If you have been keeping an eye on iPhone 6 rumors you will know very well that Apple is expected to release two models this year, one with a 4.7-inch display and one with a gigantic 5.5-inch display. This would be the first time that the iPhone enters phablet category and analysts expect that this increase in display size might spark a rise in upgrades from potential customers who have been holding out. We haven’t actually seen these new iPhones in the flesh but a purported LCD component of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 has leaked online.
The photo comes from Sonny Dickson, a source who accurately leaked the iPhone 5c and Retina iPad mini shells last year. Dickson claims that this LCD component is for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 and places a ruler to confirm the diagonal measurement of the component, which is approximately 14cm or 5.51181-inches.
Granted that this doesn’t give us a peek at how the display would actually look but then again there’s never a dull moment in the rumor mill as far as new Apple products are concerned.
The iPhone 6 is expected to be thinner than its predecessor and may also come with subtle design changes. Apple is believed to offer it in the same color options that are being offered with the iPhone 5s right now. Some analysts claim that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 might even be priced higher than its predecessors but research has found that most of the customers are willing to absorb that increase.
