iPhone 6 design
This is first of two major revisions new iPhone flagship – Apple has overhauled the squared off design which has been with us since the iPhone 4, with the iPhone 6 sporting a more rounded, slimmer body.
In fact it’s just 6.9mm thin, making it one of the thinnest smartphones of the market, and rumors about a protruding rear camera lens are also true.
It’s slightly heavier than the 5S at 129g, while the body measures 138.1mm x 67mm.
The power/lock key has been moved from the top of the handset to the right hand side, making it easier to hit during one handed use. On the left hand side you get the separated volume keys below a mute toggle switch. SEE MORE ON PAGE2
