UrAvgConsumer hit the streets of New York City with an iPhone 6 mockup to see what people thought about the rumoured larger form factor of Apple’s next flagship smartphone.
The reactions by people off the street varied, with a lot of people saying that they would not buy a larger phone because the current 4-inch handset is a perfect size.
My favorite comment was “It looks like a Samsung phone,” which is expected given Samsung’s reputation with its Galaxy Note series and its most recent Galaxy S5, both of which offer displays that are over 5-inches in size.
Apple is expected to preview iOS 8 and Mac OS X 10.10 at their WorldWide Developers Conference, which is only a week away. The company is reportedly planning to launch its next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 6, in the August-September timeframe, with the health and fitness-focused iWatch coming during the second half of this year.
The iPhone 6 is rumoured to feature a 4.7-inch screen, with a completely new design. Rumours also point to a second model of the iPhone 6 with a 5.5-inch screen, which will reportedly launch later in the year.
