Apple's much-anticipated next iPhone, expected to be called the iPhone 6, has been speculated
about and leaked in images several times
over the past few months. And it seems there's no stopping till the date Apple officially reveals its next-generation iPhone devices - leaks have been tipping there will be two display size variants - 4.7- or 5.5-inch.
After being compared with the Apple iPhone 5 on Thursday, a new leaked image posted by GSMArena shows the alleged iPhone 6 pictured beside the Samsung Galaxy S5.
The alleged wider, thinner iPhone 6 seems to feature a 4.7-inch display, and is slightly shorter than the Galaxy S5 (which sports a 5.1-inch display) in side by side comparison. The alleged iPhone 6 in the leaked image also appears to be thinner than the Galaxy S5 (Review I Pictures), which is 8.1mm thick.
Apple's rumoured iPhone 6 is widely anticipated to sport curved edges, doing away with its current straight-edge design. Further, the next iPhones' sides are said to house the power button positioned on the right panel of the device, instead on the top panel seen on current iPhone models. Meanwhile, the side panels are likely to include a slightly modified volume buttons.
A Taiwanese celebrity named Jimmy Lin on Thursday posted an image of the alleged iPhone 6 compared alongside iPhone 5 and also shared his first-hand experience with the unannounced iPhone. According to Lin, the alleged iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch display had a great display and was easy to grip despite of its large display size.
A recent report claimed that Apple's next iPhone would hit the shelves on September 19.
The Cupertino-based company has been rumoured to be testing a higher screen resolution on at least one of the two iPhone models likely to debut this year. An earlier report suggested that one of the two alleged iPhone 6 models would come with a 960x1704 pixels resolution screen, compared to the 640x1136 pixels resolution found on the current iPhone models that sport 4-inch displays.
We remind readers however, that nothing is official yet, and that all such leaks must be taken with a pinch of salt.
