Apple iPhone 6 dummy poses for size comparison with the Apple iPhone 5s
Other constants include a larger screen, rounded corners, and a back that looks like it was lifted from the HTC One (M8). The power button has switched sides, to improve grip, and the volume buttons are now elongated. And from all indications, this version of the iPhone could be thin enough that we could see it given the moniker Apple iPhone Air.
The pictures below show a size comparison between the Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 5s. Last week, we passed along a report that had the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 launching in August, with the 5.5 inch phablet version of the phone coming to market the following month. As usual, we suggest taking this story with a grain of salt, as the dummy units could be faked. That means that while you can decide whether or not the new design is something you'd like to see, there is nothing official that says that the iPhone 6 will indeed look like the device in the photographs.

Soooo…You mean… who inspired Apple to copy themselves LOL?

u mean a copy clone. and it's a dummy phone

Take a look at the front of the HTC m7, slap an Apple logo on the screen and tell me if it doesn't remind you of the back of the iP5? Did it ever occur to you why HTC signed an agreement with Apple regarding their patents(including what I think the stupidest patent of all, the rounded corners one)? Anyways whether we like it or not, HTC did copy the iP5 and the BB Z10 in the M7, I am not saying it is wrong, because it turned out to be a beautiful piece of aluminum, but yeah, this design belongs to Apple's design language.

5s for 6
Note 2 for Note 4 OR OnePlusOne

Depends on your budget. Note 4 will definately be 2x the cost of Oneplus One but also be better. Is it worth double the cost? Thats for you to decide.

Yea exactly. Time will tell hehe :P

If i was you i would upgrade to the htc m8 from the htc m7.

Suck t c has too many deal breakers. Top mounted buttons and rattling volume rocker are just two.
The iPhone 6 won't have these issues.
That does look ugly though.

The HTC M8 volume rocker doesn't rattle, so get your facts straight before making a fool out of yourself in public.
31. maherk (Posts: 927; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
Sadly it does, and the screen in many of the units isn't flush with the speakers, anddd there is the dead pixels problem, the sudden battery death problem, and the cracking of the speakers. I am not hating on the M8, it should have been the best Android flagship this year if they HTC wasn't so cheap and dumb when it came to marketing the phone and paying MUCH more attention to their build quality, and this is coming from a proud S5 owner. Now someone will tell me that they have the M8 and it is flawless, well I ll tell you that forums don't lie, it doesn't affect EVERY OTHER M8, but it is affecting lots of them.
40. Taters (Posts: 3010; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Actually almost all HTC phones have rattling volume rockers. They suck pretty but HTC fanboys just choose to ignore the issues for reason.
47. azers07 (Posts: 27; Member since: 17 Aug 2013)
so much hatred, dude, I know 5 people upgraded to m8, including me (I've upgraded from nexus 4), also my brother has droid dna, and guess what, no volume rocker problems))
just hold m8 in your hands for 10 seconds, you'll understand that best smartphone is not all about heart rate sensors and 16 mp cameras.=) camera is not shining, but i'm ok, you'll be ok too
52. TheGenius (Posts: 326; Member since: 06 Mar 2014)
Well maherk explicitly mentioned that there will be a fon boy who'll claim to own a m8 and tell that its perfectly ok and you did the same.!
Well played maherk.
Azers07 best smartphone is not only about outer body.
It IS about cameras, sensers, screen size, phone dimensions, and os updates and htc sucks in all these departments.!
And.. no, we'll never be ok with a less than mediocre 4MP camera.
59. azers07 (Posts: 27; Member since: 17 Aug 2013)
I'm just saying that its superior stereo speakers, overall smoth look and feel compensates that 4MP, also its 4MP camera smokes out Nexus 5 and GS4 shots ( I've tested them myself)). I don't need much.
68. Taters (Posts: 3010; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
I call bs. I went through two One X, two HTC 8x, two M7, two M8, not to mention every display model in Vancouver and they ALL have rattling volume rockers and poor finishing near the USB port.
Not my idea about quality.
57. Hyperreal (Posts: 127; Member since: 08 Oct 2013)
I dont know whats your and everybodys problem with defective units. If you have one, what is your warranty for? They will replace your phone. I dont choose to ignore it. I had few htc phones and only once i had such a problem. And they replaced my phone with no problems. And i had one samsung phone and it was repaired 3 times and still didnt work fine. So go home htc hater.
61. maherk (Posts: 927; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
Yeah, because everyone lives in the US, Europe, and India. Back home in Lebanon, even if you buy your phone with warranty, no matter how faulty your unit is, dont expect more than a fix, no way a phone will get replaced, from Samsung to htc to Sony and every other OEM.
62. Hyperreal (Posts: 127; Member since: 08 Oct 2013)
And whats wrong with fixing instead of replacing with a new one?
64. maherk (Posts: 927; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
I can't but laugh at your stubbornness to let go your fanboyism! Yeah let me spend $800 on a phone and I ll be TOTALLY okay with sending it back for few weeks for it to be fixed, who wouldn't want to live in such a great and lovely experience? Now you'll have something to tell yoir grandkids about
69. Taters (Posts: 3010; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
You can only replace a phone so many times before it becomes unacceptable. Maybe you can live with garbage defects and that us why you only replaced an HTC phone once but I can't.

