Physical iPhone 6 Mockup Compared to Galaxy S5 in New Images

Earlier this week Italian site Macitynet shared images of a high-quality physical mockup of the iPhone 6, based on earlier design drawings and renderings. The site has now shared [Google Translation] a new series photos comparing that mockup to a Samsung Galaxy S5 display model, showing how Apple's larger iPhone might stack up to Samsung's flagship offering.

Samsung's Galaxy S5, released in April, has a display size of 5.1 inches, along with a thickness of 8.1mm. That makes it both larger and thicker than the iPhone 6 mockup, which appears to have a display size of 4.7-inches. While the thickness of the mockup cannot be determined, rumors have suggested the iPhone 6 will be thinner than the existing 7.6mm iPhone 5s, possibly between 6.5 and 7mm.

The mockup in the photos was reportedly created by a case manufacturer and is said to be a "final" version used to make sure cases and accessories will fit Apple's iPhone 6, which means that it could be a solid representation of what we can expect from Apple's larger phone.

Several design elements that have been seen in other case models and mockups are present in this high-quality mockup, including rounded edges, rectangular volume buttons, a rounded rear flash, a protruding camera, and a power button located on the right hand side of the device for easier one-handed use. ConceptsiPhone (via BGR) has compiled many of Macitynet's photos into a video, showing the mockup next to an iPhone 5s and an iPhone 4s.


Apple's 4.7-inch iPhone is expected to launch in the fall months, possibly as early as September. Along with a thinner frame and a larger display, it is also expected to include an A8 processor and camera improvements. A second 5.5-inch iPhone is also rumored to be arriving several months later due to production delays.

Is the home button really all that iconic for Apple to keep it?

Just wondering...


It's also the fingerprint scanner

Looks like Apple needs to change the shape/size of the home button. Its taking up too much bezel realestate

too much money went into R&D of that fingerprint sensor and unless they already come up with a way to have it built into the screen i dont see it going away anytime soon unfortunately.

so much wasted space! its almost bigger with a smaller screen ...

While it looks massively better than the Samsung, I just don't like it


Wait till Apple rolls it out.

Before these rumors got some credibility (and the reveal that Apple was acknowledging customers wanted bigger phone screens in the case), the crowd here slung words like "abomination" and similar for anything over 3.5" and then anything over 4": "one-handed use", "oversized pant pockets", etc. In short, Apple's chosen size was the one and only perfect size until Apple changed it's size and then THAT was the one an only perfect size.

As rumors grew and especially after the case reveal which then supported the idea, the crowd here started hedging: "wait & see", "might still be able to use it one-handed" and my favorite: "it's kind of growing on me".

Then, Apple will roll it out: "shut up and take my money", "best iPhone ever", "how did we ever get by with those puny screens", "I'm already in line".

Then about 2 years later, "Apple invented the big-screened smart phone" and evidence of others doing it first will be shouted down and those providing such evidence will be called trolls and similar.

While no one can speak for you, I'd bet handsomely that the bulk of those who put it down now will flip to "I'm already in line" as soon as Apple rolls it out. I suspect the bulk of those still putting down the bigger screen phone are still in that hedging state of not quite believing it's actually coming yet. So they'll put it down some but without the passion of "abomination" and similar.

Personally? I think it's long past due (and even Apple thinks that too per those court papers). They should have at least offered the option of some bigger screens a couple of years ago rather than leave the bigger sizes to Android. It's cost them some sales. They know it and are adapting to mitigate that advantage. I think bigger-screened iPhones will be GREAT! No special pants required. The spin of one-handed use might just be dropped from the spin list (like "who want's video on an iPod?" didn't persist when Apple launched a video iPod).

That big round home button taking up so much space just looks more and more ridiculous with every new mockup. Surely it's time for a change.

4.7 inch

6.7 mm

Americans are so odd. Pick a measuring system and stick to it

How can you measure in inches and mm on the same device?

Do we even know what a mm is?

And what is .7 inches anyway. Don't you mean 17/32 inches?
