  • Photos of an Assembled iPhone 6 Display Surface in the Far East


    A recent set of photos from the Far East reportedly give an up-close view of an assembled 4.7-inch display bound for Apple’s iPhone 6. The picture is complete with cover glass, mounting structures and flex cables as well. The images from Apple.club.tw are supposedly production versions of both black and white iPhone 6 options, which is a color scheme that is similar to Apple’s current iPhone 5S offerings. These recent photos are the first to show a complete screen unit containing both cover glass and a display.

    What makes the pictures a bit more believable is the fact that they display features consistent with current rumors. The display features trimmed-down side bezels to help accommodate the larger 4.7-inch LCD, while the top and bottom areas are also slightly modified to complement the screen-size as well. With the rear part of the supposed iPhone, the part appears to have a complete display package with backlight installed as seen by the protective film covering most of the panel. What appears to be missing in the pictures is the electromagnetic shielding. It’s likely that the metal plate will be added at a later stage of production but it could also be that Apple has redesigned the internal design and attached the component with the rear chassis (a lot less likely).

    Furthermore, a pair of flex cables are seen sticking out from the top of the display section, a design that is consistent with both current and past iPhone models. The connectors themselves are noticeably different from the iPhone 5S, which is smaller and farther away from the display body.

    The Cupertino California company is set to debut the next-flagship iPhone this Fall. It’s likely that the handset will be unveiled at a special media event on September 9. We’ll have to wait and see what turns out to be true and what doesn’t.

      In think either Apple should keep the connectors inside the phone and change the purple back which is ugly as well. Or a simpler option would be to re title this article.

      Twitter link says nothing of JUST being a display assembly. It's says, "Photos of an Assembled iPhone 6 Surface in the Far East"... Just a ploy to get us to click and then provide the correct title...

      The title did actually read "Photos of an Assembled iPhone 6 Surface in the Far East" at first. "Display" was left out by accident and added after, twitter link wasn't updated though. Sorry about that

      They do look identical to iPhone 5 screens in the pictures. Seems unlikely they would look exactly the same as i5 screens given the 5c and 5s screens did change slightly, but noticeably, form each other.

      It wouldn't make me make a new comment so I just replied to yours. Just a FYI so you don't think I'm specifically targeting you. But yes this whole post is a fake

      The purple "back" is just a protective cover for the back light. It's taken off once assembled.

      This looks like an iPhone 5 screen 😂I repair phones and this has the same frame and connectors. Don't believe everything you see on the internet

      I was hoping to get a newer look. Less bezel, more screen that kind of stuff. Because if there is not a side by side comparison it looks like the ip5

      EDIT: totaly misunderstood the photo I was looking at.

      Anyway, if this is how they are craming a larger screen into hopefully dimensions very close ot the current phone, I could potentially be on board with it. My only issue will be that even now I can barely operte my 5S completely one-handed to the far edge of the screen, and I have big extra large glove-wearing hands. With a screen this big it would make it more difficult to handle one-handed.

      Also i'm betting the current resolution with just be put on a bigger screen with les pixel density, which means no screen improvement for the bigger size, just blown up a bit.

      If that's the case, I'm happy with the 4" screen.

      I'd say there is a very good chance a higher resolution will come with the larger screen.

      I agree! I don't see Apple releasing a phone with bigger screen to just say? Here it is, but not do anything with the resolution smh that's not like Apple! Lol

      Can they simply bump the resolution a bit and make it work and look well with the software? Last time they changed the resolution they have to essentially double it to make it work. I don't think they'll be doubling it again.
