Apple iPhone 6 is not yet out, but its concept video are popping every other day in the tech media world. The Cupertino-based tech giant is set to announce its next-generation iPhone in the market soon. The industry hopes to see an iPhone 5S this summer. As per various reports, the iPhone 5S, is said to have similar packaged design. It will have beefed up internals.
On the other hand, Samsung has a gem on the table - Galaxy S4. The South Korean giant says the Samsung Galaxy S4 is not about hardware, it is about the user experience attached to it. They basically want to say that the embedded software attached to it is out of the world, and even Apple does not have anything like this on its iPhone.
Analysts speculate that Apple is testing iPhone 6 designs in its R&D lab. Recently, Apple filed a patent that describes a mobile device with a display that extends over the sides of the phone, essentially creating a wraparound screen. The company will likely first introduce an iPhone 5S with the same body as the iPhone 5, but the design of the iPhone 6 remains up in the air.
Based on the patent UK based magazine T3 has come up a 3D model of iPhone 6. The video is quite interesting, if you love to speculate rumors. The display in the mock-up extends fully around the phone so that there's a touchscreen on both the front, the side and the back of the device. The display will have 1615 x 1800 pixel resolution, which is an upgrade from the 1136 x 640 resolution on the iPhone 5.
Further, the display wraps around the left edge of the phone, which is where gesture controlled buttons replace the mute switch and volume buttons. Other uses of the screen include iOS multitasking with one app on each side and the ability to view wrap around panoramas on the curved display. With the curved display, users can watch TV on one side of the device, while play a game on the other.
Undoubtedly, the concept is sane, but in reality it is not sellable. What T3 has come up is more of a gimmick, and a bit exaggerated too. It also features a 2-mega pixel camera.
The lower base of the handset is absolutely same. This shows Mr. Cook and his award winning team is running out of ideas. And the best part of the design is somewhat believable in future device - gesture control virtual buttons on the next-gen iPhone 6.
Other highlighted features depicted in the video are the coming of NFC, and lightning connectivity. What is known at the moment is that the next-gen iPhone is coming in the month of August with iOS 7, A7X processor, and connectivity with iWatch. Stay tuned to GizBot.
