New iPhone 6 concept (with iOS 8) gets compared to Samsung's Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 5s
iPhone 6 dummy units have been making the rounds lately (see here and here), urging us to believe that they’re accurately representing Apple’s next-generation smartphone. However, since there are still about three more months until the new iPhone is supposed to be officially announced, no one can say with confidence that these dummy units are exact copies of the real handset. And that’s why people still create iPhone 6 concept designs.

The latest concept proposes a 5-inch display with 1,280 x 2,272 pixels (521 ppi) in an aluminum body that measures 136.7 x 66.5 x 6 mm. It runs the brand new iOS 8 - which was announced by Apple earlier this week - and has stereo speakers both at he top and at the bottom. Other features include a 5MP FaceTime camera on the front, a 13MP iSight rear camera with dual-tone LED flash (positioned around the camera), and, of course, a Touch ID-enabled home button.

As you'll see in some of the images included below, this new iPhone 6 concept is significantly smaller than Samsung's 5.1-inch Galaxy S5, thanks to the fact that it has really thin bezels. A 4-inch iPhone 5S was added for the sake of comparison. Also, there's a video of the concept at the end of the slideshow. As always, feel free to let us know if you like (or dislike) what you're seeing.

Glad to see someone is using my "Retina HD" idea (2X current Retina = Retina HD). Hopefully Apple will get back to some sort of "wow factor" with their hardware as the current models are rather stale.

So the 4.7" display will be 1704x960. What about all the other talks about a 5.5" iPhone 6? Is that not happening now?

I've heard they had battery problems with the larger size phone. Rumors are there will only be the 4.7 size screen.

Enough With The iFan Wet Dreams Already... It's pretty much a given that the next iPhone/iPhone6 will look very much like the previous 'dummies' that have recently been posted ad nauseam - HTC One-series ugly cousin exterior, huge top/bottom bezels, same static grid of icons, and odd-ball sub-1080p screen resolution in tow.

They don't care, cause it has the Apple logo on it, to show and pose off.

It has an Apple logo on it, which means it comes with iOS and the usual top class experience and service you get from Apple. That's what the Apple logo stands for :).

In return you get subpar and a medicore phone. In return you pay a higher price for a midrange app launching device. In return you pay $80 for cracked glass which it costs them $5 to buy.

Where did you hear 1080p. Last I heard it is going to be around 680p.

It's always hilarious how really ANY concept of a phone is completely exaggerated, whilst the actual phone is barely an upgrade.

This is what happens when there is no real competition. Everything gets stale and barely changes year to year. There is no competitive pressure to drive innovation. The only truly important thing Apple is missing vs. the competition is a larger, higher resolution screen, so in reality, I would be surprised if they deliver anything more than this. That said, I do hope Apple gets back to delivering something "wow". It's part of their business model to do something like this every 4-5 years, so we are about due for something less mundane than the usual new iPhone model.

Larger screen is the only difference? Umm ok. I can make a long list, but how about customization? IOS8 is supposed to support 3rd party keyboards, so it looks like this might be the start of letting people use the phone how they want to, and not how Apple wants them to use it.

Smartphones have been done now; don't expect anything majorly game changing in this segment now. What's more likely is Apple will wow us in a completely different product category.

I disagree. Phone screens are already being made with cureves, better mobile payment systems, better resolution, more compatible with computers as far as sharing. For almost 2 years now there is a growing trend to move some phone systems to wearables such as a watch. I think eventually the whole phone will be wearable. Not sure what different catagory Apple will go. I look forward to it since it creates new products. But right now Apple is at the end of the train for new technologies and innovations.

Design and specs is what makes the "concept" stands out.

If the specs phone arena and some other tech sites have listed on iPhone 6 are true, then it will be getting some improvements. For example, it's moving from a dual core processor to a quad core, its clocked speed will double to 2.6 Ghz and it'll be coming with a newer 64 bit chip processor. If the iPhone 5s with its dual core processor was able to keep up with the quad core android phones can you imagine the speed improvement it'll achieve with 4 cores? I only hope they increase the RAM as well to allow for better multitasking.

I heard due the energy the larger higher resolution display uses, the A8 is focusing on battery life, not performance.

Better multitasking? You mean being able to truly multitask?

40. number29

The iPhone already does this by means of multitasking APIs controlled by the OS. I'm not sure what effect adding more RAM to the iPhone would do for multitasking; the 5S already flips and switches between apps effortlessly using the task switcher. I can see how adding more RAM on the iPad would help so that switching back to Safari doesn't make tabs reload, but on the iPhone it already doesn't do this.

That's what I'm talking about, I hate when the pages reload on the web since I end up losing what I had written or there are certain sites that suddenly shut down because the iPad mini 2 can't handle it? Last night I was on quizlet studying for an exam and the iPad mini 2 browser shut down several times while I was on it. Also, adding more RAM would also allow for more intense games to be playable on the tablets and phones.

I forgot to mention that adding more RAM would also allow for better integration of the multiwindow experience. You know like on the LG G2 and some Samsung phones and tablets that allow you to minimize apps to view and open several of them at the same time.
