Photos compare purported 'iPhone 6' mockup against dummy Samsung Galaxy S5

Samsung logoIn what Italian Apple blog calls a comparison of two mockups, the alleged iPhone 6 dummy — with 4.7-inch screen — is curiously contrasted against a display model Galaxy S5, which is already on sale worldwide.

As with most recent "leaks," the publication says an inside source provided the "final mockup" used in the shoot, noting the level of detail on this particular piece is much higher than those seen over the past few weeks.

Looking at the photos, first spotted by BGR, the iPhone 6 mockup bears a striking resemblance to a purported prototype pictured in late March. Both have a segmented three-panel chassis design with a protruding rear camera and single round LED flash unit.

Further inspection does reveal a slightly more "finished" look than past mockups, with an indented home button with faux Touch ID ring, raised volume controls and side-mounted wake/sleep switch and even silver bezels for the rear camera and flash.

Expectedly, when compared to the Galaxy S5's 5.1-inch display, the iPhone 6 model is a tad smaller in all dimensions. Of note, the supposed Apple handset showpiece is significantly thinner than the S5, a feature made more conspicuous by the iPad mini-like rounded edges. This is in line with a set of renderings revealed in late April — again of questionable origin — that claimed the 4.7-inch version of Apple's next-gen iPhone will be about 6 millimeters thick or roughly 1.6 millimeters thinner than Samsung's device.

Friday's photos join a cavalcade of rumored iPhone 6-related leaks, including Most recently, a 3D mockup seemingly fashioned based on dimensions described by prior rumors was shown off in a video on Thursday.

Apple is widely expected to unveil a next-generation iPhone this fall, with some industry watchers predicting the release of both a 4.7-inch version and a "phablet" size 5.5-inch variation.
