It has been widely speculated that Apple may launch a larger iPhone with a 4.8-inch screen to compete with similar sized Android smartphones.
So Steve Hemmerstoffer of Nowhereelse.fr teamed up with designer Martin Hajek to create high quality renders of what an iPhone 6 with the 4.8-inch screen may look like.
They’ve also incorporated some interesting features in their iPhone 6/iPhone Plus concept. Here are some of the highlights:
- Ultra-thin design.
- 4.8-inch edge-to-edge display to ensure that the bigger display doesn’t increase the size of the iPhone proportionately.
- Clickable display instead of iPhone’s iconic Home button, which is inspired by MacBook’s clickable trackpad.
- The back casing seems to be inspired by the iPad mini/iPod touch 5G with the chamfered edges and anodized alumimum coating.
- The larger 4.8-inch screen would allow Apple to add a column of apps in the Home screen and 5 apps in the iPhone dock
Based on the most recent rumors, it seems highly unlikely that Apple will launch the bigger iPhone in 2013. The next generation iPhone, unofficially dubbed iPhone 5S is expected to look exactly like the iPhone 5, but come with improved internals such as faster processor, better camera etc.
Let me know what you think of this concept in the comments below.
