A new video has surfaced from Feld & Volk, an iPhone site and retailer in Russia, purporting to show the 4.7" iPhone 6 back casing in rich detail. Also shown is a sim tray being in inserted into the casing.

If the antenna lines stay as shown, I'll definitely go for the black.

Can't be legit, pix are too clear:D
Hope the rear line breaks are just production placeholders and not final design.
A rear light up Apple would be nice...

This back shell is incredibly thin. That's pretty much what we heard about the sapphire display. Thin and clear. This is a good trend, reducing space in many places. The cutout could improve the antenna, be used for NFC (doubt it) or even less likely, to light up!

I wonder if they can use a material for the logo that would help displace heat from the display? Thoughts?

Will the ugly lines remain?
Probably. The black bar at the bottom or the 2G iPhone and the glass strips on the 5/5s are there because the antenna is obstructed by the metal. The 3G/3GS was all plastic and the 4/4S was all glass so it was a non-issue there.
