Video shows front panel measurement for the Apple iPhone 6

Video shows front panel measurement for the Apple iPhone 6
Having sleepless nights worrying about the size of the screen on the Apple iPhone 6? Well, you might be able to get some sleep at last. A video posted on Monday, shows a diagonal screen measurement of 4.7 inches using a front panel allegedly from the next iteration of the iPhone.
The size of the display is 4.1 inches x 2.36 inches, which will make the iPhone 6 the largest model in the line.

Of course, we also expect Apple to quickly top the iPhone 6 with the phablet version of the phone, which will supposedly unleash a 5.5 inch screen on the world. Despite some reports that both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone phablet will launch at the same time, it would appear that the iPhone 6 is currently ahead when it comes to production.

If life has let you down to the point where you really can't believe anything but what your eyes tell you, check out the video below. Of course, we still have to grab for that grain of salt since we can't vouch for the authenticity of the panel being measured.

Robots with their lame comment in 3,2,1......they be like, gorilla glass is better. Well, the iphone already uses gorilla glass. As far as we know, this is gorilla glass as well. The 5.5 is only rumored to get sapphire.

Stop the fight guys. I worked at a phone shop where we repair phones. Costumers always come in with either a broken iphone screen (including broken backpanel) or a broken Samsung (galaxy model) screen. From S3 all the way to S5 and from 3s to 5s. Apple and Samsung make lots of profit from the poor costumers because they break after the slightest drop. I have only seen 1 Xperia z1 that was totally busted, cuz the woman drove over her phone with her own car. Yeah it sounds bull- but she really did. Also had 1 broken Nexus come into the shop, dude dropped it while he was calling. The lowerpart of the lcd was busted. So please guys. Don't fight over Apple's screen's and android's (yea samsung uses gorrila glass, atleast, they say they do) because they both are crap in this case.

I also think that Dragontrail glass is better than Gorilla glass.

Gorilla Glass is better. (Sorry I'm late, nctx77. I had a prior obligation.)

LG G Flex uses Gorilla Glass and it resist being bent from curved to flat without cracking.

Pretty much :D I was pretty excited about the Z2's rumor though. Now owning the Z2, I have no regret about this phone. Just wish there are more cases for it.

The new marketing these days is about leaking every piece and bits of the phone down to the chip set.

How many of these screen size leaks for the iPhone 6 are we going to have? Seriously. This is getting out of hand. It's been 4.7" consistently for the last month. We get it.

I wonder how Apple is going to play off the bump in screen size. Are they going to admit to following the trend, or are they going to do an entire video segment during the event showing how this is the best screen size ever and how revolutionary it is? Can't wait. Seriously though, I like what Apple's been doing lately. I wish they were less gaudy, but they make good products. I just hope that they will modify the homescreen in some way with the final release of iOS 8 so we don't just have a wall of icons.
