Front Panel from 4.7-Inch iPhone 6 Once Again Shown in Photos

Taiwanese Apple news website AppleClub (Google Translate, via 9to5Mac) shares new photos of the supposed front panel from the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, including the device's display and its insides.

The images are consistent with prior leaks of the iPhone 6's front panel, showing a larger screen, a thinner bezel, rounded edges, and a cutout for the Touch ID home button. The panel depicted also features the front-facing camera and the ambient light sensor located on the left and at the top respectively, which is similar to the design of the iPhone 4.

It is not known whether the display shown is made of sapphire, which was once rumored to come with the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. However, recent rumors have suggested that the smaller iPhone 6 will not come with a sapphire display, as rigorous scratch tests may instead hint at a more durable glass screen. Sapphire panels may come to the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6, which is reported to feature a number of other differentiating factors including a faster processor and a camera with optical image stabilization.

Apple's next-generation iPhone will be revealed at an event on September 9, with sales likely commencing roughly a week and a half afterward. It is likely that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will launch first, as the 5.5-inch model is said to be experiencing production issues that may lead to a delayed release.

I'm starting to believe the 5.5-inch will NOT happen at the same time as the 4.7-inch. :(

That display looks nothing like this:



Where are the thinner side bezels? Where is the slightly curved edges? Even the top and bottom bezels looks smaller with the display shown on YouTube. :confused:

there has never been any proof of a 5.5" version. There was equal proof of that awesome teardrop shaped phone that people thought was what the iPhone 5 was going to be that never happened

Do all of your brains get wiped clean every week?
There IS proof of a 5.5 inch iPhone because there have been logic board leaks in 2 different sizes, with one of them too wide to fit in the 4.7 shell and too short to be for an iPad.
There were posts with both the logic boards only a few weeks ago.

Forget it mate, I've been saying the same stuff for a while now. Some people on here don't want a 5.5 inch iPhone and can't see the benefit or reasoning of other people wanting one so therefor they don't want one and think because they don't want one no one else wants one and must deny it's possible existence.

This is the panel shown off by Marcus Brownlee on YouTube. Seems more legit to me considering all the case leaks we've seen show curved edges.
