Space Gray 4.7-inch iPhone 6 Design Compared To iPhone 5 [Photos]
Apple’s soon-to-be-announced iPhone 6 is one of the worst kept secrets in modern consumer technology history. The latest hardware to compliment the company’s range of iOS devices has been stripped completely for all to see across the Internet. It has had pretty much every individual component scrutinized and torn apart in what has been one of the most analyzed product roadmaps we can remember. It’s been photographed, rendered and displayed from pretty much every angle you can imagine on every website you can think of, and even some you never knew existed. We’re fast approaching the official introduction of the device, but just incase you hadn’t seen enough of it, then here’s yet another gallery of the next-generation iPhone, this time alongside the 4-inch iPhone 5.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months you’ll be pretty clued up on what to expect with this new, larger iPhone model. So, what else is there to see we can hear you ask? Well, actually seeing the purported hardware from a number of different angles, side-by-side the current generation model puts everything into context and gives us a much clearer picture of the visual changes that we can expect when Apple announces the device next month. It’s also extremely interesting to see the design similarities that have been honored from the current 4-inch model.
The device shown in the gallery – which comes courtesy ofGizmobic – is the rumored 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6, kitted out in beautiful Space Gray, which is likely to be one of the most popular color options come launch time.
It becomes immediately evident that the extra 0.7-inch display size shouldn’t make a huge amount of difference in terms of usability. The real test will be when we actually get a glimpse of the speculated 5.7-inch "phablet" version that we’ve been hearing so much about.
It’s also interesting to see how much thinner Apple has managed to make the device in comparison to the iPhone 5. The photos also suggest that it was impossible to find a camera module with a thin enough profile to fit into the new shell.
Other than the amended aesthetic, there isn’t a great deal to see here. We really need to get one of these things in our hands to "feel" the changes. We don’t have long to wait until we can officially see the iPhone 6 up and running on stage in Tim Cook’s hands, but until then, check out the gallery and feast your eyes on what could be Apple’s most-defining product of recent years.
