iphone 6 case compare

We don’t know if they’re real or not, but a number of cases supposedly made for the next iPhone have surfaced online in the past few weeks. It seems like they are all based on the ‘iPhone 6’ schematic drawing published last month, depicting a thin handset with rounded corners and a large display.

Today we get a better idea of the purported device’s size thanks to a new comparison video by Unbox Therapy. The clip shows how one of these iPhone 6 cases stacks up against other popular smartphones—including the iPhone 5s, Nexus 5 and the Galaxy Note 3—in terms of various measurements…

Here’s the clip, again from Unbox Therapy:

This is a quick look at what looks like the first 3rd party case for the upcoming iPhone 6 – 4.7-inch (may also come in 5.5-inch variant). This video also compares the speculative iPhone 6 4.7-inch against some popular devices that are already on the market including the iPhone 5s, Nexus 5 and Galaxy Note 3. 

The video serves its purpose, giving us a good idea of how big this alleged iPhone 6 is It seems closest in size to the Nexus 5, as it’s quite a bit bigger than the iPhone 5s, but still substantially smaller than the Galaxy Note 3. For reference, the Nexus has a 4.95-inch display, and the Note is 5.95-inches.

The case used in the comparison matches up with others we’ve seen. You can see the Sleep/Wake button has been moved from the top right of the handset to the right side, the two circular volume buttons have been replaced with an elongated rocker switch, and the body features a rounded, iPad-like design.

The consensus is that the iPhone 6 will be noticeably thinner than the current generation—between 6.5-7.0mm—with smaller bezels, and come in two flavors: a 4.7-inch model and a 5.5-inch model. It’s also believed to feature an A8 processor, various new sensors, an improved camera, and a larger battery.

Apple is expected to begin mass production of the new smartphone next month, ahead of what’s believed to be a September launch. There have been multiple reports, though, calling for the 5.5-inch version to be delayed several months due to manufacturing issues involving the company’s in-cell display tech.

  • Note 3 is the most beautiful

    • Batman

      WOW, such taste

      • you know it BATMAN!

        Many people are defending/praising certain phones because they bought them. I understand, people just want to show other people they made the right/great/best choices. And sometimes they make some great points. But note3 most beautiful? Seriously?

      • Yes BATMAN! Serious. I’m an artist, I’ve got good taste. lol

      • Batman

        LOL. I only know that children love plastic toys.

      • Is this your way of defending/praising a certain phone you bought?

        Btw, did you just mention toys BATMAN?

      • Batman

        You really like to capitalize batman.
        Explain to me how is your note3 beautiful?
        Did you paint some beautiful tattoos on your faux leather back, self-claimed artist?
        How about that ugly front? What can you do to that?

      • Can you kindly stop trolling BATMAN?

      • Batman

        People can’t tolerate your nonsense. Had to give them justice.

  • vs511

    I really hope this is just a mashup. With that sort of thinness, it may last only 2 hours.

  • Nicolas Cage

    Wow, Apple is copying Samsung now? Looks like a Galaxy S3

    • So what they are copying. The form factor and power button on the side is the right decision. Good for Apple

      • Nicolas Cage

        That’s what she said

      • RarestName

        I don’t think you know what that means.

      • Nicolas Cage

        I know everything!

      • @dongiuj

        Apart from what you say.

      • felixtaf

        Except acting!

      • Nicolas Cage

        Oh, thanks bro.. 🙁

    • felixtaf

      Looks like S3? S3 has more rounded edges than this leaked case. Also, Mr. Cage, have you ever seen an iPhone 3G before?

      • Nicolas Cage

        Yes… but the 3G has a totally different design then this thing.

      • felixtaf

        Ok.. Y fight over some leaks… Lets wait n see…

      • Nicolas Cage

        Exactly, just like National Treasure 3.

  • mahe

    This is a monster of a phone …
    I’ll stick to the 5s if the 6 really is that big …

  • Tony

    Going to be interesting for sure. Still debating on getting this, waiting for the bigger one or just holding onto my 5s until 6s is released.

  • Prathik Nair

    I really hope that Apple doesn’t hit us with JUST the usual “bigger and thinner” as the main feature of the phone. For the last 3 years the biggest features of any big apple release has been screen size and overall size of device. I need that WOW feature!

  • GuyBey0ndC00L

    That 4.7″ is the sweet spot for me

  • felixtaf

    Everything is ok, except THINNESS.. Y Apple, Y???

  • omrishtam

    again, please stop these “concepts” just wait quiertly to the release

  • mickey

    Quite narrow. It’s a shame there’s so much height bc of the home button.

  • ins0mniac1

    I don’t understand why Apple needs so much bezel at the top of the device. Surely its possible to bring the speaker, front-facing camera and light sensor down a bit? Would look a lot slicker if they can minimise the top and bottom bezels.
