Video: iPhone 6 concept with Three-Sided Display that Apple will never build

There are rumors that Samsung may release smartphone with a display that wraps around the sides in second half of 2014.

So Iskander Utebayev has created a new iPhone 6 concept to give us a glimpse of what an iPhone with three-sided display may look like.

The iPhone 6 concept features the same iPhone 5s/iPhone 5 design, but has a display along the sides instead of the antennae bands, which could be used to give access to system toggles and quick launch icons.

Frankly, I am still not convinced we need a device with a curved display. It seems like a solution in search of a problem. And even if Apple or Samsung end up launching such as device, the display would have to wrap around the edges rather than the three-sided display shown in the concept. The display would also have to be made of unbreakable glass as such bezel-less devices would be even more prone to accidental damage.

I would also be disappointed if the next generation iPhone doesn’t sport an all-new design. I love the iPhone 5s design, but it is an evolution of iPhone 4, which was introduced in 2010, so it is high time Apple shakes things up again in the design department. The iPhone 6 concept inspired by the iPad mini/iPad Air design is my favorite iPhone 6 concept so far.

Let me know what you think of this concept in the comments below.
