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?
