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.
