Coming from AppleInsider, here's a picture from Chinese smartphone repair company ElekWorld which shows newly stocked parts, including purported "iPhone 6" power flex cables with round multi-colored flash assemblies. Coming in both 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variations, both cables feature what appears to be a dual-LED flash assembly with "cool" and "warm" tints,.

Further, the round flash lines up with a series of purportedly leaked iPhone 6 rear shells, each featuring a round hole for the rear camera's flash unit. It was previously speculated that the circular opening was merely a placeholder for what would ultimately house the familiar pill-shaped port seen in the iPhone 5s.

Also worth noting is the location of the sleep/wake actuator, which resides on one end of the flex cable, opposite a low-profile connector. Judging by the positioning in relation to the flash unit, the button could be side-mounted as rumored in multiple reports. An identical component for the rumored 4.7-inch next-gen iPhone was seen amid a cache of purportedly leaked parts earlier this month.

True Tone flash was first introduced with the iPhone 5s last year, as the dual-LED setup helps even out color temperatures in low-light situations for more natural looking photos. The iPhone 6 launch isn't so far away so that's when we'll see more details.
