The rumored pictures display this new 6.1-inch iPhone from the back. According to the photos, the rear panel is quite stylish and trendy, it is made of metal instead of glass. The rear panel design also shows that it could support wireless charging.

IS THE LEAK TRUSTWORTHY?
According to sources, till now the leak has only gained 50% trust score which reflects it could be just fake. According to the iPhones drawings, it seems like the prototype unit could be a genuine spoiler.
The leak of the new iPhone is indefinite as the developers have obtained access to a screenshot of iOS 12 from an upcoming iPad model. As per the screenshot, it has multitasking mode with two applications and round corners. So, it seems like an upcoming iPad model will be sporting an iPhone X-esque full-screen presentation with bent corners.
