Apple iPhone 6 receives a beautiful but irrational wrap-around screen concept
The display brings few control buttons on the edges of the screen
Recently we announced that Apple might be working on a 4.9- inch prototype that completely supports the large-screen iPhone 2014 theory. However, Apple might be simply experimenting with different screen sizes in order to test their usability and it’s not mandatory for the 4.9-incher to go into production. The theories will never end, as recently the work of Arthur Reis brought us another concept for iPhone 6 that plan on outdoing Samsung. Of course, after Apple performed a couple of deadly attacks towards the Korean Company, they’re not letting it go until they win the war. So far, we’re talking ONLY about concepts of the upcoming Apple iPhone 6 and nothing official.
The new concept, presented on the video you’ll see below holds a wrap-around display and if Apple indeed uses that technology for their upcoming device, they are going to rival Samsung’s future products fiercely. If the rumors are true and Samsung does get a patent for the wrap-around display release, the odds might not be in Apple’s favor and the cold-war between the two companies will climb different stages.
This iPhone 6 design specifies 4.4-inch display that opposes the 4.9-inch theory. It is an unbreakable Sapphire touchscreen with new capacitive home button with improved Touch ID fingerprint sensors. (Let’s hope we’re not going to witness eye-scanning activators featured in smart devices in 10 years. What’s wrong about some good old-school pin codes?) Aside from that, the iPhone 6 concept features a 12-megapixel rear camera with bigger sensors and f/1.8 lens. This means the camera will be able to capture 1080p video at 12-fps. Not bad indeed! Good news is the device is way thinner and lighter than ever and its battery is promised to live 20 hours without charging even if LTE is being used the whole time.
As for the wrap-around tech, the display brings few control buttons on the edges of the screen, including volume-rocker, shortcuts and other controls. What bothers me, however, is how exactly are we going to hold the handset without accidentally pressing at least half the buttons on the side? The iPhone 6 concept is certainly very innovative but irrational on so many levels. What about a cover? There are many things about the design suggesting that the concept might not become reality. What do you think?
