Created by Deviantart user Fishbertus, this iPhone 6 concept is the same size as the iPhone 5, but this time the screen takes up the entire front of the phone. We’ve got a big display, probably around 4.5 inches or more and an Ultra HD interface.
Apps are “themed” and the handset’s UI is highly customizable. The Home button has now become a touch button and you can place the apps under the toolbar if you want, or at the top if need be. Wallpapers now get a 7+ megapixel area for animated shots and interactive wallpapers, like on Android. I guess that there may be some hardcore hardware features on this model.
Something like a 13 megapixel camera possibly made by Sony, an 8 core Apple AXX CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 to 128 GB of storage, LTE+ (crazy, right?) and en edge to edge display with 2K resolution. All of these specs are speculated by me, but they seem realistic for the end of 2014.
Straight from our source at Mobileaks comes a new iPad Mini 2 image, a render to be precise. Last I heard, the Retina iPad Mini was delayed, because of some production problems of the display panels.
Anyway, the iPad Mini 2 rendered by Mobileaks features a 7.9 inch screen with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels and 324 pixel density. There’s an Apple A6X processor inside, an 8 megapixel camera at the back and a 2 megapixel front shooter. We’ve got either 16, 32 or 64 GB of storage and a case that’s 7.5 mm thick.
The edge of the display is even smaller than the one on the iPad Mini, if you ask me. It appears that although the diagonal is similar, this model will actually be more compact than its predecessor. By the way, the CPU inside it should sound familiar, since it also powered the iPad 4. So, are you impressed?
Martin Hajek imagined a new type of watch, the iWatch concept with a big piece of curved glass at the front. The images were used in the MacUser magazine, the April issue. As you can see, the volume buttons on the side look the same as on the iPhone.
As you can see, the image of the watch itself and the dial is the same with the one in iOS, the one borrowed from the Swiss Railways. We also have a buckle here, maybe made from leather or some other fancy and cool material. Obviously, the body of the iWatch is made out of metal, probably anodized aluminum or some other aluminum alloy.
I’m particularly intrigued by the small holes on the side of the device, with a purpose I really can’t figure out. I’m very curious what the back of the watch feels like on the user’s hand, especially considering that the iPad and iPhone’s back feels cold most of the time. So, what do you think of this iWatch concept?
Today we have two stunning iPhone concepts to show you, both coming from the same source. I’m talking about the iPhone 6 and the iPhone Mini, pictured below and based on a true edge to edge display design. Actually such a design is not that different from the Sony concept I’ve shown you yesterday.
The case is also different, with an all new aluminum carbon fiber unibody enclosure. The combo between aluminum and carbon gives the iPhone 6 a 40% weight reduction from the iPhone 5 and a 60% strength increase. The device won’t shatter when it’s dropped and it will never dent. As speculated before, there will be no more Home button and iPhone 6 with iOS 8 will allow the user to rely on multi touch gesture, that will be done on the lower touch area of the handset.
You will tap to go home, hold for Siri and double tap to multitask. HomePad gestures are 100% customizable and by the way you can hold the Home icon for 2 seconds to activate Siri. The new iPhone edge to edge measures 7.6 mm in thickness and weighs a crazy 67.2 grams. Its specs include two 2.8 GHz quad core Apple A7 processor, 4 GB of 1600 MHz memory, and a 2800 mAh battery. It will come in 128 and 256 GB versions and it packs a 4.5 inch Retina Display Widescreen edge to edge with a 754 x 1296 pixel resolution.
Upfront there’s an 8 megapixel camera for Facetime and at the back we’ve got a 20.2 Mp camera with 2K video capture and F/1.8-4.9 aperture. The camera even does RAW image capture. What do you think about this device and also what do you think of the iPhone Mini?
iOS 7 is about a month away from being unveiled at WWDC 2013 and till then I guess we have a few more concepts of the OS to check out. As you know probably, the team behind the software is now lead by Sir Jonathan Ive, leaving behind the work of Scott Forstall. This means a new approach to a new iOS…
Till that comes we get this iOS 7 concept, based on simplicity and a new set of icons. Simply Zesty created this project, or better said their Art Director, Philip Joyce did, who also came up with the video below to showcase the new UI. The lockscreen in iOS 7 keeps the slide to unlock mechanism, but now it takes up less screen estate and it’s placed at the top of the screen, in order to give options like Siri, camera and maps more room on the screen.
The colors of the overall UI are now more vivid and each and every icon has had a revamp. The iPod app UI reminds me of Soundcloud, plus this iOS 7.0 concept also features a widget Centre, that allows the user to customize the homescreen with widgets that seem cooler than those on Android. Siri also gets smarter and it’s more deeply integrated. What do you think of this concept iOS?
