The iPhone 6 is starting to take over tech talk about Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) yet again. Does this mean the iPhone 5S has left fans wanting more? Perhaps. One concept creator has taken cues from the new iPad Air to create this latest iPhone 6 concept (via Josh Smith of Gotta Be Mobile).
A super thin iPhone 6
In this concept, the iPhone 6 is extremely thin and has a very large screen. It comes from FuseChicken and is part of a promotion run by the company for its Kickstarter campaign. It is trying to raise money for its Une Bobine for the iPhone 5, 5C and 5S. The new product is a lightning cable which is able to hold up the device during FaceTime calls, whether it’s in a car or other places.
This iPhone 6 concept features a screen that runs almost edge to edge on the sides. This accounts for the bigger screen because the size of the front panel is the same size as that of the iPhone 5S. The screen is 4.9 inches in size. At 4.5 millimeters thick, this iPhone 6 is 40% thinner than the current iPhone 5S.
The device also has an interactive touch panel with “full width TouchID” and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s next generation A8 processor along with an Apple designed GPU. Of course the processor is 64-bit, just like the one in the iPhone 5S and the new iPads. The volume and silent controls are capacitive touch, and there’s a 5-megapixel FaceTime camera with a front facing flash.
When will the iPhone 6 arrive?
Of course now that the iPhone 5S launch is behind us, it’s time to continue the guessing games about the iPhone 6. Will it really have a larger screen as most suggest? And when will it arrive. Some are suggesting in the early part of 2014, which would certainly be breaking tradition for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Apple Guru Gene Munster, however, says it will be next summer.
For now, anyway, all of this is pure speculation and rumors.
