New HomePod part leak shows off glossy display cover

HomePod could get a new display

Apple has been long rumored to be working on a HomePod with a full touch display that can show more than a waveform, and a new leak offers a look at the potential glossy display glass.

The HomePod and HomePod mini have a touch-sensitive glass surface, but it is a simple pane of LEDs showing a waveform. Rumors suggest Apple could upgrade the HomePod with a full touch display with a GUI similar to Apple TV, but nothing has been announced.

An alleged part image leaked by X user @Kosutami_Ito shows what appears to be the top assembly for a new HomePod display. There's no way to know how big the glass is without a point of reference, but the leaker says it shows a glossy display cover.

A previous leaked image showed what looks like a normal Homepod with a top glass capable of showing images. Other leaks have suggested that a 7-inch display is possible, but the top glass on a HomePod is nowhere near that size, so the leaks appear to reference two different design directions.

Like the previous HomePod leak, this part is sourced from the project labeled B720. It appears that this model would look like a HomePod does today, just with a display on top.

Kosutami is a known leaker that collects design validation test products and other such pre-production items. The leaker has a short history with accurate leaks like USB-C components for iPhone 15, but also some misses like with a supposed iPhone 15 Pro black Thunderbolt cable. They've also leaked information about the iPhone 16's new battery specs and heat sink.
