Leak claims this is the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 - with a curved screen

This is the front panel of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. Leaked by the notorious and often accurate blogger Sonny Dickson, these photos show the front panel of Apple’s upcoming smartphone, compared to the 4-inch iPhone 5s.

Short of having a screen curved like the LG G Flex, the iPhone seen here has a screen which tapers down at the edges, as can be seen in the second image below.

As has been heavily rumoured for several months, the iPhone 6 will offer a screen 0.7 inches larger than the current model, bringing the phone more in line with the 5-inch handsets offered by Samsung, HTC, Sony and others.

The images show that Apple will offer the iPhone 6 in black and white colour options, and that the Home button and ear speaker both appear in their regular positions. A hole to the left of the speaker suggests the FaceTime camera has been relocated back to where it was on the iPhone 4s.

As well as a larger screen, the iPhone 6 is expected to feature a thinner aluminium button, relocated power button (moving from the top to the side), a more powerful processor, extra sensors and improved cameras.

A 5.5-inch model is also expected to be announced by Apple later this year, and while mockups of this have also appeared online, we are yet to see photos of the phone itself.

Although Dickson has an excellent track record for gaining access to parts of Apple products months before they are announced, he isn't always accurate. Images of a gold iPad featuring Apple's TouchID fingerprint scanner on its Home button never resulted in that product coming to market, and these iPhone 6 components could have been made by a third-party looking for publicity.

Either way, they still give us the clearest indication yet of what a larger iPhone will look like.
