If Apple sticks with the same launch schedule it’s employed in recent years, we’re probably less than two months away from the debut of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. If Apple hopes to have decent stock ready in time for the phone’s arrival, we’d expect to see it really get production underway in a big way soon (well, if not already), and that’s generally what we’ve been hearing. Leaks have already brought us some possible pics of iPhone 6S internals, as well as the phone’s rear panel, but we haven’t gotten a similar look at the phone’s front. This evening, that opportunity may have just arrived, but truth be told, there’s not a lot to see here.
Really, that’s not at all surprising, especially considering how we’re not expecting any kind of design overhaul – this is an S-generation iPhone, after all. And while the phone should get an SoC bump and some other hardware upgrades, the fact that this front panel is the spitting image of the current iPhone 6 panel isn’t anything unexpected.
That may make these pics a little less interesting than shots of other iPhone 6S components would be – parts that actually differentiate themselves from what’s currently available. We also don’t see any of the LCD itself, nor evidence in favor of Touch ID technology coming to the smartphone; the source doesn’t even offer any insight into the choice of materials for this glass (for you sapphire hold-outs). Still, we’ll take what we can get, and if this really is the real deal, we’re hopeful that some more noteworthy pics will be on their way soon.
