New iPhone 6 Renderings Based on Recent Info Show Design Changes

After showing off a concept for a sapphire-glass backed “iPhone Air” earlier this month, French Apple website Nowhereelse.fr [Google Translate] and graphic designer Martin Hajek have teamed up once again to create a set renders for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and accompanying cases in a variety of colors, which are based on leaked schematics posted by Japanese magazine MacFan and the dimensions of an alleged case that surfaced earlier this week.

The renderings depict the iPhone 6 as a thin device with rounded corners, with the power button located along the upper right side of the device and rectangular volume controls similar to that of the fifth-generation iPod touch. The case rendered to compliment the phone also contains cutouts for each new design change, along with holes for the camera, flash, and Apple logo on the rear.

Notably, a bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is also rendered alongside the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 4-inch iPhone 5s, retaining the same design properties as the 4.7-inch version. Apple is expected to launch both sizes of the iPhone 6 in the near future, however reports have indicated the 4.7-inch version will launch first this fall as the company will likely delay the launch of the 5.5-inch version due to production issues.

Along with a larger display, Apple’s next-generation iPhone is expected to include a thinner design, new A8 processor, Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and an upgraded camera in the form of optical image stabilization. Apple is also reportedly negotiating with carriers to increase the price of the iPhone 6 by $100.

Adapt or die.

If Steve got on stage today and said the 3.5" screen was the perfect size, people would laugh in his face. 3.5" was the perfect size in 2007, not in 2014. All of your complaining is for nothing, we all know you will go and get a 4.7"(or bigger) phone, like it, learn to love it, and then go and find something else to whine about. Can we just jump to the last part? Do a lot of apple users wear skinny jeans? I have put a galaxy note in my pocked with no issues. I wear dockers, you don't need a fanny pack or man purse to carry something even that size. :confused:

Apple should have been the first to market with a bigger screen phone, not because it's innovative, it's not; it just makes sense. All of you people who are crying about a phone being to big need to go have a pity party with the people who are upset that the chick wheel iPod will go away one day. Adapt or die is equally important to companies and it is to a species.

I hope they bring the glass back. I maybe in the minority though.

My favourite iPhone is still the 4S.

Youre not. Glass back was the most premium looking and feeling iPhone to date.

Glass back? No sale. Even if sapphire. Not after owning iPhone 4 and 5s with the stupid glass backplates.

That render looks so bad. It could never have those big rounded bezels.
