Images of the smaller iteration of the iPhone 6’s display have shown up online, confirming some of what we know about the handset and adding a hint of extra gen we’d yet to come across.

Sourced by leak specialist Sonny Dickson, the snaps of the black and white versions of the screen confirm that the junior edition of the iPhone 6 will pack a 4.7-inch display, compared with the current-gen's four-inch panel.

The curved edges on show in the images are a further sign that a much-rumoured, iPhone 3GS-referencing redesign is on the cards too.

Other than that it’s notable that the aperture for the front-facing camera, much like the phone's on-off button, has relocated.

Instead of being directly above the speaker, it’s now square to the left. Those of you with long memories and obsessive recall for Apple kit will remember that’s where it was on the iPhone 4.

The 4.7 edition of the phone (you can see what a difference the size upgrade will make in the photo below) will purportedly be accompanied on shop shelves by a whopping 5.5-inch model.

Aside from the size difference that qualifies it as Apple’s first-ever phablet, the pricier 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is also rumoured to pack image stabilisation technology that's absent from the entry-level, smaller option.

Both phones will, however, purportedly land at the same time on September 19th, run the same iOS 8 software and feature a more durable version of Apple’s fingerprint security scanner, Touch ID.
