Duke it out, dummies! 6.1" vs 6.5" iPhone 2018 mockups fight on video

If you have been wondering how does the eventual 6.1" LCD iPhone stack up next to the also-eventual largest iPhone ever - the 6.4" X Plus, or whatever Apple calls them - look no further than these two CAD-based dummies video from a trusted source whose leaked schematics, and the subsequent renders, have always been credible in the past.

The 6.1-incher doesn't shy too much away from the current iPhone 8 aesthetic, at least from the rear point of view, as the back of the iPhone 2018 is expected to be crafted out of glass again, and sport a single rear camera. The front, however, will undergo drastic screen-to-body ratio changes thanks to the shrunk bezels all around, and the notorious notch protrusion of the top bezel where the TrueDepth camera is going to be housed.

When it comes to the 6.4-incher, it's obviously a very big phone, notch or not, but the increased screen ratio will probably put it around the size of the current 8 Plus, and there are millions of folks used to carrying those dimensions already. Thus, the iPhone X 2018 successor is shaping up to be the only fairly compact handset in Apple's lineup this year, barring the iPhone 8 which will probably remain on sale for the nostalgia-oriented customers who just can't go without their beloved home button.

6.1" is LCD vs the 6.5" is OLED. Plus the 6.5" will have dual cameras and 3D touch. All missing from the 6.1 LCD version.

I smell record numbers. Can Apple reach 100+ million sold within the Holiday Quarter?

My next iPhone would be one without a notch. The notch is the ugliest s**t to ever become a “feature” of a phone.
