Assuming the rumors are true, there is a good chance that the next-gen iPhone could come in various sizes: a 4.7-inch model and a 5.5-inch model. That being said, the rumors also suggest that the 4.7-inch model could launch first, since there are battery issues with the 5.5-inch model that could cause it to be delayed to 2015.
In the meantime, the folks at Unbox Therapy have managed to get their hands on what they allege is a case designed for the iPhone 6, and in the video they compare it against devices like the Nexus 5, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and the iPhone 5s, all of which come in varying sizes (4.95-inches, 5.95-inches, and 4-inches respectively).
Since they’re all of different sizes, the case gives us a rough idea of how big the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 could look like and how it might look in our hands. Granted it’s not exactly the more accurate way of comparing since the case probably adds a little bit of thickness, not to mention no one really knows what the phone will look like.
The case in the video also shows off the power button which has allegedly been repositioned to the side of the iPhone, where previously it was placed in the top right corner of the device. There is a chance that case manufacturers are basing their design on the leaked schematics that we have seen in the past, but then again there’s no telling if those schematics are even the real deal to begin with.
In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but if you wanted to see what a larger iPhone could look like, especially against the competition, then check out the video above for more details.
