iPhone 6 compared to HTC One M8 and iPhone 5 in new photos

The Space Grey iPhone 6 model has been spotted in some high-resolution photographs alongside the HTC One M8 and iPhone 5.

According to the new reports, this iPhone 6 is a real beta device and is a strong representation of what we’ll see when the phone is officially launched later this year.

This is only a dummy unit and therefore is missing the Apple logo on the back and the device won’t actually power on, but it gives us a good idea as to how the iPhone 6 will compare to its predecessors and HTC rival.

Thanks to its potential 4.7-inch display size, the iPhone 6 falls comfortably between the iPhone 5S and HTC One M8 in terms of height, but actually looks around the same width as the 5-inch HTC One M8.

Like previous iPhone 6 dummies, it looks like the upcoming iPhone could ditch the dual-LED TrueTone flash introduced with the iPhone 5S. This used a white and amber LED to offer more natural looking photographs, especially for portraits.

The iPhone 6 clearly has more rounded sides than the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5S, appearing much more like the iPod Touch in design.

From the looks of this model, it also seems the display bulges out slightly from the body. With the latest iPhone modes, including the plastic-bodied iPhone 5C, the screen is flush to the rest of the body and can’t be see to protrude when the phone is held at side profile.

This may be the case because Apple is trying to slim down the side profile of the iPhone 6, reportedly to just 6mm. Perhaps the design has been tweaked so that the phone can still accommodate all the necessary internal hardware, without compensating on thickness and battery life.

The iPhone 6 is expected to arrive in September running the new iOS 8, potentially launching alongside Apple’s first wearable, the iWatch.

The iphone always looks nice, I wish they get hardware updated to match standard high end smartphones, at least 1080p resolution.

Finally common sense prevails and Apple discovers lagrer phones are a great idea. 4.7" is now as small as I'll go, but much prefer 5-5.2". The G G2 is perfect size and no bigger than most others 4.7-5" phones. This would be the first iPhone I would actaully even bother to look at, although I'm more inclined to see if they release the rumoured phablet. iOS 8 looks a big improvement now it adds many things we've taken for granted in Android.

I already don't like the weight of a 5S with good case. I won't be getting the bigger model.
