New iPhone 6 Screen Concept Resembles Galaxy Note 3

The latest iPhone 6 concept video to arrive comes with a large screen that dwarfs the rumored Galaxy Note 3, offering up an iPhablet for iPhone users that need a bigger screen for mobile productivity.

While the iPhone 5S release date looks good for next month, the iPhone 6 that many users expect in 2014 is the center of a lot of consumer attention. We know a lot about the iPhone 5S, but the iPhone 6 promises a much wider range of possibilities.

Rumors suggest Apple could be ready to deliver an iPhone 6 with a larger screen and with a higher resolution display, making the second screen size jump since the iPhone first arrived. This new iPhone 6 would also reportedly come with a new design, which is another key request from iPhone users.

In the latest iPhone 6 concept we get a look at what Apple could do for a Galaxy Note 3 competitor. This concept comes from Ran Avni, the talented source of many iPhone 6 concepts, who goes big with this concept.

iPhone 6 Concept Video: Big Screen, Small Size

The iPhone 6 concept video below shows what the iPhone 6 could look like if Apple channels the Galaxy Note 3 or Galaxy Mega screen sizes to deliver a phablet with iOS on board.

iPhone 6 Concept Display

The star of this iPhone 6 concept is the large 6.2-inch display with Full HD resolution, which equals a 319 ppi rating for a Retina+ display. Avni also notes that Sharp would make the iPhone 6 display with IGZO technology. IGZO displays deliver better touch experience and are battery friendly, but are not in a current iPhone.

Covering this massive display is Gorilla Glass 3, a new tough strengthened glass that can better withstand scratches and drops. Corning announced Gorilla Glass 3 at CES 2013, but Apple doesn’t name the manufacturer of iPhone glass.

iPhone 6 Concept Design & Features

This iPhone 6 concept comes in eight colors, like the rumored iPhone 5C. Thanks to the super-thin bezels the overall size of this iPhone 6 concept looks manageable. We’ve seen Apple use a similar trick to make the iPad mini narrow, and we expect Apple to use the same tech to make an iPad 5 narrower, so seeing it in action on an iPhone wouldn’t be too much of a surprise in 2014.

The front of this iPhone 6 concept includes a Fingerprint Sensor and FaceTime camera built-in to the home button area. The iPhone 5S will likely introduce a fingerprint sensor, which could hide in the home button. The sensor and camera would also act as a home button on this concept.

Avni suggests we’ll see iOS 7.1, but odds are a big change like this would deliver an iOS 8 release alongside. He expects an Apple A8X chip with 2.5GB of RAM and storage options of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. This seems a little extreme, but rumors suggest Apple could offer an iPhone 5S with 128GB of storage and new chips top out at 384GB.

Thin bezels help keep an iPhone 6 with a massive display to a manageable size.

From a camera standpoint the rear sensor would jump up to 10MP and the front camera to 3.2MP.

While we don’t know exactly what to expect from an iPhone 6, there are hints of a larger screen. Tim Cook is wary of the quality of current large, high-resolution screens, but improvements could change his mind.

Analysts suggest Apple needs a larger screen iPhone to make inroads in other markets, and if Samsung can deliver success with the Galaxy Note 3 and a 5.7-inch display it could show Apple that there is a significant marketshare of consumers looking for a large screen phone.

Reports from China point to an iPhone 6 prototype with a 4.8-inch display back in December 2012, and it is possible that Apple’s Board of Directors already knows of plans for a bigger screen on an iPhone 6.

    So let me see now… we have a rumored phone concept looking like rumored phone design? Hmm… So can we expect Samsung to sue Apple for design infringement???

    Do you really think Apple is that stupid like Samsung????? Apple is an innovator not a copycat like Samsung.

      Please! Apple is an innovator? They use to be. Not for the past 2 to 3 years. Almost everything new they put on their phones Android and Samsung has already had. Apple is playing catch up. Who is copying who now? That is why Apple is loosing customers and loosing maket shares. People see Android phones coming out with nice quality big screens, faster processors, smooth operating systems, and custom ability. I don’t mean jailbreak either. Android phones have came a long way and Samsung seems to be leading the way. If Apple was innovating then people would be staying with Apple and not going to Android phones or Samsung phones.

      A few examples are some camera options, panoramic pictures, and noise background cancellation on the Iphone 5. Apple made it seem like they invented all of that but in reality Android phones already had that stuff. Siri was a copy of Google talk and other programs like Dragon. Apple has repeatedly tried to patent things that already have a patent on. Just ask Microsoft about that. Apple was just denied another patent because Microsoft had a patent in it back in 1997. I can’t remember what it was because if I did I would say what it was. Then Apple patent things that aren’t suppose to be patent and some how got it patent. For an example the shape of a phone and a shape of an icon (short cut).

      I really do hope Apple comes out with a phone like this rumor. I hope they come up with a lot more stuff then just a size of the phone. If they don’t, then they are still playing catch up. They need to do something or they will continue to loose. Even the ISheep will start jumping ship. You can only run on your reputation for so long.

      Apple has a good solid phone, a good OS, and great support. But who wouldn’t if you basically have the samething every year with slight upgrades and a closed system that only works with Apple products (where Android works with any system and products which makes it more complicated and more prone to bugs). The Android phones are getting way better on the bugs with 3rd party Apps (when Apple doesn’t allow 3rd party apps). Samsung would have their OS updates out much quicker but the phone carriers still have control over that in the US. That is why overseas phones get the updates and way quicker when the US doesn’t. Samsung is trying to change that by taking control over their updates like Google and Apple does. I think Samsung is the big dog right now. As long as they don’t go on cruise control like Apple did, the will be on top for a while.

      does it matter who copies who? no one gives a dang, what matters is the phone and what it does, so far the galaxy does more then the iPhone, the iPhone’s days of glory was left at the past when Steve died. and note that the galaxy has been selling more, and if this concept video is true (which i doubt cause they always have something on it and when the real deal comes out its never how they say it was) then i saw it coming cause the iPhone is to small and people this days like big screen and better batteries, those movie fans and gamer’s need a phone that lasts.

      Glen you fail to mention that Apple copied linksys with the iPhone because when the original iPhone was made in 1998 Apple wasn’t making phones
