Apple’s iPhone 6 casing has cropped up in a video for the first time adding weight to the strong rumours that the device will have a much larger screen than its predecessor.
The video, which was released by Unbox Therapy, shows a pink prototype case of the iPhone 6 alongside various other devices and the first thing that jumps out is that it is noticeably larger than the iPhone 5S.
It is shown side-by-side with the iPhone 5S as well as the Google Nexus 5, which it is the same size as, and the larger, phablet-sized Samsung Galaxy Note 3, all signs pointing to it coming with the rumoured 4.7in display.
The iPhone 6 case is also much thinner than the iPhone 5S and would suggest that it will be thinner than the 7.6mm body that adorns its predecessor, and the video also reveals a side-mounted sleep/power button that was seen in an earlier leak.
The rumour mill surrounding Apple’s next smartphone is already in full swing with much of the talk centring on two new smartphones that will both have significantly larger screens than any phone Apple has released before.
It’s expected that Apple will released one version of the device that has a 4.7in display, the one seen in the latest video, and another that has a 5.7in display and is geared towards those that would favour a phablet-style device.
All eyes are now on the company’s Worldwide Developer Conference [WWDC] in June that will reportedly see the two new devices revealed for the first time before they follow the usual timeframe and start being sold around the world in September.
