Apple iPhone 6 concept shows luscious edge-to-edge display, even thinner body

Apple’s next iPhone is not expected to arrive until at least September, but leaks and rumors have really accelerated in the past few weeks, and all agree on one thing - Apple’s alleged iPhone 6 will feature a 4.7-inch display. We have seen leaked schematics, molds and cases, and now, French publication NoWhereElse has commissioned designer Martin Hajek to use all this information to conceptualize the next-gen iPhone.

What we get is twenty high-quality concept images that put all we know about Apple’s next iPhone in a beautiful visual wrapper.

The concept shows an iPhone 6 with a nearly edge-to-edge display, with very minimal side bezels. This is the main reason why the next iPhone does not look hugely bigger than the current iPhone 5s - the smaller bezels allow for a bigger screen at just a slightly larger physical body of the phone.

The drawings also show the expected change in the design - with smoother, curvier edges. The concept also paints a picture of a new iPhone that is a spectacular 20% thinner than the already slender 5s. Finally, the back of the phone also no longer features a two-tone design, and the plastic cap on the top and bottom is gone. Take a look, and let us know: would you buy the iPhone 6 if it looked like this?

There's nothing special about it. it looks like they took the s4 or s5 and changed some buttons, put on a different label and called it new. Apple, please read this, quit stealing ideas. With almost 1 million employees there has to be someone there with an original idea. What makes me want this over any other phone? Sell me on it. If your next phone looks like this I might as well just get the s5 next. They're almost identical. And the s5 processor is going to be better most likely!

The design is good! Most of you don't like it cuz its not developed by apple! If Apple releases a phone with this design some day in future, you will rush to buy it!!!

Apple fails again .. Even if this is not the new Iphone expect it to not even come close to matching the latest android phones in specs.. The galaxy s5 processor is a quad core 2.5ghz and the Iphone 5s is 1.3ghz .. My 3 year old phone has better specs than the newest Iphone? This says a ton about apple ..So if you buy a new Iphone pat yourself on the back for paying for a brand name and buying an Old geezer phone .. Super simple and you cant even plug an sd card into it.. Wake up apple !! Upgrade your phone to match the phone specs of the top phones ... Stop coming out with new phones and barly changing anything at all .. I guarntee the Iphone 6 only has a 4.5 inch screen at the most. You guys are crazy if you think it is going to be so much better than the iphone 5.. Remember all the hype surronding the design of the iphone 5 .. What a joke with a 4 inch screen.. Galaxy s5 will destroy the iphone 5s in benchmarks everytime

Hey, Dave, guess what the iPhone 5s retail price is >$400 while the Galaxy phones are close to $800. It is retail price but double the cost between the phones. I'm not sure. $415 for 1.3 vs $800 for 2.5. I'm not a math genius but from a straight numbers perspective iPhone is cheaper per ghz. I'm not an apple or android fan. I like both but I'm a Windows person and honestly iPhone wins. They are slower but you cant tell. iPhone customization sucks but its cheaper. iPhone is cheaper in every sense but in comparison you're paying just as much for the s5 for what youre getting. Sorry to bust your bubble but that's the numbers. Really its just preference. Each to his own. If someone wants to pay for it let them have it. It may be stupid from your perspective, but it's their choice. And no, I don't insult only Android, I try to point out the flaws everywhere. Apple and WP included. Just look below.

To bad they fail everywhere else .. No sd card for one.. For 2 you can only install apps from apple app store . 3 they constanly screw up things so you have to update . The on;ly reason they do it is to keep the jailbreakers having to keep finding new ways to jailbreak. 4 Thier hardware specs barely compare to phones that are 3 years old .. Very outdated ..Are you serious they dont even list the speed of thier processors because they dont want you comparing it to other phones. The iphone 5 S has a 1.3 ghz processor my galaxy S2 has a 1.5ghz and its from 2011 . I dont get it ..Why do you want to pay more for way less. ? They always fail and they do it on purpose so they can keep selling you new phones that are outdated .. Enjoy your brand new outydated phone. Galaxy S5 has a 2.5ghz quad core processor and in some cases a 8 core .. It will be at least 5 years befor Iphones have these kind of specs

Looks nice. Curved would be quite comfy to hold, I found my 5S was comfy due to its size but the edges were a little too square and kinda made you want to adjust after holding it for a while (though if you put a case around it that fixed it). My Lumia 1520 feels nice with its curved back, though the corners! Ouch! This looks kind of like a mix of 3GS and iPhone 5. A good combo. I look forward to seeing what they come out with, for myself, its a two horse race. Windows Phone or iOS, so I look keenly over at what they are up to. I have tried Android devices on and off and do not care for them at all, especially not Samsung's constant cycle of tat. But each to their own. Not sure why many users on here seem to have a stick up their arse over Apple though.

