  • Rumored iPhone 6 Model Compared to an iPhone 5S as New 3D Renders Surface


    A recent pair of reports claims to reveal a bit more information about Apple’s upcoming 4.7-inch “iPhone 6,” with one comparing a widely circulated dummy of the larger handset against an iPhone 5S, although the other features 3D renderings purportedly from an Apple partner supplier.

    In a set of recent pictures obtained by French gadget site, nowhereelse.fr, a supposedly dummy mockup of Apple’s upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is pitted a current-model iPhone 5S. A number of these mockups have been making the rounds in China over the past weeks, each bringing an increasingly high level of detail with the first pictured in late March. Labeled as an “industrial model,” the purported prototyping tool measures 138mm long, 67mm wide and 7mm thick. Previous speculation based on similar dummy models pegged a thickness of 6.1mm, which is the exact depth of Apple’s iPod Touch and 1.5mm thinner than the iPhone 5S. In a previous report last week, a different mockup was compared side-by-side to an iPod Touch, illustrating the thinness of the latest dummy models.

    The mockup sports curved edges, round speaker ports and a “softer” aesthetic more in line with the design style introduced by the original iPad mini. Like many previous renders and mockups the recent version includes a round LED flash port, painted lines suggesting a segmented three-panel chassis design and protruding rear camera.

    Another report claims to show high-resolution 3D renderings of the 4.7-inch next-gen iPhone supposedly taken from Apple’s supply chain. Posted on Chinese forum, Feng.com, the images corroborate previous design detail rumors, including a side-positioned wake/sleep button, rounded volume controls, round LED flash, segmented rear panel and more.

    With exact measurements shown onscreen matching those from the dummy model detailed above, it’s likely that the schematic, or one like it, was used as a basis for the mockups floating around East Asia. This isn’t to say that the either are legitimate, but rather the two “leaked” bits of information are likely closely related. Apple is currently expected to introduce two iPhone models in 2014, both of which are thought to boast larger screen sizes than prior models. Recent reports appear to be claiming Apple’s supply chain is ramping production of the smaller 4.7-inch version for a launch as soon as August, while a larger 5.5-inch “phablet” model is said to debut weeks or months later.

    We’ll have to wait and see what turns out to be true.

      Looks like the original iPhone design with an aluminum frame.

      Much prefer almost any of the other mock ups that were floating around before the 5.

      I'd rather have the design mock ups that have come about with the 6 than the design of the 5 and 5S.

      I hate that they might be going with a rounded design. It's almost like they are changing the body style just because they want a change. That's dumb. The 5S has such a great design. Keep it just make it thinner and a sapphire screen why do u they want to make it look like a 3GS. So stupid

      Two things you will never see, removable battery and a sd card.

      Think of an iPad mini design but a phone. You know that's exactly what it's gonna look like.

      all the mockups are the same. Round chassis, thinner and 5C buttons. Looks like Samsung and Apple are trading designs. Samsung goes from rounded to square and Apple the other way around. Lets hope if the phone is going to be rounded, that is it not slippery like the first iPhone. Not to mention like the 5C as well. Don't like dropping my phones :]

      I think a lot of people get so wrapped up in specs that they forget about the user experience. The design will be fine for 95% of people out there. What's going to make or break the iPhone 6 is IOS 8.

      This is generally true.. But iOS8 will just be a LITTLE different from iOS7.. like 6 was like a 'grown up' ios5 .. 8 won't be that much different than 7.

      What will really make or break the 6 will be the size 'choices' (if any).. and if they keep the the widescreen aspect ratio of the screen proper. And for goodness sake.. let the damn screen go all the way to the edge of the phone like MOST NON-iphone's today..

      Still have 4 months to go. Better spread out all this “news” of a different mock-up every day if you want to go the distance.

      Right about that. From different articles they all say mild changes in iOS 8. Nothing major.

      True about that. Apple is made to be easy and just work for a certain spectrum of people. The whole thing with the sd card would just confuse them. If they just raise the ratio of the memory to a higher point we should be good. Also the sd card would mean u could sync music and apps without using iTunes. Which is their big money maker and a lot more people with non Jailbroken phones could pirate apps.

      I like the rounded looks but I really only care about a larger screen.

      Let's play this out logically shall we? During the first few years, the iPhone was rounded. Apple changed the design for many aesthetic reasons that were thought over for those few years regarding comfort, usability, damage potential, and among many more factors from user feedback, and returns. So don't expect Apple to go back with a design that they had already scrubbed since the iPhone 4's debut. It's not a logical assumption. All of the photos of mockups are usually fake just to start another rumor for the media's sake, and not much else. My point is, just look at the long list of Jabber in this thread already. A perfect recipe for generating good advertising revenue for the French site that the photos originated from. Just my three cents worth...
