The upcoming iPhone 6 redesign pretty much looks like a cousin of the iPod touch. So why not compare an iPhone 6 dummy unit, which may or may not indicate the final design, next to the portable media player? It’s like some gadget Hot or Not experiment. We’ve been getting some really good looks at the alleged iPhone 6 over the past few weeks, so let’s keep on adding coal to the fire. It has rounded edges, an aluminum back, slightly a protruding camera and a displaced sleep/wake button, just like most other dummy units.
The folks over at macitynet.it have a nice spread of what the redesign might look like compared to Apple’s old iPod touch, which is old, though seems to somewhat resemble the new iPhone 6. The two designs are pretty much the same, with the iPhone dummy unit sporting more of a rounded screen and those enormous antenna bands. Otherwise just imagine picking up a larger iPod touch—one with a 4.7-inch screen; that’s what the iPhone 6 might feel like.
While we aren’t assuming this is the legit final design of Apple’s iPhone so far ahead of a possible fall release, we do imagine it isn’t all that far off. The design, from the iPhone 4 on up to the iPhone 5s, hasn’t changed too drastically, though the display size has, so we’re pretty much due for a big shakeup.
We still have some mixed feelings about how it looks. On the one hand, it looks thin and light, and that larger screen is definitely welcome. But those antenna bands are nightmarish and unsightly. You can do better, Jony.
Now that supposed schematics of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6 have been let loose, a number of dummy units have been created in an effort to approximate what a finished model would look like. We saw a near-finished model put together the other day, and now another has been snapped on camera, giving us a clear […]
Usually we start to see iPhone parts leak out before the release, like the SIM tray, camera modules, new mainboards and the front and back panels. This year things are taking a bit of a different turn, however, with the alleged schematics for the device already leaked to accessory makers. As such, we’re being treated […]
Last week we saw an iPhone 6 dummy compared to the Galaxy S5, and today a new set of photos obtained by Macitynet put the mockup unit side-by-side with the iPhone 5s. The recent parade of iPhone mockups all appear to come from the same leaked schematics, meaning there’s no guarantee what we’re looking at represents […]
