A new concept image of the rumoured iPhone 6 boasts features such as edge-to-edge screen display made out of Retina 2 as well as lighter aluminum body.
JohnnyPlaid has published an inventive "iPhone 6" concept design. The new iPhone 6 render shows off a handset that is bigger than the iPhone 5. In addition, the model includes an edge-to-edge display. The concept also includes an all-new aluminum carbon fiber unibody enclosure that makes it 40 percent lighter, and 60 percent stronger than the sixth-generation iPhone.
The creator also goes ahead with the iconic home button rather than the rumoured Mac-like Touchpad button.
Finally, the concept imagines a "Retina 2" display that includes a graphene protective layer. Graphene is the strongest carbon-based material. "A single layer of graphene is virtual indestructible."
Rumour has it that Apple's iPhone 6 will be powered by A7 quad core processor, which claimed to be faster than the previous processor. The processor will be paired with iOS 7 operating system, which is packed with new and better features.
Apple may have planned to bump the storage capacity of its smartphones. iPhone 6 is said to be coming in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB variants.
Concept images claimed that iPhone 6 will be packed with security features. It is reported that Apple is planning to include a fingerprint sensor in Apple devices for added security. Moreover, a new approved patent from Apple will enable users to operate their devices with mere scratches or tap gesturing.
The patent discusses acoustic input devices and basically means that iOS devices could also be used with sound inputs that would be transmitted via the casing that would then correspond with certain functions.
Lastly, a new concept of iPhone is making the rounds showing the device capable of wireless charging. One of the most common complaints with Apple devices like iPhone is the fast depleting battery. However, with wireless charging, users will enjoy longer battery life.
