4.7-inch iPhone 6 backlight panel reportedly seen in new photos

“While there have been a multitude of iPhone 6 mockups and case leaks, actual parts said to be from the iPhone 6 have thus far been in short supply,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors. “We’ve seen what might be the front panel of the device along with possible batteries and a manufacturing mold used for creating the phone’s chassis.”

“What is said to be a backlight panel for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 has now appeared on Chinese Twitter-like site Weibo (via Nowhereelse.fr),” Clover reports. “There is no way to verify the legitimacy of the images, but the backlight design does appear similar to the backlight panel of the iPhone 5s and the 5c, with a few small differences — the connector has been relocated and the pins themselves have a different design.”

Clover reports, “While today’s part appears to be for the 4.7-inch iPhone, Apple is expected to release the iPhone in two sizes: the aforementioned 4.7-inch version and a larger 5.5-inch version. ”

    1. Nothing like just making stuff up and then reacting to it.

      “They” said no such thing. Many said they thought it was a terrible idea. Many said it was a great idea, and that it was way overdue.

          1. Great question, Strooby.

            My post translates to:
            A few people on this site said they thought it was a terrible idea. A few people on this site said it was a great idea, and that it was way overdue.

            What does your “many” translate to, Steve?

            1. We’re not apologists for fanboys. We just don’t like your inaccurate, overblown, petulant nonsense. What’s your next post going to be — “nyah, nyah!”

    1. Similar to what Sean said just above…

      Nothing like just making stuff up and then gloating about it (in a very immature manner).
      Many fans of Apple said they thought a large phone was a terrible idea. And many other fans said it was a great idea, and that it was way overdue.
