LCD backlight panel is the latest leaked part from the Apple iPhone 6

LCD backlight panel is the latest leaked part from the Apple iPhone 6
Out of China (via France) comes the latest Apple iPhone 6 leak. This time, it is the LCD backlight panel that has been photographed. And while there is no way to prove that it is genuine, we should point out that it does resemble the same part used on the Apple iPhone 5s. There are some changes of course, with the length and different position of the connector cable proving that the leaked backlight panel did not come from an Apple iPhone 5s, and pawned off as something new.

The leaked LCD backlight panel really doesn't help us determine the resolution on the new model's 4.7 inch screen, which has been rumored to be 960 x 1704. That would result in a pixel density of 416ppi for the iPhone 6, the highest such reading in the history of the iconic smartphone. Another report suggests that the new iPhone will feature a resolution of 750 x 1334. As a comparison, the Apple iPhone 5s screen has a resolution of  640 x 1136. There is some talk that Apple is still testing out which resolution to use for its next handset.

You can check out pictures of the leaked LCD backlight panel, including a comparison between the leaked panel and one from an iPhone 5s, by clicking on the slideshow below.

This simply means the new iphone will bump the processor clock speed and core number in order to keep iOS as fluid and coherent as it already is, for a larger screen size. I am beginning to see iOS7 become less responsive and drop frames every now and then on the older devices running it. Like my iPad Mini.

Who cares, it's no 5 inch and beyond super amoled screen like the S5 has baby. Or dare I say the QHD screen of the S5 Prime if and when it comes out!! LCD can't compete with super amoled :)

I didn't mention iPhone at all. I talk about OLED vs LCD technology. OLED based screens may have a future but for today OLED based screens has a lot of and very important (essential) problems and until they are not solved OLED is not bad but not better than LCD.

IPS has near-180 deg viewing angles, allows for brighter display, and shows more ACCURATE COLORS (I never said vibrant). Also, LCD usually have a longer lifespan. You are such a troll.

I have, and I think the latest AMOLED tech are the best so far IMO. But opinion =/= fact. So it must be preference then.

Exactly, opinion =/= fact and technical facts says that OLED based screens are still not better than LCD based screens.

Hello, I'm newly registered and have used many different phones and os's (iOS, Android, and Windows). Call me crazy, but I like to try out the different phones and the software that comes with them. Regarding your comment - I bought an S5 this past Friday in order to try out in lieu of my iPhone 5S. In my own opinion, the screen of the S5 is very nice, but so is that of the iPhone 5S. They are both nice, and just "different" in terms of the look. I could use either one of them for a long period of time (I had a Note 3 for many months and enjoyed it). However, my enjoyment of the the screen quality (regardless of type) is directly related to the quality of the hardware and os. I have just reactivated my iPhone and will be returning my Galaxy S5. For some reason, my S5 was very slow and laggy, when compared to my experience on the iPhone (and my Nokia Lumia as well). I'm not sure why this was the case given the specs of the S5. My Note 3 ran very well and was super smooth (which is why I had it for so long). Just my thoughts on it all...(and only my opinion).

Please... make it stop. No more haruspicy articles based on iPhone entrails. "In the religion of Ancient Rome, a haruspex was a person trained to practice a form of divination called haruspicy, the inspection of the entrails."

Think of technology leaks like masturbating to celebrity porn. You KNOW that's not Miley Cyrus - she obviously has a bigger ass in this movie - but still you can get off for a few minutes.

These are not leaks but pure sales marketing to get talk about the iPhone 6 which is way behind the rest at this point in the game. Yahoo for an extra row of app icons. Not a hater here as I'm typing this on my beloved, but very blah iPad. I guess I just expected more.

Agree, there is truth in your words. It could be a part of marketing.

Exactly right. All these "leaks" are nothing more than backchannel marketing, something that has become one of the worst things about the mobile industry, IMO.

It is really the tiny little screws that make all the difference in phone design these days. There is no contest -- Apple is the very best at screwing.

Samsung leaks s**t out of their anus before robbing a small company of their ideas... a daily routine since 1970.
