Photos featuring the component have been shared by Sonny Dickson, the same person who had shared pictures of the dummy models, and of iPhone 5S and 5C before their release. The pictures were first published by 9to5mac.
The pictures also feature a ruler used for taking the panel’s measurements. Diagonally, the panel measures 14cm or 5.5-inch, as seen on the pictures. It’s being rumoured that the 5.5-inch iPhone will be released after the 4.7-inch variant and will be in short supply.
Judging by his past, Dickson has a good record when it comes to iPhone leaks.
Going by previously leaked images, both models of the iPhone 6 appear to sport a similar design with a thinner profile compared to iPhone 5/5S, rounded edges and different antenna cut-outs, in addition to a non-glass, metal back. Both feature a TouchID sensor integrated with the Home button. The power button is placed on the right side.
Apple’s next-generation iPhone is expected to arrive in fall (September-October). It has been reported several times in the past that Apple will unveil two iPhones this year, one with a 4.7-inch screen and other with 5.5- or 5.7-inch display.
In February this year, the first set of leaked iPhone images surfaced on the internet. These images showed that the next-generation iPhone will sport a design similar to that of iPad Air and be much thinner than the iPhone 5S.
Other rumoured features of the next-generation iPhone include health-centred apps, 13MP camera, solar charging, scratch-resistant sapphire screen, better battery and faster Wi-Fi.- TOI
