Curved iPhone 6 Concept Brings New Rumors to Life

A brand new iPhone 6 concept brings the most recent iPhone 6 rumors to life and gives us a look at what an iPhone could look like with a curved display.

As we move deeper into the new year, we’re starting to hear more and more about Apple’s plans for 2014. The company is rumored to be coming out with a new MacBook Air, an iWatch, brand new iPads, and a new iPhone that is currently dubbed iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 is expected to debut in the summer or the fall to take on the likes of the HTC One M8 and the all new Samsung Galaxy S5 that launched earlier this month.

Rumors have been rampant, but we still don’t know what Apple’s next iPhone will look like. The lack of a full-fledged design has spawned a number of iPhone 6 concepts that attempt to showcase what the real iPhone 6 could look like when Apple debuts it on stage later on this year. While some concepts are based on fantasy or wishful thinking, others pull in actual rumors to give us a realistic look. Well known designed Martin Hajek is responsible for several of the best iPhone 6 concepts and today, he’s back with yet another.

Hajek’s new iPhone 6 concept, shared by Nowhereelse, showcases an iPhone 6 that’s based on a rumor that recently came out of Japanese blog, Macotakara. The report, which came out on Wednesday, suggests that Apple may utilize a curved chassis and curved glass for the display, a vast departure from the squared-off design that’s found on the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5.

The site claims that a trusted source tells them that the device will come with rounded edges similar to what Samsung did with the Galaxy S3 design. Macotakara has a decent track record but at this point, the design change is a rumor and nothing more than that.

That hasn’t stopped Hajek though. The busy designer has quickly pumped out an iPhone 6 concept that is based on this rumor. The new iPhone 6 concept showcases a beautifully crafted concept that utilizes curves around the edges, just like the rumors suggest. The rest of the iPhone 6 concept is based on the concept that Hajek modeled after the alleged iPhone 6 schematics that leaked out earlier this month.

The concept, based on rumors, offers buyers a glimpse at a sleek looking device that comes with an extremely thin design, rounded edges, a large edge-to-edge display, and the change to the volume and power controls that we’ve seen depicted in a couple of recent leaks. And while Hajek’s version of the iPhone 6 may not look exactly like Apple’s version of the device, it’s the closest that consumers are going to get until the real iPhone 6 is released later on this year.

iPhone 6 rumors almost exclusively point to an iPhone 6 with a larger display. Since last year, rumors have pointed to two iPhone 6 models. One model is said to be between 4.5-inches and 4.7-inches in size, similar to the concept seen here. The other iPhone 6 is thought to be somewhere around 5.5-inches or 5.7-inches with HD resolution. If real, it would likely be marketed as a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 competitor.

An iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch display will likely be bigger than the iPhone 5s and iPhone 4s.

A recent report from Reuters casts some doubt on a two-pronged iPhone attack in 2014. The report claims that Apple may have delayed the larger iPhone and that it will be the 4.5-inch to 4.7-inch iPhone and that makes an appearance later this year. A more recent report from The Commercial Times suggests that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 may have been pushed into 2015.

The biggest iPhone 6 leak of the month comes from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, shared by MacRumors. Kuo accurately predicted many of last year’s iPhone 5s features and while he is not 100% on rumors, he is considered to be very reliable. Here is how he sees Apple’s iPhone 6 features panning out:

  • iPhone 6 Screen Size and Resolution – 4.7- inch (1334 x 750) 5.5-inch (1920 x 1080).
  • iPhone 6 Release Dates – 4.7-inch in September, 5.5-inch in Holiday season.
  • iPhone 6 Design – Power button on right, narrower bezels, larger iPhone 6 as two-hands needed.
  • iPhone 6 Camera – No major Megapixel bump, but added image stability.
  • iPhone 6 Specs – A8, 1GB RAM, Touch ID, 6.5mm to 7mm thickness, NFC.

A specific iPhone 6 release date remains out of reach but rumors put the device’s release during the fall. Apple’s last three iPhone models have launched during the fall with the iPhone 4s coming in October and the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s launching in September. While this doesn’t guarantee a release in the fall, it does make one likely given that Apple tends to stick to predictable launch patterns.

The iPhone 6 is expected to be challenged by a number of new devices including the rumored LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4. While the LG G3 could launch this summer, the Galaxy Note 4 is expected to touch down in the fall, possibly in September at IFA 2014 in Berlin, Germany.

      Now I’m not inferring that it is legit but I’m pretty sure that what ever business/system David is referring to he probably started off with little to no income and gradually built it to where it is now.. just saying.
