Apple iPhone 6 concept shows off wraparound screen
With speculation that Samsung will be offering a phone employing a three-sided wraparound screen next year, designer Iskander Utebayev thought that Apple might want to follow suit and designed a concept version of the Apple iPhone 6. Using the wraparound screen, virtual controls replace real physical ones, and allow for them to be placed on either side of the screen.

The rest of the phone keeps the current form factor and design of the Apple iPhone 5s. While amazing as this looks, even if Samsung pulls this out of its hat in 2014, Apple is apparently more concerned with increasing the size of the glass on the next iPhone. Just the other day, word leaked out that Apple was working on a 4.9 inch version of its iconic smartphone, for next year. That isn't the first report that we've seen about a larger screened iPhone heading for consumers in 2014.

While a larger iPhone display seems like a good bet for next year, a three-sided wraparound panel doesn't appear to be imminent from Apple. Still, it doesn't hurt to look at the slideshow below and dream.
