iPhone 6 components are leaking left and right, with French online publication iPhonote having picked up new images from Weibo that allegedly show the front glass panel and the rear metal shell of the upcoming 4.7-inch new iPhone – earlier on Friday, pictures of the same rear shell and purported A8 chip were also shared online.

The newly leaked images are consistent with what previous leaks have revealed, telling basically the same new design story for the iPhone 6. The handset is expected to offer a bigger display (and, thus, a bigger body) and a thinner profile than its predecessors. These new leaked images also show the same redesigned volume buttons – or at least cutouts for them – and a relocated power button that’s present on the right side of the device rather than on top of it.

Finally, the pictures show in great detail the front glass panel that’s supposed to cover the screen of the iPhone 6, although it’s not clear what material it’s made of. The front panel has curved edges, as previously reported, and features the same cutouts for Home button, front camera and speaker, and sensors, as seen in previously leaked images. An Apple logo on the back of the glass cover can also be clearly seen in some shots.

Some of the leaked iPhone 6 images published by iPhonote follow below, with more available at the source link.
