Could this be the front display for Apple's bigger, 4.7-inch 'iPhone 6' handset?

August 11, 2014

Images out of Taiwan this weekend claim to picture a manufactured front display belonging to Cupertino’s “iPhone 6” device.

The pictures, from (and via 9to5mac), show off a larger iPhone handset that features a similar color scheme, thinner bezels, and a bigger, glass-coated display. In addition, the handset’s speaker and Touch ID sections are also slightly reworked in order to accommodate the larger screen size.

Further round, on the device’s rear, the display appears to include an installed backlight, and a QR code and serial number feature on the part, too. Of course, it’s impossible to say whether the piece is genuine, but from where we stand the above part could be one of the best “iPhone 6” leaks to date.

Besides the above, there’s also a pair of flex cables, and the connectors here are somewhat different compared with the current-generation iPhone 5s. Below, we’ve included the full selection of images.

Apple is expected to unveil its “iPhone 6” at a dedicated media event next month: recent reports have claimed that the device could feature a 2,100 mAh battery and that Apple’s event may be scheduled for Sept. 9. Cupertino’s long-awaited 5.5-inch iPhone, however, could be delayed until 2015, a separate report argued.

We’ll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
