News & Reviews: Apple iPhone 6
Aug 14, 2013
Concept renderers often predict what may happen in the future when a new smartphone, tablet or other device hasn't appeared just yet. As you can expect some are accurate while some are just plain fantasy. One fantasy concept render of the Apple iPhone 6 has recently appeared showing completely bezel free edge to edge usage of a flexible screen in a super thin housing. While the initial design retains many of the aspects for an iPhone it doesn't really show why anyone would find a use for such a display. Personally, we'd be wondering where to grip the darn thing but it does offer a cool concept render of a customizable phone interface where you could define where the controls on the sides would be and for what purpose.

Smartphone concept renders are often indicators of what the actual smartphone maker would do but these transforming Apple iPhone 6 concept renders by designer Pritesh Chavan is a bit beyond what we're expecting from Apple. Utilising flexible screens that fold out as needed from a 4.2-inch smartphone to a 5.8-inch phablet to a 7.5-inch tablet the concept relies on technology that isn't there just yet. While we agree that it would certainly be cool this would more likely be the Apple iPhone 7 or 8 than next year's Apple iPhone 6. For more information and renders go check out the concept at the designer's site.

Well, we're not saying that this really will happen for the Apple iPhone 6, but someone went that extra mile to bring us some realistic renders of a wraparound Apple iPhone 6 concept.
According to this concept, this wraparound Apple iPhone 6 will have a resolution of 1615 x 1800 pixels, a Facetime HD front facing camera, NFC support and a Lightning connector. The video render also shows some possible gestures and other features with the wraparound phone.

oncept renders often reveal new possible models, and these new concept images of the Apple iPhone may just reveal two brand new models, mainly the rumoured cheap Apple iPhone and the new Apple iPhone 5S. In a side by side comparison with the Apple iPhone, the red coloured version looks like it was made with plastic marking it as the possible cheaper Apple iPhone.

Rumours about new phones constantly crop up and Apple's iPhone 5S is no different. For the first rumour about Apple's iPhone 5S unveiling date, while a few sources have said that it could be in August 2013, some are saying that it could go on sale one month earlier in July. This rumour is based on a prediction by an Apple tech fanzine. Other launch dates include June which would allow it better competition with the Samsung Galaxy S4. If the Apple iPhone 5S were to be launched on 20 June 2013 it would also nearly coincide with the anniversary of the original Apple iPhone's launch (29 June 2007).
