A Japanese blog has posted what it claims are the schematics for Apple's iPhone 6 and a graphics designer used that information to show us what the next iPhone could look like.
Now that Samsung and HTC have both announced their latest flagship smartphones with the Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8, it's time for details regarding Apple's iPhone 6 to heat up. Apple is widely expected to announce two new iPhone models this fall, just as it did last year with the introduction of both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. The company is expected to release a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and a larger 5.7-inch phablet.
It's unclear if Apple plans on releasing both smartphones under the iPhone 6 name or give the larger phablet-sized smartphone a different name. A set of schematics leaked online claiming to show the measurements of both smartphones and a graphic designer took that information and created renderings of what the iPhone 6 could end up looking like.
Nowhereelse and graphic designer Martin Hajek used the schematics' listed dimensions to create 3D renderings of the iPhone 6. The renderings show an ultra thin iPhone that looks like a cross between an iPad mini and iPhone 4/4S. It uses a sapphire glass front and back with matte metal edges that match the current space gray, silver, and gold options found on the iPhone 5s. The iPhone 6 renderings also show the smartphone's rumored edge-to-edge "Ultra Retina" display.
Apple is expected to officially unveil the 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch iPhone 6 sometime this fall alongside the company's highly anticipated iWatch smartwatch and next-generation iOS 8. The iPhone 6 is also expected to see a bump in processor, going from the 64-bit A7 chip found in the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and iPad mini with Retina display, to a more powerful 64-bit A8 processor.
Apple is notorious for its secrecy and likes to keep details about unannounced devices under lock and key. So while these images do a great job of using alleged official schematics to create what the smartphone could look like, we'll have to wait to see Apple's interpretation in the fall.
