We’ve finally got another truly interesting iPhone 6 concept, and this one definitely takes us away from the real expectations for the device. The new concept comes from Pritesh Chavan and was written about on Pocket-lint by Elyse Betters.
This iPhone 6 concept is flat
The concept features an iPhone 6 that’s completely flat and shows off the flat design of iOS 7. It’s also foldable, providing the user with three different screen sizes. Users can choose from among 4.2-inch, 5.8-inch and 7.5-inch screen sizes. The 4.2-inch size is just slightly larger than the size of the iPhone 5, and the designer states that it’s still easy to manipulate it with one hand—something Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been concerned about when it comes to developing a handset with a bigger screen.
All three displays are said to have an aspect ratio of 16 to 9, and the iPhone 6 turns itself on whenever the user opens it. There’s also one camera that is said to take care of all of the needs of the users and some speakers on the outside edges of the device to create the feeling of surround sound.
Apple wouldn’t cannibalize its products
The designer referred to the device as a combination of the iPhone and iPad, but of course it is unrealistic to think that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would cannibalize not just one of its major products, but both of them. Also it’s highly unlikely that any tech company is anywhere near being able to produce the type of technology that’s found in this iPhone 6 concept. But you could say that this design is sort of a true phablet because it unfolds to create a bigger tablet but folds down to become the size of a handset.
iPhone 6 release date still up in the air
On Tuesday’s earnings call, some analysts jumped to the conclusion that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) management’s comments regarding the next product launches pointed to a late September launch, but of course we have no proof of that yet. We don’t even know if the iPhone 6 will be out this year or if it will be the iPhone 5S, although it’s beginning to look as if the iPhone 6 won’t show up until next year.
