Like clockwork, the closer we get to a new Apple announcement the better the leaks get.

Today we have several photos of a purported iPhone 6 case and screen, which show off the device’s rumored new curved design. The photos first showed up on a Chinese blog, but were then picked up by AppleInsider and others.

Of course, there’s no way to tell if these photos are legitimate or not. But given that we’re so close to the iPhone 6’s September 9 announcement, it’s not unusual to see evidence of what could be final parts floating around.

I’ve seen plenty of similar iPhone 6 case leaks over the past few months, but these photos are by far the clearest I’ve seen so far. They appear to be from the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model and sport a design that’s vaguely reminiscent of HTC’s new One M8.

In addition to the new curved edges, you can also see that there isn’t much of a side bezel around the sides of the phone’s screen. That’s to be expected, if Apple wants to cram in a larger display without making the phone itself too big.

If you’re eager to see what Apple’s got cooking, be sure to check out our rumor roundup for the upcoming iPhone 6 event.
