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.

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.

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

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..

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.

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...

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.

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

3. gregoryyy3 unregistered

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. :)

36. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

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.

Mybe you are right but then what about upper bezel? :)

42. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Agreed, that could be a bit smaller. Although I do think the side bezels are less than they used to be.

"Although I do think the side bezels are less than they used to be." Idk, to me they look the same. But with upper bezel Apple should do something of course if this leak is legit.

Um have you read all the problems with it... It's not as reliable as you think...

54. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Not 100% reliable, but more reliable than for instance Samsung's solution.

A more oblong home button would make the fingerprint scanner as disastrous as that on the S5. Why iPhone's scanner works so well is because it can read the print regardless of finger orientation. With a non-circular scanner, it could either cause problems scanning, or be easily manipulated. In addition, why should apple remove their home button or change it's shape? That's the icon of their devices, as are the rectangular buttons on samsung devices.

Probably I should agree with you but talking about upper bezel, Apple should do something about that.

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