This iPhone 6 Concept Looks Like Something From Battlestar Galactica

So say we all.
So say we all.

There have been some rumors of both an iPhone 5S and an iPhone 6 coming out this summer, and while I don’t hold out too much hope of that happening–it’s too far out of Apple’s established iPhone release rhythm–this iPhone 6 concept mockup is interesting, to say the least.

The folks at Designed by M, the makers of the AL13 case we reviewed back in May, decided to put together this rather unique take on a possible iPhone 6 design, with the cut-off corners of a piece of paper straight out of Battlestar Galactica.

Why? We’re not sure, but a blog post on the Designed by M website tells a bit more.

This Might Be The Worst Fake iPhone 6 Prototype We’ve Seen Yet [Image]

We’ve seen a lot of nutty fake iPhone prototype mockups. Most of them are based off the whims of some artsy designer, but this lastest concept is a even whackier because it’s a Photoshop rendering based off an actual Apple patent. 

In the future, smartphones might look like this. I sure hope not. What’s the benefit of having a slightly curved display rather than a flat surface? Won’t videos look weird and distorted on a curved display? Plus, what’s up with the volume rocker on the edge of the display? If anything, Apple’s latest patent shows us that while some ideas might look cool on paper, the actual product would be a joke.

If You’re Too Broke To Buy The iPhone 5 You Can Get This Fake One For $5

Upgrading to a new iPhone every year is expensive, and it’s silly to do it just so you have the latest and greatest iPhone when your iPhone 4S still works really well.

If you can’t wait, but don’t have the money and want to walk around pretending that Tim Cook personally sent you an iPhone 5 before it came out, then you can spend $5 and buy one of these great looking mockups.

Chinese Retailers Are Already Selling The iPhone 5, But It’ll Cost You $8,600

I wouldn't pay $8,600 for an iPhone if it was delivered by Tim Cook himself.

We’re still a few months away from Apple’s new iPhone unveiling, but that hasn’t stopped a number of Chinese retailers from selling the device in advance. They’re using the mockup pictures that have been circulating for weeks to make a quick buck from the hotly-anticipated handset, with some asking for as much as $8,600 a piece.
