iPhone 6s front panel allegedly leaks in new photo

According to the rumor-mill, Apple’s suppliers have recently begun volume production of key components for the upcoming iPhones, such as an Apple-designed ‘A9’ processor and chassis. These parts will be soon, or already are, all over the place in Asia so little wonder we’re now starting to see first component leaks.

In a series of new images recently published by Nowhereelse.fr [translated], what’s believed to be the front panel for the iPhone 6s has been revealed. This is the second big leak of the upcoming handset that we’ve seen lately, with what was believed to be the rear panel for the upcoming device finding its way to the surface of the net back at the end of June.

What you see here is allegedly the front panel of the next-generation iPhone refresh. As you can see for yourself, it looks virtually the same as the present-generation iPhone 6’s front panel.

Apple typically keeps the iPhone’s design intact over two generations before making noticeable changes to the phone’s look and feel. Last year’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus refreshes have brought us a rounder, much sleeker design.

Given it’s now an iPhone “S” year, we don’t really anticipate significant changes to the current design until an ‘iPhone 7’ comes along some time in 2016.

According to the informant, there’s no word on whether or not these panels will take advantage of sapphire crystal for the display, something that hasn’t been rumored all that often for this iteration of the device. On top of that, there’s no telling whether or not Force Touch will be included with the device, which is a feature that’s expected to make its iPhone debut later this year after launching with the Apple Watch, and eventually arriving in trackpads in the MacBook lineup.
