Here’s What A 4.8-inch Gold iPhone 6 Might Look Like [Gallery]

We’ve barely had the iPhone 5s in our hands for more than a month, but is it too early to start dreaming up what the next iPhone will look like?

Recent rumors have claimed Apple will beef up the screen size on the next iPhone to 5-inch, so one of our favorite concept artist, Martin Hajek has released some new concept images of a golden iPhone 6 that sports a 4.8-inch screen by upgrading to an edge-to-edge display so that the size of the iPhone doesn’t get bigger as well.

The mockup is missing Apple’s fancy new Touch ID feature which will undoubtedly be available on the iPhone 6 and future iPhones, but the all-metal backing and thinner design would be excellent improvements to go along with a bigger display, even if you hate that its dipped in gold.

Here are a couple other looks at Martin’s gold iPhone 6 concept:

    It’s a nice concept, and the metal back with the slight curve would probably feel nicer in the hand. However the metal back would be less transparent for the radio antennas in the iPhone.

    Ok.. First.. it’s not going to be a no bezel or near no bezel. ANY mockup that kills the bezel is BS right from start. Not happening.. It kills durability.. The screen would break from knee high.. Not to mention accidental touching from the side would be crazy…

    Not gonna happen… nice try. On top of that I really hate mockups.

    it’s the current gen ipod touch colored gold with a unfeasible screen out front, and it eliminates one of the signature features apple just released (touch id). great work!

    Apple left glass on the back for a reason. They might not be able to go full-on aluminum on the back because it interferes with the antenna. The iPad has enough screen real estate for signal to go throught the glass screen, but the iPhone does not.

    I think that if Apple was to release something with such a thin bezel they would obviously think about the consequences just like they did with the iPad mini last year.

    My best guess is that Apple has been up to an “edge to edge” display for several years now, and they might be ready to implement it to the next iPhone next year. This would be a great way to keep “innovating”, and it would be interesting to see how many smartphones adopt this thin bezel after Apple.

    Here’s further proof that Apple has something similar up its sleeve:

    Looks like a Samsung phone. I know this is a mockup, but please… At least try not copying the number one phone manufacturer on the planet.

  • lumpyah

    its ugly, look like samsung galaxy

  • CrazedLeper

    Where does the fingerprint scanner go?

  • Cadiliac

    looks like iPhone 3

    Ummm. With all the money Apple has invested in the Touch ID, you think they’re gonna drop it after one year? lol.

    The finger print sensor will be there for at least another 5 years

    The all-aluminum back concept won’t work. It looks pretty, but it blocks the phone from receiving radio signals it needs to connect to WiFi and your phone network. This is why there are 2 little glass windows on the top and bottom of the 5s.
