4.7-inch iPhone 6 screen glass images leak out: black and white models compared

4.7-inch iPhone 6 screen glass images leak out: black and white models compared
The upcoming iPhone 6 is said to enter mass production in July, and just days before that timeframe, we’re seeing an influx of leaks. This one in particular is our first sighting of the supposed screen glass of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, and you can see very clearly that there is just a slight curve around the edges. While earlier rumors have speculated that we might see a curved screen on the iPhone 6, this latest leak shows that the curve might be a very subtle one.

Such supposed tapered edges of the next iPhone should make it easier to slide your finger from the edge of the display. Swipe gestures are already in use since iOS 7 in first-party apps like Safari where swiping from the left brings you back a page in the browser, but we can imagine this new display could allow for more proliferate use of gestures. That’s nothing, but a guess, though.

This leak is one more evidence that Apple could indeed start mass production of the iPhone 6 in July

So far, the 4.7” iPhone 6 is said to come with a higher resolution (likely 960 x 1704 pixels), and a brand new Apple A8 chip. Moreover, expectations are high for the camera in the iPhone 6. KGI Securities posted a note saying that while only the 5.5” iPhone 6 is expected to feature optical image stabilization (OIS), the 4.7” model will also benefit from a new type of voice call motor (VCM) that will allow it to lock focus quicker and also save power.

Apple is also expected to introduce new sensors, and barometer in particular is named as the most likely candidate. As for the oft-rumored sturdier, sapphire glass cover, it’s a feature said to be reserved for the 5.5” iPhone 6.

Update: We've added a full gallery of the leaked cover glass.

Its not a disapointment..for majority of iphone users cauz The front panel makes it class apart from other phones.

Secondly all companies ( eg. Samsun) prefer keeping the front pannel simmilar to avoid pattent trolls..

Just like Porsche, BMW, Volvo, etc. Go somewhere, hater. Again, people like you make me NOT want to be apart of the Android community.

ignorant, iPhone 6 is the most redesigned device since the 3gs. You should ask samsung to abandon cheap plastic and copying.

You really shouldn't allow people to alter your perspective on a piece of technology that you may or may not be interested in, especially in comment fields of articles. If you really want a serious perspective from the android community visit Xda developers

+1
Also funny that the users who complain about iPhone being the same thing over and over again, never gonna buy an iPhone anyway.

Though I see huge evolution between different year models of cars. They can keep the iconic looks while still make it look way different. Not in iPhones.

Dude a car & a phone. Really?!? You are comparing something that becomes a classic in 20+ years to something you throw out in less that 2.

C'Mon... REALLY?!? lolololololololololololololololol

I want something different from Apple cause that moves tech forward. It's to the point that Apple is now second fiddle & it's really Android who is pushing the mobile world. HTC vs Samsung vs Sony vs LG vs Motorola...

Apple... meh!!! If Apple would provide something different then we all win cause now there is new & original stuff to try to topple...

you stop being ignorant and enjoy your glass screen. plastic makes the phone affordable and can remove your battery unlike the iPhone

Top and bottom bezels looks big even HTC One with front facing speakers have smaller bezels.

So tell apple how they're supposed to make the bottom bezel smaller but still include the home button?

You see it is not my problem, it is Apple's problem so Apple should solve this quest not I, I just tell what I see. :)

Anyway, one of solutions is to install more oblong shape fingerprint scanner instead of circular shape. Unless Apple can't do that, but then again it is not my problem, I just tell what I see and I see that bezels looks big. :)

Change the home button to a different shape like a long rectangular one.... oh wait...

Bull$**t! Look at where the screen starts on the m8 and look at the bottom. The bezel is huge. You could two and a half home buttons in there.

Obviously that shapely design has issues…awkward.

i agree completely, in one m8, the bottom bezel is too big. the place where the htc logo is, let alone the onscreen buttons, which take additional space.

and yes, in doing that, ruin the whole fingerprint scanner.

Oblong shaped fingerprint scanner would be as high as a circular one, since a fingerprint scanner that can scan in 1 go instead the need of swiping it, is more reliable.

Obviously I don't care about either iPhone or Galaxy S line :P

Not really. They'll just have to find a fingerprint scanner in the form factor. However, tell Apple don't ever get rid of the round home screen.
