Another day, another iPhone 6 rumor. Today we are treated to pictures of a purportedly leaked 4.7-inch iPhone 6 front panel. One immediately notices the significantly larger display, something which many iPhone fan might welcome. There are subtle differences as well which hint that Apple may have shuffled around the internal components a bit. However the front panel gives off an undeniably iPhone look. Since the leak comes from an unofficial source one can never be too sure about its authenticity.
In this particular leaked panel the cutout for the front camera is placed on the left side of the speaker as opposed to the top. Moreover the edges of the front panel appear to be slightly curved towards the end.
Previous rumors have suggested that the iPhone 6′s design will feature rounded edges, much like those on the iPod touch. The curved edges of the front panel could add to that design element but we’ll only know for sure once we get the device in our hands.
Some reports claim that Apple is going to use sapphire glass for the displays on both new iPhone 6 models. No major design changes are being rumored and so far there’s little information available about the actual specifications of the device.
Apple is expected to unveil the new iPhones this September. There has been chatter of a price increase, particularly for the 5.5-inch variant, we’ll have to wait and see how that plays out, though prospective customers say they will be willing to absorb the increase if the next iPhone has a larger display.
