A series of blurred photos from Chinese site Weibo may show Apple’s next-generation smartphone, presumed to be the iPhone 6, in development at Foxconn.

Posted via GforGames, the photos (below) are allegedly from an insider at the manufacturing plant of a prototype iPhone 6 with, what looks like, a camera extending beyond the body of the phone.

According to the site, the captured sketches claim the smartphone may be 7mm thick, which, they claim, has created a dilemma for Apple. The slim body of iPhone could cause the camera to protrude out of the rear, as the images appear to show, which could be aesthetically unappealing. Apple may choose to increase the thickness of the device so the camera sits flush with the back, the site muses.

The quality of the images ensure their validity cannot be confirmed and the front of the device is not shown but, if legitimate, the images would indicate that Apple will continue with a similar design to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s.

Recent speculation has Apple launching two new iPhone devices in September, at two new display sizes.

Reports, bolstered by the success of larger smartphones from Samsung and HTC, have started to conclude Apple will unveil a 5.5in iPhone and a 4.7in iPhone with a slim bezel, upgraded processor and improved camera.
