In the past few months, we've been seeing a ton of alleged iPhone 6 part leaks. One of the more notable ones has been the rear shell, which seems to be made of aluminum and has vast amounts of controversy throughout the blogosphere.

One thing that folks around the web have been talking about was the round cutout for the iPhone 6's LED flash. As we all know, with the iPhone 5S, Apple took the route of adding the True Tone, dual-LED flash to the rear of the device. True Tone allowed for more precise photos with details to skin color and such. However, the leaks show that the iPhone 6 seems to revert back to the round LED flash cutout, instead of the iPhone 5S's pill-shape.

Today, French blog Nowhereelse.fr posted an image of what looks to be the LED flash component for the iPhone 6. What's interesting about this part leaks is that it shows Apple has engineered a way to implement True Tone into a round shape, instead of the pill.

Via MacRumors:
"This round flash module is integrated into a purported iPhone 6 flex cable that contains several arms with a power button, a logic board connector, a microphone, and the round True Tone flash. The cable had been seen in a previous leak late last month, but only from the rear where the flash itself was not visible."

It's pretty crazy that our favorite fruit company has figured out a way to fit such a space-hoarding technology into even smaller form. Although this seems like great news for aesthetics, some users have claimed that True Tone flash doesn't actually improve photo quality.

We're just going to have to see what Apple has to say about it come September 9th.
