4.7-inch iPhone mockup highlights design similarities to iPod touch (with video)

“Italian site Macitynet, which previously published several photos of a fairly good quality physical mockup of the rumored 4.7-inch iPhone 6 based on design drawings from Japanese magazine MacFan, has now shared an interesting new photo set comparing the mockup to a current-generation iPod touch,” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors.

“The photos clearly show how similar the two devices are in design, from the curved edges on the rear shell to the style of speaker holes along the bottom edge,” Slivka reports. “The iPhone 6 at 7.0 mm thick based on the design drawings is clearly thicker than the iPod touch at 6.1 mm, although the iPhone 6 would still be noticeably thinner than the iPhone 5s at 7.6 mm.”

Slivka reports, “The iPhone 6 of course has larger height and width than the iPod touch, given that the body must accommodate a 4.7-inch display compared to the 4-inch display of the iPod touch.”

  1. I must admit that looking at these various design specs I’ve wondered if they weren’t for the Touch, but then, the Touch and the iPhone aren’t dissimilar anyway. If this is what the new iPhone is going to look like, bring it on! I will be upgrading regardless, but I love the look of this mock-up, particularly the rounded edges, it’ll be a comfortable thing to hold, for sure.
