With 48 hours until Apple’s big reveal, we’ve by now seen our fair share of leaked footage showing off a nearly-assembled 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and a new iOS 8 Passbook icon with a credit card pictogram on top.
There’s also that fresh clip out of China making the rounds this morning, giving us our best look yet at purported iPhone 6 design and the smoothness of iOS 8 running on the device. Still, there’s no denying that all some folks can muster after seeing these videos is Android.
I guess you could make an argument that the iPhone 6 design aesthetics are reminiscent of some high-end Android handsets from the likes of HTC and others. On the other hand, there are only so many ways to design a bar phone.
What are your feelings on the matter? Is the leaked iPhone 6 design too Android-ish for your tastes? And has the handset lost the design language that made it uniquely an iPhone, do you think?
Note: the poll is at the article bottom.
I guess you could make an argument that the back of the phone is similar to HTC’s flagship handset.
Check out those rounded screen edges and smoldering looks.
And the controversial antenna breaks.
Before making the judgment, keep in mind the reason the iPhone 6 doesn’t look like an Apple-finished product is because the leaked parts have not gone through the final stages of production to give them the fit and finish you’ve come to expect from Apple.
And with that off our backs, feel free to cast your vote now.
Will you be disappointed if this design turns out to be the real deal?
Having initially hated it, the iPhone 6 looks have grown on me and I now think it’s great that the handset is harkening back to the days of the original iPhone.
