Claimed photos showing fully assembled iPhone 6 faceplate surface

A Taiwanese blog has posted a series of images that allegedly picture fully assembled black and white faceplate options for a rumored 4.7-inch iPhone 6 variant.

The images offer perhaps the best depiction of the upcoming Apple handset thus far. The fully assembled 4.7-inch panel is shown off along with flex cables, mounting structures and cover glass.

As a quick reminder, the iPhone 6 should be unveiled alongside its bigger 5.5-inch counterpart at a media event on September 9.

Earlier this morning, we published a treasure trove of leaked part images that seemingly hint at the embedded Apple logo on the back, a protruding iPod touch-style rear camera and the slightly recessed volume button cutouts along the edges…

According to Taiwanese blog Apple.club [Google Translate], via AppleInsider, the images depict notably skinnier side bezels of the claimed 4.7-inch display part, speculated to allow for one-handed use.

For the most part, these new shots largely match up with prior leaks of assumed iPhone 6 components. The front panel also shows holes for the front-facing camera and the ambient light sensor.

What you can’t possibly glean from these images is whether the display component uses Corning’s Gorilla Glass or a rumored sapphire-made cover glass.

Both black and white faceplates, along with the previously leaked components like a gold SIM card tray, support the theory that the iPhone 6 will come in same color options as the current iPhone 5s generation.

On the back, there’s a purported display package complete with backlight installed. The protective film is covering most of the panel and you can clearly see the part’s QR code and serial number.

Other takeaways: the nicely rounded edges and a cutout for the Touch ID home button.

AppleInsider explains:

Missing is the usual electromagnetic shielding that has in the past been attached directly to the faceplate. It is possible that the metal plate will be added on during a later stage of production, or Apple may have rejiggered the phone’s internal design to marry the component with the rear chassis.

The new iPhones are expected to come in 4.7 and 5.5-inch varieties, featuring an all-new design with an even thinner appearance, running an Apple-designed A8 chip said to be clocked at 2GHz or more per core and likely sporting a 13-megapixel Sony-made camera with optical image stabilization.

      I have been waiting three yrears for this.(the last iphone i bougth was the 4S)
      But after seeing this leaks with HUGE bezels and ugly bands ,i am starting to regret it.
      Lets all hope the real phone hasn’t been leaked yet

        I also waited and waited. Owned a 3, 3g, 4 and 4s. Stopped after 4s because there was no need to upgrade to 5 or 5s. After seeing potential size and slight upgrades of the same old thing and deciding I was not going to JB my next phone I gave up 4 weeks ago. Got on Craigslist and bought a samsung note 3 for $320 and I have never loved a phone so much. Its a mini computer with a beautiful screen. Amazing! The customization of Android is unreal. My battery is kick as and its removable. Just bought a 64 micro sd card which also goes into my surface pro 3. It never ends! No more billion apps for work around. Thought the biggest thing I was giving up was movie box which I use with my apple TV. Well guess what. The movie box guys have an android version called showbox. You go to the movie box site and download the apk and that’s it. No jailbreaking bull anymore. No more unstable iphone. Sent my ipad 2 to my mom last week. Posting my 4s on CL. Keeping ipad air and Apple TV for now. My son has numerous ipad so…..slowly phasing Apple out. The next tablet I buy aside from my new surface pro 3 will be an android.

        There are so many great phones out there that offer more. If you come to this site it’s because you want more from your phone so why not just move on? I have no regrets.

        IPhone 4s,Htc one x ,htc one(m7),htc one (m8) ,samsung galxy note 3,samsung galaxy s5 ,LG G3 and my favourite the Nexus 5.
        I don’t buy sony phones because they are not available in my counrty .

  • A’s Network

    • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

      Well what were you expecting? A stretched 4 or 3Gs plate ha.

    • Tim Farris

    • GuyWithTheThings

      You never fail to framboogle me.

  • john diaz

    Looks like an iPhone 5, come on apple show something different this time, how many years do people have to wait to see change!.

    • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

      It will be different, the glass is actually curved this time around. Other then the screen being bigger it will look different. Also it seems they moved the camera back to the side of the ear speaker assuming to make the top thinner.

    • iBanks

      What more are you looking for in an front panel? It’s the front panel.

  • Mohammed

    Here .
    Choose your favorite claimed “IPhone 6 front panel”
    Too much “front panel” for 1 device .

    • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

      Ill stick to the one that actually has the LCD and digitizer attached to it. Not to mention the plastic frame for the black and white.

      • Mohammed

        Don’t get me wrong,i am not trying to be a jerk.
        What i am trying to say is that there no telling which of the leaks on the internet are true and which of them are wrong.
        You should wait for the real deal. :)
        Hoefully it looks something like this with out the huge ugly white bands .

      • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

        I know where your coming from but from years of past experience I can assure you that these parts are most genuine. They actually are have the same glass that was shown a few weeks ago just now they have the LCD and digitizer attached. If you look closely at the black one you can see the edge is curved all the way around.

      • Jonathan

        Turns out this “leak” was a fake. But this is my favorite design as well and I love every single stink’n thing about this one.

  • Freddy Born

    no new design then

  • Dan

    not impressed so far, seeing no reason to upgrade from 5S

  • Tommy Gumbs

    It looks like an iPhone. Yay

  • Mohammed

    While the bottom bezels are ok considering the home button.
    The top and side bezels are so outdated .
    Come on its 2014 ,we need bezel free experience now.

  • Brzfld
