An image showing the purported digitizer of the iPhone 6 seems to reveal the size of at least one upcoming iPhone version, although the image can’t be confirmed yet. The photos first appeared on Chinese forum WeiPhone, but it’s not clear exactly how the original poster obtained the images.

The pictures seem to show the digitizer of an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 side by side, with the latter suggesting the new iPhone 6 will be about the same size as the iPhone 5, even though it may sport a bigger display. To achieve this, Apple may completely remove the side bezels of the phone, and vertically increase the size of the screen as well, assuming the image is accurate.

NowhereElse notes that the person that took the pictures may have easily tampered with the glass to make it look like a display of a next-gen iPhone. The placement of the home button seems to rather odd as well. At the same time, this could be one of the prototype digitizer for the iPhone 6, the company may have ordered from suppliers.

Apple has been rumored to launch at least two new iPhone models this year, with bigger displays than the iPhone 5s’ 4-inch screen. The company is also said to consider using sapphire glass for its iPhone 6.

Images showing the alleged iPhone 6 component follow below.
