Apple iPhone 6 concept video: 4.5 inch screen, no home button
The next iteration of the Apple iPhone is expected to come to market some time this year. One recent rumor has the phone being introduced at a special event on June 20th with a launch taking place a few weeks later. A low-cost version of the Apple iPhone, said to be coming to emerging markets, is expected to launch in July according to the speculation. Last week, Topeka Capital Market analyst Brian White said that his meetings with a "tech-supply chain company" has led him to expect the next iteration of the iPhone to be offered with two screen size options.

You mean like the s4 looks the same as the s3. And the note 8.0 looks the same as the note 2, which looks the same as the s4, which looks the same as the s3, which looks the same as the s3s oops I meant the s4 which looks like.......well you get the picture. Sammy has unified their brand across carriers, as well as with looks...they've learned from apple in that area. The tablet looks like the phablet, which looks like the phones, which look like the even bigger phones, which look like the s3s darnit s4. Galaxy mega 5.8, 6.3, note 2, note 8.0, s3, and s3s "AKA" the galaxy s4, galaxy grand, and the other galaxy phone all look exactly alike. Hmmmmmm I wonder where they got that awesome sells like hotcakes idea. Ohhhhh yeah from apple.

I absolutely will not, and I love that I'm getting under your skin. Apple users are fine as long as they stay quiet, but as soon as they ruffle a feather the droiders get mad. Face it Sammy has emulated apple, the s4 looks just like the s3 and is only an incremental update. But I'm getting one so..... Why you mad bro

Why are changing the topic and talking about Samsung and android? He only said it looks the same, cant apple fan boys take criticism? Anyway, why are you defending your product? Do you really think apple is going to go to your house and give you a medal? Apple only sees their customers as ATMs

Awwww him still mad. Tell you what...I'll read you a bedtime story. There once was an s3 named Timmy, Timmy wanted a brother so Timmy's father Sammy made him an s4 so Timmy would cry no more. Then came the note 8.0 and little Timmy and his brother s4 had one more. Sammy saw these triplets and said let's make more so the galaxy mega 5.8 and 6.3 walked thru the door. Then Sammy said wowwww they all look alike so there was the galaxy mini's the grand and the galaxy win that same nite. And little Timmy said thanx dad and Sammy said ill surprise him with the galaxy note 3 I just had. Good nite mr H...sleep tite don't let the bed bugs bite.

62. darkkjedii (Posts: 12620; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
No I'm having fun with you. I own the note 2 in fact I'm typing this post from it. It's days are numbered though as I'll soon be selling it to my nephew and buying the s4. Chill out bro I'm just having fun with you man. I mean no disrespect just good clean fun. This is what a lot of android nation does to iOS users all day everyday on PA. if I'm upsetting you I apologize and won't respond to anymore of your comments unless you respond to mine. So seriously sorry if I've upset you dude...you seem kinda mad
66. -MISTER.H- (banned) (Posts: 24; Member since: 14 Apr 2013)
Nope I'm not mad! But I'm confused of you, you're 2sided Apple and Android troll!
69. darkkjedii (Posts: 12620; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
No bro I just like those two platforms a whole lot. What makes me a troll? Is it cuz I defend iOS? Is it cuz I defend android? Is it cuz I speak my mind? Who says I have to hate android cuz I like iOS? Who says I have to hate iOS cuz I like android? And remember you came on the article and attacked me. So you're trolling darkkjedii

Why is this video even on here and why is it even news. So some dude makes some 3D drawings of something thinner and bigger of some existing product. Big whoop.
89. TechBizJP08 (Posts: 495; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
haha, you are right dude. they do sell like hotcakes. the designs are almost the same on every unit. It can even confuse a buyer to buy one.
20. AnTuTu (Posts: 971; Member since: 14 Oct 2012)
"And we went back to the drawing board" hahahahahahah
All over again lolzzzz
You know what I mean guys :p this is the worst design ever in the history :)

Seems that even amateur concept designers doesn't expect anything new...

Much better looking than the current model, has a very modern look to it without the home button.
4. Hemlocke (unregistered)
That size, along with the typically great materials and builds, an screaming A7, and a de-skeumorphing of the OS would make for a monster of a device.
14. Dingy_cellar_dweller (Posts: 195; Member since: 16 Mar 2013)
The home button is the easiest way that I can tell if its an iPhone, without the trade mark home button it looks like some other phone.
16. darkkjedii (Posts: 12620; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
No it doesn't, and that's a weak attempt to bash.
45. darkkjedii (Posts: 12620; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Don't be mad I'm sorry I hurt the baby's feelings. How about I buy you a s3s oops I mean an s4
99. israinwet (Posts: 47; Member since: 29 Nov 2012)
do you get paid for this? I see your comments on practically everything.

