After weeks of Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 6's back side getting all the attention, its front side is getting some love.

New images of the highly rumored iPhone 6 surfaced on Sunday purporting to be the front face and screen assembly of the 4.7-inch version of the upcoming smartphone from Apple. The iPhone 6 images published by Taiwanese blog Apple Club show both the front and backside of the iPhone 6 front glass cover with the display assembly attached.

Fully assembled the iPhone 6 front looks similar to the display glass covers that have leaked over the past months in the lead up to fall. With the display assembly attached, it still retains that distinct Apple iPhone look, but at a much larger size.

While the photos give a closer look into the assembly of the iPhone 6 front cover and display, there isn’t much else that can be derived from the photos. Earlier reports and research notes from analysts claimed that the iPhone 6 will sport a sapphire display. But other rumors claim that the sapphire material may be exclusively used by the rumored 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model.

With both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch model reportedly in production, Apple is expected to reveal the highly anticipated iPhone 6 models at a media event on September 9.

The Apple iPhone 6 is expected to contain a number of new features, including the successor to the A7 processor, the 2GHz A8, 2GB of RAM and an upgraded camera. Prices are expected to start anywhere between $199.99 and $299.99 with a two-year contract. Off-contract, the 4.7-inch model may cost around $600, while analysts expect the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 to cost $700.
