Concept: here's what a luxury, gold-plated iPhone 6 may look like
Gold-plated iPhones existed since the first iPhone model was introduced back in 2007, giving rich customers the opportunity to show off their wealth. It makes sense, then, for us to expect the iPhone 6 to have various gold-plated versions after the handset is launched. Mind you, we’re not talking about the gold color option that Apple itself is offering, but about iPhones dressed in real gold, which are usually sold for thousands of dollars.

Before we get to see a real gold-plated iPhone 6, designer Martin Hajek created a luxury iPhone 6 concept - the 4.7-inch variant - that includes not only gold, but also diamonds (encrusted on the Apple logo on the back). 

The design of the concept is based on the iPhone 6 dummy units that have been showing up all over the Web lately (reportedly, these reproduce the look of the real device). You can check out Martin Hajek’s concept in the slideshow below.

Apple will most probably announce the iPhone 6 in September. Its rumored features include a sapphire glass display, 10 MP rear camera, Apple A8 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a larger battery.

Maybe makes sense to mock because of the preference of having luxury items that are not different from anything other than design, and how they mock poor people by showing how rich they are.

I really really like this Gold and Black combo. I always thought that the 5S Gold should have come with black accents not white... And I really like the way this iPhone 6 concept looks. If it wasnt for that raised apple logo and dots - it would be perfect. Here's hoping apple releases this gold, chrome and black chrome - I wouldn't know which to get as long as the screen side is all black like it is on here (even on the chrome one). Leave the white accents for the "6C" models...

At least this guy doesn't have those hideous bands showing that you see in some of the other concepts.
