Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s upcoming iPhone 6 is yet to see the light of the day. But we have already seen numerous concept designs, mockups and comparisons with other leading smartphones. We can’t say for sure what the iPhone 6 would look like until it is announced officially. But comparison site Versus has created an awesome 3D tool to show how the upcoming device stacks up against the iPhone 5S and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930)’s Galaxy S5.
To create the 3D model of the iPhone 6, Versus used all the recent rumors, leaks and analyst reports as guidelines. But it had to omit some key details shown in multiple mockups such as the plastic inserts on the back of the iPhone 6. Overall, shape and look of the 3D model is in line with most of the media leaks so far. So, let’s see how it stacks up against the existing flagship devices, the iPhone 5S and Galaxy S5.
iPhone 6 vs iPhone 5S
The iPhone 6 has garnered 6990 points on Versus (at the time of writing this report), compared to 5,106 points for the iPhone 5S. The yet-to-be released smartphone has received more points than 5S for several reasons. Versus says that the iPhone 6 is likely to have a 1700mAh battery compared to 1570mAh in the iPhone 5S. The new smartphone will reportedly have a 1.5GHz processor, 15.3% faster than the 1.3GHz in the iPhone 5S.
Moreover, the iPhone 6 is likely to have a relatively higher pixel density of 416ppi vs 326ppi in its predecessor.

The iPhone 6 is rumored to sport a scratch-proof sapphire display, and it will be waterproof and dustproof.

It has a quad-core 2.5GHz processor, compared to dual-core 1.5GHz in the iPhone 6. The Galaxy S5 has a relatively higher pixel density of 432ppi compared to 416ppi for the iPhone 6.