Prepare to be upset..If history says anything the iphone 6 processor specs wont even come close to matching the top phones out there. That is why they dont even list thier processor speed in thier advertisements because its embarrassing ..Please tell me why you would buy and iphone other than for the sake of owning an Apple. No sd cards either .. Apple does not want you having control of any of the cool things you can do with your phone which would be ok if you just rented the phone from them .. But you own it ..

I like it much!!! If the OS would be not that limited, one day I would go for Apple.

Yes for sure but it will always be limited and will never match up to a rooted oveclocked android running a custom ROM

Huh. Making the iPhone even more vulnerable to cracks than it already is, and then adding SAPPHIRE glass on top of that? Use Gorilla Glass 2.

Recents news ... 1000MaH battery for all day usage nice! Apple did it again!

74. spirodave

Posts: 9; Member since: Apr 20, 2014

Yeah they did it again . They failed to realese a device that doesnt even come close hardware wise to matching any of the top devices out there .. They did it on purpose so they can keep selling you new outdated phones. Sure youre gonna get a full day on 1000mah battery .. Becase the processor is so slow it dont drain your battery.. Its like a 4 cylinder toyota sure it gets good gas mileage but at what cost .. I would rather have a bigger better phone with a bigger better processor and bigger battery and still have good battery life .. So which is it a toyota for $600 or a Corvette for $600. Why pay the same for less ...? Apple fans You guys have no common sense at all ... And apple is loving that

I wonder when the tech sites will realize that less is more. This has been a year of unbelievable pre launch frenzy followed by post launch duds. I say duds because the actual products while good are closer to reality while the hype is in la la land. Everyone expected the S5 to feature QHD display, metal chassis, wash clothes & drop their kids at school. Ditto the M8 & Z2. The reality is that sometime last year smartphone technology reached its peak. A flagship from any brand today outguns a PC of 3 years back. Designs have matured & there is only so much that you can improve upon something that is already very good. I think bendable or folding displays will be the next big thing in m9bile technology. Until that happens, whatever the hype, in reality we are going to see only small refinements in successive iterations of smartphone lines.

While you might be right about this ..It still dont change the fact that apple locks these phones down so tight it leaves no room for customizing and the hardware is so 3 years ago. Except 64bit arch. No Sd card and having to use itunes to sync music.. And jail breaking helps it still doesnt compare to root access on android . I just dont like how apple doesnt want you to have full freedom to do what you want on something you own. Not having a sd card is an example. It force more people to buy music from their store and the list of other things goes on and on..Open source software rules .. Its for the people and apple isnt

I've been setting these renders from apple fans for so many years. They just keep on searching for things on their beloved iPhones which can already be found on android handsets. I advise them to wake up to reality. iPhone phablets are just not gonna happen. Just end your suffering and get a Samsung or an LG.

I know .. They are stupid to think the Iphone 6 is even going to come close to matching the specs of any top of the line android .. No sd card .. You can do anything with this garbage . I love rooting my phone and using custom roms.. Open source is awesome .. I guess people got brainwashed into thinking apple is top knotch.. They like to pay way more for less.

Needs to install custom rom because manufacturer and carrier raped the stock one...

Looks like an LG and half a dozen other bland looking phones. Maybe LG should take'em to court.

Interesting concept, but I doubt Apple goes in that direction. Too S5-like. I do hope they do something with that massive forehead and chin.

I can see their marketing phrase already: "The thinnest iPhone yet!"

Im not going to buy a phone like this if it's worth more than my hand!! Sony or Nokia are my choices now. Thin phones are bad, thicker phones are better

Well, I hope that is like not going to be what iPhone 6 could look like. It doesn't have that premium look as 5 or 5S. Me "no likey" that bland looking back, nor the overly-rounded corners. Doesn't look that 1000$ worth, IMO. But I give this person, who created this, a cookie. Concept render looks nice and pretty realistic looking to me :P

It's great to see Apple making their own version of the HTC One M8. I guess Apple can call theirs the iOne A8. Just copy HTC, remove the ph from phone, remove the second camera, and Apple is all set for innovation in their the next generation products.

you know this is a fan based concept right? Personally, i hope it doesnt look like this.

Hmm, I can't help to notice that the power button is placed where Samsung places theirs. I see another lawsuit looming.
