Apple iPhone 6 leaks: 4.7” and 5.5” model mockups compared

Apple iPhone 6 leaks: 4.7” and 5.5” model mockups compared
The iPhone 6 is about to become one of the biggest upgrades in iPhone history, with expectations for not one, but two larger-screen models: a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 coming first in the fall, and a 5.5-inch model to arrive shortly after.

While we’re still months away from their official unveiling, Sonny Dickson, the Australian kid who made a name for himself last year, leaking pre-release images of the iPhone 5s and 5c, now strikes again with full mockups showing what the 4.7” and 5.5” iPhone 6 are very likely to look like.

Both models look stunningly thin, and also very similar in terms of design, adopting iPad mini-like aesthetics with curvier edges. The larger screens in both have forced some changes in terms of button layout - the lock key is no longer on top (where it’d be hard to reach), but has moved to the right side, closer to the thumb (if you’re right handed). On the back, Apple has reduced the antennas, leaving just small strips of plastic that almost do not interrupt the apparently aluminum matte back of the iPhone 6. Interestingly, Apple seems to have also ditched the pill-shape dual-tone flash in the iPhone 5s for a simpler, round one (a single one seemingly).

Up front, you can see how the 4.7-inch iPhone has a fairly sizeable bezel, while the 5.5-inch one, in contrast, has almost non-existent side bezel, and is very compact for its size. Pictures of these next iPhones come in white, gold, and gray, the already established iPhone color palette.

And while this is not the first iPhone 6 leak (Taiwanese pop star Jimmy Lin posed with an allegedly leaked iPhone 6 a few days ago), it looks like the most detailed one, coming from a proven source. We can imagine the secrecy-loving people at Apple are not very happy with this, but what we’re more curious about is your thoughts on this new design: do you like it or not?

Looking at the back reminds me of the HTC M7 next to the One Max.

Hell no, LG has stepped up their aesthetics game. Samsung at least isn't taking steps backwards in design like this. This is by far the ugliest phone yet and that is sad. The last thing apple had was their jewelry advantage and now they don't even have that.

Wait, no, Samsung and LG are still probably uglier than this. But I agree that it is at least the ugliest iPhone ever. If it really comes out like this.

They do not know how to do. All designs on candy bar types is already taken. What do you guys expected? Apple was so acclaimed about the design, until now, when they have to change their lucky step design of iPhone 4.

Sorry to tell you that Samsung can't step backwards. Out of all the phone manufactures Samsung is the worst in design. All there phones look cheap and low grade. Nothing has changed in years except trying to copy other manufactures 2 year old models.

Stop this mock-up madness. There have no parts of the new iPhone leaked that can be trusted. I think we won't get reliable rumors and leaks before the mass production of the iPhone 6 started.

Except there's no curve on the front, or maybe you've never seen an S3

Looking at the back reminds me when you buy some sticker, and you pull it out.

73. gregoryyy3 unregistered

thats one of those things you just keep to yourself cause that was not funny even if you say you "weren't trying to be"

77. stealthd unregistered

Yeah it looks just like those HTC phones, if you've never seen them before.

Apple's marketing department leak factory is working overtime. So today we get another round of the same basic leak, but with a little bit better resolution. Even though the final designs for this phone have been done for months. Because the leakers upgraded their cameras but were still not able to take a picture of the real phones being made now?

This 5.5 inch iphone will be much lager than Note 3 (5.7 inch) That's because of the useless FPScanner magic. Bezels......

4. givemespecs unregistered

I really hope the bezels are smaller than this on the 4.7" model, although it won't look quite so bad on the grey version I guess. I can't believe that Apple will launch a 4.7" phone which is too close in size to say the LG G2 or Galaxy S5, especially when they made such a thing about the 5S being the perfect size for one handed use.

Those bezels on the 4.7" version are pretty bad...

Since when iPhone people started considering the bezels? For them its a must or else how could they differentiate from androids :D

More screen size will also lead to more weight.let's see how bulky this device turn out to be. Now finally iPhone users will feel insecure holding such a big device. We might here from them - oops I dropped it as I'm not use to such a huge screen but you know what it feels good finally we can see some Graphics while playing high end games because earlier to this we used to cover 2inch screen with our figures and remaining 2inch was left to see the actual gameplay . :p

*More screen size will also lead to more weight* Not always. Note 3 (5.7 inch ) is lighter and smaller than Note 1 (5.3 inch) Also all Notes are lighter than Nokia 930 (4.5 inch) But Apple with this useless FPScanner magic, could never make bezels small

74. gregoryyy3 unregistered

"Apple with this useless FPScanner magic" you mean the only cell phone manufacture that got it right? Go try the S5's if you think apple's is bad.

Ifan's are going to buy this because they are smart and don't want to spend all their time on the phone with tech support for their carrier..
