Leak shows alleged backlight for iPhone 6 display

updated 03:05 pm EDT, Fri May 23, 2014

Matched to 4.7-inch model

Images of what's claimed to be a backlighting panel for the iPhone 6 have appeared on Chinese microblogging site Weibo, reports say. The authenticity of the part is unsure, but it does resemble the backlight for the iPhone 5s. One difference is a relocated flex connector with modified pins, but it's common for Apple to change connectors to fit new circuit designs.

The panel is said to be for a 4.7-inch iPhone, and not Apple's rumored but still largely unseen 5.5-inch device. Multiple reports have claimed that the latter is delayed though, and might not ship until November or even 2015. The 4.7-inch phone is expected to be launched in September or October.

If they follow historical trends, parts leaks are likely to increase as the iPhone 6 goes into full-scale production. In many cases so far, leaks have revolved around molds and schematics instead of final components.

    Amazing isn't it...why we never hear about leaks of Samsung next gen devices yet those from Apple are religiously created and shared at those special times of the year. Hmm.

    "why we never hear about leaks of Samsung next gen devices"

    Samsung leaks are found in every single Apple leak or product introduction. It is just that Samsung uses those 'leaks' to design their next device.
