Semi-Functional iPhone 6S Caught on Video

By James O Malley on at

We're now only probably a couple of weeks away from the official iPhone 6S unveiling, but it seems the tech press can't wait as MacRumours has managed to get its hands on a semi-functional iPhone 6S, seemingly made by combining various leaked components.

In the video below, you can see it all assembled and functional to the extent that the device is able to power up the screen and display a little cog shape. To fill in the blanks, MacRumours used components from an iPhone 6.

Apparently based on the 6S logic board and display they do have, it is still unclear whether the iPhone 6S will support ForceTouch (as has been extensively rumoured), though looking at the chips does reveal that the 6S will use Qualcomm's WTR3925 radio frequency transceiver chip to replace two separate transceiver chips on the 6. What this means is that it appears as though the 6S could support even faster 4G as the chip will be able to aggregate together different frequencies to provide faster speeds.

Other than that, it appears that what the new phone will be like is set to remain a mystery until the expected reveal on September 9th... unless we get any more, even more extensive leaks before then. [MacRumours]
