Smaller footprint but bigger and wider screen - that's how the rumoured iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S are rendered in a fresh set of images that showed the alleged Apple phablet without the familiar Home physical button.
In its stead, Steve Hemmerstoffer and Martin Hajek used a mini click button, similar to that in a notebook, that allows the 4.8-inch bigger iPhone to stretch its screen further down, eliminating too the need to add more length.
The concepts of two iPhone screen sizes, no doubt, carry on with the tradition of elegance that Apple is known for its gadget designs, which also incorporates functionality.

The new click button for the 4.8-inch render, according to Gotta Be Mobile, employed "the trackpad design from the MacBook to deliver a clickable touch screen." It sinks when pressed and springs back into place when released.
However, Apple is unlikely to adapt the render, particularly the click button, which GBM said was previously deployed by BlackBerry and was generally scoffed at by reviewers.
Notable of the render is the iPad Mini inspiration that showed the two iPhones covered in anodised aluminium, keeping up with what appears as Apple's current minimalistic approach on its gadget line.
But the Apple signature is there - curved corners, thin device that jibes with its simplistic phone interface.
The renders seem to draw inspiration from earlier analysts' projections that the iPhone 6 will indeed stretch in screen real estate but nor necessarily expand on its actual footprint. To accommodate such adjustments, the Home button will be sacrificed.
Renders of the upcoming handsets will continue to show up as rumours swirl that Apple intends to unleash its new handsets a little earlier this year, experts said.
In an apparent departure from its usual product cycle, Apple reportedly plans to unveil the iPhone 5S on August 2013 while the iPhone 6 will have to wait until the initial months of Q1 2014.
Save for screen sizes and colour variants, not much is known for the next generation iPhones though analysts are convinced that the devices will employ A7 processing chips, originally aimed for a 2014 debut.
Also, the new handsets will showcase Apple's iOS 7 mobile platform, which earlier this year was reported to have commenced test stage.
