Jimmy Lin, the famous pop star, blogger, car racer and part-time Apple prototype leaker has been spotted flirting with the unreleased iPhone 6.
Lin has posted photos of himself, an iPhone 5 and a purported iPhone 6 on social media site Weibo. The images show the star taking a selfie with the phones along with side by side comparisons of the leaked Apple device.
As with previous leaks we don’t see the screen turned on, leading us to believe this is another iPhone 6 mock-up or simply the shell and display of the new Apple phone assembled but missing the inner guts.
What the images do show are a new look for the iPhone with an all alloy rounded shell which wraps around to meet a white glass front panel. The alloy shell has a gold finish, and we can make out what looks like a 3.5mm headphone jack in the base, lightning connector and single speaker.
