  • New iPhone 6 Concept Features a 4.8-inch Edge-to-Edge Display

    Rumor has it that Apple will be launching the new generation iPhone with a 4.8-inch screen which competes with Android smartphones that are similar in size. Due to these speculations, Steve Hemmerstoffer of Nowehereelse.fr and Martin Hajek delivered what they thought the 4-8 inch screened iPhone 6 may look like with a touch of their own creativity:

    • Due to a bigger screen, an additional column of apps could be added to the Home screen and instead of 4 apps on the dock there would be 5.
    • An ultra-thin/sleek design
    • Instead of iPhone’s current Home button, it would be replaced with a clickable display- which was inspired by the clickable trackpad currently on the MacBook.
    • Although with a bigger screen, it would be a 4.8 inch edge to edge display so that the size of the phone wouldn’t be increased proportionally
    • The casing on the back of the phone would have chamfered edges and anodized aluminum coating- inspired by the iPod touch 5G/iPad Mini

    Based on recent speculation, it is probably unlikely Apple will release the bigger iPhone anytime soon and in 2013. The iPhone 5s which is the unofficial name of the next generation iPhone is expected to be no different than the current iPhone 5. The only differences are said to be better camera quality, a faster processor and other improved internal systems.

    What are you looking for in the next generation iPhone?

I laugh like hell every time I see someone talking on what could be considered a tablet lol.
      And they prob laugh at you watching videos on a tiny screen....and considering all other phones seem to be going to a bigger screen what phone would you switch too....the iPhone is too small for my fat fingers.....Apple need to realise not everyone has the same size hands...lol

      Apple will continue to sell out their devices within 2 days of release no matter what..

      Edge to edge is not a smart idea. It's great looking yes but edge to edge takes away any kind of protection for the device. One fall on any corner or side will still crack the screen. And forget about cases like otter box because they will either cover part of the screen or else be much bulkier then normal. If there is a way to do it right I'd like to see it because to me it's gonna destroy phones being protectable. Even bumpers take up part of the screen on edge to edge.

      Exactly, they make a good product with a universal OS. There were over 4000 different models of phones running Android as of May 2012 each with a different version of the OS because every manufacturer does their own tweaking to it. I will buy an iPhone again because of the developer base for apps and their phones work and last more than a few months.

      Computers don't even have 128 GB of RAM. I think you mean storage.


      On a more related note, this design is incredibly ugly. Apple would not go ahead with this because it would step too far away from the traditional look of the already existing iDevices (i.e. the home button is a staple)

      Is the power button round the side ?
      No, they said the bottom where the button is now, will be a clicker like the mouse for the Macbook. Illustrated in the picture you can see how the bottom doesn't have a button or on the sides.

      Yeah I like it too. If they reduce the radius at the corners the screen could go more edge to edge on all sides. But they then have to find how to implement the mic and speakers.

      I think the statement you are making here is pretty accurate. Apple has become far too comfortable with their position, considering the driven success that iOS has had over the smartphone and tablet industry. However, with the dwindling marketshare that Apple has been facing, and increase popularity amongst Android handsets (especially Samsung), it is time for Apple to seduce us into a handset that rises above all others again, and I am not talking about an iWatch.

      I would love it if apple would make a phone that large, or label it the inote, and keep the phone the same. So everyone wins!! Wishful thinking

      I truly hope to God Apple goes this route (yeah! right! I wish). That's my dream iphone in both size and design, also the 4.8 inch screen is the sweet spot for me...anything bigger is way too big for a phone. But!!!!!! I know Apple will not comply as usual. Also I hope they go with Sharp's IGZIO display tech and gorilla glass 3.

      They will just say the new phone is "edge to edge" like that Motorola RAZR. But it will still have a bezel on the sides of the screen. A true edge to edge device would be way to delicate and all the people who already go through a phone every 3 months would be getting a new phone weekly. My phones look like they just came out of the box after I have been using them for 2yrs and I still don't want edge to edge.

      That was my thought as well. I know a select few like to use their iPhones without a case, but I can't stand not having one.

      By the way, where's the home button?
      You didn't read the article did you? This concept features a clickable screen...much like the clickable trackpad on current Macbook Pros.

      100% agree. I love my iPhone 5, and I think it's the biggest apple will go with. When Tim said "there's a perfect size of screen and I believe we've got it" I think he was referring to the iPhone 5. It's sleek, thin, and gorgeous!
      More Koolaid please!!

      Only thing I wish apple would do is actually make the device a true 8,16,32,64 gb device. I know system memory and all that takes up space but u can only hope....oh yea make it a inch wider...

      as nice as that mockup is (except for the back, that's not Apple style for the iPhone) don't expect Apple to go this route totally. Apple dropping the button on the front is like Samsung dropping all of its keys on the bottom of their front screens and going the Nexus (button-less route) style; never going to happen because most customers arent like us, they need object to really on.

      UNLESS........... they brilliantly (and this is a stretch) went Paranoid Android PIE mode with that style of mockup which would be insane VID_20130122_194147.mp4 - YouTube

      Either way as stated earlier Apple will sell their inventory within the 1st 2 days, so it doesnt truly matter what we think, even if we are always right.