Can't wait to buy this phone, it's gonna be weird holding a larger iPhone. Will mos def be camping out, gotta make sure I get one on launch day.

The Stamford Mall was crazy last year, and a lot of fun!
11. darkkjedii (Posts: 11373; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
I camped out with my wife (fiancé at the time), at an At&t store here in Vegas. We picked up our phones, went to the airport to get her cousins, headed home, unpacked, went to set up the reception hall, and then they left for her bachelorette party. We got married the next day, it was sooo exhausting dude, and hella fun. We got like 3 hrs sleep fri-sat. I love the camp out thing dude, people just chillin having fun.

The final model probably won't look as dull.

Two months more to finish my mac pro installment, and I will definitely apply platinum card for this, hope it released 128gb version for me :)
19. tech2 (Posts: 2061; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)
In pic 5, did anyone notice the lightening port got a bit thinner ? Hopefully they didn't change the port again.
20. nctx77 (Posts: 506; Member since: 03 Sep 2013)
it's a dummy unit. Even the headphone jack is the wrong size.
22. BReND0 (Posts: 60; Member since: 07 Dec 2010)
I dont think any of these dummys are the real versions of the final Iphone 6. I think its all a bunch of douches with 3d printers. Too much time on there hands. Making stuff off rumors and schematics. Its easy to take a dummy. Put it underwater. But thats my thought because enlongated volume buttons, big screen , new power button location plus a roundish design. I know apple will change some to compete. But all these are way too much. So again. My thoughts. Be easy haters......
26. TechDork (Posts: 234; Member since: 10 May 2010)
That's how I feel. Nobody knows what the iPhone 6 will look like until the Keynote. Although, the design rumors for the iPhone 4, 5, 5C & 5S had all been proven to be true........meh.
35. 0xFFFF (Posts: 3071; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
Most of the rumors are funded through backchannels by Apple to maintain interest in the iPhone.
A year between iPhone releases is turning out to be a long time compared to the frenetic pace of Android phone releases.
Consider that Apple is (rumored to be) releasing phones in sizes that were commonplace in 2012 in the Android world. With Apple's late in the year release of the iPhones, this is almost three years behind Android. That's like two decades in mobile phone years.
36. michael95gt (Posts: 37; Member since: 19 Jul 2009)
Not crazy about it, I bought my 5s BECAUSE it is smallest Premium built phone made. I guess I'm in the minority but want/like a small phone. I have my MBP and iPad if i need bigger screen. I love Android, but the fast ones just keep getting bigger and bigger, I hope Apple doesn't follow suit. The HTC M8 is beautiful, but it's freaking huge. Hell 10-12 years ago, everyone wanted the smallest phone they could get. LOL
38. 0xFFFF (Posts: 3071; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
Something around the size of a Nexus 4 is a very good balance of phone size and phone utility (via the bigger screen). Hopefully for the iFans, Apple doesn't cheap out and put some substandard resolution screen on their 4.7" iPhone and that what they offer is at least HD resolution, ideally FHD.
42. tettech (Posts: 60; Member since: 18 Dec 2013)
You're not the only one in the minority side. The iPhone 5/5S fits snuggly in my pocket with ease and not have to worry about the awkward bulge sitting on a chair.
51. Doakie (Posts: 1253; Member since: 06 May 2009)
I have a Note 3 AND a Moto G that ride in the same front jeans pocket. I don't have any problems with them being there. I think your pants pockets are too small...
63. kalloud (Posts: 109; Member since: 21 Jun 2012)
What about Xperia Z1 Compact? It's a small yet very powerful device..
37. somad (Posts: 58; Member since: 17 Apr 2014)
Samsung was the first company who brought devices with big screen. ...
43. Alan01 (Posts: 187; Member since: 21 Mar 2012)
Not true. The HTC HD2 was a shocking 4.3 inches in 2009. Incidentally, it launched with Windows Mobile although just about every major Android build, webOS and Firefox OS, has been tested on the hearty device.
39. Ishtiaque99 (Posts: 12; Member since: 15 Apr 2014)
Whatever u say, iphone 5s is much more beautiful than this iphone 6 dummy. If the real iphone 6 be like this, sales will probably fall.
41. 0xFFFF (Posts: 3071; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
Don't worry. Real iPhone 6 will have a big red "Beats" logo that will make all iFans happy as can be.
