What the curvy iPhone 6 would look like

Yesterday, often reputable Japanese Apple rumor site Macotakara reported that like Marilyn Monroe, the iPhone 6 could be curvy.

Specifically, they said that the iPhone 6 would have curved edges, compared to the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5’s squared edges, as well as a curved display. The result would be a device that felt almost organic in the hand: an important consideration, given that, at 4.7-inches, the iPhone 6 will be more difficult for people to hold.

Today, famed Apple concept artist Martin Hajek has updated his iPhone 6 render based upon the ‘curvy’ rumor, and my god, does it look gorgeous. Check out more images after the jump.

      The Nexus 4 had a curved display at the side edges and it was great for gestures and swiping. However these renders look horrid.

    Curved displays on phones is about as useful as a 3rd t**..

    I see no practical design reasoning for it.. worse, it would interfere with gestures on the screen..

    The only reason for flexible displays is durability.. which means it would still be flat, but be more flexible under extreme conditions preventing shattering.. not ACTUALLY be curved for any visual reasons..

    These rumors are handy just in one cause. Time wasting.

    Man this would be disappointing.

    You guys are saying that the curved, edge-to-edge display would interfere with gestures. Well hasn’t Apple already solved that problem by making iOS ‘smart’ for iPad’s in which the OS detects which touch is intentional and which isn’t (for the edges of the display)?
