iPhone 6 Mockup Caught on Video

iPhone 6 Video Mock

First came the concepts, then mock designs based on cases, and now we’re starting to see videos of what the iPhone 6 could look like. The latest attempt appears to be a 3D printed model with a larger 4.7-inch display.

Based on leaked schematics and other rumors, the power button on this mock is on the right side instead of the top, which should be easier to reach with the thumb. The video, reported on by Apple Insider and originally posted by the French site blognowhereelse.fr., also has rounded edges and a very thin profile.

While the mock looks fairly chintzy (this isn’t the real deal), it is quite thin, In fact, some say the iPhone 6 could be as svelte as 6 mm. That’s 0.23 inches, compared to 0.3 inches for the iPhone 5s. The Galaxy S5, for example, measures 0.31 inches.

Like today’s iPhone, the model shown has a Lightning port and headphone jack on the bottom along with a single speaker. There’s also a circular Touch ID home button beneath the display, but the screen does much thinner bezels on the side. Tim Cook has stressed that Apple wouldn’t make a bigger-screen iPhone unless the company didn’t have to compromise on usability, so one-hand friendliness will be key.

Apple is expected to launch two versions of the iPhone 6, one with a slightly larger 4.7-inch screen and an even bigger 5.5-inch version that may come later. Both devices will reportedly feature a faster A8 processor, a more advanced 10-MP camera, and new fitness features (courtesy of iOS 8 and the new Healthbook app).
