The comparisons show how the Pro 6 is super thin, measuring only 7.25mm in thickness and avoiding any camera bump compromises and still once again manages to look like the iPhone 6S. Keeping in line with manufacturers now opting for smaller screens, the Pro 6 has scaled down its screen size to 5.2-inches from the Pro 5's 5.7-inches.

The OS is upgraded as expected with a much better processor - the Mediatek Helio X25 which has made its debut on this device. The camera department has not got any upgrade with both front and rear cameras of the devices resembling each other although the Pro 6's camera has got some new features like a 6-element lens, PDAF phase focusing, laser-aided focusing and a circular two-tone flash. The only downgrade in the Pro 6 is the battery which has had to take a dive to keep the phone so slender.
