All the leaks we have seen so far are mostly about the 4.7 inch version of the iPhone 6. It is widely expected that Apple is first going to launch this smaller version and the 5.5 inch phablet version will come later on and it is also expected to be delayed due to issues in the manufacturing process. The recent leak shows us a video which compares the front panel of this 4.7 inch variant with that of the current 5s. This video can be quite useful because everyone has been arguing whether the phone would be comfortable enough for a one handed use.
Because Apple isn’t used to bringing such larger display phones to the market, its design has always remained the same over the years. However, now with the major increment in size, the design had to be adjusted. The iPhone 5 was also made larger as compared to the iPhone 4 but it was only a slight bump that made the phone slightly longer not wider. This is not the case with the iPhone 6 because it is not only taller but also wider and this explains why the buttons had to be relocated. The power button is now expected to be placed next to the volume buttons to it can easily be accessed using one hand. The video provides enough evidence that the phone would be comfortable enough for one handed use.
