iPhone 6 leaks continue with comparison of 4.7-inch model to 4-inch iPhone 5Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
The iPhone 6 leaks have been steadily increasing as we get closer to the device’s expected Sept. 9 debut, and today we’ve got one more to add to the pile.
Images that claim to show the space gray iPhone 6 lounging next to the white iPhone 5 have surfaced. The iPhone 6 in these photos is the 4.7-inch model, and when its resting next to the 4-inch iPhone 5, there are quite a few differences that can be picked out.
Not only is the iPhone 6 larger than the 5s, it’s also a hair thinner. The iPhone 6’s volume buttons thin and long rather than circular, the iPhone 6 has rounded sides compared to the 5’s flat edges and there’s also a power/lock key above the iPhone 6’s side-mounted SIM slot, while the iPhone 5’s power button is on its top.
There’s not much in this latest batch of iPhone 6 images that we haven’t already seen in previous leaks. That said, it doesn’t hurt to get a clear comparison of the current iPhone 5 with its successor, especially since the new model still isn’t official.
Now that we’re getting a good idea of what the iPhone 6 might look like, what do you think of this design? Does it stand up to hardware from Android and Windows Phone?
