Is this what the front of the Apple iPhone 6 will look like?
Earlier today, we showed you a picture that allegedly reveals the back of the Apple iPhone 6 dummy. Similar to other alleged photographs of the next iPhone, including one purportedly snapped by a Foxconn insider, the design shows more rounded corners. The leaked picture came from a tweet sent by Sonny Dickson. You might recall Dickson as being a big player last year in the huge number of leaks that showed off the plastic casing of the Apple iPhone 5c. The young Aussie had apparently worked out a system that allowed him to purchase pictures and actual parts smuggled out of Foxconn.

After this morning's tweet, Dickson took to his Twitter account once again, to send out what he claims is a picture of the front side of the Apple iPhone 6 dummy. Like the picture of the back of the unit, we can once again detect the slim, rounded design and what looks to be a larger than 4 inch screen. While it is hard to be certain, the bezels also do look thinner.

While Dickson does have a good track record, we suggest continuing to take these iPhone 6 leaks with a grain of salt. There are so many questions surrounding the next iteration of the iPhone, including the possibility of a phablet version of the device, that it is best to cast a cynical eye on these leaks.

Is this the front of the Apple iPhone 6 dummy?

Is it just my eyes, or does the screen have a slight curvature?

Well it is a plastic dummy, so there's not much to read into this IMO....

You're right. You can see the reflection of the light bend around the side. A few other phones do this; it helps gestures flow more easily.

I was just going to say looks like an M8 with an iPhone screen stuck on the front... Apple sure has become just like any other copycat electronics company. First following in the M7's footsteps with a 4.7" screen and combining that with a M8 design... I wonder if they hired away HTCs design guy, there was a rumor he was leaving the company.

What do you mean they copied the M8's design? The M8 uses the same sort of wrap around metal design on the iPad mini/Air and iPod Touch 5th gen, just with a curved back instead of a flat one. This is to be expected, HTC and Apple made an agreement in 2012 that stated they could use each other's ideas and patents without licensing; they're practically partners.

HTC has taken some design elements from Apple, and Apple used HTC's idea of larger pixels rather than higher megapixels, though they implemented it differently. Apple uses a slightly larger sensor with the same amount of megapixels in the iPhone 5S, while HTC uses the same size sensor with less megapixels on the One M7 and M8.

I actually kinda like the look of this, minus that stupid home button. When I look at the face of my G2, the bezel on the top and bottom is very small. Thanks to the Apple home button, it's always going to be huge as long as they keep it a circle of that size. Time for Apple to think differently, ditch or modify the home button, and make a larger screen phone without increasing the actual size of the device that much. The home button has been there since the first iPhone, time to come up with something new and have the interface evolve like the rest of the phone has.

Starting to look more like a Sammy, guess Sammy must have copied it. Apple better sue because the new iPhone looks some like a Sammy S3. Samsung must have copied.

It looks Line an old LG phone, but I might buy it anyway depending on the material it is made of. Do not want some cheap plastic like the Samsung S5. I do not like to be called a zombie just because I like the iPhone. I agree that iOS is ugly, but the phone works and I have yet yo have any bad experiences with Apple or iOS.

I have tried Lumia 920 and WP8, and it was an experience I won't go back to within the next many years. Android was even worse, because within two weeks of buying the LG Optimus 2x the phone had to be sent back. Had the phone for three month, well I owned the phone, but for only had it on me for three weeks since I had to keep sending it back and even exchanged it. Was a horrible phone and it got even worse because on the day I bought a new phone with iOS. Google shut down my account without a reason.

If the rumors of a Samsung Prime made of metal I might leave iPhone and iOS behind.

I don't know this will be the final design, but it looks the same as previous iPhones. I get that they want to keep their style, but it's very boring now.

And why do they need such large bezels? Why?

Because iPhone owners are rich enough to afford large bezels. It's just like the large bezels on their homes.

So the iPhone is only better if it happens to have a better app that does what you want? Only until someone writes a better app on Android.

I thought that Apple would take the 4. 7 " screen and put it

into a beautiful 5. 1" Metal Body and have an extremely powerful

compact Device and it would be a huge hit.

And Android Designer s/ Manfacturers would realize that SOME of us

want a Pocket Rocket powerful phone about , this size and we would all live happily ever after with some powerful 4. 7 " screens with full specs for Android and.. some .Phablets...

But you are saying Apple is going to make a 4. 7" screen into a

5.5" Tall Phone ? No oooooo ooo.

The 2021 Android Evolution 12 will have a 15" Screen , require two

people to place a call , but a beautiful 8 K screen....
