Apple's upcoming iPhone 6 has created enough curiosity especially following predictions and leaks. Patent sightings of Apple's inventions have also created hype suggesting how revolutionary the smartphone could be. This time, a leaked video shows what Apple's next generation iPhone will look like when compared with Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 phablet and Google's LG-produced Nexus 5. The video also provides new insight on the possible size of the device.
The gold colored version of the new iPhone 5S is seen after Apple Inc's media event in Cupertino, California September 10, 2013.
According to a report by Apple Insider, images of iPhone 6 cases were spotted in the second week of April. YouTube channel Unbox Therapy featured one of the products and offered a close up look. Based from the clip, people can see that the iPhone 6 case appears larger when compared to the present iPhone 5s. The current iPhone 5s features a 4-inch screen.
Lewis Hilsenteger from Unbox Therapy suggested that the dimensions of the product were evidently for a bigger screen. This can fit will with the reported 4.7-inch variant. When compared to the Galaxy Note 3 and the Nexus 5, the suggested iPhone 6 measures closer to the Google smartphone. This is in relation to the overall dimensions and the screen size. The Galaxy Note 3, on the other hand, still wins over the iPhone 6 in terms of height and weight.
The leaked case also hints at the possible thickness of the device. Considering the iPhone 5s, Hilsenteger pointed out that the whole case appears thinner. The present design for iPhone 5s features a 7.6-millimeters chassis.
Other interesting features include a sleep/wake button on the side of the handset instead of the top. This is a major overhaul from Apple's design tradition or layout. The volume buttons also appear to follow a similar format in the iPad compared to the previous iPhone models. The video suggests that Apple wants to create an iPhone with more rounded edge. This is similar to the iPad Mini.
