Earlier today, we showed you a leaked photo that shows what appears to be an “iPhone 6” front panel next to the 4-inch display of an iPhone 5s. Steven from East Coast Pixels — makers of the iOS photo editing app PhotoToaster — took a closer look at the alleged Apple part in an effort to determine its dimensions.
Using the iPhone 5s on the left as a comparison, the part appears to show an iPhone display with a 5.07-inch diagonal measurement, or nearly 5.1 inches. It also has a 16-to-9 aspect ratio, which would be identical to the ratio found on the current iPhone 4-inch display.
However, an iPhone screen size just shy of 5.1 inches does not align with recent rumored display sizes for Apple’s next-generation handset. Well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities said in a research note last week that he believes Apple’s 2014 iPhone models will come in two screen sizes of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches.
Even if the front panel is not legit, the photo offers a real life example of what a 5.5-inch iPhone compares to the existing models. For iPhone 6 concepts, check out these posts.
