MacRumors paid designer Ferry Passchier to develop renders of both phones, based on the schematics. We can see the more rounded corners, smaller top, bottom and side bezels, and a power button that is moved from the right side to the left side of the device. And similar to some iPhone 6 cases that we've seen, the flash has reverted back to a round design.
There has also been talk that Apple will release the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 this year, with the larger model coming to the market sometime next year.

Even though iPhone 5/5s designs had its flaws, i think it looks much better than this soap(sounded) design. HTC did same thing and i dont like it either. Even GS3 had same design and it looked just as ugly. Hate rounded phones. reminds me of soap.

Fugly indeed. But then again, just a rumour. 5/5s looks a lot better

We heard several times that the iphone 6 will take disgn elements from the iPhone 5c. The rounded corners could be one of these design elements. But when it comes to design, I trust Apple completely. The iPhone 6 will look great, I am sure of that.

How are you going to add dual flash led to the current iPhone and then delete it from the next iteration of iPhone. This concept is nonsense.

Is it so hard to imagine one led that can give the same light color range as two LEDs. The dual flash thing was a stupid gimmick thing to distract idiots anyway. It needs to be one led that provides a uniform light over a scene and that is what they have done finally. They took the two and combined them into one so it isn't just stupid marketing BS.

I can care less about the concept images and leaks, it's getting rather redundant, mundane, and anticlimactic once the actual device is introduced (M8 / GS5 for example). However, it is rather rational to assume that Apple really has the goal of streamlining their entire product line, from their macbooks to the ipads and finally to the iphone; consistency is the name of the game. Ever since the macbook air was introduced, one of the primary design and aesthetic goals of Apple was to make things as thin and small as possible, hence the much thinner imac, macbook pro, and ipad have been introduced, while the mac pro has been downsized substantially. Thus it's only logical that the next product to have a complete revamp of aesthetics and design is the iphone (kind of like the transition from the iphone 1 - 3 to the iphone 4 and beyond; it went from curved to more square.) My bet is that the iphone will be thinner, have a taper like the new ipad air, and have a one tone scheme on the rear. In about 5 - 10 years from now, were probably going to see a homogenized design scheme of every Apple product, to the extent that if you were to lay every apple product on a table, you can exactly see the consistency of design borrowed from each device onto the next. It's been happening and it will continue to happen. Good or bad? Depends on your taste.

The iPhone 4 and above (minus 5C) is a nice design. If they do indeed go in this direction, it looks like their design team is getting lazy, nothing special about such a generic design shown here. I'd rather see them take the 5S and reduce the bezels to near edge sizes and run with that design than the one above.

If they release a 4.7 inch they better not think of making the price higher then what the 5s is ,why should we pay more because u guys NOW decided to make the screen bigger when androids doesn't charge more. I'm a iphone fan but I do not see myself paying $100 more just for a 4.7 inch screen I rather get a android which I hate. However for a 5.5-5.7 inch screen I would deff pay $100-$150 more
