Majority of rumours and reports over the past few months have hinted that Apple will launch the ‘iPhone 6’ in two sizes, i.e a 4.7-inch display model and a larger 5.5-inch one. We have already seen evidences of the 4.7-inch version in the shape of Foxconn’s manufacturing molds and leaked iPhone 6 cases. Today, a MacRumors forum member has shared renders of a 4.7-inch ‘iPhone 6’ side-by-side its Android-based competition.
“If the rumors are true, at least one model of the iPhone 6 will contain a 16:9 4.7” screen. When you think about it realistically the iPhone 6 will have a home button with a finger print scanner the same size as the iPhone 5S. Also will the top and bottom bezels have the same height for symmetry. The side bezels will be smaller than the iPhone 5S, but they will not be non-existing.”
A 4.7-inch ‘iPhone 6’ is first compared to the Motorola Moto X and LG G2 Mini (top). While both Androids phones feature 4.7-inch displays, they turned out to be smaller because of the rounded Touch ID sensor on the bottom and the need for the top and bottom bezels to be symmetrical, as per Apple’s ‘design philosophy’. Compared to the 5″ Nexus 5 and the 5.2″ LG G2 (below), the ‘iPhone 6’ could be as tall as either phone but with smaller screen size.
Finally, when compared to the HTC One (m8) and Samsung Galaxy S5, both the Android devices were found to be larger in every way. So while ‘iPhone 6’ may not be able to impress in screen size alone when compared to its Android competitors, it may just stand out in thinness.
