If you were wondering what a purported image of the new front panel to the next-gen iPhone might look like, it goes a bit like this:
According to French web site Nowhereelse.fr, the front panel image was shared by a source close to the story who also said that the iPhone parts are currently in production and ready to be shipped to iPhone 6s assembly lines for use in the Silver and Gold iPhone 6s.
As an “S” upgrade, the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus are not expected to feature physical design changes, so as is expected, the front panels said to be for the iPhone 6s look identical to front panels for the iPhone 6. Previous iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus part leaks have also confirmed that the casings for the device carry the same design as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but there may be small design improvements and material changes to bolster strength and durability.
The source was apparently unable to confirm whether the panel included sapphire crystal or Force Touch support. The next-gen iPhone has been rumored to be a candidate for sapphire integration, but seems more likely to continue using Gorilla Glass.
Along with Force Touch, the next-generation iPhones are rumored to include an improved 12-megapixel camera, an A9 processor, better Touch ID support, 2GB RAM, and a new rose gold color option.
Mass production of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is rumored to starting this month, with early production having started in late June.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
