The iPhone 5S has been around for only six months and we have heard already tons of rumors about the upcoming iPhone 6. The most recent ones focus on the phone’s display as well as the camera. An image allegedly showing the iPhone 6’s front panel popped up on French website NowhereElse. The picture presents side by side three panels belonging to the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5S and what is believed to be the iPhone 6.
Apple iPhone 6 – Display Size & Camera Rumors
If the photo is real, we can draw an important conclusion from it. The upcoming iPhone 6 won’t be different in size from the current model, however it appears to have a slightly bigger screen. Since the measurements of the device seem to remain unchanged, there is only one way Apple could achieve that – reduce the bezels as much as possible. In this case, it looks like there are no bezels whatsoever.
Just don’t get too excited just yet, though. Circumstances of how the photo was taken are still unknown which makes it virtually impossible to confirm whether or not it’s legit. There is a strong possibility that the image indeed shows a prototype digitizer for the iPhone 6.
Another explanation is that the panel was just made to look like it could belong to the next iPhone. One detail to support this theory is the location of the home button which appears to be touching the screen. The truth is, however, that at this point we can’t be sure of anything so every bit of unconfirmed information should be taken with a grain of salt.
As for the camera, the latest reports claim that the iPhone 6 will feature an 8-megapixel sensor with an aperture size of f/2.0. If true, you would be able to take much better pictures in low-light conditions. The iPhone 6 is also expected to come with optical image stabilization as well as a CMOS sensor made by Sony.
The recent rumor about the iPhone 6 camera doesn’t coincide with earlier reports which indicated that the device might pack a 10-megapixel camera with a wide f/1.8 aperture and interchangeable lens supposedly manufactured by Japanese company JSR. Whichever materializes in an actual phone, we will be happy to see Apple taking a step towards improving camera experience.
