Could This iPhone 6 Be The Most Accurate Mockup Yet?

iPhone-6-Coque-Concept-012_converted

Well-known Dutch designer and concept artist Martin Hajek has created a new iPhone 6 rendering, which might just be the most accurate one to date.

Hajek had previously teamed up with Nowherelse to create a stunning mock-up based on the recently leaked schematics discovered by Macotakara apparently showing the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants of the iPhone 6.

With the recent case leak, Hajek revised his designs to show everything we currently know (or think we know) about Apple’s next iPhone.

Martin Hajek’s mock-up depicts the current iPhone 5s next to the 4.7 and 5.5 inch iPhone 6

Hajek depicts the iPhone 6 as extremely thin, featuring rounded corners, a larger display, and a new Sleep/Wake button, which has been moved to the right side of the handset.

This was based on a research note from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who suggested that Apple is going to move the button from its current position on top of the iPhone to help with one-handed use of the larger smartphone.

What do you think of Hajek’s designs? Is this what you hope the iPhone 6 will look like?

    Probably yea, but i still cant get away with the fact of 5,5 screen. Id rather have them coming only with 4,7. Since the Jobs, apple has changed a lot.

      Since Jobs, the market has changed a lot!

    • Aqua Angel

      Agreed, all my iphone are now for sale and most newer apps are buggy, maverick is buggy. just wish jobs was still alive. new macs? i don’t think so. New ios and OSX? Nope. will be in my stone age from here on out

  • Carlos ⌘ Franco

    I’ve used both 4.7 and and 5. I have smaller hands and 5 is my limit and a good balance for me, 4.7 works also. 5.5 would be too much for me to handle one handed which is my must have.

    Hey it looks just like a Samsung galaxy! Pass.

    • Dudić Miša MA

      Apple is obvously chasing Samsung. Me, myself is going for Android .

      • Shadowelite123

        Apple is not chasing samsung, this is mockup concept design made by the everyday ordinary consumer, not Apple.

    • Shadowelite123

      how does this even look like a samsung phone? it no where resembles a galaxy. the only similarities between this mockup and a galaxy, is display size. a display size is not a comparison to use because then you would be saying that other large screen smartphones look like galaxies. So again, this does not look like a galaxy.

  • JustReboot

    Looks great. Vertical spacing on icons appears off (first row sb closer to top) and space between rows sb tighter / regardless a gorgeous mockup :)

  • JustReboot

    BTW / I actually switched to the iPhone (from a Samsung s4, then a LG G2) to have a SMALLER screen / even the 4.7 may be too BIG for me / by the way average guy / average size hands / just think these screens are getting too big for a PHONE :)

  • NeilParkerTX

    I’ve got to agree that it’s probably close but I just don’t want anything bigger than the 5/5s. It struggles to fit in my pocket as-is and the 4.7 will only make it harder.

    • Shadowelite123

      then just get a 5S or pray to Apple to release options to have a 3.5 inch display, a 4 inch display, and a 4.7 inch display, then leave the 5.5 inch iPhone in a separate category, like iPhablet.

  • ianthetechman

    If it is then its pretty uninspiring really.

  • Rocky Carr

    COMPLETELY inaccurate! The displayed time is supposed to be 9:41AM.

  • Prajeth Nagaraja

    Looks more plastic. If Apple is planning to do a design like this, then I’d rather buy the Nexus 6

    • Shadowelite123

      Its not plastic. its the same metallic material that Apple uses for the chassis for the current iPhone. this is a concept not the real thing

      • Prajeth Nagaraja

        I know it’s a concept, but if they ever do plan on doing anything like that then I would settle for a Nexus 6. But yeah, Apple is more than likely to use metal for the next iPhone, as usual.

  • Barrett Jasper

    Not bad but they better be 5.5″ minimum or at least have the option for a larger than 4.5″ as the rumor mill has said. 4.7 or 5.5″ offering. personally 5.5″ is my preference. Anything under 5″ is getting old I think. Dump the plastic and think “HTC One” style metal casing and Note 3 size option or something somewhat close as an option. Add some decent speakers too like HTC did. And for the love of God add an option to add columns and rows and shrink icons sizes up or down. they are way too big as is stock. We shouldn’t have to jailbreak them to customize them.

    • Shadowelite123

      what plastic? the iPhone uses metallic parts not plastic. they haven’t used plastic for the iPhone design since the 3GS. The apps are just fine and don’t need to customize them in any way. Not even android does that and I have an android phone so i know

      • Barrett Jasper

        I’m saying….not to use any. Not that they Are. All phones. And the 5 has plastic.
