iPhone 6 concept designs keep popping up

A steady stream of iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 concept images and videos continues to materialise

While it might seem as though Apple pumps out a new iPhone or iPad every other month, the pace isn't fast enough for some. As a result, a steady stream of iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 concept images and videos continues to materialise, including a couple of new ones that envision Apple's latest designs looking more and more like some of Samsung's products.

Toronto's Peter Zigich has posted a slew of images of what he envisions the iPhone 6 looking like. Among his creations, Apple smartphones that approach the 4.8-inch screen size of Samsung Galaxy S3 phones, with space freed up by pushing the home button to the side of the iPhone.

Zigich writes on his blog: "iPhone 5 is still the best looking phone today. Competition is not standing still. Some nice 'premium' phones are coming out from other companies. It makes me wonder what will Apple do to stay on top, and beat out the competition."

Zigich envisions Apple possibly going very big, with more of a phablet-sized iPhone 6 XL, along the lines of a Samsung Galaxy Note device. At the same time, Zigich imagines Apple also going much smaller, like with the iPhone 4, in a model that would be relatively cheap and allow Apple to better compete against cut-rate devices.

iPhone 6: The Video

Russian site AppleInsider.ru offers up a "hands-on" demo of the iPhone 6 via the video shown here.

The highlights: a 4.2-inch screen, stereo speakers on the back, 8 grams less of weight and a rainbow of color options. Not clear what became of the home button on this design.

As for when Apple might actually roll out an iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 or something else, guesses are all over the map, as outlined in our latest iPhone rumor rollup

Apple in in the fourth quarter outsold Samsung to become the leading cellphone vendor in the United States for the first time, with 17.7 million iPhones sold in the U.S. in in the fourth quarter.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