No, he is actually just as ignorant, offensive, and unlikable IRL so he has no friends or family. Trolling PA is the only thing keeping him from eatiing a bullet and ending the sad cartoon drama that passes for his "life".
106. darkkjedii (Posts: 12620; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Man that's pretty creative mr does. However as I've said before. Life is great, beautiful fiancé great kid, great job, cool car, and great health and fitness. I'll post a pic of me at the gym for u to see lol. Thanx for being my #1 fan mr does. Mean while check out the soon to be mrs in my avatar.
107. darkkjedii (Posts: 12620; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
I'm just wondering. If I have no family then that would mean u have no parents, so how was I born lol? This should be good. C'mon mr does make it good
105. downphoenix (Posts: 2415; Member since: 19 Jun 2010)
Im sure it will still have the huge apple logo on the back to identify it by.
111. Dingy_cellar_dweller (Posts: 195; Member since: 16 Mar 2013)
Firstly I agreed with you, then I realized that most of the iPhones I've seen are in cases.
86. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5954; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
Actually, Apple is going to use a flatter home button (like what Sammy is currently using on the GS III/IV and Note (there may be others, but I have experience with the GS III and Note II). Has Sammy filed a design patent on the oval home button?
3. darkkjedii (Posts: 12620; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Absolutely gorgeous, that design with a revamped ios7 would simply rock. C'mon apple give us something shocking/innovating this year. Whenever apple needs a hit, they deliver a hit...hey apple... It's the bottom of the 9th, youre home, down to your last strike, you're down by 2 runs, you got runners at the corners, the batter hitting 329, you need a hit... Better yet a walk off shot to center.

It does look sick however I don't see a revamp coming in till the iphone 6. I'm really happy where the iphone is right now and don't see anything huge they need to improve right now. ios 7 needs to be good though and that is where they are going to deliver.
13. darkkjedii (Posts: 12620; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
+1 bio. I think software should be the main focus this year, but I wouldn't mind being shocked, and awed with some cool hardware bro.
102. biophone (Posts: 1896; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
I don't think it is in the cards but I would love it as well.
83. vincelongman (Posts: 1699; Member since: 10 Feb 2013)
I think the back design of this concept crap, I like the 2 tone back of the iPhone 5 far more. Also I really like the iPhone 5's chamfered edges as well.
5. androidTaker (unregistered)
Whats the point of concept videos? It's the same UI every year.Even if Apple designers are watching this video, they will never or cannot design phones like what Sony Xperia designers design. Sony's design are the best but the custom software (android)makes them worse and put behind Samsung Galaxy line of phones.
9. darkkjedii (Posts: 12620; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Sure they could design them, they could design a planet if they wanted. It's more of a question of would/will they.
17. Aeires (unregistered)
That's the big question. Personally I think the phone itself isn't going to change this next iteration, they'll save the one after for something like this so they can increase screen size without making a big phone.
They do need something big with iOS 7 though, but even if it involves a cosmetic overhaul as a launching pad for iOS 8, it's a step in the right direction. Making radical changes to an OS isn't an easy task, but getting it more standardized across all aspects would be the logical next step. Long term though, it needs more functionality. Apple needs to step that up, but they'll be selling iRadio in the meantime so it'll give them some time to work on it.
One thing Apple did that deserves credit is how the OS ignores edge touches on the iPad Mini. With that built into iOS, bezel free phones are the next logical step. Samsung made a smaller phone with a bigger screen in the S4, Apple needs that too. Apple needs to get out of their comfort zones and start bringing back the wow factor.

100% agreed, especially your last sentence.

Eye 100% don't agree you dark troll!
7. jonartpop (Posts: 162; Member since: 25 Oct 2012)
It's not an iphone without the home button. It's ugly tbh.
8. biophone (Posts: 1896; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
Concept vids are really cool but I doubt that this is close to reality. Looks awesome though. The iPhone 5s will most likely sport the same design but I have high hopes for iOS 7. Should be awesome as ios 5 was.
