Usually, leaked images for future Apple products come out as the expected announcement date comes closer. Although no one has really agreed on a date for the announcement (June at WWDC, July or usual September), one thing is clear, we will see the iPhone 6 before the end of the year. The alleged front display was leaked recently alongside the current iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5/5S display.
Front Panel Leaked (03/02/14)
iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 front panels
The iPhone 6 front panel has no side bezels and shows a larger display. GSMArena calculated the size of the display based on the two beside it to be around 4.3 inches. This is smaller than the rumored size of the new iPhone (between 4.7″ and 5.5″). I do have some problems with this alleged iPhone 6 display. First and foremost, is the size. It is extremely smaller than the rumors and it is not a large enough jump from the iPhone 5/5s. The absence of bezels of the side and slightly smaller bezels on top do increase the display, but there is little difference compared to the 5s. Also, the Home button cut out is cutting into the touchscreen. Apple has a huge attention to detail and the Home button is no longer positioned in the middle of the bottom bezel. They will likely keep the Home bottom centered on the iPhone 6. It looks like it was cut incorrectly or this is not actually an iPhone 6 front panel. I would take this picture with a grain of salt, it might be a display of the prototype, but likely not part of the iPhone 6 we will see in a few months.
iPhone 6 (leaked from early February)
This picture that was leaked in early February (credit: MacRumors) seems more legitimate than the leaked front panel. The Home button is perfectly centered, the display looks larger, the device looks thinner and it appears to have a redesign. MacRumors also calculated this display to be 4.7″. Even if this picture is fake, it gives us a good idea of what the rumors are suggesting.
On a final note, no one really knows what the iPhone 6 will look like, but I think we will find out real soon. Follow on Twitter for the latest rumors and on Facebook for daily tips for saving battery power.
