Compare the size of the Apple iPhone 6 with the Apple iPhone 5

The Apple iPhone 6 is rumored to carry a 4.7 inch screen. That is up from the 4 inch screen that debuted with the Apple iPhone 5. Prior to that, Apple's iconic smartphone had a 3.5 inch screen, which Steve Jobs felt was the perfect size for one handed use. When even mini versions of Android flagships started hitting 5 inches, iPhone users were getting restless about a larger screen for their pride and joy...

That protruding camera ruins the clean look of the phone IMO. And I really don't get why Apple and its iHerd is so obsessed with extreme thinness..

Because what else are they going to say when they present the phone? Apparently, no fragmentation and no. of app downloads are not enough for iFans.

They just want to brag that it's their innovation.

I'm not buying the protruding camera, I'm pretty sure Apple has found a way to make it flush with the phone, just like that China Telecom picture is showing.

It seems pretty set in stone from all the leaks lately...

I don't think so. Apple usually being obsessed with seamless design, the camera on those pictures just seems too gross to be the real deal. I think they'll come up with something flush eventually.

"Apple usually being obsessed with seamless design" At least until they run out of innovation to. Then they just bend their Apple reality to make protruding cameras "beautiful". Remember the new iPad? It was fatter, heavier and all around crappier than the iPad 2, yet people still went totally crazy about it.

It is just like the one on the ipod touch, apple design

I agree. This race to making the thinnest phone ever is creating a lot of unnecessary compromises. Just look at the Motorola Droid Razr or even as far back as the Droid X and it's protruding camera housing. They should've at least placed in a larger battery (instead of making me buy the extended battery that adds only 1mm more to the thickness). Hopefully this mockup isn't real.

Looks so HTC One M7...and even the M7 didn't have a protruding camera. Protruding cameras are so 2012 (S3, One X, etc.), which is where this phone belongs.

Don't forget that all of the Galaxy series phones have protruding cameras, although they are much better looking than Apple's implementation...

That's what Apple would do if it was the other way round, lol...

Well, at least they both will have ONE thing in common: NO 1080x1920 screen. iCHUMPS...

Sorry disappointing you. 4.7" will be 960p and 5.5" will be 1280p.

I dont care about resolution actually. I care about pixel density.

22. JakeLee

Posts: 1021; Member since: Nov 02, 2013

That would make 416 and 475 each.

They are not complaining but trolling. BTW, there was an article here about iPhone's resolutions to be much less. Androtakus *want to* believe that.

Yup, a resolution that's not very common, not even in the desktop/ laptop realm of things. The MacBook Air is 1300x900 with 768 being the step below. Everything else is 1080p and up.
