Apple’s iPhone 6s To Challenge Samsung Galaxy Note 5 With Larger Design

The iPhone 6s (which may be called the iPhone 7) may be three months away from release, but leaks have revealed certain aspects of its design. Forbes has the news.

“First up Kuo says we can expect the iPhone 6s to be slightly larger than its predecessor. This comes down to the integration of Force Touch in the display…The knock-on effect is the iPhone 6S will be 0.2mm thicker, 0.15mm taller and fractionally wider than the iPhone 6.”

Business Insider says Apple may add another color choice.

“Kuo predicts that there may be a new rose gold color option, which follows a report from The Wall Street Journal earlier this year that said the company would launch a pink iPhone this year. “

Business Insider notes that additionally, the present gold option may slightly change and look more like yellow-gold while the space gray color may be a little darker. This may make some current Apple fanatics who love Apple’s current colors angry.

BGR reveals how the iPhone 6s design may be similar to that of the Apple Watch.

“Finally, the analyst also said that the new iPhones will be made of 7000 Series aluminum, just like the Apple Watch Sport… Most recently, an Apple supplier hinted that it might be working on 7000 Series aluminum parts for the company.”

Apple’s iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus will be released around the same time as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5. BGR recently discussed Samsung’s upcoming phablet. The website uses other sources in reporting that the device will only come with a 5.9-inch 2K Super AMOLED display. This is a major disappointment for those who thought the device would come with a 4K display — a definite selling point over the iPhone 6s.

Phone Arena says that the Galaxy Note 5 may come with a USB Type-C port. This would future-proof the handset for a long time, since many see USB Type-C ports as the future of smartphones and laptops. The site also claims that the Galaxy Note 5 will also come with a 4100mAh battery and a more powerful chipset.

Both phones are predicted to come with top-notch DSLR-like cameras that not only take great still pictures, but detailed 4K videos as well. Samsung’s phones have been able to take 4K videos since 2013. Apple’s phones have only taken 1080p HD videos since 2011.

Both smartphones are scheduled to be released in September. Which smartphone are you more excited about — the iPhone 6s or the Galaxy Note 5? Let us know in the comments section.
