The Apple Rumor Crystal Ball Gives Us a Glimpse at the iPhone 6

 

An Apple rumor a day keeps us very happy. More than just one? Happier. Mockups to help us visualize what we’ve only DREAMED? Oh, yes.

The latest buzz from overseas hints that Apple is working on a bezel-free, edge-to-edge display for the iPhone 6 with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass. The eighth-generation (does that make anyone else feel old?) model might also have fingerprint-sensing capabilities that could replace the home button altogether. The below renders were created by Martin Hajek based on a concept by Steve Hemmerstoffer in 2013 and above is a concept of the iPhone 6 prototypes from Italian designer Federico Ciccarese.

According to South China Morning Post and their insider scoop, the iPhone 6 will be released in September in two sizes: 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch. The largest iPhone currently is the 4-inch 5S, so we’re looking at a significantly larger smartphone to compete with the “phablet” fad. Oh, and say goodbye to that iPhone 5C for good. Along with the iPhone 6, Apple is rumored to be making a cheaper version of the 5S instead.

Your next iPhone might have a makeover in the (literal) looks department too with rumors of a new, Sony front-facing camera to optimize your FaceTime-ing for reals. Sony is supposedly in talks with Apple to supply more cameras for their products as early as next year.

We’re excited about a larger display, and the hopefully-less crackable glass. Any clumsy friends out there with us?

What do you think of the latest iPhone 6 rumors? Would they make you stand in line over night to get your fingers on one?
