiring tens of thousands of workers for iPhone assembly lines.