It’s been too long since the last iPhone concept, but luckily we have a new one right here. It’s called the iPhone 6 and it was created by Arthur Reis. It sounds more like an iPhone 5S, if you ask me, considering the specs are basically upgrades of the iPhone 5.
The back design is totally the same as the iPhone 5′s and the front is not that different. We’ve got a new Home button on board and the option to touch anywhere at the bottom of the phone, in order to reach the homescreen. Basically it’s like a Magic Trackpad, one that was mounted on an iPhone. This pretty much cancels the use of the Home button if you ask me.
The iPhone 6 is also thinner than the iPhone 6, by 20%, making it 6.1 mm in waistline. The device is promoted as “everything proof”, as mentioned in the video below. It probably means it’s water, dust and shock resistant an another feature worth mentioning is the 12 megapixel camera at the back with F/1.8 aperture and iSight Pro sensor. Overall the design is not tha different, so these minimal changes make me think of the iPhone 5S…
You’re probably aware of the Apple patent that was recently filed for a curved wraparound screen on a future handset, presumably the iPhone 6. Well, T3 took the story and turned into the beautiful concept iPhone shown below, plus the video at the end of the article.
Of course, Apple does have a huge amount of patents, so they may end up not using this one, but why not let our imagination run wild? A recent patent they filed details a wraparound AMOLED screen on a smartphone and a design that looks like the fourth generation iPod Nano. The patent says that the screen can be “unrolled” or “unfolded” thanks to a special hinge-like mechanism.
The documents include facial recognition, gesture control, layering of screens to create 3D effects, all of them very cool sounding technologies. The T3 iPhone 6 concept features a resolution of 1615 x 1800 pixels, a Facetime HD 2 megapixel camera at the front, NFC, lightning connector. In the video you can see gesture controls and virtual buttons on the side, plus a new multitasking system. FIFA sure looks great on the device, as do wraparound panoramas. Will this model ever become real?
In lack of the usual avalanche of iPhone concepts, we’re stuck with searching such devices all over the web. This is the way we’ve found the interesting design created by Eric Huismann, a German designer who imagined that the iPhone 6 will have a transparent display.
This handset is 17% thinner than the already very thin iPhone 5 and it comes with a 10 megapixel camera with Full HD video capture. Inside it we find the Apple A7 processor and the screen keeps the 4 inch diagonal, but it’s transparent this time. We’ve seen a see through iPhone before, but not in such a detailed view.
Keep in mind that the display is completely transparent, while the bottom and top areas stay opaque. iOS 7 is present on board and there’s even a promise of a November launch date from the designer. There are many advantages for a transparent iPhone, like an improved camera viewfinder, a ton of augmented reality apps and cooler effects to play within the interface. Will this device ever exist?
If you follow the recent Apple patents, you’ll run into a very interesting one, that shows a curved iPhone of sorts. Now that patent has been turned into the render you can see below. It was said to actually be a flexible iPhone display, so here it is:
Nickolay Lamm is the creator of this concept, a mockup of an iPhone with a curved display. Apple’s recent patent refers to a wraparound AMOLED display, that’s certainly futuristic, but it may one day be adopted. As you can see, the handset loses both the Home button and volume buttons and just like Apple said in the patent, the device provides “illusion of depth perception that imitates a 3D experience”.
Frankly speaking, I think this is more of an iPhone 7 material or even further, since even Samsung with its colossal power of innovation stays away from such formats for now. I have to say that this model doesn’t seem flexible and that it’s kind of bulky compared to the patent below.
Martin Hajek is one of the designers who stuns us with visually detailed concept phones, like the BlackBerry one or the iPad Mini one. Today we’re showing you his vision of the iPhone 6, inspired by Steve Hemmerstoffer from Nowhereelse.fr.
The idea here is to design an iPhone of 2014, one with a 5 inch display and one that ditches the physical Home button. And then came the magical idea of implementing a touchpad below the display, like the MacBook trackpad, covered with a glass plate. That mechanism now replaces the Home button with the ability to click on said touchpad. The design seems inspired by the iPad Mini and the current iPod Touch, if you ask me.
iPhone 6 relies on an unibody aluminum anodized black or gray case and it comes with a Retina Display that’s borderless and… clickable in its lower area. I can also feel a bit of the iPhone 3G/3GS generation with the slightly curved shape of the device in the upper side and at the back. I also imagine that the resolution is huge here and we a special Apple A7X or Apple A8 CPU inside.
