Is This an iPhone 5S Display Assembly During Production? [PIC]


Following several reports about iPhone 5S components, a Chinese microblogging site, Sina Weibo (login required), has posted an image showing what they claim to be the display assemblies for the iPhone 5S (via MacRumors).

The small image seems to be in line with earlier image leaks showing the iPhone 5S display assembly, as the redesigned flex cable connectors — which are reportedly part of a yet unreleased iPhone — are clearly visible on the above picture.

Also, the image suggests that the mass production of the Phone 5S display assemblies have already started, reinforcing earlier rumours claiming the next-generation iPhone display will hit mass production as early as this month. This could also suggest that the highly anticipated handset will be available earlier than expected, but as iOS 7 will only reach customers this fall, we can expect the handset alongside the launch of Apple’s redesigned mobile OS.

As of now, we could see image leaks of an iPhone 5S prototype, suggesting that Apple will opt for an A7 chip alongside a larger battery. If the rumours are correct, the next-generation handset will feature a 12 MP camera, with dual-LED flash.

    Is it jsut me or does it look wider? Probably just the angle.

  • canadan

    haha, I was just hoping, I mean thinking the same. Also, although there is light reflection, are the home buttons the same? Hard to tell on that pic

  • wstoneman

    Yeah I was thinking the same about the home buttons. Maybe its the stupid finger print senson…

    It’s the protective film on the screen.

    The reflection is from the protective film, you can see the tabs of it. And that’s just the hole for the home button. The physical home button is not attached to the screen, as it is a separate part that resides on the mechanism underneath the screen.

    To me they look like two different screens. like one is iphone 5 and the other is wider. but again might just be the angle of the picture.
