Images of 5.5 inch screen part for iPhone 6 leaked

More images relating to the rumored iPhone 6 have been leaked following prior leaks by the same person. Sonny Dickson, the man who posted leaked images of the backplate, which features colors similar to the 'Champaign' iPhone 5S as well as different screen sizes on his Twitter, has recently given more images to 9to5Mac. The new pictures show the screen component for the unconfirmed device.

The screen measures around 14cm diagonally, which is just about 5.5 inches. Even though these pictures don't give us much information, it does show that Apple is having the display, which is reportedly being manufactured by Japan Displays Inc., for the iPhone 6 being made as we speak. Due to the iPhone 6 having a larger screen, it is rumored that the unannounced smartphone could cost up to $100 more than previous models.

Apple has been trying to crack down on leaks recently, but it seems to be failing because of the plethora of information that has been streaming out lately. There have been numerous leaks concerning the smartphone such as the specs, as well as changes made to the button layout, which has been the same since the release of the very first iPhone back in 2007.

A photo of some bogus rectangular object with a ruler attached is enough in the Apple world to be a "HOT" news item. Yup. That seems really normal.

cmon its a purple piece of paper with a white piece of paper taped to the other side...ummm who gives a #$%^? Really?

I'm glad to know that I could utilize Neowin as a news outlet for my explorations in the measuring of things that could be considered to be of smartphone part dimensions.

I believe you missed his point.

I think the new iPhone with the bigger screen will be a huge hit this year. I think a lot of people moved to Android for the bigger screen but with all the iOS improvements and the bigger screens a lot of people will happily come back. It will be a huge year for the iPhone.

It might help keep people from jumping ship to Android, but I'm not sure if it's going to make people drop their Androids to get back to iOS. Only thing that would do that is if they had a miserable experience with their Android.

Only $100 more? I was hoping to pay a 4 figure sum for the new innovative Apple phone.

Please send me the 4 figure payment to me and I handle the shipment of the device as soon as it available.... by FedEx overnight, early delivery.. and no additional shipping costs...

I would like to have the IPhone 6 with 128 GB shipped overnight to UK than.

Since when was an iPhone a 4 figure sum phone?

Actually, since the iPhone5s costs €899 out right here but €200 on a two year contract you will pay the 4 figure sum for it on that contract. €200 up front and the payment plan is around €50 a month which includes 100 txts and 100 minutes.

That's why I got rid of mine. I felt the iPhone 5 was to narrow, so I was going to upgrade to the 5S from my 4S but still disappointed. Once I got my Nexus 5, I had an extra Nexus 5 (because I bought one in person and Google said it was to late to cancel - ordered the same day I bought in person), so I traded it for the Note 3 and the wife fell in love with it and we sold her iPhone 5.

Don't get me wrong, I like Apple, but not the phone anymore.

About time they started using bigger sizes. Those tiny iPhones were out of touch with consumer trends.
I find myself always prefering the small form factor of the 3.5" screen... fits the hand and thumb can move from corner to corner without readjusting grip to accommodate.

The iPhone 5 screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio like most phones.

Or did you mean the entire body of the iPhone was too narrow?

Entire body.

Would it have been that hard to get a ruler with inches on? And before you say it could be Europe, it's probably not and we still use imperial measurements for the odd thing. Screen sizes for example.

i think only 2 countries in the world use imperial now, US and Belize.

Most of the world uses the metric system, in fact only 3 countries in the world use the imperial system last I checked.

Better question would be, is it that hard to convert from cm, or find a ruler with inches on it.

My toilet paper is about 5.5 inches. Should I take a picture while I'm measuring it and then call it the all new iPhone shipping package paper wrap?

Give me the rights to report on it :p

If it's not samsung it has to be inferior. Brainless Fandroid logic...

It's a good thing that we, the windows users, have so far escaped their wrath!

Every platform has its fanboys, we have some pretty bad Windows ones here at Neowin.
