Apple’s incoming iPhone 6 smartphone has been featured so far in a variety of leaks that have revealed many details about the unreleased device – though Apple has yet to confirm any of them. Following the plethora of reports showing images of the device’s front panel, Taiwanese publication has posted images showing the same component, but, this time around, coupled with the actual display and other display-related internal parts.

FROM EARLIER: Watch Apple fans get tricked into thinking a fake iPhone 6 is the most amazing device ever

Previous iPhone 6 front panel leaks only featured the thin, and reportedly extremely durable, cover glass that some have claimed will be made from sapphire glass.

The display appears to be bigger than the iPhone 5s’s screen, and it’s likely made for the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6.

As MacRumors points out, the front panel features the same design elements revealed in previous leaks, including a thinner bezel, rounded edges, and cutouts for the Touch ID, the front-facing camera and the ambient light sensor.

Flex cables can also be spotted in the available images, sporting  a different design than the iPhone 5s’s display flex cables and clearly visible Apple logos. An Apple logo can also be spotted internally next to a QR code on the right side of the front speaker. The appearance of an Apple logo on internal components and cables is certainly puzzling considering that such components lack Apple logos in previous iPhone models. An Apple logo is present internally only on the iPhones A-series chip, as revealed by previous teardowns.

Images showing this newly leaked iPhone 6 display assembly, for both black and white iPhone 6 models, follow below.
