Its not likely Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will launch the purported iPhone 6 until later in the year, but the rumors regarding the phone are still going strong.
One of the more recent rumors actually compares a mockup of the next great Apple smartphone to current and previous models. One YouTube user who goes by the name DetroitBORG worked with Sonny Dickson, a popular tech blogger, and published a video that compares the mockup with other iPhones.
The iPhone 6 mock-up
The iPhone 6 is rumored to feature a larger display that measures 4.7 inches and has a resolution of 1704 x 960. If this rumor is true, it would be the second time Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) increased the screen size.
Earlier this week, Dickson shared images of the latest mockup in comparison to all the existing iPhones, including the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 5S. His massive gallery offered a close look at all the phones, but this more recent video gives fans even a closer look.
More rumors about Apple’s iPhone 6
The purported mockup design of the iPhone 6 may or may not be what Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has in mind for the upcoming gadget. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the Cupertino-based tech giant will release a redesigned iPhone this year. He thinks it will feature a 4.7 inch display, A8 Processor from Apple, NFC, Touch ID, larger battery, 1GB of RAM, and a complete design overhaul that may include a thinner body with smaller bezel on this display.
Kuo also predicts that the upcoming phone will feature a power / sleep / wake button on the side of the phone rather than the top. If Kuo is right about this particular feature, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would have taken a note from Android-based competitors who often place power buttons on the side of the phone for easier access.
