We now have a pretty good idea of what the iPhone 5 will look like thanks to a variety of leaks and rumors. The biggest leak came from iLab when they made a fully assembled iPhone 5 from the various parts that had been leaked. It’s likely that the phone seen there is what the iPhone 5 will look like so why not compare it to its biggest rival – the Samsung Galaxy S III.
At first glance, it seems rather silly to compare a phone that we know everything about to a phone that’s not even out yet. I would counter that argument by saying that we know everything about the iPhone 5 because Apple’s suppliers and manufacturers are terrible at keeping secrets.
With the use of 3D modeling, YouTube user animatedvisual has created a side-by-side comparison of the purported iPhone 5 design and the design of the Samsung Galaxy S III. While nothing is entirely confirmed, it’s safe to assume that the iPhone 5 will look something like this. See how it stacks up to Samsung’s pride and joy:
After admiring both phones, it’s safe to say that both are admirable for different reasons. The purported design of the iPhone 5 is sleek and thin. It continues Apple’s tradition of making aesthetically pleasing hardware. On the other hand, Samsung’s Galaxy S III just screams power. It has a design that inspires confidence and oozes coolness.
Either way, you’re going to end up with a great phone. We’ll find out how great of a phone the iPhone 5 is going to be come September 12. Until then, just remember the wise words of a random YouTube commenter – “Just pick what phone you want and shut the f*ck up!”
As a bonus, here’s a comparison between the purported iPhone 5 design and the iPhone 4S:
