Apple iPhone 6 leaks: 4.7” and 5.5” model mockups compared
posted by Victor H. / Jun 14, 2014, 2:42 AM
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.

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.

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

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?

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.

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
