There are just a few days until Apple will unveil their two new smartphones: iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Like we’re already used, the “S” version won’t bring any changes in terms of design, as the Cupertino-based manufacturer will implements changes just under the hood.
But if we take the latest rumors as granted, we could see an exception this year. To be more specific, the iPhone 6S could be even bigger than last year’s 4.7″ model.
Relax, we’re talking just about a few millimeters
Of course, this doesn’t mean that it will be way much bigger. MacRumors received a couple of photos showing the handset built from parts, allowing then to take full measurements. With 7.08 mm in thickness, it’s a not as slim as the iPhone 6, which measures 6.9 mm.
This could be the result of Apple using new materials in manufacturing the case, in order to make it more resistant and avoid situations similar to last year’s Bendgate.
You can watch this video, made by Unbox Therapy, and see how tough the new casing will actually be:
The same source mentions that this comes in line with previous rumors, claiming that both the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus will be with 0.2 mm thicker.
As for the other measurements, height and width, the same Unbox Therapy claims that the iPhone 6S will be 138.26 mm tall and 67.16 mm wide.
It will sport almost the same design, in the end
Therefore, you don’t have any reasons to panic, as Apple’s phones will maintain a relatively compact form factor.
Finally, if a personal point of view is allowed, we’re taking the above mentioned measurements as granted, since well-known case manufacturers, like Spigen, for example, already announced their new models for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.
Also, since the phones will be bigger due to the use of better, stronger materials, we’re more than happy!
