Samsung launched the Galaxy S5, its flagship smartphone in April, and the phone will be competing against the likes of iPhone 5S, HTC One M8 and others. But later this year, Samsung’s flagship will have to compete with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s newest offering, the rumored iPhone 6. New photos suggest how the iPhone 6 will compare closely to the Samsung Galaxy S5.
While the name is not confirmed yet, the new flagship offering will most likely be known as iPhone 6, as per Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s usual naming pattern. These days Apple iPhone 6 rumors have been increasingly seen on the web, as the smartphone is nearing its release.
iPhone 6 Mockup vs Samsung Galaxy S5 compared
If you are eager to see how the iPhone 6 compares to the Samsung Galaxy S5, then check out these photos.
Italian site Macitynet has posted these photos that show the iPhone 6 model next to a Samsung Galaxy S5. The site claims to have gotten their hands on an iPhone 6 manufacturer’s final mockup that will be thinner compared to the Galaxy S5. The Italian site claims that the iPhone 6 will be “more easy to hold and use than the Samsung Galaxy S5.”
The pictures confirm that the iPhone 6 will indeed be the biggest iPhone ever, with a screen size of 4.7-inch, up from 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5S and much bigger than the 3.5-inch on older models. However, the Galaxy S5 still wins the bigger screen war, with a screen size of 5.1-inch.
When compared side-by-side, the iPhone 6 mockup is clearly thinner than the Galaxy S5, something that many rumors have pointed to. Plus, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is a company who likes thinner devices and that’s why it won’t be a surprise if iPhone 6 is much thinner than the Galaxy S5, or even the iPhone 5S.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) also moved the power button from the top to the right side of the iPhone. This decision was taken, perhaps because reaching for the top of such a big device is not convenient, whereas locking/unlocking from the side using the thumb is much more convenient and easy.
Of course, this is just a mockup and nothing is set in stone yet. However, it does at least give us a pretty good idea of the appearance of the iPhone 6.
