iPhone 6 rumors: release date, features, design, specs, concepts

A report by Taiwanese website Digitimes announced that the device could arrive in May this year and that it could sport a larger screen, most likely bigger than the 5-inch one found on the current model.

AppleInsider published a list of products that Apple is expected to launch in 2014 and reiterates the larger display theory, claiming the screen could measure between 4.5 and 5.5 inches.

Other possible specs include a next-generation A-series processor and curved glass displays.

Also in line with the bigger display rumor was a report by C Technology who cited several unnamed Foxconn executives that claimed the handset could arrive in two variants, a 4.7-inch screen model and a 5.7-inch one.

Analysts believe Apple isn’t yet ready for mass production of flexible displays, with some suggesting a more plausible 2015 release.

However, Corning recently announced that its 3D-shaped Gorilla Glass can already go into production.

The news has prompted The Wall Street Journal’s Daisuke Wakabayashi to say that Corning’s 3D glass panels will benefit the iPhone 6 and iWatch.

And what is a week of iPhone rumors without the usual concept designs.

The first concept was introduced by SET Solution that presented a hypothetical future iPhone 6C with a curved screen and a square casing.

Lorenzo Rojas imagined an iPhone 6 with an edge-to-edge 4.6 inch Retina display, a 12-megapixel iSight camera and iOS 8.

Lewi Hussey is the latest to offer his vision of the smartphone. The device he imagined comes with a 5-inch edge-to-edge curved screen and OLED Retina display technology.

The concept seems to be adapted to the Air range from Apple, as the unit measures 5 mm.
