Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s upcoming iPhone 6 might just feature a bigger screen, at least according to new design renderings from an artist. Graphic artist Martin Hajek created new renderings of the upcoming iPhone 6S which shows a thinner, more rounded design, a power button on the upper right-hand side, and rectangular volume controls that look similar to fifth-generation iPod Touch.
The iPhone 6S could also come in gold, space gray, or blue.
The possibility of a larger iPhone
Right now, a larger iPhone is still considered a rumor. The question remains: where did Hajek get inspired to create this design? MacRumors reports Hajek was inspired by the current lineup of Apple phones and supposed iPhone 6 drawings from a Japanese magazine.
MacRumors added, “Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 6 later this year in two different sizes of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches. Recent reports have noted that the smaller 4.7-inch version will ship in the third quarter of 2014, while the larger version may ship later this year or early next year due to issues with the device’s display and battery. Along with a larger screen, both models of the next-generation iPhone are said to feature a thinner profile, new A8 processor, Touch ID fingerprint sensor and an improved camera with optical image stabilization. According to a claim from Jefferies analyst Peter Misek, Apple is also negotiating with carriers to increase the price of the iPhone 6 by $100.”
Apple strives for better design
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) fans are patiently waiting for the next big iPhone. The iPhone 5S hd a lot of significant improvements from the iPhone 5. The most notable updates include an improved camera, Touch ID security, and faster LTE wireless. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) strives for the best and almost always surpasses consumer expectations. It is possible the Cupertino-based tech giant releases a larger smartphone later on this year, especially if the company wants to take customers from Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930).
