Massive 5.5-inch iPhone 6 phablet mockup compared to iPhone 5s in new leak

iPhone 6 5.5 Inch Screen

As we predicted when we first saw a leaked purported case for the giant 5.5-inch iPhone 6, mockups of Apple’s larger iPhone are starting to sprout up all over the web. Japanese website Rocket News 24 has taken the dimensions shown in the leaked case and has made a 3D printed mockup of the larger iPhone 6 and compared it side-by-side with the iPhone 5s and the contrast between the two is pretty stunning.

As you can see, the 5.5-inch mockup absolutely dwarfs the iPhone 5s, although interestingly you can tell that the larger iPhone is actually slightly thinner than the 5s. Based on the leaked purported iPhone phablet case we saw earlier this week, we can estimate that the larger iPhone 6 will measure in at 81 millimeters wide, 157 millimeters long and 7 millimeters thick, which makes it both larger and slimmer than the iPhone 5s’s dimensions of 123.8 millimeters long, 58.6 millimeters wide and 7.6 millimeters thick.

Given how absolutely gigantic the larger iPhone looks, you might be worried about whether it will fit as comfortably into your hand as the classic iPhone models. The truth is that it most definitely won’t, even though Apple has decided to give the upcoming iPhone models rounder edges to make them feel more comfortable to hold. However, Samsung’s Galaxy Note phones similarly have rounded edges so if you don’t feel comfortable holding one of them in your hands then you might not want to buy a 5.5-inch iPhone 6.

Be sure to check out our previous coverage of leaked mockups of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 being compared to the Galaxy S5, the HTC One (M8) and the iPhone 5s.
