    This picture appeared on the Chinese blog site Sino Weibo. Could it be the new 4.7" iPhone 6 front panel? Check out the accompanying article.

    Actually, that looks more like the front display for the 5.5" phablet. Some of these leaks are starting to look like leaks. Notice in the bottom right in the photo there are other front displays laid out. I'll be glad when Apple makes their big introduction!

    Can't read the article. I got a 404 error. Do you think they took it down? Too much truth revealing the new iPhone 6?! LOL!

    @Ledsteplin I think that could be the 4.7" display. It just looks huge. The iPhone 5/5s itself corner to corner is about 5" and that iPhone 5/5s in the picture corner to corner is bigger than the middle where the screen would be on the iPhone 6, so that display could not be 5.5".

    IMHO I think and it appears to be the 4.7" leak! YAY!

    This is exciting! It's starting to heat up!

    There is another picture out there. I can't wait for a larger iPhone. It is the one thing that I miss the most from using my HTC One.

    A possible 5.1" screen?

    I want this. Bad.

    I kept looking at this comparing the two. It's an optical illusion. Notice the difference in the size of the two thumbs. The front display is held closer to the camera. Or so it seems.

    Its fake because the display frame is not till the edge. There is huge distance between the inner display and the edge.

    Has Apple said the display screen on the new iPhone 6 would extend from edge to edge?

    Apple has not yet revealed but there are rumors of edge to edge screen for ip6. And i have an intuition its going to be the same because Apple always come out with something innovative.

    Edge-to-edge screen = easily chipped. And cases would then cover part of the screen. I doubt that rumor.

    My HTC One had edge-to-edge glass. No problems there. Even had a nice case on it. The very edge of the glass acts as a bezel.

    You're basing your assertion of "fake" solely on the rumors and artist's renderings of the past few months. The iPhone 6 will most likely be released for sale in September. Apple will sell millions right off the bat. So it stands to reason that some of these leaks we're seeing from the Chinese now may be credible. They manufacture many of the parts, and they're doing it now. So a leaked photo here and there is bound to happen. I don't see an edge to edge screen. That looks good in concept, but would not work. It would be a case maker's nightmare.

    Edge to edge glass is not the same as edge to edge screen. Would not there have to be a little bit of bezel?

    I never said it was, Led. But the risk of cracking the glass would remain the same.

    If these cases are to fit the iPhone 6, the power button would be moved to the side for easier one-handed operation (such as it is).

    And everybody, please remember that this is all just speculation. We won't know anything for sure until Apple unveils the new iPhone.
