New photos of purported iPhone 6 parts have been posted by Weibo user dreamerJimmy. While we’ve seen a number of images showing what appear to be iPhone 6 parts recently, the new pictures are of reasonable quality and give us a good indication of how large the next-genereation iPhone might be in comparison to the current iPhone 5s. The poster of the images also has a good track record for posting pre-release iPhone parts, including some for the iPhone 5 and 5c months before their launch.
In the first image, above, the purported iPhone 6 is clearly larger in height with noticeably thinner bezels around the display to maximize space on the front panel. This is most obvious in the distance between the Home Button and the display which is significantly shorter.
The front-facing FaceTime camera and speaker components are also seemingly closer together with the hole for the camera appearing larger inside. This might point to a significant FaceTime camera update in the next-gen phone – given the popularity of selfies these days, that would not be a surprise.
In the second image, the rear of the device is visible and features the same all-metal enclosure with an antenna construction that we have seen in all of the leaks so far.
As we head towards the fall, the expected timeframe for a new iPhone, we can expect to see more leaks from Apple’s supply chain as the company begins to ramp up production of the parts needed.
What do you think of these iPhone 6 images? Are you a fan of the purported iPhone 6 design based on what we’ve seen so far? Let us know in the comments or get in touch on Twitter: @TiP_AdamO.
